Family Vacations include Space Center Visits and Duck Tours on

Paris, France (June 25, 2010)—More family-friendly activities ranging from Disneyland excursions and theme park adventures to duck tours, helicopter tours, swimming with dolphins and space center visits are now available on the website of City Discovery, activity- and ground transportation-provider in 80 countries.

"Family vacations are definitely a trend on City Discovery," said Alessia Bianco, contract manager at City Discovery. "Ease of booking, kid-friendly activities, and quality of tours combined to encourage traveling with kids. This summer we improved and diversified our lineup of family-oriented activities to keep up with demand."

From almost 50 theme park activities available on the website, trips to Sentosa Island in Singapore, and Cici Aqua Park in Acapulco are the most popular. Other theme park activities are Universal Studios Japan Train and Hotel 2-Day Package Tour from Nagoya and the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park in Kuala Lumpur.

Over 60 helicopter tours are available in top cities such as Dubai, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Las Vegas, Melbourne and Phoenix. According to Alessia, these activities also attract families who wish to cultivate their children's sense of adventure. Grand Canyon Helicopter Adventure, for example, allows travelers to see the deepest portion of the Grand Canyon including breathtaking views through the Dragon Corridor and the North Rim.

On, over 40 dolphin encounters and swimming with dolphins are available in 21 cities including Orlando, Los Cabos, Singapore, and Papeete of the French Polynesia.
