Chile adventure holiday
From
£3,949
including UK flights
Memorable parts? I fell in love with Patagonia and in particular our time in Torres del Paine. It's absolutely stunning! Tips? Don't expect to have much free time for independent exploring, it's an action packed itinerary. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? This was my first trip to South America and going solo I was a little nervous. It was great to be part of a group and explore Chile together. Even though the itinerary is action packed everything is organised... (more)Anna Hards

From

Every moment was fabulous. The contrast of the crowds in Tokyo to the quiet area in Nagano where we stayed in a priest's lodging. (more)Susanne Fever

From
£1,868
excluding flights
Bhutan is so beautiful, I just enjoyed the scenery and the fact that there are no shopping malls or chain restaurants.

(more)Lesley Taylor
Nothing will be as good as Bhutan!! (more)Raj Reehal

Jordan holiday, a week in Jordan
From
£1,379
including UK flights
Jerdash Roman ruins was quite intact and impressive. But the most memorable were Petra, the walk along the Siq, and seeing the Treasury, and the Monastery. They were fantastic. Hiking up to the cliffs of Petra and the views were outstanding. (more)Ferdinand Rullan
The most memorable moment was Petra (of course) and the camel ride at Wadi Rum (it is an optional but well worth it!). Our local tour leader was excellent (knowledge of history and kept us entertained during our bus journeys), the group blended well (the best so far), trips well organised and plenty of shopping opportunities. (more)Hely Collie
Petra was the obvious highlight but we saw so many other unexpected monuments, ancient cities and fabulous landscape. Every day brought a new highlight. An excellent trip that visited as much of the country as possible squeezed into a week. (more)Alison Drew
Small group adventure holiday to Patagonia
From
£3,528
excluding flights
Most memorable was Torres del Paine national park and climbing to the base of the granite peaks - something I'd dreamed about doing for years. Battling the Patagonian winds to stand on the beach photographing icebergs. Clinging on for life as we raced down the rapids white water rafting in the Lake District. (more)Ruth Edwards
The leader of the group was very well organised and had the patience of a saint. He got to know each of us and worked hard to ensure we had the holiday we expected (more)Elizabeth Caldwell

From

excluding flights
Brilliant, amazing and so informative and well organised by our guide Etienne (more)Anne Marie Murray
For me it was a life long goal to see Machu Picchu, which no picture or video can replace the memories logged in my head of the sheer size and awe of this place. But also whilst travelling through other countries, the beautiful landscapes just amaze you. (more)Michael North
Every day was a wonderful experience during our stay in Brazil and Ecuador but I guess the Galapagos will be the most memorable. (more)Ann Hammersley

Shanghai to Hong Kong tour, discover China
From
£2,138
excluding flights
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

From
£1,398

We were entirely happy with everything. And we had a great holiday that enabled us not only to see some very beautiful places and relax, but also gain some insight into Cuba and meet very friendly people. (more)Anthony Pitt
Always the big smile that Cubans give to all us tourists which hides the poverty and hardships they all suffer beneath. So my most memorable moment is always the warm friendly greeting that they give you. (more)Chris Turner
India holiday, the Golden Triangle & Varanasi
From
£1,265
excluding flights
The whole 2 weeks in Rajasthan, Delhi and Amritsar were magical. The Taj Mahal and Golden Temple more than exceeded my expectations. The memories of the wonderful people, noises, colours and smells will be with me for many years. (more)Sarah Day
The most memorable was seeing the amazing variety of birds and animals, including watching two brother tigers basking and drinking in the sun, at Bhandighar national park. Amazing. The organisation of it all was brilliant both from the UK and the Indian agents involved. (more)Caitlin Allen
Seeing tigers (close-up!) in Ranthambore was the most memorable. (more)Andy Hill
Cuba cycling holiday
From
£1,799
including UK flights
The trip was well run and the head guide was able to make small adjustments as needed. (more)John Delia
Most memorable for me was the window into the lives of Cubans. I learned a lot from our guide and the staff, but I had the chance to talk to many Cubans throughout the course of the tour. I will remember Cuba as a place with great untapped potential for economic development and growth. (more)Cynthia Gilliam
Hearing about the way of life/history from the guide was the most memorable. Excellent, loved the way the guide introduced the whole country and way of life to us. (more)Lois Martin
Cambodia small group tour, a food adventure
From
£910
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were so many! The walks through food stalls, the cooking lessons, the impromptu stops of the bus to get more street food and going to a BBQ with locals at Siem Reap. Tips? Its a jam packed itinerary so if you need lots of downtime, it's probably not for you. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? It was really great. The only recommendation I'd have is to add in an Angkor beer tour in PP. (more)Lauren Supplee
Albania holidays, small group tour
From
£919

We loved Albania so it is hard to think of one memorable part but the visits to the Blue eye, Gjirokaster, Butrint & Berat stand out. (more)Tony Barker
A brilliant experience. Fun, educational and eye-opening. (more)Kay Emblen-Perry
I feel that it supported local conservations in terms of restricting visitor numbers to archaeological sites, local museums. (more)Theodore John Levin
Japan golden route holiday
From
£1,790
excluding flights
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
It's hard to identify just one most memorable or exciting part - everything was amazing. The culture, the people, the food, the scenery, the transportation. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. (more)Garry Radford

The opportunity to see so many varieties of flora and fauna in their native environment, the opportunity to swim with penguins and sea lions, and the wonderful array of settings in which to view all. (more)Van Schwiebert

Albania walking holiday
From
£1,029
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The walk Theth to Valbona is tough, but worth the effort Tips? Berat is worth a visit, but takes up a lot of travel time Local benefits?

An excellent introduction to Albania, a country that more should visit, with a very knowledgeable Albanian tour leader (more)Bob Handley

Sri Lanka highlights holiday
From
£1,698

Memorable parts? Difficult to choose one - probably the visit to Sigiriya rock - unlike anything I have seen anywhere else.

Make the most of any opportunities to look around, take part in things, talk to the local guide to tell them what you are interested in.

Bali holidays, rice terraces & beaches
From
£1,238
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole holiday was fantastic, I really liked the Hindu temples at Prambanan, the carving are so well preserved and its just beautiful, make sure you have enough time to look at the smaller temples as well. This is even better than Borobudur and 2 hours is not really enough. Tips? Dont miss mount Bromo, the sunrise is spectacular and while we were waiting there was fantastic lightning storm around some more distance mountains. But it does get very cold and you... (more)Jonna Law
Painting holiday in Moroccan desert

From

excluding flights
Visiting the NGOs, cycling out of Phnom pehn, fighting through sand in the midday sun, cycling through rice fields, conquering a 20k mountain climb or cycling into the chaos of Saigon/ hoi chi mihn? Too many to mention wonderful memories.... (more)Charlie Stockford
Very hard to pick just one element of the trip, it was all memorable. Cycling through Vietnam and Cambodia gives you a chance to immerse yourself in local life in a way that travelling by any other means would have been impossible. We cycled well off the beaten track, through villages and paddy fields, along dirt tracks and local paths. We ate incredible local, fresh food and visited some fascinating places on the rest days. (more)Ali Kenny
Morocco Atlas & Sahara 4WD tour
From
US $2,600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole trip was memorable and exciting. We experienced the Sahara in all it's glory, the majestic High Atlas, gorges, high mountain passes and tiny villages where the local people live and work in the fields as they have done for centuries. The itinerary was full of highlights. The time spent in the desert was particularly memorable. Most tours take you to the edge of the Sahara late in the day so you can 'overnight' there and then you are taken back to 'civilisation'... (more)Marilyn Wane
