Does your family have a competitive side? Are you all fans of the TV-show, “The Amazing Race?” Then we’ve found the next family vacation for you. Competitours takes teams on a wild vacation adventure across multiple destinations in Western Europe. And it’s not just about the surprise locations and challenges. Families can win a cash prize at the end of the 11-day adventure, too!
How It Works
Competitours sets up specific tour dates for teams of two (you could do mom and daughter versus dad and son, or any combination you want!). All ages are welcome to participate, though the company advises that all guests be healthy and able to travel easily. The journey is 11 days long and teams will visit seven to eight mystery destinations in Western Europe. At the end, the top three teams to have completed all of the challenges in a timely manner will win up to $3,600.
Teams will be required to tackle challenges throughout the trip. These may include mountain climbing (with a harness and leash), fencing, cooking, arts and crafts, dancing, puzzles, scavenger hunts and other creative and fun tasks. They are all suited for most ages.
During your trip, all lodging, challenges, inter- and intra-city transportation, and some meals (eight breakfasts, two dinner and one dessert reception) are included. However, teams must pay for the rest of their meals, some city transportation, all cell phone, Internet or communication devices, personal expenses (laundry, toiletries, souvenirs, etc.) and some of their airfare.
