"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.

"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!
"Thank you for making our holiday both wonderful and memorable.
"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.

"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.

"The astonishing moment of entering the Cathedral of Monreale and the drama of the golden mosaics. Stupendous impact.

"I have longed to visit Gwalior fort and Bundi town since I saw pictures of both in an Insight guide to India over 20 years ago. Gwalior fort is spectacular - rising above the clean and organised town of Gwalior- it is breathtakingly majestic yet delicately beautiful with its stunning yellow, blue and iridescent turquoise tile work stretching into the distance along the perimeter wall. The interior was a surprise - incredibly well preserved in parts with exquisite carvings and evidence of sophisticated cooling and sound systems. Exceeded expectations! To finally see the romantically beautiful town of Bundi was a dream come true - a secret treasure trove of golden walls housing stunning artwork amidst crumbling ruins, Sadly neglected and in desperate need of Unesco intervention to save one of the most exquisite palace complexes in Rajasthan.

"Arriving at the desert camp at Manvar, going on the camel ride at sunset and staying in the camp overnight. Also visiting the Bishnoi tribe and realising that they have such an admirable philosophy.

"In the Udawalawe National Park the wild elephants, several females with two babies, came right up to the jeep and continued to feed beside us without moving away. It was lovely seeing the elephants at the orphanage too, but a sight I shall not forget was watching a young one standing at the bottom of the slipway, crossing his front legs back and forth in time to the beat of the music coming from a restaurant nearby. He was dancing for fun!

"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.

"[Inspirational moments include the] dawn boat ride at Varanasi, walking out to see the Taj Mahal early morning and the lakes at Udaipur.
