Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group tour
Memorable parts? Driving with Makoros (traditional wood boot) to our wild camping in the Okavango Delta observed by hippos. Tips? Take thermal underwear with you when going on this trip in Africa's winter. The temperature at night was sub zero and morning/evenings were cold as well. Local benefits? Yes, we contributed to the local economy and tried to leave only foot prints. Overall rating? Even I am not reborn I would give 5 stars. It was one of my best vacations... (more)Sigrid Pach

This trip was an amazing introduction to southeast Asia for me. I felt that my experience of Thailand and Laos was enhanced by this trip...Trekking throughout the north of Laos was amazing.

From £1775 excluding flights
Belize wildlife conservation holiday
It was a very positive experience being in a country that treasures the natural environment and it is government policy to protect at least 40% of the land for nature. I felt that after 3 weeks I had only scratched the surface of what there is to find out about Belize and definitely plan on returning. (more)Cathy Bisset
Once in a life time experience...meeting all the wild animals was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Kerry Sedman

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

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
From €650 excluding flights

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.

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)

Small group holiday to Burma
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
The most memorable parts are hard to choose between the wonder of Shwedeagon Pagoda with all it's glittering gold, river journey down the Ayeyarrwady and first sight of Bagan, then cycling around it, relaxing time on Inle Lake, and visiting the botanic gardens in Pyin U-Lwin and the hills of Kalaw. (more)Janet Sutherland

Every day was a wonderful experience during our stay in Brazil and Ecuador but I guess the Galapagos will be the most memorable. (more)Ann Hammersley

Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari
Excellent...The whole experience was so full of adventure and different sights and experiences from beginning to end. (more)Mandy Bryan
Chitwan NP... an encounter with a rhino while on a walk. Pretty amazing watching one of these animals come out of the bush, and your there with your guide and helper, each with nothing more than sticks, looking at these large endangered species... won't forget that! (more)David Whetham
It was wonderful to walk through out the lovely villages meeting people and also the beauty of the countryside and experiencing breath taking views of the mountains.

From £1225 including UK flights
Husky safari in Finland
The most memorable part of the vacation was not just one thing, but many memories of which - flying down hill trying to control my sledge and not fall off, making snow angels before going back into the sauna, lunch on an open fire on a frozen lake, the views, the noise of the dogs as we got ready in the morning to leave. (more)Kathryn Haw

It was all great: peace and quiet, made to feel welcome but left alone when you wanted privacy. The local market was crammed with excellent local produce. Local wildlife, stargazing, scenery. (more)Richard Needham
Absolutely excellent. The property was well kept but traditional and quirky too. (more)Suzi Staden
From £390 per week (sleeps 2)
Morocco vacations, Atlas Panorama
Great - just what I needed...the benefits (economically) were shared out across the community and local villages with different families involved in different ways. (more)Kerrie Buhagiar
Absolutely great....The first night we had exceptionally clear skies - I've never seen anywhere near as many stars. Beautiful! (more)Tammo Schuelke
Very good - a good combination of a 'full-on' city like Marrakech and the much more contemplative environment of the quiet mountains. The contrast between the two is huge. (more)Dave Young
From US $700 excluding flights
Thailand vacation, mountains & beaches
Imaginatively devised, well planned and executed. The best parts were the visit to the Sakai tribe, Sukhotai World Heritage Site, the longboat trip down the Kok River & the trek to the Northern hill tribes. (more)Charles Moberly
The elephant riding and the Thai cooking was the most memorable part. (more)Sarah Morton
From US $3040 excluding flights
Fitness holidays & fitness courses in Zanzibar
Crawling like a crocodile on the sand, and my failed attempt to climb a tree, stick out in my mind. It's provided a lot of comic fodder to my friends when I tell the stories. I LOVED boxing, the food was absolutely delicious and just seeing the "before and after" videos of myself was very motivational. (more)Tania Zwicky
Go for it, you will discover a different (and fun) way to do fitness in a beautiful environment and spirit. (more)Sandrine de La Pommeraye
Just book it! You will not regret it for one moment! I have never got so much out of a two week trip in my life. Beautiful scenery, great exercise, super food, luxury accommodation and a refreshing new take on local culture and environment. (more)Karen O'Mahony

Many local people were employed in the reserve and the studies that were being carried out influenced how the reserve was managed and that benefited the locals. As the research carried out was the same as the normal... (more)Louise Sexton
From £1395 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
