Cuban casa holiday
From
£1,298
excluding flights
We had an excellent holiday and so it is difficult to pick out was most memorable, but we did particularly enjoy the horse ride and visit to the tobacco fields and our stay on Cayo Levisa. But we also loved Havana and Trinidad. (more)Richard Patterson
Having designed my own trip, the best aspect was the freedom to spent time doing things on a whim sitting around immersing myself in the less touristy aspects of Cuba, away from the bars and CD-touting bands, instead mixing with the least affluent of the society, meeting fascinating characters and enjoying the music made by people in their own front rooms and doorsteps. (more)Chris Bragg
Horse riding through the tobacco fields in Vinales on Christmas Day was the most memorable. (more)Elizabeth Freeman
Burma sailing holiday, the Mergui archipelago
From

Not knowing anything about the Islands off Burma, or knowing anyone who had been, it was all very memorable our week on the catamaran.

Very varied and well organised with a charismatic and informative tour leader. (more)Phil Walker
The most memorable was the people :-) Especially our fantastic tour guide Indika who went beyond the call of duty and made Sri Lanka come alive. The best run tour we have ever been on. (more)Andrew Fowler

That's difficult as there were so many memorable moments. The zipwire above the cloud forest was a massive adrenalin rush. Helping to plant trees by potting bags of soil was great too and a great bonding moment for the group. (more)Sylvia Kenna
The most exciting part of the holiday was probably the turtle egg laying. (more)Abigail Croydon
All of it was memorable...the wildlife, the scenery, the activities we did, including zipwiring, canyoning and whitewater rafting, our group and group leader and especially the amazing friendliness of the Costa Rican people. (more)Jocelyn Owen

The jungle walk at night and the Perhentian islands was memorable. It was great. I really enjoyed it. We had an amazing guide and we were only a group of 3. Don't know how much different it would be with a bigger group. (more)Bettina Buomberger
Most memorable? Definitely climbing Mount Kinabalu. But very closely followed by the wildlife from orangutans, wild elephants to the sea turtles... Excellent... You should definitely book on this trip! (more)Kirsty Howland

Snorkelling with manatees, sharks and a turtle was pretty special but, in fact, every day on this trip was extraordinary... from volcanoes to markets, Mayan ruins to swimming in hot springs, eating at a Mexican family's home and taking a riverboat trip. Fantastic. (more)Jennie Walmsley
The scenery and people of Guatemala, the warmth of the people and climate of Belize and the excitement and colour of Mayan Mexico. One of the best small group holidays I have ever experienced. (more)Martin Braund

Memorable parts? Seeing the orangutans and elephants in the jungle. Tips? Rainforest trekking can be strenuous in the heat. Would advise stout footwear and poles if at all unsteady. Local benefits? Certainly benefited local people and supported conservation. I worry about the number of plastic water bottles we got through and there is no infrastructure in place for recycling. Overall rating? Absolutely brilliant! The itinerary was was interesting and varied. The 2... (more)Steve Blake

Memorable parts? Snorkelling in a coral reef amongst nurse sharks and other amazing sea life was an experience that we will never forget. Tips? In spite of being by far the oldest couple in the group, we had a thoroughly amazing holiday with an excellent tour leader. Try to pack light. Local benefits? Yes, particularly the homestay which provides an alternate income for families trapped in povery. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Helen Hore
Tanzania Safari and beach holiday
From
£3,295

Memorable parts? Seeing the great migration, thousands of wildebeest crossing a river while making a "snoring" sound. We stayed their watching them for several hours. Wonderful. Tips? Think about the fact that you want to go camping or prefer staying in a lodge. The bathroom-facilities on the camping sites are basic. Local benefits? Our guide was really concerned with respecting the natural habits and behaviours of the animals and he always put this before trying to fulfil... (more)Suzy Mentens

Malaysia tour, Coast to Coast
From
£2,175
including UK flights
Memorable parts? We had some amazing experiences. The most memorable part of the holiday was snorkelling and trying scuba diving in the Perenthian Islands off the East coast of Malaysia. Beautiful scenery, welcoming people and a real chance to recharge the batteries and relax! Tips? This tour is rather 'over guided'. We felt a bit limited and restricted by the tight timetable. Not quite what we expected. Local benefits? Rather disappointing - our rep was Australian, not... (more)Kate Hemming

Memorable parts? There's so many! I was bowled over every time we visited a new temple. The sheer scale of them and the preservation is breathtaking.

Memorable parts? The cookery course at Cooking at Home. The railway and war cemetary at Kanchanaburi, elephant training centre. Time to "chill" Tips? Think about booking an extra night before/after the trip. The hotel in Bangkok is close to the markets of Banglampu and Thawet and the best shopping was in Bangkok. Be prepared for the heat/humidity. Up to 40 degrees in March. However this is a very leisurely trip and most of the accommodation was very comfortable so it was more than... (more)deborah lloyd
East Africa adventure holiday, safari, gorillas & beach
From
£2,869
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Gorilla Tracking was just outstanding. Many other highlights of the tour (camping in the Serengeti, visit of local villages, rafting the Nile) were also great. Tips? Prepare for long truck, bus and jeep rides, bring maybe a sleeping pillow or similar. Mattress is not necessary and a sleeping bag just for two nights, so don't bother to waste too much space for this. Hiking boots for the gorillas are a must. Don't miss out on the Pygmy village!
