Family cycling holiday in Kenya & Tanzania
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 NZ $3690 - NZ $4490 excluding flights
Archaeology holiday in Greece
Excellent! Our group consisted just of my wife and I so we got personal service from Christos, the Company Operations Director, for the the whole week. The hotel we stayed in was very comfortable, the staff most attentive and the general atmosphere most congenial. (more)Julian Grubb
Excellent. One of my favourite holidays - I'd loved the Peloponnese when I went once as a child and it all lived up to my rose-tinted memories of the place. Two of us in the group had studied Classics which was our reason for going, and we weren't disappointed by the archaeological guides who took us round or the amount of time we had to explore for ourselves. As a company they were great at making sure we were taken care of and a great holiday. (more)Naranee Ruthra-Rajan
This was a wonderful holiday... The guides we had at the sites were excellent and our tour leader just great. The tour was quite simply more than we could have imagined! (more)Alison Marshall
From €1150 excluding flights
Kayaking holiday in Montenegro, Lake Skadar
Swimming in mountain pools and lakes, from the breathtakingly cold to the sublimely warm. Kayaking across an almost deserted lake and feeling special and privileged to be able to share in such a spectacular landscape...This has been an incredible holiday, we didn't stop saying how wonderful it was all the time we were there. (more)Jane Barnes
The Kayak trips on Lake Skadar blew me away. The relative solitude combined with the impressive landscapes on both the Montenegrin and Albanian sides of the lake made it one of the most beautiful places I've ever been....I really couldn't have wished for a better holiday. (more)Mandy Reynolds
I rate the holiday very highly indeed. We did a lot in a single week and came back relaxed and happy. We would definitely come again sometime. (more)Mike Jewson
From £530 - £720 excluding flights
Mongolia adventure holiday, off the beaten track
Memorable parts? 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. Thunder and lightening echoing around the mountains while we watched from our tents. The unexpected - the tour leader was flexible and a number of times we took unscheduled opportunities to see wildlife, talk to local people, find out about the election that was going on while we... (more)Alison Cathles
From £1550 excluding flights
Spanish course & walking holiday, Picos de Europa, Spain
Had a great time. Everyone was very friendly, the teaching by Ana and Celine was brilliant and perfectly judged for my level of ability. The surrounding mountains are lovely and Jamie took us on some great walks in the afternoons. The food and drink in the local bars and restaurants was excellent. I came home with considerably greater confidence in Spanish. (more)Andrew Robinson
Excellent. The language school, walks, village and environment were better than I had dared to hope they would be. I hope I have a chance to return for a longer stay. (more)Cecilia Johnson
Loved it! I was made to feel right at home from the minute I met the crew; I made new friends, improved my Spanish and got to walk off the local cheese and cider in the spectacular Picos de Europa. I really didn't want to leave! (more)Carina Kane
From €325 excluding flights
Nepal extreme activity holiday
Memorable parts? Starting mountain biking at 4000meters with many mountain peaks surrounding. Making new friends and feeling welcome in the trip group. Tips? Be relaxed and open minded to new people and different culture. Local benefits? Many aspects of the trip encouraged us to help local people and leave the environment clean. Overall rating? 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
South Africa Safari holiday, 14 days
Excellent. The planning and execution of the entire holiday was superb. Everybody involved helped to make this a most memorable experience and we were extremely well looked after at all times. (more)Janet Thomas
This was a fabulous holiday which exceeded all our (high) expectations. From the time we expressed an interest in going on this safari, to dropping us at the airport at the end of our holiday we experienced a very attentive and personal service. I would definitely go again. (more)Lesley Munro
This was a great holiday in the true sense of the word and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to any like-minded traveller. The geniality and hospitality of all staff concerned in the various reserves were truly exceptional. (more)Georgia Tracey
From £2595 excluding flights
Kayaking holiday in Indonesia, Komodo Dragon expedition
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. (more)Liz Kalton
I loved the kayaking, the snorkelling and seeing the Komodo Dragons... It was great, would do it again but needs a few more days kayaking in it! (more)Karen Trotter
From £1695 excluding flights
Cuba family holiday
Overall, a brilliant trip ! We enjoyed the beautiful unspoilt beach and sea at the end of our trip...The country is beautiful, the inhabitants are extremely friendly, our guide and the bus driver were both fantastic (more)Xavier Pujos
It was a great trip, despite a lot of bussing around: fascinating; frustrating; beautiful; run-down; bubbling with friendliness; yet often like a living corpse. Not a gourmet paradise but lots of great music. (more)Andrew James
For us day one was fantastic with the open top American cars coming to take us for a trip wow. The other highlight was swimming in the fresh water rivers. (more)Elizabeth Morgan
From £1669 - £1959 including UK flights
Family tour to Morocco
The most memorable part was the camping trip into the Sahara Desert and the nights at Tazzarine Campsite - home of Said and his family. (more)Meriel Griffiths
This was an amazing experience. The trip was suitable for all ages and it was culturally challenging. I would recommend the trip for families. The most memorable part of the holiday was camping in the desert and sleeping under the stars! Amazing! (more)Tania Knight
A great fun family adventure. Kids loved it and didn't mind the travelling...the best part was trekking with camels in the desert and camping under the stars (more)Susan Gregory
From £699 - £719 including UK flights
Sri Lanka holiday, island explorer
Most memorable was the variety of landscape in Sri Lanka, the cave temple at Damballa, the train journey from Kandy, the views from Ella, the night stay in the tree house camp in Yala national park and seeing leopards, elephants and beautiful birds on safari in the park. (more)Barbara Essam
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Sri Lanka and the tour aspect was well organised. We particularly enjoyed the variety of activities and accommodation. Best bits were the trip to the rock fortress and Yala where we saw leopards and a big black bear which apparently was very rare. (more)jude parsons
From £2400 - £2500 including UK flights
Sea kayaking holiday in Croatia
Perfect...The whole holiday was memorable. The kyaking guides were fantastic, accommodation good, food great and I never felt 'herded' around - it was really relaxing and good fun. (more)Pauline Heslop
Lovely week. The group was great with a real mix of ages and experiences. The pace of the week was just right with some pretty challenging paddles some days and really relaxing ones on others. The attitude was laid back with loose plans flexible to suit the needs of the group. (more)jane chaplin
Great fun....the most exciting parts was staying on Sipan and doing a 22k kayak into a 25 km per hour headwind (more)jane brook
From €715 excluding flights
Croatia sea kayaking holidays
Kayaking around beautiful such shores in beautiful weather - but also kayaking in strong winds and rain, which was exciting and challenging! On the second day, Amir our instructor showed us a fantastic blue lit cave that could only be reached by jumping out of the kayaks and swimming through a small entrance – lots of fun. (more)Christine Louise Angelou
Excellent holiday. Well organised, great group leader (thanks Filip!), stunning scenery, gorgeous weather, good company. Fun and active. Would recommend it. (more)Heidi Applegate
Kayaking through pristine turquoise waters and staying on idyllic islands with locals wre most memorable...Excellent. (more)Rebecca Emmett
From €485 excluding flights
Khao Sok tours, four days, Thailand
Our trip had several memorable parts...our relaxing canoe ride down the river was beautiful, our trek through the jungle was hard work but a one-off experience and our day on the lake was just amazing. (more)Gill Bunnell
The elephant ride was great, the trip out to the huts on the lake and morning 'jungle safari' really stick in my mind. These 3 days were the perfect way to see more of Thailand and were a great balance between 'active and relaxing'. (more)Eleanor Turner
The location was awesome. We loved feeling far away from city life in the treehouses of the Nature Resort and the rafthouses at Chieow Laan Lake. (more)Cindy Dorsey
From £160 - £390 excluding flights
Painting holiday in Andalucia
The painting experience and teaching was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Luisa Brenta

