Bolivia tour, tailor made
From
US $3,895
including domestic flights only
Overall was a great trip. The 27 days tour starting from Uyuni and ends in Lake Titicaca was amazing. All the guides were friendly and professional, especially the one in La Paz (Leonardo), he was Super helpful and knowledgeable and would strongly recommend people to use he. (more)Jon Ng
We loved the variety offered by Bolivia, from the stunning mountains of the Altiplano to the breathtaking views over lake Titikaka to the exciting wildlife in the pampas grasslands to the incredible, other-worldly experience of the salt flats and desert. (more)Phil Bland
The Uyuni Salt Flats. We were fortunate enough to see it after a rainfall and it was looking into a reflective pool. We had a wonderful time in Bolivia, we wish we had more time to explore the country more, we'll be back! (more)David Torres

From
US $2,245
excluding flights
Very good...I enjoyed both the safari in Serengeti and the diving in Mafia very much (more)Marina Poletto
Fantastic! Amazing! Awe inspiring! The trip of a lifetime! Our most memorable moments were our interactions with the local people. Even though we booked this safari to see the Serengeti, we also wanted to make sure we spent an equal amount of time visiting and getting to know the people of Tanzania. We will forever hold in our hearts how warm and inviting everyone was. (more)Teresa VandenBosch
Fantastic. It was the perfect family holiday with a 12 year old and 14 year old. Always plenty to do, loads of variety, but never rushed. (more)Rebecca Rowland

From
US $3,008

Excellent in all ways. Ms. Thanh Ha of the operator’s Saigon office provided detailed information and reminders, and she met us in Saigon to make sure everything was as we hoped. (more)Sandy Snyder
Eating and experiencing the beauty of Vietnam was the most memorable part...Brilliant. Wouldn't hesitate in doing it again and recommending to anyone wanting some happy healing holiday happenings. (more)Anita Lowe
Sudan holiday
From
£2,299
excluding flights
The highlight was seeing the people, the remote locations, the sights we saw tucked away off streets - no fencing around them, just there for all to enjoy...sunrise on camels, sunset on the pyramids. (more)Virginia Draper
I had a great time with a good international group of friends. A brilliant guide Kahlid, great drivers and support staff. (more)Geoffrey Hermsen

