A memorable experience....The wildlife in general (eagles, otters and more!), but in particular the boat trip to Staffa and the Treshnish Isles. Being able to get so close to puffins, razorbills and shags on Lunga was an incredible experience. (more)Michael Hall

Scotland island hopping vacation, car free
From
£990

Memorable parts? Traveling without a car made us travel with less, slow down, and engage more with people around us. So we had a wonderful time meeting people from Scotland and all over, which was great. Tips? Recognize that you'll spend a bit more time getting between places than you otherwise might, so let go of the rush to "get there". And pack light. Local benefits? We were in small hotels except for the extra nights we added in cities, and staying in small towns. So... (more)Mark Gurvis

Perfect!....The best thing about the vacation was having no internet connection & very little mobile coverage. It made it a total break away & allowed us to appreciate everything about the location of cottage & the amazing surrounding area. It was a complete break away which is what a vacation should be.

Shakespeares Way & Thames Path walking vacation
From
£595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? During the course of the week one cannot fail to be impressed by the sights seen on the Thames Path, sadly the planned programme didn't allow time to visit these places. Tips? To make sure that the daily walks are within their capabilities, even though the paths are on the level. The Thames path is well maintained but it was noticeable as you approached London, through London and to the east that a number of the signs had been vandalised/pointing in the wrong direction....
