Memorable parts? The visit to Georgetown, Penang was one of the most memorable. We enjoyed the guided bike ride around the ethnic areas and avoiding the traffic was a challenge! Noordin Mews was a very pleasant place to stay. The visit to the tea plantation and factory was special as was the guided walk in the 'mossy' cloud forest. The canopy walk In Taman Negara was also a challenge but disappointingly no animals were seen, well a couple of leeches and a butterfly. Tips? Pack... (more)Helen Hore

Such memorable experiences. A million bats streaming put at Dusk in Khao Yai, the elephant rescue nature park, the night in a raft house on Khao Sok Lake and the final three days on the beach... we needed it by then! (more)Rose Barling
The zip lining and white water rafting were pretty exciting! The zip lining was very safe and well run. The white water rafting guides just want to make sure you get as wet as possible! (more)Sophie Horner

The most memorable part of our holiday was the time spent at Plitvice. We arrived in torrential rain at c9.00 am, but had come prepared with our ponchos! By mid morning the weather had cleared and the sun was out. This area has to be unique in the world, with all the walk ways running along the numerous waterfalls and water flowing underneath your feet. (more)Amanda Distin
Difficult to make a choice because the coastline is beautiful and the towns are very interesting but the Plitvice Lakes have the edge and were very memorable even in the rain! We also found Ston surprising - in a good way - particularly walking the walls. (more)Marilyn Cole
Plitvice National Park and walking the walls of Dubrovnik both stand out as super experiences. Both needed early starts but so worth it to get ahead of the crowds and enjoy the beautiful scenery. (more)Carolyn Farrar

We loved the rafting trip. My 7 year old was buzzing from the excitement of jumping off rocks into the river and rafting down the small white water sections. The farm visit was excellent too with Des and Ilaria's eldest son, Ludo, providing the translation for everything from the goat milking and horse riding to cheese and bread making. (more)Tanya Hayes
We loved it all. The rafting, the kayaking, the rock climbing, the peace and tranquility, the lovely local people, Des and Illaria, the house, the stars and spending time together. (more)Jonathan Stevens

Memorable parts? We had many memorable experiences on our trip to China. Every day produced a new experience, each different and often additional things that we had not anticipated. Clearly The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, Panda's, Forbidden Palace were all amazing, but for me the peace and quiet of drifting down the river on a bamboo raft at Guilon was just perfect after the frantic travelling around China. Tips? Make sure that you have a suitcase with wheels,there is a lot... (more)Nigel Davies

Memorable parts? There were many, I would pick Ninh Binh as a fantastic example of Vietnamese landscape.

I would suggest to have an idea of the itinerary and the type of trip and then contact a tour operator with a strong knowledge of the country. Tips are invaluable if travelling for the first time there. I also found extremely useful having a local guide and... (more)Ezio La Rosa

The most memorable was the boat ride down the Hozugawa River starting at Kameoka and a JR train journey from Kyoto that is reasonably short. It was a real experience, and made worry free by the superb back-up of the tour operator. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend them. (more)Ian Halstead
