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
Scotland cruise, Skye and the Small Isles
From
£2,100
excluding flights
Memorable parts? So much: seeing Dolphins, Basking sharks, Minky whale, otter, seals. Making new friends and experiencing 5* dining Tips? You will need good mobility as daily explorations can be over rough terrain. Take good midgy repellent and creams. Local benefits? All animal sightings where recorded and reported back to a central database. Remote isles benefited from additional spend on their produce Overall rating? Both my sister and I loved this vacation.... (more)Barbara Bishop
Umbria cooking vacation, Italy
From
€1,190
excluding flights
The most memorable was the location and the kindest of attention shown. The service was so personalized which distinguishes this trip from many others I have had. (more)Simone Micallef
There are a number of memorable things - the house and it's very peaceful location, Marina and Gianlucca's hospitality; perhaps extra special were the cooking lessons in their superb kitchen followed by some excellent meals with great company. (more)Kevin Fidler
Do it. You will love it. (more)Ruth Kirkby
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
Transylvania vacation, Dracula tours in Romania
From
€999
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Exploring medieval citadels, tracing the old city walls, and climbing all the watch towers one comes across are some of the most enjoyable moments of this vacation. Tips? Pack light - most of these charming hotels do not have elevators :) Local benefits? I think the kindness and sincerity of the local people, coupled with Romania's unspoiled natural beauty benefited me! Overall rating? Thoroughly enjoyable and memorable! (more)Betty Jung
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

Brown bear tracking in Northern Greece
From
€599
excluding flights
It did not have one single highlight -the entire trip was enjoyable. (more)Christine Singer
Seeing a brown bear was the highlight of the vacation but this was definitely the icing on the cake. The friendly people, wonderful mountain scenery, incredible views, amazing walks, butterflies, orchids and peace and quiet made the vacation memorable at all times. (more)Liz Pitt
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
Umbria cooking and painting vacation, Italy
From
€890
excluding flights
Memorable parts? This was my first trip to Italy, and as they say, first impressions do make lasting impressions. And Umbria was the right blend of beauty, serenity, culture and great cuisine. As a solo traveler, I basically wanted a relaxing break with some fun activities and learning too. I got all that and more with the Cooking and Painting vacation that I booked through Responsible travel, based at Podere le Olle in Umbria. I totally loved the experience, made especially memorable by... (more)Ambika Thandavan
Cultural tours to Transylvania, Romania
From
£968
excluding flights
Absolutely amazing. The company who ran the tour were incredible- friendly, helpful, they bent over backwards to make sure I had everything I needed. My guide had incredible knowledge and was so friendly and helpful... I could not recommend this more highly! (more)Shellie May
I enjoyed all of it, I have to say. In particular, visiting Sighisoara and Sibiu brings back nice memories. Sighisoara for the medieval experience and the luck of arriving there in the middle of a festival. (more)Roxana Radulescu
South Africa and Swaziland safari
From
US $2,105
excluding flights
A totally amazing and uplifting experience. A lot of fun, a lot of new things learnt, a new appreciation of another country and it's culture, and new friends made. (more)Cathy McCall
We went to some utterly stunning places, purely magical. The tour leaders couldn't have been better- humorous, brimming with knowledge and stories, fantastic chefs...I could go on (more)Christina Stephenson
Cape Town is truly a wonder of the world and the beaches on the Wild Coast were spectacular...This was one of the best trips I have ever been on. (more)Patricia Ruble

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

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
