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
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
From £1866 - £2095 excluding flights
Mongolia adventure holiday, off the beaten track
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
The most memorable parts were: Travelling across vast plains in the Gobi, with no roads no buildings no artificial light, and stopping to listen to the silence. The immense blue sky. The generosity and kindness of Mongolians... (more)Alison Cathles
From £1449 - £2074 excluding flights
Galapagos adventure holiday
This has to be one of my best trips ever!! Highly recommended! The Galapagos has to be on everyone's bucket list! (more)Mei Yoke Chan
We feel we've had many 5-star holidays but this was certainly one of them. (more)Robert Coifman
Very enjoyable....We hiked the Inca trail; catching sight of Machu Picchu through the cloud as we approached was spectacular! (more)Sue Johnson
From £2423 - £2556 excluding flights
Nepal extreme activity holiday
Brilliant!! The most memorable part has to have been rafting the G4 rapids on the Bhote Koshi with thunder and lightning, rain bouncing off the water and 1.5cm hailstones falling from the sky, still all in 27 degrees heat, wow amazing! (more)Neil Whittemore
I had a brilliant time on this holiday and it fulfilled most of what I wanted to get out of the trip. (more)Murray Hendriksen
From £1690 including domestic flights only
Thailand and Laos adventure holiday, Bangkok to Vang Vieng
5*++++++++ It was absolutely superb! The operator may be a small company but it's dedication to providing the best service and most rounded and authentic personal experience of the country meant that I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. (more)Alice Ross
This trip was an amazing introduction to southeast Asia for me. I felt that my experience of Thailand and Laos was enhanced by this trip...Trekking throughout the north of Laos was amazing. We had a wonderful guide that was proud to show of his country, people, food, history and culture's. (more)Amy Worthington
From £2250 excluding flights
Indochina tours
Very good...Walking the Fitzroy track in Patagonia was the most memorable part (more)Carol McKearney
Laos is beautiful and the people are gentle and kind. Vietnam is crazy, hectic with stunning beaches and Halong Bay, Wow...Excellent. (more)Anne Honeyball
was one of the best trips I have ever done. We experienced all kinds of travel, visited many amazing sites and learned more in one month than most people do in a lifetime. The most memorable part was the homestay where we experienced what life really is for the locals who were so welcoming and friendly to us. (more)Sarah Beddow
From £2330 - £2640 excluding flights
Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh holiday in Vietnam
Wonderful people to travel with in a truly special country. Healing Bay & Hoi An take some beating. Utterly memorable. I loved it! (more)John McLaughlin
A most enjoyable time...a really memorable trip. (more)Mary Rae
Very good - I truly enjoyed the whole experience. The whole trip was great but the most memorable part was probably the motorbike tour through the countryside around Hue. (more)Gail Morris
From £668 - £855 excluding flights
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
Fabulous if you're into activity holidays that are not too crowded. (more)Cordelia Howitt
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable holiday. (more)Graeme Everard
From £820 - £940 excluding flights
Rajasthan tours, India
Don't hesitate to book. Just go! It was amazing. The operator uses local transport, including trains. The hotels were small businesses and not part of large world wide chains. Our group was a mix of ages from 20 year olds to over 60's so it is suitable for all wanting to experience India. (more)Kathryn Heirons
Most memorable - the amazing places we stayed and the wonderful people we met most exciting - being driven through the streets of Delhi, it got the adrenaline pumping anyway! (more)Beki Williams
We had many memorable and exciting experiences from this trip. Some of the local villages we visited were fantastic in terms of getting a glimpse of rural life in Rajasthan. We also stayed at some very interesting accommodation. (more)R and K Mackenzie
From £702 - £905 excluding flights

From €3170 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
From £1499 excluding flights
Cycling tour in Catalonia for food lovers, Spain
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
Biking in the beautiful country of Spain with my husband and good friends was the most memorable part. It was a wonderful experience, great trails, food and memories to last a lifetime. I am planning my next trip now! (more)Mark Edwards

From €995 - €1190 excluding flights
North India cultural tour
Holiday was a great to help me see my own culture with completely new eyes and become more aware of things that I have taken for granted in the past. (more)Judith Brockmann
A very good trip. Varanasi, the camaraderie of group members and our group leader and seeing India in action were the best parts of the trip. (more)Michael Adams
I am in my 50s and I found the pace excellent - no more than 3 nights anywhere - arrive - shower/rest - orientation walk then choose your activities and what a great diversity of activities. I found it stimulating and fun. (more)Hazel Durbridge
From £680 - £845 excluding flights
Activity holiday in Montenegro
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
Everytime you thought you'd seen the best Emma or Ben managed to show us something even more jaw droppingly beautiful. Every day was different, from the amazing wild life and birds, to the glorious hidden water pools high in the hills, to the monasteries in the lake, this holiday had everything. (more)Debbie Maitland
This holiday has got it all. If you love nature in all it's aspects and you love to put your own effort into getting to know the scenery, this is your holiday! (more)Katrien Ertryckx
From £495 - £695 excluding flights
Northern Lights, glaciers and ice photography holiday Iceland
It was fantastic. The tour guides were very responsive to local conditions and flexible to the interests of the group. They were very well organized and knew which sites would be good at different times of day for photography. The group had people at different levels of photography experience, but the common interest brought people together. (more)Christopher Gawronski
Excellent. Inspiring. Exhausting. I would do it all again tomorrow. (more)Tania Skye
Totally memorable, for all the best reasons!...We would unhesitatingly recommend this Holiday. (more)Suzanne de Pelsenaire
From £2200 - £2300 excluding flights
Vietnam holiday
