Nepal family vacation, walking in the Annapurnas
From
US $1,799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole adventure was superb and suited our family aged 8 - 69 very well. Walking in the mountains with the entire family group was memorable and those who had not been to Nepal before promise to visit again and again. Tips? The trip was perfect and as we were a private group we were able to "tweak" the itinerary to suit us. For example adding in an extra day in Pokhara and then rafting part way down the Lower Seti added a lot to the adventure. The road to Chitwan... (more)Richard Miles

From

Great. Class time just flew by and the study was actually fun. I was a novice hiker and found the hikes to be challenging, but worth the effort. I really value the friendships I made with others participating in the program. (more)Mark Hindin
Great. We loved it and rated our time in Panes the best part of our month in Spain and Portugal. We even looked at the price of houses in the region! (more)Diane Norman
It's difficult to choose a favourite (part) as all aspects were brilliant. The course was just right with the right amount of challenge, and Ana organised the transfers, accommodation and treks efficiently. (more)Chandra Kantha

Family culture & adventure vacation to Egypt
From
£960
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Luxor was the most interesting and beautiful. Thrilling to see the Valley of the Kings, Luxor Temple and Karnak. Tips? It's very full on and you don't spend very much time in each place and in my opinion there's too little time at the key sites. Be ready for lots of early mornings, bus journeys and deadlines. The felucca trip is a huge disappointment. Local benefits? Not at all. The group unexpectedly stopped for camel rides at the pyramids and the animal... (more)Gregor Graham

Spectacular!!! Best I’ve ever had. I’m recommending Croatia as a destination, and telling everyone they MUST stay with Zoran and Blaza and with the operator. I think there’s no way to make it any better- just spectacular! (more)Karen Clark
We loved the friendly owners and the fun activities every day. The food was great and the apartment was very comfortable. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. It was the perfect, small, intimate all inclusive vacation. Everything was included and nothing was extra. Brilliant! (more)Linda Edward

The staff at the Hotel were very friendly and helpful. The guides were great . It was lovely meeting new like minded people and lovely that all the teenagers could mix too. Tips? Great family vacation, its fun doing different adventures each day (walking , biking , water rafting etc). The hotel is very basic but very clean and... (more)Anna Smith

From

Memorable parts? There were so many it's hard to know where to start but the beginning has to be hospitality of Zoran and Blazenca who were our hosts for the week. They are engaging, caring people who went out of their way to make out vacation truly wonderful. The staff who work for them are equally good in making sure that we were well looked after. This great hospitality provides a framework for some wonderful adventures - on boats, exploring Mljet and Hvar and waters around Korcula and... (more)Ann Tonks

Family vacation to India, sightseeing and safari
From
US $1,030

Memorable parts? Taj Mahal, Amber Palace, Ranthambhore National Park. Tips? Traveling in August is possible. The Monsoon did not affect us much. There are very few tourists and the countryside is green. Don't count on a good match with other families. Local benefits? To the extent that one bought or consumed local products local people benefited. Our impact on the environment was negative (flights, local travel, bottled water, pools etc). Overall rating?

Memorable parts? Seeing the enthusiasm of the children and how welcome we felt at the schools. Feeling connected to the local community and other volunteers whilst staying in the comfortable volunteers house instead of a hotel. Also the delicious authentic Indian food cooked by a lovely local lady at the house. Tips? Make time for a bit of relaxation before the project and after as the traveling is very tiring and we would have liked to have had more time to spend in India. Make... (more)Rayner McKenzie
Family vacation to China
From
US $2,873
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I can honestly say that we enjoyed it all. The quality of guiding and activities was good. Our local tour leader did a great job and was responsive to our needs - the structure and organisation enabled us to pack a lot in to the 14 days. It is really hard to pick favourites but Hong Kong was probably the least favourite part and we would have preferred more time elsewhere. The cultural/historical visits were enough to inform and illuminate without becoming too lengthy for... (more)Linda Mail

Memorable parts? The sailing and overnight camping on the feluccas was amazing and my son really enjoyed this. In fact, the itinerary was brilliant and well thought out. I really approve of what this company is trying to do. Tips? Make sure your children can snorkel before they get out there. Local benefits? Generally, although I am not sure that the 'tipping' aspect of this vacation was handled effectively despite a 'tipping' kitty being set up. Here is a selection of comments... (more)Tracy Rodericks

Memorable parts? Experiencing the real and unspoilt Spain, sampling the local food and hiking in delightful countryside. No tourists and the rustic charm of the accommodation. Tips? If you want total tranquility, the real Spain with its delicious tapas bars and restaurants and local wine ( all at amazing value!) and totally peaceful accommodation away from it all, but near enough to walk into the village, then this is the place for you. The walks were very enjoyable taking anything... (more)Ellen Common

Island hopping vacation in Croatia
From
€1,800
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A mix of good memories. Dubrovnik was stunning but quite touristy. But Korcula was so peaceful and tranquil. The local seafood was amazing and the clarity of the seawater was beautiful. All the different excursions were great fun for different reasons. Tips? It is quiet and quite remote so if you are looking for peace and calm away from it all; this is the place. Local benefits? I assume tourism is important for the locals so yes; I guess they benefitted. Overall... (more)Paul Crowther
