The most easterly and youngest of the Canadian provinces, Newfoundland and Labrador encompass two distinct parts: the northerly mainland region known as Labrador, and the island of Newfoundland to the south, separated by the Straits of Belle Isle (Labrador Straits). Newfoundland receives the majority of visitors, with more tourist facilities and a network of scenic driving tours, accessible national parks and historic sites. Highlights include superb wildlife viewing with many whales, puffins and moose, and an interesting culture that has been influenced by English, Irish, French, and Aboriginal heritage. Direct international flights arrive into St John’s, while the town of Gander has connections to other Canadian cities.

"Yogesh, our tour guide really made this holiday for us. He was an excellent guide and he's a huge asset to Cox and Kings. He was very informative about life in India and was extremely knowledgeable. The most inspirational moment of the holiday was visiting the Taj Mahal. Somewhere I've been wanting to visit for years and it was even more magical than I'd expected.

"We had a marvellous time! Our driver Rarjed was brilliant at finding the animals and positioning the car just so. Seeing our first lion on the first day was so exciting. The view of the Masai Mara from Serena Mara lodge was an awe inspiring experience. Watching two male giraffes fighting was an unforgettable sight. As you can see it is impossible to pick the most inspirational moment, the whole trip was a dream come true."
"Seeing so many animals in their natural surroundings and our guides ability to spot wildlife and his knowledge of the animals and plants we saw. The private journey was well worth the extra cost because our guide got to know what we wanted to see and did his best to find the things that were most interesting to us.

"Our trip to Guatemala was a great success. Thanks for organising such a great itinerary. There was plenty of contrasts, changes of pace etc to ensure there was always something of interest without being rushed around from sight to sight.
"An excellent itinerary. Transfers were seemless.

"Three equally moving scenes - the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, the town of Cusco, and Machu Picchu. The trip brought out the rich, and extensive, cultural heritage of Peru through the variety of places that our tour included.

"Everything went so smoothly, the tour was very well-organised and excellent value for money.
Mr P Osborne"
"The most inspirational moment was when we reached the summit of Sigiriya and viewed the wonderful vista. I would urge anyone who visits Sri Lanka not to miss this. It is truly worthwhile.
Dr David Rainford"
"The floating islands on lake titicaca were impressive. The views at Machu Piccu and Rio de Janerio were fantastic.

"Petra was by far the most special place I have ever been to.
Mr Toby Joyce"
"Registan Square in Samarkand - The sight was so extraordinarily beautiful it took our breath away, and we all stood silent for several minutes, just taking in the scene. I think this site is one of the wonders of the world.
Dr. Eva Simmons"
"Peru was definitely one of the highlights. On a tour such as the Grand Tour of South America there will be many highlights. One of the unexpected real highlights for me were the rail journeys in Peru. PeruRail are fantastic and the three rail journeys we took were amazing. Great fun, well organised and very good quality trains and staff.
Mrs Claire Lawley-Woods"
"Visiting Petra - it was every bit as stunning as expected.
