"The unplanned and unexpected encounter with a traditional Burmese procession taking young boys to the monastery to become monks and girls to have their ears pierced. Half a mile long, it consisted of ridden horses, oxcarts, ponies & traps, elephants and motor vehicles, all festooned with flowers and gay decorations and accompanied by loud music. It was not in a tourist location and was by the locals, for the locals. Absolutely glorious.

"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.

"This tour vividly demonstrated the benefits of using a reputable travel agent, without whom we would probably still be stranded amongst the riots!

"The tented game reserve at Nkomwasi was sensational. The rangers were excellent in every way accommodation was well above average and the meals up to a very high standard. The second moment was the meal in the vineyard with the four course meal accompanied by wine with every course. The view was absolutely magnificent.

"A belated thank you so much for the arrangements you made for our recent trip to South Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday.
"Some excellent memories from each of the areas in Chile we visited – Santiago, the Atacama Desert, the Lake District, Torres del Paine National Park, Puerto Williams and Easter Island. The two highlights were Torres del Paine and Puerto Williams – in the former you felt as if you really were at the bottom of the world, almost like the outback in Australia. The daily activities in Puerto Williams were excellent.
Mr Brendan Fitzgerald"
"Your guide Turgay is excellent both in his knowledge and helpfulness and very pleasant and fun. The holiday was enjoyable and well worth while.

"The city of Trinidad contained much of what was great about Cuba in a nutshell. It was lively, friendly, very photogenic with a history that went back over 500 years.

"We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Jordan. The content allowed us an unhurried glimpse into the past. Our guide, Sofian, was knowledgeable, patient and great company, an asset to your organisation. A memorable journey. Thank you.
