From
£1,760
including UK flights
Excellent and tour guide (Abdullah) was really excellent (more)Karen Shaw
Oman is a "must see" country and I would thoroughly recommend everyone to go. Lovely, wonderful, gentle people, so proud of their heritage and a most beautiful country. (more)Vivien Gainsborough Foot
The whole trip was fabulous, we loved every part of the itinerary. The best bits were swimming outdoors in the Wadi Bani Khalid and in the Bimmah sinkhole, and also seeing turtles on the beach at night (we were lucky). (more)Anisha Palan
Oman small group tour
From
£1,799
excluding flights
The most memorable part of the holiday was crossing the mountains and the desert, and having a clear night sky in the desert. Omani are really hospitable. (more)Yann Bacon
It was wonderful. The people were warm and gracious. Our guide did a great job and was a superb quick driver. (more)Dennis Shulha
Morocco holiday, Marrakech to the Sahara
From
£615
excluding flights
Climbing the sand dunes at Ch'Gagga to watch the sunset, and amazing view of the stars at night. Also, the warmth and hospitality of all the hosts at the camps and our great driver Hasan. Wonderful trip in a beautiful place, a small adventure I'll always remember. (more)Beth Walker
Amazing! Marrakech was fascinating and we loved the nightlife in Djemaa el-Fna square. We had great guides at every stage of the holiday and learned a lot about the Moroccan culture. All the organisation from the holiday provider went very smoothly and I would use them again. (more)Theresa Hall
Our main driver was very knowledgeable about the area as is a qualified guide and he was very attentive to our needs. He made our long road trip a pleasure. (more)Anna Gonzales
Egypt desert & culture tour
From
£985
excluding flights
The most memorable parts of the holiday were Camel ride round the Pyramids (you do have to barter hard), Abel Simbel and best of all Valley of the Kings. (more)Jo Carter
The whole holiday has been a dream of mine for 25 years and it more than lived up to expectations. The pyramids, temples and tombs were amazing. The Nile cruise was 10 times better than we expected - lovely staff and surroundings, especially the surprise animals made out of towels on our beds each night! (more)Janice Gould
The whole Egypt holiday was memorable and each part was different and equally exciting. Spent a few days in Cairo seeing the sights - the Pyramids are phenomenal. (more)Irene Ennenga
Morocco cultural tour
From
£735
excluding flights
We were fortunate to have had such a great experience...Climbing up to the Kasbah at Ait Benhaddoo and watching the sunset over the Atlas Mountains followed by the moon rising from the opposite horizon (more)Philip Leavey
Very enjoyable...Chefchaouen, meeting nomads and the Atlas Mountains scenery (more)Elizabeth Wingate
A huge variety of sights, places, experiences and people - we gained an insight into the size, diversity and history of Morocco. We were made welcome at each visit, at each accommodation and by all the local guides. (more)Graham Jackson

We saw some fascinating historic sites, and some wonderful scenery. (more)Harriet Truscott
The most memorable part of this holiday was going off the beaten track. The amazing tour guide Jerry who is a credit to the tour operator (more)sharon kalsy
The most memorable part of the holiday was the camel ride into & out of the desert - not knowing whether I would survive the lurches down over the top of the dunes! (more)Kathleen Culliton
Morocco small group holiday, beach & gorges
From
£859
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Blue and white Chefchaouen, berber villages, camel trek, tanneries in Fes, Volubilis and a lot of couscous and tajines. Tips? It is a lot of travelling. So if you are looking for a very relaxing or private holiday, this is not the one. But if you are looking for a great trip with a lot to see and experience, learn and eat, go for it. Local benefits? Yes. We used local hotels, local guides and local restaurants. But we could do more in cleaning Morocco from... (more)Kristina Mänd
Sudan holiday
From
£2,199
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The visit to Meroe. Mind blowing! The pyramids in the daytime WOW, but even better at sundown. A very big shame that there were no G&T`s to go with the atmospheric feeling of history. When you stay in tent city, it`s fantastic with the night sky and no light pollution. Eating and sleeping, with the stars, all around you, then you have arrived in paradise.If you are lucky to go on this trip and have Kahlid as your guide, then you are in for a treat.If you think the desert... (more)Geoffrey Hermsen
Marrakech & the Sahara holiday in Morocco
From
£749
including UK flights
The best bit was climbing a sand dune after a camel trek to our camp for the night...Excellent. No criticisms whatsoever. (more)Roddy MacLeod
Great trip for anyone looking for a variety of experiences - desert, mountains, city - packed into a week. The camel trip was a memorable experience, as was glamping in the desert and star-gazing. (more)Kate Charles
Walking in the Atlas in general was terrific with the beautiful scenery. Sleeping outside under the stars was also amazing... Second to none! (more)Jennifer Baker Dallison
Rajasthan desert adventure
From
£1,599
including UK flights
Memorable parts? All visits to Rajastani palaces, forts and havelis were a fantastic experience, especially since the city guides were really good and very excited to tell us all about it. The Taj Mahal is certainly a highlight, but my top experience was visiting the living and breathing city within the walls of Jaisalmer fort. Other highlights for me included the miniature painting school in Udaipur, the carpet and block printing workshop in Jaipur, the observatory in Jaipur and the makrana... (more)Monica Filkova
Gobi Desert expedition
From
US $2,195
excluding flights
Memorable parts? That's a hard decision to make. The Gobi desert in Mongolia awesome. I took around 4000 pictures and movies that we'll put on our website along with a travel log. We really liked the sand dunes and camels. I got some great pictures of horses, camels, people and the environment. It was awesome staying in Ger camps. Our driver, Ot, was awsome. Tips? Be flexible. Know that your guide and driver are very experienced. It's typical for a car to break down but the driver's... (more)Charlotte Lundemo
