Going over the sand dunes and staying in gers or in tents in what seemed to be in the middle of nowhere and then a herd of goats and sheep comes along. (more)Josephine Tanti
Climbing the 'Singing Sand Dunes' (Khongoryn Els) at sunset was amazing! It was a big effort to make it to the top, but we were rewarded with once-in-a lifetime views over the vast sand dunes and Gobi Desert while mother nature turned on a spectacular pink and purple hue. (more)Lynette Smith

I loved the wild swimming in beautiful pools and waterfalls, especially after walking on rocky paths in hot sun! The water was icy but very refreshing. And I had never been in a kayak before, and it was lovely to be on the lake. (more)Jennifer Smith

Kamchatka vacations, small group tour
From
£1,799
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many great moments. Our group seemed to gel very well, and the Russian team were terrific (although admittedly we had to get the first guide removed after day 3). I loved the rafting section, close to the bears and so peaceful. Shame about the rain. The lunar base camp and Dead Forest were extraordinary. Weather precluded a trip to the Valley of the Geysers, instead we helicoptered to Kuril Lake: what a day! The pilot descended into a volcano crater on the return... (more)Alastair Giddings

Santo Antao hiking vacations, Cape Verde Islands
From
US $1,029
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The hiking in Santo Antao is outstanding. The scenery is spectacular and the paths are generally pretty good with the locals always ready to lend a hand when you get lost. The local transfers of bags and hikers was generally very reliable (couple of minor issues but nothing more than we expected). The local "agent on the ground" was very good and Deborah did more than could be expected to help us to get sorted out after our delayed start. The accommodation was of a reasonable... (more)Pauline Knowler
Romania hiking vacation, 'Along the Enchanted Way' tour

Memorable parts? The doable yet challenging (for me) walks combined with cultural learning. Experiencing the remote villages, lifestyle and food in local accommodation. Sharing it with two terrific guides and a small group of companionable people. Tips? Pack light, take a hat and a good pair of boots and be prepared to soak up a the traditional culture and the magnificent vistas Romania has to offer. Local benefits? I would like to think it did via the local accommodation... (more)Helen Wildash

The whole trip was amazing, stunning scenery and lovely villa. We loved the hikes, out in the countryside seeing the local landscapes and the amazing insects.... Ben and Emma have immersed themselves in the local community, employing local people and the lunch at Tanya's (a local villager, where we stopped off on a hike) was amazing. (more)Liz Cush

Iraq Kurdistan vacation
From
£2,999

Memorable parts? The visit to the battlefield of 331BC Guagemela where Alexander the Great defeated Darius III was particularly good because of the excellent talk on the history and strategy employed. However the scenery in the mountains, the Kurdish people and the many historic and cultural site were all interesting and memorable. Tips? The more you have read about the area first the more I think you get from the trip. Be prepared to be flexible and enjoy it as it comes. Local... (more)Jenny Maddick

Bulgaria self guided hiking vacation
From
US $804
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Seeing all the beautiful wildflowers. May was a wonderful time of year to be there. Also the very warm welcome we received from local people in the smaller villages. Tips? You need to be aware that the trekking company in Bulgaria promotes the opportunity for solo travelers to save costs by traveling with a couple who've already booked. As you are mainly staying in very small places if someone else books the same dates you are likely to end up spending every evening... (more)Ruth Bradshaw

Azerbaijan small group vacation
From
£1,049
excluding flights
Azerbaijan is a great country and this trip definitely picked the highlights! I loved Baku, it is a great city with all the benefits of modern development including some stunning modern architecture, but also some beautiful historic buildings in the medieval walled city, and in the centre of town which has some amazing early 20c mansions built by the first Russian oil barons. (more)Olive O

Memorable parts? The most memorable part of my journey in Sudan was the Sudanese people, I have never experienced just a warm welcome in my life, it will for ever stay with me. Tips? Just book it, don't ponder about it and worry about safety, I never felt as safe and for me it was a trip of a lifetime. Local benefits? The trip was linked with a local tour operator, who were directly involved or had links with local projects just as schools and education. Also they employed... (more)Cathal Murphy
