Family cycling holiday in Kenya & Tanzania
Wonderful guides, incredible access to the remotest regions and real people... Wonderful - genuinely the holiday of a lifetime and a never to be forgotten special experience. (more)Dan Cobley
Every day brought new experiences. The animals just kept coming out on cue! Brilliant - I don’t know how we will top it. (more)Monica Szolin-Jones
Most memorable were waking to the sound of a lion killing a wildebeast behind our tent in Amboseli National Park campsite. Singing and dancing with 500 children from a local primary school in Tanzania. (more)Gaenor Morris
From NZ $3690 - NZ $4490 excluding flights
Amalfi coast easy walking holiday, Italy
Memorable parts? It is difficult to identify just one part as the whole holiday was wonderful. I think the views from the last two walks were spectacular - Valle delle Ferriere and Sentiero degli Dei. Tips? Be prepared for hundreds of steps but well worth the climb up and down as every view is stunning. Local benefits? Definitely, in the attention to using local restaurants, shops and public transport. Overall rating? It was amazing. June and Aubrey are welcoming,... (more)Hannah Wilson
From £1155 - £1181 excluding flights
Catalonia family mountain biking & activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? The atmosphere. The amazing biking. The friendliness of the Spaniards and our hosts. The excellent food. Tips? Make sure you research all there is to do so that you can take advantage of exactly what you like best. The region, in close proximity to Mas Pelegri, is absolutely full of incredible things to do, especially sporting activities. We were full to the brim AND we'd have liked to do more research even before going. Local benefits? Yes. By... (more)Jeneva Patterson
From €690 excluding flights
Yoga retreats in Andalucia, Spain
Go for it! The employees were locals and our cook was an organic farmer. Food waste was recycled back to feed the chickens on the farm :) Eco-friendly products were used. Wonderful! A revitalising experience. (more)Elizabeth Reuben
Wonderful - I cannot recommend this holiday highly enough: such a patient and encouraging yoga teacher and the food was delicious. I feel I benefitted physically, emotionally and spiritually. I came home relaxed and healthy and I still keep in regular contact with my new international friends. (more)Sheila Scott
The retreat was exactly and absolutely everything that everyone has written about it and more! (more)Maggie Lamb
From €649 - €1149 excluding flights
Umbria cooking holiday, Italy
The cookery course was fun and we made tasty but not too fiddly food, so what you learn you can put to use when you return home. (more)nicola cosgrove
They were the perfect hosts! They always catered for our every need and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was an enjoyable one. We would not hesitate to book this holiday again! (more)Joanne Anagnostu
The location is stunning, Marina and Gianluca make you feel welcome, and they work exceedingly hard to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. We came to learn cookery, but Marina ensures you know about so much more. I can't wait to try some of the recipes we have been taught. (more)Joanne Wilkins
From €1100 - €1200 excluding flights
Altiplano de Granada activity holiday, Spain
We enjoyed the treks and had some good time to relax. (more)Hanh Nguyen
It couldn't have been better. A wonderful, wonderful family holiday (children 8 & 9). (more)Lyndsay Turley
We had a brilliant holiday. The food and hospitality were excellent and our hosts were intimately familiar with the language, locality, food, history and culture. The hotel is as off the beaten track as one could imagine and is in a tranquil and scenic setting. (more)David Graham
From €207 - €270 excluding flights
Family scuba diving holidays in the Red Sea
10/10 - you must GO!! The best parts was becoming a scuba diver and my son becoming Open Water PADI certified (more)julie griffiths
Most memorable was getting the children snorkelling and seeing their excitement at seeing all the pretty fish! (more)Nicky Smith
Completely relaxing. Met some lovely people. My sons completed their open water and advanced diving courses, and enjoyed themselves without the aid of modern technology. (more)Mary Souster
From £490 excluding flights
Family holiday in Thailand
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
From £1200 - £1900 including UK flights
Family activity holiday in Turkey
Fantastic. A wonderful life-affirming experience, thoroughly enjoyed by our whole family (rare, given wide-ranging abilities). I would highly recommend this company and holiday. (more)Lisa Williams
Excellent! Probably the best family holiday we have had. Try it for your self! (more)Angelique Crooks
Excellent...the guides could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We had a wonderful time. (more)David Scanlon
From £475 - £510 excluding flights
Delhi to Goa overland tour
Memorable parts? Seeing was believing when it came to the Taj Mahal, not many places live up to be better than you anticipate as this place did. My wife and I have done some travelling, but this has to be the most impressive building we have ever witnessed. The Taj Mahal was almost worth the tour fee alone. Tips? Do not be put off by such a cheap price for the package, if we had paid treble we still would have been getting value for money! Don't be put off by such high attention from... (more)Jonathan Kenyon
From £729 excluding flights
Liveaboard diving and sailing holiday in Greece
