For me the most memorable parts are the people-to-people things, and bits of culture ... live music in a restaurant that inspires a couple to break out into some fabulous salsa dancing; and the nice connection made with our homestay family in Havana... (more)Rebecca Pollens
The most memorable moment was spontaneously being invited into a home to listen in on a jam session with the resident and their guests. We were walking around the streets of Havana taking in the street scene and heard music coming out of a home. We peeked inside the house and were extended a warm invitation to come in and enjoy the music, rum and the fried plantains all without any expectation of any kind from our hosts. (more)Gautam Biswas
The best part was Havana. Everything about Havana, the tour in the old American car was great but we loved just wondering around. (more)Jo McKeown

From
US $1,330
excluding flights
This was so much more than a vacation and I'd book again within a heartbeat. (more)Sharon Williams
It is really hard to decide of many of the memorable and exciting experiences on this vacation which one stands out the most for me. Everyday it seemed that I saw something different in the bush, unexpectedly two male cheetahs appeared one morning, then there was the cheetah with her cub, there were rhinos and rhino babies, one interesting experience for me personally was a close encounter with an Assasin Bug(reduviidae, heteroptera). (more)Cathy Bisset
The most memorable part was all the time we spent in the bush - at least 10h per day. To see the other side of the safari - i.e. not being in a traditional tourist vehicle. (more)Karin van Volen

The highlight was the views from the top of Mount Zas on Naxos and the tranquillity of Iraklia. (more)Jamie Johnson
This was the best organised walking vacation we've been on and that was totally down to the Guide - nothing was too much trouble and she went out of her way to help us. (more)Joanne Davidson
Tanzania safari vacation
From
US $3,715

All of the animals - first we saw the 'big five' and many many others! The most astonishing thing was the number of animals and their proximity. Far closer contacts than we had ever considered!! Absolutely bloody brilliant!!!!!!!!!! (more)Angela Gliddon
If you want adventure and excitement and an experience to remember forever then you will love it. (more)Kathy Miles
For animal lovers, it's paradise... We saw the big 5. The unbelievable amount of times we saw lions, some right at the side of the road seemingly oblivious to our vehicle and not one, but three leopards and two cheetahs. Beautiful. (more)Carole Charlesworth

I enjoyed it immensely. The whole week was organised in a really excellent way and was varied and fascinating. The company was great and we all gelled very quickly. (more)Linda Marlow

The most memorable moment was getting up close to a gorilla family at Volcanoes National Park; seeing white and black rhinos in Lake Nakuru NP; seeing the Wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara. (more)Alice Neeson
This is by far the best vacation I have ever been on, and I've been on quite a few! Nothing beats the natural untouched beauty of Africa, but it was the beauty of the people that helped us feel at home that I will remember most. (more)Adam Southorn
Every day was fabulous always something different... traveling with like minded people was also a good thing. (more)Valerie Koppi
Cuba tours
From
€995
excluding flights
The Cuban people were very welcoming, helpful, and friendly, taking in all the beautiful scenery, whether it be the Vinales valley, the beautiful beaches or the historic streets of Trinidad and Havana (more)Gary Lum
The highlight was the walk up El Yunke in Baracoa. In fact everything about Baracoa was lovely. The guide Norge was simply the best... A very enjoyable and educational tour. It was very good to experience the friendliness and enterprise of the people in Cuba. (more)Melsa Houston
We really enjoyed the Badada Codina hike - in Sierra Escambray. The hike was 3-4 hours... Our guide was great - telling us stories about the nature we were seeing, but also about herself and the people living in the mountains... She took us to the caves, and then to the state-run restaurant where we (surprisingly) had an amazing lunch with roasted pig, rice, Cristal and coffee & fruits at the end. (more)Beatrice Mosello
Jordan vacation, a week in Jordan
From
US $1,335
excluding flights
Jerdash Roman ruins was quite intact and impressive. But the most memorable were Petra, the walk along the Siq, and seeing the Treasury, and the Monastery. They were fantastic. Hiking up to the cliffs of Petra and the views were outstanding. (more)Ferdinand Rullan
The most memorable moment was Petra (of course) and the camel ride at Wadi Rum (it is an optional but well worth it!). Our local tour leader was excellent (knowledge of history and kept us entertained during our bus journeys), the group blended well (the best so far), trips well organised and plenty of shopping opportunities. (more)Hely Collie
Petra was the obvious highlight but we saw so many other unexpected monuments, ancient cities and fabulous landscape. Every day brought a new highlight. An excellent trip that visited as much of the country as possible squeezed into a week. (more)Alison Drew
South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition
From
US $1,330
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Monitoring and tracking the wild dogs was a most memorable experience. We'd get up early in the morning and sit in the back of an open jeep and roar off to the last sighting. It was winter. It was cold. It didn't matter as it was a big adventure and the not knowing would we find them or not? Waiting and watching for the next time. Really great fun. Tips? For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list... (more)Keith Costelloe

Vietnam small group cycling vacation
From
US $1,985
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Climbing the Hai Van pass. We all made it to the top and were supported throughout by our guide Danh who gave us cold drinks and cheered us on. The food was also great and we were treated to genuine local cuisine, all delicious. Tips? Take more money than recommend, especially if you want to take presents home or drink wine with you evening meal. Some people couldn't get money out of the ATMs so tell your bank that you are going to Vietnam. You don't really need US... (more)Cath Lysley

From

Petra and Wadi Rum trekking vacation
From
US $1,235
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Walking in the desert and the wide open space and peace and quiet. Somehow the actual rhythm of the walking was almost mesmeric and I felt I could walk for hours Tips? Big hat, suntan lotion, water 'platypus' to go in your day pack, good camera and a willingness to get on with anything that was put in front of you. Local benefits? Not sure - although local people involved in 'jeeping' our stuff around. We certainly left desert as deserted as when we arrived.... (more)Jill Marquis
Maasai Mara safari camp in Kenya
From
US $70
per person per night
Memorable parts? Arriving in the village - the warmth of the welcome, the pleasure of staying in a manyatta (mud hut). Also the activities are wonderful - walks amongst the zebra, milking cows, firing bows and arrows, lighting fires. Really good fun!! Tips? I went for 4 nights - 2 in the camp and 2 in the village. The camp is great - paraffin lamps, good food and comfy beds. You can get the lie of the land and start to get to know your hosts. But don't miss out on staying in the village... (more)Helena Smith

For me it was really the whole thing, as seeing the country where my mother and aunts were born and grew up was very interesting. I particularly enjoyed the puja at the Temple of the Tooth as our tour leader managed to get us to the front and we were also able to see the Tooth reliquary and another shrine not normally open.

Excellent variety, well run and an excellent guide... Take a good camera, you will want to photograph almost every thing you see, the island is fantastic! (more)Dianne Williams

Riding in a makorra, a flat bottomed punt like boat. through the reeds of the Delta, was one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in the world. Also wild camping there for 2 nights with our great hosts and guides. It was even better than I imagined. But I also could not help but be moved by the "smoke that thunders" or Victoria Falls.

The highlight was seeing wildlife at really close quarters - the time the leopard strolled through our camp. (more)Lis Woods
The vacation was fantastic, wildlife great, the food excellent and although no mod cons you soon realise how little we really need to live day to day and how much we take for granted over here. A very satisfying vacation. Would go again. (more)John/Cathy Baldock
