"I very much enjoyed the talks by William Taylor and our guide Hamdi, who were both very knowledgeable. Istanbul is a buzzy place with great scenery, history and interesting people & visitors. To see the city and its surroundings placed in perspective was very insightful. I learned a lot, from Rev'd Taylor and Hamdi and also the other party members. I am looking forward to going back to Istanbul in the future.

"The tour was extremely well-planned. This was not my first visit to Israel but, this time, I visited places I hadn't seen before. The guide, Boaz, was very good. His explanations were clear and informative, and he ensured we saw what we should and that everything went smoothly. Not all guides put over their points as well, and should I consider a return visit, having him as a guide would be most encouraging. Much of the tour was inspirational but my highlights were Masada and the Dead Sea, and the Golan heights.

"Really hard to pick just one. Predictably, the cathedral in Córdoba, the Alcazar in Seville and the astonishing Alhambra Palace complex in Granada, in terms of visits. The fragrance of orange blossom on the streets was sublime. The kindness and warmth of people we met.

"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.

"The historical knowledge that Professor Robin Cormac, our UK guide, shared with us brought Ravenna alive.
Mrs Josephine Rednall"
"On Wadi Rum I felt that I was either on the moon or on a filmset. The views and the feeling of space and wilderness were wonderful.
Mrs Anita Bird"
"Hard to choose between walking by the waterfalls at Iguazu and sitting listening to the jungle sounds in the Amazon rain forest.
Mrs Ruth Wilkinson"
"The guide was the most impressive of all. She always responded to our individual needs and made the journey and tour very comfortable and enjoyable. She was a guide, a singer, a dancer, and above all a friend.

"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"
"The Botanical gardens in Kandy and the Yala National Park were both outstanding.
Mrs Linda Green"
"The scenery was amazing throughout the tour, but the two main sights for us were St. Georges cruciform rock church and the Blue Nile falls. Both truly amazing.
Mr David Eyres"
"We feel very privileged to have gone on such a special journey and we cannot thank you enough for the care and attention you took in selecting our itinerary.
"We found the tour to be fascinating and we enjoyed every aspect of it. It was greatly enhanced by an excellent tour guide.
Mrs Jacqueline Mayne"
"The arrival in St Petersburg was more beautiful than we expected and was so different to Moscow.
