Antarctic cruise and hiking in Chile
Memorable parts? Antarctica was magnificent but if I had to choose but one most memorable moment it would be the sunset and scenes on the night we elected to camp out... Tips? Being prepared for the rapidly changing conditions and being equipped with the correct clothing. Respect where you are and its beauty. Sadly too many noisy co travellers missed out on taking in the beauty and reflecting on the moment.. Local benefits? Tour operators were excellent in maintaining a strict... (more)Edmund Raczkowski
From 10705 excluding flights
Tailor made holiday in Peru
Memorable parts? EVERYTHING - it was just great! Tips? To inform themselves very early (6 month before booking) to get the most out of it. We therefore had the best holidays ever and people we met on our tour were just jealouse, because we could do all the cool stuff (we had organised the permits for Huayna Picchu, the Trek to Huchuy Qosqo etc.) Local benefits? Yes I do Overall rating? Great! (more)Barbara Buchegger

Amalfi to Sorrento walking holiday in Italy
Memorable parts? The views and location by far - and with only a few exceptions the friendliness of the people and their willingness to speak English without any hint of frustration by your lack of Italian. The Hotel Capodimonte in Sorrento deserves a special mention for its first class service across the board but particularly for its restaurant. Tips? Do not hesitate if you have the footwear for demanding terrain. The walking guide is detailed and comprehensive - it is wise to... (more)Christine Higgins
From 1359 - 1588 including UK flights
Kilimanjaro Climb, safari & Zanzibar holiday
Memorable parts? Too many to mention! Highlights - getting to the top of Kilimanjaro and Serengeti safari! Tips? Do your research. We tweaked our holiday quite a bit and the main aim was to climb Kilimanjaro - had we not researched and as such altered the original itinerary by adding an extra day - we would NOT have made it to the top - which would have soured the rest of the trip which was to go on safari and finish in Zanzibar. Local benefits? Yes - we had sixteen people... (more)Angie Koufou
From US $4550 - US $5850 excluding flights

From 585 - 1615 excluding flights
Snowshoeing in the French Alps
The husky dog sledding, the ice climb, the snowshoeing itself, being out in such a beautiful environment! And our companions too - the other four people in the party were lovely, and we all got on very well together - enough in common to bond yet different enough for good conversation! (more)Angela Dennison
In terms of the most exciting part, it has to be the ice climbing...not part of our original plans but I'm so glad it was suggested. Slow down and enjoy your stay in what really is an undiscovered part of the Alps. (more)Norma Sherratt
Well organized, interesting, hassle free and great fun- the ideal introduction to the activities. (more)Matt Hannah
From 985 excluding flights
Mercantour family walking holiday, France
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

The kindness of our hosts, the nice balanced way they shared and included us in their individual enthusiasm and warmth, the pertinent information about local and Piemonte region, without coming too close were most memorable. Excellent holiday. (more)Anna Welsing