Adelaide to Alice Springs tour, Australia
From
AU $2,495
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The wonderful walks -- canyons, gorges, other natural features -- that revealed to us the natural riches of the Outback, from birds and other creatures to the land itself. Also... the bush knowledge and sensitivity of our leader, Steve. He added immeasurably to our appreciation, and therefore our pleasure. Tips? Probably more important for Europeans than Canadians or Americans (who live in big-scale countries): realize emotionally, not just intellectually, that once... (more)Penny Williams
Flinders Ranges wilderness tours, South Australia
From
AU $695
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Flinders is a very dramatic park and one that invites you get out and walk. Wilpena Pound is a rock fortress, a piece of land enclosed of each side by high cliffs with just one route in. Inside their are lovely walks through huge gums - its a very tranquil and relaxing place. Staying at Rawnsley Park, a working Merino Sheep Station, was a real treat. We stayed in one of the Eco Villas, and the highlight was lying in bed and pushing a button that withdrew a blind... (more)Justin Francis
Oman holidays, Arabian sands
From
£1,799
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Traveling through and camping in the Omani desert was the most memorable part of the trip for me. I have crossed the Sahara twice as well as the Gobi Desert but the sand dunes of Oman are even more beautiful and interesting. Tips? As the trip doesn't have much free time in Muscat I would suggest arriving a day earlier or staying one day more that is NOT a Friday so that you can see some of the museums of Muscat. Local benefits? I don't think the trip had... (more)Nancy Wiesenfeld
Jordan cultural tour, hosted by Bedouin of Petra
From
£2,149
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Our interaction with the Bedouin guides, their charm and their perspectives on the history and current social and political life in Jordan was really memorable. Petra was magnificent and Jerash was a real gem. Jordan is a much un- heralded destination. Tips? More than 2 days in Petra is necessary. Must dos - Petra, Jerash, Amman, the desert. Be open to the everyday encounters with the guides, drivers, shop-keepers etc Local benefits? Benefitted local people.... (more)Eleanor Moore
Cultural holiday in Ghana, Togo and Benin
From
£2,249
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We experienced many memorable events but the Voodoo Festival in Ouidah, Benin was the most exciting. It was very colorful and spontaneous. Numerous people went into trances and engaged in wild dances. Tips? Don't hesitate to go. It will surpass your expectations. Don't worry about security. It felt very safe. But be ready for heat and humidity. Local benefits? Local people obviously benefited a little from the money we spent and it's possible that... (more)Frank Keen
Burkina Faso small group tour
From
£1,899
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Fascinating to visit many local tribes & see & hear about their varied customs & beliefs - an anthropologists dream. Most memorable for me were informal visits to villages & meeting the lovely welcoming people. Tips? Probably not the best trip for a first time visitor to Africa. Practise your French. Take eye drops to help with the heat & dust! Local benefits? Definitely a benefit to local people - the number of tourists has dropped due to the problems... (more)Joan Godman
Zambia safari in South Luangwa
From
£3,365
excluding flights
The most memorable part was when we were driving up a rocky dry river to see white rhinos and when they smelled/heard us and started coming towards us, realized they could be a lot faster than us on this terrain. (more)Sven Jeanrenaud
The most exciting was the gorge swing & white river rafting in Victoria Falls as well as the night game drives following lions stalking prey in the Okavango. (more)Jean Pierre Kruger
Ghana cultural tours
From
£3,185
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part was probably walking around the busy streets of areas like Accra Old Town, Osu and the centres of Cape Coast and Elmina. There is always something to look at amongst the crowds and you feel safe and are not unduly bothered. Particularly enjoyable was a visit to a local high-life band’s concert in Cape Coast. And we were very interested in a couple of meetings we had with academics about Ghanaian culture and history. Tips? We only went for... (more)Chris Pountain
Gerewol festival holiday in Chad
From
£2,249
excluding flights
The colorful festival itself with all the singing and dancing was of course the highlight of the tour. All the big smiles and greetings that we received from the tribe members during our stay with them, should be mentioned as well. (more)Fredrik Stenström
Interacting with the Mbororo people was a very rewarding experience...the work which had been done before the trip started in order for the group to be accepted was obviously of the highest standard. (more)Tony Camacho
Cameroon holiday, Tribal lands
From
£2,325
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The highlight of the trip was the trek in the Vokre mountains to stay with the Dupa people, also our stay in Bukaru camp visiting other tribes in the area. Tips? Local benefits? By using local hotels and services, Bukaru camp staff and porters on the trek I feel that we put much needed money into the local economy. Overall rating? I would have liked extra time in the North perhaps also staying with another tribe. I feel that the trip needs extra... (more)Eric Osborn-Hodge
Northern Pakistan holiday
From
£2,499
excluding flights
Drive through Shandu Pass and KKH to the China border, amazing scenery! (more)Christine Smale
The landscape/topography is breath taking, everywhere, everyday. The mountains and valleys do surpass the phenominal Pakistani hospitality. I had 15 breathtaking days. (more)Jim Troy
Holiday in Mongolia
From
£1,899
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The solar eclipse. Also visiting a nomadic family one night. Tips? Not really applicable as a one-off trip to see solar eclipse and Mongolia along the way. General tips would be Mongolia is a big country with poor infrastructure. Make sure your trip doesn't involve too much driving or you will spend your whole time on a bus and not out seeing things. Covering 400km in one day, while possible, is not pleasant. Local benefits? Yes and no. It was run by a Mongolian... (more)Sam Grainne
