what zoom for travel?

currently using a 24-105 on my 5D3, which is great, but heavy and a little restricted for travel.

Currently enjoying the fixed lens of the Fuji 100S too, and wanting excellent image quality but a bit more range, so whats the best zoom compromise to get better than compact quality without breaking the bank?

is the 24-105 the best bet, or has anyone tried things like the Tamron (or other alternatives) to get extended zoom range without having to carry a host of lenses?  Don't get me wrong, if I'm going out to take photos then I don't mind taking more gear, but mostly I'm out doing other stuff or with family or travelling and so need a simpler package.....
