Family holiday in Costa Rica
Memorable parts? Tortuguero National Park-beautuful accomodation in the middle of the rainforest with howler monkeys and loads of birdlife very close-boat trip really quiet and special. Zipwiring incredible- Quite physically demanding but worth it as really long-I think 18 in total zip wires and run across a valley with the rainforest beneath you-Amazing. Tips? Great for teenagers- Busy itinary and good mix of wildlife walks/boat trips where you get really close and the adventure... (more)Helen Shard

Wonderful guides, incredible access to the remotest regions and real people... Wonderful - genuinely the holiday of a lifetime and a never to be forgotten special experience. (more)Dan Cobley
Every day brought new experiences. The animals just kept coming out on cue! Brilliant - I don’t know how we will top it. (more)Monica Szolin-Jones
Most memorable were waking to the sound of a lion killing a wildebeast behind our tent in Amboseli National Park campsite. Singing and dancing with 500 children from a local primary school in Tanzania. (more)Gaenor Morris
From US $2800 excluding flights
Isle of Mull and west coast of Scotland cruise
Memorable parts? The whole of our holiday was wonderful. The crew were all great, friendly and so helpful. The food was delicious every meal, and plentiful too! The cruise was the best way to see some of Scotland’s beautiful scenery and wildlife. The only fault, we wished it didn't have to end! Tips? Don't forget your binoculars. Sensible shoes and a waterproof for when up on deck and the weather damp. Local benefits? I am not sure about these things as we didn't buy any... (more)julie Clease

Croatia holiday, activity week
An amazing experience and it has given us an incentive to consider how we become fitter, eat more vegetarian dishes and how invigorating it is to try new things. Never too late to try! (more)Veronica Thompson

From £820 - £940 excluding flights
Romania adventure holiday
Excellent...there were too many highlights for us to single out any one experience as the most memorable. Every day was memorable and for all the right reasons. (more)Gerald Sherry
Successful (more)Marcia Westreich
One of the most memorable things was the beautiful Carpathian countryside and the people working in the fields as of yesteryear. The haymaking and haystacks were fascinating and we all fell in love with rural Romania. (more)Joan Houston

It was great. We could do as much as we wanted. We could have made it as hard or easy as we liked. We loved being active. (more)Liz Wood

Great, very enjoyable, it was so calm and peaceful around the lake you felt miles away from everything else and the activities were very manageable making it a lovely relaxing holiday. (more)Jennifer Cummins
Difficult to pick one [best bit] from a week of fabulous experiences. Lake Skada is stunningly beautiful, Villa Miele is very comfortable, the hiking and kayaking are both great and over a week you get to really experience the area through the eyes of people who know and love it. It is a fantastic holiday. (more)Linda Davies
From £495 - £695 excluding flights
Small group holidays to Madagascar
Wonderful tho' it was to see wildlife in natural habitate, the standout thing for me was the wonderful people I met and catching a glimpse into their customs and cultures. (more)Stephanie Diggon
The 4x4 trip down the river was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Belinda Minshall
The most fantastic holiday we have experienced and totally different from any location we have been to.

