Vietnam Holidays

Vietnam is an assault on the senses, a land of patchwork emerald green rice paddies worked by farmers wearing conical hats, remote mountains home to colourful hill tribes, a pristine coastline dominated by palm-fringed sandy beaches, and buzzing cities where the past meets present in streets crammed with thousands of motorbikes.

Wonderful wildlife in Costa Rica

The holiday was wonderful. We cannot praise the organisation and smooth-running of the itinerary enough.
