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
Mekong adventure holiday, Laos & Cambodia
From
£3,000
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Every day was something different, we walked through jungle; rode elephants; explored caves and sailed in wooden boats, sometimes we used a wooden plank, sometimes we were knee deep in the river! We saw amazing temples and wooden huts that the locals lived in, we saw how people lived and how they dried peppers in their satellite dishes! There were sad parts too, understanding the legacy of the Vietnam war, unexploded bombs everywhere and maimed people. However, the people... (more)Colin Smith
North India cultural tour
From
£710
excluding flights
Book it! A fantastic taster of a small section of Northern India. (more)Sara Kirkham
Challenging, life affirming, and I now have the desire to go on more. (more)Alan Zenthon
Holiday was a great to help me see my own culture with completely new eyes and become more aware of things that I have taken for granted in the past. (more)Judith Brockmann
Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh holiday in Vietnam
From
£632
excluding flights
Excellent, very interesting and exciting. Very well organized.We stayed in local hotels, ate in local restaurants, all the guides were locals and we shopped in markets and local shops. (more)Wally Garrod
Wonderful people to travel with in a truly special country. Healing Bay & Hoi An take some beating. Utterly memorable. I loved it! (more)John McLaughlin

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
Rajasthan tours, India
From
£810
excluding flights
Seeing tigers in Ranthambore National Park- yes two less than twenty feet away. I had no expectations of seeing so to come across one resting beside the track who was then joined by another was amazing. (more)Charmian Hobbs
Don't hesitate to book. Just go! It was amazing. The operator uses local transport, including trains. The hotels were small businesses and not part of large world wide chains. Our group was a mix of ages from 20 year olds to over 60's so it is suitable for all wanting to experience India. (more)Kathryn Heirons
Most memorable - the amazing places we stayed and the wonderful people we met most exciting - being driven through the streets of Delhi, it got the adrenaline pumping anyway! (more)Beki Williams
Cambodia six day tour
From
£750

Excellent! Cambodia is a great place to visit and we were looked after with great care and attention - and had lots of laughs. Our guide was particularly keen to emphasise the use of local expertise and the emphasis on supporting environmental projects. (more)Richard Evans
It was all good - I enjoyed meeting the group, the tour guide and also the different part of the holiday. The killing fields were thought provoking. The temples of Angor amazing in so many different ways. (more)Elizabeth Carmichael
Our group leader was very conscientious and knowledgeable, and was really keen to introduce us to his country. (more)Eleanor Attridge

This trip was packed full of adventure. Every day welcomed a memorable experience. (more)Caroline Hamilton
All the tour has been exciting. (more)Terry Basilico
Peru tailormade holiday
From
£1,530
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Peru is a wonderful destination with so much more to offer than just the iconic Machu Picchu - all thoroughly recommended. Tips? As we did, do the circuit in an anti-clockwise direction, so that you finish up with Macchu Pichu as the jewel in the crown, but don't miss out Arequipa and Colca Canyon. Local benefits? In a relatively poor country where tourism is so important to the economy, every aspect of such a trip benefits the people somehow - even paying... (more)Paul Mors
Burma cultural holiday
From
£1,699
excluding flights
I've fallen in love with this country, didn't want to leave, enjoyed every minute, will defiantly go back one day. (more)Andy Rowlands

I loved it, the Myanmar people are very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back. (more)Mark Meyrick

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

Madrid to Marrakech holiday
From
£1,590
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Morocco, the people, places and food. Tips? Travel light. Take easy care clothing that dries overnight. Take some scarves to refresh your wardrobe. Local benefits? Yes in some instances as locals were given work but at other times they seemed to use the tour group as an easy means of money. Overall rating? Great experience, great food and great like minded people. (more)Jan Tydde

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

Mexico, Belize & Guatemala tour, Mayan encounter
From
£955
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Snorkelling in a coral reef amongst nurse sharks and other amazing sea life was an experience that we will never forget. Tips? In spite of being by far the oldest couple in the group, we had a thoroughly amazing holiday with an excellent tour leader. Try to pack light. Local benefits? Yes, particularly the homestay which provides an alternate income for families trapped in povery. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Helen Hore
Central America tour on a shoestring
From
£1,394
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Roatan, one of the bay Islands of Honduras, was beautiful and the diving was fantastic, and I'll probably never forget the chicken buses! Tips? If you're used to travelling independently then be prepared to find the lack of freedom quite restricting, however it is great not to have to worry about transport and accommodation! Local benefits? I feel that it benefitted local people as wherever possible we patronised local businesses and shops, and as far as is... (more)Victoria Baynes
Eastern Europe cultural tour
From
£892
excluding flights
Seeing a mother bear come to feed and bringing her cub out with her was the perfect end to the Romanian part of the trip. (more)Joyce Ell

Burma cultural tour, Yangon and Mandalay
From
£3,195
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Coming across by chance a house warming and monk blessing in village house on an island near Bagan. We were invited into the upstairs room for the ceremony and then back to join them for the celebratory lunch afterwards. Tips? Look into the wide variety of options for sight seeing and experiences away from the main tourist route. It's all very safe; extremely interesting and the people are very welcoming. Local benefits? Yes I think so. We used local companies... (more)Jacqueline Scott

It was all memorable but - not toooo exciting! (more)June Addison
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.

Hanoi to Da Nang tour in Vietnam
From
£2,000
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...

The most exciting part of the holiday was travelling on the overnight train and the many opportunities we had to meet local people and glimpse a little of what their lives are like. I must also add the bustle and colour of the camel fair and the friendliness of everyone we met. (more)Avril Vallance
Bhopal Singh is undoubtedly the best guide I have had on trips to India. He actually knows the history as well as the culture, habits, etc...Excellent. (more)Nancy Hayward

Memorable parts? The whole tour was great, but I especially enjoyed the picnic while watching the sun set over the roof tops of Florence. Tips? Be prepared to do a lot of city walking. Local benefits? Was only used public transport or our feet, which was great. Overall rating? Value for money. Pace was right with a good balance of lone time and group time. (more)Leigh Danziger
