I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Family holiday in Thailand
From
£1,350
including UK flights
Far beyond my expectations. Outstanding....Many memorable moments: from the home stay at Bangkok, to the food experiences, from the island hopping to the emerald pool. Maybe the best part was the people part: guides, drivers, locals were all very super helpful and kind. (more)Michael Fattore
We all thoroughly enjoyed every part of the experience and loved the intensity and variety of the well organised and full itinerary. (more)Caren Matthews-Lane
Most memorable were the palaces and temples of Bangkok, closely followed by the jungle walk! Best yet for all of us. (more)Barbara Chadband
Jordan holiday, a week in Jordan
From
£1,299
including UK flights
The most memorable moment was Petra. The wonder of the world. (more)Anil Kashyap
Visiting Petra and having two full days to explore were the most memorable parts of the holiday (more)Susan Young
The walk into Petra is just breath-taking and there is something new to see every time you turn a corner. (more)Joanne Offer
Rajasthan and Taj Mahal tour
From
£900
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The wide variety of different experiences of place, people and food enjoyed within a relatively short period. The most important contributor to this was of course an excellent and friendly guide, who I would thoroughly recommend to others. Tips? Time spent agreeing a personal itinerary and checking the hotels booked is always well spent. Everyone wants something slightly different and a tour organiser will need advice to provide the best mix. Local benefits? I... (more)Gerry Scott
Sri Lanka holiday, island explorer
From
£2,190
including UK flights
Sri Lanka had everything we love in a holiday, Culture, Wildlife, lush contryside and beautiful beaches. The forest lodge in Habarana was excellent off the beaten track with wonderful hosts. Seeing the baby turtles hatching at Rekawa and the leopard at Yala was also an exciting experience. (more)Amanda Law
Most memorable was the variety of landscape in Sri Lanka, the cave temple at Damballa, the train journey from Kandy, the views from Ella, the night stay in the tree house camp in Yala national park and seeing leopards, elephants and beautiful birds on safari in the park. (more)Barbara Essam
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Sri Lanka and the tour aspect was well organised. We particularly enjoyed the variety of activities and accommodation. Best bits were the trip to the rock fortress and Yala where we saw leopards and a big black bear which apparently was very rare. (more)jude parsons
Cambodia highlights tour, 7 days
From
£750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The sites I visited in Cambodia were spectacular, and being able to just relax knowing that my tour operator was looking after everything was so valuable for me. They made me feel truly immersed in the local environment, food, people in a very short time (1 week) and I loved my tuktuk trips just taking in the scenery. Tips? Trust the tour operator choices for food and sites to visit. People who usually manage their own trips (like me) may tend to be drawn to tourist... (more)Andrea Vogel
Ethiopia holiday, tailormade
From
£2,483
excluding flights
Great trip! We loved the country and everything it has to offer! We couldn't recommend it more! Eskinder organised the tour perfectly and it all ran very smoothly. (more)Olivia Wilkinson
It was a splendid holiday very well organised by the operator. The company is run by Eskinder Hailu Senebata who is a delightful man, who answered all our questions most professionally and on meeting turned out to be a most interesting man. (more)Colin Luke
Experiencing the people and culture was the most memorable part of my trip. (more)Dean Moore
Cambodia holidays, Phnom Penh & Angkor
From
£1,850
including UK flights
Because we were a small group, we were able to change the itinerary and instead of visiting one of the main temples, we went 'off the beaten track' and travelled to a temple way out of Siem Reap without any tourists there. It really felt like we made our own discovery! (more)Thamar Smit
Tourism is an important employer in Cambodia so our staying in small hotels and using local guides, river boats, the bamboo train etc were all supportive. (more)Andrew Whitrow
Fantastic window into cambodia. we needed a few days on a thai beach to assimilate it all. (more)Anna Bradley
Peru holiday, Cusco to Lake Titicaca
From
£1,095
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The trip up to Machu Puchi, our guide Wilfredo was very knowledgeable and stopped to let us drink in the pure awesomeness of it all and when we reached the top the feeling was surreal and brought not just a lump to my throat but a tear to my ear. Tips? Take plenty of insect repellent as the mosquitos are in their millions Local benefits? Peru's main economy is from mining but all our guides stressed how important tourism is to their country Overall rating? My... (more)John Hawkins
Hanoi to Da Nang tour in Vietnam
From
£1,900
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Sitting in a restaurant in Hoi An overlooking the river at night; Trying local dishes at each place we visited. (Try the Hue pancakes!) Walking around Hoi An's old quarter. Visiting the My Son ruins early in the morning to get there ahead of the heat and other tourists. (The itinerary showed that visit as an afternoon trip but the guide suggested we go early in the morning which was a great idea and meant we had it almost to ourselves.) Tips? Take the opportunity... (more)Sue Pidgeon
Albania holidays, small group tour
From
£869
including UK flights
I feel that it supported local conservations in terms of restricting visitor numbers to archaeological sites, local museums. (more)Theodore John Levin
Very enjoyable with some lovely memories (more)Sandra Killick
Uganda wildlife and activity holiday
From
£2,490
excluding flights
The whole trip was marvellous. The white water rafting very memorable, safari drives and river trips great but if I have to choose the most memorable thing it would of course be the gorilla trekking followed closely by the chimpanzee trekking. A wonderful holiday and well looked after by Alex our driver and guide. (more)Christin Monson
The most memorable part of the holiday was the mountain gorrilas - great trek into the mountains spending over an hour with the gorillas. The scenery was stunning which topped off the experience. (more)Kate Cullen
This was the perfect trip: great places, great people, good value for money. We couldn't have wished for anything more. (more)Sabine Mosch
Small group adventure holiday in Uganda
From
£1,600
excluding flights
The entire holiday was memorable. There are countless experiences that I will always remember. Having the opportunity to track and then spend an hour with the mountain gorillas was perhaps the most memorable. (more)Robert Roberto
Spotting the Gorillas in The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was the most memorable part...I travelled alone and as a 50 something year old female felt totally at ease throughout the trip. (more)Kathy Hammond
Ganges tour, Delhi to Calcutta
From
£2,495
excluding flights
Excellent, just what I needed - a fascinating holiday in which everything was taken care of. (more)Kathryn Tomlinson

