Catalonia family mountain biking & activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? The atmosphere. The amazing biking. The friendliness of the Spaniards and our hosts. The excellent food. Tips? Make sure you research all there is to do so that you can take advantage of exactly what you like best. The region, in close proximity to Mas Pelegri, is absolutely full of incredible things to do, especially sporting activities. We were full to the brim AND we'd have liked to do more research even before going. Local benefits? Yes. By... (more)Jeneva Patterson
From €690 excluding flights
Amalfi Coast and Bay of Naples holidays
Memorable parts? Most exciting was definitely Walk of the Gods, from Bomerano where we stayed to Positano over 2000' down on the coast. Fantastic views surrounded by wildflowers and herbs, across precipitous slopes and finally descending steps through cacti gardens from Montpertuso. But I also have to say I was surpised by how attractive Naples was, with its very elegant seafront. Tips? The combination of mountains and coast means that you can experience every sort of weather in... (more)Juliet Dunn
From £949 - £1149 including UK flights
Altiplano de Granada activity holiday, Spain
We enjoyed the treks and had some good time to relax. (more)Hanh Nguyen
It couldn't have been better. A wonderful, wonderful family holiday (children 8 & 9). (more)Lyndsay Turley
We had a brilliant holiday. The food and hospitality were excellent and our hosts were intimately familiar with the language, locality, food, history and culture. The hotel is as off the beaten track as one could imagine and is in a tranquil and scenic setting. (more)David Graham
From €207 - €270 excluding flights
Family holiday in Thailand
Far beyond my expectations. Outstanding....Many memorable moments: from the home stay at Bangkok, to the food experiences, from the island hopping to the emerald pool. Maybe the best part was the people part: guides, drivers, locals were all very super helpful and kind. (more)Michael Fattore
We all thoroughly enjoyed every part of the experience and loved the intensity and variety of the well organised and full itinerary. (more)Caren Matthews-Lane
Most memorable were the palaces and temples of Bangkok, closely followed by the jungle walk! Best yet for all of us. (more)Barbara Chadband
From £1200 - £1900 including UK flights
Catalonia self guided walking holidays
I loved the walk along the rocky coast from secluded beach to secluded beach. Seeing nesting storks in the Aiguamolls national park was a highlight too! (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
It was the best holiday we have taken in many years. Cadacaue was the loveliest town I have ever seen and the hotel on the beach with the balcony views was equally exquisite. (more)Karen Balter
There were so many best bits it is hard to choose just one!! Perhaps one dramatic landscape after another, or was it the amazing food, or the super friendly people, or the lovely accommodations? (more)Debra Efroymson
From £378 - £674 excluding flights
Catalonia family activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? Staying in a welcoming and comfortable hotel in a beautiful part of Spain, with delightful hosts, and masses of available activities. Tips? Stay at here, it's great. Local benefits? Yes, all of the above. We booked several activities with local companies and ate in local restaurants. We were able to travel extensively by bike rather than car. Overall rating? Excellent. We have all returned fit, healthy and happy. (more)Mary Anne Roffs
From €690 excluding flights
Italian Alps inn accommodation in Piedmont, Italy
Gosh, difficult to say which part out of so many! I am reviewing the holiday five months later and still remember everything about our stay here. The delicious food and warm hospitality from the hosts, the beautiful scenery and the long walks will stay with me forever, I think. (more)Bill Reid
The kindness of our hosts, the nice balanced way they shared and included us in their individual enthusiasm and warmth, the pertinent information about local and Piemonte region, without coming too close were most memorable. Excellent holiday. (more)Anna Welsing
Whilst we have many very happy memories of our recent 5 weeks in Europe all involved voted that the week was 'the' most memorable. This was primarily a result of the passion that both Marla and Fabrizio bring to the running of the accommodation and to ensuring the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. Of course this professionalism is ably supported by the fantastic scenery and interesting history of the area. (more)Neal Dalgliesh
From €60 per couple per night
Cave accommodation in Andalucia, Spain
WONDERFUL. Out first three generation family holiday in several years and it couldn't have been better. (more)Melissa Elliott
It was good, for a week we lived like Hobbits in our home under the hill. For fans of Bilbo Baggins this is the place to be. (more)Susan Clack
A wonderful peaceful relaxing experience but also great fun for our children as they found much to enjoy (more)Brian Boyle
From £400 - £600 per week
Wildlife holiday in Sri Lanka, private departure
Memorable parts? Being at Mihintale on a Poya day was a great experience, seeing a historic site still attended and used as part of Sri Lankan culture, vibrant and busy with people celebrating family and practicing their faith. The walk at dawn over Horton Plains to the beautiful World's End. And you can't beat the Elephants. Tips? Do your research and discuss what you want out of your holiday with John. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. Local benefits? I think pretty... (more)Cara Foord
From £2095 including UK flights
Malaysia Tour
Best bit: The canopy walk in the jungle. (more)Nanette Cribbes
