North West Passage

I thought that this trip looked exciting. I realised before I went that there was a lot of ice at the earlier part of the route. This meant that our tour started from Resolute Bay rather than Cambridge Bay, which was initially disappointing, as I was interested in the Franklin expedition and would have liked to see where it had been. However, it did mean that we had more time in the Lancaster Strait area which is wonderful for wildlife. We saw about 20 polar bears, gyrfalcon, snowy owl, distant narwal and muskoxen and two breathtaking pods of Orcas (killer whales). We had an interesting talk by the CEO of the Victoria Strait Expedition, which was then taking place, and although we were told that no trace of Franklin's ships had been found, we later heard that one HAD been found.

Coastal views en route to Eze Village, France

Walking the French Riviera

We are both keen walkers and this holiday fully lived up to its expectations. A good mixture of coastal and mountain walking. Spectacular views every day. Menton is a great location from which to walk, being on the coast and just under the Alps. It is an attractive resort with lots to see and do outside walking time, e.g. gardens, museums, old quarter, churches and of course, the beach and marina. Made all the more enjoyable by fantastic weather!

Kayaks on the beach, Turkey
Review posted by Roger Dunn
***** Written

Vigorous, enthralling and magnificent

Travelled from Gatwick to Dalaman, Picked up outside airport (cash machine just outside airport) by Exodus rep and taken to KAS. (2+hours but with a lovely stop off half way) Hotel Oreo is fine (for Turkey) pool, AC in room, wifi, great staff (English so so - better that my Turkish!) Welcome bar-b-que was very good and set the standard for the week. Rep/guide was ours for the week and kept us upto date at all times. Kas is lovely, go explore the back streets, well worth the effort, food choices if fantastic, prices are low. Kayaking is hard work! Kayaks are touring type and stable but you can fall out! take dry bay, gloves, hat sun cream, and long sleeves - no shade in a kayak! Included meals are great, If you pay its around 30lira for a meal plus drinks, almost OD'd on fish - it's really good! After day two you'll be Kayak shaped and it gets much easier, gloves can come off!? expect to see Turtles day 3 onward, The move to the pension at Kekova is short and the Pension is great, massive rooms with AC and wifi, in a really small village, just lovely and peaceful, it has around 10 restaurants (all sell the same!) and the best bit is the paddling there, sheltered and beautiful. Lots of Turtles, fish squid etc. Take a mask and snorklel!! The Guides are great but listen to the advice especially getting into and out of the kayaks. We had a guy who didn't use his paddle to support the boat, fell on to a rock with his ribs (ouch) totally unnecessary. Both days at end of week are fantastic., early 3 are very good but, you know what I mean. Turkish bath and para gliding both recommended, if your male to the berber for a hair cut and shave! A great experience!

Walking the Great Wall

Generally excellent. The surroundings are in themselves inspirational and Exodus promises were usually delivered. Accommodation generally of a higher standard than we had been led to expect.

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Cape Town to Victoria Falls Reverse Lodges

Loved it. A hard overland journey, not for softies, but full of interest. Long days over often rough roads but with ever-changing landscape. There are several 2 night stops and swimming pools almost everywhere. We got close to animals - the big 5 (including the Black and the White rhino) plus leopard, hyena, wild dogs (rare indeed), crocodiles and lots of hippos. Zebra, giraffe, impala of all kinds, ostriches, crocodiles, colourful birds and a poisonous (and enormous) hairy black scorpion at Fish River canyon. Southern Right Whales off Cape Point in S. Africa and the lovely penquins nearby were the icing on the cake.

Cycle Kerala and Tropical India

Cycling is the perfect way to experience the colours, sights, sounds, and smells of this beautiful part of India. Wonderful variety of cycling, scenery, wild life, culture and people. Fabulous food, great company and something new every day.

Via Ferrata, Italy
Review posted by Maia Forrester
***** Written

Be prepared for all weathers

The Dolomites area of Italy is just beautiful and it was really lovely to be there. It is important that people signing up to this trip are prepared for a wide variety of experiences, since doing the Via Ferrata was much more weather dependent than I had appreciated. I had expected that rain and low cloud would not have prevented us from doing the Via Ferrata routes, simply that the experience would have been a bit damp and with reduced views. Unfortunately, non-optimal weather completely ruled out doing Via Ferrata routes for about half of our trip. On those days we went for walks instead. On those days we did see some incredible historic sites where there had been trench warfare on the hilltops, which we perhaps wouldn't have seen otherwise, however this was not an eventuality I had anticipated and I was really disappointed not to be able to do much of the Via Ferrata planned. I think it would be better to include this information in the Trip Notes, ie that weather may mitigate entirely against doing the Via Ferrate, so peoples' expectations are set an an appropriate level. It would also help if there was a 'Plan B' in place for such times because I think that the days when we didn't do the Via Ferrata would have felt better spend if we had been engaging in a pre-planned 'Plan B', rather than playing things by ear on a 2-3 hourly basis during those days.
