    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
    Arctic diving & Polar Bear Watching Expedition
    From
    €3,020
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas
    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
    Transylvania holiday accommodation
    From
    €36
    per person per night
    It was the perfect 'get away from it all' trip where you really felt like you were stepping back in time. The location, nature and wildlife were stunning and I particularly enjoyed meeting many different people staying at both the guesthouses. (more)Melanie Johnson
    We were impressed by the beauty of Romania. It was really opened up for us by the excellent guides at the guesthouse, who showed us places and things we would never have found on our own. (more)Fiona D
    Fantastic would definitely recommend and hope to return (more)Ann Adamson-Eadie

    Transylvania holiday, Dracula tours in Romania
    From
    £788
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Exploring medieval citadels, tracing the old city walls, and climbing all the watch towers one comes across are some of the most enjoyable moments of this holiday. Tips? Pack light - most of these charming hotels do not have elevators :) Local benefits? I think the kindness and sincerity of the local people, coupled with Romania's unspoiled natural beauty benefited me! Overall rating? Thoroughly enjoyable and memorable! (more)Betty Jung
    Traditional crafts holiday in Scotland
    From
    £895
    excluding flights
    Going through the whole process of watching the sheep being sheared, working with the fleece, gathering plants to dye with, creating amazing colours and then using them to create my felted wall hanging. (more)Kathy Lovatt
    The experience was incredible, better than we imagined. It was magical to work with all the natural materials in such a beautiful setting. Ten out of ten. (more)Robin Lentz
    I loved it...I personally love venturing in to nature and the creative element meant I also left with something which I can now use back home (more)Katrine Roberts

    From
    €950
    excluding flights
    Hiking with huskies is an unusual experience, they are such a smart and good dogs. A++++++++++ :) (more)Anastasia Nastik
    Great, a real escape from it all and a back to basics experience with great hosts and a fantastic way to get to experience the real Finland. (more)Morag Turton
    The scenery was fantastic - pristine pine forests dotted with lakes but the most enjoyable part was getting to know our guide, Aki, and of course the dogs! (more)Justin Francis
    Treehotel and Northern Lights holiday, Sweden
    From
    £965
    excluding flights
    The husky dog sledging day - it was wonderful - you get your own set of huskies & sledge with a fur rug. Remember your ski goggles thou' - we had a lot of snow & you can go quite fast (particularly if light) - afterwards hot chocolate & homemade cake in a tippee with roaring fire! Fab. (more)Cindy Chattaway
    The stay at the Tree Hotel was brilliant. The accommodation is great, the food delicious and the people wonderful. The whole experience was great, but probably the dog sledding outing was the stand-out element. (more)Carole Thomas
    Halloween tour in Transylvania

    £499
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? We felt that the whole Transylvanian experience was memorable, especially seeing the Castles and also the Halloween party was amazing. I have never experienced a Halloween quite like it ever before, just wished more people had dressed up . Tips? Just to go with an opened mind, Expect a lot of travelling and not a lot of free time to yourselves , but experience an amazing country with fantastic scenery, lots of culture and history. Having a very knowledgeable and... (more)gillian simpson
    Live with a Berber family in the Moroccan Sahara
    From
    £170
    excluding flights
    The raw and organic experience every traveller craves. There is simply no better way to experience the Sahara! (more)Stephanie Jones
    I would rate my holiday as excellent. The time spent with the family was amazing, they were kind thoughtful and nothing was too much for them. But looking up at the stars from within the sand dunes was an experience that I am so glad I had a chance to experience. (more)jean-francois rodrigues
    Most memorable was sleeping under the stars in the Sahara Desert - the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Stars will seem dull for the rest of my life in comparison! A fantastic experience of a lifestyle so completely different to any I have known. (more)Emma Langridge
    Wild food cookery weekend in Scotland
    From
    £150
    excluding flights
    Exceeded my expectations by far! An amazing holiday for anyone with an interest in history, archaeology, food and agriculture. (more)Alexandra Young
    The most memorable and exciting part of the holiday was drinking nettle beer as the sun went down on the Saturday night. We'd had a busy day digging, foraging and cooking, so seeing it all come together at the end of the day with a crackling fire and that beautiful view of the valley below was truly memorable. (more)Heather Pollington
    Turkmenistan cultural tour, mysteries of the desert
    From
    £2,499
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? There were quite a few highlights in Turkmenistan: the dinosaur trail near Afghanistan, the fire crater, the old ruins of Merv, Konya Urgench, and more. One day we were passing through a town and saw that there was a wedding. Everyone was so happy and wanted us to be happy with them and join in - so we did. Ashgabat itself is weird. The scale of the city is huge, not people-scaled at all. I don't think that there was any urban planning involved, just large avenues with... (more)Jacqui Licht
