This trip will forever stay in my heart. Incredible. I would go again tomorrow if I got the chance. (more)Helen Connolly
Fantastic - it's more than a vacation and is so different to anything else I have ever done. South Georgia is an amazing place. The beaches were packed with tens of thousands of penguins and they weren't afraid to come right up to us. The scenery in Antarctica is beautiful. (more)rebecca allcock

South Africa safari vacation, 14 days
From
£3,295
excluding flights
EXCELLENT as it met all my requirements. I did not want to stay in lodges that looked like American hotels. The tented camps made us feel closer to the environment... I have been in Lodges in other parts of South Africa and other than the game I felt I could have been at a 5 star US hotel... so this was what I was looking for. (more)Eve Solomon
The incredible wildlife viewing opportunities was the highlight. The passion for conservation shown by the guides and the safari camp employees. (more)Laura Johnston
Sitting in an open safari vehicle, surrounded by around 20 elephants, one of which was so close it would have been possible to touch its trunk. Also, having 14 days in which to learn more about the wildlife and ecology of the Kruger area. Opportunity to see the 'Big 5' plus many of the 'Small 5' and the 'Ugly 5'. (more)Dave Sewell

Being able to walk to a great family beach (Arrieta) with spanish vacationmakers mainly. Our teenagers felt free to go swimming, body boarding & surfing. After a day of swimming or discovering the island it felt good to come back to the Eco Cabin with its pergola and small garden with fruit trees (fig, orange, mango, apple). (more)Sophie Nelson
It is a wonderful place for a family vacation with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground. (more)Michelle Levene

Burma cultural vacation
From
£1,849

Hard to choose a single aspect of a fantastic vacation, but probably the elephants would edge it. The cycle ride in Mandalay was really cool too. Fantastic experience, the memory bank is maxed out and the euphoria will linger on for a long time. (more)Christine and John Brooks
There were many highlights. The people - and elephant washing - and the cycle ride around Mandalay - and the balloon ride over Bagan - and the train ride etc etc - everyday was a brilliant adventure. (more)Angela Allan

Peloponnese family activity vacation in Greece
From
€720
excluding flights
This was a great vacation...Great guides for the overall trip especially Mike and also the river rafting and kayaking. (more)Mark FitzGerald
It was lovely and authentic, not mobbed with foreign tourists, we felt we got to meet local people in their setting. Fabulous part of Greece with so much to see and do. Tripoli is not a tourist destination, which was nice in some ways but we stayed there a little long, the hotel could do with a pool, could be nice to also have a couple of nights elsewhere. (more)Julie Dickerson
Absolutely wonderful. Every day was different, but wonderful. We really enjoyed the scenery, the food, the people and the activities. (more)Angela Terrill

Interacting with our hosts, Gareth and Fiona - their charming children and the other guests - and the splendid scenery and hiking in the area. (more)Melanie Faith
Really enjoyed the Via Ferrata. The vacation was terrific. The weather was unseasonably hot but having a pool really helped. There were some local short bike rides (6-10 miles) as well as much longer tours for the more ambitious. (more)Caroline Vibert
The boys loved the Canyoning which we did with two other families and the location was chosen for the age of participants. The others would say the water pArk or the horse riding was the best part. (more)Rebecca Fleming

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

Excellent...perfect in so many ways. .

It’s a healing place like no other. (more)sophia Hannay
