Gorillas!!!!! Interacting with them was the most exceptional experience of my life and the biggest adrenaline rush I have ever had. It is without comparison.

Petra was the obvious highlight but we saw so many other unexpected monuments, ancient cities and fabulous landscape. Every day brought a new highlight. An excellent trip that visited as much of the country as possible squeezed into a week. (more)Alison Drew

Sweden vacations, Wolves, Moose and Beavers
From

Photography vacation in the Spanish Pyrenees
From
€1,395
excluding flights
One of my favourite ever vacations.! I would heartily recommend the place and the area to either walkers or photographers, or to anyone else for that matter. It is a hidden corner of Spain unknown to almost all visitors who flock to the sunbeds on the costas. (more)Colin Barclay

Memorable parts? Simon and Lucy (our hosts) provided our running group with fantastic guides who were able to provide both the local knowledge of the Pyrenees mountains and years of experience of trail running.

Tips? If you like trail running, you'll love this vacation. Hill training... (more)Gillian Russell
St Kilda, an Outer Hebrides Cruise, Scotland
From
£1,650
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Being "on the water" was exhilarating! When the weather was good, it was glorious, and when the weather was stormy, it was exciting. Tips? Miminize luggage. Storage space is modest. Layers are necessary. Don't forget the rain gear. Be flexible. Much of the itinerary is dictated by weather and tides. The vacation providers office staff are very kind to help with arrangements. Try to take time before/after the cruise to visit Oban and Tobermory. Lovely towns. Local... (more)Sue Ellen Christensen

The food was also great and we were treated to genuine local cuisine, all delicious. Tips? Take more money than recommend, especially if you want to take presents home or drink wine with you evening meal. Some people couldn't get money out of the ATMs so tell your bank that you are going to Vietnam. You don't really need US... (more)Cath Lysley
