Family holiday in Thailand
Far beyond my expectations. Outstanding....Many memorable moments: from the home stay at Bangkok, to the food experiences, from the island hopping to the emerald pool. Maybe the best part was the people part: guides, drivers, locals were all very super helpful and kind. (more)Michael Fattore
We all thoroughly enjoyed every part of the experience and loved the intensity and variety of the well organised and full itinerary. (more)Caren Matthews-Lane
Most memorable were the palaces and temples of Bangkok, closely followed by the jungle walk! Best yet for all of us. (more)Barbara Chadband

Family holiday to Jordan, Journey to the Lost City
At the risk of sounding over the top with enthusiasm I would answer "All of it" to this question. We went to Jordan and returned renewed, stimulated and educated and with a new understanding of the culture, history and politics of the Middle East. This was in in no small way due to the effort and enthusiasm of our guide, Usama Awad. Are all of this companies guides as brilliant as he was? (more)Fiona O
It was a very inspirational holiday...Staying at Dana guesthouse supported a very important nature biosphere. (more)sharyn hall
This trip delivered everything we wanted, adventure, relaxation, new experiences - without having to think too much after a busy year, thanks to our wonderful guide. (more)Tania Riddiford

Family holiday in Vietnam
Our guide Hai was fantastic, he had lots of knowledge, had a great sence of humour and looked after us well. He really helped make the holiday as fantastic as it was. (more)Elizabeth Morgan
We were immersed in this really poor country, with the hint of past traumatic occupation and wars, and received the most generous opening of hearts from this 80% buddhist country. (more)Victoria Macdonald
From £1704 - £2204 including UK flights
Family adventure holiday to Nepal
The whole experience will live with us forever and it is almost impossible to single out separate elements. Overall the people were fantastic, so friendly, helpful and humorous and our guide was simply outstanding. (more)Andrew Mackay
The most exciting part was the snow - so long since we have had 'real' snow in the south of England. (more)Jilly Knight
The trek was an excellent adventure - Jagan, our guide was outstanding, especially with our children (7 & 5 years old) who were able to walk the entire trek! (more)Lisa Kelly
From £2002 - £2239 including UK flights
Egypt family holiday, Feluccas & Pharaohs
I think for my 11 year old daughter, seeing everything that she has been learning about in school about Egypt come alive before her very eyes was exciting. Overrall our holiday was one of the best I have done. All our guides, especially Wallide, were very well informed and enthusiastic. He was wonderful with the children and put them totally at ease which made it very easy for the parents to relax. (more)Ann Oversby
Sailing on a felucca along the Nile, then sleeping on deck overnight was the most memorable part... Excellent. (more)Julie Conder
Sailing from Aswan towards Luxor on a felluca with an over night camp on board was most memorable....My daughter and I loved nearly every minute of it. (more)Nicola Carroll
From £1195 - £1294 including UK flights
Family holiday for teenagers to Turkey
Nice and laid back as everything was organised for us, great selection of activities and a superb guide with excellent local knowledge. (more)Helen Williams
The trip was well organised. Staff were helpful at booking stage. We enjoyed all activities (scuba diving, jeep drive to gorge and sea kayaking) and loved our time on the gullet. (more)Elke Hein
5 star - fantastic! (more)Lisa Rawlings

Single parent holiday in Thailand
Memorable parts? Hell fire pass, kayaking along the river, seeing a rubber 'production plant' in the jungle on the side of the road. Tips? If you want to be in a group, donít book until the last minute, or until you have been told who else is on the holiday. Pack light. You donít need many clothes (itís hot out there!) and you do need to move from place to place quite a lot. Local benefits? Yes.... to a certain extent. Overall rating? We were well looked after, and... (more)Sue Cooper

Pyrenees family holiday, Andorra
Memorable parts? Two great parts of the holiday were the climb in the mist (with snow all around us) to a Pyrenees peak of around 2800m and the zip wiring over a beautiful reservoir and dam. Tips? Be brave and try every activity. Local benefits? The guides and local hotel owner were originally British but are now resident in Andorra and they have partners who are local people. A number of the other staff were locals. Overall rating? The activities were excellent as... (more)Paul Lowenberg
