Fisherman on the banks of the Ganges River at sunset, Varanasi, India

Better and worse than I could have imagined

This was an incredible trip in two amazing countries. It has left me some of the best memories of any trip I have taken, but at times it felt like an endurance test not a holiday. India in the depth of winter is only for the very brave - particularly on a trip that involves so much road travel and uses buses that are so poorly equipped. If you want a challenge not a rest and are happy to accept that the prize for seeing some of the most amazing sights in the world is struggling to breath in dense smog and wondering if you would make it to your next destination alive - then this is a great choice.

Exodus Response

We are pleased that Ruth enjoyed some aspects of this trip, but we are sorry that the smog impacted on her holiday; this winter has been one of the worst India has experienced in a long time and regrettably due to the intense fog there was a very high demand for buses to replace the disrupted trains. We have a safety policy to employ two drivers on each bus when travelling overnight, so this limited our options further and unfortunately having investigated Ruth’s feedback we believe that the bus this group used between Agra and Varanasi was not up to our usual standards. We have followed up on this with our local operator, but we are sorry for Ruth’s discomfort. On a more positive note, we are very glad that Ruth found her tour leader to be amazing.

Grand Tour of Indochina

This was a 28 day tour of the whole of Indochina. The Group was 18 in total which was a little large, however it was a great group of people. I greatly enjoyed the trip and the new people that I met. The tour visited magnificent palaces, modern and ancient temples, a variety of caves and areas of outstanding beauty. Christmas in Hoi An and New Year in Phnom Penh were both special days. The bustle of Hanoi and Saigon will be an enduring memory. Indeed practically every day brought a new and exciting experience

A very busy and cold week but fantastic fun. Expect to we well fed, exhausted and probably bruised by the end of the week but equally thrilled with the beauty of basecamp and exhilarated with activities.

Go there before everyone else does

Was sort of expecting what India must have been like 30/40 years ago before the tourists - it is and it isn't

Chimps and gorillas of Uganda

This was a great holiday and we fell in love with Uganda during the trip. Although most people booking this trip will probably expect the gorillas to be the highlight, we found the chimpanzees' more energetic behaviour even more captivating, though having a silverback plus females with infants clinging beneath almost brush past us was the highlight of the trip. We saw a leopard resting very close to a track in Queen Elizabeth National Park, saw a tree-climbing lion in Ishasha and had a great boat trip on the Kazinga Channel.

Discover Sri Lanka

This holiday did exactly what the title suggested. We discovered ancient Sri Lanka, its flora and fauna, its magnificent scenery and its friendly people. We cycled, walked, and did white-water rafting and tried our skill playing the local games. The coach was comfortable and driven well. The guide, driver and co-driver were excellent. The hotels were good and the food excellent. We travelled over Christmas and New Year and the weather was unseasonably wet but this adversity seemed to bring the best out of the group. I would recommend this trip but you may need to catch up on your sleep afterwards.

Colours of Rajasthan

It was a busy trip, small group only seven of us, a lot of travelling but that added rather than detracted, an amazing guide and driver and we saw everything! The advantage of being on the road is we saw things we could not see had we flown or even been on a train. People working, doing business, women gossiping in groups, children playing, it was an eye opener.

Tiger, India

Tigers Galore

This was a lovely trip. I had linked 2 trips together. Highlights of India (First 10 days) and this trip. After the first 10 days of being on the go non stop it was lovely to be in one place for the most of this trip. You dont realise how elusive tigers are until you get here. Dont be surprised if you dont see any at all! However when you do the feeling of elation is incredible. Of the 8 game drives 3 were a wash out due to heavy rain ( not even the birds or monkeys were out) but we luckily saw 3 tigers. (this is super lucky). One tiger we spent at least 10 - 15 mins with just watching her walk about it was amazing to spend tme with such a magnificent creature.

Discover Burma

In many ways Burma was what I was expecting and more - fabulously friendly people, varied countryside and intriguing history. However the trip was let down (not for the first time in my experience) by having too many people (17) which meant the guide's ability to provide added value insight, suggestions for free time etc was compromised, and certain activities (such as walking around downtown areas of the main cities) just didn't work. This was a great shame.

Exodus Response

We are sorry that Anne-Marie and Julie (review below) felt that their group size was too large. In general, group sizes are only increased in unusual circumstances, however, since Anne-Marie and Julie travelled we have agreed on a policy change not to exceed maximum numbers where at all possible; we do hope that this will help prevent clients being disappointed going forward.
