"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.
"We really enjoyed Trogon Lodge at San Gerado de Dota. Lovely location, friendly staff and excellent local guides.

"I can't say that there was one specific moment - there were many. The country and the people were wonderful, despite their obvious poverty. Our tour guide Maria was first class, and went out of her way to make sure that everything went smoothly.

"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.
Mr William Kerr"
"There were numerous, but certainly seeing Aztec and Mayan cities in real life, and quietly soaking up their atmosphere, constituted highlights of the tour.
Mr David Kennaby"
"Difficult to choose! Seeing the beautiful colonial buildings, some beautifully retsored and others, often still inhabited, crumbling around us. Also, visiting the Monumento Ernesto Che Guervara and hearing the passion in our guide's voice as she explained about the battle of Santa Clara. My husband would say the old cars!
Mrs Jane Jowitt"
"Havana was definitely the highlight, an architectural and historic gem. In addition, it was a hassle free city, very clean and everything easily accessible. Historic buildings are beautifully and subtly illuminated at night. The people for the most part are friendly, helpful and courteous.
Mr and Mrs Taylor"
"We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Havana and Trinidad. Trinidad in particular was small and colourful with lots of music and good restaurants. We had a dance at our morning coffee/cocktail stop which was fun and enjoyable. The thing we will remember most about our trip to Cuba was the music everywhere at all times and of course the cocktails!

"Apart from the beauty of Costa Rica as a whole, I really enjoyed the Panama Canal trip and then visiting the Miraflores Locks the following day. Having learned about it as a child, it was just great to experience it 'for real'. It was fascinating to see everything working in virtually the same way as it has done for the past 100 years! I found the the museum/information centre excellent.

"We thought it important to let you know how much we enjoyed it and how well we thought it was planned…Thank you for organising it.
"We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and all travel connections worked perfectly.
"We were so impressed by the conservation and environmental policies of Costa Rica. An example to the world! The flora and fauna were the reason we chose Costa Rica and we were not disappointed.
Mr John Kettle"
"Among many, including crossing the walkways at Monteverde in driving rain and a strong wind, the real highspot was the visit to La Selva. We felt privileged visitors, had a superb guide and saw an amazing range of animals and birds within a remarkably short time. If only we had had longer there.
Mr Paul Langridge"
"Guides and staff excellent, friendly and went out of their way to be helpful.
