Yoga & relaxation vacation in Portugal
It was amazing and fabulous and life changing. One of the best vacations I have ever been on, I just wish it could have been longer!! (more)Rosy Everitt
This would be a perfect and highly recommendable vacation if you're: interested in nurturing your mind and body by yoga and healthy tasty food...The love and warmth of the Winter family made you directly feel at ease and at home. The yoga classes were of good quality and inspiring. Loved the silent walks in the morning. (more)Jasmijn Visser
So many memories and amazing times. Probably the most exciting was swimming in fast flowing rivers and waterfalls around the house! ...A brilliant vacation and I'd definitely go back. (more)Laura Chan
From €700 - €850 excluding flights
Catalonia family mountain biking & activity vacation, Spain
Memorable parts? The atmosphere. The amazing biking. The friendliness of the Spaniards and our hosts. The excellent food. Tips? Make sure you research all there is to do so that you can take advantage of exactly what you like best. The region, in close proximity to Mas Pelegri, is absolutely full of incredible things to do, especially sporting activities. We were full to the brim AND we'd have liked to do more research even before going. Local benefits? Yes. By... (more)Jeneva Patterson
From €690 excluding flights
Altiplano de Granada activity vacation, Spain
We enjoyed the treks and had some good time to relax. (more)Hanh Nguyen
It couldn't have been better. A wonderful, wonderful family vacation (children 8 & 9). (more)Lyndsay Turley
We had a brilliant vacation. The food and hospitality were excellent and our hosts were intimately familiar with the language, locality, food, history and culture. The hotel is as off the beaten track as one could imagine and is in a tranquil and scenic setting. (more)David Graham
From €249 - €339 excluding flights
Yoga vacation in Portugal
When a week feels like a month ( in the best possible way), you know you have struck vacation gold! I'm a bit reluctant to tell anyone about them, as I loved it so much I kind of want to keep it for myself! ;) (more)Deirdre O
This vacation was very special and nourished body, mind and spirit. This is what vacations should be like and I would recommend this vacation to anyone looking for something nourishing, peaceful and uplifting. (more)Domini Stone
Very happy...made new international friends. (more)Catherine Haynes
From €700 - €850 excluding flights
Spanish course & hiking vacation, Picos de Europa, Spain
Fantastic - just what I needed! If you want to learn Spanish, go on some great hikes and be truly immersed in Spanish all week (both in school and in the local community) - then book it without hesitation! (more)Hazel Tyror
Everything was local. Used small family run hotel, a local taxi service and a local (and very knowledgeable) mountain guide. Recycling and environmental awareness was encouraged. (more)Linda Mead
A challenging and rewarding week spent learning new skills and meeting warm, friendly people. (more)Cathryn Priestley
From €810 excluding flights
Family activity holiday in Turkey
Fantastic. A wonderful life-affirming experience, thoroughly enjoyed by our whole family (rare, given wide-ranging abilities). I would highly recommend this company and vacation. (more)Lisa Williams
Excellent! Probably the best family vacation we have had. Try it for your self! (more)Angelique Crooks
Excellent...the guides could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We had a wonderful time. (more)David Scanlon
From £475 - £510 excluding flights
Vietnam culture and beach holiday
It was excellent. I would definitely recommend this sort of tour for a first visit. We had never had a guide or arranged tour before so it really made the difference knowing that tours had been prepaid and pick ups and cars had been pre arranged. (more)Val Bodington
Both the visit to the Cu Chi tunnels and the day on the Mekong Delta was the most memorable. (more)Emma Miller
From US $1038 excluding flights
Lapland family winter adventure vacation
Riding the snow mobiles over the most beautiful landscape in Nellim and experiencing the true culture of Finnish Lapland has to be the best, but there were so many things that we loved...other included tours that we did like the husky safari, cross country skiing, snow shoe walking... (more)Brenda Foster
The husky sledding was the most interactive and therefore enjoyable day...We had a very happy and relaxing time. The local activities (Haariniva) guide Jaako was a particularly motivated, able, caring, patient and sensible guy. The hotel facilities and staff were very good. (more)Alastair Deery
The vacation was, quite simply, fantastic and it is difficult to pick "best bits". For me it was simply being outdoors in a very different environment. (more)Elizabeth Johnston
From £1495 including UK flights
Sri Lanka tour & beach vacation
There were many memorable moments - we loved the incredible bird life especially seeing them close-up in the bird sanctuary. (more)Gabi Tubbs
Leopards in Yala were the most memorable part of the vacation (more)Ann Griffiths
We had a great time, we mixed cultural interest with wildlife experience and finished up with a beach flop...The jeep safari to see the elephants in the wild was the most exciting part of the vacation. (more)Elayne Farmer
From £1995 including UK flights
Carmarthenshire self catering cottage in Wales
We had a great time - relaxing, some beautiful experiences (beaches, hills, islands and all the above animals). We were in bed every night by 9.30pm - tired but blissfully comfortable after a day spent exploring. (more)Jayne Obeng
