A wonderful trip. The forest lodges were amazing, the treks through the rainforest really got us, up close and personal with the forest surrounded by all the forest noises. the boat trips along the forest rivers allowed us to see the wild life, at home, and not bothered by the boats. The climb up Kinabalu was relentless but, gave a sense of achievement at the summit and a sense of relief whwn down again

South India Explored

What a fantastic trip, my third trip with Exodus and as usual, they delivered exactly the product expected, a full and vibrant tour round southern, India. This trip is rated leisurely and is correctly labelled, even though the days are full and long. We were transported in very comfortably air conditioned coach, which turned out to be essential, as the heat was oppressive and exhausting. The only thing about the trip was oit was very hot in the cities, especially Cochin. Out of choice I would have liked to have gone in January, but I was too late to book. The heat melted us, when we were out and about, especially in the temples. The trip was hugely varied and interesting, there was something for everyone. The food was great and the selection of restaurants, recommended by the excellent guide Santo James was excellent. He tried very hard to accommodate all our needs, it's difficult to please all the people all the time.! All the logistics of the travel worked, on time and correct. Very well organised and efficient. The trip was excellent value for money. The only point I would like to make is there are lots of extra activities, which were all excellent, but not necessarily budgeted for. It may be worth saying if you do all the extras you need to allow an extra £300 plus. The restaurants were excellent but I personally spent more than the recommended budget, as huge prawns and lobster do add to the cost! But the quality is fantastic. It is worth mentioning though that the food overall was very cheap and you can eat very cheaply in India. If food is important then this is a great trip, by the way the night of the lobster was only £16 including extras and wine, which is expensive in India, but good quality. Fabulously ornate temples, with a back drop of verdant plantations, backwaters of Kerala, beautiful beach at Kovollam, Chinese fishing nets, cookery class, Katakala! It was all so diverse. Fab!

Cuban Highlights Ride

Wonderful country and people

5
Cycling in Cuba sounds like a great trip but it was a bit of a leap in the dark in many ways for me and my wife. However the trip was a great success on every level! The bikes were really good, much better than the ones we trained on at home. Las, the tour guide was also ideal, informative, funny and resourceful - and he needed to be sometimes as in Cuba things don't always run to plan but he managed to make this part of the fun. Gear, (never really sure about his name), was great as our super-fit support cyclist who kept an eye on us when we were cycling and was always there for anyone struggling for any reason. Edwardo the driver was always where he needed to be and the converted coach carrying the bikes and us to our next start point was very comfortable. The great thing was never having to worry as the travel, support, hotels and meals were all well organised so all we had to do was enjoy the scenery and the wonderful Cuban people. They ultimately made the trip so good as they are polite, friendly, entertaining and most of all fun! Having a good time seems to be ingrained in the culture so a few Salsa lessons before the holiday are recommended.

Petra & Wadi Rum by Bike

Petra and Wadi Rum by Bike

Completing Petra and Wadi Rum by bike confirmed to me that age is no barrier to adventure. The route inspired awe for Jordans’ natural beauty and built wonders; our guides and the local people made the trip memorable by freely sharing their knowledge and hospitality. At any age you can appreciate the smooth organaisation experienced from booking the holiday throughout the trip right to the final transfer to the airport. No question was too difficult; nothing was too much trouble. I was so impressed that I am already considering my next trip with Exodus. Regards Stuart Browett. Thanks again for a fantastic holiday.

I think that we were very lucky to have 12 Tiger sightings, this exceeded our expectations, other groups may not be as fortunate. India has an abundance of other wildlife and so many birds, the 3 game parks we visited were all totally different landscapes, the countryside was surprisingly green. The entire tour was brilliant, the group got along very well together and added to the sucess of the trip.

Not quite the 'leisurely' trip advertised. With hindsight, there was too much done in too short a time, for our expectation, which left too little time for relaxation and reflection. Having said that, we collected many wonderful experiences and saw some beautiful and interesting sights.

The Inca Trail

Run out of Superlatives - Fantastic - what else can I say!

5
This was the first time we've been on an Adventure holiday and the first time that we've ever used Exodus. Superb communication and assistance from Exodus HQ throughout, from booking to arriving home. The customer service and assistance we've received from this company is genuinely the best I've ever experienced, even when flights home went slightly awry due to bad weather! The trip itself exceeded all our expectations - by a long way! As first-time 'Adventure Travelers', we were a little apprehensive about what we might have signed up to, but the user reviews on the website and the patience of Harriet at Exodus in answering some rather inane questions quickly put these to rest. Don't just think about it, do it, you won't regret it! Yes, you could fly to Cusco and get the train up to Machu Picchu, but you won't truly appreciate this amazing place unless you've walked the trail and understand just how remote it would have been back in the day together with why the Incas thought of it a such a special place. You would also miss out on many other stunning ruins that cannot be reached any other way, incredible wildlife, the physical challenge and the chance to be humbled by the amazingly quiet, resilient and proud Quechua people, many of whom make up the porters and crew that care for you on your trip and make your dreams come true. Machu Picchu is a very special place, Cusco is charming and the Peruvian countryside stunning, but the most precious thing that my wife and I have taken away from our trip is a sense of profound respect and fondness for the Peruvian people and the Quechua in particular.
