"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"
"Just to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Iran. Our carefully worked itinerary was nicely spaced and we were delighted with our female guide.
"The two highlights of the holiday were Tortoguero and Cana Negro. The wildlife was fabulous, and varied. The forests were beautiful. We were very lucky to see an enormous migration of vultures.
Mrs Geraldine Stevens"
"Visiting Petra - it was every bit as stunning as expected.
Mrs Stella Maxwell"
"The holiday was superb. Everything was perfect: nobody could have wished for a better honeymoon. Our driver was excellent and it felt very luxurious being driven around. He was very courteous and looked after us so well - far above and beyond the call of duty.
Mr John and Trudy Cornes
"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 highlight of the holiday was indoubtedly the visit to the Angkor Wat temple and the other temples at Angkor Tom; both the scale of the temples and the detail of the bas relief carvings were absolutely stunning.
Mr Douglas Hutton"
"The highlights were seeing the rainforest for the first time, the knowledge of our local guides was also amazing. Costa Rica has been the holiday of a lifetime for me…I cannot fault the service.
"The floating islands on lake titicaca were impressive. The views at Machu Piccu and Rio de Janerio were fantastic.
Mrs Hilary Reid"
"The guide, Valentino, was very efficient, excellent with local knowledge, always pleasant and punctual; an essential requirement. Comparing the desert and Patagonia is like comparing chalk and cheese. All the places had inspirational characteristics. Food and wine were varied and of a high standard.
Mr Stephen Fidler"
"There were several inspirational moments - the visit to the temple of the Tooth in Kandy, the visit to Yala national park and the ascent of Sigirya. If I had to choose one it would be the leopard sighting at Yala.
Mr Niall Bowser"
"A truly fascinating holiday discovering the astonishing beauty of New Zealand."
"I found Khiva fascinating. The hotel was very good and within a few minutes walk of the 'old town', which we first saw it lit by moonlight when we arrived and it was a stunning sight.
Mrs Judith King"
"Seeing animals unique to Madagascar in their natural environment and able to photograph them as they fed and interacted with each other [was inspirational]. The tour guide, Tokey, had an amazing knowledge of all of the wildlife, plants - latin names included - and the history of the country and its people and customs.
