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 €650 - €800 excluding flights
Croatia activity vacation for families
Great. We had a wonderful time. Beautiful places, friendly people, lots of variety and great food...the highlight for us was the trip to a farm one evening whilst staying on one of the islands, where we ate lots of fantastic local food, sampled homemade spirits and had a bit of a sing-song. (more)Naomi Foster
Amazing. Definitely recommend it....White water rafting was amazing. So scary but loads of fun. The guides were all brilliant, very knowledgable and funny. (more)Jennifer Kewley
Excellent. We have visited Croatia and done activity weeks before but this was the best yet - a great blend of different (more)Alan macdonald
From €699 excluding flights
Family sea kayaking vacation in Croatia
Wonderful...Swimming in the sea caves, the farmhouse dinner...So many happy meals. The silence of kayaking even in a group. Discovering footpaths leading to beautiful rocky places to swim...Too many good memories to have only one favourite! (more)Alison Acton
It was brilliant. The 3 other families in our group were great fun. The guides were really good and worked very hard to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The island of Lopud is idyllic. We will certainly be back! (more)Hannah Whibley
Most memorable? The peaceful islands, the warm, clear waters and the relaxed approach... Absolutely fantastic, I only wish it could have lasted longer. I really could not fault the operator. (more)Kate Holloway
From €615 excluding flights
Family activity holiday in Turkey
Excellent...the guides could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We had a wonderful time. (more)David Scanlon
It was good to go with a local travel company rather than a group one. We have recommended it to lots of friends. So many good memories and hard to pinpoint anything. The accommodation was lovely and felt like we were staying with an extended family rather than employees. (more)Kate Fox Evans
A rewarding and life affirming experience...Canyoning was particularly memorable as it provided a wonderful opportunity to explore the landscape, scenery and wildlife, as well as a balance of challenge through rock scrambling and chill time plunging in refreshing rock pools. (more)Kim Smith
From £465 - £499 excluding flights
Slovenia activity vacation for families
Although we had poor weather for the first two days the guides rearranged our activities to ensure that we were still able to complete the planned itinerary, so you always felt that your vacation mattered to them. It was a great experience in a safe, organised environment...top class! (more)Peter Suddaby
Facing my fear of being submerged in the kayak training was the most memorable! Our vacation had a good mix of action and relaxation. We were very impressed by the many kindnesses, thoughtfulness and fun offered by the Maya team and the hotel staff. (more)Anne Lindsey
Canyoning - descent on ropes down a 27m waterfall was the most memorable part!...Brilliant, but would have loved a more mixed group. (more)Lizzie Munsey
From €799 excluding flights
Portugal yoga & Thai massage vacation
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
Very enjoyable, very relaxing - I got some new experiences and insights! (more)Sabine Kalke
Definitely to be recommended...The combination of Yoga and acupuncture treatments was extremely beneficial and unique and the hosts were caring and thoughtful. The food was fantastic, fresh and plentiful. (more)Katherine Wood
From €650 excluding flights
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 €650 excluding flights
Yoga vacation in Portugal
Wouldn't change a thing! One of the most memorable parts of my vacation was staying in a beautiful odega! Away from the call and drive of modern technology! Secreted in our own romantic stone retreat in the hills of Portugal. (more)Michael Collett
Fantastic...So many highlights - the yoga of course, the food, the treatments and the landscape - and perhaps the relaxed atmosphere fostered by the team. (more)Sinead Mooney
The most memorable part of the vacation were the wonderful people, delicious food, the stunning natural surroundings, warm welcome and the stories shared...Absolutely brilliant! It was better than I could have imagined... (more)Hannah Rees
From €650 - €800 excluding flights
Lake Como family walking vacation, Italy
This was a very well organised vacation, all of its aspects were effective and co-ordinated. In fact a thoroughly enjoyable week. (more)Nicholas Yates
The most memorable part was the whole hiking tour all together, being able to accomplish it as a family, experiencing the local hospitality and unbelievably splendid nature! We´ve had the time of our lives! Found our paradise at Lake Como, and will return, for sure! (more)Jeanette Reinholdtsen
From €615 - €699 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 €650 excluding flights
Volunteering Thailand, wildlife rescue centre
I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. It’s hard to say what was the most memorable part of this vacation as there was so much variety and different experiences, it’s difficult to decide what was the best part of it. (more)Cathy Bisset
I had so many fantastic experiences, and the centre itself was in an idyllic area, on the grounds of a Buddhist temple. One highlight was spotting wild elephants in a nearby national park, after dark. (more)Olly Carney
From £549 excluding flights
Mercantour self catering cottage, France
Amazing 360 degree views on the walks in the Maritime Alps and the relaxed but informative approach of our guide Mel. The gite is very comfortable and well equipped and the food which was prepared by Liz was delicious and varied. (more)Cathy Wiggins
The most memorable part of the vacation was the trip to Col de Fenetre (mountain pass between France and Italy, ca 2400 m ab. s. l.) where we admired numerous chamoises, marmots and even ibexes. (more)Jan Maca
The kind hospitality offered by the landlords...Excellent. (more)Peter Hoen
From £406 per week (sleeps 2)
Auvergne vacation accommodation, France
We really enjoyed the week in the Auvergne it is very unspoilt and it is an area you can "get away from it all"....The area is ideal for walkers or most kinds of outdoor activities. There are lots of waymarked and signposted trails, that range from gentle woodland strolls to full mountain hikes. (more)Phil Smith
The quietness and natural beauty of Mont Dore in November was the most memorable part of the vacation (more)Mary Cherian
Our three teenage children claimed it was the best vacation we've had in years...that's high praise indeed! Relaxed, easy to find something to enjoy in stunning surroundings, with a friendly, quality service offered by attentive hosts. (more)Sarah Brennan
From €29 per person per night
