Every activity was great - extremely challenging but with great guides who helped us all to succeed (more)Kathy Halliday
The activities were all superbly planned, organised and great fun. White water rafting was enjoyed by all of the family, the scenic mountain walk was enhanced by local species being pointed out for us and information on how the various rock formations occurred. (more)Mary Fretwell
I particularly loved our mountain walk, with spectacular views and carpets of Pyrenean irises, and I think one of the highlights for all of us was swimming in a beautiful mountain lake. (more)Trisha Cochrane

excluding flights
Just go for it - this is a company run by good people and it's a really nice set-up. Tremendous! (more)Richard Marriott

Tres bien! Liz and Mel took good care of us and went above and beyond our expectations to ensure our vacation was great. Good value, too! (more)Holly Evans
The variety of the walks and scenery - and loads of wildlife. Marmot, chamois, vultures, various birds. Level of challenge was set just right for the needs of the group...Great - would do it again! Really good value for money. (more)Patricia Grey

Provence walking tour, France
From
£865
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The food throughout the stay, the choices of hikes (particularly the gorge and the mountain top), and the mix of people. Tips? Be in shape! Be prepared for challenging walks.

French Alps climbing vacation, short break
From
€730
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Reaching the Summit of Dome Des Ecrins at 08:40 on the Sunday morning after leaving the refuge at 04:00am! Overall the experience was great, certainly recommend Bernard's excellent skills at both guiding and pushing you to reach above your goals Tips? Good boots that you know are essential, you'll be working them hard over different terrain, with and without crampons. Stuff to eat while you're on the move or balanced on a snow-field - ideally softer the better - makes... (more)Rebecca Belton
French Riviera vacation, with morning yoga
From
€805
excluding flights
Memorable parts? For me, staying at the hotel has re-written the rule book on the group activity vacation - something I have avoided up until now, as I have never wanted to spend 24/7 with a random group of people or be tied to a strict, laminated schedule. Everything about the week I spent in Saint-Jeannet surpassed my expectations. The accommodation was cosy and comfortable (and if you book a balcony room, I challenge anyone to find a better view!), the excursions were flexible, interesting... (more)Ali James

Birdwatching vacation in France
From
€897
excluding flights
Both my husband and myself loved our week. Lazing by and in the pool late afternoon was lovely and the weather was hot. Being able to walk littlle or miles or not at all, was good -there is no compulsion to be super active, though you can! If you want to be totally catered for and live in verdant peace for a week, but have company too-this is the place for you! (more)Clare McKee
Excellent. It was not a thrills and spills vacation, just a quiet retreat where you are looked after. And if that is what you need, this is a place for you. (more)Tina cook

Horse riding vacation in France
From
€897
excluding flights
A fantastic place which lived up to my expectations. (more)Katherine Amos
Excellent. This is a fine place to stay! With lovely people and surroundings.

Meeting other riders and brushing up my French whilst the instructor brushed up my riding skills! (more)Liz Beaven
Tips for other travelers? Stay an extra week!...Ten out of ten. (more)Sue Evans
Snowshoeing vacation in Chamonix
From
US $1,625
excluding flights
This was our first experience of a winter vacation and snow shoeing, although a challenge to experience the solitude of the high peaks and silent snow fields was amazing. (more)David Knapper
The snowshoe walks on the Alps and the stay at Chalet Savoy were the highlights of this vacation. The walks took us to the top of the world, literally. They were envigorating and the scenery was stunning. (more)Gabriel Decio
Pyrenees winter walking vacation, France
From
US $1,315
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The fantastic group of people that I shared my vacation with... like minded, laugh a minute, make your own fun people! Our free time was even spent as a group, in search of Lucheon's best sledging spots, we were not disappointed! Tips? Don't skimp on your outdoor gear... good gaiters are a 'must have' item and if you're lucky suncream and sunglasses! Local benefits? Our last group activity, on the way to the airport, was a stop off at the local recycling point,... (more)Pippa Purser
Activity vacations in the Pyrenees
From
£915
excluding flights
Enjoyed all the activities, the chalet and food were great and all the guides were very friendly and experienced. Fantastic vacation, would certainly recommend to friends. (more)Jean Elliott

A great itinerary with a chance to try out some activities we wouldn’t normally get the chance to try. (more)Alison Cousland
Vegetarian vacations in France
From
€879
excluding flights
The very friendly and helpful hosts were the most memorable part of the vacation...Both hiking and cycling were enjoyable activities. (more)Helga Hoffmann-Orton
The hospitality of our hosts was most memorable...Look forward to a great vacation in beautiful, secluded locations. (more)Hilary Wight
A wonderfully calming and tranquil vacation rather than an "exciting" one. Should also mention the great hospitality shown by our hosts, delicious home cooked food and generous introductions to local wines and brandies! A lovely relaxing time. (more)Mark McKenzie
Highlights of Provence walking vacation, France
From
US $1,595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Verdon gorges. Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Tips? You have to be able to walk around 15 km a day, and climb up to 500 m a day. Note that the trip notes do not include getting to the starts of the walks. Some of the descents are a little slippy, because of loose stones. You need to be able to carry around 2 litres of water (it gets hot), and you have to buy your own food in the mornings, for picnic lunches. Local benefits? Yes, the guide is local, as are... (more)David Appleton
Mont Blanc climbing vacation
From
US $2,990
excluding flights
Climbing was the most memorable part. (more)Gunvor Leirbukt
Memorable: 1.Training in the stunning beautiful mountains - Trient Glacier. 2. The views on the climb up and down from Mont Blanc summit, including sunrise Exciting - the scramble up to the Gouter Refuge. (more)John Hehir
I think the attempt to reach the summit of Mont Blanc and in spite not having made it due to bad weather conditions it was still nice to have been to the Dome de Gouter. Other moments were the stunning landscapes. (more)Peter Koopmans
