ABTA Atol
Hungary Map
Why I Love Hungary
I love Hungary because you can combine the faded romance of its capital city with the beautiful countryside outside it. For a taste of local life, I loved playing chess at the Turkish era thermal baths in Budapest.

Serbia Map
Why I Love Serbia
The Roman site of Viminacium in Serbia never fails to impress me. This grand capital of the ancient Roman province Moesia is located 12 kilometres from Požarevac. They have recently built a small hotel here and for the time team enthusiasts out there you can even work alongside the archaeologists. There is always something new to see on every visit as the excavation is an ongoing process.

China Map
Why I Love China
The sheer variety of cultures and landscapes in China never fails to enthrall. I love uncovering the history of the ancient dynasties and, such is the vastness and depth of the country, there is always something unexpected to discover. Our China Holidays allow to you enjoy the best of this country in a variety of ways.

Germany Map
Why I Love Germany
For me, Berlin makes the perfect city break destination – the restaurants and cafes in the fashionable Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg neighbourhoods are the ideal place to watch the world go by after a busy day of sightseeing.
Staff
Poland Map
Why I Love Poland
Poland is an extremely spirited country and there is a real sense of community and pride amongst its people, perhaps best exemplified by the meticulously rebuilt Old Town in Warsaw which was devastated in World War II. This positive, forward-looking attitude translates into the warm welcome that I find on every visit.

Laos Map
Why I Love Laos
I love the atmospheric city of Luang Prabang - Laos’ spiritual heart. The aroma of fresh coffee mixed with delicious spices hangs in the air, whilst the combination of French Colonial architecture and golden-roofed Buddhist temples brings splashes of colour to the streets. The mighty Mekong is the lifeblood of the city – take a boat trip and glide past the villages, monasteries and wats that line the riverbank.

Slovenia Map
Why I Love Slovenia
I love Slovenia holidays because they truly have it all! In this green and pleasant land you can find scenic lakes, beautiful mountains and attractive coastline all within a couple of hours’ drive of each other. The number of activities you can fit into a short trip here is tremendous.

Bulgaria Map
Why I Love Bulgaria
Bulgaria is beautiful through and through. Starting from the rugged Black Sea coast you can head in land and discover nothing but breathtaking scenery and magnificent national parks. In Sofia, head to the Central Market to pick up some local bread and cheeses for the perfect picnic.

Kosovo Map
Why I Love Kosovo
There is so much to see and do in Kosovo – the Decani Monastery, stunning Rugova Gorge, private family wineries, exploring Prizren Old Town and paying your respects at Prekaz village: the list goes on! Don’t forget to have a Kosovan fish banquet (fish prepared in six different ways) in Trofta trout farm near Istog.

Cambodia Map
Why I Love Cambodia
The incredible Khmer temple complex at Angkor is undoubtedly the highlight of any of our Cambodia holidays. The sheer scale of the site combined with the iconic silhouette of the lotus bud-shaped towers and the wonderful bas-relief decoration which has survived since the 12th century make this a very special place to visit.
