A bit disappointing really
Algonquin Park tours in Canada, canoeing & moose
From
CA $599
excluding flights
It was great fun to be out on the water in the sunshine, paddling along the lakes and rivers. It was a beautiful, peaceful trip in which time did not exist. (more)Annemarieke de Bruin
Learning how to track animals, brew pine needle tea, make rope out of bark, start a fire in the rain and read weather patterns were the most memorable parts. (more)Jane Lucken
Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon holiday
From
£1,049
excluding flights
Well planned and organised. Excellent itinerary with a good balance between travel time and time at the location. Great guide! (more)Dini Plug
Excellent, great bunch of fellow travellers (tour was full at 13). Our tour guide, Dan, was great and made the holiday work really. He was always available to us and coped well with our different needs/wants and the unpredictable weather. (more)Wendy Pountain
The most memorable parts were my first view of Bryce Canyon; trekking down to Cedar Ridge in the Grand Canyon. (more)DC Gibson
Nepal extreme activity holiday
From
£1,690
including domestic flights only
Brilliant!! The most memorable part has to have been rafting the G4 rapids on the Bhote Koshi with thunder and lightning, rain bouncing off the water and 1.5cm hailstones falling from the sky, still all in 27 degrees heat, wow amazing! (more)Neil Whittemore
I had a brilliant time on this holiday and it fulfilled most of what I wanted to get out of the trip. (more)Murray Hendriksen
Mongolia adventure holiday, off the beaten track
From
£1,237
excluding flights
The landscapes of Mongolia and the night sky. (more)Judith Petrie
Excellent. Very well organised. Guides knew their stuff and were always helpful and cheerful. It was a tremendous experience and I would love to go again - maybe to a different part of this huge and empty country. (more)Theresa Partington
Memorable, beautiful, with a bit of challenge [especially for a 75 year old, me] (more)Elizabeth Wingate
Mongolia adventure trekking holiday & Naadam Festival
From
£1,733
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The ENTIRE trip was outstanding and amazing... the expertise of the guide, the enthusiasm for the country, the love of the country was thrilling. The NAADAM festival (which was what enticed me to going on this trip was even MORE than I had imagined Tips? Let Jess (the tour operator) guide you as to what you are most interested in seeing/experiencing. She is just so knowledge I had her plan a trip for my grandson and myself that I felt would be a great introduction... (more)Eve Solomon
National Parks holidays in America
From
£3,329
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were so many highlights! Perhaps the most memorable was the sunset in Monument Valley, the light made the rock glow. The tour leader was also excellent - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, but reactive to the views and wishes of the travellers, anticipating our preferences. Tips? Be prepared for extremes of temperature - cool and cloudy in San Francisco, extremely hot and dry in Vegas. Local benefits? Clearly using local accommodation, often not owned by... (more)Ian Roberts

From
CA $1,584

The most memorable part was walking over a snow wall and then sliding down an avalanche slope all in tea shirts with the sun blazing down on us, followed by a sighting of a grizzly bear. (more)Ian Halliwell
Rob, Marilyn and Troy were wonderful hosts, as were the whole team. The location is stunning, nestled in the mountains with a river running through the centre of it....We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and recommend it to families and couples alike. (more)Susan Brooks
I enjoyed every moment, every story the guides told, every view we climbed to. The Patenaudes are wonderful and knowledgeable hosts, and yet they remain relaxed and easy around their guests (more)Jo Homewood

The most memorable part was the optional extra activity of kayaking among icebergs off the Columbia glacier out of Valdez, Alaska. (more)Mary Jane Mahony
Alaska and Yukon classic camping tour
From
£3,409
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We travelled a great distance, saw tons of great scenery and was able to do a variety of activities so I can't really say that one thing stands out however Dawson City (both times) was great. Tips? Bring a bug hat/jacket and some good bug spray. Bring a variety of warm clothes (e.g. mitts, wool hat...) even in the summer months - you never know what the temperature will be like. It really is an active tour and to be ready for this. You do no have to be an athlete... (more)Mary Ellen Ruddell
Patagonian holiday
From
£2,825
