Moscow to St Petersburg holiday
From
US $1,280
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The overnight train from Moscow to St Petersburg. The sites of interest were amazing but in mid-summer there are too many fellow-tourists to see anything at leisure. Tips? Be prepared for a great deal of walking and using public transport, just to get to and from the places of interest. I found a folding stool very helpful. You will need to be proactive in finding places to eat, as on this particular trip there are almost no communal meals arranged. You will also... (more)Joyce Riva Joffe

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
