From

The sea and land safaris and the Tobermory hotel were all memorable for different reasons, but the one that ran through all of them was the excellent level of customer service. A genuine ten out of ten. (more)Jonathan Huggett
The most memorable was seeing a sea eagle for the first time. Also the train journey from Glasgow to Oban. (more)Louisa Radice

Argentina highlights holiday, 12 days
From
US $2,485
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We did not do a 12 day highlights holiday. Instead we contacted the holiday provider direct and with them planned a 19 day trip. See below for views on this process. As far as memorable experiences, the list is endless. Perito Moreno glacier was amazing to see and hear - it really is blue in parts, and it was well worth paying extra to do the mini-trek. A great experience. So was horse-riding with a gaucho. Hiring a car and doing a 4 night circular tour from Salta was great.... (more)Ro Lynam

From
£955

Memorable parts? We especially loved the second day of our tour, when we climbed the Sigiriya rock fortress in the morning, had a traditional lunch in a village near Habarana and interacted with the villagers in the afternoon, then saw elephants in Minneriya National Park in the evening. It was a perfect combination of everything that Sri Lanka has to offer. We also really enjoyed the campfire dinner at Big Game Camp in Udawalawe National Park. Tips? Check with the tour company what... (more)Roxana Feier

We had three boat trips to see the whales and dolphins. All 3 were great we saw animals every time and different ones each day. The crew were friendly and gave lots of information verbal and written. I was particularly moved by their obvious sensitivity towards the mammals. (more)Linda Hudson

From

Excellent. Great experience....It was all very exciting, but the very best part was when we found a blue whale and a fin whale swimming side by side. This allowed us to clearly see the differences between them - almost as if they were doing it for our benefit. (more)Trish Byrne
The most memorable was Terra Nostra botanical gardens. (more)Maureen Keith

Swimming with dolphins. On our trip we spotted a large pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins (our guide estimated 500) and we slipped into the water and swam with them.

Northern lights and whale watching cruise in Iceland
From
£1,970
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The thrill of such a variety of remarkable landscapes. It was like being on another planet and truly wonderful. Tips? Make sure you know exactly what is paid for. e.g. just because the trips are on the itinerary don't assume they are included. Also I was told of various ways I could get from the airport to the ship and I booked and paid for a return bus but at the last minute was told Pro-Ocean had arranged for pick-up at the airport. A little lack of organisation.... (more)Jeanette Morrison
