A bit disappointing really
Mercantour family hiking vacation, France
From
545
excluding flights
Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of vacation. (more)Alison Godfrey
The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert
Trekking holiday in Cuba
From
325
excluding flights
Getting to know the Cuban people and staying in their homes was an invaluable experience. By far my favourite moment was the tobacco wanting tour! We enjoyed it so much we returned 2 days later and had a great time visiting the owners of the different farms. (more)Chantal Moore
On the front end prior to the trip to Cuba, we had some very practical recommendations that helped harness expectations to match reality, which helped make the trip more enjoyable. Event and tour ticket pickup points and times were mostly easily understood and accurate. Most of the contracted guides were helpful, courteous, and provided a lot of insight into Cuban culture. I'll be a repeat customer. (more)Matt S
Certainly interesting was the venture to see Castro's headquarters in Alta Naranjo. (more)Christina Parsons

The most memorable part of the trek was on Day 2 where we hit the highest point of the trail at 4,732m! (more)Wei Seng Mak
Langtang Valley trekking vacation, Nepal
From
1,595
excluding flights
The guides know the families who run the Tea Houses where we stayed ,and on many occasions we were greeted as old friends ! Also by being in a small group the impact on the environment and in the villages we stayed was not as significant as if we'd been in a larger group. (more)Jane Elliott
The western and Nepali guides and porters were great - always smiling and ready to make sure everyone was happy. An excellent trip in all aspects. (more)patricia barber
This trip has some of the most beautiful nature and scenery you will ever see in your life. (more)Albert Assely
Kumano Kodo trail self guided trekking vacation, Japan
From
US $965
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it was good. The highlight might have been the first sight of the Golden Temple in Kyoto, or the first proper Japanese meal. Tips? As it is primarily a walking vacation through woods, I would recommend one takes good walking boots and a stick. Local benefits? Mainly staying staying in small, traditional hotels (ryokan) must be good. Overall rating? Excellent. All the arrangements worked perfectly. (more)John Brennan

Spain hiking vacation, Sarria to Santiago de Compostela
From
675
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Getting to Santiago to the Cathedral after a long and sometimes demanding walk. Tips? For those in their sixties I would suggest a walk duration of 11-12 days from Porto to Santiago. Local benefits? Local people benefitted certainly from the additional business they got from us. We were extremely careful to respect the environment we were in and were generally impressed with the level of cleanliness and respect shown to it. Overall rating? This was...

From
2,750
excluding flights
Inca trail and Machu Picchu was the most memorable part of the vacation (more)Mandy Risso
The Andean explorer train ride from Cusco to Lake Titicaca was an excellent way to see many aspects of Peru from the city suburbs through the slums then farming communities, through the middle of market towns and past the spectacular backdrop of the Andes. (more)Jane Lines
The most lasting memory will probably be our stay on Amantani Island on Lake TitiKaka. We stayed with a family without water and electricity and it was both enjoyable as well as being an eye opener. (more)Chris Simmons
Walking holiday in France, Mercantour Reflections
From
675
excluding flights
Tres bien! Liz and Mel took good care of us and went above and beyond our expectations to ensure our vacation was great. Good value, too! (more)Holly Evans
The variety of the walks and scenery - and loads of wildlife. Marmot, chamois, vultures, various birds. Level of challenge was set just right for the needs of the group...Great - would do it again! Really good value for money. (more)Patricia Grey
The most memorable part was exploring, mainly on foot, a 'new', relatively unknown but scenically stunning corner of France on the back of excellent, welcoming accommodation and hospitality. (more)Richard Gregory

