The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert

Memorable parts? There are so many very special moments, but we feel that this holiday enabled us to become involved with local people and their culture that we couldn't have achieved independently.

Great Ocean Walk holiday in Victoria, Australia
From
AU $2,595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers

Memorable parts? I took the 5 day West Coast tour with Aran and it was simply amazing! I don'the usually go on organised tours - I usually prefer to be independent and do it in my own - but since Tasmania has so much to offer I thought it might be a good idea to go with someone who knows the area well and make every most of my short time there! Aran was an absolutely formidable guide from start to finish. Even before the tour started he was flexible with dates and sent me all the information... (more)Alexandra Grellet

Mercantour walking holiday in France
From
€545
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A truly special experience in a little corner of the Mercantour where time seems to have stood still. We went with the flow of life at the pace of an ambling donkey. Every detail of the trip was well thought out, and the route guidance booklet (which we carried with us all the time) was spot on.
