"Really hard to pick just one. Predictably, the cathedral in Córdoba, the Alcazar in Seville and the astonishing Alhambra Palace complex in Granada, in terms of visits. The fragrance of orange blossom on the streets was sublime. The kindness and warmth of people we met.
Rev Pauline Shelton"
"All your arrangements worked well and we had a wonderful few days in Istanbul.
"The whole Explora experience really is something special and I think pretty good value for money. I was the only person doing the Travesia from El Chalten to Torres del Paine - it was fantastic!
Mr. Peter Kudirka"
"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!
Mr Peter Bradbrook"
"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.
Dr. Eva Simmons"
"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"
"Almost too many [inspirational moments] to choose from - Lake Titicaca and its islands, Colca Canyon, Pre-Inca terraces, Alto Plano, native craftwork, Machu Picchu, Native South American peoples and their history, customs, values and characters, being at Machu Picchu on my 67th birthday...
Ms Lesley Evans"
"We had the most wonderful time there thanks to your organisation.
"We witnessed a society that values the family, respects differences and keenly observes old fashioned good manners. Thank you once again for an amazing experience.
Mr & Mrs Phillips"
"My husband and I both thought the tour was excellent - very well thought out and executed - but John made the trip for us. I would rate him as one of the best tour leaders I have ever encountered - and I state that after travelling widely and frequently for over 40 years. John worked continuously in the most conscientious manner. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he took a huge pride in his work. John definitely added a quality and enjoyment factor to our travelling experience. I hope this young man has a great future in tourism - he is certainly a credit to your company. Our driver was very good, too. I was enchanted by the beauty of the landscape and would love to return to Madagascar sometime in the future. Thank you for show-casing this beautiful island in such a great way.
Mrs Jeanette Ruberry"
"Overall, it was a real eye-opener on India - the place & the people - both in a good way. The Taj has to be the absolute highlight but many many other aspects were inspirational - it really is an Indian 'experience'!
Ms Sheena Ellwood"
"The entire holiday was excellent and it is difficult to single out any specific moment which was more inspirational than other moments/events.
Mr Robert Knox"
"Among many, including crossing the walkways at Monteverde in driving rain and a strong wind, the real highspot was the visit to La Selva. We felt privileged visitors, had a superb guide and saw an amazing range of animals and birds within a remarkably short time. If only we had had longer there.
Mr Paul Langridge"
"The acommodation and game drive arrangements were first class and the ranger went out of his way to get us in the best positions to view the wildlife and his knowledge was amazing. At Isandwhana and Rorkes Drift the resident historian brought the battles to life to the extent that you almost felt you were there.
Mr Harvey Harrison"
