Japan self guided trekking vacation, Nakasendo Trail
From
US $985
excluding flights
We loved everything about Japan. The only negative observation was noting the overpackaging of goods, particularly with plastics. We think the Japanese people are beginning to realise the importance of tackling this problem. (more)Salim and Sheila Aftimos
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. (more)Neil Dillon

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

I did the hike together with my daughter who is ten years and I think from this travel she could more benefit for her life than from any other materialised consumerism such as buying stuff … (more)Sarah Dorkenwald

The last accommodation in the hills in the trek was the most memorable part (more)Aaron Starr
Too many memorable moments to mention - the people, the splendour of the mountain views, relaxing in the Garden of Dreams, the bustle of the streets of Thamel, and sights in and around Kathmandu. The trekking, the sight of Rhino, Crocodiles and lovely Sambar Deer at Chitwan. Pasaputinath and the atmosphere around the riverside ghats. (more)Helen Mosalski

Excellent Vacation!! (more)Jeff Wachtenheim
Standout moments were walking into the shrine at Hongu and feeling that we were part of a flow of visitors spanning centuries; having our first 'onsen' bath (followed by many more!); and learning how to debone a fish with chopsticks... (more)Janet Halliday

Self guided walking vacation in Montenegro
From
£600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Stunning views and dramatic scenery each day; the most memorable was probably walking down the hillside near Kotor with the backdrop of the mountains and the bay in front. Tips? Try to arrive early on the day of travel to orientate and do the first walk. Be self-sufficient - we did not see any other walkers one day and only 2 another and a similar number of cafes! Carry LOTS of water - we ran out when one descent took much longer than expected. Local benefits? Clearly... (more)Veronica Warner
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...

Andalucia self guided walking vacation, Spain
From
£350
excluding flights
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
Trekking holiday in Cuba
From
£270
excluding flights
The beautiful island of Cayo Levisa. And the salsa classes and dancing in the Casas de la Trova. (more)Judith Lamb
Getting to know the Cuban people and staying in their homes was an invaluable experience. By far my favourite moment was the tobacco wanting tour! We enjoyed it so much we returned 2 days later and had a great time visiting the owners of the different farms. (more)Chantal Moore
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

Fantastic vacation, can’t recommend this operator highly enough, Maria and Steve were brilliant. (more)Margaret Boulter
The most memorable part was the coastal walk and the beaches. Cadaques was exciting and we wished we were able to stay longer. It was also exciting to have completed the whole walk and we felt a sense of achievement. (more)Karen Coombs
It was all fantastic, but the bird sanctuary was my favorite. Beautifully management and interpretive signage. Peaceful stroll. (more)Kate Long

From
£598

Memorable parts? Variations of the walks from the rivers forest snow and rock boulders. Tips? Not to book in June as thunderstorms and lighting was against you every day and wet clothes and boots. Local benefits? Just been there on vacations bought in money Overall rating? Quite challenging for all 6 of us. All so altitude took a while to get used to. (more)Paul Molony
Druk Path Trekking vacation in Bhutan
From
US $2,665
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The scenery and spirituality of Bhutan is unique and a once in a lifetime experience for my family. Tips? Even in late spring weather was unpredictable. I would be trekking with shorts and a tee shirt in the morning, long pants and fleece in afternoon and wishing for ski gear in the evening before going to bed. Local benefits? Sure, every dollar spent in Bhutan on environmental friendly tourism allows the country to stay the path in rejecting other... (more)Robert Whitmore
French Riviera vacation food, walking & culture
From
€370
excluding flights
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
Scotland self guided walking vacation
From
£413.5
excluding flights
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. During our relatively short stay, we felt a sense of community and acceptance for us and the other tourist coming to the town. Tips? Stay longer. Local benefits? I do feel the local people benefited from our stay. Rebecca and Andy used local resources for food and was able to suggest local sights... (more)Patricia Gabris
Self guided walking vacation in Wales
From
£525
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The landscapes. The walking. The people met along the way. Tips? I discovered that given my level of fitness and my desire to wander en-route, and stop and explore, my ideal walking distance per day is no more than 10 miles. Local benefits? Absolutely. Overall rating? It was very well organized. Went very smoothly from start to finish. The accommodations were lovely. A few places could do with room upgrade but the people were warm welcome and willingness... (more)Dominique Bousquet
