Northern Lights photography vacation in Iceland, coast & ice
From
£3,150
excluding flights
Excellent. I saw a lot of Iceland and had plenty of time and opportunity to take photographs. James was an excellent photography tutor and guide and provided lots of expert guidance, useful suggestions and encouragement. (more)Pamela Harris
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

This vacation is perfect for switching off - the idea of the wellness together with the Pilates is to relax your mind and body in a beautiful location. (more)Helen Wood
The most memorable was being taught Pilates and meditation by Ioannis Davros. (more)Frances Lawrence
I loved the whole thing. The Pilates, meditation and Chi Gung tuaght by Ionos made me feel like a new woman after the week in Pelion...the sumptuous home cooking and amiable comraderie around the square table hosted by Pip and Nick...the splendid accommodation with views across the water to mountains. There is no one stand out. It was as a delight all round. (more)Steph Tchan

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

From
£1,475

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

From
US $1,380

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
Orangutan photography in Borneo
From
£2,175

We had the privilege of seeing orang-utans, and a whole host of other wildlife, up close and personal on a daily basis. A wealth of magical moments that I shall treasure forever! There were only 7 of us on the trip, so we got the chance to get to know each other really quickly... (more)Nikki Biggs
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

From
US $4,300

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

Tuscany pasta and risotto making
From
£700
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The practical cooking activities led by Oli and ably supported by Flo were an absolute pleasure - equipment and supplies were perfect, guidance was very patient, and the results were delicious! It was fun that another mother and daughter duo made up the group and we got on like a house on fire! Tips? There is no hope of losing weight on this vacation - but the diet can wait! The visits and activities organised by Oli and Flo are very informative and provide real insight... (more)Philippa Schofield

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

From

Just excellent. This is the second small group tour we have done... It is definitely the way to see lots and have the burden of organisation taken off of you. I don't think I could have fitted as much in if I had tried to organise it myself... (more)Peter Jeffery
The Greek people we met were the most authentically friendly people I have ever met on my travels. The restaurant and site recommendations were excellent...Excellent tour. (more)Mindy Bell
Les hôtels étaient bien choisis et de bonne tenue. Le tour à vélo, le cours de cuisine, le pique-nique, les visites du vignoble et de la grotte étaient bien sympathiques pour varier les plaisirs. Circuit très agréable que nous recommandons vivement. (more)Patrick IRLINGER
Yoga vacation in Portugal
From

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
Deeply relaxing. Beautiful scenery... The food was wonderful. It wasn't the main reason for going but every meal was a delight! (more)Daisy Powling

Cuba salsa dance holiday
From
£1,525
excluding flights
It's a great vacation. Leave behind any preconceptions and you'd love it. The most memorable part was meeting the dance teachers. (more)Nuri Gene-Cos
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

Excellent...perfect in so many ways. .

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? It was described accurately as an expedition! Very exciting and fascinating country. Hard work in parts though. Tips?

Take all the advice on hand regarding coping with altitude I found Power banks were essential for me - I took two and charged them up at every opportunity Take a few munchies - like Naked Bars Local benefits? Totally on all counts. Overall... (more)Pamela Jones
