Tailor made holiday in Peru
Memorable parts? EVERYTHING - it was just great! Tips? To inform themselves very early (6 month before booking) to get the most out of it. We therefore had the best holidays ever and people we met on our tour were just jealouse, because we could do all the cool stuff (we had organised the permits for Huayna Picchu, the Trek to Huchuy Qosqo etc.) Local benefits? Yes I do Overall rating? Great! (more)Barbara Buchegger

Nature tour in New Zealand
Memorable parts? The nature trips, guides and information for the whole trip. The open roads with no cars in sight sometimes for many many miles.

The people and their helpfulness always willing to give advice and make sure you have a good as experience as was possible whatever it was you were looking for. The organisation of our entire trip was seamless and all arragements went like clockwork. Tips? Try it, if its scenery... (more)Christine Breden

This was definitely a 4-star holiday!...By far the most memorable part for us was the houseboat cruise on the back waters.

Tailor made holiday in Brazil
We had a morning horse riding down a flooded area at the start, with our feet touching the water, and then across more open country; the wild flowers and birds were amazing. A 5.30 am canoe trip which was magical, so quiet and peaceful, seeing the beauty of the sun rising and hearing the early morning bird song; the canoe being so quiet we were able to get very close to birds before they flew. Later that afternoon we visited a fishing village down the river and were invited into their one room house... (more)Harvey Bromley

Belize holidays, tailor made
Brilliant. My husband and I both thought it one of the best holidays we'd been on. Superb destination. Fantastic people. Great culture. Stupendous wildlife. I think I've overdosed on superlatives. I'm not giving 5 stars because I haven't finished exploring yet! (more)Joanna Lloyd

From £1335 excluding flights
Tailor made Rajasthan tour, India
Memorable parts? History and culture. I enjoyed the amazing hotels we stayed in that were beautiful locations and historical. Tips? Due to distance between locations, ensure there are two nights at every hotel. There is significant time spent driving (in a car) between each location. If flying from Delhi during December / January be aware of fog delaying / cancelling flights. Local benefits? We visited local communities (e.g. Bishnoi, Samode) but not sure how it benefitted... (more)Tracey Warren

Kerala luxury holiday, India
Memorable parts? The homestays were particularly enjoyable, allowing us some insight into everyday life in a way that can be difficult to experience as a tourist. Our hosts were warm, genuine, entertaining and thoughtful people who put a great deal of effort into ensuring that we got the best from our trip. It felt very sad each time we had to move on! Also, Keralan food is wonderful, though 3 home cooked meals a day can have a serious impact on your waistline (perhaps we should have refused... (more)Liz Livingstone
From £2039 excluding flights

From £2980 including UK flights

The holiday company provides you with many options so take advantage of their services. They are also on standby should you need help, want to make... (more)Joanna Drzewieniecki
From US $620 - US $2665 excluding flights
Vietnam family holiday
Memorable parts? Walking in the hills in North Vetnam, really connected with the people off the tourist trails. Stunning. Tips? Be prepared for simple accommodation and reasonably hard walking. Although not very long walks, about 15km in a day it can get quite hot and hilly. Wish I was fitter. Local benefits? Yes, staying with families and local businesses is very important to the development of the tourist industry. Always ate in small restaurants. Overall rating? Very... (more)Angela Reid
