Edinburgh Fringe Festival small group for Mature travellers

Great hotel (perfect location), wonderful tour guide (Robert was excellent in every respect), the half-day walking tour was fun and informative, and the events selected exposed me to Fringe events I probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Very well thought out and put together.

Excellent selection and diversity from different types of events. We saw wonderful things that would not have occurred to me on my own.

Turkey small escorted seniors group must see affordable history Tour

We felt safe in Turkey and found the people friendly and helpful. Prices were excellent and the food almost universally magnificent. There is so much to see in the natural and built environment and the wonderful archaeological sites. It is sad to see the ordinary people and businesses suffering from the lack of tourists.

The country was apparently calm and safe. People were friendly and helpful. Such a pity there has been such a down turn in tourism.

Our guide Filiz was wonderful, very well informed, historical insights very helpful, her care for our well being exceptional. Could not have wished for a better tour leader.

Anglo French - France, Channel Islands and England small group history tour

I was impressed by the number of places we visited. It was a very full itinerary which I like. We saw things of interest every day. I see no fault with the tour.

Iceland — a cultural and wilderness small group tour

The geographical wonders offered by Iceland and Greenland left me in awe. The grandeur and spectacle of the countryside is breathtaking. Our leader (Rob) was excellent: well-researched, friendly, organized and good-humoured.

Britain's History through its Canals and Railways — small group tours

Wife Brenda and I just completed Odyssey tour in UK entitled “Canals and Railways” led by Mal Bock.

Absolutely superb, and Mal’s leadership faultless. Extremely good value considering only seven guests, superb local guides and drivers, a most comfortable coach with seating for 24. . Hotels chosen were excellent, most with real character, not places one would have chosen without local knowledge and recommendation, . My wife and I have visited the UK many times- I was born there, but we saw so many places which were new to us. Thank you Odyssey!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prehistoric Britain small group history tour including standing stones

Excellent itinerary, transport and local guides!

Iceland — a cultural and wilderness small group tour

It is hard to believe that such a small country can contain so much dramatic scenery. Icecaps and glaciers, huge waterfalls, volcanos and hot bubbling mud, and those wonderful fjords and high mountain passes

Iceland — a cultural and wilderness small group tour

Our guide was a great ambassador for his country, wide knowledge of literature, history, customs, industry, fishing – also a perceptive and sensitive person who inter-acted so willingly with all of us!

Iceland — a cultural and wilderness small group tour

Every day was different with so much to see and do. Volcanoes, craters (including the pseudo ones), bubbling mud pools, and the active Strokkur Geyser, the bird life, black sand beaches, and those beautiful Icelandic horses. The time flew by…

Iceland — a cultural and wilderness small group tour

I loved this trip as it was so very different from anywhere else I’ve been. The scenery was breath-taking and I never imagined I’d be taken on a cruise around a lagoon filled with icebergs, or see so many magnificent waterfalls that I lost count.

Islands of Scotland and Shetland specialist tour for mature travellers

Our driver and guide was exceptional; full of information about places we visited. Resourceful when we had extra time, in organising ‘wee adventures’. Diverted several times to accommodate the special interests of group members.

Islands of Scotland and Shetland specialist tour for mature travellers

We were more than satisfied with the whole trip. Enjoyed every bit of it. If you could improve the weather it’d be nice, but even the cold, rain and wind couldn’t spoil the trip.

I really enjoyed this tour. I found all of our drivers/guides were friendly, organised, professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to others.

Heritage, culture, history of Italy, group tours for mature travellers

One of my most pleasurable holidays, and one I must repeat, as it was not long enough. We were most fortunate in having our marvellous tour leader.

Bhutan points of interest small group cultural festival tours

The trip to the Tang valley and the Ogyencholing museum were a highlight. Beautiful scenery, wonderful people and one of the best museums I’ve seen. That night and all next day it snowed – what a buzz. Made everything look magical and improved the scenery for the next few days
