Trinidad and Tobago bird watching holidays
It was a birding holiday, so the birds were simply amazing and I took 7500 pics! (more)Lang Stewart
Our expectations for this bird watching holiday were fully realised. The birds were wonderful, the guides excellent. (more)Brian Good
We had a 2 week trip and saw 191 different species of birds. In a trip like this where so much is new and exciting the opportunity to see so many new things became the pleasure of trip. The guides were extraordinary. All of them were skilled, dedicated and knowledgeable, and were able to locate what they were looking for. (more)Beverly Tabor
From 2295 - 2995 including UK flights
Trinidad and Tobago holidays
The specialist guides at the naturalist sites were exceptionally knowledgeable and all our guides were friendly and helpful. And what interesting places Trinidad and Tobago are. (more)Sabrina Aaronovitch

The most memorable part was mi xing with the local people, both through our 11 days of excursions using wonderful Domincan guides, and simply talking to people and drinking with them in a village bar at Carnival time. (more)Charles Moberly
Try to get to know the people who live near your accommodation. Dominicans are very friendly and love to share their lives with you. (more)Joan Rule
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. (more)Jean Powell
From 2650 - 2995 including UK flights

From 2395 - 3150 including UK flights

The best part was Havana. Everything about Havana, the tour in the old American car was great but we loved just wondering around. (more)Jo McKeown
Cuba is amazing, I was delighted that I booked through responsible travel. (more)helen lowe
The most memorable will be all of the Vintage Cars running around all of Cuba; the pony and carts, bicycle taxi's, pedestrians and horses coming towards you on the wrong side of the road... (more)Elayne Farmer
From 1798 - 3779 excluding flights

FABULOUS ADVENTURE & I WILL BE USING RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL AGAIN! (more)Stephanie Hurlburt
Exceptional in every way - nature, people, variation, history and organisation....The whole holiday was memorable! The fact that we were a small group, and that the destinations and activities were so varied, were important, but in particular the guide was first class. (more)John Bates
From US $1250 excluding flights
Trekking holiday in Cuba
Memorable parts? Certainly interesting was the venture to see Castro's headquarters in Alta Naranjo. Tips? Ask cost of tour before accepting offered tours. The city tour of Holquin, was more expensive than I would have thought. It was not clear to me when we were dropped off, that it was/ was not included in our payments. Also, I definitely think the trek should be condensed into 2 days in the park and not 3. When we were there we met a large UK group who did it in 2 days, and... (more)Christina Parsons
From 275 - 555 excluding flights
Tobago beach accommodation
There is a lot to do on the island but just relaxing and doing nothing was also lovely as the accommodation was very comfortable. (more)Penelope Robinson

From 1345 excluding flights
Cuba cycling tour
I thought it was excellent, really well organised with the right balance of culture, history, cycling and relaxing. (more)Kirstin Carmouche

From 2239 - 3149 including UK flights
Cuba holiday, small group tours
Visiting Santa Clara and seeing the Che Guevara Mausoleum and statue was the most memorable part of the holiday...10/10. Absolutely perfect. (more)Genevieve Isherwood

From 1695 including domestic flights only
Cuba homestay holiday
Hopping in a Coco taxi in Havana? Playing on stage with a band in Trinidad? Zooming down highways on a rented scooter? Haggling for tomatoes in the market in Cienfuegos? Dancing to reggaton in the Government-run CD shop with the assistants? Meeting a tree rat? Having a coffee with an 82-year old tobacco farmer in his farm? (more)Will Lockhart
Time in Havana was fantastic, the city is so vibrant and full of music on every corner. Another high point was going to the city/town of Trinidad which is amazing. (more)Katherine Smith

Caribbean nature tour, Lesser Antilles
Fantastic, just wish we had had more time on both islands. (more)Jacqui Smith
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. (more)Jenny Campbell
From 2795 - 3175 including UK flights
Walking in St Lucia
Memorable parts? Reaching the top of Gros Piton. Tips? Go for it! Local benefits? The whole issue of environmentally friendly tourism is a complex one. In many ways there are benefits in that local people get much needed employment and sometimes improved amenities and infrastructure. But these changes don't always benefit those most in need and fail to filter down to ordinary people. We hiked off the beaten track and saw parts of the island that the 'normal' tourist (whatever... (more)Margaret Gravelle
From 545 - 4089 excluding flights

Some of the most memorable parts of the holiday were BBQ suckling pig dinner 'al fresco' in Baracoa and the Cuban cabaret in Havana ('live' Cuban band and 'living legends' singing). (more)Lisa Loh

Trinidad Carnival was the most exciting part of the holiday....Outstanding. (more)Pam Johnston
From 1735 - 1975 excluding flights
Scuba diving and tour in Cuba
The most memorable part was the few days spent in Trinidad. Truly beautiful city, lots of restaurants, good nightlife, and great location for day trips to beaches or mountains. (more)Kelvin Eaton
The most memorable parts of the holiday were... diving in the Bay of Pigs (wrecks, rays, turtles, amazing coral)... by chance being in Vinales during its local festival with street stalls, funfair, live music and dancing...It really was the holiday of a lifetime. (more)Catherine Shaw
Great time for all, with a balanced programme that was enjoyed by everyone in our family. (more)Nicolas Raynaud
From 1040 - 1720 excluding flights
Cuba cultural tours
I still can't believe I have been to Cuba and back. I would urge everybody who is thinking of going to Cuba, go and book your holiday now, you will not regret it. We had a fantastic guide and had a lovely time out there. The weather, food, people, music and art, buildings, parks, everything is beautiful. (more)Kim Davies

Cuba small group holidays
It was all fantastic - it's impossible to identify one particular aspect as Cuba is such a diverse and fascinating country, from the landscape to the architecture and the people. It was an excellent holiday. Go to Cuba as soon as you can - it's marvellous! (more)Katherine Fisher
Being let loose in Havana was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Ian Macbeth
Excellent from start to finish. (more)Ian Roderick
From 1999 - 2799 including UK flights

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 - 1249 excluding flights
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 $12 - US $70 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
Bahamas Windjammer sailing holiday
Memorable parts? The Bahama islands and waters are so beautiful making it an incredible place to adventure around on a sailboat. It was nice to get to know our fellow passengers and be a brief part of their lives. The crew was especially wonderful. They were helpful, hardworking, knowledgeable, kind and so much fun to get to know. The food was outstanding. Tips? Know that you are living on a sailboat for the week and your sleeping accommodations are tight. This is not a problem... (more)Janice Layne
From US $1299 excluding flights
Cuba holiday, small group
10 out of 10 (more)Yvonne Manuel
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
From 1205 - 1485 excluding flights
Cuba small group tour
Memorable parts? Vinales Tips? Don't expect luxury but enjoy what is given you; you will find it rewarding Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? Just what I wanted (more)Richard Hotchkis
