Antarctica expedition cruise
From
£4,680
excluding flights
The whole trip was amazing, but I loved the whales and penguins the most! Go for it! Antarctica is truly special place! Be prepared for the high possibility of rough sea while passing through the Drake! That was really rough on our way back but it was worthy!! (more)Eva Pekarova
There are so many highlights that it is impossible to sensibly list them all. I would say the sheer majesty of the Antarctic landscape stands out along with the opportunity to be really close to wildlife such as penguins, seabirds and seals. (more)Nigel Wingate
The highlight was the vegan meals. (more)Emma Smith-Bodie

From
£350
per accommodation
Hard to choose between seeing the most spectacular sunrises from my terrace with a pot of coffee or standing on a high point on a nearby hill, able to see the sea on the horizon and the lunar landscape and mountains to my left. (more)Briony Turner
The highlight was the spectacular walks offering such amazing views. During our 5 days in Lubrin we did three of the long walks and we thoroughly enjoyed walking through the foothills as well as high in the mountain tops, just stunning. (more)Annette Easton
The walking was the highlight. Very good value, excellent location but need a certain level of fitness, or at least an ability to manage a short, steep climb in and out of the village. (more)Denise Oakman

Vietnam photography tour, Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi
From
£2,795
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? As a beginner, the most exciting part of my trip was learning how to use a camera and seeing travel in a whole new light. Stephen helped open my eyes to a new level of travel that I didn't know existed and taught me how to tell a story with my photography. Tips? Dress very comfortably as it gets really really hot and drink lots of water. I suggest bringing only 2 lenses and a light tripod. Try to fit everything in one backpack. Those with lots of heavy equipment... (more)Nicole Bhark

Skye and the Small Isles sailing holiday
From
£900
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I was very happy that we found the puffins rock (Dún Mòr) on Sanday. With another traveller I surrounded the peninsula with the help of a map with only a few details like some walls, the church and the silhouette of the island - no paths! But the puffins were exactly where they had been indicated on the map, and we had a wonderful, long walk. But I also enjoyed the boat trips - plenty of time to watch the sea, the sky, the birds, the seals, even some dolphins... Tips? Enjoy... (more)Brigitte Horlitz
Shark conservation in South Africa
From
£1,394
excluding flights
Memorable parts? My last cage dive. We had one large female shark who did a slow pass right next to the cage. You could see her blue eye moving and focusing as she had a good look at what was going on inside our cage. Tips? I would recommend adding a few extra days on either side of the project so that you can explore Cape Town and do any additional activities that you haven't yet had the chance to fit in. The longer you are there, the longer your "to do" list will get. Local... (more)Annabel Marriott

Memorable parts? Finding out about the 'real' India. Tips? I went to Calcutta which is raw and real. There is no pretentiousness, no pretence, just India how you might have imagined. Local benefits? I volunteered for a charity that empowered women - very much needed in many parts if India. Overall rating? Superb - it was everything I wanted. (more)alison hay
Mull circumnavigation cruise, Scotland
From
£900
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Being "on the water" was exhilarating! When the weather was good, it was glorious, and when the weather was stormy, it was exciting. Tips? Miminize luggage. Storage space is modest. Layers are necessary. Don't forget the rain gear. Be flexible. Much of the itinerary is dictated by weather and tides. The holiday providers office staff are very kind to help with arrangements. Try to take time before/after the cruise to visit Oban and Tobermory. Lovely towns. Local... (more)Sue Ellen Christensen

I am delighted to highly recommend Villa Nuba. It really was an amazing holiday. But be prepared....leaving it will break your heart! (more)Heather Reynolds
India tiger safaris
From
£2,175
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? The game drives are clearly the highlight. Don't expect to see huge herds of wildlife roaming open savannah like you do in Africa. Much of the terrain is hilly and heavily forested (particularly at Bandhavgarh) so sightings can be difficult and infrequent. However be patient, there is plenty of wildlife to see and the sightings you do get will generally be up close. You also get a lot of time in the parks, 6:30 to ~11.00 (with a pick nick breakfast) and 15:00 to ~18:30. All... (more)Peter Brown
Crossing the Antarctic Circle expedition cruise
From
£5,295
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A fantastic trip to Antarctica most memorable for crossing the antarctic circle. Tips? Do your research, we booked with the operator via Responsible travel but discovered that the ship is owned and run by another operator with whom you can book directly. The operator we booked with did not add anything extra on the contrary not particularly customer focused or friendly, so the operator of the boat should get all of the credit for Environmental Sustainability etc....
