Tailor made vacation in Peru
From
£4,145
including UK flights
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

We loved the swim stops in the crystal clear, warm yet refreshing water. Food was amazing, guides were excellent. Overall the cruise far exceeded our expectations. Five stars! By far one of our best vacations ever. (more)Lisa Graham
The local Croatian people (crew, guides, restaurant/shop staff, etc.) were fantastic - so friendly, helpful and spoke such good English. To mark one crew member out, Tomy was a great hit with everyone, funny and with just the right level of familiarity. (more)David Hemming

Tailor made vacation in Brazil
From
£3,500

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

Sigiriya in was visually stunning, and it was fabulous to stay at a hotel with a great view of the rock in at the end of our vacation; the elephant safari in Uda Walawe was for the most part a peaceful and enjoyable afternoon; the Barefoot cafe in Colombo was a lovely place to look around and have lunch. (more)Sally Roth

It was a great vacation, and it is very hard to single out one thing. Our trip to the northeast was one of the best bits (I was honoured to be invited to join the other giggling grannies on the floor of the Tay house - if only I was as limber as they are!). (more)Margery Nzerem

From
£3,500

Memorable parts? Swimming with sea-lions in the Galapagos. Tips? Don't delay! There wasn't anything I could fault. Local benefits?

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

...our overall experience was amazing! We loved the people and the variety of Vietnamese countryside.

Mozambique adventure vacation
From
US $3,295

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
Laos tailor made vacation, culture & adventure
From
£1,995

Memorable parts? My wife and I agreed that our vacation in Cambodia was without doubt the best we have ever had. Every day was different, ranging from the magic of the temples of Angkor, the wildlife, ranging from dolphins to elephants, the sadness of the Killing Fields, the majesty of the Royal Palace to the beauty of Lonely Beach. To pick any one thing was impossible, but if forced to it was the absolute brilliance of the staff of the company at every level, in the UK organising and supporting... (more)Nigel Davies
Northern Thailand tailor made vacation
From
£1,995
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

From
£2,800

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
