We visited Fiji with Hands up Holidays and had fun and interesting experiences all along the way with everything sorted out and planned for us to enjoy and learn from - and help with as well. Indepth itinerary with a team who invests in and knows what it is about. Saw and did many things that are not normally on the tourist trail.

Chris helped us plan a family trip to Africa and it was a huge success! He secured an itinerary that catered for different ages and encompassed all we were hoping to do and see which has left us with nothing but incredible experiences and memories that we will carry with us for a lifetime. We felt safe, were looked after at every point in our journey by staff and guides, and saw the most amazing sights. As a result, we have Africa etched on our hearts and hope to return one day in the future, and wouldn't hesitate to use Hands Up Holidays again.

I cannot say enough good about Chris and the team at Hands Up Holidays! We have traveled to both Europe and SE Asia on Hands Up Holiday trips and each time was spectacular. Chris is detailed, thorough, and really does his research. The outcome is a trip that is nearly flawless, meaningful, and comfortable. We cannot wait to explore Central America with Hands Up next!

Went on a guided 10 day tour in Japan for the World Cup rugby led by Chris. The trip was organized very well, itinerary was interesting as we got to see many different aspects of Japan. Chris is patience and friendly, I would high recommend going on another tour with him.

Spent ten days in Chris’s hands with a diverse group of people travelling all over Japan watching rugby and visiting the more and less obvious sights; my first experience with Hands Up Holidays. Complex logistics, brilliantly managed, to serve up the time of our lives. And all done with Chris’s trademark unflappability. Don’t know how he does it, but glad he does, and already planning our family holiday next year with Hands Up.....👍

Chris of Hands Up Holiday organised a very interesting and action packed 10 days in Japan during the Rugby World Cup 2019. His attention to detail and great selection of local guides reflected in the huge success of the tour.

What a fantastic trip. Chris made it all work seamlessly which says a lot. Japan is about as confusing place to navigate as you'll encounter. He even made sure that England beat the All Blacks in the World Cup Rugby!
