Japan self guided trekking vacation, Nakasendo Trail
From
US $985
excluding flights
Experiencing a completely different culture was the highlight. (more)John Gunston
The walks through the ancient forests of Japan were above expectation, but the highlight I think was staying in the Ryokan - the charm and character of the inns and our hosts and the total immersion into a traditional Japanese experience with their tatami rooms, onsen baths and local cuisine.

Excellent, looking forward to traveling with you again. (more)Dennis Minchin

I loved the trek and am so glad I did it. I would also highly recommend the company. The organisers in Kathmandu were really welcoming, I had a great guide (Ale) who went out of his way to be helpful, all of the lodges had a nice atmosphere, lovely staff and good food. Great memories. (more)Rachel Allen

It was fantastic. We loved it (even when it rained). (more)Lucy Chadwick
Traveling with a Donkey as companion - a delightful character. We were early in the season so it was very quiet . . . . and the Alpine Flowers were wonderful. (more)John Tyler
Our children would say Kaia, our donkey who they bonded with was the most memorable. For me, the emptiness and the views. Possibly my favourite spot of all was the Chappelle St-Barnabe near Val Pelens where we whiled away a couple of hours in glorious sunshine with spectacular views. (more)Rob Booth

Santo Antao hiking vacations, Cape Verde Islands
From
US $1,029
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The hiking in Santo Antao is outstanding. The scenery is spectacular and the paths are generally pretty good with the locals always ready to lend a hand when you get lost. The local transfers of bags and hikers was generally very reliable (couple of minor issues but nothing more than we expected). The local "agent on the ground" was very good and Deborah did more than could be expected to help us to get sorted out after our delayed start. The accommodation was of a reasonable...

Hard to choose between seeing the most spectacular sunrises from my terrace with a pot of coffee or standing on a high point on a nearby hill, able to see the sea on the horizon and the lunar landscape and mountains to my left. (more)Briony Turner
The highlight was the spectacular walks offering such amazing views. During our 5 days in Lubrin we did three of the long walks and we thoroughly enjoyed walking through the foothills as well as high in the mountain tops, just stunning. (more)Annette Easton
The walking was the highlight. Very good value, excellent location but need a certain level of fitness, or at least an ability to manage a short, steep climb in and out of the village. (more)Denise Oakman

The nature in Topes de Collantes National Park and Turquino National Park was the most memorable. Overall we've had a great vacation and enjoying a short period of time in the great (current) environment of Cuba is leaving us a beautifull memory for life. (more)Annemarie Van Vliet

Memorable parts? On a personal level; learning what types of hiking and travel are ideal for my partner and me. Otherwise; spending time in Boat of Garten, a small town in Scotland.

Climbing high up into the mountains and seeing stunning views all around was the most memorable. A fantastic new experience for me and my 15 year old son. We will definitely do it again. (more)Maeve Jenkinson
The scenery throughout the trip was wonderful and the most impressive was that everyday the trails were different from the others. Being a fairly small area it was not the same scenery everyday which is something we did not expect. (more)Dylia Sasso

From
€370

Memorable parts? The entire trip was memorable however my favorite aspect to this trip was the people I met. I went on this trip alone however I met some very friendly people who were also staying at the house. And the day trips with Benoit and Corrine felt more like a friend showing me around the area rather than a small group tour, which is something I really loved! Tips? The weather was beautiful when I was there but bring layers because some of the day trips have you going to... (more)Divya Patel
