Dominica nature holiday
Memorable parts? The whole two weeks was both memorable and exciting! The sheer beauty of Dominica with it's rainforests, mountains and rivers; the fantastic array of tropical flowers, the wonderful bird-life, and the feeling of being a traveller, not just a tourist. It felt as if we were in Paradise and somewhere completely different. The food was wonderful and the people friendly. I felt I had never eaten healthier - different freshly squeezed fruit juice everyday and everything freshly... (more)Jean Powell

Tailor made walking & sightseeing tours in Cuba
Very interesting and enjoyable trip, well organised so that everything ran smoothly. The guide was very good. The best part was meeting Cuban people, who were very friendly and keen to practise their English (more)Janet Galloway
The variety of the programme - the buzz of Havana - the Cuban people that we met - the guide that accompanied us all week could not be faulted - he made every effort to make sure we maximised our time in his country. The local guides we met were very knowledgeable, warm and open. (more)Christine Giles
We had a great time in Cuba, seeing a wide range of places in Havana old-town, the Mountains and tobacco farms in the north and a few Caribbean beaches along the way. (more)John Eykelenboom

Excellent. Great homestays, great guide, met lots of friendly people, interesting excursions, plenty of opportunities to learn about Cuba and many many chances to enjoy Cuban food, rum and salsa. I can't wait to go back. (more)Naranee Ruthra-Rajan
This was a fantastic trip and I wish I had gone on the 15 day one. Our guide was superb, the levels of organisation were brilliant and the company is very efficient...For me, the most enjoyable evening was our tour and meal out at an organic market garden in the Vinales valley. The welcome was great, the food was fantastic and we played lots of dominoes and salsa-ed a lot whilst an enormous thunderstorm rolled round the hills. (more)Clare Morley
Excellent...Staying in the guest houses, observing local life/cultur and being part of life in Cuba made this holiday memorable. (more)Rachel Grubb

Overall, a brilliant trip ! We enjoyed the beautiful unspoilt beach and sea at the end of our trip...The country is beautiful, the inhabitants are extremely friendly, our guide and the bus driver were both fantastic (more)Xavier Pujos
It was a great trip, despite a lot of bussing around: fascinating; frustrating; beautiful; run-down; bubbling with friendliness; yet often like a living corpse. Not a gourmet paradise but lots of great music. (more)Andrew James
For us day one was fantastic with the open top American cars coming to take us for a trip wow. The other highlight was swimming in the fresh water rivers. (more)Elizabeth Morgan
From £1669 - £1959 including UK flights

From £1741 - £2209 including UK flights
Cuba tours
It was our home whilst we were there - in each casa - we were made to feel we were really at home whilst still being free to come and go wherever and whenever we wanted. (more)Charles Butler
We loved the contrast between Havana and Trinidad, and the fact that both places are so different from anywhere else we have visited. The Sugarmill Valley near Trinidad has stunning scenery but we also got a real sense for the terrible treatment & hardship suffered by the slaves. (more)Hattie Siigers
I especially enjoyed our 4 nights in Trinidad as it offered a good blend of sights, beach and culture. Havana was amazing for its architecture and night life. (more)Janice Katelaris
From €640 excluding flights
Western Cuba small group tour
Memorable parts? Cuban Music, variety of venues. Tips? The daily outlay during the first eight days was under budget, on reaching the final destination in Havana it went over budget. Be prepared. Local benefits? Would agree that the use of Paladars fed money back into the community. No perceived heavy impact on the environment. Overall rating? Very highly. It was extremely varied always interesting. The tour guide, Bill Hill was exemplary, he provided excellent local... (more)Anthony Haugh
From £0 including UK flights

