I've spent countless hours planning trips for with my two children and I'd love you to be able to experience these itineraries -please steal!
On this trip, we ventured from Vienna to Slovenia to Croatia and it was one of the most visually stunning trips we've ever taken. The orange roofs of the Croatia coast line set against the deep blue azure of the Adriatic sea was breathtaking. One of the highlights of travel with my kids happened on this trip - we went to a Viennese Ball! It was well worth the tux rental (in the US) and extra baggage!

If you’ve been dreaming of a trip to the either Petra or the Pyramids, this trip is for you! This 9-day adventure combines the history of both the Pyramids of Giza, Egypt and Petra in Jordan. The trip is full of wonder and discovery at both of these sights.
Italy is truly the country of dreams - I combined the history and awe inspiring sights of Rome and the Vatican with a beach holiday on the Amalfi Coast. This trip is great for kids as well - you can temper the museums and history with lots of fun activities and a beautiful beach to boot!
Turkey seems to still fly a bit under the radar with US tourists, but it's one of safest, most beautiful places we've been. We went to Istanbul for the history and mosques and then to Cappadocia for the underground cities and balloon rides and finished up in Fethiye at a beautiful beach resort.
