"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"
"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.
"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"

Mr Charles Cox"
"A belated thank you so much for the arrangements you made for our recent trip to South Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday.
"We really enjoyed Trogon Lodge at San Gerado de Dota. Lovely location, friendly staff and excellent local guides.
Mr Colin Dickinson"
"The visit to the Temple of the Tooth in Kandi made a deep impression on me. It was intensely crowded with devout Buddhists and I was in the middle of the crush when the doors of the casket opened, yet felt perfectly safe. I have a high regard for the gentle Sri Lankan people. I find tea plantations exceptionally beautiful, and am thrilled with the rich colours and patterns of the small fruit and spice stalls.
Ms Phyllis Babb"
"We have previously received fantastic service from Cox & Kings and this time was no exception. Beginning with Roop Kumal our consultant, to the drivers and tour guides and Cox & Kings overseas managers, everyone was exceptional. Thank you.
Miss Janice Reeve"
"The whole holiday was a superb experience and now a fantastic memory. We are currently planning our next trip and without a shadow of a doubt it will be with Cox & Kings again.
"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.
Mr Michael Sumpster"
"I think Victoria Falls and then Bumi Hills resort were, without doubt, the highlights of the trip - which was a really fabulous trip.