Meeting a wonderful group of people and being tutored by a fantastic artist was the most memorable part of the holiday.... Also loved staying in local houses and becoming part of a traditional village for a week. (more)Lorraine Rutter
From £799 excluding flights
Self guided walking holiday in France
We particularly enjoyed the convivial company at meal times and our hosts taking the time to share meals and local insight with us. Carol's cooking combined the best of local produce and traditional French cookery. (more)Elizabeth Anderson
Most memorable part of this holiday were the swaithes of wild flowers - cowslip, primrose, oxlip, violets, wild garlic. Birdsong in peaceful woodland, sometimes walking for miles without seeing anyone else. (more)John Langley
I would thoroughly recommend this holiday to anyone wanting a break from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The hosts encourage you into a very relaxed and idyllic way of life, respecting and learning about the local customs and culture. I guarantee that you will relax, unwind and not want to go home! (more)Alison Hart
From £706 - £782 excluding flights
Small group holidays to Madagascar
The most fantastic holiday we have experienced and totally different from any location we have been to. The tour company was first class in every respect...Be prepared for poverty, humble experiences, lack of electricity but don't let this put anyone off going to this wonderful country. (more)George Bannister
As I expected not 'comfortable' but an amazing experience (more)Jean Maclean
Seeing five out of six possible types of lemur in the first National Park we visited...Excellent. (more)Gill Berry

