Your testimonials

There's only one thing better than creating incredible holidays... and that's hearing all the stories when you get home. We are delighted to share with you a few tales from our recent travellers below:

  • Debbie Henchoz, Americas, 2015

    Cotapaxi Volcano, Ecuador

    "The amazing organisation, friendly emails and instant replies, were a great start to my trip. The itinerary was truly amazing and I wouldn't have changed a thing. One of my favourite moments happened when trekking in Cotopaxi National Park, when the clouds cleared exposing the volcano in all its beauty against a cloudless, turquoise sky."

  • Hannah Rustin, Colombia, 2015

    "Everyone was incredibly friendly, helpful and informative throughout. The trip was very well planned out and every single person we met made us feel safe, looked after and comfortable in a country unknown to us. The team really listened to what we wanted - travelling around Colombia was the most eye-opening, amazing experience."

  • Karen Redfearn, Uganda, 2015

    Gorilla in Uganda

    "The Gorilla trekking was amazing - on the first trek I was very lucky to be the only 'tourist' so I trekked with the guides and the Gorilla's vet who was a fascinating man; I had the most amazing day ever."

  • Dr Jelley, Colombia, 2015

    Ciudad Perdida, Colombia

    "If you want a holiday that takes you somewhere that only a few 1000 people visit each year, that you can only reach with considerable physical effort, and that takes you back in time deep into the jungle, then the 'Cuidade Perdida' is a truly wonderful trip. Your world may not feel quite the same again."

  • The Clews, Costa Rica, 2015

    Mr and Mrs Clews in Costa Rica

    "It was an incredible holiday from start to finish. The holiday included everything we wished for and more. The lodges were great, in particular the Trogon lodge and El Remanso, which had an extra special quality. Thank you for arranging this amazing experience. We are already looking for our next wildlife adventure!"

  • The Hogarths, Colombia, 2015

    Casa San Agustin

    "We loved all the small and individual hotels that you chose for us in Bogota, San Agustin, Cartagena and Santa Marta. All went very smoothly in a complex programme and all the guides were good, especially Francois in San Agustin and Daniel in Santa Marta who were particularly interesting."

  • Dr Jayant Pandya, Peru, 2015

    Sun Gate at Machu Picchu, Peru

    "This was the most memorable experience of my life. Truly great. Hiking the gruelling climb to get to 'The Dead Woman's Pass' was a great feat. Then having conquered the 'Gringo-Steps' to reach the Sun Gate we were rewarded with the breathtaking first view of Macchu Picchu - it was out of this world."

  • Heather Hall, Greenland, 2015

    Greenland boat

    "I loved having the opportunity to travel on a beautiful ship through a remote and amazing landscape. The crew on board the ship were excellent. Being a small ship we mingled quite a lot, and some of the crew joined us on shore for the snowshoeing, which was great."

  • The Parkinsons, India, 2015

    Family in India

    "I loved all the different experiences. I'm now spreading my whole house and bedroom with colour and Indian inspiration!" (Miss Parkinson, age 8)

  • The Hortons, Ecuador, 2015

    Beagle - Galapagos Islands

    "You really listened to what we asked for and did your best to meet every detail of our requests and requirements. The Beluga boat in Galapagos was outstanding (thank you for getting us the best cabin!) and Sanctuary Lodge at Machu Picchu and Muyuna Lodge on Amazon River were just amazing too."

  • The Cravens, Borneo, 2014

    Orang-utan in Borneo

    "Our trip was a perfect balance of adventure and relaxation. All the hard work of organising the tour and transport was taken out of our hands, so it was stress free. Our guides were exceptional in their knowledge and in the way they looked after us, and the variety of accommodation was excellent too."

  • The Houghs, Uzbekistan, 2014

    Scenic Valley, Uzbekistan

    "The opportunity to travel with a knowledgeable guide through a part of the world that has long held my interest was the most wonderful experience. In 5,000kms we travelled from the banks of the Oxus, through deserts, steppes (I rode a horse in the shade of Genghis Khan), and over high mountain passes."

  • The Beares, Colombia, 2014

    Deep Blue - Colombia

    "The variety of accommodation was excellent and the guides were first class; they were friendly, spoke good English, and were knowlegeable - we could not have asked for better. We are very grateful to you for all the time you put into compiling this itinerary which enabled us to see a great deal of Colombia."
