"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.
"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.

"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"
"The riverboat trips were marvellous, both in Tortuguero and Los Chiles. Huge amount of wildlife and excellent local guides and drivers.
Mr Roger Piggin"
"Many inspirational moments in spotting wildlife of amazing diversity in the nature reserves and alongside the road, thanks to our hawk-eyed guide. I would also mention the wonderful swim on the beach at Manuel Antonio on the last full day of the tour. You'd have to go a long way to find a better sea-swim.

"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"
"We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and all travel connections worked perfectly.
"We really enjoyed Trogon Lodge at San Gerado de Dota. Lovely location, friendly staff and excellent local guides.
Mr Colin Dickinson"
"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"
"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!
Mr David Graham"
"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.
Mrs Judith Purssell"
"Too many to mention. Loved the whole tour. Great informative guide, well planned, great sights and music.
Ms Angela Mindel"
"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"
"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.
