Fabulous, never to be forgotten...the excitement of 'getting' the Northern Lights was really great. (more)Doreen Kelly
I think everyone who went on this trip would return in the future given the chance. I will certainly be back next year. Overall a great holiday and learning experience. (more)Malcolm Park

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
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
From US $3995 - US $35000 excluding flights
South East China photography holiday
Memorable parts? Oktay gave me a wonderful introduction to China from all his (and his assistant Sandy's) experience. He knew just the right places to go for photography and the right people to meet. Oktay is a great professional and I had an excellent and instructive time with him. Tips? If possible go to both Guilin and Shanghai with Oktay - the contrast is extraordinary. Local benefits? Yes - we used local resources; we went to out of the way places, photographing them,... (more)John Stork
From €1950 - €2100 excluding flights

This holiday was great and I was still smiling weeks after I got back home. To date it has been the best holiday I have ever been on. I came home really relaxed and incredibly happy.

Absolutely brilliant....We thought our tour was excellent - a comprehensive itinerary and good value. It was really packed with activities so we did enjoy a beach break at the end. (more)Karin Barrett
Outstanding! We will return to Cuba! (more)Sonja Stromdahl
From £710 excluding flights
Umbria cooking holiday, Italy
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

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

The best parts were the location, kindness of hosts, accomodation, amazing stars at night (more)Lisa Hardie
The most memorable aspect was the hotel itself and the great service provided by Ilaria and Des.

Burma is such a fabulous country to visit - our itinerary included one or more highlights every day. The crowning glory of our tour was our guide Po. He looked after our group of six as if we were family. (more)Stephanie Diggon
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. (more)Janet Sutherland

Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari
Excellent...The whole experience was so full of adventure and different sights and experiences from beginning to end. (more)Mandy Bryan
Chitwan NP... an encounter with a rhino while on a walk. Pretty amazing watching one of these animals come out of the bush, and your there with your guide and helper, each with nothing more than sticks, looking at these large endangered species... won't forget that! (more)David Whetham
It was wonderful to walk through out the lovely villages meeting people and also the beauty of the countryside and experiencing breath taking views of the mountains.

It was incredible, amazing, breathtaking. Simply spectacular. Totally worth it, Nepal is a paradise, and its people are a big part of the good feeling you get there. (more)Laura Murillo
My guide Krishna and porter Ali were helpful throughout with Ali never saying a negative word about my kit bag he was carrying and Krishna being especially on the early morning ascent to Thorong La Pass. He sensibly walked 40/50 paces then stopped for 30 seconds and then on again etc. At that altitude the pace was just right and we made it to the top in wonderful snowy conditions with clear blue skies at 8.30 am – a great memory to have. (more)Len Davison
Nepal is a stunning country but it is being undermined by pollution and corruption. There seems to be an attitude that its ok to overcharge tourists because they are seen as rich by comparison. (more)Jane Crashley
