Thailand tailor made holiday, elephants, jungle & beach
It was a really great holiday, very well organised, and enjoyed by everyone in the family (more)Neil Emmott
The most exciting experience was the walk in the cave and jungle at Kao Lak. It was amazing to see bats suspended above our heads during all the walk. (more)Jonathan Rajaram
Great holiday...I would use this company again for a tour. Best bits: all of the different activities eg. cooking school, elephant camp, lake stay, train ride to Chiang Mai and Koh Tao. (more)Tracey Cannon
From £1149 excluding flights
Delhi to Goa overland tour
Memorable parts? Seeing was believing when it came to the Taj Mahal, not many places live up to be better than you anticipate as this place did. My wife and I have done some travelling, but this has to be the most impressive building we have ever witnessed. The Taj Mahal was almost worth the tour fee alone. Tips? Do not be put off by such a cheap price for the package, if we had paid treble we still would have been getting value for money! Don't be put off by such high attention from... (more)Jonathan Kenyon
From £749 - £799 excluding flights
Vietnam holiday
The best parts were the old town and cycling in Hoi An. (more)Fiona Christie
The most memorable part was the home stay on the Meakon delta and the National Park. I also love kayaking and seeing the wild monkeys in Haylon bay. (more)Juliet Price
Cambodia - the temples of Angkor Wat are a true gem; Phnom Penh and its museums as well as the recent Cambodian history were heart breaking but very educational. (more)martina kocjan
From £1184 - £1705 excluding flights
Costa Rica adventure holiday
Very good...Costa Rica is a beautiful Country where real effort is being made to protect the natural resources. (more)Claire Horrocks
The boat trip from Puerto Viajhoe to Tortuguero was relaxing, colourful and enjoyable - lots to see. Rainforest track to Rara Avis, and stay, memorable. (more)Frederick Lockwood
It was one of the best holidays, a good crowd of people and a good time had by all...White Water Rafting at La Fortuna was the most exciting part. (more)Liz Davies
From £999 - £1099 excluding flights
Sri Lanka holiday, island explorer
Sri Lanka had everything we love in a holiday, Culture, Wildlife, lush contryside and beautiful beaches. The forest lodge in Habarana was excellent off the beaten track with wonderful hosts. Seeing the baby turtles hatching at Rekawa and the leopard at Yala was also an exciting experience. (more)Amanda Law
Most memorable was the variety of landscape in Sri Lanka, the cave temple at Damballa, the train journey from Kandy, the views from Ella, the night stay in the tree house camp in Yala national park and seeing leopards, elephants and beautiful birds on safari in the park. (more)Barbara Essam
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Sri Lanka and the tour aspect was well organised. We particularly enjoyed the variety of activities and accommodation. Best bits were the trip to the rock fortress and Yala where we saw leopards and a big black bear which apparently was very rare. (more)jude parsons

Brac Island family activity holiday, Croatia
Jumping into the freezing source water after a bike ride in intense heat was an amazing feeling...Excellent! We hope to come again and do it all over! (more)Andrea Freely
The most memorable parts were the people, the food, the island! We felt at home with the staff of the wonderful Illyrian Resort...This is a fantastic family owned business that provides the nicest and most soothing atmosphere to relax and enjoy with your family. (more)Fernando Colchero
From £799 excluding flights
Mexico small group holiday, culture & beach
Memorable parts? The hubbub of Mexico City and all the sights and museums within (we could only sample a few, regretfully!); and the laid back charm of San Cristobal with its streets, processions and central plaza activities. Tips? - Be ready for temperature variations - from cold/nippy to warm/hot! - For vegetarians, be ready for limited eating options; - for those who haven't had Mescal in the past, don't be worried - it tastes great, as do the salted and fried crickets served... (more)CK Sharma
From £839 - £1139 excluding flights
Lombok & Bali holiday
Memorable parts? WOW! So many different experiences and so many wonderful people. Climbing Mt Batur at 4am to see the sun rise was a major highlight and swimming in the cool clear waterfall in Lombok. Tips? You need to be relatively fit, however, there is not pressure to participate in any of the activities. Accommodation and transport are very basic but add to the whole experience. Take ear plugs! Local benefits? The bus transport gave of a few fumes...but generally we when... (more)Tracey Lawrence
From £565 - £670 excluding flights
Borneo holiday, culture and wildlife
Memorable parts? Seeing the orangutans and elephants in the jungle. Tips? Rainforest trekking can be strenuous in the heat. Would advise stout footwear and poles if at all unsteady. Local benefits? Certainly benefited local people and supported conservation. I worry about the number of plastic water bottles we got through and there is no infrastructure in place for recycling. Overall rating? Absolutely brilliant! The itinerary was was interesting and varied. The 2... (more)Steve Blake
From £1499 excluding flights
Mexico, Belize & Guatemala tour, Mayan encounter
Memorable parts? Snorkelling in a coral reef amongst nurse sharks and other amazing sea life was an experience that we will never forget. Tips? In spite of being by far the oldest couple in the group, we had a thoroughly amazing holiday with an excellent tour leader. Try to pack light. Local benefits? Yes, particularly the homestay which provides an alternate income for families trapped in povery. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Helen Hore
From £930 - £1095 excluding flights
Sarawak wildlife & beach holiday
Most memorable? Definitely climbing Mount Kinabalu. But very closely followed by the wildlife from orangutans, wild elephants to the sea turtles... Excellent... You should definitely book on this trip! (more)Kirsty Howland

The whole experience was amazing. Cuba is a fantastic place to go and one which is going to change so dramatically in our lifetimes. The atmosphere across the whole island was so warm and vibrant, with live music being heard on every street corner. (more)Faye T
Wandering the cobbled streets of Havana and Trinidad. Jungle walks near Trinidad and Baracoa. Staying with friendly hosts in their own homes. (more)Helen Peake

From £999 - £1249 excluding flights
Malaysia tour, Coast to Coast
Memorable parts? We had some amazing experiences. The most memorable part of the holiday was snorkelling and trying scuba diving in the Perenthian Islands off the East coast of Malaysia. Beautiful scenery, welcoming people and a real chance to recharge the batteries and relax! Tips? This tour is rather 'over guided'. We felt a bit limited and restricted by the tight timetable. Not quite what we expected. Local benefits? Rather disappointing - our rep was Australian, not... (more)Kate Hemming
From £2475 including UK flights
Cambodia and Thailand holiday

The most memorable part of the holiday as enjoying the un-touched part of Myanmar, which otherwise I would not be able to see had I not been on a sailboat. The hornbills, fresh oysters and the bonfire on the beach. (more)Jade Lam
A beautiful relaxing trip. We visited a local village and were able to buy things in the village so bringing some extra income to them. (more)Fiona Bardsley

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
