Archaeology holiday in Greece
Most memorable for me, I would probably just go for the trip to Mycenae, as it had been a long-held wish to go there, and it didn't disappoint! (more)Neil Holt
This was about the best holiday I have ever been on; with excellent licensed guides informing us of the archaeology in the historical Peloponnese and in Athens. (more)Alan Wallis
Really good. Easily lived up to expectations. (more)Malcolm Torry
From €990 excluding flights
Greece cycling holiday, archaeology tour
Cycling through quiet countryside and seeing rural life, miles of apple, orange and olive trees, sheep and goats grazing, beehives everywhere, wild flowers, birds, lots of opportunities for sitting and drawing or dreaming. (more)Fiona Eccles
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
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. (more)Ellen Lambert
I cannot say enough good things about this trip – it was fantastic, a one of a kind experience, an informative and eye opening introduction to a most beautiful country, and a chance to slow down and enjoy the sights on foot and by bike. (more)Juli Morgan
From €990 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!
