    Memorable parts? So many highlights! Our youngest loved the rock climbing, which was expertly supervised and our eldest loved the snorkelling and lazy boat day best. As for us, it's hard to choose, the Eco Day was much more than we anticipated and we really felt privileged to share their Gozo culture. We love sea kayaking and the shores of Gozo provided some excellent fun. The superb staff at the dive centre gave us an excellent introduction to diving and an unforgettable day. It's the...

    Being in an amazing part of the world, with a group of like-minded people, hiking through woods, wild water swimming, swimming in a waterfall, visiting an island monastery. My son and daughter both loved the off-road trip with the land rover, jumping from a village bridge into a river, seeing Golden Orioles and Hoopooes was another highlight. (more)Kyra De Coninck

    Our children would say Kaia, our donkey who they bonded with was the most memorable. For me, the emptiness and the views. Possibly my favourite spot of all was the Chappelle St-Barnabe near Val Pelens where we whiled away a couple of hours in glorious sunshine with spectacular views. (more)Rob Booth
    Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
    The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of vacation.

    I hesitate to write this review for selfish reasons. Why? Because this vacation is so wonderful I'd rather keep it a secret! Situated on the southern slopes of Mt Batakaru in remotest Bali, this place is a pocket of paradise, far removed from the ravages of the 21st century. Having spent a week there I did not want to leave. (more)Daphne Donkin

    My vacation was the best experience of my life, so much so I wasn't ready to leave and got very upset when the time came to leave. I fell in love my elephant Campion and Boonma and his family welcomed me with open arms. Such good hearted people. The experience with them added to my amazing experience and I would recommend anyone try this experience.

    The first two times I got into the water to see the Dolphins.

It was a very special experience I will not forget. (more)Geertje Hermans
    Swimming with wild dolphins was absolutely incredible. I loved seeing them close up under the water. It was also wonderful seeing them playing around the boat. A really special experience. (more)Juliet Tomlinson