Family activity vacations in Turkey
Fantastic....Everything was memorable, we had a fantastic time. The tubing was great fun and the lazy boat day was the perfect way to start the week. (more)Tracey Podger
So many good bits, but probably tubing and relaxing on platforms over the river afterwards were the most memorable (more)David Netherwood
I would give the vacation 10 out of 10. The activities were suitable for adults and teenagers, and you had the option to either take them at your own pace or push yourself. Personally I enjoyed the Hiking and Mountain biking days the best. (more)Debbie Potts
From £920 - £950 including UK flights
Accommodation in the Mercantour, France
It is the best vacation we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years vacationing in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell
The Alpes-Maritimes and Mercantour National Park is a fantastic area to visit and we would consider this to be one of our best vacations. (more)Lourdes Roffey
We loved the autumn walking in the Parc du Mercantour, in fact our walk to the Lac de Negre was probably the prettiest walk we have ever done. (more)Mary Dracup
From £406 per accommodation per night (sleeps 4-6)
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 £395 excluding flights
Jungle conservation & research, Peru
Memorable parts? Getting to spend time walking through the jungle and seeing so many great animals and birds. The best moments were the tree frogs, manu poison frog and the rainbow boa! I really enjoyed the construction of the bird hides and biogarden even though sometimes it was really hard work! Pancakes for breakfast were great! Tips? There was a lot of walking and physical activity so it’s really important to expect to do lots when you get there and probably need reasonable fitness! Local... (more)Melanie Veal
From £995 excluding flights
South Africa wildlife volunteering vacation
The best part was meeting the elephants and having contact with them. They are such amazing animals and I could spend all day long observing them, which I did even on some of my days off (more)Kim Mackie
An amazing experience that I will never forget and am immensely grateful for! (more)Hugh Quigley
From £829 excluding flights
Volunteer with elephants in South Africa
Amazing! It was my dream to work with elephants. It really was a trip of a lifetime. I learnt so much and made a few great friends out there which I still keep in contact with now. (more)Melisa Dora
The vacation was the most amazing experience and I would definitely recommend it. I had an incredible time working with the elephants, the staff at the Park and the other volunteers. I also had the opportunity to do some fantastic trips and excursions in my free time culminating in a tandem skydive which was amazing! (more)Hannah Grigson
Having the opportunity to interact with the elephants was the most memorable part. (more)Evie Jones
From £797 excluding flights
Galapagos activity holiday
Memorable parts? The SEA LIONS are great encounters. Especially on San Cristobal Island being such close proximity with them on beaches is almost unheard of anywhere else in the world! That is a real specialty of the trip! Walking the Volcano surfaces on Isabel Island was amazing too! Tips? Organised tours don't seem to include the chance to be able to Scooba Dive with the Sea Lions or other sea life, so best to book that separately by extending your vacation by 1 day or skip the... (more)Anni Jancsek
From US $2595 excluding flights
Madagascar rafting expedition
We canoed for two days, negotiated rapids and camped at night on the sandy banks beside the river. The locals were intrigued by these strange foreigners who chose to sleep in tents rather than a hotel but readily came to our rescue when our cooking pots sank to the bottom of the river! (more)Rosemary Llewellin
Most obviously just the many people we met. Everybody says it but it really is true, what a lovely lovely bunch of people to have had the privilege to meet. On the wildlife front, I think the spitting cobra trumped even the komodo dragons! (more)Hayley Fagg
From US $2995 excluding flights
Devon eco lodge accommodation, England
Maggie, joint owner with Ian, took us on a walk through the wet grassland area of special scientific interest. Not only was it interesting from an ecological point of view it was such fun. (more)Jenny Brace
We'll remember the brightness of the stars on clear nights with no light pollution, watching bats flying around our lodge at sunset, waking late because it was so quiet and comfortable and the blackout blinds were so good, the ruby red cows really glowing like rubies at sunset, being content to just potter around the farm in the sunshine without getting bored. (more)Sue Stanwell
The most memorable part were the ...scones on arrival (they were the best I have ever tasted!), walking around the beautiful country side and the farm... (more)Jenna du Plessis
From £250 - £595 per accommodation per week
Rural self catering accommodation near Valencia, Spain
Deep green luscious gorges and mountain scenery. (more)Stephen Brain
The mountains, local environment and seeing an Eagle were the highlights...Self catering cottage looks very comfortable, we had a tour of the cottage, but stayed in the hotel which was equally good. (more)Jacqueline Pennell
From €225 - €275 per person per week
Horse rehabilitation project in South Africa
Memorable parts? Working with experienced people who are always willing to help and teach you Tips? To bring many working pieces of clothes and leave at home fashion dresses Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? Great and fulfilling experience (more)Giorgia Trevisan
From £599 excluding flights
France family activity vacation
Memorable parts? The whole tempo of the vacation was right for our family. Highlights would be the canyoning (I didn't mind the one hour walk up the valley, in a wetsuit, in the boiling sun at all - but I think that I was the exception) and the ambiance of the hotel - Bastide d'Iris. My 8 year old daughter loved horse riding (an extra -c activity) and the pool while my 10 year old boy liked the indy park best. My 11 year old liked the climbing and caving (another extra-c activity). My... (more)Odette Duerden
From £620 excluding flights
Thailand marine conservation and diving holiday
Memorable parts? The diving on Sail Rock, probably one of the best dive sites in the Gulf of Thailand Tips? This is a small village with basic amenities so be prepared to take it easy and relax as there is a lot of down time where nothing is happening. If you get bored easily then make sure you have brought things to occupy your time or better still make an effort to get out and about the island. Local benefits? Not really to the extent that I would have liked, sure spending... (more)Stan Batchelor
From £1096 excluding flights
