"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.

"Walking into and around Petra was truly inspirational - two items of particular note would be the walk up to the 'High Place of Sacrifice' and the first view of 'The Monastery', given it's size and scale and seeing it immediately after a long climb..
Mr Gurpreet Dehal"
"The guide was the most impressive of all. She always responded to our individual needs and made the journey and tour very comfortable and enjoyable. She was a guide, a singer, a dancer, and above all a friend.
Dr Muhammad Rahman"
"The most inspirational moment was the first view of Registan Square in Samakand, which was the primary reason for our Uzbek trip and the overwhelming genuine friendliness of the Uzbek people.
Mr John Bourne"
"Thanks for all your help in creating a truly memorable holiday.
"The scenery was amazing throughout the tour, but the two main sights for us were St. Georges cruciform rock church and the Blue Nile falls. Both truly amazing.
Mr David Eyres"
"Walking down the Siq and seeing the Treasury opening in front of us. Then climbing all 900 steps to the Monastery.
Miss Margaret Sturmey"
"We had a great holiday. So thanks for your help and advice in putting that together.
"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.
"Our contact Ewen Moore was readily available on the phone and dealt with all enquiries in a pleasant and efficient manner.
"There was no one inspirational moment as there were so many! I shall never forget our granddaughter's wow moment when she saw the first elephant so close to our vehicle at Shamwari Game reserve.
Mrs Penelope Cook"
"Diana Driscoll educated us last year on Mughal Uzbekistan. Because of her we booked onto this Mughal India tour to continue our education. She is inspirational and enthuses us with her love of the subject. Everything about the tour was inspirational. If we have to choose just one thing.....it would be The residency at Lucknow. Also, the India based Tour Manager Madhav Das Rathmore was quite superb and liaised well with Diana, especially since this was the first time the tour had run and the first time they had worked together.
Mr Robert Mundell"
"We feel very privileged to have gone on such a special journey and we cannot thank you enough for the care and attention you took in selecting our itinerary.
"The medieval walled city of Khiva and desert fortresses visited en route [were inspirational].