Cuba cycling tour
Memorable parts? Dancing salsa outside in Granada after a lovely meal, mojitos and cycling. Tips? Take a padded cycle seat but you don’t need to be cycle-mad. Read up about Cuba as it is a fascinating country and this tour offers a good chance to find out about this country as well as to explore on a bike. Take your dancing shoes. Be ready to accept the country with all its pros and cons. Local benefits? Yes provided local employment and local restaurants and hotels used.... (more)Melanie Jefferson
From £2049 - £2599 including UK flights
Cuba self drive holidays
Self driving out of Havana on the road to the South was the most memorable (more)Alastair Carmichael
The most memorable part of the holiday was bumping into a great Cuban band practising in the afternoon before their evening gig. They were joined by a large group of school children who immediately started to salsa. (more)Polly Perkins
Most memorable was Las Terrazas. Beautiful place and a fascinating experiment by the Cuban government - both in biological and social terms. Excellent hotel too. (more)Paul Chinnock
From £1025 - £1890 excluding flights
Trinidad & Tobago tours, tailor made
The turtle watching was amazing and emotional, watching these pre-historic animals, heave their bulk ashore to lay their eggs, we felt very privileged to witness this...It was excellent, it surpassed our expectation. (more)Laraine Bridges
Trinidad Carnival was the most exciting part of the holiday....Outstanding. (more)Pam Johnston
From £1620 - £1850 excluding flights
Cuba holiday, small group
The most memorable part of the holiday was the friendliness and openness of the people - in the street as well as ones we met more formally through homestays and tours. The music in every bar - some cheesy - some excellent. (more)David Jockelson
We had an excellent time and made some good friends. The leader was very good and did her best to advise, inform and enthuse us at every turn. She was honest, open and did her best to pass on her enthusiasm for her country, while being prepared to discuss its idiosyncrasies in an informative and thoughtful way. (more)Sarah Walker
Most memorable parts were being taught salsa, merengue and reggaeton by the locals, diving off the coast of Trinidad, having a barbeque on our own private beach and visiting our tour leader's farm and meeting his family and friends. (more)Suzy Gray
From £1008 - £1185 excluding flights
Small group tour to Cuba
Memorable parts? Too many to list, but the airport episode and the plane journey from Baracoa to Havana is up there with the most memorable and incredibly exciting! Hugging an iguana was pretty different, smoking Cuban cigars and drinking Havana Ron (and loving it) is very different to my everyday life. The scenery is spectacular, the homestays are excellent, and the availability of options for what you would like to do in particular areas is great. Tips? This is Cuba....don't expect... (more)Yvette Chambers
From US $1940 including domestic flights only
Caribbean nature tour, Lesser Antilles
Memorable parts? Very difficult to say as there was more than one. The whales put on a great display for us, and a huge rainbow curved along the coast while we were at sea. On Antigua we swam with rays, not included in the holiday, and a great experience. On the rainforest walk on St Lucia we were lucky enough to see the St Lucia parrot. We will always remember the open boat trip to the frigate bird colony on Barbuda for the squall that hit us on the return journey! Monsterrat was memorable... (more)Jenny Campbell
From £2650 - £2975 including UK flights
Cuba small group holidays
Excellent from start to finish. (more)Ian Roderick
Great - interesting country. Havana old city was the most memorable part. (more)Dorothy Woods
From £1899 - £2459 including UK flights
Cuban adventure holiday
Horse-back riding and galloping through the fields and valley of Vinales was the most memorbale part of the holiday (more)Felicity Hay
Cruising in the 1950's cars was absolutely amazing - this is a must in Havana!!! Also loved the horseback riding in Vinales - Che's monument - Trinidad was fun, lots of music/salsa dancing there. (more)Noula Contibas
The most interesting place on this tour was Trinidad. It had a lovely, chilled atmosphere and was a well maintained city, where the people were friendly. (more)Rebecca Clarkson
From £599 excluding flights
Cuba budget holiday
The whole experience was amazing. Cuba is a fantastic place to go and one which is going to change so dramatically in our lifetimes. The atmosphere across the whole island was so warm and vibrant, with live music being heard on every street corner. (more)Faye T
Wandering the cobbled streets of Havana and Trinidad. Jungle walks near Trinidad and Baracoa. Staying with friendly hosts in their own homes. (more)Helen Peake
Most memorable was swimming in a cave, with bats over head! Meeting people from completely different cultures (and dancing with them...) (more)Cheryl Cohen
From £999 excluding flights
Small group backroads and beaches tours to Cuba
Memorable parts? Definitely climbing Cuba's highest peak, Pico Turquino. It was a stunning walk to the refugio where we stayed the night and then a tough climb up to the peak before a leg wobbling descent - stopping for some great local food on the way down - I've never been so hungry and it was delicious! We all felt a real sense of achievement afterwards. The guides were great, and the hospitality at the refugio was really fantastic. The visit to Comandancia De Plata was absolutely fascinating,... (more)Jemima Headey
From £1198 - £1539 including UK flights
Central Andros Island beach resort, Bahamas
This lodge felt like being 15 years old again and going to an ocean science camp. Very warm interaction among couples, families and dive staff every night over unlimited cocktails and conch fritters, fresh fish, local Bahamian dishes, fresh salads, and many desserts. Lobster, Turkey, and Beef Filets were served for our Thanksgiving Feast as well as 23 dessert choices! Only 20 beach front cabins are available and this is perfect. The REEF is pristine and abundant coral life abounds. It's a wonderful... (more)Jan Means
From US $260 - US $285 per person per night
Dominica ecolodge holiday
Searching for whales, being greeted by dolphins, snorkelling above seahorses leave a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I feel truly privileged to have been a part of the ecolodge and Dominican way of life, even if it was just for 2 weeks. (more)Nicola Beldham
We had a wonderful time at the eco lodge in Dominica; I can't recommend this highly enough. It's beautiful, unspoiled, and absolutely perfect for families, and is a genuine example of positive interaction with the local community and environment. (more)Lee Jenkins
The whole trip was amazing the tree house, the family dinners, the fruit, the waterfalls. (more)Rachel Donahue
From US $8 - US $60 per accommodation per night
Weddings in Tobago
Memorable parts? Getting married at the retreat, Tobago Tips? Maybe the 'steep' climb from the beach to the accommodation might be a problem for some people. But as for everything in Tobago, for every problem Tobagonians will find a solution. Prepare for mosquitoes during day and night time. Local benefits? Yes. The accommodation is build by local people, staff is local and locally owned restaurants and shops do benefit as well. Overall rating? We spend a great two... (more)Bart De Visser
From £750 per wedding ceremony
Cuba cycling holiday
Most memorable were cycling 85 km along the coast road on the third day between the ocean and the mountains, the great music and dancing...Jazz in Camaguey, staying in the Casas. Fantastic fun and a great crowd of people. (more)Nuala Galazka
Cuba is a fantastic holiday destination and well suited to cycling. The trip was extremely well thought out and well organised. Superb! One of the best holidays I have been on. (more)Lauren Barker
The most memorable parts were the history of Cuba and the cycling. (more)Shirley Howdle
From £1845 - £1895 excluding flights
Cuba dance holiday, Rum & Rumba
Memorable parts? I have many memorable times from the trip. One of them was the surprise beach party at sunset not far from Trinidad: joined by 2 great musicians, we enjoyed mojitos, bbq and beach fire. The other one is when our guide invited us to his family house to share dinner and dancing in Camaguey. Tips? Don't hesitate, these guys are awesome! Local benefits? We stayed in casa particular for the whole trip and often ate in paladars. Overall rating? Perfect (more)marion chazotier
