"[What was inspirational was ] the sheer range of experiences from the vibrant city of Cape Town to the vistas of the wineries around Franschhoek and Stellendosch and the drive through the mountains to Sanbona in the Little Karroo. Seeing white rhino and elephants at sunset and then the amazing fynbos at Grootbos near Walker Bay. Every day brought something new and fresh.

"I really can't really pick out one moment, all of it was wonderful. Our guide, Tahir, was marvellous. Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful.
Mrs Christine Gregory"
"The tour guide Ra'ed was exceptional. He described all aspects of the sites and many interesting facts about his country, it's history, geography, religions and more. We couldn't have asked for a better guide.
Mrs Patricia Stonier"
"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"
"The Botanical gardens in Kandy and the Yala National Park were both outstanding.
Mrs Linda Green"
"We have had many holidays in different parts of the world, but this certainly ranks among the best. Thank you once again for your help and patience in organising it.

"Bukhara: walking into the Kalyon mosque and seeing the huge tiled facades, the minaret and turquoise domes all set in the immense courtyard, in which we heard that Genghis Khan murdered the entire young male population of the city in the 13th century. Historic, tragic and beautiful all at once.
Miss Miranda Dawkins"
"Going to Varanasi which is a unique experience - an amazing combination of devout faith coupled with the madness that is India.
Mrs Anneke Berrill"
"The welcome and friendliness of the Chilean people coupled with their civilised attitude that is modelled on the UK, was inspirational. The scenery from the Atacama to Patagonia is just overwhelming.
Mr Derek Lester"
"The whole holiday was a fantastic experience, made especially so firstly by the fantastic guide, and secondly by the wonderful company of your other guests.
Mr David Carter"
"Our contact Ewen Moore was readily available on the phone and dealt with all enquiries in a pleasant and efficient manner.
"The content of the tour was excellent as were the tour leader and local guide. We very much enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot about the artists and times in which they worked. It was wonderful to visit an Italian stately home and have a private tour by the owner who was very kind and welcoming.
Dr John Saunders"
"The unplanned and unexpected encounter with a traditional Burmese procession taking young boys to the monastery to become monks and girls to have their ears pierced. Half a mile long, it consisted of ridden horses, oxcarts, ponies & traps, elephants and motor vehicles, all festooned with flowers and gay decorations and accompanied by loud music. It was not in a tourist location and was by the locals, for the locals. Absolutely glorious.
Mr Jeremy Waters"
"The tour leader/speaker, Colin Bailey, provided many an inspirational moment. He was truly excellent; knowledgeable, inspiring, passionate, very considerate and helpful at all times.
Mr Peter Newman"
