Central America overland tours
From
£2,057
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Fantastic insight into many different cultures. Stunning and varied scenery in wonderful hot weather from the might of the Panama Canal to the jaw dropping beauty of the rain and cloud forests to the awesome splendour of the region's volcanoes and craters Tips? Do as much research as possible before your trip - I wished I had done more! Try and learn some basic conversational Spanish - I wish I had learnt more! Local benefits? Tourism is an infant business... (more)Douglas Newlands
Cambodia vacations, including Angkor
From
US $1,300
excluding flights
Because we were a small group, we were able to change the itinerary and instead of visiting one of the main temples, we went 'off the beaten track' and travelled to a temple way out of Siem Reap without any tourists there. It really felt like we made our own discovery! (more)Thamar Smit
Tourism is an important employer in Cambodia so our staying in small hotels and using local guides, river boats, the bamboo train etc were all supportive. (more)Andrew Whitrow
Fantastic window into cambodia. we needed a few days on a thai beach to assimilate it all. (more)Anna Bradley
Indochina overland tour, Saigon to Angkor
From
US $1,950

Joining crowds of people and the sense of anticipation felt when waiting for the sunrise over Ankor Wat. Being taught to create and cook my own wrap was the most memorable part of the vacation (more)Sara Page

Central America tour on a shoestring
From
US $1,853
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Roatan, one of the bay Islands of Honduras, was beautiful and the diving was fantastic, and I'll probably never forget the chicken buses! Tips? If you're used to traveling independently then be prepared to find the lack of freedom quite restricting, however it is great not to have to worry about transport and accommodation! Local benefits? I feel that it benefitted local people as wherever possible we patronised local businesses and shops, and as far as is... (more)Victoria Baynes
Burma cultural tour, Yangon and Mandalay
From
£3,195
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Coming across by chance a house warming and monk blessing in village house on an island near Bagan. We were invited into the upstairs room for the ceremony and then back to join them for the celebratory lunch afterwards. Tips? Look into the wide variety of options for sight seeing and experiences away from the main tourist route. It's all very safe; extremely interesting and the people are very welcoming. Local benefits? Yes I think so. We used local companies... (more)Jacqueline Scott
Maasai Mara safari camp in Kenya
From
US $70
per person per night
Memorable parts? Arriving in the village - the warmth of the welcome, the pleasure of staying in a manyatta (mud hut). Also the activities are wonderful - walks amongst the zebra, milking cows, firing bows and arrows, lighting fires. Really good fun!! Tips? I went for 4 nights - 2 in the camp and 2 in the village. The camp is great - paraffin lamps, good food and comfy beds. You can get the lie of the land and start to get to know your hosts. But don't miss out on staying in the village... (more)Helena Smith
Cambodia highlights tour, 7 days
From
£1,000
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The sites I visited in Cambodia were spectacular, and being able to just relax knowing that my tour operator was looking after everything was so valuable for me. They made me feel truly immersed in the local environment, food, people in a very short time (1 week) and I loved my tuktuk trips just taking in the scenery. Tips? Trust the tour operator choices for food and sites to visit. People who usually manage their own trips (like me) may tend to be drawn to tourist... (more)Andrea Vogel

From
£1,299

The scenery is stunning, and hiking with a local guide allows you to be immersed with the local culture, from chatting with the farmers, watching local sports competitions, or sharing a meal. A very authentic experience! (more)Renee Summers
Climbing to the Tiger's Nest is a must do and see. Nothing can prepare you for the sight of the Temple appearing out of the mist/clouds. (more)Roisin McArdle
Wonderful country to visit. The people are so friendly, the air fresh and the scenery stunning. Also the Paro Festival was such a colourful affair and fascinating to observe how important it was to the locals. (more)Pamela Cranston
Burma highlights tour
From
US $1,965

The country is incredible – it’s beautiful, the people are friendly, the history is astounding…. We did and saw so much – I cannot pick my best highlight as it’s impossible to choose just one. I was also very fortunate to have a wonderful group to share the experience with. (more)Lorna Marsh
The most memorable parts were the visit to Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon on the final day - the culmination of a feast of sights and experiences packed into a fairly hectic schedule. (more)Andy Jackson
Festivals and vacations in Ethiopia
From

This was a wonderful way to see the beauty of Ethiopia, its warm friendly people and to experience one of it's best known festivals in an idyllic rural community setting. The guide was outstanding in her knowledge of the country and was proactive...A traveling group vacation cannot get better than this. (more)Anne Cooper

Hanoi to Da Nang tour in Vietnam
From

Memorable parts? Sitting in a restaurant in Hoi An overlooking the river at night; Trying local dishes at each place we visited. (Try the Hue pancakes!) Walking around Hoi An's old quarter. Visiting the My Son ruins early in the morning to get there ahead of the heat and other tourists. (The itinerary showed that visit as an afternoon trip but the guide suggested we go early in the morning which was a great idea and meant we had it almost to ourselves.) Tips? Take the opportunity...
