We did the Louvre treasure hunt with our two daughters (11 and 9) and we all had a blast and learned a lot. Especially on a day that was so crowded, it was great to have our amazing guide, Caroline, navigate us through the masses to see the main highlights of the museum but also teach us about some lesser known works and the history of the museum itself. A wonderful tour for a family.

We discovered Paris through its history, gastronomy and people. We baked bread, tasted and made chocolate, toured and tasted some of the best cheese shops, learned its history at the Louvre and Versailles, and made our own perfume! It was a perfect way to spark our kids imagination (Ages 6 and 9) in new ways. Thank you Family Twist for an excellent adventure!

Our Family Twist guide, Marguerite, was incredible. My husband and I travelled to London with 2 ten year old granddaughters. We spent 3 mornings with Marguerite. We did the Tower of London tour, the Westminister to Buckingham tour, and the Kensington Palace tour. They were all fantastic. Marguerite kept the girls engaged and taught them more than I would have thought possible. And, she could tell when they needed a little break, so we would stop and sit down and have a snack. The girls adored her. So did we. The tours are expensive but they are worth every penny (or pence as the Brits would say). The workbooks that the children receive make the experience even more meaningful for them. To see 2 ten year olds discussing the Stuart Kings at dinner, after a day with Marguerite, is priceless. If you ask for Marguerite, you will not be disappointed.

On behalf of Marguerite and all the people at Family Twist, we thank you very much for your comment. It is always a delight to see that our efforts in finding the right family-friendly guides and designing the game booklets are appreciated. Of course, we always test our activities with real families before proposing them to foreign families traveling with their children or grand children in order to make sure the timing, the momentum and the engagement rate of the children is perfect. But client satisfaction (both for adults and children!) is a priority so it always warms our hearts to know that we have succeeded in creating a fantastic family-bonding moment. So, once again, that YOU for this.

5. He has a very thorough answer to every question you ask, even where there is some controversy among experts. 4. He gives your kids a bunch of relevant (and age appropriate) quizzes and books keeping them engaged throughout the tour. 3. You eventually discover that he used to be a professional archaeologist. 2. He casually mentions that he worked on the excavation of the site you're looking at! 1. When you get back to your hotel and study the excellent book he gave you, you realize he's the author! Our family had a full-day private tour of Rome with Massimiliano from Family Twist and it was excellent. We'll definitely be looking at private tours from Family Twist for our next European vacation.

On behalf of Massimiliano and all the Family Twist team that has put together your experience in Rome, we thank you for your kind and honest feedback. Truth be told, we believe that the guides (or the instructors - chefs, art teachers etc - for our hands-on workshops) are the most important "elements" to create a perfect family-friendly experience. This is why we spend a lot of time selecting, training and testing our guides in all the destinations that we operate in. They are passionate about what they do and love to transmit their knowledge to the younger generations. We seek authenticity, flexibility and honesty in all the people we work with the aim to turn a family holiday into a wonderful and unforgettable family-bonding experience. Massimiliano enjoyed his time with you very much, and we all love to hear that you had a great time as it pushes us to take our dedicated family-travel expertise even further. We will be glad to welcome you on your next European vacation.
