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
From 3350 including UK flights

It was excellent. I would definitely recommend this sort of tour for a first visit. We had never had a guide or arranged tour before so it really made the difference knowing that tours had been prepaid and pick ups and cars had been pre arranged. (more)Val Bodington
Both the visit to the Cu Chi tunnels and the day on the Mekong Delta was the most memorable. (more)Emma Miller

The visit to the Atacama Desert area including the high Andes was special for me, and spending time with the indigenous farmer was really interesting. (more)Dave Thalrose
We had a fantastic time. Personally, the most memorable parts of the holiday were staying with the Pewenche family who were fantastic hosts, and stargazing in the Atacama with the Lickan Antay people.

Morocco holiday, Marrakech to the Sahara
It's difficult to choose what was the most memorable part of our holiday: wandering through the colorful and lively souks of Marrakech... Riding a dromedary at sunset? Or listening to Berber music around the fire in the moonlit desert? (more)Giovanna Beber
Most memorable was seeing the beautiful scenery along the Marrakech/Zagora route, and sleeping outdoors in the desert under a moonlit sky. (more)Mohamed Karimullah
From 575 - 675 excluding flights
Tailor made tours of Oman
Driving through a Wadi with water flowing through it. Driving the sand dunes in the desert. The mountain scenery is great. (more)Adrian O Malley
The most memorable part was the surprise at arriving at the camp in the Wahiba Sands for our night of Wild Camping and instead of finding the little 2-man tent that we had expected we found a luxury tent complete with bathroom, proper beds, carpets, oriental cushions and lanterns which had been set up just for us. (more)Sally Frohlich
Driving down to Wadi Bani Awf. Awesome. Also the night in the desert where the operator found us a camp where we were completely alone, 8 km through the dunes from the main camp, itself small and remoter than the bigger camps. (more)Peta Constable
From 1760 including UK flights

Excellent, well thought out itinerary. The most memorable parts were Travelling into the jungle to stay at Abai Jungle Lodge and the river cruises. We saw wild orangutans, snakes, big spiders, Proboscis monkeys and more all in our hotel. (more)Christopher Lewis
If we had to name a specific high I think it'd have to be the private river cruises that we went on from the Abai Jungle Lodge. They were each so magical, romantic and different - I can't describe how wonderful they made us feel. But in truth the trip was packed with moments like this - hearing a turtle breath, seeing pygmy elephants up close and wild!! (more)Rob Skinner
From 1815 including UK flights

Costa Rica holidays, coast to coast
Monkeys. Saw all four species and such fun! All the wildlife was spectacular, lots of it up close and easy to see. The local wildlife guides are brilliant and everyone in the country seems to know about and care about wildlife - wonderful! (more)Dee Stephens
Macenque & Monteverde & Sarapiqui were the most memorable parts of the holiday. (more)Anton Gill
We saw monkeys in the hotel grouse, sloth and of course the scarlet macaws. We had never been to a rainforest before and could not believe how green it was. All the places we stayed at were interesting and different. (more)Barbara Dart
From 1250 - 2495 excluding flights
Costa Rica self drive holiday, natural history
Memorable parts? There were so many highlights - and part of the pleasure was the variety of different experiences as we travelled around; more like six short mini-holidays all packed together. The very best moment was kayaking in Tortuguero: just four of us and a guide exploring the rainforest by river at dawn. The cries of the howler monkeys echoed across the morning mist, and we got up close to crocodiles, turtles and incredible water birds. Priceless! Tips? Self-drive is... (more)Simon Andrewes
From 1155 excluding flights
Laos holidays, tailor made
Fabulous 10 out of 10...the best part was sailing down the Mekong River from Northern Thailand to Luang Prabang. (more)Sarah blagdon

Every day of my trip brought something interesting and memorable. Cuba is a beautiful country rich in natural assets, history and culture with lovely, helpful people keen to show you all their country has to offer. (more)Sue Wailoo
It was our home whilst we were there - in each casa - we were made to feel we were really at home whilst still being free to come and go wherever and whenever we wanted. (more)Charles Butler
Would do it again in a heartbeat...Visit and stay in Old Havana, and certain dives at Isla de La Juventud. (more)Samuel Bjorklund
From 640 excluding flights
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 1995 including UK flights
History, culture & wildlife of India holiday
The most exciting part was not on the original programme. We asked Rajat to give us somewhat more nature and less culture. He arranged for us to spend a day and two nights in a resort on the Kabini Lake, across from the Nagarhole National Park. On a boat safari at dusk, amidst myriad birds and beasts, we saw a male tiger emerging muddily from the river, slinking into the jungle. (more)Robin Fox
Excellent, we enjoyed it all. The two home stays were an amazing part of our trip. Take the plunge and travel on an overnight train with shared accommodation. It's a great experience. (more)Caroline Powell
