Fabulous 10 out of 10...the best part was sailing down the Mekong River from Northern Thailand to Luang Prabang. (more)Sarah blagdon
There were many memorable moments, but we loved arriving at Hin Boun park by boat - even if we did have to do a lot of pushing! and La Folie down in the south of Laos was perfect! (more)Lesley Duncan
Tailor made vacation in Peru
From
US $4,675
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? EVERYTHING - it was just great! Tips? To inform themselves very early (6 month before booking) to get the most out of it. We therefore had the best vacations ever and people we met on our tour were just jealouse, because we could do all the cool stuff (we had organised the permits for Huayna Picchu, the Trek to Huchuy Qosqo etc.) Local benefits? Yes I do Overall rating? Great! (more)Barbara Buchegger

So hard to pick one memorable moment - the game reserve experience, the stormy sea view at De Kelders, Kirstenbosch Gardens in the early morning before breakfast on our final day, enjoying fantastic views on our drive through Western Cape (more)Sarah Mortimer
Most memorable was being so close to wild animals on the game drives at Elephant Plains...Fantastic! (more)Yvonne Chapman
The Drakensberg mountains and Didima camp at Cathedral Peak provided a magical start to the vacation, with stunning scenery, fantastic hiking and lovely accommodation; we could easily have stayed much longer there. (more)Barbara Sykes
Tailor made vacation in Brazil
From
US $6,450

We had a morning horse riding down a flooded area at the start, with our feet touching the water, and then across more open country; the wild flowers and birds were amazing. A 5.30 am canoe trip which was magical, so quiet and peaceful, seeing the beauty of the sun rising and hearing the early morning bird song; the canoe being so quiet we were able to get very close to birds before they flew. Later that afternoon we visited a fishing village down the river and were invited into their one room house... (more)Harvey Bromley
The Pantanel and Iguacu were wonderful. The Pousada at the Pantanel was great with wildlife wandering all over the place and the food was good too. (more)Linda White
The arrangements went like clockwork and all the guides and drivers were very friendly and helpful...fantastic vacation. (more)Jill Joseph

From

The daily hikes to rock pools for swimming, the early morning hikes to watch the sun rise, the fantastic food, the breathtaking scenery and our impromptu tuk-tuk and boat safari close to Sigiriya were the most memorable parts of our vacation. (more)Cecilie Gianneri
We all really enjoyed our visit to Sri Lanka and I would love to return to see more. The places you chose for us to stay were really great. They were well spaced and considered our request for some down time as well as culture. (more)Caroline Tower
The most memorable part of the vacation was the national park and the sightings of leopards and sun bears. (more)Lynn Ridgers

Mount Cook scenic flight and whale watching was the most memorable. (more)Kirsty Millard
My husband and I did a 2 day horse trek and we had a ball. Then landing on a glacier in a ski plane was awesome. Can't overlook the wonderful people we met everywhere, they made the trip! My personal favorite place was Arthur's Pass. (more)Cathy Shiner
Northern Thailand tailor made vacation
From
£2,500
excluding flights
Memorable parts? It was all fabulous but real highlights were our guide Nui, the cooking class in Chiang Mai and the wonderful temples everywhere Tips? Skip Lopburi, not worth it and thus avoid the long drive to Shukothai. Spend more time in Chiang Mai, it is worth it and go all inclusive for the beach part! Local benefits? Yes I did. We planned it so that we always stayed in locally run hotels (apart from BKK) Overall rating? it was really wonderful (more)Laura Leonardo

11 out of 10. The vacation provider went above and beyond and made our vacation perfect. Our guide was fantastic, all of the lodges were unbelievable, and the itinerary was perfect. (more)Kirsten Glaser

Way better than I ever could have imagined. I will be going again! (more)Carole Artis
Peru holiday, Machu Picchu, Cusco & Lake Titicaca
From
£2,295

Inca trail and Machu Picchu was the most memorable part of the vacation (more)Mandy Risso
The Andean explorer train ride from Cusco to Lake Titicaca was an excellent way to see many aspects of Peru from the city suburbs through the slums then farming communities, through the middle of market towns and past the spectacular backdrop of the Andes. (more)Jane Lines
The most lasting memory will probably be our stay on Amantani Island on Lake TitiKaka. We stayed with a family without water and electricity and it was both enjoyable as well as being an eye opener. (more)Chris Simmons
It was all highly memorable. We particularly liked our visit to a village outside Hanoi where we met with local people and were able to ask questions. (more)Alison and Paul Crowe
The tour operator is a superb company - highly recommended. (more)John Richardson
Excellent - very interesting, some spectacular scenery and great weather and people. (more)Mark Stamper
Highlights of Thailand vacation
From