Sudan holiday, Desert Explorer
From
£2,999
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of my journey in Sudan was the Sudanese people, I have never experienced just a warm welcome in my life, it will for ever stay with me. Tips? Just book it, don't ponder about it and worry about safety, I never felt as safe and for me it was a trip of a lifetime. Local benefits? The trip was linked with a local tour operator, who were directly involved or had links with local projects just as schools and education. Also they employed... (more)Cathal Murphy
Petra and Wadi Rum trekking holiday
From
£1,299
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Walking in the desert and the wide open space and peace and quiet. Somehow the actual rhythm of the walking was almost mesmeric and I felt I could walk for hours Tips? Big hat, suntan lotion, water 'platypus' to go in your day pack, good camera and a willingness to get on with anything that was put in front of you. Local benefits? Not sure - although local people involved in 'jeeping' our stuff around. We certainly left desert as deserted as when we arrived.... (more)Jill Marquis
Budget camel safari in Morocco
From
£255
excluding flights
It was a good holiday with an insight into a different world which was the highlight of it for us (more)Gabriella Guglielminotti
My daughter's sheer delight in "her" camel (called Yellow) & my son's face as we set off on the camels on the 1st day, his 13th birthday. My children playing blind mans bluff with the younger 3 Fayous, watching them all wrestling in a heap on the floor. (more)Kirk Hutton
While we only stayed with the family properly for one night, they were equally warm, inviting, embracing and served up a fantastic couscous...My husband and I truly enjoyed the silence and peacefulness of the 5-day journey. I like to sum it up by likening it to a 5-day interior camping trip, with a camel instead of a canoe. We were in Morocco for a whole month, and this was definitely our favourite part. It is definitely not for everyone, but it was perfect for us! (more)Erin Kelly
Namibia safari
From
£2,369
including UK flights
The most memorable part was seeing a leopard "in the wild" for the first time. I have been trying for over 35 years! (more)Linda Adams
The most memorable part of the holiday was spotting the leopard. We would have missed it & driven on, but the leaders saw it & we went back. We had to be patient because the leopard hid in a culvert, but eventually came out. (more)Alan Reimer
Adventure holiday in Rajasthan
From
£1,450
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I will never forget bicycling down some of the quite back country lanes of Rajasthan - children running across field of yellow mustard flowers to greet you as you bicycle past - pausing in a small village to meet the people weaving a beautiful rug on the huge loom - spotting a beautiful Kingfisher perched in a tree as you pause to admire. Tips? Enquire as to what you might bring along to benefit a local school or such that you might be visiting along the way! Local... (more)Mike Perry
Tailor made holidays to Jordan
From
£1,975
including UK flights
Magical. Loved every minute. 4 days that felt like 2 weeks they were so full of sights and sounds and wonderful people. A brilliant short break. (more)ali king
Very good...Feynan Lodge was the best part - would like to have spent longer there. (more)Alan Graham
I will always remember Petra. The history is incredible and our guide was very informative...Excellent! (more)Carol Seaforth
Adelaide to Alice Springs tour, Australia
From
AU $2,450
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The wonderful walks -- canyons, gorges, other natural features -- that revealed to us the natural riches of the Outback, from birds and other creatures to the land itself. Also... the bush knowledge and sensitivity of our leader, Steve. He added immeasurably to our appreciation, and therefore our pleasure. Tips? Probably more important for Europeans than Canadians or Americans (who live in big-scale countries): realize emotionally, not just intellectually, that once... (more)Penny Williams
Uzbekistan holiday, silk road and desert
From
£1,995
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
Egypt holiday, tailor made
From
£2,270
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the ancient Egyptian sites that are so old and so famous, to actually see them in real life. And to be able to see so much in a few days without feeling rushed! Tips? It is worth if possible to book a private guide, as the only (somewhat) negative comment is that with a big group (off the cruise) the guided tours are not as interesting than when it is exactly according to your timetable and interests. Local benefits? Yes, in principle, but given the... (more)Katrin Nyman-Metcalf
Jordan holiday, highlights & hidden gems
From
£2,450
including UK flights
The most memorable part was walking down Wadi in Dana National Park to Feynan...It was wonderful. So beautiful and so much to do and see and the Jordanians were very kind and helpful. (more)Stephen Pick
Jerash was incredible as was the site of the Baptism of Christ. The countryside of Jordan an all its aspects. (more)Geoffrey Gurling
Oman holiday, Forts and Deserts of Oman
From
£2,250
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The desert, mountains and hospitality in Oman. Tips? Distances are long in Muscat so make sure you book a hotel with a convenient location. We made a tailor-made contract with the operator. However, the tour was subcontracted to a local travel agent - not ideal when problems arise! Often there was a miss-match between given itinerary and actual plan, not that we missed anything but somehow annoying. Book your holiday directly and you are in control! Local benefits? Not... (more)Kirsten Christensen
Holiday in Mongolia
From
£1,799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The solar eclipse. Also visiting a nomadic family one night. Tips? Not really applicable as a one-off trip to see solar eclipse and Mongolia along the way. General tips would be Mongolia is a big country with poor infrastructure. Make sure your trip doesn't involve too much driving or you will spend your whole time on a bus and not out seeing things. Covering 400km in one day, while possible, is not pleasant. Local benefits? Yes and no. It was run by a Mongolian... (more)Sam Grainne