(more)George Bannister
From £2195 excluding flights

Great experience and gave us a good taste of sailing, now ready for some more! (more)Melanie Meurant
The most memorable part of the holiday were the views from ashore and on dry land. The Cyclades are really unique. (more)Lorenza Campana
There were so many highlights it is hard to pick out the best - snorkelling in clear blue waters, visiting deserted beaches, wandering through the streets of ancient villages far away from all the tourists, eating marvellous local food, seeing ancient ruins, sailing under starry skies.... (more)Madeleine Minto
From £458 - £558 excluding flights
Liveaboard diving and sailing holiday in Greece
We could not rate our holiday any higher. All six of us are eager to return. We miss the stories and history learned from Sotiris and Annie, the deliciousness of the local authentic food, the curiosity of learning about a new place and its culuture and the genuineness of the hospitality everywhere. (more)Danielle Romme
I had a really lovely time. (more)Melandee Brown
Excellent...For me it was the opportunity to see some amazing places, both on land and underwater. The night dive on Polygaios with the bioluminescent plankton was mind-blowing, Avatar style! (more)Mathias Bredvei
From £555 - £647 excluding flights
Family holiday to India, sightseeing and safari
Memorable parts? It was all such a memorable trip! I guess the biggest pleasure I had this time was sharing my love of India with my 11 year old granddaughter. Jaipur was wonderful, as were the frescos in Nawalgarh and the amazing hotel in Surajgarh and I haven't mentioned Agra and Fatepur Sikri! Tips? Check the weather, it's cold overnight and early starts mean you need warm clothing as well as lighter cottons for the day time. My granddaughter had a problem with spicy food and... (more)Kathryn Park
From £1309 - £1445 including UK flights
Family teenager holiday in Peru
Memorable parts? The camping, food and walking through the Sun Gate and seeing Machu Piccu are a few of my many highlights. Our guide, Reni was terrific and the family we travelled with were super. The holiday gradually gears you up for the big trek, you acclimatise in Cusco before exploring the Sacred Valley and attempting the mountain bike ride. Tips? The accommodation is on the whole fairly basic, with one or two quirky gems, but we weren't expecting the hotel in Agua Calientes... (more)Jo Turnbull
From £2954 - £3264 including UK flights
Family holiday in Italy
Excellent. Never been on a led holiday before and it was amazing - no stress as everything taken care of but still room for some choices. Where next? (more)Claire Nicol
Great...Climbing Vesuvius and the Capri boat trip were the most memorable parts. (more)Claire Wilde
The holiday in Italy was the 2nd organized by Responsibletravel.com and I am recommending your company to all my friends and family members. Looking forward for the next adventure! (more)Teresa Trippenbach
From £1219 - £1539 including UK flights
Mexico, Belize and Guatemala holiday
Fantastic. My teenage, and somewhat well-travelled children have rated it as the best holiday ever. (more)Alex Holmes
The morning spent at Tikal in Guatemala was excellent. This activity is definitely best done in the early morning light as it gets very warm and less pleasant to walk in the jungle after 10am. (more)Diana Urbina
From £693 - £769 excluding flights
Learn Spanish and walk the Camino de Santiago, Spain
The entire week was good fun and well organised. I was a complete beginner in Spanish and was surprised at how much ground we managed to cover. The teachers and walking guide were all very friendly and accommodating. (more)Paula Rutherford
I had a great time in ways I didn't expect. The area is stunning and I loved the local food. (more)Christine Riley
This was fantastic, and I would do it again tomorrow if I could! (more)Cynthia Krom
From €400 excluding flights
Short break cruise in Scotland, Western Isles
Memorable parts? The stunning scenery and peaceful moorings. The wildlife especially the seals and beautiful shoals of jellyfish floating like alien creatures in a calm sea. The first ever fish caught by one of our party - a splendid mackerel! The delicious food and good company of Michael and Colette. The successful descent into the dinghy of a nervous member of our party - if she can do it with Michael's patient help anyone can. Raising and lowering the anchor - tying knots and rope throwing... (more)Fiona Morrison
From £690 - £964 excluding flights
Burma cultural holiday
I've fallen in love with this country, didn't want to leave, enjoyed every minute, will defiantly go back one day. (more)Andy Rowlands
All the guides we had were Myanmar people, trained in the country and speaking good English. They were keen for us to see that the country has a chance for positive development and were happy to discuss social and economic prospects. (more)Phil Raybould
I loved it, the Myanmar people are very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back. (more)Mark Meyrick
From £1499 - £1699 excluding flights
Small group cooking holiday in Thailand
I loved the Central Plains homestay, after Bangkok it was amazingly beautiful and peaceful. All the cooking schools were so beautiful and peaceful, and the food was amazing! (more)Suzanne Smith
The most memorable part of the holiday was definitely the cooking ... and all the eating. Swimming in the Andaman sea was also a real highlight. (more)Shelley Kennedy
The cooking and the eating were the most memorable! Fabulous. (more)Stacey Cooper
From £2225 including UK flights
Mumbai to Delhi tour through Rajasthan, India
A fantastic experience. I feel I learned so much about India. This was the best possible experience I could have had. (more)Pauline Hughes
This was more than a holiday, it was an experience...If you relish the thought of the unexpected and want to see some authentic indian life, this tour is for you. (more)susan richards
Sharing meals and time with local families. In their homes and on a camel trek were certainly two of the highlights. Having Krishna as a guide added a special dimension to the trip. (more)terry matthews
From £1200 excluding flights
Sri Lanka small group holiday
Memorable parts? Everything. The mixture of styles and settings was 100% amazing. Each one fulfilling a different part of the Sri Lanka experience. Each one had novelty; each one was for me just right. I could not and did not expect anything better on this style and type of tour. Tips? Don't worry. Just relax and go with the flow. Everyone without exception that we met and who assisted us was magnificent. Local benefits? Yes. We also benefited from more local insight than... (more)Tim Harber
From £2275 including UK flights
Biking holiday in Kenya & Tanzania
I would go again without hesitation. A perfectly organized tour with enough space for individual changes. Well done! (more)Roman Holderbach
The most memorable part of our holiday was the time spent in a very remote area of Tanzania with the Masai. We were privileged to visit their homes and witness their day to day living. An amazing experience! (more)Susan Ducollet-Holliday
Brilliant! I have done supported tours in USA, Cuba, Brazil and Europe and this is the gold standard in terms of support, food, attention to detail, professionalism, friendliness etc. etc. I cannot recommend this company too highly. Go have fun! (more)Jane Thurnell-Read
From US $3100 excluding flights
Cuba dance holiday
Fabulous - loved Cuba, my first visit, but I will be back, and might even do this trip again! (more)Jerry Fenner
I had an absolutely fantastic time. Our group was so lovely and I am sure we will stay in touch. Our homestay was perfect. (more)Sharon Ahern
The most memorable parts were the dancing and meeting people. (more)Rebecca Naidis
From £1345 excluding flights
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
From £1289 - £1451 including UK flights

