Malaysia holiday, 14 days
From
£1,028
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The visit to Georgetown, Penang was one of the most memorable. We enjoyed the guided bike ride around the ethnic areas and avoiding the traffic was a challenge! Noordin Mews was a very pleasant place to stay. The visit to the tea plantation and factory was special as was the guided walk in the 'mossy' cloud forest. The canopy walk In Taman Negara was also a challenge but disappointingly no animals were seen, well a couple of leeches and a butterfly. Tips? Pack... (more)Helen Hore

Small group adventure vacation to Patagonia
From
£3,528

Most memorable was Torres del Paine national park and climbing to the base of the granite peaks - something I'd dreamed about doing for years.

Shanghai to Hong Kong tour, discover China
From
£2,138
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We had many memorable experiences on our trip to China. Every day produced a new experience, each different and often additional things that we had not anticipated. Clearly The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, Panda's, Forbidden Palace were all amazing, but for me the peace and quiet of drifting down the river on a bamboo raft at Guilon was just perfect after the frantic traveling around China. Tips? Make sure that you have a suitcase with wheels,there is a lot... (more)Nigel Davies
Vietnam vacation, South to North
From
£1,415
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many, I would pick Ninh Binh as a fantastic example of Vietnamese landscape. My kids would probably pick the Vespa adventures tour in Ho Chi Min City and my wife the Surnise Hotel in Hoi An. Tips? I would suggest to have an idea of the itinerary and the type of trip and then contact a tour operator with a strong knowledge of the country. Tips are invaluable if traveling for the first time there. I also found extremely useful having a local guide and... (more)Ezio La Rosa

From
US $2,500
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every day was something different, we walked through jungle; rode elephants; explored caves and sailed in wooden boats, sometimes we used a wooden plank, sometimes we were knee deep in the river! We saw amazing temples and wooden huts that the locals lived in, we saw how people lived and how they dried peppers in their satellite dishes! There were sad parts too, understanding the legacy of the Vietnam war, unexploded bombs everywhere and maimed people. However, the people... (more)Colin Smith
Tailor made vacation in Peru
From

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

Memorable parts? Traveling without a car made us travel with less, slow down, and engage more with people around us.
