The most memorable part was the Camel Fair at Pushkar. To see so many camels and horses assembled in one spot was awesome. (more)Linda Williams

Totally wonderful. Would definitely do another holiday again with this op in Turkey....Organisation behind the scenes exemplary - Julie was always at hand on the end of emails answering our questions promptly. (more)Sue Hodnett
It was my first visit to Turkey and I was really impressed. There is so much beautiful countryside in the Dalyan region. Our guides gave us opportunities to see places and do things which were extraordinary. I would recommend this holiday. The experience I had was wonderful and I will definitely return to Turkey.

It was an amazing experience! Thank to all the staff , the guides and everybody else we had a full, safe contact with the animals in a completely wild environment.

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.

Once in a life time experience...meeting all the wild animals was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Kerry Sedman

Antarctica cruises
Memorable parts? Seeing the interplay between the animals, icebergs, glaciers, sea and sky. Tips? First: TAKE THE TRIP TO ANTARCTICA. It is unforgettable. If Miami is not on a direct route to Buenos Aires, fly there directly.Be sure to bring the right clothing. Being out on the water or a hill is COLD with the wrong clothes. Spend as much time on the bridge of the ship as possible. Go to all of the lectures. Meet new people Local benefits? No people to benefit in Antarctica. However,... (more)Stephen Kohn

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

(more)Kathy House
From £795 excluding flights

Perfect!....The best thing about the holiday was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage.

Small group holiday to Burma
It was all new and exciting for that reason …… very heart warming to see what is flourishing in Myanmar and also fearful that some not such good things come with the advent of more tourism. Our trip to Pagan and Inle Lake are the highlights for me. (more)Jane Edington
The most memorable parts are hard to choose between the wonder of Shwedeagon Pagoda with all it's glittering gold, river journey down the Ayeyarrwady and first sight of Bagan, then cycling around it, relaxing time on Inle Lake, and visiting the botanic gardens in Pyin U-Lwin and the hills of Kalaw.
