"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.

"Our contact Ewen Moore was readily available on the phone and dealt with all enquiries in a pleasant and efficient manner.
"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.
Dr Muhammad Rahman"
"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"
"I am writing to thank you for organising our excellent holiday in Morocco. All the accommodation was superb and our transfers went smoothly.
"[The most inspirational moment was] when we finally arrived at the childhood home of my mother at Katerri Falls, south of Ooty in the beautiful Nilgri Hills tea plantation country. We now understand why she missed Southern India so much when she returned to England in the 1930s.
Mrs Charmian Bourne"
"Some excellent memories from each of the areas in Chile we visited – Santiago, the Atacama Desert, the Lake District, Torres del Paine National Park, Puerto Williams and Easter Island. The two highlights were Torres del Paine and Puerto Williams – in the former you felt as if you really were at the bottom of the world, almost like the outback in Australia. The daily activities in Puerto Williams were excellent.
Mr Brendan Fitzgerald"
"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.
Mrs Fiona Anderson"
"Visiting ancient buddhist temples, caves and ruins. I was inspired imagining so many monks dedicating themselves the the dharma teachings of the Buddha.
Mrs Anthea Murray"
"Standing in the Registan in Samarkand and marvelling at some of the most jaw-dropping and imposing Islamic architecture I've ever seen against a clear as crystal blue sky.
Ms Wendy Proctor"
"There were so many inspirational moments - all the major sights were so good to see with very few people."
"Our trip to Egypt that you organised ran like clockwork. Many, many thanks.
"The guidance and advice you provided were invaluable. Your choice of locations, itinerary were all spot on. Your efforts in preparing your colleagues for our arrival and your kindness throughout were all fantastic. We truly have returned with the rich taste of both northern and southern India we had hoped we would experience.
"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.
