Sri Lanka holidays, tailor made
From
£1,975
including UK flights
The most memorable was seeing wild elephants in a family group. The scenery and people. Visiting a hand weaving cooperative outside Galle- which took a little finding! (more)Steven Morgan
We stayed at a wonderful place called 'Banyan Lodge' in Sri Lanka. It was a eco-lodge and a very unique experience in a peaceful environment with nature all around... (more)Clare Lucas
Sigiriya in was visually stunning, and it was fabulous to stay at a hotel with a great view of the rock in at the end of our holiday; the elephant safari in Uda Walawe was for the most part a peaceful and enjoyable afternoon; the Barefoot cafe in Colombo was a lovely place to look around and have lunch. (more)Sally Roth
Luxury trekking holiday in the Atlas Mountains
From
€957
excluding flights
The views are stunning. The accommodation (both in the mountains and in Marrakech) is great. The food is terrific - the best tagine that we had was cooked 'on the hoof' by Ibrahim during our trek back to the Kasbah. The people that we met in the mountains were, without exception, friendly. Everything was superbly organised and presented. (more)Paul Watling
Trekking through the Atlas Mountains was the highlight. Excellent. Great staff and lovely accommodation exactly as described on the information. (more)Liz Alun-Jones
The views from the trekking were my favourite part and settling down after a hard days trek to a nice comforting meal and relax. (more)Craig Perry

The local Croatian people (crew, guides, restaurant/shop staff, etc.) were fantastic - so friendly, helpful and spoke such good English. To mark one crew member out, Tomy was a great hit with everyone, funny and with just the right level of familiarity. (more)David Hemming

From

The Noto Peninsula except for Wakura and the villages in the various parts of the countryside. Having a car made the difference. (more)Geraldine Hickey
Not the best holiday we have ever been on, too many problems, Some poor hotels, Guides who weren't that knowledgeable. Japanese not too helpful. Poor signposts not many in English, (more)JULIE HARRISON
The autumn colours were just amazing in Japan. Its a fascinating culture with so many memorable experiences, just a few spring to mind, walking the Nakesendo highway, staying at the Mitsui Garden hotel in Tokyo, the views are mind blowing from here, Geisha spotting in Kyoto... (more)Katherine Windibank

