Georgia & Armenia cultural vacation
From
£1,999
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The friendliness of the local people, in all three countries, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. I was happy to see many efforts at preserving local buildings, e.g. churches and monasteries, especially after the Russian occupation which closed (even destroyed), places of worship. The guides for both the Armenian and especially the Georgian sections were very knowledgeable and helpful. All three drivers did a great job, on sometimes, precarious roads, steering clear of wandering... (more)Judy Schneider

From
€665
excluding flights
It's the first time we'd gone on vacation with a relatively small company and we really appreciated the greater flexibility of traveling this way. (more)Sibyl Ruth
It was a brilliant vacation. Dan, our guide, is very knowledgeable about the local area and is a very experienced walker.

Each of the walks was varied and we therefore encountered many different types of beautiful scenery, plant and wildlife. (more)Elayne Jackson
An excellent vacation filled with lots of special, characterful hotels. We walked with a fantastic guide, Dan Shaffrey, who taught us so much about the local flora,fauna & history of the areas.

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

Prepare for long truck, bus and jeep rides, bring maybe a sleeping pillow or similar. Mattress is not necessary and a sleeping bag just for two nights, so don't bother to waste too much space for this. Hiking boots for the gorillas are a must. Don't miss out on the Pygmy village! Local benefits? Definitely... (more)Alessandra Hool
Patagonia tour, 24 day itinerary
From
US $2,932
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The scenery, unbelievable and photos don't do it justice. Tips? Pace yourself, there's a lot of trekking and it's a lot steeper than you prepare for.

There's always more you can do, but there's a good balance here. Overall rating? Excellent value for money. (more)Fran Adenis
