It was FABULOUS (more)Lesley Fowler
The peaceful, unspoilt village with spectacular views. The friendliness and warmth of our hosts, their local knowledge and their pride in their local area. (more)Kay Boshier

Umbria cooking vacation, Italy
From
€1,190
excluding flights
The most memorable was the location and the kindest of attention shown. The service was so personalized which distinguishes this trip from many others I have had. (more)Simone Micallef
There are a number of memorable things - the house and it's very peaceful location, Marina and Gianlucca's hospitality; perhaps extra special were the cooking lessons in their superb kitchen followed by some excellent meals with great company. (more)Kevin Fidler
Do it. You will love it. (more)Ruth Kirkby
South Indian food tour, Kerala
From
£1,473
excluding flights
Memorable parts? As this was our first time in India, all the places were memorable for their own reasons. Even our first experience of the traffic was 'exciting' We had an excellent driver/guide who was able to offer a lot of help. Tips? This is also the first time of staying in different places. With hindsight I would have dramatically reduced the amount of clothes we took and used the laundry service. Local benefits? Absolutely. We knew the homestays supported local... (more)Karen Dickinson
Mexico small group vacation, a food adventure
From
US $1,517
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This was a food trip, and the food was fantastic. Our great guide, Fernando, took us to street food, markets, and restaurants--more than I expected. The cities of Puebla and Oaxaca are beautiful. For me high points were the markets and Monte Alban. Tips? 1) Check the exact date you are going. We happened to be on the one trip that started at a different hotel, and there was confusion. 2) Now there is an overnight bus from Oaxaca to Zipolite (apparently soon... (more)Nancy McCormick
Umbria cooking and painting vacation, Italy
From
€890
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This was my first trip to Italy, and as they say, first impressions do make lasting impressions. And Umbria was the right blend of beauty, serenity, culture and great cuisine. As a solo traveler, I basically wanted a relaxing break with some fun activities and learning too. I got all that and more with the Cooking and Painting vacation that I booked through Responsible travel, based at Podere le Olle in Umbria. I totally loved the experience, made especially memorable by... (more)Ambika Thandavan
French Riviera vacation, with morning yoga
From
€805
excluding flights
Memorable parts? For me, staying at the hotel has re-written the rule book on the group activity vacation - something I have avoided up until now, as I have never wanted to spend 24/7 with a random group of people or be tied to a strict, laminated schedule. Everything about the week I spent in Saint-Jeannet surpassed my expectations. The accommodation was cosy and comfortable (and if you book a balcony room, I challenge anyone to find a better view!), the excursions were flexible, interesting... (more)Ali James
Cooking and walking vacation, Spanish Pyrenees
From
€1,295
excluding flights
EXCEPTIONAL. Exceeded my expectations on so many levels. From the quality of accommodation and attention to detail with all aspects of the week . (more)Deb Mickle
Breathtaking canyon walks far exceeding my imagination. Not forgetting having the experience of a lifetime as two Lamagayers (bearded cultures with 3metre wingspan) glided past me just a couple of metres away. Amazing. (more)Clare Cotton
India small group vacation, a food adventure
From
US $1,917
excluding flights
Excellent. Pancham our guide was great too. (more)Alison Pick
How would you rate your vacation overall? One of the best (more)Mick Sanders
Most memorable was undoubtedly visiting the Taj Mahal, although the journey on the overnight train was a close, but completely contrasting, second. (more)Sarah Memery
Sri Lanka small group tour, a food adventure
From
US $2,010
excluding flights
A most enjoyable experience, getting much closer to the local culture than a standard trip. (more)Andrew Jackson
The most memorable was either the natural beauty of Sri Lanka or our outstanding guide, Bala. My vacation was amazing. I am very glad I chose the tour I did and providence gave my group such a wonderful guide. (more)Naomi Day
The most memorable moment was the train journey through the tea hills and the Botanical Gardens in Kandy. (more)Bernice Gunn
Cambodia small group tour, a food adventure
From
US $1,246
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
Sicily yoga and cooking vacation, Italy
From
€1,765
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Vsit to a fish market with a chef, then cooking the fish in his restaurant. Tips? get fit and read some local history. Local benefits? Made a financial contribution to several small family busineses Overall rating? One of the best I have taken. (more)Ian Leeper
Vietnam small group vacation, a food adventure
From
US $1,781
