Family holiday to India, sightseeing and safari
From
£596
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Taj Mahal, Amber Palace, Ranthambhore National Park. Tips? Travelling in August is possible. The Monsoon did not affect us much. There are very few tourists and the countryside is green. Don't count on a good match with other families. Local benefits? To the extent that one bought or consumed local products local people benefited. Our impact on the environment was negative (flights, local travel, bottled water, pools etc). Overall rating? The key... (more)Alexander Auboeck

€120
per couple per night
We loved the apartment and listening to the sea. (more)Petrina Brooks
A hike across the amazing Timanfaya National Park led by Jose of Blackstone Treks was the most memorable. (more)Sarah Brocklehurst
The best part was staying in the tiny fishing village of Punta Mujeres and interact with the locals simply by having a cortado or getting a beer with the others. This is the best slow travel I have experienced. Highly recommended, if you want to walk, trek, read, write, have great food and surrounded by simple, kind people. An unforgettable holiday where the pace was slow and the locals very kind including the mini market at Punta Mujeres, the hair dresser and folks at Bar Palenka. (more)Priti Patnaik

£846
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Food and different modes of transport Tips? Don't hesitate, just book it! And while you're there, have an open mind, go with the flow and follow the food safety rules! Local benefits? Yes to an extent. Plastic usage in Vietnam is horrendous, but having one single plastic water container on the bus was one way of offsetting it, as was having fabric bags with 'No plastic water bottles' written on it in Vietnamese. I enjoyed interacting with locals the most... (more)Yvette
Luxury Greek Island holiday accommodation
From
€2,495
per week (sleeps 4-6)
We have lots of lovely memories so it is difficult to single any one thing out. But as we have to choose we would say the beautiful views gardens pool and the charming cottages which provide a wonderful environment in which to relax and also the great welcome and inobtrusive support of the family who built, own and run the estate.

Our stay was a unique & happy experience, unlike any previous holiday. While it can be a challenge to get there, the effort is repaid abundantly. It’s an eco-chic vacation in a cottage where everything can be taken care of, according to one’s wishes. One returns refreshed in mind & body. (more)Bryan Parker
Birds, bats, bees, lizards, pine martens, countless types of flowers and olive, eucalyptus and cypress trees blend in with the traditional style houses. We loved the walks around the forest... I could have spent the entire 10 days happily without leaving the estate at all. (more)Chris Kearney

So many lovely places, arriving at night with the tiny windows lit up, the smell of the air, exploring the village Seinya with it's fruit trees, vegetable patches and beautiful sand coloured buildings and village square and gentle village life, arriving in Besalu-wow, the most spectacular Medieval village, swimming in the lake at Banyoles, the landscape, seeing a wide boar, swimming in the river, visiting Girona-that first veiw of the old town lining the river, the cat family... the teenagers getting...

Memorable parts? Experiencing the real and unspoilt Spain, sampling the local food and hiking in delightful countryside. No tourists and the rustic charm of the accommodation. Tips?

The walks were very enjoyable taking anything... (more)Ellen Common

We really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa – the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. (more)Michelle Christensen
Absolutely lovely. It is probably a huge cliche but seeing the children laughing and playing by themselves and with new friends meant I was more relaxed - it all just ticked over perfectly and resulted in a great holiday. (more)Kate Macnab

North Devon ecolodge, England
From
£501
per week (sleeps 8)
Memorable parts? The large pond/small lake was perfect. Our children spent most of their waking time in the water, on the paddle board, in the boat or on the island. Some of us adults joined them ... but at the end of October, with no wetsuits, we mainly left it to them! It was heaven.