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hiking to Torres Del Paine. Tips? Just enjoy it. Local benefits? I hope it. Overall rating? 8 out of 10. (more)Andrea Fregoni
Iceland adventure holiday, Lake Myvatn in Spring
From
€1,950
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? The guide, Ingimundur, had a wonderful passion for his country and delighted in showing us parts of this astonishing landscape which I doubt would be discovered by most independent travellers. Tips? Each season in Iceland brings a different set of wonders. A one-off holiday, such as this one (which was run, unusually, at the end of winter) gives an opportunity to see an astonishing country at a time when it is more-or-less free of tourists. coping with the spectacularly... (more)Kerry Bateman
Finland activity holiday and Northern Lights
From
€1,140
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The husky safari and the general scenery. Tips? The optional activities day - some of the activities incur a further charge (if you wanted to do snowmobile riding or further husky sledge rides. Some other activities are included in the price of the week (snow shoeing/ cross country skiing etc). This fact was not clear on the itinerary. Also if travelling as a couple, split your clothes/toiletries between you as the small aircraft you take from Helsinki has limited... (more)John Vango
Sweden family holiday, Ecolodge short break
From
€635
excluding flights
We had a fantastic time with our family of 4. Our teenage children did not miss their WiFi one moment, busy with making fire, canoeing, cutting wooden sticks (bring a pocket knife!), chopping wood... even doing the dishes was fun! (more)Gerda van Loon
Up there with the best. I was worried about all the changes with public transport but everything went very smoothly (more)Barbara Bishop
Costa Rica tailor made holiday, highlights
From
£2,200
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The stay at Cerro Escondido. It was not touristy, the hike there was great, and the managers were very welcoming. A beautiful, peaceful spot, off the beaten track. Tips? If you go to Tortuguero, go for as good a lodge as you can afford. We felt our guide was not as good as the one from the other lodge. Don't just stick to the well known bits, get off the beaten track a bit to experience the real Costa Rica. Local benefits? Yes! Most guides were local,... (more)Yvonne Chapman
Wilderness activity holiday with huskies in Finland
From
€1,200
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hmm, all of it, we had such a great time I couldn't really pick any one thing over the rest Tips? Local benefits? Yes to all three. Overall rating? One of the best experiences ever, could not recommend this holiday enough (more)Paul Ashby
Iceland adventure holiday, self drive
From
€800
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? We visited Iceland for the 2016 summer half-term week with all our family. There were eight of us, from three generations. So the most memorable part of this trip was all of us being together in such an inspiring outdoor environment. In particular our grandchildren loved it. Each of us had favorites within this holiday. Most popular was visiting the ice cave near Myvatn, closely followed by dramatic whale-watching (at least 14 whales) from Husavik, and the Detifoss waterfall... (more)John Stork
Wild Taiga activity holiday in Finland
From
€1,480
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were so many memorable parts: seeing a bear (and being able to hear it snuffling) only metres from our hide; canoeing down rapids; paddling across peaceful lakes and not seeing another soul all day; the beautiful scenery; picking a glut of wild berries; making coffee over the campfire and discovering yummy Finnish foods. Choosing a holiday operated by local people meant you really got to know Finland. My guide Urpo was always checking that I was okay and showing me... (more)Joanne Offer
Canadian Rockies & wilderness walking holiday
From
£1,569
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hiking the Iceline trail in Yoho National Park. Seeing grizzly and black bears by the roadside. Tips? The pace of this holiday is a bit frenetic and there was very little 'down time'. Days started early and every minute was taken up with hiking, cooking for the group (of 16 in our case) and washing up, putting up or taking down tents and travelling between destinations, but, despite the hard work, it was one of the best holidays I've ever had. Truly fabulous group... (more)Christabel Owens
Backpacking in the Canadian Rockies
From
CA $1,165