Perfect!....The best thing about the vacation was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a vacation should be. (more)Kirstin Robertson
From £275 - £450 per cottage per week (sleeps 4)
Portugal yoga & massage vacation
Excellent! This is a vacation for people who want or need to offer time to themselves, stepping out of their daily life for a week and literally cleansing their body on every level, whether physically, mentally or spiritually. (more)georgina porro
The holistic integrated nature of it and the range of activities included. Great yoga, treatments, food and classes. I had a wonderful bedroom with a picture window looking out on the valley which raised my mood every time I looked out. It was a little like childhood vacations going to visit family for the warmth of the welcome. (more)Margaret Grogan
From €700 - €850 excluding flights
Cultural vacation in Ethiopia
Go with an open mind and you will have many wonderful surprises (more)Margarita Lytle
very good....rock cut churches of lalibela and tigray, waking up in the crisp cool morning in tigray with the gheralta mtns in clear view, right in front of my room in beautiful gheralta lodge, nice evenings by the lake tana (more)berta pires
There were so many memorable parts of the vacation. Ethiopia's amazing scenery, the rock hewn churches of Tigray and Lalbela, and the Blue Nile Falls; and all the magnificent paintings in their churches. (more)David Evans
From £2250 excluding flights
Sri Lanka vacations, tailor made
First and foremost, it has to be said that Sri Lanka did not disappoint us in any way! We were always greeted with warmth waves and smiles! It has to be one of the friendliest countries I've visited and it was for the most part very clean. (more)Lori Keating
The vacation overall was amazing, there were so many memorable experiences it is difficult to name only one thing. If we had to choose it would have to be turtle watching on Rekawa beach. (more)Jude Lambert
Great!...Sri Lankean nature and food were just amazing. The chefs are real professionals! (more)Heli Aru
From £1755 including UK flights
Thai Massage Course with Yoga in Portugal
The most amazing week away...It has opened my eyes to Yoga and the benefits of massage and Acupuncture. (more)sarah dunnill
A great break from a mad city life. A great combination of people and therapies to recharge...great space for yoga, great teaching. Wonderful massage and acupuncture - totally restorative. (more)Joanna Benn
Excellent...perfect in so many ways. . There is an energy that runs through the place and you feel connected every waking moment; as you find a quiet moment by one of the water pools, or take a walk with one of the dogs, attending a yoga class, enjoying a good night’s sleep. It’s a healing place like no other. (more)sophia Hannay
From €750 - €950 excluding flights
Catalonia family activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? Staying in a welcoming and comfortable hotel in a beautiful part of Spain, with delightful hosts, and masses of available activities. Tips? Stay at here, it's great. Local benefits? Yes, all of the above. We booked several activities with local companies and ate in local restaurants. We were able to travel extensively by bike rather than car. Overall rating? Excellent. We have all returned fit, healthy and happy. (more)Mary Anne Roffs
From €690 excluding flights
Yoga & ayurveda vacation in Portugal
Memorable parts? I had such an amazing time at Yoga at Moses, I don't think I could pinpoint my favourite moment, but the things that stood out the most were: the beautiful morning walks and yoga sessions overlooking the valley, the copious amounts of delicious, nutritious food, with loads of variety at every meal, the completely horizontal feeling of relaxation at Moses and the welcoming and accepting attitudes of the Winter family. Tips? Just come as you are and be open to being... (more)Holly Parker
From €700 - €850 excluding flights
Yoga retreat in Portugal with dance
Fantastic would recommend to everyone...The most memorable part of the vacation was the family that run the retreat. They are so warm, loving and welcoming that it felt like spending a week with family. (more)Rebecca Hones
super great, a big bravo to the Moses team, teachers, benevoles and family, they are the one making it magic ! (more)Sophie Durlot
From €700 - €850 excluding flights
Beach vacation & tour in Sri Lanka
Memorable parts? Walking the Tea Trails in Sri Lanka. The accommodation - Castlereagh Bungalow - was the most luxurious, most welcoming, most helpful place we have ever stayed in; and the walks through the tea estate with idyllic views of the reservoir and surrounding hills, both relaxing and inspiring. Tips? Can't generalise. The aspect we most appreciated of the tour operator was that we said what we personally most wanted from the vacation - in our case, cultural interest, the... (more)Ruth Le Guen
From £2195 including UK flights
Activity vacations in Turkey
Booked a one week package of hiking, mountain biking, canyoning and sea and lake kayaking for two adults and two children (10 and 12 year old boys). We all loved it. (more)Martin Short
Excellent!!!! One of the best!! Hotels staff fab and the tour guides were fantastic too. (more)Karren Probyn
Totally wonderful. Would definitely do another vacation again with this op in Turkey....Organisation behind the scenes exemplary - Julie was always at hand on the end of emails answering our questions promptly. (more)Sue Hodnett
