Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Tailor made holiday in Peru
From
£4,145
including UK flights
Memorable parts? EVERYTHING - it was just great! Tips? To inform themselves very early (6 month before booking) to get the most out of it. We therefore had the best holidays ever and people we met on our tour were just jealouse, because we could do all the cool stuff (we had organised the permits for Huayna Picchu, the Trek to Huchuy Qosqo etc.) Local benefits? Yes I do Overall rating? Great! (more)Barbara Buchegger
Kerala luxury holiday
From
£2,160
excluding flights
This was definitely a 4-star holiday!...By far the most memorable part for us was the houseboat cruise on the back waters. Two nights on a barge - we loved the leisurely pace as we moved slowly along the rivers, giving plenty of time for watching birds and also watching life as lived alongside the river. (more)Aldyth Rowe
Excellent...The backwaters trip and the stay at Serenity were the most memorable parts. (more)john still
It was a 100% enjoyable experience. We got really far off the beaten track & to the real Southern India (Kerala & Tamil Nadu). Seeing lots of wild fauna & flora, including elephant three times. (more)John Tams-Gray
Sri Lanka holidays, tailor made
From
£1,945
including UK flights
We had a fantastic time. The system for planning the itinerary at pre booking stage is very satisfactory and you are provided with a lot of information by very knowledgeable people who clearly love the country. (more)Elaine Brown
I'd go back tomorrow ! Loved it. (more)Stan Deboehmler
Great trip, great guide and solid tour company - the holiday provider was top notch and I would not hesitate to use them again. (more)Bill Dinner
Japan holidays, tailor made
From
£4,990
including UK flights
The autumn colours were just amazing in Japan. Its a fascinating culture with so many memorable experiences, just a few spring to mind, walking the Nakesendo highway, staying at the Mitsui Garden hotel in Tokyo, the views are mind blowing from here, Geisha spotting in Kyoto... (more)Katherine Windibank
In all honesty it is very hard to pin point one defining moment. It was all brilliant. (more)Alan Brownlow
It's hard to say just which part was the most memorable because it all was (more)Janet Turnbull
Rajasthan luxury tours
From
£900
excluding flights
Everything was exciting. I loved riding an elephant solo in a cruelty free environment, no seat just a blanket. The boat ride at dawn on the Ganges... A real rollercoaster of emotions, a life changing adventure, I loved it all. (more)Elizabeth Wingfield
Exciting, thought provoking, mind-blowing, all in one! We met so many wonderful, warm people at every stage. The quality of our guides was also first class. (more)Cicely Thorpe

From
£1,760

Excellent and tour guide (Abdullah) was really excellent (more)Karen Shaw
Oman is a "must see" country and I would thoroughly recommend everyone to go. Lovely, wonderful, gentle people, so proud of their heritage and a most beautiful country. (more)Vivien Gainsborough Foot
The whole trip was fabulous, we loved every part of the itinerary. The best bits were swimming outdoors in the Wadi Bani Khalid and in the Bimmah sinkhole, and also seeing turtles on the beach at night (we were lucky). (more)Anisha Palan

