From
US $1,410

Memorable parts? The amazing location of the ice festival on the huge frozen lake. People dashing around on horse sleighs. I particularly enjoyed being among local people enjoying the ice sculptures, and spending time with a family in Hartgal. Also, the herds of horses, yaks, cattle and sheep and goats roaming freely all over the countryside. The Deer Stones near Muron were so interesting. Tips? Jess is so helpful and responds to any queries about the trips. I felt confident about... (more)Sally-Anne Deards

From

excluding flights
My husband, my 11-year-old son and I, booked our trek with this operator per your instructions July 27th. We stayed in Nepal for the entire month of August. The Full Moon Festival and Shamanism trek was amazing. There is so much I could say about our personal growth and the incredible views that I could write a book. The staff at this operator is wonderful. They were on top of all communications. They answered our emails each day, when we arrived we were met at the airport by Nima Lama, who was...

It was all memorable but - not toooo exciting! (more)June Addison
The most memorable parts were the fantastic views from the escarpments and a chance visit at a local school during the TESFA walk, the view over the twin of Ayers Rock from the Ghiralta lodge (more)Monica Filkova
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.

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
Gerewol festival holiday in Chad
From
£1,999

Memorable parts? Interacting with the Mbororo people was a very rewarding experience. They were friendly and very obliging when it comes to taking photos. The work which had been done before the trip started in order for the group to be accepted was obviously of the highest standard. Tips? Arrive a day earlier to acclimatize as it is a very hot destination and it is better to be well rested before the start of the trip. I arrived a day earlier and left Chad later than most of the...

Overall the most memorable part will be the warm welcome and friendliness of all the people we met. Seeing the tigers in Kaziranga National Park, meeting the retired head hunters in the Konyak villages and lunch in a traditional Ao hut at Moponchuket were also wonderful. (more)Terry Chambers
Northern Pakistan holiday
From
£2,199
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The landscape/topography is breath taking, everywhere, everyday. The mountains and valleys do surpass the phenominal Pakistani hospitality. I had 15 breathtaking days. Tips? Think about what you want before you are there. In this fantastic environment, you can also white water raft, trek, climb, mountaineer...4 wheel drive etc. I was more than content with the cultural touring, some walking/treking, however there is so much more there if you are younger and more active...

Burkina Faso holiday, Festival of the Dancing Masks
From
£1,999

Memorable parts? Visting the Lobi villate of Kampti with all its fetishes in full display. Tips? Drink plenty of fluids and bring plenty of money and storage space for all the souvenirs you are likely to buy. The quality and variety are amazing. Local benefits? Staying at local hotels, buying souvenirs and drinks (at inflated prices) definitely helped the local economy and local people. Overall rating? Different and enjoyable. (more)Dominic Turnbull
