"The guide, Valentino, was very efficient, excellent with local knowledge, always pleasant and punctual; an essential requirement. Comparing the desert and Patagonia is like comparing chalk and cheese. All the places had inspirational characteristics. Food and wine were varied and of a high standard.

"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 are writing to you to say thank you for all your organisation, help and advice in our booking of our holiday to Egypt. Once again many thanks to you in particular and to your team who have made our holiday such a success.
"The welcome and friendliness of the Chilean people coupled with their civilised attitude that is modelled on the UK, was inspirational. The scenery from the Atacama to Patagonia is just overwhelming.

"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.
"The arrival in St Petersburg was more beautiful than we expected and was so different to Moscow.
Mr Stanley Wood"
"One of the best holidays we have ever taken with several inspiring moments of which Machu Picchu has to be the top.

"It's not possible to give one inspirational moment, so here's my top five! 1. Being selected to feed one of the wild dolphins at Monkey Mia 2. A fantastic day out with Sylia Mills looking at the wonderful wild flowers of the region. 3. Meeting so many friendly Australians on the AAT Kings coach trip, a great way to not only see Australia but also get a real insight into the Australian mind set. 4. Re-visiting the amazing Pinnacles with their weird rock formations. 5 Visiting Penguin Island on my last day, the first day the island was opened after the little penguin breeding season.

"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"
"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.
