Family holiday in Thailand
Far beyond my expectations. Outstanding....Many memorable moments: from the home stay at Bangkok, to the food experiences, from the island hopping to the emerald pool. Maybe the best part was the people part: guides, drivers, locals were all very super helpful and kind. (more)Michael Fattore
We all thoroughly enjoyed every part of the experience and loved the intensity and variety of the well organised and full itinerary. (more)Caren Matthews-Lane
Most memorable were the palaces and temples of Bangkok, closely followed by the jungle walk! Best yet for all of us. (more)Barbara Chadband

Catalonia family self guided cycling holiday, Spain
Wonderful holiday for active people who love nature and do not like tourist traps. (more)Dorine van der Vloodt
The most memorable part of the holiday was the 30k mountain bike ride that took in parts of the local scenery that would have remained unseen without the guidance and assistance of our host. (more)Mark Burberry
From €288.50 - €399.50 excluding flights
Altiplano de Granada activity holiday, Spain
We loved the amazing views in all directions from, the great range of exciting activities organised by the owners, who were fantastic hosts and so friendly and helpful, and the total relaxation of really getting away from it all. (more)Lucy Schonberger

Self drive Cuba family holiday
The best part was Havana. Everything about Havana, the tour in the old American car was great but we loved just wondering around. (more)Jo McKeown
Cuba is amazing, I was delighted that I booked through responsible travel. (more)helen lowe
The most memorable will be all of the Vintage Cars running around all of Cuba; the pony and carts, bicycle taxi's, pedestrians and horses coming towards you on the wrong side of the road... (more)Elayne Farmer
From €1798 - €3779 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
From £1075 - £1095 excluding flights
Exciting family holiday in China
Memorable parts? The itinerary planned by our operator worked out beautifully for my family of 8. A couple of the guides, especially Johnnie in Beijing and Susan in chengdu engaged with the children and helped make our time in those cities very enjoyable. we loved that logistics were taken care of by our guides n drivers. The children loved the ice skating, the time at the Great Wall, learning to cook their own dishes, spending Christmas day at the panda research center, biking in town... (more)Kristin Baker
From £1320 - £1380 excluding flights
Ethiopia family holiday
The spectacular mountain scenery was something unexpected and awesome. The people were very friendly. Labilela rock hewn churches and the history was very interesting and fascinating. (more)Nicola de Jager
I am not sure what was the most memorable or exciting part of our holiday - for the three of us it would be different things. I think for my daughter it would be the fact that a leopard visited our camp in the Simien Mountains...I would say it was a truly amazing time. (more)Sophie Brinckman
As an introduction to the African continent, for me it was the best experience imaginable! (more)Julie Stanhope
From £1632 excluding flights
Cycling holiday in Catalonia, Spain
Great. Would definitely now consider another cycling holiday with this company. We enjoyed the experience of cycling through the countryside and to the beach then stopping off for lunch and a beer. We saw so many lovely places. (more)patricia houston
We all enjoyed it immensely...I think seeing the first medieval village and cycling through the deep countryside were the most satisfying experiences. For others it might have been stopping for the first beer at a village café. Or the fantastic burger and chips in Ripli when we were all tired and hungry. (more)John Lowdon
Very good..Cycling through the countryside and to and from the beach. Also the food was fantastic. (more)Wendy McCaffer
From €695 - €755 excluding flights
Catalonia family activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? Staying in a welcoming and comfortable hotel in a beautiful part of Spain, with delightful hosts, and masses of available activities. Tips? Stay at here, it's great. Local benefits? Yes, all of the above. We booked several activities with local companies and ate in local restaurants. We were able to travel extensively by bike rather than car. Overall rating? Excellent. We have all returned fit, healthy and happy. (more)Mary Anne Roffs
From €720 excluding flights
Sri Lanka family holiday
Fantastic (more)Sally-Anne Wilson
The wonderful food and gentle people! (more)Colette Carbonell
From £1255 - £1825 excluding flights
Exciting family holiday in Jordan
