"I am writing to say how much we enjoyed our trip to India...You were right in saying that we had a busy itinerary but we really enjoyed the whole experience. We appreciated your efforts in planning our journey and were particularly pleased with the choice of rooms and hotels you had arranged for us to stay in.
"Petra was by far the most special place I have ever been to.

"Arriving at the desert camp at Manvar, going on the camel ride at sunset and staying in the camp overnight. Also visiting the Bishnoi tribe and realising that they have such an admirable philosophy.
Mrs Susan Rawson"
"Visiting the cemeteries for the Day of the Dead celebrations [was inspirational]. We also enjoyed the visits to the Mayan tombs which were brought to life by the excellent guides.
Mr Brian Walters"
"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.

"The visit to Gallipolli was very moving and thought provoking. The cemetery at Anzac cove and the inscription of Ataturk's words will live in our memories for a long time.
Mr Gordon Warwick"
"The birdwatching at Ambua and Karawari was world class. They have Joseph and Stephen at Ambua, and Chris at Karawari, who are THE experts in PNG, and are mentioned in the new bird book.
Mr Anthony Ray"
"I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a big thank you for organising the most spectacular holiday for us. We had such a fantastic holiday on Cocoa Island and loved every minute of it.

"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.
Mr Robert Mundell"
"The whole Explora experience really is something special and I think pretty good value for money. I was the only person doing the Travesia from El Chalten to Torres del Paine - it was fantastic!
Mr. Peter Kudirka"
"I found Khiva fascinating. The hotel was very good and within a few minutes walk of the 'old town', which we first saw it lit by moonlight when we arrived and it was a stunning sight.
Mrs Judith King"
"We have recommended you to all our friends and family. We will definitely travel with you again.
Mr and Mrs W"
"Our trip to Guatemala was a great success. Thanks for organising such a great itinerary. There was plenty of contrasts, changes of pace etc to ensure there was always something of interest without being rushed around from sight to sight.
"The arrival in St Petersburg was more beautiful than we expected and was so different to Moscow.
Mr Stanley Wood"