I had a really lovely time. (more)Melandee Brown
Excellent...For me it was the opportunity to see some amazing places, both on land and underwater. The night dive on Polygaios with the bioluminescent plankton was mind-blowing, Avatar style! (more)Mathias Bredvei
It was wonderful to visit islands that we would not normally visit, we particularly enjoyed that some of them were off the beaten track. (more)andrea jackson
From €790 - €920 excluding flights
Sri Lanka tour & beach holiday
There were many memorable moments - we loved the incredible bird life especially seeing them close-up in the bird sanctuary. (more)Gabi Tubbs
Leopards in Yala were the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Ann Griffiths
We had a great time, we mixed cultural interest with wildlife experience and finished up with a beach flop...The jeep safari to see the elephants in the wild was the most exciting part of the holiday. (more)Elayne Farmer
From £1995 including UK flights
Sri Lanka holidays, tailor made
First and foremost, it has to be said that Sri Lanka did not disappoint us in any way! We were always greeted with warmth waves and smiles! It has to be one of the friendliest countries I've visited and it was for the most part very clean. (more)Lori Keating
The holiday overall was amazing, there were so many memorable experiences it is difficult to name only one thing. If we had to choose it would have to be turtle watching on Rekawa beach. (more)Jude Lambert
Great!...Sri Lankean nature and food were just amazing. The chefs are real professionals! (more)Heli Aru
From £1755 including UK flights
Photography holiday in Andalucia, Spain
The locations for the photo shoots were excellent - especially Comares and the lake. Good company enjoyed over the varied evening meals. (more)ROB INNIS
Great value for money - informative and friendly tuition, excellent accomodation and hospitality. (more)Louise Goddard
The week was very enjoyable - good photography tips, great locations in Spanish villages and coasts, and with 'staff' that seemed more like old friends than small business operators. And it was excellent value for money. (more)Murray Rudd
From £599 - £699 excluding flights
Northern Lights, glaciers and ice photography holiday Iceland
It was fantastic. The tour guides were very responsive to local conditions and flexible to the interests of the group. They were very well organized and knew which sites would be good at different times of day for photography. The group had people at different levels of photography experience, but the common interest brought people together. (more)Christopher Gawronski
Excellent. Inspiring. Exhausting. I would do it all again tomorrow. (more)Tania Skye
Totally memorable, for all the best reasons!...We would unhesitatingly recommend this Holiday. (more)Suzanne de Pelsenaire
From £1950 - £2200 excluding flights
Italian Alps inn accommodation in Piedmont, Italy
Gosh, difficult to say which part out of so many! I am reviewing the holiday five months later and still remember everything about our stay here. The delicious food and warm hospitality from the hosts, the beautiful scenery and the long walks will stay with me forever, I think. (more)Bill Reid
The kindness of our hosts, the nice balanced way they shared and included us in their individual enthusiasm and warmth, the pertinent information about local and Piemonte region, without coming too close were most memorable. Excellent holiday. (more)Anna Welsing
Whilst we have many very happy memories of our recent 5 weeks in Europe all involved voted that the week was 'the' most memorable. This was primarily a result of the passion that both Marla and Fabrizio bring to the running of the accommodation and to ensuring the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. Of course this professionalism is ably supported by the fantastic scenery and interesting history of the area. (more)Neal Dalgliesh
From €60 per couple per night
Algarve holiday accommodation
Great place, great people!... also perfect place to be with kids! (more)Monika Wolkers
We had a lovely time!...The accommodation is faultless and very beautiful and the hosts are welcoming and friendly. (more)Tracey Smith

From €40 - €190 per accommodation per night
Sea kayaking holiday in Croatia
Perfect...The whole holiday was memorable. The kyaking guides were fantastic, accommodation good, food great and I never felt 'herded' around - it was really relaxing and good fun. (more)Pauline Heslop
Lovely week. The group was great with a real mix of ages and experiences. The pace of the week was just right with some pretty challenging paddles some days and really relaxing ones on others. The attitude was laid back with loose plans flexible to suit the needs of the group. (more)jane chaplin
Great fun....the most exciting parts was staying on Sipan and doing a 22k kayak into a 25 km per hour headwind (more)jane brook
From €715 - €750 excluding flights
Self guided walking holiday in France
Really ,really good, relaxing and refreshing. You will be very well looked after and feel genuinely welcome. (more)Jane Haywood
This was an excellent holiday. Our hosts were wonderful, the other guests (all British) were delightful, and the hikes, food, and wine were exceptional. (more)Katherine Layton
We particularly enjoyed the convivial company at meal times and our hosts taking the time to share meals and local insight with us. Carol's cooking combined the best of local produce and traditional French cookery. (more)Elizabeth Anderson
From £663 - £735 excluding flights
Pisa to Lucca walking holiday in Italy
