Archaeology holiday in Greece
Excellent! Our group consisted just of my wife and I so we got personal service from Christos, the Company Operations Director, for the the whole week. The hotel we stayed in was very comfortable, the staff most attentive and the general atmosphere most congenial. (more)Julian Grubb
Excellent. One of my favourite holidays - I'd loved the Peloponnese when I went once as a child and it all lived up to my rose-tinted memories of the place. Two of us in the group had studied Classics which was our reason for going, and we weren't disappointed by the archaeological guides who took us round or the amount of time we had to explore for ourselves. As a company they were great at making sure we were taken care of and a great holiday. (more)Naranee Ruthra-Rajan
This was a wonderful holiday... The guides we had at the sites were excellent and our tour leader just great. The tour was quite simply more than we could have imagined! (more)Alison Marshall
From €1150 excluding flights
Turkey cultural tour holiday
There were many highlights of our holiday. Istanbul was an interesting and colourful city to visit, especially the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. Cirali Beach was quiet and very relaxing. We went on a boat trip on day, spending 8 hours out, exploring different bays, swimming in the clear blue sea and eating a fresh fish dinner on board. (more)Jean Tallis
The scenery was fascinating - from the calcium pools in Pamukkale, through high mountains to the wonderful landscape of Cappadocia. (more)Rosemary Shippard
The itinerary was well done and we had the opportunity of visiting a variety of natural and historical sites and learn about life in present and past Turkey, which is a very diversified country with a lot to offer (more)Antonio Matos
From £1350 - £1600 excluding flights
Nile cruise holiday in Egypt
Memorable parts? The attention given to us by our leader Mohammed he made sure we did not miss anything Tips? This is not a relaxing holiday there are early starts and long days but well worth it the train journey is long and not smooth all the way Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? 5 star apart from the train journey. Saw everything we wanted plus more. It was a fabulous holiday, Mohammed is so knowledgeable - he is a credit to your company. Well done!

Peloponnese holiday, cultural tour in Greece
Memorable parts? The mountains around Nizwa in Oman and the night spent on the dhow off the coast near Muscat. Tips? Up until the end of October, Oman is still hot, so don't take too many warm clothes. Also, although a sleeping bag is recommended, it is not really necessary for camping. Local benefits? Oman has a problem disposing of garbage and there is no recycling yet, so I feel we contributed to the problem by using bottled water. Also, driving on beaches and sand dunes... (more)Vicki Neech

Sicily tour, classical Sicily
Very busy, as expected, but very enjoyable (more)Simon Phillips
Good - enjoyed it.... For me the ascent of Etna was one of the highlights. (more)Laurence Cale
Visiting outstanding classical sights such as the quarry in Syracuse where 7000 athenians were enslaved was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Adam Patchett
From £1233 - £1278 including UK flights