Vietnam tailor made holidays
From
£2,980
including UK flights
We enjoyed it all - wonderful food, pleasant, well informed guides, new experiences. Hanoi is a beautiful and really buzzing city; we'd love to go back. Mai Chau valley is beautiful and developing fast; Halong is like visiting another planet - so strange, so awe-inspiring. (more)Patricia Stoat
It was a great holiday, and it is very hard to single out one thing. Our trip to the northeast was one of the best bits (I was honoured to be invited to join the other giggling grannies on the floor of the Tay house - if only I was as limber as they are!). (more)Margery Nzerem
Tailor made holiday in Bali, Off the beaten track
From
£995
excluding flights
The people are so nice, always happy and the island is like nowhere else. (more)michele allix
Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. They put together the perfect package for our honeymoon. We can't thank them enough. (more)Christina Lloyd
Most memorable was sailing down the river in our private boat in kalamantan looking at the orangutans swinging through the jungle and staying on a remote island near komodo snarkling and watching the birds. (more)Amanda Law
Tailor made Rajasthan tour, India
From
£1,750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? History and culture. I enjoyed the amazing hotels we stayed in that were beautiful locations and historical. Tips? Due to distance between locations, ensure there are two nights at every hotel. There is significant time spent driving (in a car) between each location. If flying from Delhi during December / January be aware of fog delaying / cancelling flights. Local benefits? We visited local communities (e.g. Bishnoi, Samode) but not sure how it benefitted... (more)Tracey Warren
Sri Lanka and Maldives holidays
From
£3,590
including UK flights
The most memorable part of our holiday was snorkelling in the Maldives. It was amazing to see sharks, fish and sea turtles on the reef. It was a surreal experience...Overall, I would rate our holiday 10/10. We had a great time in all the countries we visited, the locals were very friendly and hospitable. (more)Tracy Watson
Flying in a seaplane over the Maldives and landing in the lagoon by Filitheyo Island where we spent an amazing week was the most memorable part. (more)Greg Harris
Very happy with our holiday, certainly related to the quality of the different guest houses. (more)Tinnes Sebastien
Sabah & Sarawak holiday in Borneo
From
£2,535
including UK flights
It was an amazing wildlife adventure - I feel very fortunate to have seen freshly hatched baby green turtles and wild orangutans. (more)Claire Onody
There were many memorable moments. Too few to fully list out! One destination was the Gomantong Birdnest Caves. The main cave tests all your senses. Certainly a location for the next Indiana Jones film, not for flip-flop wearing tourists! (more)Jonathan Reed-Lethbridge
Indonesia holidays, tailor made, Orangutans & Komodo dragons
From
£3,785
including UK flights
Fantastic! It was incredible to have everything pre-arranged and all the logistics sorted out for us, so relaxing and just what we needed after a hectic wedding! Most memorable was staying with the Iban tribe and seeing the orangutans in Sarawak, and Borobudur at sunset in Java. (more)Portia Lloyd
Really brilliant - it was our honeymoon and we really had a fabulous time. It was so well organised by the operator which took a lot of the stress out of travelling which was exactly what we needed with such a complicated itinerary. The hotels we stayed in were second to none - really fabulous and we were spoilt rotten! (more)Erin Bunting
Seeing the orang-utans at Tanjung Puting National Park was the highlight, followed closely by the couple of days spent on board the boat to Komodo Island. The orang-utans were a joy to watch and we felt privileged to see these animals in their natural habitat. (more)Kathryn White
South India holiday
From
£1,851
excluding flights
The holiday was fantastic. There isn't anything we could fault, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the company to anyone. The organisation, attentiveness and flexibility to suit our preferences was second to none. (more)Peter Stimpson
Kerala was incredible from start to finish. As we came to each destination the only word that fit was ' paradise' (more)Samantha Smith
A holiday to suit a wide age range. Safe, friendly and we were able to learn so much about the culture of Kerala. One of the best holidays. 10/10 (more)Joanna Allman
Peru holiday, Cusco to Lake Titicaca
From
£1,095
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The trip up to Machu Puchi, our guide Wilfredo was very knowledgeable and stopped to let us drink in the pure awesomeness of it all and when we reached the top the feeling was surreal and brought not just a lump to my throat but a tear to my ear. Tips? Take plenty of insect repellent as the mosquitos are in their millions Local benefits? Peru's main economy is from mining but all our guides stressed how important tourism is to their country Overall rating? My... (more)John Hawkins

From
£2,370
including UK flights
Amazing, interesting (more)Hefin Salisbury
Every moment was a memorable moment...Jerash in Jordan was a surprise...Petra Kitchen was a lot of fun ...Dinner at Fauzi Azar Inn, and singing and dancing at Bedouin Camp was great too! (more)Helga Trim
9/10...Jordan - particularly Petra which lived up to, and surpassed its reputation (more)Jean Ross
Colombia holiday, tailor made
From
Ä1,920
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Loved the Colombian people; loved Bogota; Medellin & Cartagena. Tips? Be aware in advance of the length of time it takes to get served in restaurants and the blandness of the food. Also we found the guides to be uninspiring. Colombia needs to invest in these areas in order to drive tourism in a positive was. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? It was good and very enjoyable overall - we saw a huge amount of the country and had many different experiences. (more)Helen Cosgrove
Jordan holiday, tailor made
From
£2,000
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The Feynan lodge is a terrific place to stay, and the walk down from Dana is a very enjoyable one, through surprisingly varied scenery. Tips? Jordan is a very friendly, welcoming country, with plenty to see and do. It is quite compact, so there are not long distances to travel. We stayed for 10 days, and would happily have stayed longer, but equally it makes a good destination for a shorter break as well. Local benefits? Yes, to a large extent. It is a pity... (more)Edward Milford
Rajasthan art history & architecture tour
From
£580
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were two big parts of our holiday: the culture and the nature. From a cultural perspective, we learned so much about the history of various cultures within Rajasthan. The forts we visited (Mehrangarh, Roopangarh, Amber) were amazing, but the highlight was definitely staying at Jog Niwas, where our host/organizer Shanane Davis lives. She taught us so much about patronage and connoisseurship, sharing with our whole family a remarkably vast knowledge about textiles, art,... (more)Robert Macauley
Burma holiday, rivers & railways
From
£3,815
including UK flights
Memorable parts? It's difficult to choose one moment. The train ride from Pwin Oo Lwin to Hsipaw was wonderful. Spending days on Inle Lake was fabulous. Seeing the ancient city of Bagan from the basket of the hot air balloon was magic! Tips? Try not to do too much on any given day. Take some time to sit and watch people as they go about their daily lives. Don't stick strictly to any given itinerary. Local benefits? Local people were employed as guides and drivers. We supported... (more)Irene Chisholm