Memorable parts? All of it! We all had our personal highlights though. Hannah (11) loved swimming in the Dead Sea, Ciaran (15) loved climbing, the cycle ride and the history in Jerash, Little Petra and Petra, Luke (51) loved the camel journey, Jo (50) loved sitting round the fire with the Bedouins and trading gifts and tea with the Bedouin women in their tents. Tips? Be flexible, open minded and be up for the challenge! Local benefits? Yes, we came away feeling that the... (more)Jo Tunmer
From £970 - £990 excluding flights
Kerala family activity holiday, India
There are so many great memories of the holiday, that will live long in the memory. In no particular order: The smile on the face of my daughter as the helped wash an elephant in the river, the scenery around Munnar was beautiful, the homestay at Dewalokam was just great - jumping and swimming in the river... (more)Philip Hesketh
A brilliant first time experience of India for a family. Safe but still experiencing the full life of India. (more)Sarah Griffin
We were looked after so well and experienced warm hospitality, delicious food and some fascinating day trips. (more)Jenny Wells
From £980 excluding flights
Kerala backwater holiday, India
This holiday was absolutely fantastic in every way. Possibly the best family holiday that we have ever had. (more)Louise Hoult
Visiting around Munnar with time to see nature and lots of bird life, made more memorable as we had a knowledgeable driver who showed us many birds. The Kathakali Dance event in Cochi gave an interesting insight into the historical parts of the area and was well worth seeing all the make up as well as the dancing. (more)Andrew Patrick
It was all wonderful but I think the time we enjoyed most was at Vanilla County, Teekoy. We found Baby Matthew and Rani to be the most wonderful hosts and their staff were lovely. (more)Linda Crowder
From £550 excluding flights
Family adventure holiday in Thailand
Wonderful. Travelling in a small group as a family with such a dedicated guide allowed us to see more & interact more. We were able to eat at small road side cafes and at the Phetchaburi night market, and wander around the Sangklaburi floating houses (more)Simon Daniels
We all have different highlights, but generally agree that the day we had a boat trip down the Maekok river, followed by an elephant ride where we got to ride the elephants like a mahout and then spent a night in an Akha village, was our most memorable day. (more)Taru Jones
Most memorable was walking in the rainforest following local guide in his shower cap and Wellingtons and meeting the jungle dwelling Sakai, and swimming in pool at top of huge and remote waterfall. (more)Jane Giles
From £1750 - £1950 including UK flights
Oman family holiday, tailor made
Memorable parts? There were many memorable bits. Watching the turtles return to sea while the sun was rising, sledging down the dunes with my children, swimming in the Wadi's. Not sure I can choose only one. Tips? Don't try and squeeze too much into it. There are some lovely hotels and locations but we often found ourselves arriving just at or after sunset and leaving early the next morning. Local benefits? We were aware of the conservation side of things but not really... (more)Jane Skinner
From £5920 excluding flights
Self drive family holiday in Finland
Memorable parts? Far too many to mention personally - running the Helsinki Marathon (fantastic scenic route!) at the end of the trip was a personal highlight but aside from this I also enjoyed the beautiful scenery of northern Finland and great accommodation throughout the trip. My 4 year old son enjoyed it all too but his favourites were the Angry Birds Kids Theme Park, Husky Sledding, meeting Santa Claus, feeding reindeers, running the Helsinki Mini Marathon for kids, riding the trams... (more)Richard Mayneord
From €610 - €800 excluding flights
Thailand family holidays
Amazing vacation. Such a great experience filled with memories that are sure to last a lifetime! (more)Sumi Mazzarolo
We had the most amazing holiday and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the "local" experiences we had, from giving alms to the monks to riding through rice fields on bikes. We really enjoyed meeting real Thai people and seeing different sides to Thailand. (more)Rayner McKenzie
From £1450 - £1650 excluding flights
Family luxury safari & beach holiday, South Africa & Mozambique
Do it. It was the best experience for us all including our 5 and 8 year olds. (more)Debbie Sermon
Amazing, could not have been better....We loved every second of our holiday, but the things that most stand out are our Safari at Tanda Tula, the beauty of Plettenberg Bay and the amazing people at Kanonkop House in Knysna. (more)Laura Beccaria
From £3235 - £5000 including UK flights
Family holiday in Romania, tailor made
