"One of the best holidays we have ever taken with several inspiring moments of which Machu Picchu has to be the top.
Mrs Angela Lawes"
"The opportunity to see the Taj Mahal, on two occasions, ie at sunset and at sunrise. This was all the more poignant for us as we saw the Taj Mahal, firstly, on Valentine's Day and, secondly, on my 60th birthday. It was perfect and well done for organising it on key dates!!
Mrs Wendy Emmott"
"It was a marvellous tour and a very good itinerary.
"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.

"The knowledge of our safari ranger and tracker was amazing. To see the animals at such close range, yet in a natural surrounding was unbelievable. We saw a lioness stalk and kill her prey which was sad yet incredible, after all it is what happens for their survival. The elephant drinking out of our plunge pool outside our lodge was the icing on the cake. The food and menus at the Great Fish River Lodge was excellent. I cannot fault the accommodation, food, or the staff they were fabulous.
Mrs Margaret Lambelle"
"There were many highlights on this tour but the tour of Delphi was excellent. With the back drop of the mountains, it was very peaceful and idyllic. The extension in Hydra was brilliant. It was a very relaxing and peaceful island and was ideal way to unwind before the main tour.
Miss Kerri Thomas"
"The arrival in St Petersburg was more beautiful than we expected and was so different to Moscow.
Mr Stanley Wood"
"[Inspirational moments include the] dawn boat ride at Varanasi, walking out to see the Taj Mahal early morning and the lakes at Udaipur.
Dr Alan Watson"
"I very much enjoyed the talks by William Taylor and our guide Hamdi, who were both very knowledgeable. Istanbul is a buzzy place with great scenery, history and interesting people & visitors. To see the city and its surroundings placed in perspective was very insightful. I learned a lot, from Rev'd Taylor and Hamdi and also the other party members. I am looking forward to going back to Istanbul in the future.
Dr Michael James"
"The medieval walled city of Khiva and desert fortresses visited en route [were inspirational].
Dr Keith Curtis"
"There was not one defining moment. It was simply the gradual build up of excellent day after excellent day.
Mrs Patricia Morton"
"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"
"Our holiday was all we hoped it would be and more - the standard of hotels and itinerary were superb and a credit to Cox & Kings. Your staff in this country were also most helpful and courteous, so again congratulations.
Mrs Barbara Johnson"
"We are experienced travellers and always looking for something a little different. We thought Ethiopia Odyssey was beyond our expectations and to see so many different Unesco World Heritage Sites in one holiday was exceptional. The wildlife content was unexpected and to see so many different types during such a short holiday was surprising. Would recommend Cox & Kings to others and congratulate them for putting together our holiday - the literature and the tour manager were first class.
Mr David King"
