Spectacular Scenery!

Canada's Rocky Mountaineer

Price: from £3999 p.p

Experience the magnificent Rocky Mountains on this Canadian tour, travel along the ‘road of steel’ and finally arrive at Vancouver as one of the most naturally beautiful cities.

The Canadian Rockies must surely rank amongst the very finest of scenic and wildlife holidays on earth. The magnificent Rocky Mountains are Canada’s crowning glory and we stay in Banff, the very heart of the mountains.

The magnificent Rocky Mountains are Canada’s crowning glory: home to bears, majestic elk, moose and beaver, with vast forests that seem to go on forever. Opaque lakes of stunning emerald green and turquoise reflect the magnificent scenery like no other place on earth. Carpets of wild flowers bedeck the green meadows spread beneath the towering glaciers – huge expanses of brilliant white ice and snow, contrasting with the muted greys and pinks of the jagged peaks. We stay in Banff, the very heart of the mountains, then travel along a monument to man’s engineering prowess, the ‘road of steel’ that is the great Trans-Canadian railway, on the incredible Rocky Mountaineer train. Crossing high passes, deep ravines and innumerable spectacular bridges, places that can only be seen by rail, the Rocky Mountaineer is acknowledged as the ultimate way to travel through the beautifully rugged terrain of Alberta and British Columbia.

Finally, we arrive in Vancouver, nestling beside the immense majesty of the Pacific Ocean, which ranks alongside Sydney, Cape Town and San Francisco as one of the world’s most naturally beautiful panoramas. With its gleaming glass skyscrapers reflected in the azure-blue ocean, Canada’s third largest city is a fascinating and cosmopolitan metropolis encircled by water and mountains.

Great for Wildlife

Costa Rica-From the Caribbean to the Pacific

Price: from £4599 p.p

Our tour starts from the country’s capital of San José before striking out for the Tortuguero National Park on Costa Rica’s eastern Caribbean coast, a labyrinth of canals, rivers and lagoons covered in thick forest and mangroves. Tortuguero means ‘turtle catcher’ and the many species of turtles which lay their eggs on these beaches came close to extinction until the area was declared a national park. You can also expect to see caimans, several types of monkeys and a huge number of endemic and migratory bird species, including toucans, macaws and raptors. More rarely seen inhabitants include tapirs, jaguars and manatees.

We continue cross-country towards the Arenal volcano. With a perfect cone, numerous hot springs and surrounded by its own national park, roughly half the species of Costa Rica can be found here. We’ll take an easy walk along one of the many trails nearby and see some attractive views of the peak. From our comfortable base we will also visit the Caño Negro reserve, close to the border with Nicaragua. The main access route here is along the Rio Frio and the best way to spot wildlife is our boat safari which gives you uninterrupted views along its banks. More than 300 bird species have been identified here, including kingfishers, ibis, toucans, storks and even a type of vulture, plus you are also likely to see caimans and monkeys.

Our next port of call is the renowned Monteverde Cloud Forest, a unique ecosystem created by the warm Pacific winds being pushed up and condensing on the mountain slopes. The trees here are covered in mist and mossy vines, bromeliads, ferns and the greatest diversity of orchids on the planet. We explore via a system of hanging bridges so as to look down on the thick vegetation below. There’s plenty of hummingbirds here and you may be lucky enough to spot a quetzal. You may also choose to experience the incredible thrill of zip-wiring through the forest – this is one of the best places in the country to try this (at extra charge).

Our final stay for three nights is at a five-star resort in Guanacaste on the Pacific coast. Known for its beautiful palm-fringed beaches, this is the perfect spot to take some time off, relax, find a nice restaurant or bar and watch the sun slowly sink into the mighty Pacific Ocean.

India

Price: from £1949 p.p

Immerse yourself in this tour and prepare for a revamp of any preconceptions towards one of the world’s ‘must-see’ destinations! The jewel of our tour is surely the Taj Mahal in the early morning, when its colours and ethereal beauty is at its most amazing. We’ll see the real India, a subcontinent that covers the full gamut of evolution, from the natural world, including the nation’s unofficial symbol, the tiger, in Ranthambore, through the Rajasthan forts and palaces of the Moghul Empire, to the more recent Raj and British colonial influence.

India is not all history and architecture – genuine Indian cuisine is far more varied and interesting than what we are used to at home. From a simple hot chapatti fresh from the oven to the delicate spices of Kheer, a sweet rice pudding, a trip to India will change your view of Indian cookery. Our India tour encompasses the very best of northern India, ensuring a lifetime of truly amazing memories.

Reviews & Recommendations

Hi Paul and team,

just returned from our Caribbean cruise, we both had such a lovely time, enjoyed every second, thank you for your guidance in booking,

looking forward to the next.

Been meaning to write a review for ages! I cannot recommend this company enough. Personal service throughout and was absolutely effortless. As for the holiday itself we went to the Bahamas which was somewhere I’ve dreamed of going for years but assumed was not in my budget! But upon enquiring I explained where we’d like to go and for what budget and Zoe (who I dealt with throughout) who was absolutely lovely, super knowledgable and helpful and spent ages patiently finding us different options with no pressure at all. We eventually decided on a sandals resort which was out of this world and the location was honestly paradise on earth. We Will be back very soon to book our family summer holiday! Thanks so much again.

Cannot recommend Leanne enough!! After booking us the most perfect holiday a couple of weeks ago, we were gutted when it got cancelled due to being with Thomas Cook! But Leanne sorted everything out for us within the first day of finding out making things as stress free as possible for us, she was amazing! We are excited our holiday is all booked again ☺️☺️
