Borneo luxury holidays, tailor made
Magical...Fantastic - comment from my husband "I normally am ready to come back to work, but this time i absolutely hated it!" (more)Deborah Flint
Fantastic - the wildlife was amazing; watching elephants bathing in the river, snorkelling with turtles, scuba diving with sharks (small ones thankfully!), and the odd orangtan and probocis monkey! The people were extremely friendly and proud of their country. (more)Anna Davies
Making it to the top of Mount Kinabalu, spotting four wild orangutans and a huge croc on a Kinabatangan river cruise and Lankayan Island were the best. (more)Sue Cheung
From 3150 including UK flights
Kerala luxury holiday
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
Out of 100 - 100. Out of 10 - 10 Out of 5 -5 It was the most perfect holiday in the whole wide world. (more)Susan Ainger
From 2022 excluding flights

From 4850 including UK flights
Borneo holiday, Highlights of Borneo
Brilliant! Knowledgeable guides and small groups of like-minded people, who were interested in and cared about the natural environment of the place they were visiting. (more)Katy Wing

From 2665 including UK flights
Borneo tailor made holiday, wildlife & beaches
10 out of 10...the most memorable moment was seeing the Pygmy elephants on the banks of the Kinabatangan river playing, tugging up plants and placing them on their head. (more)Gill Bowles
We really enjoyed it and it lived up to expectations. (more)Steve Jameson
The most memorable part of the holiday was 100 pygmy elephants on the bank of the Kinabatangan River...Brilliant. Would do it again, and spend more time in each place. (more)Katie Southgate
From 2995 including UK flights
Trinidad and Tobago nature tours
Getting to the heart of Carnival on our day trip there was the most memorable part of the holiday...Excellent - lovely people, great bird life, and a huge variety of fish to snorkel with, just off the beach... (more)Mike Edwards
Excellent, I will pass on recommendations to friends and family (more)David Brierley
Excellent...The best part was the turtles at Mt Plaisir, Grande Riviere. We watched one laying her eggs, and later helped a lost hatchling find the sea! (more)Susan Holdsworth
From 2095 - 2850 including UK flights
Zambia and Malawi tailor made safaris
Memorable parts? All days and trip were memorable, but above all watching elephants crossing the river 30 metres away from us having lunch in Old Mondoro. Tips? 1. I'd check the daily planning of the activities. Given the winter climate, the scheduling for the days was perhaps too relaxing, with a very long pause from 11.00/11.30 to 15.30/16.00 depending on the camp. 2. Definitely GO to Lower Zambesi: in any brochure or Web Sites is presented ad a second choise vs. South Luangwa,... (more)Vincenzo Bracciale
From 4500 including UK flights
Southern India tour, temples & nature
Five stars! We had an incredible adventure for our honeymoon, and hope to go back. Southern India is breathtaking, and we had nothing but good experiences with all of the people and companies we traveled with. (more)Robyn Nadolny
Excellent, I can't say enough good things about the trip and the experience....There were two very memorable parts of the holiday. First the wonderful home stay in the Nilgiri mountains with Rajat and his family. An unforgettable experience that gave me a deeper understanding of the culture of South India. (more)Melinda Rice
I had a wonderful holiday. I have recommended it to many friends already. I think Akriti and explore India do a great job of making a trip across India easy. Great for people who want to go but feel overwhelmed or nervous. (more)Anna Perkins
From 494 excluding flights
Honeymoon to Sri Lanka
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
From 1150 excluding flights
Southern Africa luxury wildlife & beach holiday
Botswana was the best. We want to go back today!! One of the most memorable moments is arriving in our first camp, and barely two hours later, sitting on a Land Rover just meters from a male lion, and nothing between him and us! Just amazing! (more)Dirk Bettels
Do it! Money well spent... (more)Katrin Nyman Metcalf
From 8545 including UK flights
Borneo safari, jungle, mountain & beach
Unbelievable, fantastic, amazing etc. EVERY day was perfect. It was our honeymoon and so many little touches and extra effort was made for us. It really was magical. Thank you. (more)Ross Smith