From
£2,495

Whale Watching and Wildlife Safari was the most memorable part of this trip (more)Phil Miller
The accommodation was the most luxurious, most welcoming, most helpful place we have ever stayed in; and the walks through the tea estate with idyllic views of the reservoir and surrounding hills, both relaxing and inspiring. (more)Ruth Le Guen
History, culture & wildlife of India holiday
From
£1,336
excluding flights
My stay at the Wild Mahseer in Assam was very special. Great hospitality, beautiful lodgings and interesting environmental projects. (more)Liz Mcmanus
I have told the holiday provider that they do a great job . (more)Joel Montague
The most exciting part was not on the original programme. We asked Rajat to give us somewhat more nature and less culture. He arranged for us to spend a day and two nights in a resort on the Kabini Lake, across from the Nagarhole National Park. On a boat safari at dusk, amidst myriad birds and beasts, we saw a male tiger emerging muddily from the river, slinking into the jungle. (more)Robin Fox
Honeymoon to Sri Lanka
From
£1,250
excluding flights
Most memorable were Seeing the (many, many) elephants by jeep safari in the national park...Climbing up Sigirya rock and admiring the spectacular views, and then swimming in the hotel pool beneath during the stormy monsoon rain....We really enjoyed our snapshot of Sri Lanka and would love to go back sometime. (more)Joanna Brown
A great experience with a good insight into the diverse nature and culture of Sri Lanka and its people and religions. It was definitely worth all the planning and the cost and we would probably go again given the opportunity in the future. (more)Alastair Francis
The most memorable part was definitely the look of pure joy on my wife's face when taking a bath with an elephant at the Millenium Foundation... (more)John Dodson

Magical. Loved every minute. 4 days that felt like 2 weeks they were so full of sights and sounds and wonderful people. A brilliant short break. (more)ali king

excellent (more)Alice Leftley
Most memorable part? There were many: the hike up towards Jebel Toubkal; the old medina in Fez; the call to prayer of the muezzin; stepping into the intricate interiors hidden behind the facades... (more)Peter John Massyn
All the Moroccans that we met were friendly welcoming and smiling. (more)Bill Jowett

I would rate it very highly, great experiences, well organised, we felt very wwell looked after and entertained the whole time. (more)Cath Errington
I booked with Jith, who helped in every way he could, to make it a great trip, in particular when we had to change flights and plan. His driver, Upali, was wonderful and made sure that my time in Sri Lanka was as good as possible. He gave me lots of information about Sri Lanka, the people, history and country. (more)Karen Pedersen

From
£585

Just go. (more)David Hayward
Fantastic. We fitted so much into 5 days, and stretched ourselves physically & culturally. It was a great trip. (more)Nicole Stallard
Petra was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Geraldine Hillmale
Egypt holiday, tailor made
From
£2,270
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the ancient Egyptian sites that are so old and so famous, to actually see them in real life. And to be able to see so much in a few days without feeling rushed! Tips? It is worth if possible to book a private guide, as the only (somewhat) negative comment is that with a big group (off the cruise) the guided tours are not as interesting than when it is exactly according to your timetable and interests. Local benefits? Yes, in principle, but given the... (more)Katrin Nyman-Metcalf
Cambodia holiday, culture & coast
From
£3,650
including UK flights
Memorable parts? There were many memorable moments but the temples were definitely a high point. Tips? Definitely go for the option of having your own driver - makes everything much easier. Local benefits? Yes as tourism is putting much needed money into Cambodia and local people were used by the company as guides etc. Overall rating? 8 out of 10. (more)Pauline Sieler
