Mekong adventure holiday, Laos & Cambodia
Memorable parts? Every day was something different, we walked through jungle; rode elephants; explored caves and sailed in wooden boats, sometimes we used a wooden plank, sometimes we were knee deep in the river! We saw amazing temples and wooden huts that the locals lived in, we saw how people lived and how they dried peppers in their satellite dishes! There were sad parts too, understanding the legacy of the Vietnam war, unexploded bombs everywhere and maimed people. However, the people... (more)Colin Smith
From £3000 - £3200 including UK flights
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

Five stars! It was, as stated, the adventure of a lifetime, which we were expecting, but we did not plan to gain so much more, in the way of making friends and feeling a part of missions that transcended mere tourism. (more)Tania Modleski
We had so many memorable experiences. Watching a beautiful leopard and her cub was up there, as was spending an hour watching six young elephants play in a waterhole. (more)Ellen Weiss

Excellent. Very well organised. Guides knew their stuff and were always helpful and cheerful. It was a tremendous experience and I would love to go again - maybe to a different part of this huge and empty country. (more)Theresa Partington
Memorable, beautiful, with a bit of challenge [especially for a 75 year old, me] (more)Elizabeth Wingate

Burma photography tour
Excellent small group led by an experienced photographer who showed us many different ways of using light and lenses and who was also relaxed and fun to be with. Our experiences felt real. (more)elizabeth McCormick

From £3400 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

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

Holidays to Uganda
Memorable parts? Getting close to gorillas in their forest home will be unforgettable. The Nile boat trips are excellent also. Tips? Just go.

Benefits local people only in so far that hotels and guiding provide jobs. Benefits the environment because visitors create a reason for the national... (more)Gerard O'Hanlon
