"The high plains (Alto Plano) were fantastic to experience and to see the people who survived there. View down into Chivay was very impressive. Drive up to Macchu Pichu was hairy but well worth it - the views were breathtaking at the top. Train from Puno to Cusco was very very enjoyable. We were not looking forward to a 10 hour train ride but thoroughly enjoyed it. Peru Rail staff very well turned out and very helpful and service on train excellent.

"Seeing two leopards up the same tree with a kill was a magical moment!

"This was a fabulous trip from beginning to end with charming and attentive local guides throughout and wonderful accommodation. The dawn balloon ride over Bagan was particularly magical as was the opportunity to get very close to the fishermen on Inle Lake – a photographer's dream!

"We had a fabulous time in Iran. Our carefully worked itinerary was nicely spaced and we were delighted with our female guide.
"Our contact Ewen Moore was readily available on the phone and dealt with all enquiries in a pleasant and efficient manner.
"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"
"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"
"Being in the desert was the most inspirational - quite spectacular. Loved being taken out to the top of a sand dune to watch the setting sun. Particularly liked The View hotel - excellent accommodation and meals.

"Visiting Petra - it was every bit as stunning as expected.
Mrs Stella Maxwell"
"The unplanned and unexpected encounter with a traditional Burmese procession taking young boys to the monastery to become monks and girls to have their ears pierced. Half a mile long, it consisted of ridden horses, oxcarts, ponies & traps, elephants and motor vehicles, all festooned with flowers and gay decorations and accompanied by loud music. It was not in a tourist location and was by the locals, for the locals. Absolutely glorious.
Mr Jeremy Waters"
"Our trip to Peru was the most exciting, interesting holiday I have ever had – in fact it was a life-changing experience.
"It is always inspiring to become acquainted with other cultures, and to see for oneself places known of through literature and other reportage media. Our experience of Russia was quite different from the present coverage in press. We were not particularly noticeable or significantly different from the generality of Russians. Perhaps the most pleasing moment was having supper in the restaurant of the National Hotel in Moscow, overlooking Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral. We couldn't have been positioned for a more iconic view, and the surroundings were sumptuous.
Ms Rosalind Lavington"
"The hotels were very well chosen, the levels of service excellent and our driver a delight to be with. Organising such trips is never easy and once again thank you for arranging a trip which we will never forget.
