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
Excellent (more)Neil Heritage
For me, trekking through the jungle with an amazingly knowledgeable Guide was the highlight, despite the rain! And then there was the white water rafting, and the elephants, and the night noises, and the night markets...but let's not forget the unforgettable Thai people! (more)Sarah Stephenson
From 1149 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 1210 - 1600 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
The elephant riding and the Thai cooking was the most memorable part. (more)Sarah Morton
From 2900 - 3000 including UK 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 729 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
From 2100 - 2400 including UK 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 1029 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 1349 - 1399 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 various methods of travel through Borneo really gave you a sense of travelling like locals and getting the maximum "real life" experience... The best travel experience I have had so far! (more)Michelle Blois
From 1130 - 1305 excluding 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 including UK 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 575 - 680 excluding flights
Caribbean nature tour, Lesser Antilles
Fantastic, just wish we had had more time on both islands. (more)Jacqui Smith
The whales put on a great display for us, and a huge rainbow curved along the coast while we were at sea. On Antigua we swam with rays, not included in the holiday, and a great experience. On the rainforest walk on St Lucia we were lucky enough to see the St Lucia parrot. (more)Jenny Campbell
From 2650 - 2975 including UK flights
Indonesia holiday, Isle of the Gods
Borobudur is one of the world's great monuments. The people of Java were as friendly and approachable as you can get. (more)STEVE CRABB
It was great, I learned a lot and enjoyed the company. the most exciting part was Getting to the crater of Mt Bromo. (more)Philippa Drew
From 1015 - 1180 excluding flights
Cuba budget holiday
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
Most memorable was swimming in a cave, with bats over head! Meeting people from completely different cultures (and dancing with them...) (more)Cheryl Cohen
From 1099 - 1219 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
Small group backroads and beaches tours to Cuba
Memorable parts? Definitely climbing Cuba's highest peak, Pico Turquino. It was a stunning walk to the refugio where we stayed the night and then a tough climb up to the peak before a leg wobbling descent - stopping for some great local food on the way down - I've never been so hungry and it was delicious! We all felt a real sense of achievement afterwards. The guides were great, and the hospitality at the refugio was really fantastic. The visit to Comandancia De Plata was absolutely fascinating,... (more)Jemima Headey
From 1389 - 1799 including UK 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 2365 - 2550 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 2199 - 2799 including UK flights
Windward Isles & French Antilles holiday
The most memorable part of the holiday was the visit to Dominica and staying high in the hills at Roxy. Walking round the lake there. (more)Ewa Cobham
Fantastic...The weather and the people of the Caribbean. (more)Tracey Tilley
From 2486 - 3059 including UK flights
Burma sailing holiday, the Mergui archipelago
Memorable parts? Sailing amongst beautiful Islands Tips? Take lots of sun cream and also any old shirts shorts etc to give to Moekan villagers and seas gypsies. Local benefits? We visited a local village and were able to buy things in the village so bringing some extra income to them. Overall rating? A beautiful relaxing trip. (more)Fiona Bardsley
From 1515 excluding flights
Croatia cultural holiday with homestay
Memorable parts? Speed boat to blue caves in Havar. Dubrovnik old town walls walk. Tips? Sit back and relax everything runs on Croatian time. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Tour of country excellent somewhat let down by poor tour guide. (more)victoria davies
From 880 - 1035 excluding flights
Maldives small group tour
One night I stood in the shallow waters and stingrays washed over my feet and we saw a large school of dolphins going past, followed closely by a logger head turtle and then some sharks! (more)Anne Hazzard
The most memorable part was the candle lit dinner + sunset on the tiny sandbank island...Very enjoyable. (more)Robert Linsky
From 799 - 949 excluding flights
Cuban adventure holiday
Horse-back riding and galloping through the fields and valley of Vinales was the most memorbale part of the holiday (more)Felicity Hay
Cruising in the 1950's cars was absolutely amazing - this is a must in Havana!!! Also loved the horseback riding in Vinales - Che's monument - Trinidad was fun, lots of music/salsa dancing there. (more)Noula Contibas
The most interesting place on this tour was Trinidad. It had a lovely, chilled atmosphere and was a well maintained city, where the people were friendly. (more)Rebecca Clarkson
From 599 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 1679 - 1859 including UK flights
Southern Thailand tailor made holiday
Memorable parts? Trekking in the jungle Tips? Elephant rides and trip down the river very touristy and perhaps more suitable for older people. Islanda Hotel does not have a beach - just mud flats which was disappointing. Local benefits? In the jungle yes. In our trip out on the sea - no. Reefs were dead and there were hundreds of people crammed onto small beaches that we seemed to visit only because veryone else did so. Environmentally very bad. Overall rating? Good. (more)Karen Young
From 969 including domestic flights only