The most memorable part of my holiday is the night safari in Taman Negara and the snorkelling trip on the Perhentians. (more)Marleen den Hartog
The Perhentian Islands are breathtakingly lovely and so relaxing; the homestay was absolutely charming and we ate like royalty. (more)Graham Diggle
From £1020 - £1305 excluding flights
Tobago beach accommodation
This is an amazing place to hang out and bond with those you love. Beautiful, relaxing and a place you will hope to return to. (more)JUDITH DOYLE
The view from the accommodation was just amazing. The food was delicious and just the general relaxed vibe of the area and it's people!...10/10 without a doubt! Best holiday we've had! (more)Helen Youngman
Most memorable were the views from our house as well as the village where we stayed...Fantastic is the word. (more)Vlad Waley
From £85 - £225 per accommodation per night
Volunteering with bears in Romania
Bears! Bears ! Bears!......absolutely amazing to spend time with these wonderful creatures. (more)Sarah Burman
I have volunteered with other organisations in conservation and animal welfare and found in comparison the co-ordination for this was exemplary, the time working was balanced by time I had to wander the sanctuary or explore the surrounding area. Highly recommended! (more)Clanci Ferguson
Amazing! I was taking a year's sabbatical and this trip was the top of my list. It didn't disappoint and should be on every animal lover's 'bucket list'. I went for 6 weeks, returned for another 6 weeks the following year and fully intend to go back as soon as I can! (more)Estelle Barnes
From £1145 excluding flights
Volunteering with bears in Cambodia
I loved every second of my trip - the people, the country, the bears I worked with... (more)Louise Bednarz
Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds
We were so close to the bears and keepers that you feel part of the project rather than just a short stay helper. I think we were really lucky... to have the baby bear (Lola) arrive when we were there too. (more)Anon
From £595 excluding flights
Vietnam culture and beach holiday
It was excellent. I would definitely recommend this sort of tour for a first visit. We had never had a guide or arranged tour before so it really made the difference knowing that tours had been prepaid and pick ups and cars had been pre arranged. (more)Val Bodington
Both the visit to the Cu Chi tunnels and the day on the Mekong Delta was the most memorable. (more)Emma Miller
From US $1284 excluding flights
Walking holiday in Tuscany
Very good!....It was lovely to be looked after by the family at Braccicorti who housed and fed us wonderfully. Sara our guide took us to shops in the local area who sold local produce as well and we could buy some things like home grown sun dried tomatoes and red wine from the farm we were staying on. (more)Sue Haseltine
The only holiday I've even gone on that I would do again. (more)Mary Watkin
Most memorable was reaching the top of Monte Prado, the highest point in Tuscany and no other group in sight. The best kept secret, long may it continue. I plan to go back! (more)Marie Therese Filippi
From £849 - £1199 including UK flights
Umbria hotel, 15th century country hotel, Italy
This is a very special place. The staff are friendly and helpful in a quiet manner, respecting privacy whilst giving excellent service. Rates are reasonable. The hotel is an authentically and tastefully decorated and furnished renovation of an old country manor house (more)Paul Bish
The most memorable parts were the beautiful suite at the top of the fascinating building and the delicious food. The food and service was sooo lovely we ate there every night. (more)Sue Prince
A fabulous introduction to Umbria. Really want to re visit the area in the future. (more)Julie Ritchie
From €70 - €105 per double room per night
Kerala family activity holiday, India
I would thoroughly recommend it. We have no experience of this kind of undertaking and we had an exceptional time that catered perfectly for a family of 4 including an 11 year old girl and 14 year old boy who all valued the tour immeasurably. (more)hugh garling
Absolutely incredible! The children loved it (age 8 and 5) as well as the parents, we had so many rich experiences and wonderful stories to take home. (more)Sarah Bland
Excellent, it was so good. There is nothing I could fault everything met or exceeded our expectations, some of the main highlights were: the homestays, the food, the people, the variety of activities, visiting a local school and orphanage, elephants, the Ayurveda. (more)Juliet Shayler
From £980 excluding flights
Alentejo self catering cottage, Portugal
Memorable parts? Walking down to the spring-fed pool past a fig tree with fruit just coming into ripeness; picking and eating those figs straight off the tree. Tips? You need a car. The nearby town of Vila Vicosa is lovely, and the weekly farmer's market at Estremoz is really excellent. The little market in Borba is good too, but much smaller. Local benefits? Yes. probably in that order: definitely benefited local people, reduced impacts, and didn't have much effect on conservation.... (more)Richard Mansell
From €80 - €100 per cottage per night
Marine conservation holiday in Thailand
Memorable parts? Arrival at Koh Tao and finding the lovely coral sand beach behind the dive school at Chalok Ban Bay. Then, exploring the fascinating underwater environment. Tips? Go prepared to learn, there's loads of really interesting marine ecology information to learn as part of the Environment Management Programme. There are interesting and knowledgeable people there, who are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge. Enjoy the diving, safe in the knowledge that you are diving... (more)Stephen Orwin
