Tuscany countryside, Italy

Beautiful HILLY Tuscany

So as a complete novice to cycling I discovered it is a wonderful way to see a country, but damned hard work in this hilly part of the world! Great group of people to share the holiday experience with. Helpful supportive guides, but make sure you prepare for this trip with hill training.

Gorillas Mara (reverse)

The phrase 'Trip of a life time' just doesn't come close to describing this holiday, I have wanted to do this trip for many years and it lived up to all my expectations and so much more.

Table Mountain at sunset, South Africa

Fantastic experience

This is a most fantastic trip with plenty of wildlife viewings (although not as many in numbers as the Masai Mara). Lots of travelling through beautiful countries - South Africa, Lesotho & Swaziland - where there are some tremendous views. This is a trip where you really NEED TO READ THE TRIP NOTES. So many of our group were not prepared for the long days travelling or the many nights camping. One person hadn't even brought a sleeping bag with her!! If you want luxury lodges this is not the trip for you. The more you read up before travelling the more you get out of this trip. The campsites were in some superb locations with tremendous views and most had excellent shower facilities and most even had places to charge batteries.

A nice trip, but not what I expected

It was a nice trip, but I was expecting something different. I was looking for an authentic encounter with nature, and this trip felt very touristic. The Masai Mara was fantastic, but unfortunately there were tons of tour companies around. The jeeps are communicated by radio and as soon as a jeep encounters an interesting animal, the driver alerts the others and in a matter of minutes tens of jeeps with tourists arrive at the same spot. It is indeed a fantastic place, but there are a lot of tourists around. We were lucky enough to see a lot of animals in August, and apparently it's not such a great sightseeing experience during non-migration season. If you are offered to visit the Masai village, be aware they practice FGM and if you feel uncomfortable with this practice, you might want to consider whether to pay the entrance to support them or not. The brief visit to the village ends in an improvised gift shop inside the village, where you are pushed to buy incredibly overpriced souvenirs. It really felt forced and kinda defeated the authentic experience of their culture I expected to have. In terms of accommodation, I thought it had the right balance of camping and permanent camps / hotels.The first camp where we stayed was not good: the first night there was a bunch of British teenagers partying until 3 or 4 am. The second night I talked to the camp manager and they did stop the music at 11pm, which was good. The rest of the camps were very nice, even the more basic ones. The thing that perhaps disappointed me the most was to get to places after long drives and not have any activity included in the trip to do. Of course you have what's called "optional activities" which you can pay to join, but (a) they were seriously overpriced (b) I didn't consider the activities "optional" because I hadn't fly all the way from London to stay at the camp. It'd have been nice to have an alternative activity included, even a walk in nature would have been exciting. It has to be said that our cook Dun was amazing, with very abundant and tasty food with and it was never a problem to serve different dietary requirements (coeliac, vegetarian, etc). Our driver Ben was super skilled and kept us safe through challenging roads. The entire crew made us feel always very well and at home.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Teresa for her online review. Exodus is currently working to highlight the issue of FGM by supporting the Kenyan charity, S.A.F.E., who has been working with the remote Masai community of the Loitta Hills, South-west Kenya since 2008 to help abolish the practice of female circumcision. This programme has already had an impact on the Loitta Hills community by encouraging an Alternative Rite of Practice (ARP), ie: graduating to womanhood without being cut.

Dordogne gastronomic cycling trip

A fantastic nine day trip through a beautiful section of the Dordogne, riding between hotels and visiting historic chateaus and towns along the way. The accommodation was excellent, the food was wonderful and the self-guided trip allows you to proceed at your own pace.

Uzbekistan Uncovered

Uzbekistan is known as the " land of the golden smile" not a reference to a national happiness index but rather that many local women and some men have mouths featuring the status symbol of a full set of shiny golden teeth. It's dazzling! The Uzbeks are good spirited and genuinely hospitable. I didn't feel like a tourist or a traveller more like a guest of Uzbekistan.

Second time on this trip (yes, it is that good) and cannot think of a more rewarding and adrenaline filled week for an offroad enthusiast.

Sicilian volcanoes

A great group, guide, weather and location. An excellent itinerary with a mixture of contrasting activities and locations, from hiking and swimming on the peaceful Aeolian islands, to climbing the moonscape of Etna, whilst there is still free time to do other things.

Great Wall, China

Walking the Great Wall

The walking was much more interesting than I might have feared because we were using unrestored and relatively remote sections. it was really good to feel that the villages we stayed in overnight gave us an insight (however slight and sanitised) of life in a part of rural China.
