Chile adventure holiday
From
£4,049
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
Malaysia holiday, 14 days
From
£1,028
excluding flights
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

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
Wow there were so many highlights. Snorkelling in the Red Sea, floating in the Dead Sea, camel ride in the desert, picnics of pita bread/hummus/tomatoes/cheese/olive oil/falafel and Petra. (more)Ellen Cohen
Small group adventure holiday to Patagonia
From
£3,528

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.

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

Cambodia small group tour, a food adventure
From
£855
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
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

Iran small group tour, Journey to Persia
From
£2,899
including UK flights
Memorable parts? The stunning architecture. Tomb of Darius. Meeting the Iranian people. Tips? Try not to fall asleep between cities. You'll miss so much. Local benefits?

Vietnam holiday, South to North
From
£1,415
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many, I would pick Ninh Binh as a fantastic example of Vietnamese landscape. My kids would probably pick the Vespa adventures tour in Ho Chi Min City and my wife the Surnise Hotel in Hoi An. Tips? 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 stunning views at the Valbone pass and the boat trip was the most memorable. (more)Rachel Dixon
Swimming in the Blue Eye and walking over the pass from Theth to Valbona. I loved the holiday, the only down side was that perhaps we tried to pack in too much for the short time we had available. (more)Eleanor Dunn
An excellent introduction to Albania, a country that more should visit, with a very knowledgeable Albanian tour leader (more)Bob Handley

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

Memorable parts? Meeting with our Omani guides and getting so much information from them. Staying in the most amazing hotel- alila hotel, jebel akhdar with stunning architecture. Scenery, views and walking were amazing. Tips? Good cover for women at the mosques but otherwise fairly relaxed for westerners. Local benefits? Some local people, not sure who owned hotels. Mass tourism does not reduce environmental impact, nor does it support conservation however hard we try. The... (more)Anne Tunwell
