I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Absolutely fantastic. Had an amazing time and started planning the next on the way home. (more)Hayley Cripps
It supported local people. All lunches were arranged in local restaurants,
group tour to a local small farm where a lady cooked an amazing meal with wine and local brandies, all enjoyed on her porch. Very traditional food made by a local.
The holiday consisted of two parts, the first was sea kayaking around Komodo National park and the second part was trekking in the northern jungle of Sumatra. The main highlights included seeing Komodo Dragons, orangutans, elephant trekking, the scenery the people I meet and the landscapes. All made the holiday excellent. (more)Steve Bosworth
Far too many to mention, but I'll have a go: sleeping on deserted beaches, a school of dolphins passing just in front of our kayak, seeing a shark while snorkelling, the sound of two very large komodo dragons running through the undergrowth in our direction, great food and an outstanding local guide.
Most memorable was getting out on the sea and being able to travel at your own pace. The Islands are amazing and Miljet is a must see place, we loved it. (more)Chivers Libby
We enjoyed the kayaking because we were able to get away from the throng of tourists and it was an ideal holiday for the 3 active teenagers we had with us but easy enough for the adults. (more)Louise Solomon
The sea kayaking and snorkelling on Lopud island was great fun. It got quite interesting in terms of high waves on the way back which was a welcomed challenge. (more)Mariana Heinrich
This was a fabulous holiday with amazing people. As my first small group holiday, I was a bit unsure about what to expect but as soon as I arrived I felt comfortable and started having fun! Turkey is simply beautiful... (more)Fran Armitage
When we went on the Catamaran.
There is one guide per group and the group can be very small, even one person sometimes. Be prepared for bad wifi and no phone service and last minute itinerary changes.
Our holiday was local and helpful for small businesses.
I enjoyed my holiday very much and would recommend this for small group travel. (more)Natalie Jacob
Kayaking in beautiful landscapes with clear blue seas (more)Jules Dawkins
The most memorable or exciting part of your holiday? Kayaking from Lopud to Sunj on day three of the holiday, the wind got up a bit and it was exciting riding through the waves. (more)Roddy MacLeod
I loved almost everything! We had booked the sea-kayaking trip and were upgraded to the catamaran sailing trip for 5 of the 7 days, which was fantastic! I enjoyed seeing the different islands while sailing, biking and kayaking, as well as all the meals the guides organised for us at local people's houses. (more)Astryd Letrud
The highlight was the River Zrmanja kayak tour. Good, great location, you could virtually swim from the hotel. (more)Lois Simes
All of it was memorable! I guess the day we went on the Zrmanja and Krupa Rivers, - it was simply beautiful. Kayaking down rapids and swimming under waterfalls that we would have only got to because we were taken on the day. (more)Tim and Rachel Atkins
Had a wonderful adventure! Would never have dared to do something like this without a proper guide who knows the area and the equipment. Very impressed with the beautiful Turkish coastline and inspired to return. (more)Helen di Lallo
Quite an adventure, and requiring a reasonable level of fitness. Fantastic scenery, perfect weather and great swimming and snorkelling opportunities. (more)Alice baverstock
Stunning coastlines and great people; my favourite part was kayaking into this fabulous cave where the light turned the whole cave a beautiful blue colour. (more)Ross Geraghty
Thai people are friendly, happy and just genuinely playful. The ocean was warm, the jellyfish were incredible and the paddling was the best we've ever encountered. It was particularly exciting to paddle around the limestone islands, through the caves to the amazing hongs. More highlights: camping in a thunderstorm on Tarutao and watching the sleeping pythons in the mangrove trees. And of course, the food! John said it was out of this world and it was!

A brilliant trip. Got to get away from the crowded tourist areas and see the real beauty of Turkey. Really friendly and helpful guides and company owner who helped us with everything we needed and more. (more)Emma Borrows
An excellent guide who was knowledgeable about the environment, sights, history and culture of the region. Engin was able to entertain Adults and children alike with little surprises when energy levels were flagging. (more)Cathy Denney
Views from the mountains across to the Adriatic coast, walking in the Una River National Park in Bosnia, drinking Turkish coffee made on a small fire in the mountains, swimming in the icy clear green water of a small river and the majestic beauty of the Plitvice Lakes.
Make sure you have strong supportive footwear-as advised on booking, a lightweight day sac and lightweight kagoule

Hard to choose as the whole trip was so enjoyable. The team at the operator made me feel so welcome. They tailored the trip to my needs and checked in with the throughout my stay to ensure that everything was ok. (more)Fiona Moss
Our best day was our longest day kayaking on Kotor bay. The sea was as calm as a mill pond and the scenery was absolutely stunning. Toni took us to various islands and it was a really fantastic day. (more)Sue Morris
Paddling through dark caves to hidden lagoons. We had them to ourselves most of the time. The guide had 14 years experience as a kayak guide and knew the best places, away from the crowds. On the last day, the guide took me to a cave and lagoon he had only recently discovered. I also enjoyed the meals on the boat. The food was fresh and delicious, especially the seafood. The young crew were also a lot of fun.
Don't assume it will be warm. I went in... (more)Susan Pidgeon
Best bit: The stunning scenery, you quickly run out of adjectives. (more)Jacky Hanafin
Brilliant. Our guide Radovan was great - laid back, fun, skilful, knowledgeable and hard working: unlike on UK group kayak trips I've been on, we hardly ever had to portage our own kayaks; he moved them all to and fro at the end of the days (towing, bussing, ferrying them) when we needed to start somewhere new the next day. We hardly ever had to carry our own bags either which was luxurious for this kind of holiday! (more)Nicola Robinson
Besides the great nature, people from Sipan and Miljet are amazing. Specially at the guest house we stayed at Suduradj. (more)Manoela Penna