From
£7,367
including UK flights
Mount Cook scenic flight and whale watching was the most memorable. (more)Kirsty Millard
My husband and I did a 2 day horse trek and we had a ball. Then landing on a glacier in a ski plane was awesome. Can't overlook the wonderful people we met everywhere, they made the trip! My personal favorite place was Arthur's Pass. (more)Cathy Shiner
Laos tailor made holiday, culture & adventure
From
£1,995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? My wife and I agreed that our holiday in Cambodia was without doubt the best we have ever had. Every day was different, ranging from the magic of the temples of Angkor, the wildlife, ranging from dolphins to elephants, the sadness of the Killing Fields, the majesty of the Royal Palace to the beauty of Lonely Beach. To pick any one thing was impossible, but if forced to it was the absolute brilliance of the staff of the company at every level, in the UK organising and supporting... (more)Nigel Davies
Croatian Islands yacht cruise
From
£1,149
excluding flights
It was all memorable, the ship crew and Captain, the passengers and the overall proposal of the cruise. Wonderful! Congratulations to the crew, Captain and Cruise Manager for their effort in making this a memorable vacation. (more)Sylvia Azem
It was a fantastic experience. The boat was beautiful, the service and food first class. (more)Marilyn Kettle
It was a wonderful, relaxing break.... I guess top of the list would be swimming in the sea, off the back of the boat. I loved both Split and Dubrovnik, but also the lovely islands between them, especially Mljet national park. (more)Eileen Silcock
Vietnam tailor made holiday
From
£1,995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There really were many. However, for me it was probably the Vespa Adventure tour around Saigon. A really fun and exciting (and safe, so far as we were concerned) pillion ride around the city with stops at local eateries, a secret lounge (local singers) and finishing at a night club. A fantastic insight into Vietnamese city life, food and a chance to experience the organised chaos of its streets close up. Others might enjoy Angkor Wat, the Mekong cruise, halong bay or... (more)Paul Watling
Nepal holiday, cultural tour
From
£395
excluding flights
Memorable parts? So many great things its hard to choose one...flying over Mount Everest in a small plane, seeing sunrise over the Annapurnas, elephant safari in Chitwan Tips? Make sure you bring apropriate clothing eg colours of clothing in Chitwan so camaflourged in jungle Local benefits? We had 3 different local guides (all very good) in Katmandu, Pokhara & Chitwan. We were the only 2 people on our tour so we traveled everywhere by car provided by the tour company, not... (more)Helen Calder
Northern Thailand tailor made holiday
From
£1,995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? It was all fabulous but real highlights were our guide Nui, the cooking class in Chiang Mai and the wonderful temples everywhere Tips? Skip Lopburi, not worth it and thus avoid the long drive to Shukothai. Spend more time in Chiang Mai, it is worth it and go all inclusive for the beach part! Local benefits? Yes I did. We planned it so that we always stayed in locally run hotels (apart from BKK) Overall rating? it was really wonderful (more)Laura Leonardo
Tailor made holiday in Peru
From
£3,915
including UK flights
Memorable parts? EVERYTHING - it was just great! Tips? To inform themselves very early (6 month before booking) to get the most out of it. We therefore had the best holidays ever and people we met on our tour were just jealouse, because we could do all the cool stuff (we had organised the permits for Huayna Picchu, the Trek to Huchuy Qosqo etc.) Local benefits? Yes I do Overall rating? Great! (more)Barbara Buchegger
Ecuador holiday, Quito & the Galapagos
From
£3,500
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Swimming with sea-lions in the Galapagos. Tips? Don't delay! There wasn't anything I could fault. Local benefits? Yes - local guides were used in each city and also for the boat crew. The boat was classified as an eco-catamaran. Overall rating? Excellent. Very sad to have had to leave. (more)Sarah Hext
Mozambique adventure holiday
From
£2,750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Swimming with dolphins Tips? Be flexible and enjoy the feeling of being ruled by tides and wind on the dhow safari. Local benefits? I really hope so. The lodge is wonderful and is quite understated in what they do but they have taken a good eco stance and are an employer/supporter of the local population. I personally would like this aspect to be more explicit but I understand (and observed) that other guests might have different priorities. Overall rating? Truly... (more)Penny Horner
Tailor made holiday in Brazil
From
£4,500
including UK flights
We had a morning horse riding down a flooded area at the start, with our feet touching the water, and then across more open country; the wild flowers and birds were amazing. A 5.30 am canoe trip which was magical, so quiet and peaceful, seeing the beauty of the sun rising and hearing the early morning bird song; the canoe being so quiet we were able to get very close to birds before they flew. Later that afternoon we visited a fishing village down the river and were invited into their one room house... (more)Harvey Bromley
The Pantanel and Iguacu were wonderful. The Pousada at the Pantanel was great with wildlife wandering all over the place and the food was good too. (more)Linda White
The arrangements went like clockwork and all the guides and drivers were very friendly and helpful...fantastic holiday. (more)Jill Joseph
Peru holiday, Machu Picchu, Cusco & Lake Titicaca
From
£3,130
excluding flights
Inca trail and Machu Picchu was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Mandy Risso
The Andean explorer train ride from Cusco to Lake Titicaca was an excellent way to see many aspects of Peru from the city suburbs through the slums then farming communities, through the middle of market towns and past the spectacular backdrop of the Andes. (more)Jane Lines
The most lasting memory will probably be our stay on Amantani Island on Lake TitiKaka. We stayed with a family without water and electricity and it was both enjoyable as well as being an eye opener. (more)Chris Simmons
Garden Route holiday, tailor made, South Africa
From
£1,495

Most memorable was being so close to wild animals on the game drives at Elephant Plains...Fantastic! (more)Yvonne Chapman
The Drakensberg mountains and Didima camp at Cathedral Peak provided a magical start to the holiday, with stunning scenery, fantastic hiking and lovely accommodation; we could easily have stayed much longer there. (more)Barbara Sykes

Island hopping luxury holiday in Croatia
From
€1,050
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A mix of good memories. Dubrovnik was stunning but quite touristy. But Korcula was so peaceful and tranquil. The local seafood was amazing and the clarity of the seawater was beautiful. All the different excursions were great fun for different reasons. Tips? It is quiet and quite remote so if you are looking for peace and calm away from it all; this is the place. Local benefits? I assume tourism is important for the locals so yes; I guess they benefitted. Overall... (more)Paul Crowther
Madagascar tailor made tour
From
£1,888
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Very difficult to say. Spotting lemurs in the forest is certainly memorable but is that any better than the unique rock formations of the Grand Tsingy or the sheer pleasure of watching country life as you drive between reserves? The whole fortnight was memorable. Tips? Be prepared to start early in the morning when the lemurs are more active. We did so and saw much more than some other groups in our hotels who set off later and came back disappointed. You need... (more)Stephen Osgerby
Bangkok to Chiang Mai holiday in Thailand
From
£1,995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Trekking at the lodge in the hills of Northern Thailand (Chiang Rai province). The scenery was stunning, the Lodge vey comfortable, the trekking fun, food delicious and staff very friendly and informative. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for some adventure in Northern Thailand. Tips? Unfortunately we couldn't make the group date tours so our trip was tailor made, but based in the group tour itinaries. My main tip is to be prepared for travel in September - pack... (more)Mariam Conway
Tailor made holiday in China
From
£2,800
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Loads of highlights in our 6 week holiday: seeing pandas & the Terracotta Warriors, walking the Great Wall, sound and light show in Yangshuo, the Potala Palace in Tibet. We also found the building work around us fascinating- such a massive scale, 20 skyscrapers at a time going up plus huge road and rail building programmes. The sheer scale of everything was astounding. Tips? Research where you want to go. Local benefits? Certainly supported the local population. Overall... (more)Linda Seaton
