Falling for New England
Changing leaves, wildlife, apple cider – the fall season is in full swing across the pond.
And nowhere does autumn better than these north-eastern states. Traditional clapboard houses are decorated with autumnal wreaths, with displays of pumpkins and squash on front porches. Farmers take advantage of bumper fruit harvests, churning out deliciously sweet ciders, apple doughnuts and cranberry chutneys. Forests of beech and maple turn glorious shades of red, gold and orange – and if you look closely, you might spot a few wild local residents (squirrels, birdlife and perhaps even a moose or two).
It’s a beautiful region to explore at this time of year – our ‘Best of New England in the Fall’ tour spotlights some of the prettiest parts. We’ll start and end in Boston, journeying in a loop that takes in Cape Cod, Mystic, Woodstock, the White Mountains and much more. Along the way, we’ll enjoy maple syrup tastings, visits to charming historic towns and, of course, plenty of stops to admire the fall foliage.
13 days from £2,849pp
Travelling through five states, soak up postcard-worthy views at every turn, from historic lighthouses and steeple-topped churches, to wooden covered bridges and rows of classic clapboard houses.

Just one photo can bring memories of your holiday flooding back. A spectacular photo can capture the mood of a whole destination. If you love photography, here are our favourite destinations in the world for keeping your lens busy, from mighty sand dunes and stunning landscapes to quirky wildlife.
As you stand in the clouds above Machu Picchu, take in the detail and texture below, the dramatic mountains and the changing light. Our tip is to go in low season and enter the citadel at the end of the day as it empties to get the best pictures, minus the crowds.
The Galapagos Islands
No place in the world is better for taking pictures of wildlife. The islands are home to hordes of endemic species, such as the sun-basking marine iguana. We highly recommend taking a GoPro to capture underwater footage – the sealions can be very playful!
One of Saint Lucia's most iconic sights, the emerald-coloured Twin Pitons are volcanic plugs rising from the coast, creating a dramatic backdrop to the town of Soufriere. Stay at Jade Mountain and your open-air suite will have the perfect view of the Pitons from your private pool.
Epic dunes; cheetahs roaming through national parks; and decaying shipwrecks buried in the sand on the Skeleton Coast – Namibia is full of camera-worthy opportunities. One of our favourites is the eerie petrified forest, where scorched trees contrast against orange sand and blue skies.
The energy and relentless pace of Hanoi is intoxicating. One of the best spots to capture snaps of the traffic is from the City View Café, which overlooks one of the busiest intersections on the edge of the Old Quarter. It's chaotic - but brilliant - especially at night.
Rajasthan is a photographer's dream, home to the famous pink city of Jaipur, the stunning Thar Desert and the majestic Bengal Tigers of Ranthambore National Park. Holi, the 'festival of colour' is spectacular to photograph – but beware of flying coloured powder and your camera!

Discovering a new destination and delving into what makes it so special is one of the most exciting experiences imaginable. We bring you a collection of our holidays featuring the hottest and trendiest destinations for 2018.
The sun-soaked Mediterranean island of Malta boasts a glorious history and its 16th-century citadel capital, the UNESCO World Heritage city of Valletta, built by the Knights of St John both as a fortress and a spectacular architectural celebration, is one of the European Capitals of Culture in 2018.
In 2008, Liverpool reigned as the European Capital of Culture making it the 'must see' destination in the UK. For 2018, Liverpool has launched an '18 for 2018' campaign showcasing the city’s culture, heritage, UNESCO-listed icons and award-winning exhibitions, which also includes the Terracotta Warriors returning to the UK shores after 10 years at Liverpool's World Museum.
With its incomparable wildlife and unique wild places, Botswana continues to lure visitors. The Okavango Delta is like no other, a pristine wetland paradise while the Chobe River region is famed for its dense concentration of breathtaking wildlife and safari adventures. And, as it's set to be a big year for Prince Harry, Botswana will be the hot topic of many conversations as this was where he camped out under the stars with Meghan Markle and a country that has been close to his heart since he visited at the age of 13.
Nashville, Tennessee, USA
A lucrative part of the America's musical playground, Nashville is the Country Music Capital of the World. Home to the Country Music Hall of Fame, it’s also renowned for the Grand Ole Opry, America's longest-running scheduled show (it’s never missed a Saturday performance since it was first broadcast on radio in 1925!). And for those looking to delve deeper into the Southern music scene, Nashville can be the perfect start point for a classic road trip to Elvis Presley’s Memphis and ‘The Big Easy’, New Orleans.
Located off Ecuador’s coast, the Galapagos Islands are an archipelago home to colourful crabs, swimming lizards, penguins, blue-footed boobies, and the famed giant tortoises. These are the islands visited by the young Charles Darwin in 1835, and inspired him to write and publish his 'On the Origin of Species' theory of evolution. 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Galapagos being managed as a national park and 40 years since it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast
Tourism is on the up again with more visitors flocking to the turquoise coasts, ancient cities and picture-perfect fishing villages. There is no better time or place to discover the exotic blend of eastern and western cultures.
