Mongolia adventure holiday
From
US $2,728
excluding flights
Amazing. Trip of a life time.....The amazing landscapes were very memorable as were the Mongolian people and their culture. The wild camp sites were a huge highlight of the trip. (more)Paula Ridge
It was fantastic, with excellent local interaction with the families who owned the Ger Camps, fab views and an idea of the vastness of the country/ steppes. (more)Kathleen Culliton
The landscapes, the animals, the people, the small group we were travelling with: it all was just right and made for a mind-blowing holiday. (more)Sophie van het Erve
Jordan holiday, a week in Jordan
From
£1,299
including UK flights
The most memorable moment was Petra (of course) and the camel ride at Wadi Rum (it is an optional but well worth it!). Our local tour leader was excellent (knowledge of history and kept us entertained during our bus journeys), the group blended well (the best so far), trips well organised and plenty of shopping opportunities. (more)Hely Collie
There was so many memorable moments. Trying to stand up in the Dead Sea it is nearly impossible for your feet to find the bottom so you end up bobbing like a cork! Walking down the canyon to Petra but also going up on the long way to the place of sacrifice. The amphitheatre in Amman. The call to prayer echoing across the city from the mosques is a wonderful musical recitation. (more)Geoffrey Leigh
The most memorable moment was Petra. The wonder of the world. (more)Anil Kashyap
Peru tailormade holiday
From
£1,530
excluding flights
The most memorable was te hospitality of the hotel staff and guides. The Amazon jungle trips. And Heather's constant monitoring even over the Christmas week end…. (more)Natraj Balasubramanian

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
Sri Lanka small group holiday
From
£2,325
including UK flights
I really adored meeting and spending time with the kids at the plantation nursery school and with the older fishermen's children at Dutch Bay. Glorious, dignified children. It was a wonderful holiday with a group that worked very well together and were in fact quite resilient and funny. I really felt there was a good mix of Sri Lankan culture, crafts , food, people and nature on this trip. (more)Mary Puckett
Excellent. (more)Tim Harber
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
Sicily history tour, Italy
From
£1,249

Very much exceeded our expectations. Good value for money. (more)Liz Adams
Excellent. Learn a bit of Italian, especially for food items - makes it just that bit easier and more enjoyable! (Makes the locals happy too). (more)Meiling Aw
Albania holidays, small group tour
From
£919
including UK flights
We loved Albania so it is hard to think of one memorable part but the visits to the Blue eye, Gjirokaster, Butrint & Berat stand out. (more)Tony Barker
A brilliant experience. Fun, educational and eye-opening. (more)Kay Emblen-Perry
I feel that it supported local conservations in terms of restricting visitor numbers to archaeological sites, local museums. (more)Theodore John Levin
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
Japan culture tour, Shoguns & Samurai
From

Experiencing such a different culture and all things Japanese was the best. Excellent. Fumiko was a very helpful, informative and patient guide. We saw amazing temples, landscape etc. (more)Janet Barwell
The whole thing was tremendous - felt we got a real insight into Japan today and in the past....One of the best holidays we have been on - very well planned to give a varied taste of the Japanese culture. (more)Anne Cooper
The most memorable part of the holiday was getting a bit of an insight into the people and culture of everyday Japan by travelling on local trains and buses and staying in local inns in rural areas rather than faceless hotels. (more)Nicola Lindsey

Cooking and cultural holiday in the Spanish Pyrenees
From

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
