I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Sri Lanka tour & beach vacation
From
£2,125
including UK flights
It was all exciting really from the beautiful beachside hotels to the wildlife parks. At Palagama beach the food was amazing especially when I was shown their own vegetable garden and we picked fresh vegetables that were cooked as individual curries for my dinner that evening. I felt as if I had been away for at least a month - I had seen and done so much in that two weeks. (more)Susie Barrett
Excellent trip (more)Melanie Michel
There were many memorable moments - we loved the incredible bird life especially seeing them close-up in the bird sanctuary. (more)Gabi Tubbs

From
£2,595

So many highlights. It was wonderful to see such a variety of lemurs, chameleons and other wildlife (including a fossa!)... It may have been the best trip of my life. (more)Lorena Sutherland
An excellent vacation, one of my best for many years.... I shared the vacation with wonderful group of co-travelers, who all gelled and got along from day one. The nature and wildlife of Madagascar were fantastic, discovering new things and creatures on a daily basis. I would totally recommend this trip to any nature lover. (more)David Ward
Wonderful tho' it was to see wildlife in natural habitate, the standout thing for me was the wonderful people I met and catching a glimpse into their customs and cultures. (more)Stephanie Diggon
Maldives luxury resort
From
US $2,999
per couple per week
Memorable parts? Snorkelling with Manta Rays. You need to be a very strong swimmer to get in the sea with the Mantas as they move very quickly. You also need to be confident with your snorkelling equipment as you will need to get it on/off very quickly. The marine biologist who co-ordinated the trip is very supportive and gives you lots of advice on how to be in the water. Tips? The Maldives is an expensive destination so you need to factor this into your vacation spending budget.... (more)Elayne Farmer
Sri Lanka and Maldives vacations
From
£3,590
including UK flights
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
Beach vacation & tour in Sri Lanka
From
£2,495
including UK flights
The most memorable moments were was the beautiful scenery, the exciting wildlife, the friendly people and delicious food. Absolutely fantastic! Everything was perfect from the initial booking with our tour operator, the superb accommodation and the planned activities and safaris. (more)Catherine Huzzey
Whale Watching and Wildlife Safari was the most memorable part of this trip (more)Phil Miller
The accommodation 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. (more)Ruth Le Guen
Madagascar in depth, small group tour
From
£2,799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Tsingy was brilliant really would have liked to stay there longer which is what could be said of all the places we visited. A really great country to visit. Tips? Be prepared for some long drives and get fit as the walks are terrific but you need to be up to doing them. Local benefits? I'm sure it helps local people and conservation reducing environmental impacts is debatable. Overall rating? Extremely good I could not have done myself, very well... (more)Barry Theobald
Maldives holiday, local accommodation
From
US $499
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We experienced the real Maldives, met local people and learnt about their kindness and dignity. We accepted their costumes and in exchange they showed us beautiful places. Often the local beach in the island was exclusively for us. Islands and the sea are amazing, every snorkel, dive or boat trip is a magic surprise. Tips? Be ready to accept what is offered to you and to abide to local rules, no fancy clothing required, water activities will take up most of your time.... (more)Veronica Vigano
Trekking and rafting expedition in Madagascar
From
US $2,295
excluding flights
There were too many wonderful experiences to pick out just one as the most memorable or exciting! Some of the many highlights for me included: seeing so many different kinds of lemurs and chameleons; the extraordinary limestone Tsingy...... (more)Catherine Nursaw
Excellent... witnessing the Indri lemurs calling to each other in the trees in front of us and rafting the river rapids were probably my top two memories (more)Kerry Abbiss
Everything, perhaps taking the freight train at 2am alongside mountains of bananas. From the point of landing to our sad farewells it was an unforgettable adventure...Unforgettable. (more)David Phillips
South Africa & Mauritius holiday
From
£3,135
including UK flights
Standing on the viewpoint at Amboseli with the wetlands, plains and Kilimanjaro made us feel that we were in one of the most beautiful places in the world. (more)Ian Halliwell
We loved all of it, but seeing so many wild animals up close was wonderful. (more)Jill Mentch
Seychelles vacation, a Creole experience
From
£2,299
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing an eagle ray whilst snorkelling. Seeing wildlife close up on Cousin Island. Tips? Choose an hotel with a good beach, there are plenty of them and make sure you go to La Digue island. Local benefits? I hope so, we used local shops, and hired bycycles and used the local buses. The visit to Cousin hopefuly gave money to support the conservation here. Overall rating? Excellent, sunshine nice people, beautiful and quiet beaches everywhere. (more)David Williams
Madagascar family adventure holiday
From
US $2,895
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hearing Indri lemurs call out to each other in the forest, and then seeing them above our heads! Tips? Be relaxed - sometimes you will see things, sometimes not - the national parks are not zoos. Be prepared - sometime there will be no electricty, usually there willbe no wifi, no clothes washing facilities unless you do it yourself in the shower....Madagascar is a very poor developing country, you can't expect things like at home, but keepan open mind and enjoy the...

Madagascar tailor made tour
From
£1,888
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Very difficult to say. Spotting lemurs in the forest is certainly memorable but is that any better than the unique rock formations of the Grand Tsingy or the sheer pleasure of watching country life as you drive between reserves? The whole fortnight was memorable. Tips? Be prepared to start early in the morning when the lemurs are more active. We did so and saw much more than some other groups in our hotels who set off later and came back disappointed. You need... (more)Stephen Osgerby
Tailor made wildlife tour of Sri Lanka
From
£1,970
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Gal Oya National Park, where just the two of us and our guides were able to watch 5-6 different herds of elephants quietly feeding approximately 300 m away. We were the only people present and we did not disturb the animals; furthermore, we did not feel rushed but were able to simply enjoy the experience. Wasgamuwa National Park was also worth visiting; this park is not well-frequented by tourists and so the guides and drivers seemed to genuinely value our presence there.... (more)Laura Ruykys
Maldives on a shoestring, small group tour
From
£749

One night I stood in the shallow waters and stingrays washed over my feet and we saw a large school of dolphins going past, followed closely by a logger head turtle and then some sharks! (more)Anne Hazzard
The most memorable part was the candle lit dinner + sunset on the tiny sandbank island...Very enjoyable. (more)Robert Linsky

Southern Madagascar holidays, Lemurs, baobabs & beaches
From
US $2,595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the vacation was visiting the National Parks in Madagascar. Tips? Beware of the tour description because it's deceiving. For example, day 4 of my tour was described as: "We will set off early this morning towards Antsirabe (via Tana)... Once in Tana, the journey takes approximately 3+ hours on a good, windy road." Well, the reality is that the road has sections in such bad condition that the car could go no faster than 10 miles per hour,... (more)Alex Carballo-Dieguez