From £2150 excluding flights
Activity holiday in Montenegro
Excellent....the accommodation was lovely and we felt that we got privileged access to genuinely unknown parts of Montenegro. (more)Russell Roberts
Hard to praise it enough. It kept three teenagers completely happy which is no mean feat. It was beautiful, active, very comfortable and highly informative - what more could you want? (more)Kate Vernon-Rees

From £480 - £680 excluding flights

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
Lots of most memorables... but the ones that really stick in my mind are first spotting of a zebra in the wild,... sitting 150 feet up on the rock outcrop having a supper picnic watching the sun set sipping wine made from the monastery. (more)Suzette Lang
From NZ $4490 excluding flights
Mongolia adventure holiday
Memorable parts? Meeting the local Mongolian people. Tips? To prepare physically more for the trip as the trekking was quite challenging. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Excellent. It had a good mix of tourist activities with more non-touristy things. (more)Stephanie McDonald

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 £1771 - £2239 including UK flights
Romania adventure holiday
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 £1749 excluding flights
Alaska and Yukon classic camping tour
Memorable parts? We travelled a great distance, saw tons of great scenery and was able to do a variety of activities so I can't really say that one thing stands out however Dawson City (both times) was great. Tips? Bring a bug hat/jacket and some good bug spray. Bring a variety of warm clothes (e.g. mitts, wool hat...) even in the summer months - you never know what the temperature will be like. It really is an active tour and to be ready for this. You do no have to be an athlete... (more)Mary Ellen Ruddell
From £2999 - £3519 excluding flights
Bhutan holidays, cultural tours
My holiday was amazing the guides were so helpful and made my experience wonderful. The most memorable part of my holiday was the beautiful scenery on the treks in Bhutan and Nepal and the 51 metre Buddha high on a mountain in Thimpu is impressive and inspiring. (more)michele allix
The most memorable parts were the visits to the Dzong in Thimpu and Tiger's Nest...It was very good. The operator in Katmandu were attentive and well organised as well as very helpful people. (more)Jan Brettingham
I really enjoyed my trip and feel that travelling from Nepal allowed an excellent opportunity to visit two - so different - places. I really enjoyed both counties. In Bhutan, Punakha was a favourite place for me as it's a little more rural and remote. (more)Julia Rosenbaum
From £1105 excluding flights
South East Asia tour, Hanoi to Singapore
Snorkelling for the first time in Nha Trang (and second time in Ko Phi Phi!) was fantastic, jungle trekking in both Thailand and Malaysia was awesome...Outstanding - varied, educational and stacks of fun. (more)Matt Williams
There were so many highlights to this holiday which covered so many countries... Staying the night in a hilltribe village in northern Thailand, snorkling on the coral reefs around Ko Phi Phi, 4x4 driving, drinking tea in a tea plantation in the Cameron highlands...exploring great cities like KL and Singapore. Fantastic, but tough going at times! (more)Bridie Brittain
From £2421 - £2689 excluding flights
Cuba holiday, small group
The most memorable part of the holiday was the friendliness and openness of the people - in the street as well as ones we met more formally through homestays and tours. The music in every bar - some cheesy - some excellent. (more)David Jockelson
We had an excellent time and made some good friends. The leader was very good and did her best to advise, inform and enthuse us at every turn. She was honest, open and did her best to pass on her enthusiasm for her country, while being prepared to discuss its idiosyncrasies in an informative and thoughtful way. (more)Sarah Walker
Most memorable parts were being taught salsa, merengue and reggaeton by the locals, diving off the coast of Trinidad, having a barbeque on our own private beach and visiting our tour leader's farm and meeting his family and friends. (more)Suzy Gray
From £1008 - £1185 excluding flights
Small group camping holiday in America
Memorable parts? Each new place visited on the itinerary. The variety was brilliant. Tips? Check the age range of your fellow travellers, if you are not among the first to book. I was with an excellent group ranging from 23 to 63! Local benefits? Yes, certainly. Recycling was handled extremely well and local people were used in the one place where it was possible and mattered, i.e. Monument Valley and the Navajo Indians. Overall rating? Excellent.