From £475 - £510 excluding flights
Sri Lanka and Maldives vacations
The most memorable part of our vacation was snorkelling in the Maldives. It was amazing to see sharks, fish and sea turtles on the reef. It was a surreal experience...Overall, I would rate our vacation 10/10. We had a great time in all the countries we visited, the locals were very friendly and hospitable. (more)Tracy Watson
Flying in a seaplane over the Maldives and landing in the lagoon by Filitheyo Island where we spent an amazing week was the most memorable part. (more)Greg Harris
Very happy with our vacation, certainly related to the quality of the different guest houses. (more)Tinnes Sebastien
From £3195 including UK flights
Kerala family activity vacation, India
I would thoroughly recommend it. We have no experience of this kind of undertaking and we had an exceptional time that catered perfectly for a family of 4 including an 11 year old girl and 14 year old boy who all valued the tour immeasurably. (more)hugh garling
Absolutely incredible! The children loved it (age 8 and 5) as well as the parents, we had so many rich experiences and wonderful stories to take home. (more)Sarah Bland
Excellent, it was so good. There is nothing I could fault everything met or exceeded our expectations, some of the main highlights were: the homestays, the food, the people, the variety of activities, visiting a local school and orphanage, elephants, the Ayurveda. (more)Juliet Shayler
From £980 excluding flights
Portugal yoga & dance vacation
Memorable parts? Going down to the river and behaving like a hippopotamus.....by this I mean wallowing in the mud. It was not only fun but made the skin feel good too. Tips? Don't worry about what stage you are at in your yoga practice. The teachers are highly skilled and can guide you regardless of your level. I was a beginner and therefore enjoyed the afternoon sessions that focused more on pair yoga. Also buy some of their honey if you can......it is simply divine. Local benefits? Yes,... (more)Janice Thomas
From €700 - €850 excluding flights

Luxury Greek Island vacation
Pretty much perfect!.....The tranquility, the love and care in every detail and the warmth and generosity of our hosts. (more)Michelle Aloof
The wonderful view of the sea from the cottage, and the fantastic swimming in the clearest, blue sea water i have ever seen ... Just go - you will be rejuvenated! (more)Raju Bhatt
The estate is absolutely beautiful and we really did feel at home. Overall - great vacation! The most exciting thing was hiring a boat and exploring and discovering deserted coves in this beautiful, unspoilt island. (more)Francesca Gill
From €2495 - €4950 per week (sleeps 4-6)
Family vacation in Scotland, nature & activity
It was one of the best vacations I spent with my family, truly relaxing. We all feel re-energised, taken care of. (more)Sarah Ghiglino
A very enjoyable vacation particularly for the children who have not stopped talking about it yet... Taking part in the bushcraft activity and watching our grandchildren as they tried wild foods and made fire. The enthusiasm with which they approached every new challenge and the knowledge that they gained is priceless. (more)Frank White
I loved it! It helped the environment and taught you a lot about the area and animals around you. We were kept entertained and had a really fun time - I will always remember this vacation. (more)saskia robinson
From £415 - £750 excluding flights
Family adventure vacation to Turkey
Memorable parts? Day spent gorge walking, then tubing followed by a quick tour of the ancient sites at Patara then a beer and a swim at Patara beach - it doesn't get much better! Tips? You need water shoes to navigate the rocky beaches and particularly if you want to go to Saklikent gorge, which you should. Local benefits? I think the vacation was as responsible as it could be given that any human contact with these ancient sites and natural environments are damaging. I liked... (more)Sally McEnallay
From US $855 - US $1140 excluding flights
Lake District family activity vacation
It was truly amazing and we will definitely be going again....The outdoor activities team were very knowledgeable about the area so we learned lots about the history of the place, and the impact of their work. They were also great at educating the children (and adults) about nature and doing things naturally which we have carried with us. (more)Sandra Hilton
Very enjoyable and offered both something for adults and children. Although you were with a group for activities you could still do your own thing in the evening which meant that it still felt like an independent vacation. (more)Matthew Hawkins
We had a great guide for the week - Simon. Also Ghyll scrambling and rock climbing with the whole family (children from 4 to 19) was special...Great fun. (more)Michele Oliver
From £445 excluding flights

Limassol self catering accommodation in Cyprus
Memorable parts? The tranquil position of our accommodation at Kontoyiannas House in Kalavasos. Set within a pleasant & friendly village in the valley and only minutes drive from one of the loveliest beaches we discovered in Cyprus. Tips? To make the most of the self-catering accommodation including the bbq since the variety of menus in the island's taverns & restaurants is generally very limited. Kontoyiannas House would also be great to rent for a group of families - using all... (more)Nicole Mouton
From €48 - €100 per apartment per night
