  • I have had the pleasure to have been on 2 of your holidays in the last 12 months & have to say they are probably the best 2 holidays I have ever had. I have told all my friends about your company & plan to continue to book many more trips in the future. Travelling alone but in the safety of an organised tour is perfect for a single woman like me. Thank you.

  • 'The holidays offer the right mix of group activities and free time at top destinations. But don't take my word for it; i've only been on 3-ask those who have taken 20 or 30 of their holidays!'

  • This was my second holiday with your company. Asia- Phuket was never a location I ever thought I would visit. Maybe it was the anxiety of traveling alone to Asia. The host (Justine) made me feel at ease, and there was always a new friend to share new exciting places with or just spending time alone. I wonder now what all the fuss was about. Looking forward to the next trip your organisation. Thank you to all the team cheers Susan

Everything was fabulous - Phuket itself, the magnificent Le Meridien resort, our group of people, the food, the activities, and our wonderful group co-ordinator Justine. Thank you so much for such a fun, awesome, memorable experience. I can't wait for my next holiday with you.'

The holiday was very good value for money and I made some new friends. The tour guide was excellent and looked after us all very well.

Trip highlights include floating down the river at the River Kwai jungle raft; feeding and bathing the elephants at the Elephant Nature Park; cycling around temple ruins and paying respects to our WW2 diggers at the Hellfire Pass memorial and the War cemetery.  A shout out to our guide, Suree who went above and beyond expectations to ensure we all had a great time and experienced the wonderful and beautiful side of Thailand.'
