"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.
"Most inspirational moment - Khiva - beautiful and unexpected although the people came close: friendly, interested proud of their country. Discussing jewellery, children and husbands with ladies selling bread in the market, and not a word of a common language between us, but we communicated just fine!
Mrs Jane Laver"
"A belated thank you so much for the arrangements you made for our recent trip to South Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday.
"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"
"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"
"Loved the variety included in the holiday and the visit to Machu Picchu will never be forgotten.
Mrs Carole Wilson"
"I just wanted to say thank you to you for arranging my recent trip to Egypt. It was a wonderful holiday and I felt really taken care of from beginning to end. Your advice regarding the extra day was excellent and the upgrade to a pyramid view room worth every penny.
"I had a wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka. It was the most amazing and unforgettable experience with my family. I also want to say a very special thank you to you for making such a big effort for my birthday and making our stay as pleasant as possible. Thank you too for the lovely gifts which I liked very much.
Miss Melissa Ng"
"We planned the trip with Cox & Kings over an extended period and the whole experience surpassed anything that we could have imagined. We have never been treated so courteously, professionally and enthusiastically. It was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
"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.
"[Inspirational moments include the] dawn boat ride at Varanasi, walking out to see the Taj Mahal early morning and the lakes at Udaipur.
Dr Alan Watson"
"The medieval walled city of Khiva and desert fortresses visited en route [were inspirational].
Dr Keith Curtis"
"We would like to thank Cox & Kings for making our 40th wedding anniversary such a memorable occasion.
Mr and Mrs Whitney"
"There were almost too many highlights to single out just one. However, I would have to include the first sight of the Taj Mahal in any shortlist. There were so many other wondrous buildings. We also greatly enjoyed the trip to the local village in Jaipur as it gave us a better insight as to how the rural community live.
