"[The most inspirational moment was] when we finally arrived at the childhood home of my mother at Katerri Falls, south of Ooty in the beautiful Nilgri Hills tea plantation country. We now understand why she missed Southern India so much when she returned to England in the 1930s.

"The visit to the Moscow Kremlin and Armoury was inspirational. The walk around the grounds, the churches, bell tower, gardens, tomb of the unknown soldier followed by a visit to the Armoury was amazing.
Mrs Jacqueline Rule"
"The most inspirational moment was impossible to define - so many interesting and beautiful places including of course Machu Picchu.
Mr Gordon Claridge"
"The contrast between high-tech Tokyo and the Bullet trains, and the tranquility and peace of the Rock Garden and the floating gate at Hiroshima. The two nights in the Ryokens were memorable experiences. We also deliberately chose to go in November to experience the Autumn colour, and we were not disappointed.
Ms Janice Murton"
"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.
Mrs Christine Love"
"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.
"We experienced a wonderful holiday and a friendly group of travelling companions; it was good to be part of a small group with a considerate and efficient tour escort.
Mrs Brenda Everest"
"We enjoyed it all. Kyrenia was a beautiful town but we were very impressed with the walking tours of Farmagusta and Nicosia.
Mrs Maureen Cooke"
"The tour was consistently excellent in content, with new experiences each day. It was the overall joy of being in a country with friendly people, full of varied (and sometimes exciting) scenery, ancient forts, ultra modern mosques and even an opera house that we most remember. Our disappointment of not seeing turtles at Sur was compensated by seeing one in Muscat Harbour, diving and surfacing as it fed on the weed attached to the rocks.
Mr Clive Brooks"
"On Wadi Rum I felt that I was either on the moon or on a filmset. The views and the feeling of space and wilderness were wonderful.
Mrs Anita Bird"
"The floating islands on lake titicaca were impressive. The views at Machu Piccu and Rio de Janerio were fantastic.
Mrs Hilary Reid"
"Our tour in Mongolia was the most marvellous experience and a great adventure far exceeding expectations.
Mr and Mrs Dewing"
"It's not possible to give one inspirational moment, so here's my top five! 1. Being selected to feed one of the wild dolphins at Monkey Mia 2. A fantastic day out with Sylia Mills looking at the wonderful wild flowers of the region. 3. Meeting so many friendly Australians on the AAT Kings coach trip, a great way to not only see Australia but also get a real insight into the Australian mind set. 4. Re-visiting the amazing Pinnacles with their weird rock formations. 5 Visiting Penguin Island on my last day, the first day the island was opened after the little penguin breeding season.

"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.
