Laos adventure holiday, Bangkok to Vang Vieng
5*++++++++ It was absolutely superb! The operator may be a small company but it's dedication to providing the best service and most rounded and authentic personal experience of the country meant that I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. (more)Alice Ross
This trip was an amazing introduction to southeast Asia for me. I felt that my experience of Thailand and Laos was enhanced by this trip...Trekking throughout the north of Laos was amazing. We had a wonderful guide that was proud to show of his country, people, food, history and culture's. (more)Amy Worthington
From £1775 excluding flights
Indochina small group overland tour
Memorable parts? Gosh! All of it! It was an amazing 40 day adventure but I particularly enjoyed watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia, kayaking around Halong Bay in Vietnam and the stunning scenery of Laos and in particular watching the sun set over the Mekong River in Luang Prabang. Tips? We were constantly on the move, which was very exhausting and at the end of the Vietnam trip (the 40 day Indochina adventure was actually 3 separate tours which I did not realise and...

From £1815 - £1870 excluding flights
Vietnam to Thailand, small group holiday
Memorable parts? All the tour has been exciting. Tips? Arrival in Saigon without any city visit is not so useful and could be avoided. Local benefits? Absolutely yes. Overall rating? (more)Terry Basilico
From £489 - £660 excluding flights
Thailand holiday, Northern Mountains, Southern Beaches
Imaginatively devised, well planned and executed. The best parts were the visit to the Sakai tribe, Sukhotai World Heritage Site, the longboat trip down the Kok River & the trek to the Northern hill tribes. (more)Charles Moberly

From £2880 - £3100 including UK flights
Indochina tours
Very good...Walking the Fitzroy track in Patagonia was the most memorable part (more)Carol McKearney
Laos is beautiful and the people are gentle and kind. Vietnam is crazy, hectic with stunning beaches and Halong Bay, Wow...Excellent. (more)Anne Honeyball
was one of the best trips I have ever done. We experienced all kinds of travel, visited many amazing sites and learned more in one month than most people do in a lifetime. The most memorable part was the homestay where we experienced what life really is for the locals who were so welcoming and friendly to us. (more)Sarah Beddow
From £1696 - £2350 excluding flights

Small group cooking holiday in Thailand
I loved the Central Plains homestay, after Bangkok it was amazingly beautiful and peaceful. All the cooking schools were so beautiful and peaceful, and the food was amazing! (more)Suzanne Smith
The most memorable part of the holiday was definitely the cooking ... and all the eating. Swimming in the Andaman sea was also a real highlight. (more)Shelley Kennedy
The cooking and the eating were the most memorable! Fabulous. (more)Stacey Cooper
From £2225 including UK flights
Budget Thailand holiday, a taste of Thailand
Memorable parts? I enjoyed so many things about my holiday, I had a truly fantastic time but if I had to choose I would say the hill-tribe trek, that was a great experience for many reasons, I especially loved seeing the tribes & the breath-taking landscape it was unbelievable I thought, a special experience. Tips? To travel as lightly as possible during the hill-tribe trek as it can be rather demanding especially the first day & make sure you have the correct footwear. Be prepared... (more)Gary Remekie
From £475 - £520 excluding flights
Timeless Thailand holiday
The temples in Angkor Wat / Siem Reap were incredible. The roads in Cambodia were pretty memorable as well [though for a completely different reason!]. (more)Candy Owens
Great country, fantastic guide, very friendly and welcoming local people. Would book another trip with same company but especially Thailand if I could get the same guide as she really helped the group come together and made sure everything went as smoothly and was as much fun as possible. (more)Louise Massen
From £890 - £1015 excluding flights
Thailand tour, jungles and islands
Too many exciting experiences to recount. However we loved the alternative accommodation in the lodges - made a refreshing change from the usual soulless 5 star hotels. (more)Helen Quayle
The most memorable parts were ...elephant ride in Jungle, boat trip snorkelling in Khoa Sok and getting absolutely soaked in a sudden monsoon downpour in the rain forest! (more)Michael Potter
The day spent boating on the Lake in Khao Sok National Park was wonderful; we had sunshine for most of the day and it was simply spectacular. Swimming and snorkelling off Koh Lanta was wonderful. Walking the Death Railway was very moving, a good trek and we learned a lot. (more)Marian and Richard Beaver
From £2330 - £2450 including UK flights
Thailand activity holiday, bike, hike & raft
