Arctic diving holiday, marine life & wildlife expedition
Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas
From £2190 excluding flights
Learn to scuba dive in the Red Sea
Do not hesitate to book this holiday! The people are fantastic, the place is beautiful and the more relaxed nature of the area due to its more remote location made for a far more relaxing holiday than you would have at other resorts in the region The whole operation was centred around local people and the local economy. We were actively encouraged to reduce our environmental impact and respect the environment which we were lucky enough to see (more)Gareth Jones
Everything was fantastic but the most memorable part was the diving. We went diving every day and saw lots of coral and fish. Staying with this operator was also very relaxing. They looked after us wonderfully, everything we wanted was provided and nothing was too much trouble. (more)Diederik Kohnhorst
I hope to remain fit enough to explore yet more -different/ active holiday experiences from the Responsible Travel /Eco sites area and to widen my knowledge of the World . other peoples and their culture . (more)michael jones

Liveaboard diving and sailing holiday in Greece
We could not rate our holiday any higher. All six of us are eager to return.

(more)Danielle Romme
I had a really lovely time. (more)Melandee Brown

I enjoyed the day in Cairo. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Visiting the Egyptian Museum and the Pyramids with the camel ride was unforgettable. Snorkelling in the diving in the Red Sea is magical!!! (more)Anne Deak

