CRUISING WITH CUNARD QE 2 to Japan ITS REALLY HARD to be too critical of the crew and staff as by and large they mostly tried really hard to please most people . this was qe2 s 1st trip to japan of 28 days across the PACIFIC through GUAM and NEW GUINEA . we went Britannia Club , but dined at The normal Britannia because we travelled with friends who went Britannia only , although we have travelled IN grills class . food was good , not always hot occasionally rushed service but they tried hard again . hard to serve 2000 people in a few hours I guess . BUFFET WAS BUFFET , hard to make it elegant dinning or even civilized , as people tend to go strange around food buffets . SEATS WERE A PREMIUM AT PEAK TIMES in the buffet . GRILLS class is another thing , way better , so is the cost way higher . worst thing about the cruise was the cost of drinks and addons . exchange rate for Aussies is savage and too high after conversion and service fee . too many sea days on this trip from SYDNEY but we knew it before hand . shops on ship were disappointing from comparison with past cruises and poorly stoked with clothing and with very limited stock and sizes , cant say for the jewelry or perfumes but looked ok to me but again prices seemed really high on some items . excursions were a bit disappointing with japanese tour guides had limited english communication although the japanese people are just terrific and try so hard TO PLEASE . again costs were very high when getting only 80 yen to the aussie dollar . us dollar is 140 yen to the A$.............so for AMERICANS and BRITISH travellers its much cheaper . i am already booked again on the QE2 NEXT YEAR BUT QUEENS GRILL and much shorter journey

From Bwindi Gorillas to Spices of Zanzibar - Amazing! Richard was excellent in helping us plan the trip and making changes when needed/wanted. We added 2 days in Zanzibar to relax after the safari, which he arranged. All the guides were knowledgeable, friendly and patient - and were excellent in avoiding potholes when at all possible! Each area had its own beauty and awe inspiring views of animals. The gorilla trek was not for the faint of heart, and getting to see these magnificent creatures was amazing - and startling, when the large male stood and bellowed at us! The first animal in Kenya we spied was a cheetah, just lounging under some bushes. And it only got better. The most memorable experience was watching a herd of elephants play in the mud after a rain, blocking the road for at least 30 minutes! The guides would stop when requested, and when they spotted something interesting/photogenic. The lodges/camps were more than we expected with very helpful staff. I definitely recommend Inspire African Safaris to anyone planning a safari.

Best Experience Ever We went on a 10 day trip that covered five national parks. Beginning with the booking experience, Joseph was very helpful, answering all our questions in a kind and complete manner. Herman was our superb guide, providing timely information, keeping us on schedule, was very patient as well as we took our photos, what a wonderful guide he was. The lodges were our style; very comfortable, well located,wonderful and attractive staff. Uganda is a land of beauty, with gentle and kind people. Inspire African Safaris allowed us to experience it.

Memorable trip I was a solo male traveler and a bit anxious to go on a trip by myself. Joseph made me feel so comfortable and it was such an amazing time! He gave me so many options of things to do and tailored the trip to what I was really interested in. It was absolutely amazing and I couldn't recommend this trip enough! If you're thinking about going with this tour company, don't hesitate! It will be the most amazing trip!

Unforgottable safaris The greatness of the trip comes with the best tour operator and the best guides, all this was found within Inspire African Safaris that made me experience the best stay in Uganda, it was all fan for my trip. I was 6am in the morning when my guide herman picked from the hotel to set off to Kabale, the 5hour drive , on my way we made several stopovers to buy fish and children, experiencing the beauty and landscape of Kabale, it really great and fan. We reached Kabale at around 3pm , At Kabale Resort,its where i got my rest and refreshing for the whole night.The following day, we woke up at 6am ,prepared and had breakfast and set off for a nature walk around the lake Bunyonyi, in the evening we had a boat cruise on lake Bunyonyi and sailed to the punishment Island. It was all fan and this will remain unforgottable.

Great primates Experience The trip was amazing, I must say we really enjoyed the Safari.. Richard our guide was so amazing, the food was marvelous, the lodges clean and on point, some point was some minutes late but that was not a issue as it was raining almost half of our trip and we know things can get messy, but generally everything was so perfect beyond our expectations, maybe what everyone didn’t appreciate was the chimps trek at kibale, the people were many and our group was splint, some of our friends saw only 2 chimps and so high trees they couldn’t even take pictures, and others saw few chimps and it was a rainy day, anyways we experienced the rain forest though we felt bad afterwards we met some guys at the lodge who were coming from CK and they had tracked at a reserve on Budongo who saw over 30 chimps and had over 2hrs with chimps, otherwise the gorilla trek was amazing and the rest of the trip, we loved Richard’s driving skills and the constant communication, we will come back again and thank you Richard and your team at inspire
