Wonderful guides, incredible access to the remotest regions and real people... Wonderful - genuinely the vacation of a lifetime and a never to be forgotten special experience. (more)Dan Cobley
Every day brought new experiences. The animals just kept coming out on cue! Brilliant - I don’t know how we will top it. (more)Monica Szolin-Jones
Most memorable were waking to the sound of a lion killing a wildebeast behind our tent in Amboseli National Park campsite. Singing and dancing with 500 children from a local primary school in Tanzania. (more)Gaenor Morris

Amalfi coast easy walking holiday, Italy
Memorable parts? It is difficult to identify just one part as the whole vacation was wonderful. I think the views from the last two walks were spectacular - Valle delle Ferriere and Sentiero degli Dei. Tips? Be prepared for hundreds of steps but well worth the climb up and down as every view is stunning. Local benefits? Definitely, in the attention to using local restaurants, shops and public transport. Overall rating? It was amazing. June and Aubrey are welcoming,... (more)Hannah Wilson
From £1155 - £1181 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
Umbria cooking vacation, Italy
The cookery course was fun and we made tasty but not too fiddly food, so what you learn you can put to use when you return home. (more)nicola cosgrove
They were the perfect hosts! They always catered for our every need and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was an enjoyable one. We would not hesitate to book this vacation again! (more)Joanne Anagnostu
The location is stunning, Marina and Gianluca make you feel welcome, and they work exceedingly hard to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. We came to learn cookery, but Marina ensures you know about so much more. I can't wait to try some of the recipes we have been taught. (more)Joanne Wilkins
From €1100 - €1200 excluding flights
Mongolia adventure vacation, off the beaten track
Memorable, beautiful, with a bit of challenge [especially for a 75 year old, me] (more)Elizabeth Wingate
The most memorable parts were: Traveling across vast plains in the Gobi, with no roads no buildings no artificial light, and stopping to listen to the silence. The immense blue sky. The generosity and kindness of Mongolians... (more)Alison Cathles

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 €207 - €270 excluding flights
Wildlife sailing holiday in Scotland

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
Sintra Natural Park accommodation in Portugal
5 stars plus! A lovely B&B if you appreciate nature and love to walk. Accommodations and service are outstanding.Hosts very friendly and helpful. (more)Arlene Fleischman
Brilliant, couldn't have asked for more! Great accommodation, very welcoming and helpful hosts. Beautiful countryside with very interesting sites to visit. (more)Elmer van der Hoek

From €70 - €107 per room per night
Extreme activity vacation in Nepal
Brilliant!! The most memorable part has to have been rafting the G4 rapids on the Bhote Koshi with thunder and lightning, rain bouncing off the water and 1.5cm hailstones falling from the sky, still all in 27 degrees heat, wow amazing! (more)Neil Whittemore
I had a brilliant time on this vacation and it fulfilled most of what I wanted to get out of the trip. (more)Murray Hendriksen
From £1690 including domestic flights only

From £475 - £510 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
Kalkan village accommodation, Turkey
Deborah is a fine host with a wonderful cottage set in a beautiful location abounding with lovely, friendly animals. A perfect getaway and base to explore this stunning part of Lycia. (more)JOHN COLGAN
The most memorable part of the vacation was seeing the cottage for the first time as it was so much nicer than we had even hoped for! (more)Portia Dunmore
The most memorable part was the accommodation's location. It was great to be up in a little village, very peaceful, away from the pre-season warm up mode of Kalkan and surrounded by locals. (more)Amy Hill
From £300 - £450 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Lycian activity vacation
Fantastic! The down hill cycling was a lot of fun and they allowed you to go as fast as you liked and I like to go fast! They created a nice atmosphere within the group and we soon all gelled and had a lot of fun! (more)Saul Greenland
Every thing was amazing. I had one of the best vacations ever. The different activities showed different sides of Turkey you wouldn't normally see on a 'normal' vacation! (more)Ash Smith
We had a day of canyoning in the mountains of Kas and it was amazing - huge adrenaline rushes and great bonding with the rest of the group. (more)Tess Stackley
From US $855 - US $1425 excluding flights
Italian Alps inn accommodation in Piedmont, Italy
Gosh, difficult to say which part out of so many! I am reviewing the vacation five months later and still remember everything about our stay here. The delicious food and warm hospitality from the hosts, the beautiful scenery and the long walks will stay with me forever, I think. (more)Bill Reid
The kindness of our hosts, the nice balanced way they shared and included us in their individual enthusiasm and warmth, the pertinent information about local and Piemonte region, without coming too close were most memorable. Excellent vacation. (more)Anna Welsing
Whilst we have many very happy memories of our recent 5 weeks in Europe all involved voted that the week was 'the' most memorable. This was primarily a result of the passion that both Marla and Fabrizio bring to the running of the accommodation and to ensuring the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. Of course this professionalism is ably supported by the fantastic scenery and interesting history of the area. (more)Neal Dalgliesh
From €60 per couple per night
Sea kayaking vacation in Croatia
Perfect...The whole vacation was memorable. The kyaking guides were fantastic, accommodation good, food great and I never felt 'herded' around - it was really relaxing and good fun. (more)Pauline Heslop
Lovely week. The group was great with a real mix of ages and experiences. The pace of the week was just right with some pretty challenging paddles some days and really relaxing ones on others. The attitude was laid back with loose plans flexible to suit the needs of the group. (more)jane chaplin
Great fun....the most exciting parts was staying on Sipan and doing a 22k kayak into a 25 km per hour headwind (more)jane brook
From €715 - €750 excluding flights

