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

So many highlights. It was wonderful to see such a variety of lemurs, chameleons and other wildlife (including a fossa!)... It may have been the best trip of my life. (more)Lorena Sutherland
An excellent vacation, one of my best for many years.... I shared the vacation with wonderful group of co-travelers, who all gelled and got along from day one. The nature and wildlife of Madagascar were fantastic, discovering new things and creatures on a daily basis. I would totally recommend this trip to any nature lover. (more)David Ward

I loved it, the Myanmar people are very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back. (more)Mark Meyrick
Mexico, Belize and Guatemala vacation
From
US $972
excluding flights
Fantastic. My teenage, and somewhat well-travelled children have rated it as the best vacation ever. (more)Alex Holmes
The morning spent at Tikal in Guatemala was excellent. This activity is definitely best done in the early morning light as it gets very warm and less pleasant to walk in the jungle after 10am. (more)Diana Urbina
Cultural vacation in Indonesia
From
£2,195
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Going to a traditional funeral of a very high status lady in Toraja. We only went on one day but it lasted 7 days. All her relatives and members of her tribe were there - about 20,000 people. We were made most welcome by one of the ladies grandchildren who spoke very good English so we could enjoy the spectacle even more. Tips? Travel pretty light. It's very hot and humid so lots of loose clothes but take good walking shoes - there is lots of walking involved. Local... (more)Gerard Mulryan
Wildlife vacation in Costa Rica
From
US $873
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing magnificent rainforest from high bridges on flanks of a volcano, seeing a turtle laying her eggs, giving bottle of milk to young spider, howler and capuchin monkeys at a rescue centre. Tips? Don't miss out on tours which give you full experience of the natural history of Costa Rica. Local benefits? I think the money I paid for my tours helped support the conservation and wildlife work and that my tour helped the businesses of the hotel and restaurant... (more)Celia Home
Algeria vacations, Desert and History
From
£2,699
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Roman ruins of Algeria are always a highlight, even more when one is blessed with a very good Guide as we had. Algiers is very beautiful, as far as I know the only Art Nouveau town, beautiful, despite the decay and rainy weather. Tips? Brace yourself for long drives (mainly from the desert onwards) and the nuisance of local security, which is not really intended to our security, as they often forget their own relay... Local benefits? Local people did... (more)maria camilo
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
Rajasthan and Taj Mahal tour
From
£900
excluding flights
The most memorable moments were Ranakpur Temple, wandering the streets of Bundi and visiting the Hindu temples there with the guide. It was a fantastic and rewarding experience which I will not soon forget. It really opened my eyes to a lot I didn't know about Indian culture and history... (more)Barton Colmerauer
The most important contributor to this was of course an excellent and friendly guide, who I would thoroughly recommend to others. (more)Gerry Scott
Sri Lanka vacation, small group
From
US $1,665

Jewels of Sri Lanka was a brilliant trip we covered so much from temples, wildlife, tasty food and fantastic beach time. Amara, Ranjit and Indika really looked after us and gave us fantastic service. (more)Jo Miller
The variety of activities, cultural as well as physical. The hotels were of good standard. (more)Christine Hallam
Central America tour on a shoestring
From
US $1,962
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Roatan, one of the bay Islands of Honduras, was beautiful and the diving was fantastic, and I'll probably never forget the chicken buses! Tips? If you're used to traveling independently then be prepared to find the lack of freedom quite restricting, however it is great not to have to worry about transport and accommodation! Local benefits? I feel that it benefitted local people as wherever possible we patronised local businesses and shops, and as far as is... (more)Victoria Baynes
Costa Rica vacation, encompassed
From
US $1,422
excluding flights
The most exciting part of the Costa Rica encompassed trip was zip lining above the trees in Monteverde Cloud Forest and abseiling down the waterfalls on a canyoneering trip outside La Fortuna. (more)Louise Muller
Definitely white water rafting on the way from Cahuita to San Jose was the highlight. A great day out, the river was perfect. Lots of adrenaline and lovely refreshing water. An amazing lunch was laid on for us as well by the side of the river. (more)Elaine Bettaney
The most memorable part was going into the beautiful clear, turquoise and remarkably warm water of the Pacific ocean, for a swim just as the sun was setting - an amazing way to start the vacation. (more)Susie Everest
Eastern Europe cultural tour
From
US $1,602
excluding flights
Seeing a mother bear come to feed and bringing her cub out with her was the perfect end to the Romanian part of the trip. (more)Joyce Ell

