"As on any tour, the guides are vital to the smooth running and harmony of the tour. I don’t believe these holidays have highlights, they are all highlights from start to finish. Thanks for a great holiday.
"Although the rock churches of Lalibela were particularly impressive, it was the overall balance of sights that impressed us: the stelae of Axum and the castles of Gondar plus the magnificence of the Simien Mountains and Lake Tana.

"Difficult to choose between the tracking and finding of desert elephants in Damaraland, and the safari drive in Erindi, where we saw a host of different animals and witnessed a kill (two cheetahs on a springbok). Both expeditions were enhanced by the jeep drivers who showed enthusiasm, persistence and knowledge.

"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."
"The tour was brilliant. The Villa Verdi is a find. Springbok Atlas are efficient and well organised. The Accommodation was all good – some of it unique.
"Our holiday was wonderful! The whole safari flowed smoothly from one exciting adventure to another. It was brilliant! We would like to thank Cox & Kings for delivering the perfect experience.We really feel we had excellent value for money. I will always recommend Cox & Kings, we are now your biggest fans.
"Petra by candlelight was stunning.
Mr. John Scott"
"Seeing animals unique to Madagascar in their natural environment and able to photograph them as they fed and interacted with each other [was inspirational]. The tour guide, Tokey, had an amazing knowledge of all of the wildlife, plants - latin names included - and the history of the country and its people and customs.
Mr Ian Culley"
"All my life I was dreaming of seeing Petra and I finally managed to get there. Hassan, our guide had in depth knowledge and although I would have loved to spend a lot more time there he managed to show us a great deal. As a taster it was great and I will return on my own and probably stay for a week!! But as a whole every place we visited was a highlight.
Ms Suzanne Mader"
"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!
Mrs Jane Laver"
"Easter Island was amazing, just as I expected. The first sight of the crater at Orongo was breathtaking
