A holiday overflowing with amazing memories

It was with a little trepidation that I set off with my wife to Ho Chi Minh City to begin a two week cycling holiday in Vietnam. Fears were quickly dispelled as we met Chi, our guide, and our fellow cyclists. From Day 1 it was fairly obvious our group was going to get on and so it proved. A age range from 23 to 68 didn't create any issues, we were all reasonably fit and shared an outgoing sense of fun and adventure. There were even a few tears as we all parted company in Hanoi having enjoyed an adventure together which will live long in our memories.

A great Grand Tour!

Genuinely a Grand Tour, giving the opportunity not just to see some truly World-Class sights but also to have a really good introduction to the cultures and peoples of this fascinating region. The itinerary is packed for most of the 4 weeks, but with sufficient opportunities to kick back and re-charge your batteries. That said, those with the stamina may prefer to take up some of the many optional goodies available during “free” time. The local guides were good at laying out options that previous Exodus people had enjoyed, but also had the contacts to help sort out things on request. Best beaches, bars, restaurants, museums, cookery schools – something for everyone. So, everyone had a great time, gained as much education as they wanted, saw and experienced things they may never see again. Lots of “wow!” Particular highlights for me included kayaking in Ha Long Bay, a morning’s cycle through the Vietnam countryside to a bustling local market, a splendid Lao cooking course by the Mekong in Luang Prabang and roaming around the ruins in Angkor, finding places where there were no other tourists, at least for some of the time. Oh, and the umpteen methods of transport we used, including hair-raising but fun cyclo-taxi rides through the madcap traffic in Hanoi and Saigon. I was really pleased with the way that Exodus handled issues arising from visiting a region so recently devastated by war and the insanity of Pol Pot’s regime. Visits like the Genocide Memorial in Cambodia and museums of the Vietnam war can feel like an unpleasant form of voyeurism. Exodus helped us handle any misgivings by providing opportunities to direct some of our tourist dollars straight to the people that need it the most. Connections were made with restaurants, factories and charities that employed or supported victims. These were voluntary and none was awkward or intrusive, but made us feel we had been able to make a positive difference. A few practical points, based on a trip Jan/Feb 2015. To get the most from the tour itself, you will want to take up most of the optional extra activities, so if you have the time and money, consider adding a few days to acclimatise before the trip and/or to relax at the end. As always, pack as light as you can. It is cheap and reliable to get clothes washed at many points along the way. And don’t bother taking your own cycle helmet as good quality ones were available at no extra cost for the organised ride. Tempted? Then do go as soon as you can! Huge investments in tourism are being made throughout the area, so try to get there before it changes too much. Our group covered a wide range of ages, couples and singles, most well-travelled – and all agreed it to be one of the very best!

Cape Town and the Garden Route

We first travelled to South Africa three years ago, and fell in love with it. This year we wanted to concentrate on the Garden Route rather than the big National Parks. This was the ideal trip.

Classic Kenya Safari

This was the first time I'd used Exodus and also my first time visiting Kenya and let me tell you, it was brilliant. I had an amazing time. I loved the week away from start to finish. The trip was well organised and having met such helpful, polite people along the way it ticked all my boxes. I met a lovely group of people who were also single travellers so that helped. The Food was excellent and I enjoyed trying new things. The rooms at both hotels were always clean and well maintained. You could not fault the staff. Every ask was not a problem. There is a bit of traveling and on some bad roads but apart from that, this is a trip I would return on again and again. Thank you Exodus and everyone I met!!

Trekking to Thyangboche, Everest Basecamp trek, Nepal

Everest Base Camp January 2015

A truly fantastic trip to a beautiful part of the world. The extreme cold at night was manageable with a good sleeping bag supplemented by blankets/duvets provided by the teahouses and was compensated for by the fact that the trail was quiet, though by no means empty. Daytime temperatures were fine and at all but the highest altitudes we were normally walking in a baselayer and fleece by mid-morning. It was, however, very cold once the sun went down, although the teahouses did have stoves in their common rooms. In some, there was no running water and the squat toilet had to be flushed by bailing with a jug out of a barrel, having first broken the ice! But we soon got used to this and the benefits of clear days, a quite trail and stunning views more than made up for any hardship.

Temples, Tortillas and Tequila

Take 3 Canadians, 14 Brits and a Geordie, give them all a decent bike, an excellent guide with a passion for Mayan culture, perfect blue sky and sunshine and a wonderfully varied schedule of cycling, sightseeing, eating, drinking and relaxing, and the result? An unforgettable trip that we would all happily do all over again.
