"Our trip to Peru was the most exciting, interesting holiday I have ever had – in fact it was a life-changing experience.
"Our guide Bhavari added to our enjoyment of the Amber Fort by telling us all about the historical background and explaining his own views. Rattan our guide in Delhi was also excellent. He is 75 and traced the huge changes he has seen in India through his own life story.

"I really can't really pick out one moment, all of it was wonderful. Our guide, Tahir, was marvellous. Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful.

"All my life I was dreaming of seeing Petra and I finally managed to get there. Hassan, our guide had in depth knowledge and although I would have loved to spend a lot more time there he managed to show us a great deal. As a taster it was great and I will return on my own and probably stay for a week!! But as a whole every place we visited was a highlight.

"Macchu Pichu & Lake Titicaca were both fantastic experiences, but it was the services of our tour leader Miguel which made our holiday so much more enjoyable - he was patient, professional and very efficient.

"I would particularly like to commend our tour guide, Yogesh who really made our holiday special. No request was too much for him. He had a brilliant knowledge of the history and culture of India, an hilarious sense of humour, endless patience and an insightful grasp of what we, as foreigners might find difficult, different, interesting or puzzling. Our grateful thanks to him.

"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.

"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"
"We experienced a wonderful holiday and a friendly group of travelling companions; it was good to be part of a small group with a considerate and efficient tour escort.

"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"
"Thank you for making our holiday both wonderful and memorable.
"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"
"Seeing the treasures of Tutankhamen in the Egyptian Museum. The jewellery was exquisite in both detail and artistry and in wonderful condition for its age. Also loved the view from the ship as we journeyed along the Nile. Fascinating view of the way of life. Tombs in the Valley of the Kings also a wonderful experience."
"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.