excluding flights

Annapurna Circuit & Tilicho Lake trekking vacation
From
US $1,095
excluding flights
It was incredible, amazing, breathtaking. Simply spectacular. Totally worth it, Nepal is a paradise, and its people are a big part of the good feeling you get there. (more)Laura Murillo
My guide Krishna and porter Ali were helpful throughout with Ali never saying a negative word about my kit bag he was carrying and Krishna being especially on the early morning ascent to Thorong La Pass. He sensibly walked 40/50 paces then stopped for 30 seconds and then on again etc. At that altitude the pace was just right and we made it to the top in wonderful snowy conditions with clear blue skies at 8.30 am a great memory to have. (more)Len Davison
Nepal is a stunning country but it is being undermined by pollution and corruption. There seems to be an attitude that its ok to overcharge tourists because they are seen as rich by comparison. (more)Jane Crashley
Annapurna Circuit trek, Nepal
From
1,040
excluding flights
Overall we had an amazing vacation. This was partly down to the breathtaking scenery of the mountains, the beauty of lakeside Pokhara and the bustling excitement of Kathmandu, but mostly down to the quality of service provided by the operator who made the task of trekking for 11 days a really comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable experience. (more)Kylie Ackers
Fantastic. We had a great time and this is mainly due to our travel agent who did an amazing job. (more)Marc Siat
The whole trip was AMAZING, but being in the mountains was my favourite part - especially since my guide and porter were so great. (more)Mandy LG
Kilimanjaro Shira Route climb
From
US $3,995

Backpacking in the Canadian Rockies
From
CA $1,165
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of our vacation were the views that we experienced. They were breath taking. Sitting on top of Tangle Peak after having just climbed up it was amazing. Robert was a very good guide on this trail and told us a lot about the history of the land with the First Nations. The other trails that we went on were guided by Troy who was the most amazing person. He knew so much and was very encouraging as this was our first hiking vacation. He set a good pace and... (more)Joanne Barnas
Canadian Rockies & wilderness walking holiday
From
US $2,279
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hiking the Iceline trail in Yoho National Park. Seeing grizzly and black bears by the roadside. Tips? The pace of this vacation is a bit frenetic and there was very little 'down time'. Days started early and every minute was taken up with hiking, cooking for the group (of 16 in our case) and washing up, putting up or taking down tents and traveling between destinations, but, despite the hard work, it was one of the best vacations I've ever had. Truly fabulous group... (more)Christabel Owens

From

The most memorable part was the summit, with the climb up under a crystal clear sky with an amazing view of the night sky full of bright stars and shooting stars, followed by a gorgeous sunrise visible from the peak. (more)Kevin Bill
Overall, it was a good blend of experience and adventure. I am glad I did it, but also glad to be home. (more)Graeme Adams
We managed to summit Mt Kenya and the views from the top were absolutely awesome!! The National Park is surely hikers paradise. Secondly we enjoyed the safari in the Masai Mara, managed to see massive amount of wildlife. Guess that the lion cubs must have been the best. (more)Wouter Kingma

From

New Zealand hiking vacation
From
US $6,505
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The scenery, the culture, the tour leader Mayuko was the best leader ever. Very friendly, helpful, warm, informative she made the vacation. Tips? Travel light there is a lot of moving around between train stations and bus stations etc. Food is limiting enough if you don't eat meat/fish. Be prepared to eat a lot of rice and noodles Local benefits? All of the above yes Overall rating? Very good. More traveling on buses and trains than I had... (more)Roisin Courtney
Mount Toubkal climb in Morocco
From
US $615
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Reaching the peak of Mount Toubka, of course! But equally the lovely new friendships I have made from a great group of people to travel and climb with and the absolutely stunning and spectacular scenery of the High Atlas Mountains. Tips? For the Mount Toubkal climb, I would say GET FIT. Do lots of climbing practice - both ascents and descents and practice with a day pack on your back. Also bring a camera that can take good photos - the scenery is stunning. Local... (more)Pam Harris
Annapurna trekking vacation, Rhododendron trek
From
US $695
excluding flights
This was an exceptional trip, of course due to the stunning mountains, but mostly because of the fantastic work of the team. They made us feel welcome, safe and entertained. It's easy to see the tangible effects of benefiting the local people. Many of the teahouses exist only because of the people coming through on treks. This is particularly important now after the devastation of the earthquake. (more)Emma Collver
Traveling through the villages you will see the women working in the paddy fields. Drinking masala tea overlooking the Phewa Tal against a backdrop of the mountains was wonderfully relaxing after the 6 day trek. (more)Gill Craig
This was an excellent vacation, a great experience... Superb mountain scenery, a good challenging trek, really interesting culture, very warm and friendly Nepali people (including the guide and porter)... (more)Mike Schofield

Lots of good and varied walks directly accessible from the village, so minimal car use. Overall rating? An enjoyable week in the midst of a stormy, wet winter.... (more)Jim Forrest
