Madagascar - Secrets of Madagascar (Group Tour)

Before booking we did a great deal of research online, and scrutinised the Bradt and Lonely Planet guides to help choose our itinerary and travel company. We are so pleased that we chose “Undiscovered Destinations” and that you helped to shape our final selection of places to visit and stay. Our itinerary proved to be excellent, and the local guide “Ghislan” could not have been better. He was knowledgeable, communicative, enthusiastic and a pleasure to travel with. The vehicles and drivers were also very good.

Peter Gosling, UK

Fantastic holiday both in content and arrangements. Your company could not have done better in organising this trip.

George Bannister, UK


Ethiopia - Omo Valley Explorer / Historic Ethiopia (Group Tour)

We'd describe this trip as one of the best we've had anywhere in the world. The encounters with the tribespeople were enjoyable. We felt lucky and privileged to witness a Hamer bull jumping ceremony.

Mike and Sue Croft, UK

Fantastic trip and itinerary. Well-paced. Good balance of activity and free time. Will definitely consider booking with Undiscovered Destinations again.

Burma – Beyond the Tourist Trail (Group Tour)

Our guide Nyo was brilliant, speaking more than good enough English and understood our desire to see more of the people and country and arranged visits around this. She is very knowledgeable and willing to share this with us.

Andrew and Jennifer Smith, UK

Accommodation was excellent. People were friendly and service was perhaps too excellent. Everything ran smoothly. Myanmar is a wonderful place to visit and full of interest.

Nick Tyldesley, UK


Kenya - Jade Sea Explorer (Group Tour)

For me, this trip to northern Kenya was a real adventure. The section between Marsabit and Maralal was especially exhilarating, driving through desert and semi-desert, past huge rock outcrops and extinct volcanoes, across great spreads of ancient lava, passing almost no other vehicles, and then to see, through the dust, the shimmering expanse of Lake Turkana. with its cratered islands, innumerable birdlife, and grazing zebra and topi. Add to this the range of local groups who survive in so harsh an environment, and you have a really memorable experience.

Chad - Soul of the Sahara (Group Tour)

Wow! Did we go to Africa or to Mars? Incredible landscapes that were not of this world. Fascinating people somehow surviving in the Sahara. The crew was also top notch and made a challenging trip go off like clockwork. A perfect trip for shedding light on a country virtually unknown in the English-speaking world. I want to go back!

Doug Roark, USA

The whole team was excellent, from the guide Andrea to the drivers, cook and mechanic. Absolutely professional, extremely professional, extremely friendly and with a huge knowledge of the country and the conditions.

Nigel Denney, UK


Haiti - Caribbean Treasure (Group Tour)

One of our best trips ever. The Citadel is one of the sights of the world - well worth the adventure of getting there. The quality and variety of the cuisine were an unexpected delight.

Kevin Pardoe and Heather Thompson, UK

Haiti is a hidden gem and they desperately need the support of other travellers. The people were very welcoming and the guides and drivers brilliant.

Jackie Horsewood, UK


Sudan - Kingdom of the Black Pharaohs (Group Tour)

I just wanted to let you know that the tour was way beyond my expectations - in passing, Carla is a real gem! - and to thank you for making special arrangements to accomodate my travel dates. I can hardly wait for my next annual holidays.

Grant Walter, Australia


Comoros - Comoros Discovery

We were very impressed with the tour you planned for us. We wanted to go to trace our family history. We found all of our guides were fully aware of what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go which made our visit really successful. Thank you very much for the organising that went into this.

Lee Brosnahan, NZ


Indonesia - Sulawesi Explorer (Group Tour)

We are now back at home, reflecting on what was undoubtedly the best holiday we have ever enjoyed. From start to finish, it was a truly amazing experience and every day brought with it new wonders and surprises. Nothing went wrong on this tour; absolutely nothing. All accommodation was either good or adequate as expected; no complaints. Guides and drivers were dependable and punctual, in fact they were invariably early.

North Korea – The Hermit Kingdom (Group Tour)

A true 'experience' - one of the most interesting countries I have visited.

Monica Lehman, USA


Oman - From the Desert to the coast (Group Tour)

Our guide was a mine of information. He delighted in taking us not only to places on our itinerary but stopped at many other places of interest along the way.

Jean and Theo Byrne, UK


Uganda - Best of Uganda

Our trip was excellent in every respect.

Christine Blakely, UK

Our local guide and driver were excellent, knowledgeable and always looking to keep us safe and comfortable. Overall this was a fantastic trip. Uganda was beautiful and we saw all we’d hoped to. Seeing gorillas was amazing!

Gerald O’Hanlon, UK


Uzbekistan - The Heart of the Silk Road (Group Tour)

We had a very enjoyable trip. I would like to specifically highlight our guide in Uzbekistan who was very good. The trip was well organised and we wouldn't have any hesitations recommending your company to others.

Ben and Rika Smethers, Japan


Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia - Hidden Europe (Group Tour)

Thanks for your help with putting together our trip to Albania - everything went incredibly smoothly and we felt very taken care of.
