Northern Lights photography vacation in Iceland, coast & ice
From
£2,950
excluding flights
We were lucky on day one to shoot the Northern Lights. We never saw them again. The Ice Beach was an amazing experience but the waterfalls and scenery generally was amazing. We were lucky enough to have received a large dumping of fresh snow which made the country spectacular. (more)Viv Gower
We were lucky enough to get a magnificent aurora display over Kirkjufell on evening 2. That probably stands out from all of the other awe-inspiring places we went to. (more)Roy Hodson
I loved the wildness of Iceland. The weather we encountered the week I was in Iceland was raw. It snowed most of the week and sometimes the road was closed. The weather allowed us to see Iceland with few tourist around. It was great! (more)Nancy Hardie
Pilates wellness retreat in Greece
From
£790

The Pilates, meditation and Qi Gong sessions were held in a stunning setting on the terrace by the water - morning and evening, the lapping Pelion sea worked its spell. Ioannis the instructor/therapist/healer is a special individual, and his instruction is imbued with gentle humour. (more)Janine Hollins
There is something very special about the tour operator we went with. It's a complete getaway. You can't help but feel calm and slow down. I was there for 2 weeks - the pilates/wellness week with the marvellous Ioannis and then the yoga week with the angel like Molly. (more)Alison Fraser

From

The bike ride to the little villages was my most fun experience and to see how they make rice wine, rice paper, bamboo sticky rice, etc. Also really enjoyed the cooking class the last night. Fun to try so many different foods. (more)Amy Cochran
Best bits: There were so many! The walks through food stalls, the cooking lessons, the impromptu stops of the bus to get more street food and going to a BBQ with locals at Siem Reap. (more)Lauren Supplee
Burma photography tours
From
US $4,300
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A brilliant itinerary! Tips? Local benefits? I do not feel that we reduced environmental impact or supported conservation at all. All the local people that we invited to take part in the photo shoots were offered payment although I do not feel that this was making any sustainable change. Overall rating? Truly magical experience with a spectacular photographer. (more)Nikki Biggs
Finland Northern Lights vacation, Wilderness Auroras
From
£1,475
including UK flights
The highlight was everything! from start to finish. (more)Sian Minns
Obviously seeing the Aurora was the best part of the vacation however the Husky safari was a big tick off the bucket list. This was indeed a once in a lifetime experience! Our vacation was the best and something we will never forget. (more)Andrew Allen
The highlight was the Northern lights - though husky sledging pretty good and reindeer herding exceeded expectations. (more)Steve Killick
Portugal yoga & massage vacation

Excellent! This is a vacation for people who want or need to offer time to themselves, stepping out of their daily life for a week and literally cleansing their body on every level, whether physically, mentally or spiritually. (more)georgina porro

The wonderful hospitality that Marina gave us, and the unbelievable meals that Gianluca prepared, some with our help. It is really impossible to pick one thing. The whole week was absolutely wonderful. (more)Peggy Harrison
Had a truly amazing time, in spite of the variable weather. Learning to cook lots of new dishes, amazing food, and meeting likeminded people from the USA and Europe. Such a fun yet relaxing trip. (more)Suzy Dobson
We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the cooking classes, delicious meals, the excellent tours of nearby villages and towns, the spacious and comfortable rooms and the beautiful rural setting in Umbria. Podere le Olle is a truly memorable experience. (more)Susan White
Yoga vacation in Portugal
From
€800
excluding flights
It was all excellent - this is a holistic experience, the excellent food every day, the beautiful, peaceful location set in a V shaped valley with spectacular views, river to swim in, walks to be had, the retreat venue itself, the staff working there, the tipis, and last but not least, the excellent yoga and pilates tuition and massage treatments. (more)Liz Hughes
I had no expectations other than to go with the flow and listen. Andrew and Vonettq have fulfilled and are fulfilling their dream in such a manner as to share wholeheartedly with those who drop in. I arrived full of flu, wrapped up to the nines. Some called me the eskimo, with two little eyes appearing through all the head layers. (more)Caroline Yuill
The highlight was wild swimming in some beautiful locations along the river and an amazing Thai massage given by Mars. (more)Georgina Loughrey

Overall just absolutely amazing. As a nature lover, traveler and with an interest in knowing new cultures and interacting with local people I really appreciated the program of the trip. As a beginner in photography I really appreciated the patient and willing attitude that Ian had on this tour. (more)Henriette Hradocka
Staff excellent and very friendly and helpful. (more)Greg Morrison

Cuba salsa dance holiday
From
£1,525
excluding flights
The dancing was amazing, hilarious, fun and depending on how much you put into it - painful due to bad shoes! But totally worth it. The people there - I can't describe how warm and welcoming they are. The dancers, the guides.... everybody I met in fact. (more)Britt Voll
One of the best moments was probably snorkeling in the Bay of Pigs area near Play Giron, and then of course all the salsa dancing, both in classes and in the evenings! (more)Anniina Simula
Clearly the dancing lessons were the most memorable. (more)Susan Nagen
Northern Lights, glaciers & ice photography holiday Iceland
From
£2,700
excluding flights
I enjoyed every single day of my stay in Iceland!! One of my favourite days was going to the Ice cave, it was a pretty epic trek to get there, going in a massive truck with giant wheels, and then traversing across a glacier with crampons (which I couldn't get used to), and using a ice axe, made me feel like a proper adventurer! (more)Samantha Wilson
I had not been to Iceland before so the trip was a new and memorable experience. Probably the opportunity to photograph the Northern Lights with expert tuition was the highlight. (more)Roger Webb
It was a great experience. The most memorable was the time spent around the glacier. Particularly the ice cave and the ice beach. (more)Arturo de Frias

(more)Juul van Hoof
Undoubtedly the most memorable and exciting part of the trip was the food, Sri Lankan food is spicy, flavourful and delicious. (more)Smita Shah
A most enjoyable experience, getting much closer to the local culture than a standard trip. (more)Andrew Jackson

Difficult to choose.. but Sunrise looking over the ruins of Bagan watching many hot air balloons appear over the horizon was probably the most memorable. I would describe the vacation as a photographic adventure taking in many of the sights of Mayanmar! The accommodation was good standard and trip matched my expectations. (more)Elspeth Robertson
The most memorable was the size and variety of this fabulous country and the warmth of the people plus the food! All great making Myanmar very special. (more)Linda Bailey

Excellent...perfect in so many ways. . There is an energy that runs through the place and you feel connected every waking moment; as you find a quiet moment by one of the water pools, or take a walk with one of the dogs, attending a yoga class, enjoying a good night’s sleep. It’s a healing place like no other. (more)sophia Hannay

Writers retreat in Andalucia, Spain
From
€800
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many memorable moments during the week the 7 of us spent there, but one in particular proved very exciting. We had a evening of Star Gazing with the guidance of a local astronomer, who brought along his high powered telescopes. Within moments of our "Gazing" we saw a "Shooting Star" - a meteor, shoot across the sky. For me though the highlight of the evening was looking through a powerful telescope at Saturn and her rings. Memorable indeed! Tips? The Hotel... (more)Gayle Bell

Memorable parts? The quality of the guitar tuition was outstanding, not just the playing but the lessons are structured around your level and taught extremely well.
