We were privileged to go where many tourists could not go but some of that was due to the presence of John Pickrell still we saw more and met more senior paleontologists that I had expected. All museums and other sites were a marvelous experience
Your chat-operator was informative and helpful. We have covered quite a few countries and seasons to travel. Full marks for that!
The local guide was outstanding. She had excellent knowledge, helped us shop and went beyond reasonable to give us an authentic experience of Iran.
Overall the trip was great and met my expectation.
Nothing but praise and admiration for our driver David who proved to be an absolute gem. His knowledge, courtesy, professionalism, and leadership was invaluable in making the tour a success.
We found all the guides in each place excellent, some more than others, but always knowledgeable and obviously in love with their chosen careers. David our coach driver was excellent also, coping with some difficult situations with a cool head and providing us with a running commentary on a country he knows so well – especially Norfolk his home county!
…. the itinerary was very attractive and included an interesting and varied list of locations to visit and challenging walks. This was my main reason for booking this tour and for this alone it was quite memorable.
All guides were excellent. Each had done a lot of research on dinosaurs before we arrived and had a good sense of what we were after.
Accommodation exceeded expectations in most cases.
Well balanced with city vs country, visits to remote dinosaur sites, town museums, a winery. The hands-on dinosaur dig and fossil preparation live-in at Lake Barraleas was superb and I could have spent more time there as we went out a lot. It was excellent with a great Argentinian team looking after us..
Well balanced, with a great group leader in John Pickrell. He was extremely informative and had great contacts so we saw behind the scenes at museums.We covered a lot of distance but with 2-3 nights in a number of places had plenty of free time to do your own thing.
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.
Lovely hotel and the location could not have been better. I’d stay there again.

Do you have any comments to make (good or bad!) about your tour Program Leader? – I cannot compliment him too highly
Excellent selection and diversity from different types of events. We saw wonderful things that would not have occurred to me on my own.
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.
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.
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.
