COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

What a great  country Costa Rica is! Really accessible for all, great wildlife everywhere, fantastic culure and to top it all off really suited to cycling.

GRAND TOUR OF ICELAND

Brilliant trip especially for anyone interested in landscape, scenery and birds, accommodation is as advertised i.e. basic in places (although clean and comfortable) and slightly inconvenient in one which the leader is intending to address.  If you didn't know beforehand how many types of volcano and lava there are, you'll return having seen them all.

MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS

A thoroughly enjoyable and well organised week. Oliver and Elaine are excellent hosts, the Chalet Savoy is a comfortable and homely base for the trip with amazing views, and the food is excellent. The five treks are all different, varied and well planned. All in all, this is a fantastic trip to see the best of the Mont Blanc area.

WALKING IN TUSCANY

The whole holiday came up to expectations. Our guide Sara couldn't have done more for us and adapted our walking to suit the weather per4fectly. The accommodation was comfortable and welcoming and their food delicious. The walking was challenging for me but achievable and worth the effort. Having the company of Elvis the dog on some walks was an added bonus.

KILIMANJARO CLIMB - RONGAI ROUTE

Climbing Kilimanjaro was an adventure for me. i wasn't sure what to expect, but found that the trip exceeded my expectations! We were all so well looked after and the whole experince was fantastic. Getting to the top of Kilimanjaro is not guarenteed, but as a group we all made it, which is a real testimony to how well we were looked after and supported on the trip.

MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS

Oliver, the leader, was unenthusiastic, like an office clerk doing the same job for years. He was difficult to understand, sometimes snappy but foremost, I felt like on a school trip when a teacher would scold you for anything. It was obvious he had some bad experience in the mountains, because even when you tried to keep walking, tired of stopping all the time, and stayed ahead of the group, he panicked and would brag about safety in the mountains for hours &days! Food was quite basic, we all craved for veg and fruits and had to stock up ourselves with those things. Last but not least, it didn't feel like grade B+, there were too many stops, you couldn't get into the rhythm of walking because of the guide stopping with his dog every 5 minutes! That was quite annoying as we didn't pay for a stroll with a dog in the park.

Exodus Response

Oliver has been an Exodus leader for many years and his knowledge and experience are of the highest level. He regularly scores very highly in our client feedback survey and as can been seen from other comments on this review page, clients have been extremely happy with him and the trip as a whole. Oliver also leads winter itineraries for us and you will be able to see many 4 and 5 star reviews on these also: Trip codes CEB, CEC and CYC. For any leader client safety on the trip is essential and this means ensuring the group do not become too spread out on a walk. This can be more tricky to manage in a group with varying abilities but all our leaders are experienced at managing this situation to ensure that the group are happy and enjoy the trekking pace. Please note that this itinerary is Grade B and not B+ and the itinerary has been set to reflect this. Elaine, Oliver’s wife prepares a delicious menu throughout the week and again you will see from previous reviews that this is well received. With each evening meal there are normally 3 different vegetables served and breakfast and lunch usually include fruit. Dylan their Fox Terrier does accompany some of the walks and has proved a popular addition. He is extremely friendly and loves having his photo taken!

TUSCANY: CYCLE SIENA & CHIANTI

We have learned a new meaning for the term "undulating", but to be fair, we knew in advance that Tuscany is hilly. If you wish to cycle every km of this trip, then a reasonable level of fitness will be required. That said, the effort is well worth while. The scenery is fantastic. The road surfaces are excellent. The gravel paths are great fun and the hill top villages and towns are stunning. We were blessed with the weather to match and a fantastic group of people to share it with.

CYCLING THE DALMATIAN COAST

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday.  Kudos goes to a very engaging and professional guide, a great group and lovely food, but the real star was Croatia itself; gorgeous scenery around every corner, beautiful green sea, scented with herbs and flowers and, especially on the islands, a very friendly people.