Memorable parts? To quote my son, when asked the same question... I liked all of it!! However, if I have to chose particular moments... Getting a feel for the rhythm of village life on a glorious spring morning in Biertan, taking an evening stroll alongside the locals in Brasov and making it to the top of the 1426 steps (my younger son counted!) to see the view from Poienari Citadel. Tips? We went to Romania in Spring and I would recommend going there at Easter (which is a little... (more)Jo Murray
From €649 - €1159 excluding flights
Family holiday in Burma
Memorable parts? It was all great. Temples in Bagan, boat ride and views over Lake Inle. Tips? Much of Myanmar great for family travelling. Comfortable hotels, great food. Warm welcome. Train from Yangon to Bagan bumpy but really fun! Local benefits? Yes. But would value more information particularly with regard to hotels. Overall rating? Brilliant. Guides and our agent were really very very good. Logistics perfect. (more)Joanna Macrae
From £1025 - £1450 excluding flights
Borneo family holiday, wildlife and beaches
Memorable parts? Staying at the Kinabatangan River - the wildlife was amazing and the people were wonderful, so friendly and welcoming. We saw several different types of monkeys and birds, pygmy elephants and crocodiles and the kids loved it. Tips? I wouldn't necessarily recommend staying in the longhouse at this stage, we didn't feel it was very authentic. We would highly recommend hiring an English speaking guide. It really helped us to identify the different wildlife, he took... (more)Lucinda Townsley
From £1850 excluding flights
Borneo family holiday, tailor made
The punctuality and friendliness of all the operators was extraordinary. There was not a bad word to say about any of them. (more)Roderick Stevens
There were lots of highlights but we particularly enjoyed seeing the elephants swimming across the river and also releasing turtle hatchlings back into the sea. We also loved Abai jungle lodge. Beautiful scenery and wonderful staff. (more)Andrea Gauntlett
From £2695 including UK flights
Horse riding holiday in Romania
I enjoyed my holiday. I travelled on my own and was part of a very friendly group. The horses were lovely, the food excellent and the setting fantastically beautiful and unspoilt. (more)Lorna Newbrook
Galloping full tilt over the open grasslands of Transylvania was most memorable...Excellent - with a real sense of achievement for having stood the distance! (more)Jane Henderson
Excellent... Riding in the snow, skiiing, visit to Bran castle were most memorable. (more)Anna Faure
From €800 - €1580 excluding flights
Tailor made Morocco family adventure holiday
We really enjoyed the whole experience, and it was excellent with three teenagers too. They enjoyed all the different aspects of our trip and we feel that they learnt about the Moroccan culture along the way. Highly recommended. (more)Charles Redfern
The holiday was really nice, all of it, but probably the best memory has been staying in Denmate and walking around those hills/mountains. It was just amazing, maybe because it was not peak season we were alone and loved every minute of it! (more)Maria Verdecchia
We loved the Sahara Desert, the High Atlas Mountains, the zest of Marrakesh city, and our cooking class. Our children loved the sand boarding, decorating pottery with henna, the music and jokes around the campfire and the unique opportunity to actually collect fossils from a hill range. (more)Fiona Milligan
From £600 excluding flights
Malaysia family holiday
Definitely memorable, a last family holiday my teenager's will remember forever. It really opened their eyes to different cultures and my daughter is more confident about the possibility of backpacking in her uni years. (more)Karen Wright
We swam with sea turtles, sharks, rays and the most amazing range of tropical fish. At Banding Island we also saw a rare Asian elephant in the wild. But the whole holiday was great - a huge range of sights and experiences crammed into a very short time. (more)Julie Martin
Highlights include tracking gibbons and overnight camp in the rainforest, some great food, swimming with a giant turtle and snorkelling around the reef. ALL the wildlife was great. People were lovely. (more)Laura Brodrick
From £2275 - £2475 including UK flights
Family holiday to Thailand, jungles and islands
As our first holiday in Asia it was fantastic. Our guide was so friendly and helpful we really didn't have to do anything but have a great time! (more)Alison Hatchman
10 out of 10...my favourite parts were tube riding on the river and swimming in the beautiful clear water in Koh Talu (more)Francoise Harris
The three days trekking in Nan province was certainly the most memorable part of our holiday. Highlights included the market across the street from the hotel selling a wide range of "interesting" live produce. (more)John Caswell
From £1300 excluding flights