The climb up Mount Kinabalu probably stands out as the best bit. An incredibly tough assent followed by a somewhat painful descent but what a sense of achievement and sat at the summit watching the sunrise having made the climb took away what little breath we had left! (more)Alexandra Glenn
Lots of it was exciting but seeing the Orangutans in the wild has to be the best bit. (more)Phil Pinchen
From 3100 excluding flights
Madagascar holidays, island adventure
Madagascar proved such an outstanding destination that it almost seems unfair to single out particular highlights...Ace. We loved it from first to last. We covered a great deal of ground and saw so much for the first time. (more)Maggie Wood
The 7 hour night trek (two hours in pirogue up river each way) to look at Madagascar wildlife in the rainforest, most of which in pouring rain, with a very good guide was the highlight. (more)Ann Monk
From 3860 excluding flights
Kenya luxury safari and beach holiday, 10 days
Memorable parts? Getting up close and personal with the animals both on safari, especially in Ndutu where it is possible to off road, but also in the tented accommodation where we were surrounded by frolicking vervet monkeys, bush babies, mongooses and even a herd of elephants on one particularly memorable morning! Tips? Opt for the tented accommodation options - they were our favourites. Local benefits? We were pleased that the company was Kenyan-owned, and that we were... (more)Natalie Sayers
From US $1730 - US $1840 excluding flights
Borneo holiday, Sarawak highlights
Memorable parts? Orang'utans at Semengohh, and staying with the Iban tribe at their lodge. Tips? Take lots of memory for your camera as there will be lots of things to photo. Local benefits? Yes, our guide at the Iban lodge was from that actual tribe, so the money was going directly to the locals. Overall rating? The holiday was excellent and had some truly memorable moments, highly recommended. (more)Antony Stanton
From 2525 including UK flights
Gorilla safari in Uganda
The whole holiday was memorable for all the best reasons but probably the most outstanding were the 2 days spent with the Mountain Gorillas. A memory that will live with me 'til the end of my days! (more)Judith Towell
Unforgettable experience in country very different from my own. I met some very gentle and helpful people who added much to my enjoyment. All travel arrangements went smoothly and as expected. Given the chance, I would love to return to Rwanda. (more)Patrick Taylor
The whole of our week in Rwanda was extraordinary and memorable... and we lost our hearts to this small and extremely beautiful country. We had two days gorilla tracking which were wonderful - not least because of the great organisation and knowledge of the local guides and trackers. (more)Caroline Gant
From 3195 excluding flights
Brazil tour, Iguazu Falls to Rio
Memorable parts? The whole experience was excellent but the operator did a great job on the ground and their guides, especially the one in Rio, were very good. I guess for me, getting the chance to go to the Maracana for what was the last game to be played at the famous stadium (Flameng v Santos) was a real highlight. Tips? Use the local expertise of companies like operator. Local benefits? Difficult to say as we did a lot of internal flying (but you have to in Brazil), and... (more)Richard Kingscott
From 2700 including domestic flights only
Argentina & Uruguay tailormade luxury holiday
Memorable parts? Tipiluke Lodge was in a wonderful location, the staff were so friendly and the food and accommodation fantastic. We do not fish but had a great time riding around the estancia. Tips? In Calafate make sure you have prebooked a glacier trip. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Good. (more)Elizabeth Warren
From 2700 including domestic flights only
Ecuador and Galapagos holiday
Memorable parts? Zip-Lining in the Cloud Forest but the Galapagos was amazing. Tips? Definitely take a torch, wet weather clothing and a sense of humour. Local benefits? Yes, definitely. Overall rating? Brilliant but the cloud forest was a bit disappointing as we had continual rain and saw very few animals or birds. This also occurred in the Amazon. We were told by the operator that rain was minimal with short bursts. Obviously a joke. (more)Anne Goffin
From 4345 - 4555 excluding flights
