Sri Lanka tour & beach vacation
From
£2,125
including UK flights
It was all exciting really from the beautiful beachside hotels to the wildlife parks. At Palagama beach the food was amazing especially when I was shown their own vegetable garden and we picked fresh vegetables that were cooked as individual curries for my dinner that evening. I felt as if I had been away for at least a month - I had seen and done so much in that two weeks. (more)Susie Barrett
Excellent trip (more)Melanie Michel
There were many memorable moments - we loved the incredible bird life especially seeing them close-up in the bird sanctuary. (more)Gabi Tubbs

Sudan vacation
From
£2,199
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The visit to Meroe. Mind blowing! The pyramids in the daytime WOW, but even better at sundown. A very big shame that there were no G&T`s to go with the atmospheric feeling of history. When you stay in tent city, it`s fantastic with the night sky and no light pollution. Eating and sleeping, with the stars, all around you, then you have arrived in paradise.If you are lucky to go on this trip and have Kahlid as your guide, then you are in for a treat.If you think the desert...

Iraq Kurdistan vacation
From

However the scenery in the mountains, the Kurdish people and the many historic and cultural site were all interesting and memorable. Tips? The more you have read about the area first the more I think you get from the trip. Be prepared to be flexible and enjoy it as it comes. Local... (more)Jenny Maddick

Mexico small group vacation, culture & beach
From
US $1,340
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The hubbub of Mexico City and all the sights and museums within (we could only sample a few, regretfully!); and the laid back charm of San Cristobal with its streets, processions and central plaza activities. Tips? - Be ready for temperature variations - from cold/nippy to warm/hot! - For vegetarians, be ready for limited eating options; - for those who haven't had Mescal in the past, don't be worried - it tastes great, as do the salted and fried crickets served...

From
US $1,480

My most memorable part of my vacation was my visit to The Pyramids of Giza, Abu Simbel and Karnak Temple. Part of the reason I consider my entire trip memorable is because of my tour guides. (more)Mary Lyons
Most memorable? I think the Pyramids at Giza and the paintings in the tomb of Ramses I, or perhaps it was the gold mask of Tutankamun, or was it the statue of Ramses II at Memphis... it was always a jaw-dropping moment at each place we visited. (more)Amanda Bristow
Miracle of the Sun Egypt tour
From
