"The ordinary people of India were an inspiration in themselves with their poise, dignity and friendliness in difficult living conditions.

"I have longed to visit Gwalior fort and Bundi town since I saw pictures of both in an Insight guide to India over 20 years ago. Gwalior fort is spectacular - rising above the clean and organised town of Gwalior- it is breathtakingly majestic yet delicately beautiful with its stunning yellow, blue and iridescent turquoise tile work stretching into the distance along the perimeter wall. The interior was a surprise - incredibly well preserved in parts with exquisite carvings and evidence of sophisticated cooling and sound systems. Exceeded expectations! To finally see the romantically beautiful town of Bundi was a dream come true - a secret treasure trove of golden walls housing stunning artwork amidst crumbling ruins, Sadly neglected and in desperate need of Unesco intervention to save one of the most exquisite palace complexes in Rajasthan.

"Every day I thought 'it couldn't get better than this' - but it did.

"Seeing the treasures of Tutankhamen in the Egyptian Museum. The jewellery was exquisite in both detail and artistry and in wonderful condition for its age. Also loved the view from the ship as we journeyed along the Nile. Fascinating view of the way of life. Tombs in the Valley of the Kings also a wonderful experience."
"Our first evening in Khiva was magical. We walked by ourselves in the almost deserted streets of the old city and felt transported in another world, with the beautiful mosques and madrassas rising in the dying light. There were many amazing moments during the group visits but I would pick the climb to the Zoroastrian tower of silence near Nukus, looking at the great Oxus river and thinking of the flow and ebb of the ancient civilisations and cultures that were built and destroyed over the centuries in this now forgotten heart of Central Asia.

"We enjoyed it all. Kyrenia was a beautiful town but we were very impressed with the walking tours of Farmagusta and Nicosia.

"Seeing Machu Picchu was still a wow moment even after visiting the other Inca sites.
Mr Mark Paterson"
"The acommodation and game drive arrangements were first class and the ranger went out of his way to get us in the best positions to view the wildlife and his knowledge was amazing. At Isandwhana and Rorkes Drift the resident historian brought the battles to life to the extent that you almost felt you were there.
Mr Harvey Harrison"
"Petra by candlelight was stunning.
Mr. John Scott"
"The highlights were seeing the rainforest for the first time, the knowledge of our local guides was also amazing. Costa Rica has been the holiday of a lifetime for me…I cannot fault the service.
"I would like to tell you that it was a wonderful trip. Thank you for organising it so well.
"Many inspirational moments in spotting wildlife of amazing diversity in the nature reserves and alongside the road, thanks to our hawk-eyed guide. I would also mention the wonderful swim on the beach at Manuel Antonio on the last full day of the tour. You'd have to go a long way to find a better sea-swim.

"We had a fabulous time in Iran. Our carefully worked itinerary was nicely spaced and we were delighted with our female guide.
"We found the tour to be fascinating and we enjoyed every aspect of it. It was greatly enhanced by an excellent tour guide.