From £695 excluding flights
Croatia holiday, Dubrovnik and the Dalmation Coast
Excellent trip - would recommend it to others. (more)Ann Williamson
Even better than expected. A lovely area to visit. The most memorable part was walking the walls of Dubrovnik - great views and lots of history. (more)Nick Ward
From £1049 - £1099 including UK flights
Jungle conservation & research, Peru
Memorable parts? Getting to spend time walking through the jungle and seeing so many great animals and birds. The best moments were the tree frogs, manu poison frog and the rainbow boa! I really enjoyed the construction of the bird hides and biogarden even though sometimes it was really hard work! Pancakes for breakfast were great! Tips? There was a lot of walking and physical activity so it’s really important to expect to do lots when you get there and probably need reasonable fitness! Local... (more)Melanie Veal
From £1095 excluding flights
Coast to coast self guided cycling holiday in England
Memorable parts? Hmmm, so many good bits. Seeing such diverse parts of the country with such different landscapes - all within 140 miles; having the route to ourselves most of the time; meeting the challenge of a three-day cycle with quite a lot of big hills; meeting lovely people; great B&Bs etc. I will definitely remember the torrential rain... Tips? If you have the time, consider taking an extra day. We underestimated how long it would take to complete each day's ride and would... (more)Biddy Walcot
From £300 - £380 excluding flights
Sea kayaking in Turkey
A brilliant trip. Got to get away from the crowded tourist areas and see the real beauty of Turkey. Really friendly and helpful guides and company owner who helped us with everything we needed and more. (more)Emma Borrows
An excellent guide who was knowledgeable about the environment, sights, history and culture of the region. Engin was able to entertain Adults and children alike with little surprises when energy levels were flagging. (more)Cathy Denney
From £60 - £250 excluding flights
Sea kayaking holiday on the Turquoise coast
Had a wonderful adventure! Would never have dared to do something like this without a proper guide who knows the area and the equipment. Very impressed with the beautiful Turkish coastline and inspired to return. (more)Helen di Lallo
Quite an adventure, and requiring a reasonable level of fitness. Fantastic scenery, perfect weather and great swimming and snorkelling opportunities. (more)Alice baverstock
Stunning coastlines and great people; my favourite part was kayaking into this fabulous cave where the light turned the whole cave a beautiful blue colour. (more)Ross Geraghty
From £499 excluding flights
Sicily walking holiday, Sicilian Volcanoes
Memorable parts? The optional trip on Etna was very interesting, even though we couldn't get to the top - trip notes need to be updated. Stromboli would have been great if it hadn't been cloudy! Tips? Be prepared for a lot of boat travel around the islands. Local benefits? Local people benefitted - restaurants & tour companies. Overall rating? Good! (more)Hazel Geatches
From £1199 - £1349 including UK flights
Wildlife conservation holiday in South Africa
Memorable parts? Working with people who are dedicated, informed and enthusiastic about conservation in a practical and realistic way. And of course, seeing the wildlife as they are meant to be. Tips? Be prepared for it to change your views on life. Local benefits? Many local people were employed in the reserve and the studies that were being carried out influenced how the reserve was managed and that benefited the locals. As the research carried out was the same as the normal... (more)Louise Sexton
From £1395 excluding flights
Volunteer with elephants in Thailand
Memorable parts? The whole trip was absolutely amazing. From the two days in Bangkok to the two weeks spent with the my Thai family and elephants in the elephant village. It is a trip my daughter and I will never forget. The most memorable moments for me must be riding my elephant into the river, washing her and afterwards as she grazed the afternoon away along the sides of the paddy feeds in the huge tropical landscape. Tips? To do it! It is an unbelievable way to get in touch... (more)Katerina Hudspeth
From £545 excluding flights
Holistic yoga retreat in Oxfordshire, UK
Amazing. For just a few days break I felt really relaxed and rejuvenated afterwards. (more)Claire Martin
It was great! The team of practitioners was great. The yoga, Chinese medicine and holistic voice workshops were great and very beneficial for body & mind. (more)Iris Oltheten
From £250 - £500 excluding flights
Volunteering in Thailand, wildlife rescue centre
I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. It’s hard to say what was the most memorable part of this holiday as there was so much variety and different experiences, it’s difficult to decide what was the best part of it. (more)Cathy Bisset
I had so many fantastic experiences, and the centre itself was in an idyllic area, on the grounds of a Buddhist temple. One highlight was spotting wild elephants in a nearby national park, after dark. (more)Olly Carney
From £549 excluding flights
Cycling holidays in France
Memorable parts? The ride from St Remy to Les Baux and back. Fantastic scenery - vineyard, olive groves, pine forests - and eventually Les Baux. Accommodation in St Remy was lovely - the best of the trip. Tips? Take your own bike - the rentals are heavy and cumbersome. If you don't have an odometer or GPS you MUST have a detailed map of the area. Trip maps are lacking, details are in kilometers, side roads are hard to find. If you are not packing a lunch - then be prepared to stop... (more)Sheila Anderson
From £670 - £795 excluding flights
