"Many memorable moments but the best has to be the overnight cruise on Milford Sound on the Milford Mariner. It rained on the way to Milford Sound but it had stopped by mid afternoon and by early evening the weather was perfect. We went out on the tender in Harrison Cove and communed with the penguins on the shoreline as the sun went down - then back to the boat for an excellent dinner. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and good fun. The scenery was, of course, spectacular.

"Most inspirational moment - Khiva - beautiful and unexpected although the people came close: friendly, interested proud of their country. Discussing jewellery, children and husbands with ladies selling bread in the market, and not a word of a common language between us, but we communicated just fine!

"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 whole India experience was amazing but nothing prepares you for your first sight of the Taj Mahal and sunrise.
Mr Tony Dellow"
"Many thanks for arranging a brilliant itinerary in Namibia – we had an extraordinary time.
"We have recently returned from our honeymoon in Japan and just wanted to let you know what an absolutely fantastic time we had! Our guide was fantastic, the accommodation in Tokyo and Kyoto was first class and the ryokan on Miyajima Island was an amazing experience.

"This was a fabulous trip from beginning to end with charming and attentive local guides throughout and wonderful accommodation. The dawn balloon ride over Bagan was particularly magical as was the opportunity to get very close to the fishermen on Inle Lake – a photographer's dream!
Mr Peter Bradbrook"
"Visiting ancient buddhist temples, caves and ruins. I was inspired imagining so many monks dedicating themselves the the dharma teachings of the Buddha.
Mrs Anthea Murray"
"As a couple in our sixties, the trek was an experience of a lifetime. We would like to express our sincere thanks to our fantastic guide Prem - his local knowledge and his enthusiasm simply made the holiday perfect. Thank you very much for an extremely enjoyable holiday.
"The whole holiday was wonderful from start to finish. Two moments stand out in particular – first was seeing a mother tiger and her three cubs in the wild while on safari, second was a visit to the Taj Mahal.
Mr Robert McIlwaine"
"Our Private Journey trip to Nepal was absolutely wonderful. As a couple in our sixties, the trek was an experience of a lifetime. Although we did not reach great heights, we saw village life en route and enjoyed simply tremendous scenic views. Thank you very much for an extremely enjoyable holiday."
"The most inspirational moment was when we reached the summit of Sigiriya and viewed the wonderful vista. I would urge anyone who visits Sri Lanka not to miss this. It is truly worthwhile.
Dr David Rainford"
"The most inspirational moment was the first view of Registan Square in Samakand, which was the primary reason for our Uzbek trip and the overwhelming genuine friendliness of the Uzbek people.
Mr John Bourne"
"An enjoyable and memorable tour which will remain the ‘experience of a lifetime’.
