Archaeology holiday in Greece
Fantastic, well organised, informative and great fun. Wonderful memories of our visit to the Peloponesse. (more)Gary Gleeson
The most memorable part of the holiday was our hike along the Lousios gorge that ended with a wonderful picnic among the ruins of Gortys, an ancient healing centre...We would rate the archaeology activity holiday overall as among the best holidays we've had in Europe. (more)Ellen Taylor
The people we interacted with throughout our holiday, including Christos and his father, the drivers, the specialized tour guides, the hotel staff, and restaurant and shopkeepers were extremely warm and friendly. (more)Randi Morrison

Greece cycling holiday, archaeology tour
Excellent- marvellous landscape, lots to see, good bicycle rides, meeting some special people, smooth service, many moving conversations and the pleasure of Greek life. (more)Helen Wells
Excellent. Good hotels, reasonably priced food, well maintained cycles (The best cycles we have ever hired). The sites of interest on our journey were better and better everyday. The holiday operator Christos was very knowledgeable and took us on a mini tour of The Corinthian Canal on our way back to the airport as a bonus on his own initiative. (more)Christine Mitchell

Greece archaeology and activity holiday
Memorable parts? I am planning to write a separate letter of thanks to our wonderful hosts, but I am happy to tell you that this vacation was our very best ever. My husband and I went with our 16-year old granddaughter. What was so great about the trip was that it appealed so much to all of us, despite our very different ages and different interests. The art we saw was of course amazing--Delphi, and Olympia, and the Parthenon, as well as the lesser-known archeological museum in Tripoli--it... (more)Ellen Lambert

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!

From £1079 - £1159 including UK flights
Peloponnese holiday, cultural tour in Greece
Excellent...Getting to Mycenae early enough to go straight to the top of the sight and having five minutes absorbing the atmosphere on our own. (more)Nicholas Rigby-Jones
The mountains around Nizwa in Oman and the night spent on the dhow off the coast near Muscat was the most memorable. (more)Vicki Neech
From £1399 - £1499 including UK flights
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 £899 - £1199 including UK flights
