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
£1,249
including UK flights
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
A great adventure.....Floating in the Dead Sea, snorkelling in the Red Sea, Petra. (more)Annette Starfield
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
Morocco tour, Imperial Cities
From
£729
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Superb trip, Sahara desert, camel rides, Berber music Tips? Local benefits? Overall rating? Superb holiday (more)Yelena Novik
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
Burma highlights tour
From
£2,029
including UK flights
The country is incredible – it’s beautiful, the people are friendly, the history is astounding…. We did and saw so much – I cannot pick my best highlight as it’s impossible to choose just one. I was also very fortunate to have a wonderful group to share the experience with. (more)Lorna Marsh
The most memorable parts were the visit to Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon on the final day - the culmination of a feast of sights and experiences packed into a fairly hectic schedule. (more)Andy Jackson
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
£2,050
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
Central America overland tours
From
£2,057
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Fantastic insight into many different cultures. Stunning and varied scenery in wonderful hot weather from the might of the Panama Canal to the jaw dropping beauty of the rain and cloud forests to the awesome splendour of the region's volcanoes and craters Tips? Do as much research as possible before your trip - I wished I had done more! Try and learn some basic conversational Spanish - I wish I had learnt more! Local benefits? Tourism is an infant business... (more)Douglas Newlands
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
Central America tour on a shoestring
From
£1,479
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
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
Maasai Mara safari camp in Kenya
From
US $70
per person per night
Memorable parts? Arriving in the village - the warmth of the welcome, the pleasure of staying in a manyatta (mud hut). Also the activities are wonderful - walks amongst the zebra, milking cows, firing bows and arrows, lighting fires. Really good fun!! Tips? I went for 4 nights - 2 in the camp and 2 in the village. The camp is great - paraffin lamps, good food and comfy beds. You can get the lie of the land and start to get to know your hosts. But don't miss out on staying in the village... (more)Helena Smith
Ecuador holiday, Darwin's Ecuador
From
£4,295
excluding flights
From the moment we stepped on to the canoe it all became a bit of an adventure. Our excellent local guide Delfin brought the forest to life with his tales of the living in the forest (more)Jane Rawson
The whole holiday was very very good and hugely enjoyable! The time at Bellavista cloud forest reserve was exceptional for me especially as I was able to go back for a few days after the group tour finished and do more walks on my own (saw a sloth even). (more)Alison Pelikan
Festivals and holidays in Ethiopia
From
£3,325

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
Bhutan small group tour
From
£1,299

The scenery is stunning, and hiking with a local guide allows you to be immersed with the local culture, from chatting with the farmers, watching local sports competitions, or sharing a meal. A very authentic experience! (more)Renee Summers
Climbing to the Tiger's Nest is a must do and see. Nothing can prepare you for the sight of the Temple appearing out of the mist/clouds. (more)Roisin McArdle
Wonderful country to visit. The people are so friendly, the air fresh and the scenery stunning. Also the Paro Festival was such a colourful affair and fascinating to observe how important it was to the locals. (more)Pamela Cranston

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
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
