    I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
    Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
    Very enjoyable
    It was OK
    A bit disappointing really
    Mercantour family walking holiday, France
    From
    £435
    excluding flights
    Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
    The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of holiday. (more)Alison Godfrey
    The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert
    Bali eco lodge bungalows in Indonesia
    From
    US $85
    per house per night
    I hesitate to write this review for selfish reasons. Why? Because this holiday is so wonderful I'd rather keep it a secret! Situated on the southern slopes of Mt Batakaru in remotest Bali, this place is a pocket of paradise, far removed from the ravages of the 21st century. Having spent a week there I did not want to leave. (more)Daphne Donkin
    Most memorable was walking through the rice-fields... It was just great. (more)Astrid Dello

    Go for it. It was a great family adventure that we all loved. (more)Martha Rutherford
    Don't be put off by having a guide, we thought we would feel less intrepid but we learnt and laughed so much. Be prepared for the unexpected! Amazing fun. (more)Nikki Shack
    Fantastic! We constantly remember different things and look at the photos. Staying with a local family - our daughters got so much out of it. (more)Sarah Madeley
    Activity holiday in Montenegro
    From
    £495
    excluding flights
    We were the only tourists we saw all week, apart from a day we went to the coast which wasn't arranged by the hosts we were taken to hidden gems all week long, we would never have discovered these places without our fantastic hosts. (more)Louise Hirons
    Montenegro is only 3 hours away from UK and yet a world apart It gave our children a distinct feeling that they had gone further off the beaten track than we had seeing new animals and having exciting experiences the views of mountains and lakes at various times of the day were never something we stopped loving looking at . (more)Steph Bowler
    I loved the opportunity for wild swimming in Lake Skadar and surrounding rivers in the area. The National Park is outstandingly beautiful, and at times we felt like the only people there. (more)Maggie Felton
    Exciting family holiday in China
    From
    £1,650
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The itinerary planned by our operator worked out beautifully for my family of 8. A couple of the guides, especially Johnnie in Beijing and Susan in chengdu engaged with the children and helped make our time in those cities very enjoyable. we loved that logistics were taken care of by our guides n drivers. The children loved the ice skating, the time at the Great Wall, learning to cook their own dishes, spending Christmas day at the panda research center, biking in town... (more)Kristin Baker
    The centre was amazing. The people made it a great experience and we had wonderful food. The peace and tranquillity was wonderful and I appreciated being away from the crowds. (more)Sally Wright
    It is so hard to pinpoint the best part; it was all a fabulous experience. This is a place where you can completely relax and refresh your mind, body and soul. (more)Sarah Smith

    Up there with the best. I was worried about all the changes with public transport but everything went very smoothly (more)Barbara Bishop

    Memorable parts? It was all great. Temples in Bagan, boat ride and views over Lake Inle. Tips? Much of Myanmar great for family travelling. Comfortable hotels, great food. Warm welcome. Train from Yangon to Bagan bumpy but really fun! Local benefits? Yes. But would value more information particularly with regard to hotels. Overall rating? Brilliant. Guides and our agent were really very very good. Logistics perfect. (more)Joanna Macrae

    Loved each second of it. 10/10. (more)Sarah Marsden
    My holiday was the best experience of my life, so much so I wasn't ready to leave and got very upset when the time came to leave. I fell in love my elephant Campion and Boonma and his family welcomed me with open arms. Such good hearted people. The experience with them added to my amazing experience and I would recommend anyone try this experience. I would give this experience 10 out of 10 there was nothing I feel could of been better except for me booking longer! (more)Debbie Field

    From
    £559
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? This project and experience was absolutely amazing. As a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children, 8 & 10 yrs old) we decided it was important to not just have a holiday but to do something that would play a part in making a different to our environment for the future. Our 8 year old son, in particular had an interest in Turtles so we decided this would be a great project to work on. We weren't disappointed. The location was stunning, remote (so off the tourist route, which... (more)Simon Wrench
