"Arriving at the desert camp at Manvar, going on the camel ride at sunset and staying in the camp overnight. Also visiting the Bishnoi tribe and realising that they have such an admirable philosophy.
Mrs Susan Rawson"
"Seeing the Himalayas emerge from the cloud and trekking in the Himalayas was awe inspiring.
Ms Christine Smith"
"There were so many [inspirational moments]: the houseboat in Alleppey, the first sight of Kochi harbour at dusk, the Chola temples. An all-round excellent mix.

"Varanasi is an assault on all senses - people, sound, noise smell, colour - and it is also a very spiritual place despite the huge crowds. Unmissable.
Mrs Christine Love"
"In the Udawalawe National Park the wild elephants, several females with two babies, came right up to the jeep and continued to feed beside us without moving away. It was lovely seeing the elephants at the orphanage too, but a sight I shall not forget was watching a young one standing at the bottom of the slipway, crossing his front legs back and forth in time to the beat of the music coming from a restaurant nearby. He was dancing for fun!
Ms Phyllis Babb"
"Words could not describe the elation and incredible time we spent in India and Bhutan. No one could ever cap that. Thank you so much for all your efforts.
"Overall, it was a real eye-opener on India - the place & the people - both in a good way. The Taj has to be the absolute highlight but many many other aspects were inspirational - it really is an Indian 'experience'!
Ms Sheena Ellwood"
"It was all incredible and the organisation was excellent. The knowledge of the guides made the holiday inspirational for we were taken back in time and had a glorious picture painted of the Moghul era and Rajput era. The guide for the taj mahal was inspired and we were caught up in the romance and historical truths. In Jaipur the Amber fort was described superbly as well as Fatehpur Sikri. The excellence of the Delhi guide has stayed with us into our long term memory. This is a standard of high scholarship and deeply engaging presentation.
Mrs Kiron Wilcox"
"There were almost too many highlights to single out just one. However, I would have to include the first sight of the Taj Mahal in any shortlist. There were so many other wondrous buildings. We also greatly enjoyed the trip to the local village in Jaipur as it gave us a better insight as to how the rural community live.
Mrs Gwendoline Wilkins"
"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 Taj Mahal was fantastic, the people in India were overwhelming, they made me feel very humble.
Mr David Bonham"
"I had a wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka. It was the most amazing and unforgettable experience with my family. I also want to say a very special thank you to you for making such a big effort for my birthday and making our stay as pleasant as possible. Thank you too for the lovely gifts which I liked very much.
Miss Melissa Ng"
"The visit to the Temple of the Tooth in Kandi made a deep impression on me. It was intensely crowded with devout Buddhists and I was in the middle of the crush when the doors of the casket opened, yet felt perfectly safe. I have a high regard for the gentle Sri Lankan people. I find tea plantations exceptionally beautiful, and am thrilled with the rich colours and patterns of the small fruit and spice stalls.
Ms Phyllis Babb"
"Having tea with a Maharjah. Lucky to travel at Holi time and enjoy the festivities.
