South Africa safari holiday, 14 days
From
£3,250
excluding flights
The incredible wildlife viewing opportunities was the highlight. The passion for conservation shown by the guides and the safari camp employees. (more)Laura Johnston
Sitting in an open safari vehicle, surrounded by around 20 elephants, one of which was so close it would have been possible to touch its trunk. Also, having 14 days in which to learn more about the wildlife and ecology of the Kruger area. Opportunity to see the 'Big 5' plus many of the 'Small 5' and the 'Ugly 5'. (more)Dave Sewell
Our first leopard sighting was the most memorable. (more)Peter and Brenda Phillipa
Namibia and Botswana safari holiday
From
€3,220
excluding flights
Worthwhile. I will go again, perhaps to a different location at a different time of the year to complete my sightings of the Big 5. (more)William Green
There were many memorable moments - rainstorm in the desert. Climbing Dune 25 and Safari cruise in Nata. Itinerary good. Guides knowledgeable. Bilingual aspect impacted on enjoyment. Safety concerns as only one driver who drove for far too long in my option. (more)Ollie Millington
We enjoyed the whole experience but particularly enjoyed the Chobe River trip, because we saw such a variety of wildlife at close quarters. The plane trip over the Okavango Delta was also a highlight because it gave a wonderful overview of the area. (more)Richard Humphrys
Tibet tour, Lhasa and Lake Namtso
From
£1,060
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Visit to Everest Base Camp Tips? Take enough really warm clothes and pace yourself well Local benefits? We certainly brought business to them and I feel that we didn't cause an environmental impact. Overall rating? It was truly excellent. I had been to Lhasa before but this trip to EBC was magnificent. (more)Helga Gregory
Lapland holiday, husky safari & log cottage
From
€1,907
excluding flights
The husky safari was amazing. Truly memorable with a lifetime full of memories. (more)Srikanth Murthi
The most memorable was all the snow and ice activities - husky sledding, ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobile driving - were great. So different from what you can do in London! Would have been even better if the Northern lights had appeared while we were there but that's not under anyone's control. (more)Mark Harris
The husky tour, the tipi warm up snack times & quite simply, the amount of snow everywhere! (more)Michelle Adonis

From

There were many memorable moments. Camping in the Okovango Delta was amazing, and the walks around the delta meant that we could get really close to some animals without disturbing them. The sunset cruise on the Chobe River enabled us to see loads of elephants taking baths and they weren't bothered at all by our presence. (more)Tim Gregory
The whole holiday was wonderful especially drive through Namibia with spectacular scenery and its breathtaking landscape. (more)Arvind Sharma
Remember that this is Africa and everything does not work all the time. Be patient and positive and make friends along the way. (more)Louis Carroll

We really enjoyed all of the holiday. However, the most memorable part of the trip for us was the trek up to the Tiger's Nest. (more)Bronagh Purcell
The highlight was the walk to tigers nest in Bhutan, a 90 min twin seater plane over Annapurna base camp in Pokhara Nepal, and the monks debate in Tibet. (more)Geerhard De Vries

Annapurna Circuit and Tilicho Lake trekking holiday
From
US $1,195
excluding flights
It was incredible, amazing, breathtaking. Simply spectacular. Totally worth it, Nepal is a paradise, and its people are a big part of the good feeling you get there. (more)Laura Murillo
My guide Krishna and porter Ali were helpful throughout with Ali never saying a negative word about my kit bag he was carrying and Krishna being especially on the early morning ascent to Thorong La Pass. He sensibly walked 40/50 paces then stopped for 30 seconds and then on again etc. At that altitude the pace was just right and we made it to the top in wonderful snowy conditions with clear blue skies at 8.30 am – a great memory to have. (more)Len Davison
Nepal is a stunning country but it is being undermined by pollution and corruption. There seems to be an attitude that its ok to overcharge tourists because they are seen as rich by comparison. (more)Jane Crashley
Kefalonia, Lefkada & Ithaki walking holiday
From
£622
excluding flights
The fact that our excellent Greek guide was able to give us so much information about the islands, and also about Greek life in general. Through her we met a number of locals and felt it was altogether a very Greek experience. (more)Christa Laird

From

The most memorable was kayaking around the island of Utö on our free day. (more)Dave Sumpter
The two main highlights were exploring several beautiful islands by bicycle - a terrific way to see them and spending the last day biking in Stockholm Djurgarden - very nice. (more)Linda Johnson
Life enhancing. The operator provided comprehensive information and organised everything beautifully. This meant we were free to enjoy the cycling and discover the Swedish culture and sights. When I returned home I was still glowing from all the memories and sensations from the holiday experiences. (more)Angela Newton
Annapurna base camp trek, Nepal
From
US $850
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The kindness of the Nepalese people and my guide, the blue of the mountains sitting on top of the green grass... Tips? Don't go early september! Its too hot and the leeches are not amazing. Late september is when the good festivals and weather are. Local benefits? Yes! So much. I got really int supporting the local economy in Nepal - everyone is so gracious an happy to have you visiting so it was nice to return the favor how I could. Overall rating? I...

Alaska adventure holiday, salmon run
From
US $3,490
excluding flights
I loved this tour - it was amazing! Being able to travel Alaska in a converted school bus, with amazing guides and a fantastic group of like minded people, made for an incredible trip. We got to see some beautiful places and animals, ate really well and generally just had the best time. (more)Sasha Lim
Since this was my first trip on my own I felt very comfortable with the holiday providers as the owners were the people directly running the trip. They were always available to answer questions both before and during the trip. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking for an exciting overland tour of Alaska (and Canada too!). (more)Julie Woods
This is the best holiday my partner and I have ever been lucky enough to have. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it exceeded our dreams. If anyone is thinking of seeing Alaska and considering camping, this would be the tour to choose. (more)John Cracknell

The animal sightings were brilliant, the information we received about the bush was exceptional and above all, the friendliness of all the guides and staff and their desire to consider our every need resulted in a truly memorable holiday.

From

Everything was very good. The genuine welcome from every host hotel or guesthouse was excellent. Staying in guesthouses and eating their normal local food. Highlights were Veliko Tarnovo (especially Hotel Gurko), Plovdiv, and the hosts at Boyana Guest House (Vratsa) & Guest House Deshka (Gorno Draglishte) were great fun. (more)Tim Morgan
Both Plovdiv and Rile were interesting and enjoyable and despite communication problems the two homestays were interesting if challenging and the hosts we very friendly and kind. (more)Rodney Mount

Great Ocean Walk holiday in Victoria, Australia
From
AU $2,695
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers
Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group camping safari
From
€2,490
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every day was a different wonder but the two days wild camping at the Okavanga Delta were really special. Tips? Be prepared for very early starts and not much relaxing times. Local benefits? Yes, local guides were used in a number of locations but obviously driving such long distances is not exactly environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)christina monson
South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Monitoring and tracking the wild dogs was a most memorable experience. We'd get up early in the morning and sit in the back of an open jeep and roar off to the last sighting. It was winter. It was cold. It didn't matter as it was a big adventure and the not knowing would we find them or not? Waiting and watching for the next time. Really great fun. Tips? For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list... (more)Keith Costelloe
