"I would like to thank the travel advisor, Jonathan Fitzsimmonds for his patience, help and advice during the booking process. We were rather late in trying to arrange everything and I think we presented him with quite a challenge! He rose to it brilliantly. Almost every aspect of the holiday went like clockwork and we had a wonderful time. I think we were quite lucky to get an experienced driver too. His depth of knowledge of the wildlife, and in particular the birds, was invaluable. All in all, a fantastic holiday and we hope to return to Uganda in the not too distant future.

"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"
"A good holiday which provided an excellent introduction to Madagascar, in a short space of time. The holiday was well planned, which meant that I was able to see a lot in one week. The tour manager was really excellent - one of the best tour managers I have had on a holiday of this kind.
"The hotels were very well chosen, the levels of service excellent and our driver a delight to be with. Organising such trips is never easy and once again thank you for arranging a trip which we will never forget.
"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.

"As a couple in our sixties, the trek was an experience of a lifetime. We would like to express our sincere thanks to our fantastic guide Prem - his local knowledge and his enthusiasm simply made the holiday perfect. Thank you very much for an extremely enjoyable holiday.
"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"
"The range and variety of sites and excursions was excellent. Wadi Rum was my favourite closely followed by my first glimpse of Petra through the Siq.

"There were many highlights on this tour but the tour of Delphi was excellent. With the back drop of the mountains, it was very peaceful and idyllic. The extension in Hydra was brilliant. It was a very relaxing and peaceful island and was ideal way to unwind before the main tour.

"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.
"We are experienced travellers and always looking for something a little different. We thought Ethiopia Odyssey was beyond our expectations and to see so many different Unesco World Heritage Sites in one holiday was exceptional. The wildlife content was unexpected and to see so many different types during such a short holiday was surprising. Would recommend Cox & Kings to others and congratulate them for putting together our holiday - the literature and the tour manager were first class.
Mr David King"
"There were almost too many to mention; Holi festival was amazing, sights in Rajastan were just as I imagined them to be. I appreciated the visits to Bishnoi villages, a good opportunity to see rural life. I also appreciated the excellent room at the Taj Palace in Mumbai. As a single traveller I often find that the rooms I am given are inferior, despite the supplement charged; this was not the case on this holiday.

"Just to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Iran. Our carefully worked itinerary was nicely spaced and we were delighted with our female guide.
"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.
