    I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
    Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
    Very enjoyable
    It was OK
    A bit disappointing really
    Jordan vacation, a week in Jordan
    From
    US $1,335
    excluding flights
    The most memorable moment was Petra (of course) and the camel ride at Wadi Rum (it is an optional but well worth it!). Our local tour leader was excellent (knowledge of history and kept us entertained during our bus journeys), the group blended well (the best so far), trips well organised and plenty of shopping opportunities. (more)Hely Collie
    There was so many memorable moments. Trying to stand up in the Dead Sea it is nearly impossible for your feet to find the bottom so you end up bobbing like a cork! Walking down the canyon to Petra but also going up on the long way to the place of sacrifice. The amphitheatre in Amman. The call to prayer echoing across the city from the mosques is a wonderful musical recitation. (more)Geoffrey Leigh
    The most memorable moment was Petra. The wonder of the world. (more)Anil Kashyap
    Mongolia adventure vacation
    From
    US $2,728
    excluding flights
    Amazing. Trip of a life time.....The amazing landscapes were very memorable as were the Mongolian people and their culture. The wild camp sites were a huge highlight of the trip. (more)Paula Ridge
    It was fantastic, with excellent local interaction with the families who owned the Ger Camps, fab views and an idea of the vastness of the country/ steppes. (more)Kathleen Culliton
    The landscapes, the animals, the people, the small group we were traveling with: it all was just right and made for a mind-blowing vacation. (more)Sophie van het Erve
    Uganda wildlife and activity vacation
    From
    £2,490
    excluding flights
    The whole trip was marvellous. The white water rafting very memorable, safari drives and river trips great but if I have to choose the most memorable thing it would of course be the gorilla trekking followed closely by the chimpanzee trekking. A wonderful vacation and well looked after by Alex our driver and guide. (more)Christin Monson
    The most memorable part of the vacation was the mountain gorrilas - great trek into the mountains spending over an hour with the gorillas. The scenery was stunning which topped off the experience. (more)Kate Cullen
    This was the perfect trip: great places, great people, good value for money. We couldn't have wished for anything more. (more)Sabine Mosch
    Small group adventure vacation in Uganda
    From
    £1,600
    excluding flights
    The entire vacation was memorable. There are countless experiences that I will always remember. Having the opportunity to track and then spend an hour with the mountain gorillas was perhaps the most memorable. (more)Robert Roberto
    Spotting the Gorillas in The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was the most memorable part...I travelled alone and as a 50 something year old female felt totally at ease throughout the trip. (more)Kathy Hammond
    Japan culture tour, Shoguns & Samurai
    From
    US $4,520
    excluding flights
    Experiencing such a different culture and all things Japanese was the best. Excellent. Fumiko was a very helpful, informative and patient guide. We saw amazing temples, landscape etc. (more)Janet Barwell
    The whole thing was tremendous - felt we got a real insight into Japan today and in the past....One of the best vacations we have been on - very well planned to give a varied taste of the Japanese culture. (more)Anne Cooper
    The most memorable part of the vacation was getting a bit of an insight into the people and culture of everyday Japan by traveling on local trains and buses and staying in local inns in rural areas rather than faceless hotels. (more)Nicola Lindsey
    Cooking and cultural vacation in the Spanish Pyrenees
    From
    €1,295
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Hiking in the fresh air of Spanish Pyrenees and being up close to many of the endangered lammergeier, or bearded vultures, soaring near the cliffs. There were a couple of times when we watched groups of three or four of these birds riding the thermals. Tips? Bring a pair of good, newish boots! One of my boot's sole separated on the first day of walking. Simon, one of he hosts, and I glued and taped it up for the next outing, however the sole from the second boot... (more)Ross Gould
    Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania vacation
    From
    US $1,545

    Memorable parts? Historic cities, interesting and often tragic histories and natural beauty in the landscapes. Lots of insights into the more recent past of the Cold War also. Tips? Be prepared for a fascinating time, and take good walking shoes as you may cover a lot of ground! Local benefits? Local people benefited from our tourism via hotels, restaurants , markets and local guides. We were all environmentally aware. Overall rating? Really fantastic! I learned... (more)Fiona BELL
    Uganda wildlife vacation
    From
    £1,980
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? I was able to get up close and personal with the Mountain Gorillas. A very special memory... Tips? Understand the level of physical activity and potential minor discomfort you will encounter so that you can be prepared. Little things like bringing appropriate footwear, gloves, camera equipment that can bear rough treatment, all of this is good to know before you start the tour. Local benefits? Yes, I stayed in environmentally-friendly/ minimum footprint accommodation,... (more)Andrew Parker