Memorable parts? Trekking at the lodge in the hills of Northern Thailand (Chiang Rai province). The scenery was stunning, the Lodge vey comfortable, the trekking fun, food delicious and staff very friendly and informative. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for some adventure in Northern Thailand. Tips? Unfortunately we couldn't make the group date tours so our trip was tailor made, but based in the group tour itinaries. My main tip is to be prepared for travel in September - pack...

Southern Thailand vacation, tailor made

Memorable parts? I enjoyed breakfast right on the beach and the sunsets tremendously. In terms of activity it was probably the bamboo rafting. Tips? Do your own research when it comes to animal related activities to ensure that your money supports a truly ethical organisation. Pack a reusable water bottle, cup and/or straw. Fresh fruit shakes and smoothies are available cheaply but come in one-time use plastic. Avoid that and use water refill station to reduce the amount of plastic... (more)Sabrina Fiorini

...our overall experience was amazing! We loved the people and the variety of Vietnamese countryside. We feel that this trip was a quick tour of the country and would love to return to visit areas we did not have time to visit (e.g. the national parks) and revisit areas for longer (e.g. a home stay and trek in Sapa).

Exceptional...The trip to Halong Bay was the most exciting part of the trip. (more)Richard Mcleish
Mozambique adventure vacation
From
US $3,525
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Swimming with dolphins Tips? Be flexible and enjoy the feeling of being ruled by tides and wind on the dhow safari. Local benefits? I really hope so. The lodge is wonderful and is quite understated in what they do but they have taken a good eco stance and are an employer/supporter of the local population. I personally would like this aspect to be more explicit but I understand (and observed) that other guests might have different priorities. Overall rating? Truly... (more)Penny Horner

From

Memorable parts? Reaching the summit of Toubkal was a very rewarding experience, it had been a tough climb, having never used crampons before, but our guide Omar was excellent he always encouraged us and allowed me to dictate the pace- I was the slowest member of the party! Haggling in the souks was also fun, we did not find the sellers aggressive or pushy as they are sometimes described. Tips? Be prepared for long days of walking, you need to have stamina, although the altitude... (more)Deirdre Forde

I would definitely tell guests to make sure they stay at the Halali Camp waterhole in the evening! I just chanced it, being very tired and wanting to retire to bed. But luckily we said, "Let's just go for a half hour" and we saw 30+ elephants and 4 Black rhinos. (more)Karlyn Langjahr
Excellent! Will recommend it to anyone who isn't stuck up. It is a combination of luxury and also getting close to nature. (more)Tertia Reynecke
The wildlife at Etosha, especially seeing rhinos around the watering hole in the Halali camp after dark. Second to that would be seeing the sunset in the Namib desert. (more)Susan Molony

Marrakech was crazy but great fun. The mountains are just amazing and seeing how the Berbers farm was fascinating. Flowers, apple, cherry and irises, were everywhere. (more)Donald Stewart
Vietnam tailor made vacation
From
£2,250
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There really were many. However, for me it was probably the Vespa Adventure tour around Saigon. A really fun and exciting (and safe, so far as we were concerned) pillion ride around the city with stops at local eateries, a secret lounge (local singers) and finishing at a night club. A fantastic insight into Vietnamese city life, food and a chance to experience the organised chaos of its streets close up. Others might enjoy Angkor Wat, the Mekong cruise, halong bay or... (more)Paul Watling
A Classic Journey Through China
From
US $3,200
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Loads of highlights in our 6 week vacation: seeing pandas & the Terracotta Warriors, walking the Great Wall, sound and light show in Yangshuo, the Potala Palace in Tibet. We also found the building work around us fascinating- such a massive scale, 20 skyscrapers at a time going up plus huge road and rail building programmes. The sheer scale of everything was astounding. Tips? Research where you want to go. Local benefits? Certainly supported the local population. Overall... (more)Linda Seaton
Madagascar tailor made tour
From
£2,225

The most memorable part of the vacation was watching the river crossing of wildebeest in Tanzania. (more)Joya Chatterjee
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. (more)Stephen Osgerby
