“It is a real pity Jamaica has a bad reputation - our experience was really good. Tourists should use their common sense but we found locals to be friendly and welcoming. The pace was gentle and good if you go on holiday knackered from work !”

“Nepal was an amazing country with such diversity and so much culture to learn about. Seeing the mountains on the trek was a huge highlight. Its worth understanding that being in the mountains is unpredictable so the weather can change quickly & mountain views can vary too. If people feel the cold, they should consider bringing heat pads & plenty of layers to use in the tea houses. Changing money at the airport was the best value & ease although ATMs were available in the cities .A walking pole was essential on the trek as was very helpful while descending the many steps especially after rain. Our guide Udaya was very knowledgeable & able to assist us in any way needed throughout the trip. We felt very safe everywhere we travelled. Our group really got on well which helped to have a very relaxed & enjoyable time . There was so many amazing highlights, watching sunrise over the Annapurna range, meeting a rhino on our nature walk, white water rafting, colourful temples & very genuine locals.”

“This is a wonderful trip with an inspired itinerary, something I would like to shout from the rafters. I had been to Myanmar before in 2002, but I gained so much more from this second visit and the chance to see parts of Myanmar that were off limits in 2002. My only regret is that there were only four of us on this remarkable trip. ”
