A bit disappointing really
Scotland cruise, Skye and the Small Isles
From
£1,285
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....

This vacation was perfect - exactly what was needed! It blows the cobwebs away from normal life, gives you the peace and time to watch the world go by, fantastic food and is the perfect opportunity to see nature at its most incredible. A very positive life experience! (more)Claudia Philps
From meeting the captain and crew, seeing orca, humpback and the northern lights on the first day. We cannot pick out 1 memorable experience, it was all excellent (more)Vicki Binley

Mull is a wonderful island where you will not find a disappointing view. The wildlife trips organized as part of the vacation package were excellent. Each trip was conducted by very professional and knowledgeable experts covering all aspects of the local flora and fauna. (more)David Hayers

Best bit: Our drive from Harstad airport to Andenes. The scenery was stunning, the traffic negligible and we spotted a moose, a dolphin and a pair of white-tailed eagles. (more)Susan Churcher
Seeing the Northern Lights - we were lucky to see them as both the night before and after the skies had been too cloudy, it was a very surreal experience - they were so ethereal and beautiful. (more)Amandeep Manget
Whale watching holiday in Baja, Mexico
From
€2,950
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Seeing so many whales, so close to us and they were not stressed in any way. The extra bonus of seeing so many other species while looking for whales. Tips? Follow the guide lines provided by the operator Local benefits? Helped the local economy by using hotels, restaurants, local guides and boatmen. I think the locals were very environmentally and conservation aware and we were benefiting from their system. Overall rating? Fantastic trip on so many... (more)Barbara Haffner

Memorable parts? Meeting the wonderful people, new friends! And above all finally living the dream of being slowly introduced to the incredible Grey Whales of San Ignacio Laguna, also I must add Seeing a Blue Whale in Loreto, something I never thought I would ever see! Everything about this vacation was wonderful,memorable and heartwarming...the only negative thing I could possibly write was having to say Goodbye at the end of it all! Tips? Live every magical moment, don't spend too... (more)Sammie Haines
Blue Whale tour in the Azores
From
£990
excluding flights
Best bits: seeing five sperm whales "socialising" together and swimming in a perfect line, almost managing to synchronise their "blows", catching a great picture of the tail fin of the massive blue whale, seeing the huge side fins of the humpback just under the water giving them an eerie blue colour (more)Tim Hall
Whales, whales and more whales, plus lots of dolphins. (more)Janet Gaten
During our first week on Faial, being lucky enough to see our first blue whale within an hour of setting out in the catamaran.Then seeing over 50 whales (blue, fin, sei, sperm ) and over 100 dolphins (common, bottlenose, rissos ) over the three days. It was amazing. The Azores are an amazing vacation destination, we will be back. (more)David Turley

Alaska wildlife cruise
From
CA $5,265

Memorable parts? The whole trip was outstanding from start to finish. The boat was great - large enough to give everyone space but small enough to be personal. The crew were exception and had the vacation, Brian the very experience skipper who had time to talk to everyone and was extremely knowledgeable, Steve nothing was too much trouble, Annie the cook who provided first class food made fresh everyday and Danny the naturalist who was knowledgeable and great fun. And finally the wildlife... (more)Sarah Taylor

Whale study week in Newfoundland
From
CA $3,400
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Where to start? Could it be the close encounters with puffins? Or the white beaked dolphins playing with a humpback whale calf? The spotting of an Osprey nest on top of the telegraph pole? Moose spotting? Trying to find the lighthouse on Care Spear (fog!)Or the tour leader singing local balads whilst traveling to our next wildlife encounter?

Argentina highlights vacation, 12 days
From
US $2,179
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We did not do a 12 day highlights vacation. Instead we contacted the vacation provider direct and with them planned a 19 day trip. See below for views on this process. As far as memorable experiences, the list is endless. Perito Moreno glacier was amazing to see and hear - it really is blue in parts, and it was well worth paying extra to do the mini-trek. A great experience. So was horse-riding with a gaucho. Hiring a car and doing a 4 night circular tour from Salta was great.... (more)Ro Lynam
Sri Lanka wildlife vacation, tailor made
From
£955
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We especially loved the second day of our tour, when we climbed the Sigiriya rock fortress in the morning, had a traditional lunch in a village near Habarana and interacted with the villagers in the afternoon, then saw elephants in Minneriya National Park in the evening. It was a perfect combination of everything that Sri Lanka has to offer. We also really enjoyed the campfire dinner at Big Game Camp in Udawalawe National Park. Tips? Check with the tour company what... (more)Roxana Feier
Wildlife vacation in the Isle of Mull, Scotland
From

Very enjoyable and well organised....The scenery was absolutely stunning even if the weather wasn't great but that's the risk with going to Scotland any time of year. (more)Jennifer Lacey

Sri Lanka wildlife and whales tour
From
US $2,275
excluding flights
finally seeing a Leopard in the wild, it was not without its stress as there were too many jeeps trying to populate a very small space but eventually we were lucky and had wonderful views as an adult female came down to drink at a waterhole. (more)Chris Rose
the most memorable part was seeing what I went to see - leopards and whales! (more)Susan Fox
Azores whale and dolphin watching holiday
From
US $2,095
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the whales and dolphins, of course! I also really loved the hot springs. And the botanical gardens.....and the tea plantation.......and the food and the great group and Nunu- what an incredibly knowledgeable guide! Tips? Some people were seasick. I took a Kwell, used travel bands and chewed ginger gum and I was fine. I might have been fine without all that - I'll never know. Take clothes for all weathers. Local benefits? Yes, tourism is a very... (more)Jo Fallon
