Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was wonderful, thanks! The local operator, Coast to Coast, were very well organised and especially Danny, the lead guide, was the best guide I have ever seen in action. It was a privilege to be guided by such a well-rounded and versatile person - from navigating and motivating the group, to cooking (delicious food) and patching up blisters. And always with a smile on his face.

I am already planning my next trip with World Expeditions - rafting on the Franklin River in Tasmania.

Cork Coast Cycle

Quiet roads lined with wild, deeply scented flowers, plunging coastline and rural landscapes, this tour encapsulates the essence of southern Ireland, from rolling green fields to spectacular coastal rides. West Cork is also best known for its colourful villages all of which are brightly painted in a wonderful array of vibrant colours, with hanging baskets brimming with flowers out the front of every pub and shop. This is the more cosmopolitan part of rural Ireland with many choosing to settle in this idyllic setting. After a visit to the colourful town of Kinsale, where artists mingle with fishermen, the cycle route heads back to Cork for a final evening. Staying in specially handpicked B&Bs and Inns, the trip offers a full Irish cultural experience.