Memorable parts? The first village stay on the hill tribe trek - we were the first group to stay in this village, and the kids were so excited to see us that I think we became a free babysitting service to the whole village for the entire night! Tips? Be prepared to 'rough it' and bring a sense of adventure with you. Many of the nights accommodation involve some form of shared accommodation with the whole group - think home stays, bamboo huts when trekking, house boats, and sleeper... (more)Hannah Gausden
From £753 - £970 excluding flights
Northern Thailand family holiday
Memorable parts? What we liked the most was the variation in the program - culture - nature - sports (could have been little bit more) - homestay - and definitely NOT to forget the Thai cooking!! People were extremely friendly. We definitely also enjoyed the busy life in Bangkok next to the quietness of the rafthouses - the serenity of foodgiving to the monks - the fireflies at night .... Tips? Do not take too much luggage with you! There are opportunities to get your laundry done... (more)Sabine Callens
From £1696 - £2320 including UK flights
Photography tour in Laos & Thailand
Memorable parts? Almost too many to recount! The rice terraces at sunset and dawn, the hike through Tiger Leaping Gorge, the Stone Forest, the lake and mountains and pagodas at Dali, the Jade Dragon Mountain at Lijiang, Shangri-La, the markets and ethnic minorities.... Tips? Take some dollars, go (unlike locals) between Nov and April - we had superb weather; take some warm clothing for the Tibetan plateau; take plenty of film/memory cards! Local benefits? Very much so. We... (more)John deason
From £995 excluding flights
Cycling holiday to Indochina and Angkor Wat
Excellent - thank you very much. All provisions and services were provided by locals and the relationship the guide had with them was obviously due to good relationships in place. (more)Ian MacEachern
I really enjoyed the experince. Getting to see three countries off the beaten track was an experience and we were all the time active on the holiday (more)Tom Mc Conalogue
Cycling in Thailand was the most memorable part. (more)Fon Atang
From £2079 - £2499 including UK flights
Thailand activity holiday
Memorable parts? Trekking in the hill area around Chang Mai, and staying in the tree house. The kayaking from beautiful beaches and the many historical buildings were also very memorable Tips? Definitely take a rucksack. For those who didn't it was a hassle. We did not really need water bottles as water provision was excellent Local benefits? Yes, especially in the less traditionally tourist areas. This was less soon the beach areas where tourism seemed more well established. Overall... (more)Ruth Leese
From £1089 excluding flights
Thailand, Laos and Cambodia holiday
Memorable parts? The train Journey from Bangkok, the days on the Mekong and the guided tour of Bangkok. Tips? There are not too many high spots on this holiday, as it misses out the main sights. This is a rather low key trip and some of it is very beautiful. It does take you to less visited areas. Prepare for two full days of travelling at the end to get to Phenom Phen. Local benefits? Definitely relations with local people were respectful and brought benefits to them. Overall... (more)Lesley Holly
From £2310 - £2510 including UK flights
Thailand family adventure holiday on the River Kwai
Memorable parts? We've decided that there were higher points, like elephants, tuc-tucs and boat trips but that the whole thing merged into one great experience. Tips? First, look at your needs. There's a great variety of opportunities, more than most other holiday firms. For this experience pick the one appropriate to your family. in our case, for families with older teenagers. Then just turn up, be prepared to join in and go with the flow. Local benefits? We certainly provided... (more)Robert Brown
From £1868 - £1945 including UK flights
Thailand wildlife & beach holiday
It was all memorable and all locations were different. That was the purpose of booking a variety of areas. That said, we went to see wildlife and this criteria was mostly ticked and very memorable. (more)Jan Jupp
Volunteering at the orphanage - it was just an unforgettable experience, there are no words to describe it...you have to live it!! The kids are amazing and I will miss them so much!!! (more)Cristina Piccolo
Visiting Chew Lorn Lake, swimming there, staying in the raft houses, and walking in the nearby forest were the highlights. (more)Stephanie Bunt
From £1162 excluding flights

Northern Thailand tour
The most memorable part of this holiday were the great guides. Both Wi and Aor were great company and very knowledgeable. (more)Lorrie Marchington
Most memorable? The warm welcome from all the people we met, the fun everyone was having at the Thai New Year festival, the variety of experience each day, and being able to see so much of the country. (more)Laura Woodhead
From £1925 - £2125 including UK flights
Thailand islands tour
Memorable parts? There were so many different experiences in this holiday that it is difficult to choose the most memorable. I suppose the snorkelling off Phan gan and visiting the archipelagos were the best moments for me, but tubing in the rain forest and feeding the monkeys is a close second. Tips? Ask the guide about the night markets in Bangkok which are really interesting and are a good place for buying presents and souvenirs. Local benefits? The tour guide was... (more)Amanda Harris