Family vacation in Romania, tailor made
From
£677
excluding flights
Memorable parts? To quote my son, when asked the same question... I liked all of it!! However, if I have to chose particular moments... Getting a feel for the rhythm of village life on a glorious spring morning in Biertan, taking an evening stroll alongside the locals in Brasov and making it to the top of the 1426 steps (my younger son counted!) to see the view from Poienari Citadel. Tips? We went to Romania in Spring and I would recommend going there at Easter (which is a little... (more)Jo Murray
Peru adventure vacation, small group
From
US $3,159

Memorable parts? The whole trip has been the most fantastic experience, we cannot actually pick out any single part of it which stood out more than any other. We have never had such a varied range of experiences and adventure in one trip before. Incredible journey. Tips? Go!!!! If you take American Dollars ensure that the notes are in pristine condition, they majority of exchange places will not accept any note then shows any sign (no matter how small) of damage. The main banks... (more)Alison Kille

Peru, Bolivia and Chile vacation
From
US $2,772
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I loved every minute of my tour, but seeing Machu Picchu with your own eyes takes some beating, I have been to 5 of the seven wonders of the world now, and Mach Picchu is the best. Got the Great wall and Petra left to do Tips? Don't be put off by any negative reviews you read pre-booking, as its impossible to please everyone and remember its an adventure vacation which is the crux of it Local benefits? Yes to all of the above, places like Cusco, Puno etc... (more)Michael Dickerson

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
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
Small group tour of Egypt, Nubian adventure

Our tour was organised brilliantly. We felt safe at all times and the guides were knowledgeable. The 3 day cruise on the Nile was the best part (more)Angela Guildford
Colombia vacation, small group
From
US $1,647
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The lush, beautiful scenery in the South of Colombia. Tips? Be aware that so many of the activities our tour operator mentioned are NOT available, i.e. horse-riding, bicycle tour, tubing, white water rafting - latter not allowed for over 60's. This caused major disappointment for many of the group. Local benefits? Not particularly. Overall rating? Tiring (lots of long road journeys, plus several flights due to the size of the country) but a fabulous... (more)Stevie Bishop
Egypt cultural vacation, small group
From
£699
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Visiting the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Karnak. Tips? Go with an open mind and give Egypt a chance. Local benefits? I definitely believe that the vacation benefitted local people as the Egyptian economy relies on tourism and currently there are very few tourists. Overall rating? Wonderful. I thoroughly recommend it. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable; we were in small groups (10 -11 people per group) and we were very well looked after.... (more)Karin Walda
Patagonia tour, 24 day itinerary
From
US $2,760
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. Brilliant, do what you can and enjoy the scenery. Be prepared for the Patagonian wind. There's also a lot of traveling, but the scenery changes so much you won't be bored. Local benefits? Yes. There's always more you can do, but there's a good balance here. Overall rating? Excellent value for money. (more)Fran Adenis
East Africa adventure vacation, safari, gorillas & beach
From
US $2,968
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Gorilla Tracking was just outstanding. Many other highlights of the tour (camping in the Serengeti, visit of local villages, rafting the Nile) were also great. Tips? 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
Borneo adventure vacations
From
US $2,043
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Early morning river boat experience viewing 100+ pygmy elephants (with their calves) swim across the river roughly 50 m in front of us. Closely followed by close-up view (from the boat) of salt -water crocodiles -they are very fast! Tips? Do not over-pack on the luggage. It's hot & humid (but bearable) and opportunities to wash clothes during the trip. Make sure you have a good torch (& spare batteries) with you. Must be reasonably fit (and plenty stamina)to get the... (more)Alastair Neilson
Myanmar vacation, 21 day itinerary
From
US $2,952
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The friendliness of the Myanmar people. Inle lake was the highlight of the places we visited. Tips? There are many ATM's and money changers. Local benefits? The vacation benefited local people, we tried to eat in small places and also street food. The transport also reduced environmental impact, tuk tuk's, local trains. Overall rating? Very good, hotels fine except for one. (more)Peter Thomas
