Walking the Great Wall

WALKING THE GREAT WALL

The 'Walking The Great Wall' trip was a fantastic experience, encompassing six days of trekking on different parts of the wall. It was physically challenging at times but it was a highly rewarding experience.

Mont Blanc Ascent

Disappointed

1
The group that I was in arrived in Chamonix on 23 July 2015. We were told that as of 17 July 2015 the Company of Guides - Saint Gervais (basically the people who manage and look after the Mountain) had suspended any walking / climbing on Mont Blanc for an indefinite period. This was due to several weeks of unseasonably high temperatures melting the ice further up the mountain, so releasing rocks and causing rock fall. On the first night we were told that there was '99%' likelihood that the Gouter Route would remain closed for the duration of the trip. I am disappointed that I was not told in advance of the booking as I have a flexible work environment allowing me to move holidays. Exodus should have informed me and the rest of the group in advance providing us with the option or re-booking which in the very least would have saved approx £500 of the add on costs (UK airport parking, equipment hire, lift passes, etc.) I have done a number of trips with Exodus and never had a problem in the past, but to allow the group to fly out on a 'Mont Blanc Ascent' after months of preparation and training, when they knew the mountain was closed is very disappointing.

Exodus Response

We realise that it must have been extremely disappointing for Tim and the rest of the group to find out that on the local authorities had closed the Gouter Route for safety reasons due to concerns about melting snow dislodging rocks. It is extremely rare for the mountain to be closed for a prolonged period of time and given the information at our disposal before this group left the UK and that we could not have reasonably known for how long the mountain would remain closed, we did not contact people travelling to Chamonix as we felt it was reasonable to assume that the weather could change at any point. We do appreciate that this must have been hugely disappointing, but the group instead climbed Gran Paradiso which we hope they enjoyed.

SOUTHERN TANZANIA SAFARI

We saw lots of wildlife, both animals and birds, in parks which have few visitors.   The accommodation is good but there are some long road journeys.   A trip for people who are keen to see wildlife rather than those who want a luxury or safari and beach holiday.

Turquoise Coast Adventure

TURQUOISE COAST ADVENTURE - FAMILY HOLIDAY

This was my first Exodus Holiday and it was a great choice for teenagers- there was a good mix of activities to keep them interested and happy without being exhausted! Kas is a lovely town- no high rise or all inclusive hotels as yet and has enough going on to be interesting- lots of lovely restaurants and shops. No beaches to speak of- but really nice diving platforms to snorkel from and you can catch a water taxi across to Limangazi which was great. The hotel isn't plush- but has very nice friendly staff, great views from the front rooms and a lovely pool area, which is tranquil and shaded and the pool was always at a nice temperature and was great to jump into at the end of the day! There is also a nice bar area (where you sign for your drinks- so no need to worry about having cash with you) and a ping pong table. Food in Turkey is really nice and we found everyone we met to be very friendly and hospitable.

MONT BLANC HOTEL TREK

This was a great holiday for getting away from it all.  However, the effort required in traversing several mountain passes requires a high level of stamina and physical effort; certainly not a trip for the unfit.
