Going over the sand dunes and staying in gers or in tents in what seemed to be in the middle of nowhere and then a herd of goats and sheep comes along. (more)Josephine Tanti
Climbing the 'Singing Sand Dunes' (Khongoryn Els) at sunset was amazing! It was a big effort to make it to the top, but we were rewarded with once-in-a lifetime views over the vast sand dunes and Gobi Desert while mother nature turned on a spectacular pink and purple hue. (more)Lynette Smith

The peace and tranquillity of this beautiful valley was stunning.

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

From
£1,255

Absolutely delightful, I never came back from a holiday more relaxed. The weather, of course was a bonus, but the perfect organisation made all the difference. (more)Gerhard Kordmann
We enjoyed it all but going to to the Merry Cemetry at Sapanta was interesting also Viscri where Prince Charles has bought a home. He has helped the village and it was great going to the woods on a horse drawn cart to the brick maker and learning about his craft. (more)Sue Beckingham
For anyone with an interest in this part of Romania, with its unique history, unusual ecclesiastical architecture, and its customs and traditions, and who may be considering a holiday there, I can recommend this 10 day group tour by mini-bus with almost no reserve. (more)Rodney Mount

Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan small group tour
From
£2,599
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The part of the trip in Svaneti. Tips? Its a good trips and they should book it Local benefits? It benefitted local people in The Svaneti region because it creates work. Overall rating? I will give it 4 stars because the guide in Azerbaijan didn't speak English very well. He didn't understand our questions and could answer something completly wrong which proved that he hadn't understood the question. (more)Lars Leibnitz

Memorable parts? The doable yet challenging (for me) walks combined with cultural learning. Experiencing the remote villages, lifestyle and food in local accommodation.

Pack light, take a hat and a good pair of boots and be prepared to soak up a the traditional culture and the magnificent vistas Romania has to offer. Local benefits? I would like to think it did via the local accommodation... (more)Helen Wildash

Santo Antao walking holidays, Cape Verde Islands
From
£733
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The hiking in Santo Antao is outstanding. The scenery is spectacular and the paths are generally pretty good with the locals always ready to lend a hand when you get lost. The local transfers of bags and hikers was generally very reliable (couple of minor issues but nothing more than we expected). The local "agent on the ground" was very good and Deborah did more than could be expected to help us to get sorted out after our delayed start. The accommodation was of a reasonable... (more)Pauline Knowler
Bulgaria self guided walking holiday
From
£564
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing all the beautiful wildflowers. May was a wonderful time of year to be there. Also the very warm welcome we received from local people in the smaller villages. Tips? You need to be aware that the trekking company in Bulgaria promotes the opportunity for solo travellers to save costs by travelling with a couple who've already booked. As you are mainly staying in very small places if someone else books the same dates you are likely to end up spending every evening... (more)Ruth Bradshaw
