A bit disappointing really
South India by rail holiday
From
£2,134
excluding flights
The diversity between the different hotels/resorts/homestays. We were excited over a lot of things, cultural, historical places and the people we met. The mix between interesting places and relaxing places. (more)Gustav Jagner
We very much enjoyed this holiday, completely met and often exceeded our expectations. (more)Carole Noble
An amazing way to get an insight into the many sides of India. Trains are a brilliant way to see the countryside and talk to Indian people. The tour company was the most helpful travel company I have ever dealt with and I highly recommend using them. (more)David Jelley
Trinidad and Tobago bird watching holidays
From
£2,795
including UK flights

Our expectations for this bird watching holiday were fully realised. The birds were wonderful, the guides excellent. (more)Brian Good
Burgundy self guided cycling tours, France
From
€890
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Cycling at our own pace through stunning, varied countryside and finding places that we would have missed in a car. Tips? Be prepared for more than just undulating vineyards - there are some hills and you should have a decent level of fitness. (However, we managed and are in our more senior years!) The hire bikes were excellent, sturdy machines and there was technical back-up if required. (Luckily not needed! ) Local benefits? Staying at comfortable,... (more)Neil Crawley

Alentejo & Algarve self guided cycling holiday, Portugal
From
€600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Discovering the Vicentina coast and its marvellous beaches and blue sea for the first time. Marvellous landscape, kindness and smiles of the people met all along the trip. Spotless accommodation, very charming small hotels. Tips? Local benefits? Yes, it did because we were always staying at small hotels run by Portuguese - in most of the places, they could hardly speak in English or French. Overall rating? Perfect, even better than expected (more)Muriel Deladrière
Wildlife photography holiday in India
From
£710
excluding flights

Very relaxing break...Yoga outside on the terrace and use of the beautiful private pool (more)carlene rowson
I enjoyed all the week. We loved meeting all the people on our course and the parallel one. It was great having a breakfast waiting for us. (more)Sue Humble
Fantastic....Casperia is very beautiful and so are the people. I can't say one thing in particular was exciting. I just find Casperia enchanting. The staff were more like friends. They were very lovely happy to help people. X (more)Ellen Kay
South Indian food tour, Kerala
From
£1,473
excluding flights
Memorable parts? As this was our first time in India, all the places were memorable for their own reasons. Even our first experience of the traffic was 'exciting' We had an excellent driver/guide who was able to offer a lot of help. Tips? This is also the first time of staying in different places. With hindsight I would have dramatically reduced the amount of clothes we took and used the laundry service. Local benefits? Absolutely. We knew the homestays supported local... (more)Karen Dickinson

From
£559

The whole holiday was extremely memorable. Working with Chrissy and Alex who run the Lifechange programme in Chiang Mai was the best gift that I have ever given myself. (more)Claire Clottey
Rajasthan art history & architecture tour
From
£580
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were two big parts of our holiday: the culture and the nature. From a cultural perspective, we learned so much about the history of various cultures within Rajasthan. The forts we visited (Mehrangarh, Roopangarh, Amber) were amazing, but the highlight was definitely staying at Jog Niwas, where our host/organizer Shanane Davis lives. She taught us so much about patronage and connoisseurship, sharing with our whole family a remarkably vast knowledge about textiles, art,... (more)Robert Macauley
Yoga and relaxation holiday, Scotland
From
£895
excluding flights
We met people sharing their skills in felting, yoga, music, and knowledge of the local area. All food was either grown, foraged, or purchased locally and cooked from scratch, all sustainable and tasty too. Excellent, would always recommend (more)Nicky Arifi
It was really enjoyable and I would do it again. Rosie and her team are welcoming, thoughtful and talented and the excursions, activities and meals they provided were clearly planned and prepared meticulously and delivered with charm, good humour and élan. (more)M Mannas
Fantastic. I was lucky to have four other great women in the holiday too, but Rosie and Joanie made it wonderful. When ever I talk about my week with them I literally find my shoulders dropping and my speech slowing down, and the glow returning. (more)Lara Gisborne
Life coaching and cultural holiday in Chiang Mai
From
£745
excluding flights
Excellent. This was a memorable (and life changing!) experience. The most memorable part was the actual one to one life coaching sessions and being able to do these at a comfortable and relaxing hotel. (more)Karen Gorham
The most memorable part of the holiday was the life coaching that we had and, a fantastic highlight, the excursion to the elephant sanctuary. (more)Kirsten Stolz

Just being there with intelligent, congenial people who were all involved in learning something unusual and useful from a wonderful young woman...It was terrific! (more)Norma Schneider
Wolverine photography tour in Finland
From
£1,495
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing a total of 5 different wolverines up close in a few hours - amazing when there are only about 150 in the whole country. Tips? Take plenty of memory cards because you'll need them if you are as lucky as I was. Local benefits? Yes - the money went towards the cost of providing a feeding station throughout the year. This feeding station not only supported wolverines but also bears, ravens and other wildlife. Overall rating? Fantastic - the wildlife... (more)Christine Cheney
Slovenia and Croatia photography tour
From
€2,950
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Our local guide, Luka, was able to take us to places that were not on the usual tourist routes or at times when each place was at its best, as a result we saw much more than we would have done if we had travelled there on our own. Tips? This was tailored to our specific requirements, the tour company were very flexible, changing plans as we went along due to weather conditions, individual requests etc. So I think if you are flexible to try new experiences and change... (more)Amanda Moon
Kerala Ayurveda & Yoga holiday, India
From
£900
excluding flights
Jos arranged a trip of a lifetime for me and I would recommend it to all other independent travellers heading to Kerala. So much better than staying in bland, air conditioned (non spicy) tourist hotels! (more)Philippa Rimell
Arriving to the homestay and the wonderful setting of the bungalow, was breathtaking, it's so peaceful, and Lamy's cooking is lovely. (more)Maria Arbelaez
I loved the canoe ride on the backwaters. I also loved the hike with the naturalist. It was beautiful and he was completely fabulous. (more)Emily Blackburn
Greece bird watching holiday, Lake Kerkini
From
€500
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The trip as a whole was memorable: well organized and all the expectations were met! Travelling around the lake with the good guide and the nice boat trip to check out the pelicans was an exciting experience Tips? Even though the trip was perfect in all ways the experience can be even better when you manage to hit the exact bird migration peak (Spring time). Local benefits? The holiday had a 'local' feel and it gave me a nice experience to talk to the local... (more)Wilco Veldhuizen
Papua New Guinea sea kayaking holiday
From
£2,125
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The people in the Tigak region were universally charming and friendly and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and that our needs were met. It was a real plesure to visit a country where there are so few tourists and made to feel so welcome. Tips? Be aware that you actually only kayak for 4 of the 9 days. Pack plenty of mosquito repellant. Local benefits? Very much so. Probably the most enjoyable aspect of the whole trip was the fact... (more)Jane Brook