This was an excellent vacation. Our hosts were wonderful, the other guests (all British) were delightful, and the hikes, food, and wine were exceptional. (more)Katherine Layton
We particularly enjoyed the convivial company at meal times and our hosts taking the time to share meals and local insight with us. Carol's cooking combined the best of local produce and traditional French cookery. (more)Elizabeth Anderson
From €873 - €967 excluding flights
Photography vacation in Andalucia, Spain
The locations for the photo shoots were excellent - especially Comares and the lake. Good company enjoyed over the varied evening meals. (more)ROB INNIS
Great value for money - informative and friendly tuition, excellent accomodation and hospitality. (more)Louise Goddard
The week was very enjoyable - good photography tips, great locations in Spanish villages and coasts, and with 'staff' that seemed more like old friends than small business operators. And it was excellent value for money. (more)Murray Rudd
From £599 - £699 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

Liveaboard diving and sailing vacation in Greece
I had a really lovely time. (more)Melandee Brown
Excellent...For me it was the opportunity to see some amazing places, both on land and underwater. The night dive on Polygaios with the bioluminescent plankton was mind-blowing, Avatar style! (more)Mathias Bredvei
It was wonderful to visit islands that we would not normally visit, we particularly enjoyed that some of them were off the beaten track. (more)andrea jackson
From €790 - €920 excluding flights
Delhi to Goa overland tour
Memorable parts? Seeing was believing when it came to the Taj Mahal, not many places live up to be better than you anticipate as this place did. My wife and I have done some traveling, but this has to be the most impressive building we have ever witnessed. The Taj Mahal was almost worth the tour fee alone. Tips? Do not be put off by such a cheap price for the package, if we had paid treble we still would have been getting value for money! Don't be put off by such high attention from... (more)Jonathan Kenyon
From US $1147 - US $1349 excluding flights
Catalonia self guided walking vacations, Spain
I loved the walk along the rocky coast from secluded beach to secluded beach. Seeing nesting storks in the Aiguamolls national park was a highlight too! (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
It was the best vacation we have taken in many years. Cadacaue was the loveliest town I have ever seen and the hotel on the beach with the balcony views was equally exquisite. (more)Karen Balter
There were so many best bits it is hard to choose just one!! Perhaps one dramatic landscape after another, or was it the amazing food, or the super friendly people, or the lovely accommodations? (more)Debra Efroymson
From £378 - £674 excluding flights
India Golden Triangle tour
The temples and history were fascinating, especially the Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Amer Fort, Pink city etc and were very interesting the animals, birds, environment, and landscape were amazing with stunningly beautiful scenery in many locations. (more)Elizabeth Gooch
Seeing the Taj Mahal and Baby Taj in Agra was so amazing. I got to see the Taj at sunset and it really does change colors. The biggest surprise was Mumbai. (more)Patricia Iris Mayo
From £1199 - £1399 excluding flights
Laos small group vacation
Memorable parts? The boat trip down the Mekong. So relaxing. Tips? Keep luggage to a minimum. Laundry facilities are widely available and you'll have more room in your case for purchases.

From US $1810 - US $2340 including domestic flights only
Short break cruise in Scotland, Western Isles
Memorable parts? The stunning scenery and peaceful moorings. The wildlife especially the seals and beautiful shoals of jellyfish floating like alien creatures in a calm sea. The first ever fish caught by one of our party - a splendid mackerel! The delicious food and good company of Michael and Colette. The successful descent into the dinghy of a nervous member of our party - if she can do it with Michael's patient help anyone can. Raising and lowering the anchor - tying knots and rope throwing... (more)Fiona Morrison
From £375 - £944 excluding flights
Small group holiday to Burma
Don't hesitate - just go! The operator are an independent company who care that you get the best vacation possible. And they are small enough to make sure you see some of the top sights, but also get you in to see off the beaten track places. (more)Helen White
Burma is such a fabulous country to visit - our itinerary included one or more highlights every day. The crowning glory of our tour was our guide Po. He looked after our group of six as if we were family. (more)Stephanie Diggon
It was all new and exciting for that reason …… very heart warming to see what is flourishing in Myanmar and also fearful that some not such good things come with the advent of more tourism. Our trip to Pagan and Inle Lake are the highlights for me. (more)Jane Edington
From US $2585 - US $2725 excluding flights
Pisa to Lucca walking vacation in Italy

From €485 - €715 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)
