Whale Watching and Wildlife Safari was the most memorable part of this trip (more)Phil Miller

All the parts of the vacation were good. Excellent trip. (more)Lucy Hadfield
It was all exciting really from the beautiful beachside hotels to the wildlife parks. At Palagama beach the food was amazing especially when I was shown their own vegetable garden and we picked fresh vegetables that were cooked as individual curries for my dinner that evening. I felt as if I had been away for at least a month - I had seen and done so much in that two weeks. (more)Susie Barrett
Excellent trip (more)Melanie Michel
Maldives luxury resort
From
US $2,999

Memorable parts? Snorkelling with Manta Rays. You need to be a very strong swimmer to get in the sea with the Mantas as they move very quickly. You also need to be confident with your snorkelling equipment as you will need to get it on/off very quickly. The marine biologist who co-ordinated the trip is very supportive and gives you lots of advice on how to be in the water. Tips? The Maldives is an expensive destination so you need to factor this into your vacation spending budget.... (more)Elayne Farmer

The highlight was staying in Ella and walking in the hill country and snorkelling in the Maldives. Very good, loved the Maldives. (more)Annmarie Woodcraft
The most memorable part of our vacation was snorkelling in the Maldives. It was amazing to see sharks, fish and sea turtles on the reef. It was a surreal experience...Overall, I would rate our vacation 10/10. We had a great time in all the countries we visited, the locals were very friendly and hospitable. (more)Tracy Watson
Flying in a seaplane over the Maldives and landing in the lagoon by Filitheyo Island where we spent an amazing week was the most memorable part. (more)Greg Harris

Maldives vacation, wildlife cruise
From
US $2,865
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Snorkelling with a group of feeding manta rays for about 40 minutes. Unforgettable. Tips? Take a few days on either side - go to one of the local islands. Actually - take the days beforehand, as it's hard to imagine anything living up to the boat trip (bearing in mind that we'd never been on a snorkelling trip or anything like this, so we can't compare). Local benefits? All of the above to some extent. Guide was very aware of environmental impact, we also... (more)David O

From
US $1,449

Memorable parts? So many things were memorable... We were very well looked after by our tour operator who made sure we had all the information before our arrival and until the day of our arrival with the airport transfer, and having someone physically there to greet us at Male airport to make sure we got on out last flight. After arrival Ruth from our tour operator was also on hand if we had any questions. Being driven straight to our room when we arrived very late at night after 27 hours... (more)Katarina Nielsen

From
US $1,299

Memorable parts? Snorkelling in the reefs, staying on islands that were not touristic and having heaps of fun with my guide Kokko Tips? Be prepared to spend time chilling out in the afternoons as it is hot. Local benefits? yes, staying in local guest houses, eating meals with families and using local boats and crews benefitted the community. The only negative is the reliance on bottle water and the subsequent waste generated. Overall rating? I loved it and will definitely... (more)Vicki Carmichael

Sri Lanka vacation with boutique hotels
From
£2,095
including UK flights
Memorable parts? We were bold over by the quality of the hotels. Tips? The vacation is ideal for those wishing to relax and take things at a leisurely pace. Be aware most of the hotels are located in fairly remote locations so not ideal for sightseeing or activities but our driver was very good at suggesting an itinerary that suited us and fitted plenty of things on our travel days maximising our time. Local benefits? Not directly but we did visit and support some environmental... (more)Stuart McFarlane

From
£2,490
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Seeing leopards drinking at the waterside and sloth bears at Wilpattu National Park. Tips? We went on a wildlife tour of Sri Lanka and suggest you give yourselves a few rest days between safaris to recuperate as well as giving you more time to enjoy the resorts where you are staying. Local benefits? Safari guides and drivers were employed from the local community as were hotel staff. The hotels where we stayed were environmentally aware. The National Parks... (more)Kim Plumb

Madagascar family adventure holiday, canoes & camping
From
US $1,850

There was just so much more to see and hear than we imagined Tsingy National Park: Such a unique and bizarre landscape. Chameleons and birds: Without the guides we doubt we would have seen so many but the number and variety was astonishing. Whale watching and snorkeling with the turtles and Angle Fish camping on the riverside and the meal prepared that night after the canoe trip. (more)Eric Gussin
The highlight was the interaction with the people and nature that surrounded us. Great expedition destination. (more)Angel Rodriguez

Excellent... witnessing the Indri lemurs calling to each other in the trees in front of us and rafting the river rapids were probably my top two memories (more)Kerry Abbiss
Everything, perhaps taking the freight train at 2am alongside mountains of bananas. From the point of landing to our sad farewells it was an unforgettable adventure...Unforgettable. (more)David Phillips
Madagascar family adventure holiday
From
US $3,250
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hearing Indri lemurs call out to each other in the forest, and then seeing them above our heads! Tips? Be relaxed - sometimes you will see things, sometimes not - the national parks are not zoos. Be prepared - sometime there will be no electricty, usually there willbe no wifi, no clothes washing facilities unless you do it yourself in the shower....Madagascar is a very poor developing country, you can't expect things like at home, but keepan open mind and enjoy the...

Madagascar trekking and rafting expedition
From
US $3,795
excluding flights
We canoed for two days, negotiated rapids and camped at night on the sandy banks beside the river. The locals were intrigued by these strange foreigners who chose to sleep in tents rather than a hotel but readily came to our rescue when our cooking pots sank to the bottom of the river! (more)Rosemary Llewellin
Most obviously just the many people we met. Everybody says it but it really is true, what a lovely lovely bunch of people to have had the privilege to meet. On the wildlife front, I think the spitting cobra trumped even the komodo dragons! (more)Hayley Fagg
Boutique Seychelles vacation, Praslin & La Digue
From
£2,283
including UK flights

Seychelles vacation, Bird Island & Praslin
From
£2,450
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Cycling around the Northern-most point of La Digue, Seychelles, and discovering Giant Tortoises crossing the road to hang out on the beach. Tips? If you want to see the Coco de Mer forest on Praslin Island, visit Fond Ferdinand in preference to the Valle de Mai Nature Reserve - it's less busy and cheaper, and you will see similar things, have great personal service and get far fewer mosquito bites! Local benefits? Yes, especially on Praslin where there were... (more)Petra Olliffe

Difficult to say as there were so many wonderful moments. The quality of the accommodation was very high. The guide and driver professional and extremely knowledgeable. And of course the lemurs were glorious. (more)Antonia Lopez
Excellent - this was an amazing trip to see the lemurs. We saw 16 species, most in fairly close proximity as well as other wildlife. (more)Catherine Lee
Everyday was different and memorable. The Madagascar vacation was an absolute success. Wonderful country and a lot a lot to offer to the tourists. (more)Katarina Bakoova
Madagascar tailor made tour
From
£1,888
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Very difficult to say. Spotting lemurs in the forest is certainly memorable but is that any better than the unique rock formations of the Grand Tsingy or the sheer pleasure of watching country life as you drive between reserves? The whole fortnight was memorable. Tips? Be prepared to start early in the morning when the lemurs are more active. We did so and saw much more than some other groups in our hotels who set off later and came back disappointed. You need... (more)Stephen Osgerby
