Memorable parts? Experiencing the rich variety and beauty of Kerala Tips? Give yourself enough time in each place to really experience it and do some walking - don't travel too quickly! Local benefits? Yes - by staying in homestays we felt the money went into the hands of local people rather than big coimpanies Overall rating? It was great - smoothly organised, relaxed and enjoyable but we experienced much of the rich variety and beauty of Kerala (more)Lonica Vanclay
Shanghai to Hong Kong tour, discover China
From
£2,225

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

The people both in Borneo and on the Indonesian Islands ( Bali and Flores) were happy and smiling all of the time and their natural hospitality was very impressive. I loved the boats trips on the Kinabatagen river and all the amazing bird and animal wildlife and Paul really enjoyed the early morning treks in the Tabin Wildlife reserve and captured photographs again of an amazing and unusual selection of wildlife.

The best part of Sri Lanka for me was the abundance of wildlife. We saw elephants, 2 leopards, crocodiles, beautiful birds and lizards, amongst other things. The safari in Yala and Minneriya were amazing. The people are very friendly and helpful, food good too! There is so mush diversity and lovely scenery. (more)Jane Thackray
Very hard to single out one memorable moment, but we all loved the homestay, visiting the local market, the bakery, the cookery lesson and the temple. The train journey, despite being very crowded and having to stand for an hour was also a wonderful experience. (more)Sarah Boyce
Seeing the 'Temple of the Tooth' in Kandy was also an amazing experience, as was the breathtaking views at the top of 'Worlds End' in Horton Plains. It was great getting to know our driver, who was able to give us lots of insights into the country. (more)Lucy Stockley

Memorable parts? Seeing how the Tibetan people live, their friendliness and warm smiles. The way that welcomed us into their everyday worship in the monasteries. Just the simple things really. Tips? Don't have any expectations on anything. Let it happen. But on a practical level, always have loo roll handy and antibacterial stuff for toilets. Local benefits? Yes. Local hotels, local eating, Tibetan guide and making sure that we shopped in Tibetan stores. We used transport... (more)Sue Byrne

This was the best vacation I have ever taken! I tell everyone to just go. (more)Amanda Popik

US $3,904

Memorable parts? This is a difficult one, as everyday was different and full of interest. Five of us went on this vacation and the best part for me was the morning view from our homestay balcony in Vietnam. Oh, and the cruise on Halong Bay, eating street food in Hanoi & having a delicious lunch prepared for us in a local home in Battambang. Tips? Be prepared to get down with the locals and feel you really get an insight into their lives. Local benefits? I felt quite smug,... (more)Joan Day

The japanese alps, Miyajima, Hiroshima, cooking class, visit to Maiko, cycling - actually. Everything! The trip was fantastic, really well organised - we just had to arrive and enjoy! (more)Amita Patel
The most memorable was the boat ride down the Hozugawa River starting at Kameoka and a JR train journey from Kyoto that is reasonably short. It was a real experience, and made worry free by the superb back-up of the tour operator. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend them. (more)Ian Halstead

Tailor made Rajasthan tour, India
From
£1,750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? History and culture. I enjoyed the amazing hotels we stayed in that were beautiful locations and historical. Tips? Due to distance between locations, ensure there are two nights at every hotel. There is significant time spent driving (in a car) between each location. If flying from Delhi during December / January be aware of fog delaying / cancelling flights. Local benefits? We visited local communities (e.g. Bishnoi, Samode) but not sure how it benefitted...

Peru tailor made vacation, Machu Picchu & Tambopata
From
£2,495

Memorable parts? Taking boat trips on the side tributaries of the Amazon! We loved seeing all the animals. Tips? Allow more time at the Ankatera Maccu Picchu Hotel. There is a lot to do there and we didn't allow any time there (except for seeing the ruins). Local benefits? The Amazon portion of our trip benefited local villages and supported conservation of primates. The time in the Sacred Valley definitely benefited local cooperatives and individuals. Overall rating? 9/10 (more)Nadia Al-Alawi

It was a great vacation, and it is very hard to single out one thing. Our trip to the northeast was one of the best bits (I was honoured to be invited to join the other giggling grannies on the floor of the Tay house - if only I was as limber as they are!). (more)Margery Nzerem
Cuba tour, The Revolutionary Trail
From
£1,925
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Meeting the warm, friendly people in cuba, our hosts at home stays and our wonderful guides. The hiking was great too. Tips? The exchange rate in cuba is not good for Americans so bring extra money as you can't use cards. Local benefits? I hope it benefited them. I know they appreciated the tips. The single use water bottle issue will be a problem quickly as the infrastructure probably can't handle the amount of tourists. Overall rating? It was... (more)Leslie Repp

Memorable parts? We did. Trek over Ton Prival pass, approximately 4,100m high, through the snow, for 9 hours. It was an exhilarating day, with the most amazing views. The view from the top was great, but every corner on the way it just got better and better. That was a definite highlight! Tips? Have as much time as you can to spare. We managed 31 days, which allowed lots of time for visiting cities as well as hiking, which was the primary point of our trip. Don't overlook places... (more)David Harper

Hundreds of fireflies lighting up and dancing in front if us as the sun set. Seeing all the wonderful wildlife on offer in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Tips? If driving use a satnav! Driving in Costa was... (more)Martin Blow
Malawi self drive holiday
From
£2,750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Mvuu camp and the night safaris Tips? Before leaving, i suggest to buy maps and guides because you will not find any tourist indication. They prefer to provide you a guide instead of selling maps and written indication. Local benefits? Yes, I think so for the majority of lodges in which we stayed. Overall rating? 10/10 (more)Giulia Rap
Family vacation to Peru, Machu Picchu & the Amazon
From
£3,619

Memorable parts? Macchu Picchu and Galapagos Tips? 1. Be ready for sleepless nights on the cruise. They sail - at speed through choppy waters - from 1am-5am each night 2. Keep a lot of change for the never-ending list of people to tip - drivers, guides, waiters, bell-boys, cleaners 3. Be ready for massive (yes, massive) queues to get up and down to Macchu Picchu on the bus. Walking down is OK (1 hour) but I wouldn't recommend walking up. Local benefits? Yes - the places we...

From
£1,700

Memorable parts? Every day we did something new and our hosts Saurabh and later, Sunny, always had a surprise in store! Though it's hard to choose one particular part (because the entire experience was amazing), the memories that will always stay with us - without needing to look at the photos - were the day-to-day interactions and chance meetings that we were fortunate to have with the local people. From watching people go about their daily business, to joining in their celebrations, we... (more)Heidi Fuller
