DuVine’s family tour collection expands with scheduled and private departures designed for families with kids, teenagers, young adults or multiple generations:

 

Greece Family Yacht + Bike Tour

Provence Family 4-Day Bike + Adventure Tour

An abbreviated version of the popular tour, this itinerary takes your family to the sunny south of France in the Luberon Valley. Travelers will tour underground ochre caves in Gargas, canoe at Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, hike the Ochre Trail and do a ropes course in Rustrel, called the Colorado of Provence. Evenings are spent at accommodations at La Coquillade and trying local fare like tapenade, pissaladière and ratatouille. Departure June 28–July 1, $3,995 per person.

 

Puglia Family Bike + Adventure Tour

Offered for the first time on a public basis, this tour takes travelers to the heel of Italy’s boot to sample fresh mozzarella from a family farm and a night sleeping in a traditional trullo (Apulian dry stone hut) in the UNESCO-listed town of Alberobello. Snorkel the sunken ruins of Egnazia and horseback ride in the Otranto countryside. July 5–10, $4,495 per person.

 

Holland Family Bike Tour

Immerse your family in Dutch culture by making cheese in Gouda, baking bread and playing lawn games during this trip designed for all ages. Cycling is gentle along car-free paths, country lanes and polders. Between rides, paddle a kayak down the canals of Utrecht, visit a working windmill and dine with a local chef at her home in Utrecht. Private tour available upon request, $4,495 per person.
