To travel from north to south seeing the total diversity of Vietnam was amazing and breathvtaking.

Cycling the Dalmatian Coast

This was a very well organised and thoroughly enjoyable trip, cycling through some beautiful unspoilt countryside. Some of the scenery is stunning. The hotels are fairly basic, but we only needed a comfy bed after each day's cycling and far too much food and wine for afters. I would highly recommend the trip and we will certainly be back for more cycling with Exodus

Cape Town to Vic Falls

This really is a fantastic trip and packs an awful lot into 3 weeks - great game viewing, amazing places such as Fish River Canyon, the Sossusvlei sand dunes and of course, Vic Falls. That does mean some long drives but there's no other way to get it all done. Camping is a great way to see Africa and I was surprised at the quality of the campsites and the excellent facilities. Lots of amazing memories which will stay with me for a long time.

Trails of Borneo

This holiday certainly provided many amazing, once in a lifetime experiences, but I have to take issue with the difficulty grading in the brochure. In 2013 we did the Canadian Rockies walking holiday which was graded challenging. Trails of Borneo is graded moderately challenging suggesting it's easier. Yes, there were less treks involved but all other aspects of the trip were significantly more challenging. The heat, humidity, food and internal travel were pretty uncomfortable on occasions, and around 1/4 of the small group of 8 became unwell at different times. In my case it was heat exhaustion from hiking the headhunters trail and then sitting in an open long boat for 3+ hours in hot sun. The overall environment was way more alien to me than Canada, but it was my first trip to the Far East. Having said all that, the scenery and wildlife (both large and small) were fantastic, from giant insects to pygmy elephants, orang-utan, proboscis monkeys, snakes, bats, crocodiles and birds. The other group members, guides and support staff were also very good. The itinerary at times, particularly the travel arrangements, felt like they needed some fine tuning. Before we went, I read one review criticising the amount of internal flights. Well thanks a bunch! Exodus obviously took heed and threw in a day of cramped ferry travel instead, which was very unpleasant when suffering from heat exhaustion. Cheap internal flights would have been much better. There also seemed to be a lot of 'optional' side trips, which cost extra, which everyone did. Why not just include them in the main itinerary?

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Malcolm for his review. Further to previous clients’ feedback we swapped one of the internal flights for a ferry journey as we felt that this would give our clients the opportunity to see more of Borneo, including a stop at the Labuan war memorial. We were sorry, however, that Malcolm feels that the flight may have been the better option.

Beautiful Riviera

I wanted to try something different this year and this certainly ticks the box. It's a much better way to see the Riviera than a tour bus or cruise ship.

Angkor south gate, Cambodia

Fantastic trip that changes with each country

A great trip that differs in style in each country. Thailand you are on very quiet roads and complete long (80-90km) rides each day. Very relaxing and you can go at any pace. Staying in small towns with a few bus transfers to avoid the busy roads. Cambodia is mainly in the tourist areas and you cycle around Angkor wat and the surrounding area. This tended to be slower and with the group. Vietnam was through small villages and towns and you spend most your time waving at the locals. Great fun and loads to see and do.

It was an amazing experience which had many highlights from interacting with mountain gorilla to seeing the Masi Mara. The thrill of camping in a national park and the opportunity to get to understand the culture/people of East Africa. I have done many of these trips and the tour leader Often was exceptional as where the crew which made the trip even more special

Mountain biking, Slovenia

Enjoyable cycling and great views

Overall this was a great holiday, with some wonderful views of a beautiful country. Some aspects of the trip were not quite as advertised, in particular the planned routes did not actually include a great deal of proper off-road cycling, although our guides went to extra effort to make up for this and include some additional off-road sections. Also, for the rest day we stayed in a small village with not a lot to do (didn't really matter to us as we wanted to do more cycling anyway, which the guides helpfully arranged for us), and without the advertised 'pool and wellness centre'. We also stayed in another very small village on the last Friday night; as Ljubljana was not far, it would have been nice to stay there instead so that we could have had some time to explore the capital (we knew this before we booked though). The days were not particularly strenuous compared to other trips we have been on, with the cycling usually finishing by early afternoon, but this is probably in keeping with the grading of the trip. The accommodation was excellent (a little too excellent, we would have been happy to stay in less luxurious hotels and pay a bit less!), and overall we had a great time.

Exodus Response

We’re glad to hear that Elizabeth enjoyed her holiday to Slovenia. This was a new trip for 2014 and as a result of Elizabeth's feedback and that of other clients over the season, we will be reviewing the routes on the trip, with plans to add more off road sections in 2015. Elizabeth’s comments regarding lunches have also been taken into consideration and we will be speaking to the guides to make sure they inform clients about buying packed lunches.

Pedalling Through Provence

This cycling trip took in beautiful countryside, pretty and interesting towns and villages and good food and wine but was let down by having only vehicle support and no leader cycling with the group.
