We had a fabulous guide. The Yate Aida Maria and its crew were terrific. Each island stop was so cool. The food was great. (more)Doreen Martin
The most memorable was to visit two locations I have always wanted to visit : the Machu Picchu and the Galapagos. The sacred valley was also exceptional. (more)Morris Glassman
Arriving at Machu Picchu in the mid-morning mist & seeing the site for the first time in this atmospheric way was one of the most memorable part of our vacation (more)Andy Davies

Most memorable? - Seeing over 100 orcas swimming freely around the boat. What a truly breath taking experience... Amazing. I can't recommend this trip highly enough. Charles and his crew are fantastic. (more)Stuart Etheridge
Most memorable parts of the vacation were... the frequent encounters with both Humpback and Orca each day. (more)Paul Manning
The trip on the boat Goxheim with Charles Wara was absolutely amazing. The boat, food etc was really great. The scenery and wildlife amazing! Way beyond my expectations (more)Jude Runnals

This trip was excellent. I can't speak highly enough of the Aurora staff and the Russian crew. (more)Barbara Shore
Awesome, a life changing experience....I have so many wonderful memories, it is difficult to summarise. The combination of the stunningly vast wilderness of Antarctica, the glacial icebergs and the beautiful King Penguins stand out, however so many other things will live in my memory. (more)Nick Russen
I can scarcely tell you how pleased we were with the trip. The ship was a lovely ship, and our cabin was well-appointed and very spacious. Even with all of our polar gear, we had storage space we didn’t use — unheard-of on a cruise ship. (more)Don Shay
Alaskas Glacier Bay small ship cruise
From
£2,849
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing wildlife: Whales, black and brown bears, mountain goat, eagles, otters from the boat; kayaking and bushwhacking Tips? Take layered clothing to adapt to changing weather. If you are a photographer, take a 400mm or larger lens. Local benefits? To a degree, yes. The cruise hires local staff and our guides educated us on how to minimize environmental impact on hikes. Overall rating? It was fantastic - we were extremely lucky with the weather (sunshine... (more)Konrad von Szczepanski

Having a seal follow us whilst out zodiac went ashore was memorable. Watching an otter fishing was also good. So was the whisky tasting. (more)Jill Brasch
We loved it, quite different from our usual sort of vacation. We were well looked after. (more)Elaine Bowdery

Antarctica cruises
From
US $6,695
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing the interplay between the animals, icebergs, glaciers, sea and sky. Tips? First: TAKE THE TRIP TO ANTARCTICA. It is unforgettable. If Miami is not on a direct route to Buenos Aires, fly there directly.Be sure to bring the right clothing. Being out on the water or a hill is COLD with the wrong clothes. Spend as much time on the bridge of the ship as possible. Go to all of the lectures. Meet new people Local benefits? No people to benefit in Antarctica. However,... (more)Stephen Kohn

In a nutshell, the trip could not have been better. It was fantastic. 5 star, 10 out of 10, couldn't have been better. I'm not sure when I'll be able to make another "exotic" trip, Responsible Travel will for sure be top of my list when I do. Thanks all of you. (more)Roger Bilder

So many highlights - Kayaking among glaciers and around icebergs with humpback whales, penguins and seals. (more)Arlene Weingart
The entire expedition and crew were amazing, but I'd have to say our wedding was the most memorable, although the polar plunge comes in a close second place, lol! (more)Danny Whiting
Best bits: The close sighting of a pod of Orca attacking a Humpbacked Whale and penguins; The ideal size of the ship and friendliness of the other passengers and crew. (more)Roger Labbatt
Hebrides cruise, The Sounds of Mull, Luing, Shuna and Jura
From

