    excluding flights
    Fantastic. My teenage, and somewhat well-travelled children have rated it as the best vacation ever. (more)Alex Holmes

    Central America small group tour
    US $2,635

    Memorable parts? Snorkelling in Caye Caulker, Belize, was an amazing experience! Nurse sharks, stingrays and turtles, not to mention oodles of brightly coloured fish, seemed completely oblivious to our presence, and Hol Chan Marine Reserve, with its dazzling array of corals and fish, was stunning. What a fantastic day! Just as good, but for different reasons, was the memorable Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave - wading through water; scrambling up, over and under rocks; and marvelling at the...

    French Alps self guided walking holiday

    We had a fantastic time staying in Samoens... The walking was amazing at this time of year: alpine meadows, wildflowers, waterfalls, and glacial landscapes, and not too challenging: we ranged between 500m and 970m ascent in a day.

    Memorable parts? So many things, but the hike in Ronda what so memorable-- watching the light change with the sun rise, all the fruit trees we strolled through and the stunning view of the walled city. The chance to shop for and make Paella in Valencia was also a huge hit. Exploring the food and drink in the back alleys of Seville was wonderful too. The Alhambra was spectacular. Wandering through the orange trees in the gardens of the Moorish palaces was so special. Tips? Travel... (more)Barbara Harrison
