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

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

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
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)
Sri Lanka vacations, tailor made
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

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...

From £2195 including UK 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 - £1645 including UK 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

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

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

We really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa – the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. (more)Michelle Christensen
Absolutely lovely. It is probably a huge cliche but seeing the children laughing and playing by themselves and with new friends meant I was more relaxed - it all just ticked over perfectly and resulted in a great vacation. (more)Kate Macnab

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
