What’s the typical morning on a family tour? We’ve taken 6 RS tours and have usually had to be ready to either check out of lodging or be on the bus for a group thing between 8-9am everyday. I enjoy the early morning wake-ups but on the last two tours we took to Ireland and Scotland, there were some teens who had a particularly hard time with the early morning departures.
So I’m curious if every morning on a Family Tour, which are 10 and 14 day trips, is an early morning wakeup. If you took your young children on one, how did they handle the schedule?
We want to take our two grandchildren on a RS family tour in 2021 or ‘22, whenever they start back up again. They’ll be 10 and 12 and aren’t really morning people. But their normal school day starts at 7:20am so I know they’ll do it when they have to. They’ve traveled internationally before but it’s been to beach vacation spots like Belize and Cancun. Lately they’ve been showing interest in the culture of other countries and did very well on an organized tour thru the jungle to see Mayan ruins. So we want to introduce them to Europe when it’s open to us.
