Tour Reviews

  • The itinerary was excellent, allowing us to go places and see things we could not have managed on our own in the time available. At the same time there was some free time to rest or go shopping.

    Russia & the Baltics
  • The itinerary was very comprehensive. The extra things we managed to fit in such as white water rafting and archery were the cherry on the top. There was enough culture fitted in and we were lucky enough to see a dance practice in the Dzong in Punakha.

    Bhutan: East & West
  • We saw and experienced so much and not only the major highlights. All the extras made the tour for me.

    Central Asia
  • Great – really liked that it was a small group, that we travelled almost always in same vehicle with same driver. The game parks etc were all different and contrasting, saw wonderful selection of animals and scenery – all we hoped for and more. Zanzibar was totally different, a great experience, definitely worthwhile

    African Safari
  • A good mix of travel and walking without hopping from one tourist site to the next which allowed us to explore and experience the local character, eg the visits to the ceramic workshops, the delta cruise, the Uros Island/Lake Titicaca experiences, the diversity of La Paz to name a few.

    South America
  • For me personally, excellent. Kept us on our toes, always something different to see round every corner, giving us a great range of experiences. Just enough down time for a quick nap and laundry duty

    Way of St James
  • A very full itinerary which had been meticulously planned. Every day was varied and interesting. Flexibility was appreciated on days when the pace got a bit too much.

    Walking in Japan
  • Wow, such a great tour – I loved being so close to the birds and animals. Highly recommend.
