Most memorable was being so close to wild animals on the game drives at Elephant Plains...Fantastic! (more)Yvonne Chapman
The Drakensberg mountains and Didima camp at Cathedral Peak provided a magical start to the holiday, with stunning scenery, fantastic hiking and lovely accommodation; we could easily have stayed much longer there. (more)Barbara Sykes

The time spent on Chumbe was so relaxing in on idyllic paradise Island & with it's eco ethics it is a place with a truly great purpose. (more)Becky Jones
Everywhere we looked there were birds: on the water's edge, in the air, perched in trees. Crocodiles slipped into the water and there were pods of hippos, plus giraffes, elephants, buffalo and impala. (more)Joanne Davenport
For me most memorable was arriving at Mwagusi and seeing elephant, giraffes and abundant wildlife en route from airstrip to camp; for Toby it was seeing a leopard resting in a tree (Ruaha). (more)Claire Roberts

Okavango Delta tailor made safari in Botswana
Memorable parts? Up close and personal with the wild animals on safari Tips? Can be cold on the morning game drives and take DEET insect repellent. Don't have too high expectations of animal sightings and then everything is a real treat. Local benefits? Very eco friendly, solar power and recycling etc. All staff were locals and seemed to really enjoy their work. Overall rating? Excellent. Not cheap but we didn't need to spend any extra money except for tips and... (more)Janet Gaten
From £3200 - £5950 excluding flights
Vietnam tailor made holidays
We enjoyed it all - wonderful food, pleasant, well informed guides, new experiences. Hanoi is a beautiful and really buzzing city; we'd love to go back. Mai Chau valley is beautiful and developing fast; Halong is like visiting another planet - so strange, so awe-inspiring. (more)Patricia Stoat
It was a great holiday, and it is very hard to single out one thing. Our trip to the northeast was one of the best bits (I was honoured to be invited to join the other giggling grannies on the floor of the Tay house - if only I was as limber as they are!). (more)Margery Nzerem
From £2980 including UK flights
Kerala holiday, Malabar Adventure
Memorable parts? The food and the beds Tips? No alcohol on first day of month and every Sunday. Internal flights have much lower baggage allowance than international flights Local benefits? Perhaps Overall rating? I feel good after it. (more)Marion Shepherd
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
From £1650 excluding flights

Ecuador holiday, Quito & the Galapagos
Memorable parts? Swimming with sea-lions in the Galapagos. Tips? Don't delay! There wasn't anything I could fault. Local benefits? Yes - local guides were used in each city and also for the boat crew. The boat was classified as an eco-catamaran. Overall rating? Excellent. Very sad to have had to leave. (more)Sarah Hext
From £2200 excluding flights
Tanzania wildlife, people and beach holiday
A marvellous holiday that exceeded expectations in all areas! Most memorable was the incredible wildlife in both Selous and Ruaha national Parks, plus the coral reefs we saw around Mafia Island - truly spectacular. Lack of other tourists was a major plus. (more)Liz Taylor
Everything was wonderful. The setting perhaps captures most of it - staying in beautiful places in the midst of the national parks and conservation areas, where the animals were everywhere (from in camp to close by during game drives). (more)Laura Dukess
We were lucky enough to see a cheetah hunting a gazelle. Unfortunately the cheetah was unsuccessful but it made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and you really felt the thrill of the chase watching the animals in action. (more)Ilana Howley
From £4170 excluding flights
Central India holiday, culture and wildlife
It was the first time we had travelled to India and we were on a mission to see the wild side of India. Our first tiger encounter is something we will never forget It was amazing (more)Louise Knop
5 stars all round. The holiday was so unique .......... busy, relaxing, fun, massively interesting and a huge privilege. (more)Claire Martin
Highlights have to be the Puri ceremony at the temple at Bhoramdeo (not for the feint hearted). The abundance of amazing home cooked, freshly prepared, organic food. The local market at Neur, which was beautifully vibrant and colourful. The train ride was a great experience...it was all fabulous! (more)Rosy Everitt
From £2350 excluding flights
Self drive holiday in Costa Rica
Fantastic holiday and a slice of paradise! Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! (more)Charles Czajkowski
I think the most memorable for the adults was staying on the Osa Peninsula which was perfect in every imaginable way for us. The kids liked that too but would say that learning to surf in Uvita or white-water rafting were most memorable. (more)Anne Tutt
It was all memorable but probably the two things which stand out were the tour to Torteguero and the one day trip to the Corcavado national park from Uvita. (more)Margaret Everall
From £1950 - £2060 excluding flights
Shikoku island tailor made holiday, Japan
Memorable parts? "Art Island" of Naoshima; Osaka Tips? Do it. Great travel agency, excellent itinerary and issuing of tickets, accommodation arrangements, etc; helpful guide books. Local benefits? Not really, except that we spent lots of money which hopefully helped the local economies. Overall rating? Excellent (more)Dave Burrows
From £1790 excluding flights
Madagascar wildlife holiday
A fabulous destination which requires time, patience and determination to achieve the best experience. Probably the best wildlife experience outside East Africa or Galapagos. (more)Clive Porter
It was a unique experience which we thoroughly enjoyed (more)Tui Couch
From £3990 - £4560 including UK flights
Ecuador activity holiday
Memorable parts? Wildlife - birds, dolphins, turtles, snakes, Jesus lizard. Tips? At altitude, acclimatise. In sea, be careful of sting rays - take copies of documents. Local benefits? Yes-very much. A proportion of money goes directly to conservation. Also, much of my trip was eco tourist focused and I ate and spent locally. Overall rating? Brilliant - an unexpected bonus was the social democratic ideas in Ecuador-they can teach us a lot. Ecuador is incredibly diverse,... (more)Phil Madden
From £796 excluding flights
Zambia safari in South Luangwa
The most memorable part was when we were driving up a rocky dry river to see white rhinos and when they smelled/heard us and started coming towards us, realized they could be a lot faster than us on this terrain. (more)Sven Jeanrenaud
The most exciting was the gorge swing & white river rafting in Victoria Falls as well as the night game drives following lions stalking prey in the Okavango. (more)Jean Pierre Kruger
From £3220 excluding flights

Kilimanjaro climb, Machame Route
Memorable parts? The joy and relief of reaching the top of kili, timed to perfection as the sun broke through the horizon. Tips? If you want a challenge this is the trip for you and do the 7 day your body will thank you for it. Local benefits? Yes, we brought money and employment to the area, the mountain set up was great, the only visible sign is where people had left rubbish on route. (more)Daniel Waller
From £1450 excluding flights
Peru tailor made holiday, Machu Picchu & Tambopata
Memorable parts? Taking boat trips on the side tributaries of the Amazon! We loved seeing all the animals. Tips? Allow more time at the Ankatera Maccu Picchu Hotel. There is a lot to do there and we didn't allow any time there (except for seeing the ruins). Local benefits? The Amazon portion of our trip benefited local villages and supported conservation of primates. The time in the Sacred Valley definitely benefited local cooperatives and individuals. Overall rating? 9/10 (more)Nadia Al-Alawi
From £2000 excluding flights

Do it! Money well spent... (more)Katrin Nyman Metcalf
From £6555 including UK flights

Family luxury safari & beach holiday, South Africa & Mozambique
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? Arrange your activities prior to travelling, especially Cape Town as we had trouble getting to the main attractions. Local benefits? Yes, it was lovely to see in this in all the guest houses we stayed in. Overall rating? Amazing, could not have been better. (more)Laura Beccaria
From £3235 - £5000 including UK flights
