"I found Khiva fascinating. The hotel was very good and within a few minutes walk of the 'old town', which we first saw it lit by moonlight when we arrived and it was a stunning sight.
Mrs Judith King"
"The tour leader/speaker, Colin Bailey, provided many an inspirational moment. He was truly excellent; knowledgeable, inspiring, passionate, very considerate and helpful at all times.
Mr Peter Newman"
"It is always inspiring to become acquainted with other cultures, and to see for oneself places known of through literature and other reportage media. Our experience of Russia was quite different from the present coverage in press. We were not particularly noticeable or significantly different from the generality of Russians. Perhaps the most pleasing moment was having supper in the restaurant of the National Hotel in Moscow, overlooking Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral. We couldn't have been positioned for a more iconic view, and the surroundings were sumptuous.
Ms Rosalind Lavington"
"The whole trip was a fantastic mixture of old and new with the guide and drivers providing superb service and knowledge. Several inspirational points of the trip including: the night turtle viewing on the beach, dune driving, the night in the desert, being able to enter the Bahla Fort and look around it in comparative isolation, the drive up Jabel Shams and the canyon, and finally, the archaeological dig in Salalah.
Mr Kevin Mann"
"One of the best holidays we have ever taken with several inspiring moments of which Machu Picchu has to be the top.
Mrs Angela Lawes"
"Varanasi is an assault on all senses - people, sound, noise smell, colour - and it is also a very spiritual place despite the huge crowds. Unmissable.
Mrs Christine Love"
"Many thanks for arranging a brilliant itinerary in Namibia – we had an extraordinary time.
"There were a number of outstanding moments, but visiting the Taj Mahal plus Jaipur and the lovely Ramgarh Lodge were definitely highlights.
Mrs Petrina Abbot"
"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 beautiful buildings in Samarkand were awe-inspiring for me.
Mr Norman Young"
"The ordinary people of India were an inspiration in themselves with their poise, dignity and friendliness in difficult living conditions.
Mr Robin Ross"
"The Hassan II Mosque, The Chellah Necropolis, Fes Medina and the Badia Palace in Marrakech were the highlights in a tour full of interesting and colourful experiences in a packed programme.
Mr Anthony Suggitt"
"Our trip to Egypt that you organised ran like clockwork. Many, many thanks.