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of our holiday were the views that we experienced. They were breath taking. Sitting on top of Tangle Peak after having just climbed up it was amazing. Robert was a very good guide on this trail and told us a lot about the history of the land with the First Nations. The other trails that we went on were guided by Troy who was the most amazing person. He knew so much and was very encouraging as this was our first hiking holiday. He set a good pace and... (more)Joanne Barnas
Gobi Desert expedition
From
£1,395
excluding flights
Memorable parts? That's a hard decision to make. The Gobi desert in Mongolia awesome. I took around 4000 pictures and movies that we'll put on our website along with a travel log. We really liked the sand dunes and camels. I got some great pictures of horses, camels, people and the environment. It was awesome staying in Ger camps. Our driver, Ot, was awsome. Tips? Be flexible. Know that your guide and driver are very experienced. It's typical for a car to break down but the driver's... (more)Charlotte Lundemo
Highlights of Argentina tour
From
£1,335
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? All of it. Tips? Hotel information was not as good as it could have been. Many of the hotels did not do food and that could have created a problem over xmas & new year. Also some did not take credit cards. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Mike Billington
Ecuador holidays, Andes to Amazon
From
£2,699
including UK flights
The most memorable part of the holiday was the temples. 5 stars. (more)Rachel Furnell
A fabulous location, amazing tropical jungle surroundings, wonderful food and the adventure of walking through both primary and secondary jungle, not to mention the 2 hour trip downstream on the Napo River in a motorized canoe. (more)Susan Sargeant
Heaphy Track hiking trip in New Zealand
From
NZ $1,749
excluding flights
The most memorable part of the track was coming down from the tussock highlands along the Heaphy River, emerging out of the forest and seeing the beaches of The Tasman Sea. (more)Allan Justus
A great experience particularly with the tour operator passing on so much information about the geography, flora, fauna and history. (more)Peter Ladd
Seeing the rare Blue Duck close up in it's natural environment was very special. I also loved being in the company of people from around the World who were passionate about the environment. (more)Wendy Grace
Ecuador adventure holiday, tailor made
From
£1,395
excluding flights
Fantastic!!!! The best parts were tubing down the Napo River Valley! Also, enjoyed tremendously all the laughter on the ropes course, the river rafting and the hospitality and GREAT FOOD. (more)lynn mahan
Absolutely superb from start to finish. The operator was outstanding in making us an itinerary which was perfect for the amount of time we had to spend there, and we loved working with them before, during and after our holiday. We felt that the range of experiences, activities and accommodations enabled us to really experience a bug chunk of Ecuador and its culture in only two weeks. (more)Cara Roberts
Lapland holiday, husky safari & log cottage
From
€1,821
excluding flights
Memorable parts? It was all brilliant, but I would say the most memorable bit was the husky safari, it was so peaceful once the dogs got started. The rest of the trip was amazing too from the hotel Vuokkati, to cross country skiing, ice skating, visiting the spa at Katinkulta and Angry Birds park and going out on cross country ski trails and tobagonning from the hotel. Brilliant! Tips? Book through Responsible travel, every detail was planned Local benefits? We used the ski... (more)Lara Pletcher
Northern Pakistan holiday
From
£2,099
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The landscape/topography is breath taking, everywhere, everyday. The mountains and valleys do surpass the phenominal Pakistani hospitality. I had 15 breathtaking days. Tips? Think about what you want before you are there. In this fantastic environment, you can also white water raft, trek, climb, mountaineer...4 wheel drive etc. I was more than content with the cultural touring, some walking/treking, however there is so much more there if you are younger and more active... (more)Jim Troy

From
US $22
excluding flights
Tips? Be prepared to get sick. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Aaron Daubenspeck
Alaska adventure cruise
From
£4,049
excluding flights
Memorable parts? It has to be the Un-Cruise Adventure (though the road trip was pretty good as well). Tips? As they recommend, take plenty of layers and wet weather clothing (activities take place regardless of weather so you need the right stuff for hiking & kayaking, as well as watching the scenery and wildlife from the boat. Don't worry about "evening clothes" - most people only changed in the evenings if their day clothes got wet, and then jeans are fine. Local benefits? Having... (more)Lavinia Martins
