Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Croatia vacation, activity week
From
£820
excluding flights
It was truly wonderful! It will be hard to top this experience. We felt that it catered really well for a mixed age group and differing ability levels. Relaxingly active is a perfect description! (more)Emma Dicksee
Really good. Especially as I was a single traveler. There is lots to keep you occupied, plus time to yourself. (more)Annabelle Monks
I went on my own it is by far the best vacation I have done as a solo traveler. (more)Alison Fraser
Endangered wildlife conservation in South Africa
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
This was so much more than a vacation and I'd book again within a heartbeat. (more)Sharon Williams
It is really hard to decide of many of the memorable and exciting experiences on this vacation which one stands out the most for me. Everyday it seemed that I saw something different in the bush, unexpectedly two male cheetahs appeared one morning, then there was the cheetah with her cub, there were rhinos and rhino babies, one interesting experience for me personally was a close encounter with an Assasin Bug(reduviidae, heteroptera). (more)Cathy Bisset
The most memorable part was all the time we spent in the bush - at least 10h per day. To see the other side of the safari - i.e. not being in a traditional tourist vehicle. (more)Karin van Volen
Croatia family activity week
From
£820
excluding flights
The vacation was brilliant. Activity balanced with proper relaxation. We have come back really rejuvenated. Craig and Xania (and Zora-the dog) work very well together to pull the experience together so you can just get on and enjoy your break. (more)Paul Irving
Excellent! The best parts were actively exploring the Island of Vis, on bikes, kayaks and foot. Beautiful place, beautiful people. (more)Diane Johnson
Our kids, aged 5 and 11 had a terrific time and really loved the activities as well as mucking about in the sea, snorkelling and swimming...Great! "Fantastic, awesome, really good!" (comments from the kids). (more)Diana Lloyd
Tailor made husky safari in Wild Taiga, Finland
From
€1,120
excluding flights
The most memorable moment was the warmth and hospitality of our hosts (and their great home cooked Finnish cuisine), to interacting with the dogs and harnessing them, to the experience of a wood fired sauna beside a frozen lake each evening, this short vacation could not have been better. (more)Matthew Peek
Excellent experience - would have liked to have stayed longer and would go again! (more)Philippa Cawthorne
Spectacular (more)Lloyd Bond
Borneo vacation, culture and wildlife
From
£1,799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the orangutans and elephants in the jungle. Tips? Rainforest trekking can be strenuous in the heat. Would advise stout footwear and poles if at all unsteady. Local benefits? Certainly benefited local people and supported conservation. I worry about the number of plastic water bottles we got through and there is no infrastructure in place for recycling. Overall rating? Absolutely brilliant! The itinerary was was interesting and varied. The 2... (more)Steve Blake
Cooking and walking vacation, Spanish Pyrenees
From
€1,295
excluding flights
EXCEPTIONAL. Exceeded my expectations on so many levels. From the quality of accommodation and attention to detail with all aspects of the week . (more)Deb Mickle
Breathtaking canyon walks far exceeding my imagination. Not forgetting having the experience of a lifetime as two Lamagayers (bearded cultures with 3metre wingspan) glided past me just a couple of metres away. Amazing. (more)Clare Cotton
Photography vacation in the Spanish Pyrenees
From
€1,495
excluding flights
One of my favourite ever vacations.! I would heartily recommend the place and the area to either walkers or photographers, or to anyone else for that matter. It is a hidden corner of Spain unknown to almost all visitors who flock to the sunbeds on the costas. (more)Colin Barclay
Each day was different, an adventure so difficult to point to any one specific highlight. Suffice to say this was one of the more memorable Photography Workshops I have been on. (more)Bert Hand
This is definitely one of the best vacations I have been on, such a wonderful mix of things, and it will definitely push you to your limits, well at least for me it did! (more)Marie-Louise Garratt

From
€649
excluding flights
You won't find better hosts anywhere. (more)Anarkali Alfredo
The setting is very tranquil and lovely and rather "away from it all" so you can really disconnect if you want to. (more)Heather Rome
It was great. Just what I needed. Very relaxing, great very healthy local food, great tips and advise. (more)Sarah Williams
Ganges tour, Delhi to Calcutta, India
From
£2,495

Excellent, just what I needed - a fascinating vacation in which everything was taken care of. (more)Kathryn Tomlinson

Most memorable was traveling down the Ganges on the boat and seeing Varanasi. (more)Jane Graham
Festivals and vacations in Ethiopia
From
£3,325
excluding flights
It was all memorable but - not toooo exciting! (more)June Addison
The most memorable parts were the fantastic views from the escarpments and a chance visit at a local school during the TESFA walk, the view over the twin of Ayers Rock from the Ghiralta lodge (more)Monica Filkova
This was a wonderful way to see the beauty of Ethiopia, its warm friendly people and to experience one of it's best known festivals in an idyllic rural community setting. The guide was outstanding in her knowledge of the country and was proactive...A traveling group vacation cannot get better than this. (more)Anne Cooper
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. The best parts were riding in unknown rural France with horses up country tracks and beneath trees in occasional woodland. 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
Vegetarian vacations in France
From
€879

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
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
Botanical holidays on Karpathos Island, Greece
From
€580
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Everything! Although the weather in Karpathos island is a bit dry, it has plenty of resources, olive & almond trees, honey, large variety of herbs, dairy and sea food. Majority of the food is homemade. The clear blue sky and sea, the spring breeze, the cleanliness of the island. And...how to make the goats as obedient as dogs :) The people are so friendly which makes me feel like I am one of them. Hotel room is clean, very good service and cooked me good food everyday.... (more)Phyllis Lee
