Jacada Travel recognizes there is a big world out there, with incredible opportunities for curious travelers to experience all it has to offer. It provides families with once-in-a-lifetime vacation itineraries that are luxurious, private and tailor-made to meet your family’s needs.


The company offers tours designed just for families to all parts of the world, taking the hard work out of planning so you can focus on what really matters — spending time together and having fun.


While Jacada doesn’t venture to every country in the world yet, luxury family vacations include itineraries to Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, Australasia and the South Pacific. There are even excursions to the polar regions and the Indian Subcontinent, including India and Sri Lanka.


The company can suggest tour itineraries or completely customize a trip to meet your specific needs or interests. They work closely with local guides and organizers to ensure you are getting a local experience that’s even more than what you were looking for. Travel designers help you take the leg work and guesswork out of your vacation by planning everything for you, including accommodations, private tours and restaurant reservations so you have a completely stress-free experience.


Families can work with a personal safari designer to book a private family safari in South Africa, Botswana, Kenya or Tanzania (which can also include neighboring Mozambique). These adventures let you see Africa’s most majestic animals like lions, cheetahs and elephants in their natural habitat, while seeing some of Africa’s most beautiful landscapes.

South American itineraries can include incredible destinations like the Peruvian Amazon, Lake Titicaca and Machu Piccu. Belize adventures will take you to explore Mayan ruins and visit incredible Caribbean beaches, while a tour of the Galapagos takes visitors on up-close local wildlife experiences, or whisks you away on a private cruise for a luxury tour of the islands.


Jacada also provides personalized vacations to 13 of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations, including Greece, Italy, France and Spain, while also offering trips to increasingly sought-after travel destinations like Croatia, Norway and Portugal.


Jacada’s tours come with hefty price tags (the private cruise of the Galapagos runs upwards of $23,000 per person) to accommodate the ultimate in privacy and luxury, but the experience will give your family the chance to see a side of a destination they may otherwise not have an opportunity to discover, resulting in a family memory everyone will cherish.
