Nunavut The newest of Canada’s provinces, Nunavut is a vast region that split in 1999 from the Northwest Territories and is characterised by Arctic tundra. The region is best visited in summer, when it comes alive with wildlife: caribou does and their newborn calves, roaming black bears and muskox. Many migratory bird species make the offshore islands their home, including Canada geese and eider ducks.

"isits to the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, Temples of Hatshepsut, Karnac and Luxor, and the Egyptian Museum at Cairo were a 'not to be missed' lifetime experience. The Mirage 1 was a clean and efficient boat with a colonial style and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Everyone was amazingly attentive, punctual and friendly. One of our best holidays ever. Really it was a great adventure - thank you Cox & Kings.

"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.

"We have recently returned from our honeymoon in Japan and just wanted to let you know what an absolutely fantastic time we had! Our guide was fantastic, the accommodation in Tokyo and Kyoto was first class and the ryokan on Miyamira Island was an amazing experience. The trip was certainly the holiday of a lifetime, which was perfect as it was our honeymoon.

"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.

"There were many inspirational moments each with their own quality. The tour manager, Garry, was quite outstanding and all the members of my party agreed that apart from the unique sights of China he was a major factor in making it a wonderful holiday.
"The Hassan II Mosque, The Chellah Necropolis, Fes Medina and the Badia Palace in Marrakech were the highlights in a tour full of interesting and colourful experiences in a packed programme.

"Thank you for all your organisation, help and advice in the booking of our holiday to Egypt. Many thanks to your team, who have made our holiday such a success.
"It's difficult to pick an individual moment. The whole visit was so exceptionally interesting, demanding, informative, thought-provoking... The boat trip on the Neva was dramatic and evocative, the view across St Petersburg (I felt I could see all the way to the Baltic) on the first evening from the hotel restaurant on the 9th floor, the Faberge eggs.... all the places were stunning in different ways.

"Visiting Petra - it was every bit as stunning as expected.

"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.
"We have had many holidays in different parts of the world, but this certainly ranks among the best. Thank you once again for your help and patience in organising it.
Mr and Mrs A Sherwood"
"Most inspirational moment - Khiva - beautiful and unexpected although the people came close: friendly, interested proud of their country. Discussing jewellery, children and husbands with ladies selling bread in the market, and not a word of a common language between us, but we communicated just fine!
Mrs Jane Laver"
"The landscapes of Namibia were more than I had imagined and the people so friendly. All your hotels and lodges were perfect. Once again, many thanks for a wonderful holiday. We will certainly use Cox & Kings again!
"The trip you arranged for us was brilliant and everything you arranged not only ran smoothly but the quality of service was exceptional. Thanks so much for you patience and efficient help and for arranging a perfect itinerary.
