Inca Magic

From the moment that l looked at your website, to the day l arrived home at Melbourne Airport, my passion for life has been ‘rejuvenated’ thanks to you all. Accommodation was again perfect for the type of holiday we were having. We were so well fed and looked after, even the beds were comfortable in each Hotel we stayed in!!

Congratulations for the amazing effort that you have all put in. Everything was so finely tuned, so that we could enjoy a wild and wonderful time in a foreign country.

For the ultimate relaxing adventure holiday, sail the coral reefs in the translucent waters of the Maldives with a Maldives Dhoni Cruise. If you have never sailed before our crew will assist you 'setting the sails'. During the day there is ample time to swim and snorkel, enjoy the marine life and cruise between the coral islands, while at night we moor off remote islands with small settlements, a world away from the resorts.   More on Maldives Sailing Holidays

Sri Lanka – Cycling Adventures

Sri Lanka is a land of misty highlands and tea plantations, dense jungles and National Parks that are ideally suited to cycle touring on our Sri Lanka by Bike.  Beginning our journey along the palm fringed west coast, we cycle inland deep into the rain forest of central Sri Lanka before continuing to the pretty hill town of Kandy with its splendid botanical gardens. We continue to the rock fortress of Sigiriya and then Polonnaruwa - the medieval capital of Sri Lanka.   More Sri Lanka Holidays and Vacations
