    From
    £1,150
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Riding the crazy streets of Phnom Penh on the first day, like you're in a computer game. Eating a power bar on a river bed after a two-hour push through mud. Seeing a small girl rowing a bath tub in a floating village on the Tonlé Sap. Beef loc lac. Fish amok. A chorus of hellos from children in every village. Hoem, the support van driver's laugh. Angkor Thom with no one there. Twin massage in Siem Reap. Water buffalo. Macaques. Iced coffee with condensed milk. The ice-cream... (more)Louise Brealey

    Excellent...there were too many highlights for us to single out any one experience as the most memorable. Every day was memorable and for all the right reasons. (more)Gerald Sherry
    Successful (more)Marcia Westreich
    One of the most memorable things was the beautiful Carpathian countryside and the people working in the fields as of yesteryear. The haymaking and haystacks were fascinating and we all fell in love with rural Romania. (more)Joan Houston

    From
    €1,090
    excluding flights
    The Cuban people were very welcoming, helpful, and friendly, taking in all the beautiful scenery, whether it be the Vinales valley, the beautiful beaches or the historic streets of Trinidad and Havana (more)Gary Lum
    The highlight was the walk up El Yunke in Baracoa. In fact everything about Baracoa was lovely. The guide Norge was simply the best... A very enjoyable and educational tour. It was very good to experience the friendliness and enterprise of the people in Cuba. (more)Melsa Houston
    We really enjoyed the Badada Codina hike - in Sierra Escambray. The hike was 3-4 hours... Our guide was great - telling us stories about the nature we were seeing, but also about herself and the people living in the mountains... She took us to the caves, and then to the state-run restaurant where we (surprisingly) had an amazing lunch with roasted pig, rice, Cristal and coffee & fruits at the end. (more)Beatrice Mosello
    Jordan vacation, a week in Jordan
    From
    US $1,335
    excluding flights
    Jerdash Roman ruins was quite intact and impressive. But the most memorable were Petra, the walk along the Siq, and seeing the Treasury, and the Monastery. They were fantastic. Hiking up to the cliffs of Petra and the views were outstanding. (more)Ferdinand Rullan
    The most memorable moment was Petra (of course) and the camel ride at Wadi Rum (it is an optional but well worth it!). Our local tour leader was excellent (knowledge of history and kept us entertained during our bus journeys), the group blended well (the best so far), trips well organised and plenty of shopping opportunities. (more)Hely Collie
    Petra was the obvious highlight but we saw so many other unexpected monuments, ancient cities and fabulous landscape. Every day brought a new highlight. An excellent trip that visited as much of the country as possible squeezed into a week. (more)Alison Drew

    From
    US $1,925
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Climbing the Hai Van pass. We all made it to the top and were supported throughout by our guide Danh who gave us cold drinks and cheered us on. The food was also great and we were treated to genuine local cuisine, all delicious. Tips? Take more money than recommend, especially if you want to take presents home or drink wine with you evening meal. Some people couldn't get money out of the ATMs so tell your bank that you are going to Vietnam. You don't really need US... (more)Cath Lysley
    Jordan vacation on a shoestring
    From
    £499
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Petra was AMAZING, the site, and number of different ancient relics is unbelieveable, and truly awe inspiring to see how sophisticated they were, so long ago. Tips? Make sure you spend your evenings exploring, it's all too easy to get meals in hotels, but walking into the town in Petra (it's a little walk from the hotel, but there are taxis as alternative), and taxis into Amman - it is so worth while. Local benefits? I think this trip used local guides, and... (more)Clara Downton

    Madagascar north coast nature holiday
    From
    US $2,595
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Seeing the lemur's and other wildlife. Talking to as many local Madagascan people as was possible. Visiting the Tsingy. Tips? Fly as often as possible, the roads are unbelievably bad up North, even in a four wheel drive. Take what you are told before you go with a "pinch of salt". There are other travel operators to Madagascar look at them all. Make sure you talk to the local guides all the time, especially if you have a complaint. Even if some one says the roads...
