Umbria cooking holiday, Italy
From
€1,190
excluding flights
The most memorable was the location and the kindest of attention shown. The service was so personalized which distinguishes this trip from many others I have had. (more)Simone Micallef
There are a number of memorable things - the house and it's very peaceful location, Marina and Gianlucca's hospitality; perhaps extra special were the cooking lessons in their superb kitchen followed by some excellent meals with great company. (more)Kevin Fidler
Do it. You will love it. (more)Ruth Kirkby
Mexico small group holiday, a food adventure
From
£1,121
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This was a food trip, and the food was fantastic. Our great guide, Fernando, took us to street food, markets, and restaurants--more than I expected. The cities of Puebla and Oaxaca are beautiful. For me high points were the markets and Monte Alban. Tips? 1) Check the exact date you are going. We happened to be on the one trip that started at a different hotel, and there was confusion. 2) Now there is an overnight bus from Oaxaca to Zipolite (apparently soon... (more)Nancy McCormick
Small group cooking holiday in Thailand
From
£2,225
including UK flights
I loved the Central Plains homestay, after Bangkok it was amazingly beautiful and peaceful. All the cooking schools were so beautiful and peaceful, and the food was amazing! (more)Suzanne Smith
The most memorable part of the holiday was definitely the cooking ... and all the eating. Swimming in the Andaman sea was also a real highlight. (more)Shelley Kennedy
The cooking and the eating were the most memorable! Fabulous. (more)Stacey Cooper

From
£1,515
excluding flights
Excellent. Pancham our guide was great too. (more)Alison Pick
How would you rate your holiday overall? One of the best (more)Mick Sanders
Most memorable was undoubtedly visiting the Taj Mahal, although the journey on the overnight train was a close, but completely contrasting, second. (more)Sarah Memery
Cambodia small group tour, a food adventure
From
£907
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were so many! The walks through food stalls, the cooking lessons, the impromptu stops of the bus to get more street food and going to a BBQ with locals at Siem Reap. Tips? Its a jam packed itinerary so if you need lots of downtime, it's probably not for you. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? It was really great. The only recommendation I'd have is to add in an Angkor beer tour in PP. (more)Lauren Supplee
South Indian food tour, Kerala

I would give this holiday a 5 star rating. From the flights to the hotels/homestays - everything was just amazing. (more)Karen Dickinson
Vietnam small group holiday, a food adventure
From
£1,143

It's generally expensive for the quality of services offered. Some of the food included on the trip was of very cheap quality. (more)Dima Srouri
I cant wait to do another one! (more)valenina giubilei
French Riviera holiday, with morning yoga
From
€805
excluding flights
Memorable parts? For me, staying at the hotel has re-written the rule book on the group activity holiday - something I have avoided up until now, as I have never wanted to spend 24/7 with a random group of people or be tied to a strict, laminated schedule. Everything about the week I spent in Saint-Jeannet surpassed my expectations. The accommodation was cosy and comfortable (and if you book a balcony room, I challenge anyone to find a better view!), the excursions were flexible, interesting... (more)Ali James
Cooking and walking holiday, Spanish Pyrenees
From
€1,195
excluding flights
EXCEPTIONAL. Exceeded my expectations on so many levels. From the quality of accommodation and attention to detail with all aspects of the week . (more)Deb Mickle
Breathtaking canyon walks far exceeding my imagination. Not forgetting having the experience of a lifetime as two Lamagayers (bearded cultures with 3metre wingspan) glided past me just a couple of metres away. Amazing. (more)Clare Cotton
Umbria cooking and painting holiday, Italy
From
€890
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This was my first trip to Italy, and as they say, first impressions do make lasting impressions. And Umbria was the right blend of beauty, serenity, culture and great cuisine. As a solo traveller, I basically wanted a relaxing break with some fun activities and learning too. I got all that and more with the Cooking and Painting holiday that I booked through Responsible travel, based at Podere le Olle in Umbria. I totally loved the experience, made especially memorable by... (more)Ambika Thandavan
Sicily yoga and cooking holiday, Italy
From
€1,810

Memorable parts? Vsit to a fish market with a chef, then cooking the fish in his restaurant. Tips? get fit and read some local history. Local benefits? Made a financial contribution to several small family busineses Overall rating? One of the best I have taken. (more)Ian Leeper
Cooking and cultural holiday in the Spanish Pyrenees
From
€1,295
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hiking in the fresh air of Spanish Pyrenees and being up close to many of the endangered lammergeier, or bearded vultures, soaring near the cliffs. There were a couple of times when we watched groups of three or four of these birds riding the thermals. Tips? Bring a pair of good, newish boots! One of my boot's sole separated on the first day of walking. Simon, one of he hosts, and I glued and taped it up for the next outing, however the sole from the second boot... (more)Ross Gould

From
£1,335

A most enjoyable experience, getting much closer to the local culture than a standard trip. (more)Andrew Jackson
The most memorable was either the natural beauty of Sri Lanka or our outstanding guide, Bala. My holiday was amazing. I am very glad I chose the tour I did and providence gave my group such a wonderful guide. (more)Naomi Day
The most memorable moment was the train journey through the tea hills and the Botanical Gardens in Kandy. (more)Bernice Gunn
