Annapurna Sanctuary trek in Nepal
It really was the holiday of a lifetime. The 9 day trek round Annapurna Sanctuary has to be the highlight. This was made even more memorable by having the most amazing Sherpa guide and porter. (more)Gina Crowcroft

Archaeology holiday in Greece
Excellent! Our group consisted just of my wife and I so we got personal service from Christos, the Company Operations Director, for the the whole week. The hotel we stayed in was very comfortable, the staff most attentive and the general atmosphere most congenial. (more)Julian Grubb
Excellent. One of my favourite holidays - I'd loved the Peloponnese when I went once as a child and it all lived up to my rose-tinted memories of the place. Two of us in the group had studied Classics which was our reason for going, and we weren't disappointed by the archaeological guides who took us round or the amount of time we had to explore for ourselves. As a company they were great at making sure we were taken care of and a great holiday. (more)Naranee Ruthra-Rajan
This was a wonderful holiday... The guides we had at the sites were excellent and our tour leader just great. The tour was quite simply more than we could have imagined! (more)Alison Marshall

Kayaking holiday in Montenegro, Lake Skadar
Swimming in mountain pools and lakes, from the breathtakingly cold to the sublimely warm.

(more)Jane Barnes
The Kayak trips on Lake Skadar blew me away. The relative solitude combined with the impressive landscapes on both the Montenegrin and Albanian sides of the lake made it one of the most beautiful places I've ever been....I really couldn't have wished for a better holiday. (more)Mandy Reynolds
I rate the holiday very highly indeed. We did a lot in a single week and came back relaxed and happy. We would definitely come again sometime. (more)Mike Jewson
From £530 - £720 excluding flights
Mongolia adventure holiday, off the beaten track
Memorable parts? Travelling across vast plains in the Gobi, with no roads no buildings no artificial light, and stopping to listen to the silence. The immense blue sky. The generosity and kindness of Mongolians. Thunder and lightening echoing around the mountains while we watched from our tents. The unexpected - the tour leader was flexible and a number of times we took unscheduled opportunities to see wildlife, talk to local people, find out about the election that was going on while we... (more)Alison Cathles
From £1550 excluding flights
Andalucia villa near Malaga, Spain
Memorable parts? The peaceful setting, serene surroundings and the warm and gracious hospitality of our hosts, Shane and Bea, are our fondest memories. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left, two weeks later, we rarely thought of our hectic, fast-paced life back home. The villa is a one-of-a-kind gem and we feel very fortunate to have been able to spend two weeks relaxing there and being wowed by the beautiful vistas and sunsets that greeted us every day and every evening. ... (more)Nancy Lipson
From €799 - €1194 per accommodation per week
Belize wildlife conservation holiday
It was a very positive experience being in a country that treasures the natural environment and it is government policy to protect at least 40% of the land for nature. I felt that after 3 weeks I had only scratched the surface of what there is to find out about Belize and definitely plan on returning. (more)Cathy Bisset
Once in a life time experience...meeting all the wild animals was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Kerry Sedman
From £795 excluding flights
Umbria cooking holiday, Italy

It was amazing. One of the best holidays I have ever had (& I am old...so have had a few!) I can honestly not praise this trip enough. It was FABULOUS. (more)Hilary Brett
The overall experience was memorable. The location is great and Marina and Jeancarlo are excellent hosts, they make you feel at home since the begining. When you realize you are relaxed, feeling energetic and sleeping like a baby after an excellent meal with nice wine and company. (more)Sylvia Azem

From €650 - €800 excluding flights
Morocco cultural holiday
Memorable parts? The accommodation was lovely, a beautiful riad with a small pool in Marrakech and a fabulous house in the mountains. It was nice to see such different aspects of morocco - the city, the mountains and the coast. Tips? The walking is a bit harder than the notes suggest- it’s at 2000m and especially in the heat can be quite hard going Local benefits? The house in the mountains provides employment in what would otherwise be a poor village. Overall rating? Very... (more)Eloise Barnes
From £799 - £849 including UK flights

Fantastic, the whole family loved it and I have every intention in returning. There is so much to do in this area that you cannot possibly get it all in in one holiday. (more)Simon Squibb
