Oman highlights tour
From
2,795
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Meeting with our Omani guides and getting so much information from them. Staying in the most amazing hotel- alila hotel, jebel akhdar with stunning architecture. Scenery, views and walking were amazing. Tips? Good cover for women at the mosques but otherwise fairly relaxed for westerners. Local benefits? Some local people, not sure who owned hotels. Mass tourism does not reduce environmental impact, nor does it support conservation however hard we try. The... (more)Anne Tunwell

Watching the turtles at Ras el Jinz after dark and before dawn - both adult female turtles laying and baby turtles hatching and scurrying to the sea. Such a privilege to be part of this. (more)Martin Bigg
The entire trip was excellent and memorable. The most memorable was seeing the green turtles at night laying eggs. It was incredible! Wahiba Sands was also spectacular. (more)Sheryl Padjen
Traveling into the desert was the most memorable. Very highly. The guide was excellent, arrangements were very smooth. (more)Fiona McFarlane

Adventure vacation in Rajasthan, India
From
US $2,390
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I will never forget bicycling down some of the quite back country lanes of Rajasthan - children running across field of yellow mustard flowers to greet you as you bicycle past - pausing in a small village to meet the people weaving a beautiful rug on the huge loom - spotting a beautiful Kingfisher perched in a tree as you pause to admire. Tips? Enquire as to what you might bring along to benefit a local school or such that you might be visiting along the way! Local... (more)Mike Perry
Morocco cultural tour
From
US $948
excluding flights
Had an amazing trip, our tour guide Abdoul & driver Samira were fantastic as were all our other guides. The highlight for me was the Berber family we stayed with and meeting Abdouls family. Am grateful for the time and insight into their family lives and work loads. Met and had a fantastic time with the other people on the tour. (more)Lynette Crowe
We were fortunate to have had such a great experience...Climbing up to the Kasbah at Ait Benhaddoo and watching the sunset over the Atlas Mountains followed by the moon rising from the opposite horizon (more)Philip Leavey
Very enjoyable...Chefchaouen, meeting nomads and the Atlas Mountains scenery (more)Elizabeth Wingate

Sudan vacation
From
2,299
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The visit to Meroe. Mind blowing! The pyramids in the daytime WOW, but even better at sundown. A very big shame that there were no G&T`s to go with the atmospheric feeling of history. When you stay in tent city, it`s fantastic with the night sky and no light pollution. Eating and sleeping, with the stars, all around you, then you have arrived in paradise.If you are lucky to go on this trip and have Kahlid as your guide, then you are in for a treat.If you think the desert...

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. (more)maria camilo

From
US $665

The best bit was climbing a sand dune after a camel trek to our camp for the night...Excellent. No criticisms whatsoever. (more)Roddy MacLeod
Great trip for anyone looking for a variety of experiences - desert, mountains, city - packed into a week. The camel trip was a memorable experience, as was glamping in the desert and star-gazing. (more)Kate Charles
Walking in the Atlas in general was terrific with the beautiful scenery. Sleeping outside under the stars was also amazing... Second to none! (more)Jennifer Baker Dallison
Sudan vacation, Desert Explorer
From
US $4,715
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of my journey in Sudan was the Sudanese people, I have never experienced just a warm welcome in my life, it will for ever stay with me. Tips? Just book it, don't ponder about it and worry about safety, I never felt as safe and for me it was a trip of a lifetime. Local benefits? The trip was linked with a local tour operator, who were directly involved or had links with local projects just as schools and education. Also they employed... (more)Cathal Murphy
Morocco Atlas & Sahara 4WD tour
From
US $2,600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole trip was memorable and exciting. We experienced the Sahara in all it's glory, the majestic High Atlas, gorges, high mountain passes and tiny villages where the local people live and work in the fields as they have done for centuries. The itinerary was full of highlights. The time spent in the desert was particularly memorable. Most tours take you to the edge of the Sahara late in the day so you can 'overnight' there and then you are taken back to 'civilisation'... (more)Marilyn Wane
Budget camel safari in Morocco
From

excluding flights
It was a good vacation with an insight into a different world which was the highlight of it for us (more)Gabriella Guglielminotti
My daughter's sheer delight in "her" camel (called Yellow) & my son's face as we set off on the camels on the 1st day, his 13th birthday. My children playing blind mans bluff with the younger 3 Fayous, watching them all wrestling in a heap on the floor. (more)Kirk Hutton
While we only stayed with the family properly for one night, they were equally warm, inviting, embracing and served up a fantastic couscous...My husband and I truly enjoyed the silence and peacefulness of the 5-day journey. I like to sum it up by likening it to a 5-day interior camping trip, with a camel instead of a canoe. We were in Morocco for a whole month, and this was definitely our favourite part. It is definitely not for everyone, but it was perfect for us! (more)Erin Kelly
Namibia safari
From
US $2,165

Sossusfly and the waterhole at Okaukuejo was the highlight. (more)Maryanne Roach
The most memorable part was seeing a leopard "in the wild" for the first time. I have been trying for over 35 years! (more)Linda Adams
The most memorable part of the vacation was spotting the leopard. We would have missed it & driven on, but the leaders saw it & we went back. We had to be patient because the leopard hid in a culvert, but eventually came out. (more)Alan Reimer

From
US $1,315

Sitting round the camp fire at night - so still and so many stars. (more)Angela Allan
Walking in the desert and the wide open space and peace and quiet. Somehow the actual rhythm of the walking was almost mesmeric and I felt I could walk for hours (more)Jill Marquis

The most memorable part of the vacation was the camel ride into & out of the desert - not knowing whether I would survive the lurches down over the top of the dunes! (more)Kathleen Culliton
Uzbekistan holiday, silk road and desert
From
2,095
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Experiencing a rare storm in the desert on the journey to the shores of the Aral Sea. The tracks soon turned into raging streams, there was thunder and lightning and even hail. We had been prepared for dust but the 4X4 drivers quickly adapted to floods and mud so we had an exciting off road experience. Tips? The wild camping and spending a night in a yurt contrast well with sightseeing in the fabulous cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand. Be adaptable and enjoy... (more)Diana Rybinski
Oman vacation, Forts and Deserts of Oman
From
2,250
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The desert, mountains and hospitality in Oman. Tips? Distances are long in Muscat so make sure you book a hotel with a convenient location. We made a tailor-made contract with the operator. However, the tour was subcontracted to a local travel agent - not ideal when problems arise! Often there was a miss-match between given itinerary and actual plan, not that we missed anything but somehow annoying. Book your vacation directly and you are in control! Local benefits? Not...

Rajasthan desert adventure
From
US $1,625
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All visits to Rajastani palaces, forts and havelis were a fantastic experience, especially since the city guides were really good and very excited to tell us all about it. The Taj Mahal is certainly a highlight, but my top experience was visiting the living and breathing city within the walls of Jaisalmer fort. Other highlights for me included the miniature painting school in Udaipur, the carpet and block printing workshop in Jaipur, the observatory in Jaipur and the makrana... (more)Monica Filkova
Vacation in Mongolia
From
US $2,599
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The solar eclipse. Also visiting a nomadic family one night. Tips? Not really applicable as a one-off trip to see solar eclipse and Mongolia along the way. General tips would be Mongolia is a big country with poor infrastructure. Make sure your trip doesn't involve too much driving or you will spend your whole time on a bus and not out seeing things. Covering 400km in one day, while possible, is not pleasant. Local benefits? Yes and no. It was run by a Mongolian... (more)Sam Grainne
