"Going to Varanasi which is a unique experience - an amazing combination of devout faith coupled with the madness that is India.
Mrs Anneke Berrill"
"As on any tour, the guides are vital to the smooth running and harmony of the tour. I don’t believe these holidays have highlights, they are all highlights from start to finish. Thanks for a great holiday.
"It was our first time in India and we expected it to be thrilling, and it was. The sites were magnificent; even more amazing than we had anticipated, and we had a terrific guide throughout.
Mr Adrian Wright"
"The whole organisation worked incredibly well and we had a most informative and enjoyable visit. Yoshie Matsumoto must be the most outstanding guide in Japan. She was absolutely superb and added a great deal to our enjoyment.
"Our first evening in Khiva was magical. We walked by ourselves in the almost deserted streets of the old city and felt transported in another world, with the beautiful mosques and madrassas rising in the dying light. There were many amazing moments during the group visits but I would pick the climb to the Zoroastrian tower of silence near Nukus, looking at the great Oxus river and thinking of the flow and ebb of the ancient civilisations and cultures that were built and destroyed over the centuries in this now forgotten heart of Central Asia.
Dr Mireille Levy"
"The whole India experience was amazing but nothing prepares you for your first sight of the Taj Mahal and sunrise.
Mr Tony Dellow"
"Seeing Machu Picchu was still a wow moment even after visiting the other Inca sites.
Mr Mark Paterson"
"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"
"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"
"We learned so much about the values, tastes influences and interests of a people that look directly into your eyes and respond with humour and interest. We haven't laughed so much in ages. This has been a truly life changing visit... Thank you once again for an amazing experience.
Mr and Mrs Phillips"
"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"
"I would like to tell you that it was a wonderful trip. Thank you for organising it so well.
"We were so impressed by the conservation and environmental policies of Costa Rica. An example to the world! The flora and fauna were the reason we chose Costa Rica and we were not disappointed.
Mr John Kettle"
"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'!