The best parts were the old town and cycling in Hoi An. (more)Fiona Christie
The most memorable part was the home stay on the Meakon delta and the National Park. I also love kayaking and seeing the wild monkeys in Haylon bay. (more)Juliet Price
Cambodia - the temples of Angkor Wat are a true gem; Phnom Penh and its museums as well as the recent Cambodian history were heart breaking but very educational. (more)martina kocjan
From £1144 - £1660 excluding flights
Catalonia self guided cycling holiday, Spain
Loved the fact that this worked so well for my husband and I - he's a serious recreational cyclist and I'm an avid cyclist but more casual in my approach. We're '50 something's' and found this all very enjoyable. (more)Beth from Canada
What a fantastic holiday! Cycling each day down a new route, through vineyards, small hamlets, to the beach! A holiday quite different to anything we had both been on before. (more)Claire Hermolle
It was well organised. (more)Jane Coward
From €735 - €875 excluding flights
Vietnam to Thailand, small group holiday
Memorable parts? All the tour has been exciting. Tips? Arrival in Saigon without any city visit is not so useful and could be avoided. Local benefits? Absolutely yes. Overall rating? (more)Terry Basilico
From £402 - £605 excluding flights
Reunification Express holiday, Vietnam
The most memorable part was the motorbike tour in Hue & overnight boat trip on Halong Bay. We stayed in lovely owned hotels & ate in family owned restaurants. (more)Samantha Rogers
The association with other travelers and meals were very pleasant. (more)Gayle Avant
From £807 - £1170 excluding flights
Self guided walking holiday in France
Excellent. Can't say I feel reborn as the muscles still ache a bit - but certainly refreshed with a smile on our faces. (more)Corynne Cooper
The beautiful countryside waiting to be explore everyday, and returning back to an amazing 4 course meal every evening. A lovely combination. All enjoyed at my own pace. (more)Rosemary Henderson
Really ,really good, relaxing and refreshing. You will be very well looked after and feel genuinely welcome. (more)Jane Haywood
From £663 - £735 excluding flights
Cambodia six day tour
Excellent! Cambodia is a great place to visit and we were looked after with great care and attention - and had lots of laughs. Our guide was particularly keen to emphasise the use of local expertise and the emphasis on supporting environmental projects. (more)Richard Evans
It was all good - I enjoyed meeting the group, the tour guide and also the different part of the holiday. The killing fields were thought provoking. The temples of Angor amazing in so many different ways. (more)Elizabeth Carmichael
Our group leader was very conscientious and knowledgeable, and was really keen to introduce us to his country. (more)Eleanor Attridge
From £655 - £810 excluding flights
Langtang Valley trekking holiday, Nepal
The guides know the families who run the Tea Houses where we stayed ,and on many occasions we were greeted as old friends ! Also by being in a small group the impact on the environment and in the villages we stayed was not as significant as if we'd been in a larger group. (more)Jane Elliott
The western and Nepali guides and porters were great - always smiling and ready to make sure everyone was happy. An excellent trip in all aspects. (more)patricia barber
This trip has some of the most beautiful nature and scenery you will ever see in your life. (more)Albert Assely
From £935 excluding flights
Small group holiday to Burma
Wonderful! We loved the country and the people, so friendly and kind. We can make no criticism. (more)Eleanor Stewart
Don't hesitate - just go! The operator are an independent company who care that you get the best holiday possible. And they are small enough to make sure you see some of the top sights, but also get you in to see off the beaten track places. (more)Helen White
We probably would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the expansion of the rating to say that it was 'simply the best holiday I have ever been on'! We have been on other wonderful holidays, but this was up there with the best. (more)John Lippiett
From £2825 - £3195 including UK flights
Northern Lights & killer whales photography holiday, Iceland
We had a 24hr period where everything just went right. Killer Whales, dolphins and a surprise display of a fantastic Aurora...It was a fantastic holiday. (more)Jenny Lacey
The most memorable parts were seeing the Orca swim under the bridge we were standing on and the grade 5 Aurora Borealis - painting the sky in technicolour! (more)Keith Muir
Good holiday. The emphasis is on photography (all levels) and there is enough time at each stop. Experienced photographers to help you and you also get to see some lovely places in Iceland. (more)Rebecca
From £1700 - £1800 excluding flights
Ethiopia cultural holidays
Although the Churches, Museums and Palaces were stunning and memorable the aspect that made the most impact was meeting people in different parts of Ethiopia and gaining some understanding of how they live. (more)Lauren Kaswell
Go with an open mind and you will have many wonderful surprises (more)Margarita Lytle
very good....rock cut churches of lalibela and tigray, waking up in the crisp cool morning in tigray with the gheralta mtns in clear view, right in front of my room in beautiful gheralta lodge, nice evenings by the lake tana (more)berta pires
From £1999 - £2150 excluding flights
Catalonia self guided walking holidays
The awesome coastal and inland scenery, the beautifully clear sea and the wildlife combined to make every day really interesting. (more)Peter Cheetham
The variety and diversity of the scenery each day contributed greatly to making this a most memorable experience. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful scenery, you may not come this way again. (more)Joy Field
I loved the walk along the rocky coast from secluded beach to secluded beach. Seeing nesting storks in the Aiguamolls national park was a highlight too! (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
From €665 - €792 excluding flights
Bolivia and Peru tour
Memorable parts? Inca Trail! Making it and seeing Machu Picchu. Tips? Bring clothing for a variety of weather. Be prepared for early mornings, the possibility of altitude sickness... The more in shape you are, the more you will get out of the trip as well! Local benefits? Yes, I think the homestays were great, and the trip encompassed ecotourism, especially in the Amazon. Overall rating? Great. (more)Rachel Carbonell
From £2775 - £3175 excluding flights
Oman small group tour
The most memorable part of the holiday was crossing the mountains and the desert, and having a clear night sky in the desert. Omani are really hospitable. (more)Yann Bacon
