World Reviewer is all about finding inspiration for your next holiday. We've gathered together hundreds of the world's top travel experts to recommend the best holiday ideas and travel experiences all over the world; and to help you get to them, we've made a comprehensive list of all the best travel companies and specialists too. From trekking in the Himalaya to a cooking course in Tuscany, from whale watching in the Azores to ballooning in Namibia, World Reviewer is creating the best range of experiential travel on the web.

Who are we? I'm Jamie Dunford Wood, an ex-tour guide with over 25 years experience in travel and over 10 years experience online, since founding Travel Intelligence ( with journalist AA Gill in 1999. My team includes Dr Alastair James, a PhD in computer science based in Brighton, Hugh Graham-Watson and his sales team based in Scotland, and Kat Mackintosh, our editor in London. Our Chairman, publisher James Blackwell, is based in Norfolk. We launched World Reviewer in October 2007.

Between us we've travelled to the far corners of the globe, from Afghanistan to Argentina, from Tahiti to Baku. We believe the experience of finding ideas and planning your holiday online should be fun, which is why we are using the latest technology – thousands of stunning flickr images, the latest google mapping, videos imported from YouTube and Geobeats, and fun tools like our weather map, or our ‘experience of the day’.

World Reviewer aims to be:

  • Inspirational

  • Visually appealing
  • Simple to use
  • Practically useful
  • Technologically savvy

So please let us know what you think – what you like, what you don’t like, and where you think we can improve. And if you use us to plan your next trip, please tell us how you got on by adding your reviews and recommendations to the site.

Happy travels!
