"The first sight of the Taj Mahal was a really magical experience.
Mrs Sally-Ann Hart"
"We had a marvellous time! Our driver Rarjed was brilliant at finding the animals and positioning the car just so. Seeing our first lion on the first day was so exciting. The view of the Masai Mara from Serena Mara lodge was an awe inspiring experience. Watching two male giraffes fighting was an unforgettable sight. As you can see it is impossible to pick the most inspirational moment, the whole trip was a dream come true."
"There were almost too many highlights to single out just one. However, I would have to include the first sight of the Taj Mahal in any shortlist. There were so many other wondrous buildings. We also greatly enjoyed the trip to the local village in Jaipur as it gave us a better insight as to how the rural community live.

"Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your work and help with our trip to South America, it was the most incredible and inspiring experience for both my Mum and myself.
"Diana Driscoll educated us last year on Mughal Uzbekistan. Because of her we booked onto this Mughal India tour to continue our education. She is inspirational and enthuses us with her love of the subject. Everything about the tour was inspirational. If we have to choose just one thing.....it would be The residency at Lucknow. Also, the India based Tour Manager Madhav Das Rathmore was quite superb and liaised well with Diana, especially since this was the first time the tour had run and the first time they had worked together.

"The visit to the Moscow Kremlin and Armoury was inspirational. The walk around the grounds, the churches, bell tower, gardens, tomb of the unknown soldier followed by a visit to the Armoury was amazing.

The local guides were knowledgeable and friendly and our local tour manager looked after us very well. It was all a magnificent experience.

"The trip to Machu Picchu was incredible. The time we had there gave us the opportunity to really get a feel for the place and take all the photos we wanted to.

"[The most inspirational moment was] when we finally arrived at the childhood home of my mother at Katerri Falls, south of Ooty in the beautiful Nilgri Hills tea plantation country. We now understand why she missed Southern India so much when she returned to England in the 1930s.
Mrs Charmian Bourne"
"In the Udawalawe National Park the wild elephants, several females with two babies, came right up to the jeep and continued to feed beside us without moving away. It was lovely seeing the elephants at the orphanage too, but a sight I shall not forget was watching a young one standing at the bottom of the slipway, crossing his front legs back and forth in time to the beat of the music coming from a restaurant nearby. He was dancing for fun!
Ms Phyllis Babb"
"Your guide Turgay is excellent both in his knowledge and helpfulness and very pleasant and fun. The holiday was enjoyable and well worth while.
"[What was inspirational was ] the sheer range of experiences from the vibrant city of Cape Town to the vistas of the wineries around Franschhoek and Stellendosch and the drive through the mountains to Sanbona in the Little Karroo. Seeing white rhino and elephants at sunset and then the amazing fynbos at Grootbos near Walker Bay. Every day brought something new and fresh.
Mrs Lindsey Riley"
"Walking down the Siq and seeing the Treasury opening in front of us. Then climbing all 900 steps to the Monastery.
Miss Margaret Sturmey"
"If we had to pick one [inspirational] moment it would be walking out of the Siq at Petra to see the Treasury. But to be honest there were so many amazing places it is difficult to pick one out.
Mr Christopher Clark"