From £1770 - £1820 including UK flights
Southern Thailand holiday, reefs & rainforests
A great break, a brilliantly organised holiday, the tour guide OH really made it what it was, his in depth knowledge and enthusiasm for Thailand really made a difference. The train journey down to Nikon si thammarat was great... waking up in the morning and opening the window to a whole new world, as the train travelled through the rainforest was truly spectacular, it really made the experience real, much better than a boring aeroplane ! (more)Amy Lance
We enjoyed the holiday overall and the last few days on the island were a welcome break after previous exertions! (more)Sue Hewson
The most memorable parts were the nature/countryside, trekking and climbing, the waterfalls. (more)Debbie Hughes
From £1925 - £1975 including UK flights
Holidays to Thailand, Classical Thailand
Memorable parts? The cookery course at Cooking at Home. The railway and war cemetary at Kanchanaburi, elephant training centre. Time to "chill" Tips? Think about booking an extra night before/after the trip. The hotel in Bangkok is close to the markets of Banglampu and Thawet and the best shopping was in Bangkok. Be prepared for the heat/humidity. Up to 40 degrees in March. However this is a very leisurely trip and most of the accommodation was very comfortable so it was more than... (more)deborah lloyd
From £2049 - £2629 including UK flights
Northern Thailand budget holiday
Koh Tao was like paradise, such a beautiful place with great people... I had a great time and seeing different parts of Thailand, I would rate the holiday as very enjoyable. (more)Nova Hart
Had a great time, enjoyed meeting and walking with people from the other countries on the trip. Our guide was excellent, the rafting and elephants fun and an adventure. (more)Peter Abigail
It was an excellent holiday one of our best holidays. The local guide was lovely, he tried to teach us an elephant song! (more)Holly Robertshaw
From £311 - £385 excluding flights
Cambodia & Thailand holiday
Angor Wat temple is beautiful. It was amazing to see that almost one thousand year building in such a good shape. (more)Iwona Warszawska
The whole trip was brilliantly planned as we traversed through Cambodia, to a Thai Island, then to Bangkok without any hiccups anywhere. (more)Greg Bartlett
A few memorable moments are the temples at Angkor which revealed something new each day, the somewhat sobering experience of Tuol Sleng. (more)Michael Robinson
From £2450 - £2650 including UK flights
Indochina holiday adventure
Memorable parts? Treking through the jungle and then meeting a hill tribe in Laos - drinking local whisky with the "chief." Meeting other lowland tribes in Laos. These visits gave us an appreciation of how people live (very different to our own lives!) A day sailing down the Ou river into the Mekong river and another day sailing down the Sangker river in Cambodia. Visit to the Golden Triangle and a very enjoyable stay in Luang Prabang. Eating with fellow travellers, enabling us to sample... (more)Joyce Godfrey
From £2350 - £2700 including UK flights
Single parent holiday in Thailand
Memorable parts? Hell fire pass, kayaking along the river, seeing a rubber 'production plant' in the jungle on the side of the road. Tips? If you want to be in a group, donít book until the last minute, or until you have been told who else is on the holiday. Pack light. You donít need many clothes (itís hot out there!) and you do need to move from place to place quite a lot. Local benefits? Yes.... to a certain extent. Overall rating? We were well looked after, and... (more)Sue Cooper
From £2400 including UK flights
Bangkok to Hanoi tours
Memorable parts? I enjoyed the homestay the most as I felt like we got to understand a little bit about the people and managed to keep fit with the kids :) Tips? Plan for a few days in Singapore at the start. Local benefits? Yes, the homestay. Overall rating? I enjoyed it a lot. (more)Dave Wood
From £978 - £1255 excluding flights
Thailand family holiday
Trekking in the hills of Northern Thailand and staying in a traditional Hilltribe Village home were the most memorable parts. (more)Suzi Drew
Most memorable were the stay with Karen hill tribe and the seclusion of the beach in koh samet. (more)Farrukh Alam
Fantastic holiday enjoyed by all the family... Riding elephants and jet boating down the canals were real highlights. (more)Lisa Beckenham
From £1683 - £2104 including UK flights
Thailand tour, Bangkok and Chiang Mai
Memorable parts? Trekking in Chang Mai, without a doubt. The itinerary was amazing and we'll never forget the bamboo rafts being made right in front of us, the elephant trek and the hospitality of the hill tribes. Tips? If you're not a city person, I wouldn't recommend staying in Bangkok more than a day and a night. We had 3 nights there and it was too long. Local benefits? Hopefully. We donated some of our stuff to the hill-tribes and bought local food and goods. We felt... (more)Louise Allman
From £999 - £1099 excluding flights