Memorable parts? Experiencing rural Tuscany, in particular Buti and Calci. Tips? Some parts of the walk are quite steep, be prepared for some scrambling! Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Highly enjoyable. (more)Carol Quinn
From €485 - €715 excluding flights
Carmarthenshire self catering cottage in Wales
We had a great time - relaxing, some beautiful experiences (beaches, hills, islands and all the above animals). We were in bed every night by 9.30pm - tired but blissfully comfortable after a day spent exploring. (more)Jayne Obeng
Perfect!....The best thing about the holiday was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a holiday should be. (more)Kirstin Robertson
From £275 - £450 per cottage per week (sleeps 4)
Catalonia self guided walking holidays
I loved the walk along the rocky coast from secluded beach to secluded beach. Seeing nesting storks in the Aiguamolls national park was a highlight too! (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
It was the best holiday we have taken in many years. Cadacaue was the loveliest town I have ever seen and the hotel on the beach with the balcony views was equally exquisite. (more)Karen Balter
There were so many best bits it is hard to choose just one!! Perhaps one dramatic landscape after another, or was it the amazing food, or the super friendly people, or the lovely accommodations? (more)Debra Efroymson
From £378 - £674 excluding flights
Laos small group holiday
Memorable parts? The boat trip down the Mekong. So relaxing. Tips? Keep luggage to a minimum. Laundry facilities are widely available and you'll have more room in your case for purchases. Local benefits? Yes. Local village people, prosthetics provision and literacy help having a direct effect on Laos citizens. Overall rating? Very interesting and well paced. (more)Chris Williams
From £995 - £1255 including domestic flights only
Wildlife holiday in Sri Lanka, private departure
Memorable parts? Being at Mihintale on a Poya day was a great experience, seeing a historic site still attended and used as part of Sri Lankan culture, vibrant and busy with people celebrating family and practicing their faith. The walk at dawn over Horton Plains to the beautiful World's End. And you can't beat the Elephants. Tips? Do your research and discuss what you want out of your holiday with John. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. Local benefits? I think pretty... (more)Cara Foord
From £2095 including UK flights
Catalonia family activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? Staying in a welcoming and comfortable hotel in a beautiful part of Spain, with delightful hosts, and masses of available activities. Tips? Stay at here, it's great. Local benefits? Yes, all of the above. We booked several activities with local companies and ate in local restaurants. We were able to travel extensively by bike rather than car. Overall rating? Excellent. We have all returned fit, healthy and happy. (more)Mary Anne Roffs
From €690 excluding flights
Morocco walking holiday with nomads
Memorable parts? The people in the group, including the guide and nomad family that we hiked with. Such good spirits. Tips? Bring a towel, wet wipes, books. There is time to savor the afternoons. Local benefits? Yes, I felt that our visit did help the nomad family and mule handlers. We learned about each theirs cultures and they sure benefited by having some income to supplement their goat herding. Overall rating? It was a wonderful mix of exotic city pleasures,... (more)Kathy House
From £795 excluding flights
Mexico, Belize and Guatemala holiday
Memorable parts? The morning spent at Tikal in Guatemala was excellent. This activity is definitely best done in the early morning light as it gets very warm and less pleasant to walk in the jungle after 10am. Tips? This is quite a short tour for the distance covered. I would suggest looking at tours staying at least 2 nights in most places in order to really get a sense of the country and culture Local benefits? Somewhat. The use of local transport in some instances certainly... (more)Diana Urbina
From £783 - £869 excluding flights
Luxury fitness holidays in Spain
Memorable parts? Being able to relax! I had no idea what to expect and met up with a group of 30 - 55 year olds in need of time to relax and unwind. 14 burned out ladies! Gentle yoga, cardio circuits, walks, good food etc contributed to re-energise us. Good massages. Tips? To benefit fully you need to be moderately fit. Local benefits? Not really unless you count local expats as locals ... Overall rating? Good - wish I hadn't been in need to cut myself off to be able... (more)Susan Barnacott
From £1148 - £1298 excluding flights
Lake Como family walking holiday, Italy
This was a very well organised holiday, all of its aspects were effective and co-ordinated. In fact a thoroughly enjoyable week. (more)Nicholas Yates

Biking holiday in Kenya & Tanzania
I would go again without hesitation. A perfectly organized tour with enough space for individual changes. Well done! (more)Roman Holderbach
The most memorable part of our holiday was the time spent in a very remote area of Tanzania with the Masai. We were privileged to visit their homes and witness their day to day living. An amazing experience! (more)Susan Ducollet-Holliday
Brilliant! I have done supported tours in USA, Cuba, Brazil and Europe and this is the gold standard in terms of support, food, attention to detail, professionalism, friendliness etc. etc. I cannot recommend this company too highly. Go have fun! (more)Jane Thurnell-Read
