Keith's review for another Explore tour
“Our first trip with Explore was to South Africa for our honeymoon and it was fantastic. Out of the many trips we have taken it remains our favourite.
Costa Rica is well up there with a couple of others in second place. A wonderful experience.”

Ann's review for another Explore tour
“All in all a very good value for money trip, we saw lots of an interesting country and met with quite a few local people.We particularly liked the 2 meals we had in private houses. The food was excellent and the hosts extremely friendly. These were excellent choices. Also the night spent at the Erg Chebbi desert camp as part of the trip was an added bonus, as were the star lit sky and wonderful sunset and sunrise. The desert camel ride also an experience. I must say our group all got on well together and we have had contact since arriving home.An excellent trip.”

Janet's review for another Explore tour
“Towards the end of our trip the political situation in Assam became volatile with demonstrations, strikes and roadblocks. The Explore team, local agents and our tour leaders responded promptly and professionally. At no time did we ever feel concerned although we were well aware that everyone was working very hard to ensure our safety. Sanjeev Gorung our tour leader and Deep our local guide were superb. We were extracted from Assam and given a short programme of visits to cover an extra three days in Kolkata. Although we were disappointed to miss some of the trip nothing could have been done better in the circumstances.”
