Galapagos adventure vacation
From
US $4,999
excluding flights
Too many (highlights) to mention - maybe snorkelling beside Kicker Rock (Galapagos) seeing giant turtles; or zip lining 40 meters above the cloud forest floor (Ecuador) (more)Helen Honeyball
The highlight was the snorkelling with penguins sharks rays sea lions turtles cormorants pelicans and then of course the fish. Excellent. Completely incredible. The yacht was amazing and the crew were great. Our guide was so professional but fun he made the trip so interesting. (more)Sarah Daly
So much to list! I think snorkelling with the turtles on Galapagos and having humming birds at my finger tools feeding from a nectar pot was the most memorable. Unbelievably fantastic! All enhanced by the fantastic guides we had in Quito, Galapagos and Bella Vista Cloud forest! (more)Chris Goldthorp
Indonesia wildlife vacation, primates and dragons
From
US $3,335
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All the vacation was memorable but for me: going into the rainforest and seeing truly wild orangutans and a family of foraging Thomas Leaf Monkeys close up without a care of being watched. Snorkelling in the Komodo National Park and seeing so many beautiful fish and colourful corals. Walking on Komodo and Rinca and have a fairly large 'dragon' purposefully stride towards us. Tips? Take plenty of insect repellant and lightweight clothes. When in Sumatra make sure you... (more)Val Golding

From
US $3,255

I had a great time! We had a great mix of personalities within our group, saw plenty of wildlife and ate lots of great food. (more)Lee Truong
The great diversity of this country, the climate and geographical changes, together with the plants, birds and mammals. (more)Alan Nunn
The highlight was Tortuguero National Park. An excellent trip; traveling for circa 3 to 4 hours every other day was acceptable and allowed approximately a day and a half at each new location. Guide was well informed, articulate and considerate. (more)Chris Schaefer

From
£1,336
excluding flights
It was a very good vacation, people were welcoming, helpful and friendly. Rajat was very efficient and helpful. (more)Alessandra Spera
We got exactly what we wanted! I hesitate to call it a 2-week vacation in southern India. It was an immersive, fulfilling and rewarding travel experience which we'd happily do again. (more)Trevor Wright
Probably the most exciting thing was seeing two tigers (on separate visits - one on the boat safari and one on a land safari) in Nagarhole National Park - astonishing. But equally memorable was the temple tour in Madurai - it felt a privilege to visit when so many pilgrims were also worshipping at the temple. (more)Lynn Crowe
Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari
From
US $849

Too many memorable moments to mention - the people, the splendour of the mountain views, relaxing in the Garden of Dreams, the bustle of the streets of Thamel, and sights in and around Kathmandu. The trekking, the sight of Rhino, Crocodiles and lovely Sambar Deer at Chitwan. Pasaputinath and the atmosphere around the riverside ghats. (more)Helen Mosalski
The whole vacation was memorable, however I especially enjoyed the trekking and being able to see the 'real' Nepal away from the city. (more)Fiona Williams
I loved every bit of it - the challenges and sweat during the trekking, the incredible kindness and patience of local people (more)Martina Pilikova
Costa Rica tour
From
US $1,710

All of it was memorable...each place visited is so different... it's hard to choose. Monteverde for its lush vegetation, but boy can it get cold at night...and tortuguero for its wildlife. (more)Linda Whittingham
Seeing turtles was the most exciting part of the vacation (more)Fiona Weir
For my husband it was the amazing variety and beauty of the birds. For myself it was the excitement of seeing an armadillo at close quarters, although all the wildlife was extraordinary! (more)Kimberley and Barry Brown

Colombia holiday, tailor made
From
€1,920
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Loved the Colombian people; loved Bogota; Medellin & Cartagena. Tips? Be aware in advance of the length of time it takes to get served in restaurants and the blandness of the food. Also we found the guides to be uninspiring. Colombia needs to invest in these areas in order to drive tourism in a positive was. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? It was good and very enjoyable overall - we saw a huge amount of the country and had many different experiences. (more)Helen Cosgrove

Falkland Islands holiday
From
£2,463
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Everything was memorable from the penguins on the Falkland Islands to the turtles on Ascension Island. Learning about the very different cultures in these places was something life changing and the welcome we received everywhere was the best I have ever known. Tips? The flight from Santiago is very long (14 hours) and as LANChile won't let you book single flights and so charge for return it is better to travel both ways by Airbridge from Brize Norton. This does away... (more)Di Lammas
Nepal Tiger Safari holiday

The most memorable was the whale watching. To see the largest creatures on earth from maybe 20 or 30 metres away is a real privilege and to see them do the deep dive with the tail in the air is a iconic image. Also seeing leopards in the wild was a memorable moment. (more)Nick Baker
