The whole vacation was great, the right amount of relaxation and activities. There are a couple of days off for you to organise your own activity, exploration or if the weathers great, there is a pool at the villa. Overall a great vacation and a beautiful country and people. (more)Jennifer Callow
It was all fantastic - the wine tasting was just superb, kayaking most enjoyable and the fisherman's lunch delicious. Being given Rakija to taste from a couple's "Stil" at the roadside on the way to Tania's amazing lunch was extremely memorable! (more)Helen Whittaker
Every day provided something special. The scenery everywhere we visited and travelled through is stunning. Discovering and then jumping into beautiful, hidden pools and rivers, whilst on wonderful day hikes, were a joy. (more)Beverly Hipkin

Climbing the 'Singing Sand Dunes' (Khongoryn Els) at sunset was amazing! It was a big effort to make it to the top, but we were rewarded with once-in-a lifetime views over the vast sand dunes and Gobi Desert while mother nature turned on a spectacular pink and purple hue. (more)Lynette Smith

We enjoyed it all but going to to the Merry Cemetry at Sapanta was interesting also Viscri where Prince Charles has bought a home. He has helped the village and it was great going to the woods on a horse drawn cart to the brick maker and learning about his craft. (more)Sue Beckingham

Santo Antao hiking vacations, Cape Verde Islands
From
US $1,029
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The hiking in Santo Antao is outstanding. The scenery is spectacular and the paths are generally pretty good with the locals always ready to lend a hand when you get lost. The local transfers of bags and hikers was generally very reliable (couple of minor issues but nothing more than we expected). The local "agent on the ground" was very good and Deborah did more than could be expected to help us to get sorted out after our delayed start. The accommodation was of a reasonable...

Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan small group tour
From
£2,599
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The part of the trip in Svaneti. Tips? Its a good trips and they should book it Local benefits? It benefitted local people in The Svaneti region because it creates work. Overall rating? I will give it 4 stars because the guide in Azerbaijan didn't speak English very well. He didn't understand our questions and could answer something completly wrong which proved that he hadn't understood the question. (more)Lars Leibnitz

I would like to think it did via the local accommodation... (more)Helen Wildash

From

Memorable parts?

Bulgaria self guided hiking vacation
From
US $804
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing all the beautiful wildflowers. May was a wonderful time of year to be there. Also the very warm welcome we received from local people in the smaller villages. Tips? You need to be aware that the trekking company in Bulgaria promotes the opportunity for solo travelers to save costs by traveling with a couple who've already booked. As you are mainly staying in very small places if someone else books the same dates you are likely to end up spending every evening... (more)Ruth Bradshaw