Excellent - a truly amazing holiday for all the family! We met some wonderful, dedicated people, learnt an awful lot, saw some incredible wildlife- large and small - and have returned home with some amazing memories. (more)Rachel Gray
This was one of the best holidays we have experienced. The animal sightings were brilliant, the information we received about the bush was exceptional and above all, the friendliness of all the guides and staff and their desire to consider our every need resulted in a truly memorable holiday. (more)kim plumb
Individual highlights are too many to mention but one consistent one was the look on the girls faces when we found something special on a game drive...Fantastic, well organised and great value for money. (more)Neil Wilson
From £1425 - £1695 excluding flights
Morocco family holiday
It was a great holiday for us with many fond memories I would do this trip again! (more)Elke Franc-Poole
Excellent experience, especially for the children. A great tour to get an idea of different ways of life in Morocco, from rural villages to big cities. (more)Kate Newman
All amazing - sea kayaking over the sunken city, trip on the Gulet, theatre at Xanthos and friendly Turkish people...Relaxing, fun, educational. (more)Amanda Weaver

The holiday was brilliant. Activity balanced with proper relaxation. We have come back really rejuvenated. Craig and Xania (and Zora-the dog) work very well together to pull the experience together so you can just get on and enjoy your break. (more)Paul Irving
Excellent! The best parts were actively exploring the Island of Vis, on bikes, kayaks and foot. Beautiful place, beautiful people. (more)Diane Johnson
Our kids, aged 5 and 11 had a terrific time and really loved the activities as well as mucking about in the sea, snorkelling and swimming...Great! "Fantastic, awesome, really good!" (comments from the kids). (more)Diana Lloyd