Red Sea diving holidays
Everything the club provided was of the first order, be it the fantastic dive instructors, who never failed to make my holiday fun and engaging; the well-thought out and delightful accommodation; safe and well-maintained equipment; and the friendly, caring and enthusiastic staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place to anyone thinking about a scuba diving holiday. (more)Ben Moss
The diving was fantastic. This is definitely the place to go if you want to dive and snorkle. It’s a great location too, near the main stretch but far enough away to allow you to enjoy your peace and quiet. (more)Amanda Okill
The most memorable parts were my first dive as a qualified open water diver & being able to enjoy watching all the colourful fish and corals. (more)Jenny Tither
From £446 excluding flights
Learn to dive in Sardinia, Italy
One of the most memorable parts of my trip was a snorkelling excursion along the Golfo di Orosei. Along the way, as we sailed past all the stunning beaches and caves, Cinzia gave us plenty of information about the geography and nature along the coast, but all in a very humorous and fun way. Once in the crystal clear water we were lucky enough to see a couple of weird and wonderful creatures. (more)Christine Morton
Brilliant scenery, great underwater wildlife and quiet roads. Cala Garone is absolutely idyllic in October. (more)Ann Windle
The diving was very flexible and went at our pace. I'd go back again - I'm hoping to finish some more advanced diving courses there. (more)Eimear Monaghan
From €410 - €830 excluding flights
Belize marine conservation internship
Memorable parts? 1. Snorkeling with the whale sharks. 2. Good diving instruction to next level of qualification. 3. Chance to do conservation surveys as something more than that which you usually do on a regular dive holiday. 4. chance to dive in Caribbean at dive sites that are not crowded, never were there other dive boats at the sites we dived, thus only 4 to 8 divers at the site from the boat. Tips? 1. To the extent your baggage allowance allows it, take items identified including... (more)Simon Timms
From £2250 excluding flights
Scuba diving and tour in Cuba
The most memorable parts of the holiday were... diving in the Bay of Pigs (wrecks, rays, turtles, amazing coral)... by chance being in Vinales during its local festival with street stalls, funfair, live music and dancing...It really was the holiday of a lifetime. (more)Catherine Shaw
Book it know! Wonderful memories, felt like you were participating in a movie from the fifties. bB living / eating in private houses our holiday benefited local people. (more)Wenche Drevland
Casa Particular owners will certainly benefiting from our 6 weeks visit (one bedroom renting for a day is more than one month salary of a doctor). National Parks visits will help conservation. (more)judge alison
From €1040 - €1720 excluding flights
Diving holiday in Gozo, Malta
Memorable parts? Farmhouse was huge. Diving was incredible. Local food delicious whether you are in or out. Tips? Gozo is very quiet and maybe too quiet for some. We loved it but we had the diving to keep us entertained. Local benefits? Yes to a large degree. We used local shops and restaurants. The dive school was British but it was well run and took care of us and the environment. Overall rating? We had a wonderful time. Everything was fabulous. Only a few small... (more)Jane Carpenter
From £733 including UK flights
Diving & mountain biking in Vietnam
The food - absolutely delicious everywhere we went, even the meal cooked by our guide in a Tay minority homestead where we ate with the family and drank rice wine welcome shots. Phu Quoc Mango Bay resort - peaceful, eco-friendly, lots of options. The scenery - highlights, Mount Fan Xi Pan from Sapa and Halong Bay. (more)Diana Orton
We had a fantastic time and would recommend this operator to anyone travelling to Vietnam. The management of the tour was excellent. We loved Vietnam, from the food to the people to the places. There is much to see and do and we felt that our tour covered many of the beautiful areas in Vietnam. (more)Annalet van Deventer
Surviving the throng of motorbikes in the streets of Hanoi was the most memorable part. (more)Rachel Crossley
From US $2168 excluding flights
Antarctic diving expedition
Interacting with the wildlife in Antarctica was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Robert Pecoraro
All of it was memorable, but if I had to pick it would be my first sight of Antarctica which was at sunrise, wow! And my 30 minute dive with a leopard seal. But it was all amazing. (more)Stacy Valentine
Most memorable was diving around the ice bergs and snorkelling with the leopard seal. Real WOW factor. (more)Judith Bewell
From £4110 excluding flights
Antarctica cruise, with diving & climbing options
GREAT!!!!!!! (more)Krisztina Inczedy
The very first Antarctic landing was a photographer's feast that was totally mindblowing at such an early stage of the trip. (more)Louise Yerbury
The most memorable part of visiting Antarctica has to be (as part of the diving contingent) diving with Leopard Seals on two occasions. (more)Mike McCormack
From US $8725 - US $13000 excluding flights
Lionfish spearing marine conservation in Belize
The best diving holiday I did so far and it will be hard to beat. I learned so much about fish identification and substrates and this makes diving much more enjoyable. (more)Ulrike Kachel
The entire trip was a blast! Multiple dives per day without another diver in sight, unspoiled beauty of the amazing reef, incredible food, etc. etc. Everything about this trip was memorable and exciting! (more)Eric Strobel
From US $1265 - US $4100 excluding flights
Sardinia diving holidays, Italy
There were five of us and my three children are aged 16, 18 and 20 and we all had a great time. The beaches are fabulous, much quieter than we thought they would be, locals were very friendly and proud to be Sardinian. (more)Mark Rhodes
Excellent....The actual scuba diving course was both challenging and a lot of fun - the staff were great - very generous with their time and encouragement and the island of Sardinia provided the perfect backdrop (more)Meta Rotenberg
Really really good...Definitely the diving as recommended by Responsible Travel, I'm hoping to go back next year. (more)Leanne Marshall
From €322 - €630 excluding flights
Sulawesi diving holiday in Indonesia
Memorable parts? Climbing active volcano, Agung Batur, Bali with distance vistas above the clouds. Early morning walk before breakfast along the Champhuan ridge, Ubud Scuba diving in the Wakatobi marine park. The jetty bar with new friends at Wakatobi beach resort at sunset. Tips? Pay the extra and upgrade to the more private/secluded premium select bungalows north (sunset side) of the jetty and at the waters edge - south side windy, less private and set back from the beach. Ubud,... (more)Kevin Green
From US $2510 - US $3460 excluding flights
Yoga & diving holiday, Egypt
It's almost impossible to put into words how restful, life affirming and soul enhancing this yoga diving holiday at the Bedouin Moon hotel has been. The combination of learning deeply restful, energising and challenging breathing yoga techniques with diving over some of the most stunning reefs in the world I will never ever forget. (more)Penelope Granycome
The yoga was wonderful, the diving was awesome and two Bedouin children spontaneously helped me beach clean on my last day. (more)Fiona Tibbitt
This was my first visit to Egypt and the holiday was a great introduction to Dahab and diving in the region. The diving was amazing. I was the only person on the course the week I went in early April so had one-to-one diving sessions... An amazing experience and great chillout. I'll definitely be returning. (more)Tania Charles
From £595 - £685 excluding flights
Thailand marine conservation and diving holiday
Memorable parts? The diving on Sail Rock, probably one of the best dive sites in the Gulf of Thailand Tips? This is a small village with basic amenities so be prepared to take it easy and relax as there is a lot of down time where nothing is happening. If you get bored easily then make sure you have brought things to occupy your time or better still make an effort to get out and about the island. Local benefits? Not really to the extent that I would have liked, sure spending... (more)Stan Batchelor
From £1096 excluding flights
Little Cayman diving holiday, Pirates Point Resort
Memorable parts? Every day of my holiday there was a great moment. Diving was superb, the food excellent and people extremely service orientated and pleasant to talk with. They are very professional and also appreciated your service when booking my holiday. This makes it easier for me as well and I am grateful for it. Tips? Travel with British airways instead of American airlines. It is certainly shorter (distance and time), you don't have the hassle to go through the USA and American... (more)Benjamin Briere
From US $1747 - US $2323 per person per week
