What an exceptional trip this really was. This being my 10th trip away with Exodus, it is definitely one of the best ones (if not the best one!), and if you are reading this review to find out if you should go, don't read any further and book this trip. It really is a trip of a lifetime and Peru has so much to offer.

This is the first trip I have taken with Exodus and couldn't have wished for a better company.Nothing was too much trouble.we started our trip in Lima where we met our wonderful guide for the whole trip.Holgar gave us a. Fascinating tour or downtown Lima telling us all the history and suggested places for meals.there was no obligation to join the group if you didn't wish to do so.the next 3 days were spent in the Amazon and we had 2 more guides to tell us about the jungle.On arrival in the jungle our adventure began.It was dark and wellies were donned for our night walk in the dense jungle where we were introduced to the beautiful insects and sounds .Be prepared for the high humidity and cold showers!There is no electric in the lodges only candle light but it added to the experience!On the second day we were woken up at 3 am to go by boat to see the Macaws which was a beautiful site.the guides Uri and Leo were very helpful and knew lots of info about the jungle.On day 3 I had a little accident which resulted in an injury on my toe.This required medical attention once back in Cusco.Holgar was extremely helpful in arranging this and handled the situation well.After our jungle adventure it was on to Cusco where you need to take it easy and acclimatise.Its a beautiful city with lots to see.again Holgar recommended a lovely restaurant.After 2 days in Cusco we were all getting prepared for the Inca trail.It is tough and you need to be fit especially for the second day climbing up to 4,200 metres up to Dead woman's pass.We had 2 guides on our trek one at the fro t and Monica who stayed at the back.the walk was taken steadily and there were lots of rest breaks on the way.Monica was fantastic as I struggled with the steps going down to camp on the second day and she even stopped to give me a massage on my legs !id certainly recommend using poles as I couldn't do it without them.On day 3 we walked on the original Inca steps going down 1,000 metres which is hard if you have dodgy knees.the whole experience was amazing and the scenery was jaw dropping.On reaching the sun gate and seeing Machu Picchu for the first time was quite an emotional experience knowing you reached the end and seeing the site was amazing.Our group decided to stay in an hotel for the last night instead of camping for a much needed shower although I surprisingly enjoyed the camping.the porters and chefs were wonderful and food was like Michelin star!for the last part of our trip we visited Puno and Lake Titicaca for our home stay.the people and the islands were beautiful .The homestay was an humbling experience .there were 4 of us who stayed in Floras house and she made us feel most welcome and I felt like I'd made a friend at the end of it.The whole holiday was like 3 different holidays in one and I really enjoyed all the different experiences.the only fault I could find was all the tipping as we were encouraged to tip all the many guides ,drivers boat men ,cooks and porters.I think this should be taken out in the cost of the holiday as it can be embarrassing if you find you are short of money.Overall the trip was amazing and Exodus had got it just right.Be prepared for lots of early starts and lots of travelling but it was wort it. We will have lots of happy memories for years to come!

What an amazing trip! I'd spoken with a friend who'd done this very trip a few years ago but, even still, it exceeded all my expectations. We hardly stopped the whole time but we had a great group and everyone got on really well. So many highlights that it's difficult to pick out anything in particular.

Fantastic Experience!

A fantastic trip. Very well organised throughout, and it felt like the trip managed to fit a lot in. We were lucky to have Carlos as our group leader and a really fun group. The jungle trip was amazing, and Frank was an excellent local guide who made it a really fun time. The Inca trail was a great experience, fantastic scenery throughout and a real sense of history.

A dream come true! This trip was everything I imagined and more. With a great leadership from Wilbert and a fun supportive group of people, this truly was a trip of a lifetime. From the rainforest wildlife, to the challenge of the Inka Trail and experience of the local life, this is a journey packed full of adventure, amazing scenery and fun.

Fantastic Peru - Inca Trail and Amazon

5
We were lucky enough to have Wilbert as our tour leader who looked after our group with a great deal of patience and humour. His local knowledge was fantastic and organisational skills excellent and he was a brilliant ambassador for Peru. He was really concerned that we all had a great time. We were lucky with the weather and were able to get to the mud lick to see the macaws. That and seeing a sloth within a few feet of us on our canoes were the highlight of the Amazon stay. The Inca trail was hard but manageable, Carlos being an excellent local guide. Scenery amazing, and a real sense of achievement getting to the Sun Gate. Home stay was charming with genuinely friendly families.

Exodus Response

We were sorry to learn that this traveller was so disappointed with her tour leader as we take great pride in our leaders and this is not normally the type of feedback that we receive. We have followed up on the feedback with our local manager and are confident that clients will have a better experience going forward. We remain sorry, however, that this client’s first experience of travelling with us was not more positive.
