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
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
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
£2,275
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Everything. The mixture of styles and settings was 100% amazing. Each one fulfilling a different part of the Sri Lanka experience. Each one had novelty; each one was for me just right. I could not and did not expect anything better on this style and type of tour. Tips? Don't worry. Just relax and go with the flow. Everyone without exception that we met and who assisted us was magnificent. Local benefits? Yes. We also benefited from more local insight than... (more)Tim Harber
Burma cultural tour, Yangon and Mandalay
From
£3,395
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

From

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

The most memorable part was the time with elephants!....Amazing! (more)Lisa Hele
Uzbekistan holiday, silk road and desert
From
£1,895
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Experiencing a rare storm in the desert on the journey to the shores of the Aral Sea. The tracks soon turned into raging streams, there was thunder and lightning and even hail. We had been prepared for dust but the 4X4 drivers quickly adapted to floods and mud so we had an exciting off road experience. Tips? The wild camping and spending a night in a yurt contrast well with sightseeing in the fabulous cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand. Be adaptable and enjoy... (more)Diana Rybinski

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
