Malaysia holiday, 14 days
From

Memorable parts? The visit to Georgetown, Penang was one of the most memorable. We enjoyed the guided bike ride around the ethnic areas and avoiding the traffic was a challenge! Noordin Mews was a very pleasant place to stay. The visit to the tea plantation and factory was special as was the guided walk in the 'mossy' cloud forest. The canopy walk In Taman Negara was also a challenge but disappointingly no animals were seen, well a couple of leeches and a butterfly. Tips? Pack... (more)Helen Hore

Memorable parts? We had many memorable experiences on our trip to China. Every day produced a new experience, each different and often additional things that we had not anticipated. Clearly The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, Panda's, Forbidden Palace were all amazing, but for me the peace and quiet of drifting down the river on a bamboo raft at Guilon was just perfect after the frantic travelling around China. Tips? Make sure that you have a suitcase with wheels,there is a lot... (more)Nigel Davies

It's hard to identify just one most memorable or exciting part - everything was amazing. The culture, the people, the food, the scenery, the transportation. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. (more)Garry Radford

Oman highlights tour
From

Scenery, views and walking were amazing. Tips? Good cover for women at the mosques but otherwise fairly relaxed for westerners. Local benefits? Some local people, not sure who owned hotels.

Cuba highlights holiday
From
£725
excluding flights
Memorable parts? So many different experiences make it hard to pinpoint one, but tropical storm at La Tarazzas, horse riding followed by Saturday night in Vinales, snorkling on coral reef at Cayo Levisa and Cuba in general. Tips? Allow a little more time for travel between locations as the roads are really poor quality off the main highway and there are no road signs so it is easy to get lost. In fact I would suggest taxi transfers rather than self drive. Make sure you take everything... (more)Sophie Randall
