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

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

10/10 it was amazing.

It was an amazing wildlife adventure - I feel very fortunate to have seen freshly hatched baby green turtles and wild orangutans. (more)Claire Onody
There were many memorable moments. Too few to fully list out! One destination was the Gomantong Birdnest Caves. The main cave tests all your senses. Certainly a location for the next Indiana Jones film, not for flip-flop wearing tourists! (more)Jonathan Reed-Lethbridge
From US $2495 excluding flights
Winter adventure in Finland
Every day was an adventure, so difficult to single one experience out really, but I'll go for the husky sledding. We expected someone else to be driving - controlling the dogs yourself (though I use the word "control" in the loosest sense) was utterly exhilarating. The accommodation and surroundings were fabulous too. (more)Jonathan Green
Excellent experience, good taster of the best that Lapland has to offer. Beautifully snowy countryside and not as cold as I expected. Most memorable was overnight husky safari, getting to bond with your team of dogs. Then running out in our pyjamas to watch the northern lights! (more)Amanda Newnham
The two day husky safari was the most memorable part... A great variety of activities to wet your appetite. (more)Ian Wilkinson
From £1645 - £1772 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
An unforgettable experience...Riding on husky driven sledges through a winter wonderland was the most memorable part. (more)kate Pottinger

Oman small group tour
Memorable parts? 'Most memorable' is a hard call - I lost count of the number of times we said, 'Isn't that amazing!' Going to St George's Basilica for the Christmas Eve service on 6th January. How the stars blazed when we camped 12,000 feet up in the Simien mountains. Staying in a traditional house in the old quarter in the Muslim town of Harar. Meeting the Scottish lady who is setting up a restaurant in Lalibela. Tips? Take full advantage of the tour operators knowledge and experience... (more)Helen Yapp
From £1375 excluding flights

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
From US $849 excluding flights

A very good trip. Varanasi, the camaraderie of group members and our group leader and seeing India in action were the best parts of the trip. (more)Michael Adams
I am in my 50s and I found the pace excellent - no more than 3 nights anywhere - arrive - shower/rest - orientation walk then choose your activities and what a great diversity of activities. I found it stimulating and fun. (more)Hazel Durbridge

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)

Memorable parts? Meeting the friendly peoples of Burma. Visiting the Elephant Sanctuary, feeding the elephants and giving them a scrub in the river and enjoying a tasty lunch at the centre. Trekking for 2 days and staying in the village. The markets we visited were amazing places, I took so many pictures and didnt buy much,because I was too busy looking at the diverse people. Tips?