Most memorable was travelling down the Ganges on the boat and seeing Varanasi. (more)Jane Graham
Festivals and holidays in Ethiopia
From
£3,325

It was all memorable but - not toooo exciting! (more)June Addison
The most memorable parts were the fantastic views from the escarpments and a chance visit at a local school during the TESFA walk, the view over the twin of Ayers Rock from the Ghiralta lodge (more)Monica Filkova
This was a wonderful way to see the beauty of Ethiopia, its warm friendly people and to experience one of it's best known festivals in an idyllic rural community setting. The guide was outstanding in her knowledge of the country and was proactive...A travelling group holiday cannot get better than this. (more)Anne Cooper
Small group holiday to Jordan
From
£799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Petra was definitely the highlight, the walk in down The Siq to the Treasury a real wow factor. Wadi Rum jeep drive a close second. A camel ride in Petra and Wadi Rum is not to be missed, we did both. A well balanced trip, with a number of highlights making it very memorable. Tips? Food included was on the whole very good. Don't miss the meal at Basin Restaurent in Petra. Read all the information provided, the Pre-Departure info was very thorough. The fact that... (more)Rosalind LIEW
Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania holiday
From
£1,229
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Historic cities, interesting and often tragic histories and natural beauty in the landscapes. Lots of insights into the more recent past of the Cold War also. Tips? Be prepared for a fascinating time, and take good walking shoes as you may cover a lot of ground! Local benefits? Local people benefited from our tourism via hotels, restaurants , markets and local guides. We were all environmentally aware. Overall rating? Really fantastic! I learned... (more)Fiona BELL
Uganda wildlife holiday
From
£1,980
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I was able to get up close and personal with the Mountain Gorillas. A very special memory... Tips?

Little things like bringing appropriate footwear, gloves, camera equipment that can bear rough treatment, all of this is good to know before you start the tour. Local benefits? Yes, I stayed in environmentally-friendly/ minimum footprint accommodation,... (more)Andrew Parker
