Galapagos adventure vacation
From
US $4,599

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
The opportunity to see so many varieties of flora and fauna in their native environment, the opportunity to swim with penguins and sea lions, and the wonderful array of settings in which to view all. (more)Van Schwiebert
Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari
From
US $849
excluding flights
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
History, culture & wildlife of India vacation
From
£1,336
excluding flights
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
My stay at the Wild Mahseer in Assam was very special. Great hospitality, beautiful lodgings and interesting environmental projects. (more)Liz Mcmanus
I have told the vacation provider that they do a great job . (more)Joel Montague
Costa Rica tour
From
US $1,454

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
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
Costa Rica is the most environmentally sympathetic country I have visited. (more)Chris Brougham

From
£3,785

Fantastic! It was incredible to have everything pre-arranged and all the logistics sorted out for us, so relaxing and just what we needed after a hectic wedding! Most memorable was staying with the Iban tribe and seeing the orangutans in Sarawak, and Borobudur at sunset in Java. (more)Portia Lloyd
Really brilliant - it was our honeymoon and we really had a fabulous time. It was so well organised by the operator which took a lot of the stress out of traveling which was exactly what we needed with such a complicated itinerary. The hotels we stayed in were second to none - really fabulous and we were spoilt rotten! (more)Erin Bunting
Seeing the orang-utans at Tanjung Puting National Park was the highlight, followed closely by the couple of days spent on board the boat to Komodo Island. The orang-utans were a joy to watch and we felt privileged to see these animals in their natural habitat. (more)Kathryn White

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
Highlights of Madagascar vacation
From
US $3,335

Memorable parts? Seeing the lemurs in the forest and watching them playing around like our children was fantastic, but most exciting was how different the culture and scenery was to ours in the UK. Tips? Relax and take all you see in. Get out and meet the people. Local benefits? Yes. We traveled with Exodus who use local services so employ and pay the local people. We also stayed in hotels and ate in restaurants run by local people. Overall rating? Brilliant vacation!... (more)Stella Jales
Norway wildlife vacation, walking safari
From
£400
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Finding the pug marks of a really large bear in the forest in the Fulufjellet National Park. Seeing wild elk. Learning about the wildlife from the ants to the wolverines. Tips? Dane is a fantastic host, committed environmentalist, excellent tracker, immensely knowledgeable and totally committed to providing a great trip. We didnt need torches as we went in the last week in June when it is light 24/7, but a plane-style eyepatch would make sleeping easier. Local... (more)Julian Walford
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
Costa Rica tour, activity and nature
From
£1,150

Memorable parts? Staying at Tortuguera - in the forest, only accessible by boat, sharing the site with various monkeys, sloths, birds (including macaws and toucans) and other creatures. Tips? Take some warmer, waterproof clothing if you intend to visit Monteverde - a great cloud forest, but can be cold and wet. Local benefits? Most tours were run by local people, and hotels locally owned. Overall rating? A good combination of destinations. (more)Wendy English

The tapir emerged from the forest and remained at the clay lick drinking water for an extended period of time. Simply remarkable. (more)Robert Roberto
We loved the Eco-lodge that we stayed at, the Napo Wildlife Center. It was beautiful, well appointed and our guides were absolutely top notch. We learned an incredible amount and got to experience a wonderful place with wonderful people. (more)Elizabeth Essner

Seeing a sloth bear whilst on safari in Yale was my highlight. The vacations with your guidance was a total success. Saw many things and will take home lots of good memories. Saw many things and will take home lots of good memories. (more)Steve Daish
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
Wolverine photography tour in Finland
From
£1,495
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing a total of 5 different wolverines up close in a few hours - amazing when there are only about 150 in the whole country. Tips? Take plenty of memory cards because you'll need them if you are as lucky as I was. Local benefits? Yes - the money went towards the cost of providing a feeding station throughout the year. This feeding station not only supported wolverines but also bears, ravens and other wildlife. Overall rating? Fantastic - the wildlife... (more)Christine Cheney

Eyre Peninsula tours in South Australia
From
AU $940
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Swimming as the only group in Baird bay with sea lions and dolphins, who chose to come to see us - we were not inflicted on them - so responsible encounter. Tips? Be aware that the 6 day Eyre Peninsula trip is sandwich in with two other tours - you go out of Adelaide for 2 days with one group (heading to Perth) and then are transferred to another group on day three (who are heading to Adelaide). Admittedly you go to different places on the way back, but also your... (more)Karen Shaw
Brazil wildlife vacation, tailor made
From
£4,500
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Traveling in the Amazon, unfortunately they had the worse floods in 60 years which made getting ashore more difficult but exciting!! Tips? Go for it!! But plan well ahead and take the appropriate clothing etc. Local benefits? When in Rio a trip to the Flavella'a was beneficial to the local people, as I understand that the tour operator paid a percentage, plus the visitors purchased drinks in their local bars. Also when at the Eco Lodge in the Amazon visit... (more)Clive Pagett
