From
£3,528

Most memorable was Torres del Paine national park and climbing to the base of the granite peaks - something I'd dreamed about doing for years.

Oman highlights tour
From
£2,795
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Meeting with our Omani guides and getting so much information from them. Staying in the most amazing hotel- alila hotel, jebel akhdar with stunning architecture. Scenery, views and walking were amazing. Tips? Good cover for women at the mosques but otherwise fairly relaxed for westerners. Local benefits? Some local people, not sure who owned hotels. Mass tourism does not reduce environmental impact, nor does it support conservation however hard we try. The... (more)Anne Tunwell

Kamchatka vacations, small group tour
From
£1,799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many great moments. Our group seemed to gel very well, and the Russian team were terrific (although admittedly we had to get the first guide removed after day 3). I loved the rafting section, close to the bears and so peaceful. Shame about the rain. The lunar base camp and Dead Forest were extraordinary. Weather precluded a trip to the Valley of the Geysers, instead we helicoptered to Kuril Lake: what a day! The pilot descended into a volcano crater on the return... (more)Alastair Giddings

Langtang Valley trekking vacation, Nepal
From
£1,595
excluding flights
The guides know the families who run the Tea Houses where we stayed ,and on many occasions we were greeted as old friends ! Also by being in a small group the impact on the environment and in the villages we stayed was not as significant as if we'd been in a larger group. (more)Jane Elliott
The western and Nepali guides and porters were great - always smiling and ready to make sure everyone was happy. An excellent trip in all aspects. (more)patricia barber

The trip to the wilderness cabin was great fun. Really enjoyable to be able to spend the night out there.

He went the extra mile to adjust things to suit the mix of people on the tour and local conditions. (more)Christopher Lynch

Adventure vacation in Rajasthan, India
From
US $2,390
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I will never forget bicycling down some of the quite back country lanes of Rajasthan - children running across field of yellow mustard flowers to greet you as you bicycle past - pausing in a small village to meet the people weaving a beautiful rug on the huge loom - spotting a beautiful Kingfisher perched in a tree as you pause to admire. Tips? Enquire as to what you might bring along to benefit a local school or such that you might be visiting along the way! Local... (more)Mike Perry

Sudan vacation
From
£2,299
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The visit to Meroe. Mind blowing! The pyramids in the daytime WOW, but even better at sundown. A very big shame that there were no G&T`s to go with the atmospheric feeling of history. When you stay in tent city, it`s fantastic with the night sky and no light pollution. Eating and sleeping, with the stars, all around you, then you have arrived in paradise.If you are lucky to go on this trip and have Kahlid as your guide, then you are in for a treat.If you think the desert...

Walking in the Atlas in general was terrific with the beautiful scenery. Sleeping outside under the stars was also amazing... Second to none! (more)Jennifer Baker Dallison
Kamchatka wildlife and bird watching cruise, Russia
From
US $8,000
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the ribbon seals, the northern right whale and the spoonbill sandpiper. Tips? Be prepared for lots of walking on the tundra. Also understand that the ship does not have stabilizers so even a mild swell rocks the ship. Bring a good layering system as temperatures and ice conditions can vary greatly. Local benefits? Supported conservation and the spoonbill sandpiper project. I suppose that we provided some income for the people in the towns in which... (more)Marian Herz
Highlights of Argentina tour
From
£1,330
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? All of it. Tips? Hotel information was not as good as it could have been. Many of the hotels did not do food and that could have created a problem over xmas & new year. Also some did not take credit cards. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Mike Billington

From
US $1,940
excluding flights
Mclaren Glacier/Columbus Glacier was the best highlight. (more)Julian Mclean
We were instantly drawn to the Alaska Denali Expedition because it encompassed everything we wanted from our time in Alaska – and it didn't disappoint! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and it has given us some incredible memories we'll treasure forever. We would 100% recommend this trip. (more)Mark Annal
The best part for me was that we saw that many animals. Animals everywhere on the road, campground and on the day trips. It was really good that Dave always took good pictures which we got at the end. And I also really liked the campfires in the evening where we were talking with each other and ate a lot marshmallows :) (more)Laetitia Spescha

From
£1,365
including UK flights
The landscape and sea life was memorable. (more)Lynda Whitcombe
Wow this is really hard to answer because honestly (and I do not tend to exagerate) this was the most amazing vacation we ever had. We were blown away every single day by the beauty of Iceland, the raw nature, constant changing scenery and wildlife. (more)Ariella Schaerer
The outstanding scenery and unique landscapes which greet you at every turn. Whale watching was possibly the most exciting especially as it was on the last but one day of their season. The Humpbacks, Minkes and white nosed dolphins put on quite an active display for us. (more)Wendy Meade
Poland bison safari in the Primeval Forest
From
PLZ3,310
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the wild bison Tips? Be willing to be sociable and make the most of the opportunities to see the wildlife, even if it means getting up very early. Be respectful of the rules and the rest of the group and follow the clothing rules (as some of our group did not do!) Local benefits? Yes. It was nice to have a small group and get to know the local guides who were personable and extremely knowledgeable. Overall rating? Great, although I would... (more)Sarah Bascombe
Flores & Komodo vacation, Indonesia
From
US $2,895
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing Komodo dragons, manta rays and turtles in the wild, visiting local villages in Flores, particularly Wae Rebo which is only accessible after a 10k hike. Tips? 1. Going out of season isn't a bad idea. We went in late October/early November and it was great as there were less tourists around. Although it's the start of rainy season, it didn't impede our trip at all. I imagine some places (such as Komodo/Rinca islands) are crazy in peak season. 2. Check the best... (more)Mariam Conway
Montenegro holiday, mountains, rivers & canyons of the north
From
€609
excluding flights
Memorable parts? White water rafting on the clear Tara River, stopping off for a beer at a riverside bar on the Bosnian side. The local honey served everywhere in the north and the fresh pomegranate juice in the south. Friendly hosts who always lay on far too much food! Staying in a quite hamlet near Pluzine, getting a taste of rural life, watching the cows being milked in the garden amongst the fruit trees and bee hives. The dramatic Prokletije National Park, where few tourists go, but... (more)Joanna Simmons