The entire 6 days brilliant. Every aspect whether scenery, wild life, sailing or food was special (more)James Florance
The most memorable were the great views of the islands and the nice walks/ exploration on 'dry land'. The vacation was very enjoyable. (more)Anna Candy
The opportunity to see aspects of the beautiful inner islands from the lochs was quite special. Fabulous sunsets and misty mornings, seals and dolphins, hikes and a little fun fishing were all memorable. (more)Janis Tratnik
Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
From
£2,799
excluding flights
Evacuation from an island when polar bears were sighted approaching was the most memorable part of the vacation. (more)Yiu Wing Chung
The most memorable parts of the trip were...The polar bears that we saw close up from the zodiac, the large group of walruses with some playing in the water, the bird cliff at Alkefjellet and the polar bear that came looking for tea, the glacier calving at Monacobreen with the pod of around 12 Belugas that turned up to watch, being able to swim in the Arctic, and, my personal favourite, sailing through the pack ice to 82 degrees north and being surrounded by ice. (more)Andy Sykes
Cruising is not my scene but this one was certainly very interesting and informative. The organization, comfort and activity were excellent and I could certainly find no fault with anything. (more)Marcus Durand
New Zealands Subantarctic Islands cruise, including Macquarie
From
US $7,000
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The wildlife. Tips? Don't go on this ship: it is old and uncomfortable. Booking a mini-suite was expensive and turned out to be most inconvenient. It was certainly good having ones own toilet and shower, however the bed arrangement was terrible. The bed was enclosed in a box with only a small corner free for getting in or getting out of bed. If one had to get up in the night one had to wake one's partner to get out of bed and back in again, as one had to climb... (more)Carole-Anne Fooks
Kamchatka wildlife and bird watching cruise, Russia
From
US $7,380
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

From
US $6,099

It was all fantastic. The first visit to a penguin colony was amazing, but the best was probably our visit to Adie Cove. No cruise had been there before and it was named after the lady who ran our cruise. 11 out of 10.... (more)Lawrence Bradley
The whole trip from the time we boarded the ship to disembarkation. The most memorable thing was not getting sea sick the ship is that stable...The best ever. (more)David Lohan
This was the most incredible vacation - the staff on our ship were so efficient and hospitable, the landings were well managed and offered a diverse range of activities (hiking, sliding down the slopes on our stomachs, seals/penguins/birds - and the occasional whale), fascinating lectures, and a wonderful small ship environment. (more)Barbara Wilson

Maldives vacation, wildlife cruise
From
US $3,099
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Snorkelling with a group of feeding manta rays for about 40 minutes. Unforgettable. Tips? Take a few days on either side - go to one of the local islands. Actually - take the days beforehand, as it's hard to imagine anything living up to the boat trip (bearing in mind that we'd never been on a snorkelling trip or anything like this, so we can't compare). Local benefits? All of the above to some extent. Guide was very aware of environmental impact, we also... (more)David O
Amazon river cruise, small group
From
US $3,779
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The early morning, 6:00AM, and night wildlife excursions. We went out in small boats up small rivers to look for birds, monkeys, sloths, reptiles. Even at times when there was no wildlife, the sounds of the jungle were captivating. Tips? Manage your expectations. The trip is for good travelers, not tourists. The Motor Yacht Tucano is amazing, but if you expect the luxuries of a modern cruise ship you will be disappointed. You will have the opportunity to make four... (more)Jim Schwarz
Galapagos cruise vacation
From
US $4,103
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing such amazing animals (including sharks whilst snorkelling) so close but in the wild still. Tips? Choose a boat that fits your activity levels - I am very active but I appreciate not everyone is! Also beware if you do get seasick - a smaller boat will be a challenge Local benefits? My vacation contributed to the local economy and didn't negatively impact the environment Overall rating? Fabulous fun - the crew, guide and group were also top quality (more)Fiona Muntz
Arctic wildlife vacation, Polar bear explorer
From
£7,195
excluding flights
Memorable parts? 22 Polar bears! And sadly this was a year when the sea ice melted early so I was afraid we wouldn't see any. Also foxes, walruses and reindeer, all seemingly unconcerned with humans so we were quite close. Spectacular scenery - glaciers, icebergs, tundra - lovely ship with a great crew and food better than I expected. Also, most importantly, the guides couldn't have been better. Tips? Be prepared for ever changing weather conditions. Local benefits? Svalbard... (more)Lisa Bromwell

We spent our pre-embarkation night in a local hostel in Longyearbyen. The expedition took great care to minimise our impact, including recycling,... (more)Val ODwyer
