-Adrienne & Jonas, Sweden (traveled to India with their kids Alice, Emily and Adam)

Quivertree Family Expeditions put together an incredible itinerary for us as we undertook an epic tour across Morocco this spring with our kids aged 8, 10 & 11. The kids wanted to see camels and the adults wanted to see the architecture and we managed to see it all, and then some!”

-Sarah & Todd, Toronto, Canada (traveled to Morocco with their kids Evelyn, Adam and Jillian)


Our trip to Turkey with Quivertree was wonderful – definitely exceeded our expectations, which were high to begin with!  Our guide, Edip, and driver, Mr. Kenan, were terrific – competent and knowledgeable, and also patient with my son and me who always wanted to spend more time in every ruin and museum, and with Rowan, who behaved just the way a 10-year-old boy should! We got to experience aspects of Turkey we never would have found on our own. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip: ruins, museums, fantastic food, wine, friendly people, beautiful scenery, wonders of Cappadocia and Eastern and Western cultures.
I could go on and on, but the overall message is simple – Turkey was a wonderful experience and our trip with Quivertree was perfect!  The planning and organization made it relaxing as well as exciting. We’d love to go back!

-Marion (From North Carolina, USA who traveled to Turkey with her son Connor, daughter-in-law Beth, and their son, Rowan on a family adventure vacation)

Thank you Gideon for helping plan a memorable trip to Israel and Jordan.. The itinerary, hotels, transportation and guides were first class. The sights were great and the local knowledge was extensive. As well there was time to really appreciate all that surrounded us.  And thank you for all your assistance before, during and after the tour. Your tips on what to see and visit in Jerusalem was of great help. What a great city.

Charles and Jane (From Vancouver, B.C., who traveled to Israel and Jordan)

Trip was great!
We’re saving now for our next trip with Quivertree!

-Doug & Jessamyn, Plattsburgh, New York (traveled to India with their son Solomon)

When we started to plan our trip to India, Gideon was instrumental!  He showed us how he planned his trip to India with his wife and 3 children.  He clearly researched thoroughly where to go based on timing and fulfillment.  We followed in his footsteps for part of our trip and have no regrets!   We are so thankful to Gideon for his enthusiasm, tips and details while we planned each step of the way of our dream  trip to India.  Our bookings, drivers and tours were all handled very professionally and we were able to consult until our trip was perfect.
The service provided to us in India was outstanding!  We felt that we were truly taken care of by the drivers and representatives.  I wouldn’t hesitate to plan our next trip to India in the exact same way…and hopefully that’ll be SOON!

-Lu, Vancouver BC

We had a great experience in India. Our driver was excellent…I can’t imagine trying to drive in that chaos, but he did so with much dexterity. Our guides were all very good and the entire trip was coordinated very well. We loved Rathambore national park. Our group was in two separate jeeps and had different tiger experiences, but we all got to see a tiger on 2 out of 4 of our safaris. Truly awesome!

-Don and Danielle, Tennessee (traveled first to India, then South East Asia, Italy and China (!) with their sons Owen, William and Wyatt, and their niece, Kayla)

We had an amazing trip! Thank you so much for everything you and Gideon have done for us during all of our travels! These are experiences I will never forget!

– Kayla, Don and Danielle’s niece (see above)


Our family had an amazing trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, all planned by Quivertree to fit the needs of our family. As seasoned travelers we have high expectations and Quivertree exceeded our expectations on every front. They were wonderful to work with (pleasant, responsive, and helpful) and everything from the planning to the amazing travel experiences worked like clockwork. We truly felt taken care of the entire time we were on the trip, which allowed us to relax and have the trip of a lifetime! We plan to book with Quivertree whenever we travel to locations they service.

-Shari and David, San Diego California (traveled to South East Asia, and later to Ecuador with their sons Ryan and Sean)


First of all, we would like to THANK YOU for all the good choices you made and for the perfect organization for our trip to India.
We could not fault anything.
We were delighted by all our experiences and had the chance to have such a nice and knowledgeable driver, Shakti, that we definitely recommend.
It was an incredible trip and such a wonderful experience for the kids.
You really pay attention to every single detail, and make traveling as a family such a wonderful experience.

-Nathalie and Frederic, Luxembourg (traveled to India with their sons Benjamin and Valentin)

Our trip to Turkey was absolutely amazing! We had a fantastic time & just wish we could have stayed a bit longer.
We were very impressed with all of the history and the culture on a whole. Neither of us knew that much going in so we filled up on as much information from our guides as possible. And speaking of which, the guides were simply wonderful. They really helped us to get a better understanding of the culture & appreciate the country as a place we would definitely like to visit again.
Thank you again for creating such a wonderful holiday package for us!

-Greg and Malaika, Wichita, Kansas (traveled to Turkey with their son, Gabriel, and later to Vietnam and Guatemala)

Traveling with a teenaged and pre-teen son brings a challenge:  keeping everyone interested, engaged and happy.  When we decided to ask Quivertree to meet this challenge and show us Morocco in 13 nights, we knew this was a tall order.  Having just returned from our vacation, we can happily report that Quivertree exceeded our expectations, and put together a trip that we all thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish.  There were no disappointments, no glitches, only highlight after highlight. Kudos to Quivertree for customizing a trip to suit our tastes and for making it so memorable. We will cherish our memories of our Morocco trip always.

– Marty and Paulette, Vancouver, Canada (traveled to Morocco, and later Thailand, with their sons, Justin and Graeme)


We had a wonderful trip to Puglia in Italy.  The transportation was excellent and all of our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and just wonderful. Our bicycle tours were really wonderful. We had a special visit with our host, Clelia, and her family for our cooking lesson and dinner.  It was a treat to spend time with a whole extended Italian family, and the food was outstanding too!

– Karin and her son Jesse, Seattle, Washington (traveled to Italy)

It was a great trip.  Thanks so much for organizing it.  Everything was perfect, great staff, and we were really helped out in a jam on the multiple arrival times. The tour guides and drivers were superb.  Many great memories made!

– Mark and Jane, Blacksburg, Virginia (traveled to Guatemala with their daughters Grace, Anna and Kathryn)

We had an amazing journey filled with adventures and laughs creating life long memories.

Our apartment in Cape Town was perfect. The location was an ideal base for shopping,eating out and touring. The apartment was equipped with every amenity you could require and was professionally cleaned daily.
Garonga Safari Camp was exactly as it is shown on their website…..terrific! The staff were outstanding and the facilities were excellent. The 2 daily safaris were expertly hosted by our driver(Josiah) and tracker(Patrick). They really made the entire experience truly memorable.

-Gloria and Tim, Sydney, Australia (traveled to South Africa with their son, Joshua)

Thank you for a trip that had unforgettable experiences for each of us three. Our guide, Ehud, was encyclopedic in his knowledge, patient in his explanations and firm but gentle in his marshalling of us.
Everything – hotels, visits, scheduling – all went exactly accordingly to plan, from the first pick-up in the crush of arrival to the last good-bye at Ben Gurion Airport. When it appeared that some hitch might be cropping up, the directors and staff in your local office were there immediately (including once at 10 PM) to resolve it without any further ado. I will strongly recommend your trip to anybody else who is considering a visit to Israel.

-Pierre and Felice, Seattle, Washington (traveled to Israel with their grandson, Daniel)
