Cultural Adventure Reviews

Wow! Exodus … thank you …we had a fantastic week. The trip was truly amazing. It was a great combination of leisurely (but hot!) walking in the Tuscan countryside, cultural days in Siena and Florence and superb wine tastings. We were fortunate to share our experience with a wonderful group of people and enjoy a few evenings (and bottles!) dining on the lovely terrace of Hotel Le Renaie. The weather was superb and scenery absolutely spectacular.

This was a great adventure and very good way of seeing a real slice of the country rather that just the tourist hotspots. The trip is full on in terms of keeping moving from place to place and packing a lot into the two weeks – so dont expect a relaxing laid back holiday. The up side of this is that you are constantly seeing new things/places/people which makes for a fascinating time. Dont underestimate the cycling – especially given the heat/humidity – and 100km on a mountain bike is a long day even if you are an experienced cyclist. However, the support is great and seeing the team ready with iced ‘Lemon Lemon’ every 15 to 20km was a very welcome chance to take a break and chat in the shade. The road traffic can be hectic in the towns, so you need to be vigilant for errant scooters/trucks/cows/ dogs etc but the other road users are generally aware of cyclists and give you enough room. Most of the time the support bus takes you in/out of the bigger cities, thereby avoiding the need to ride through the mega busy areas. However, if you are not confident in traffic then you might find some of the riding a bit intimidating.

We had great time with the group for this two-week holiday. We were spoiled by the team who were looking after us. It’s not just the cycling your, but food, culture and team. Finally, I managed to put some photos and video together. Hope you enjoy it:

FAQs about our Cultural Adventures

How does an Exodus Cultural adventure work?

Our tours offer a way of experiencing your ideal holiday as part of a larger group.

Choose your ideal tour, your departure dates, and whether you want flights included. Your selected trip notes will include details of the itinerary, accommodation, weather, food, and transport. Plus, other practical information to prepare you for the trip.

Depending on your chosen tour, you’ll spend one to three weeks exploring your selected destination with a range of organised activities. Some of your trip will be allocated as free time to enable you to discover the area at your own leisure.

What makes Exodus Adventure Travels small group tours a good choice?

Our small guided-group tours are led by experienced local experts and normally have around 8-16 people in one group. We pride ourselves on having an interest-packed itinerary that’s been fine-tuned to showcase the highlights and hidden gems your destination has to offer.

We also like to encourage an inclusive atmosphere with our guided-group adventures, so most days are spent taking part in daily activities with your group. When it comes to mealtimes, check your trip notes to see what breakfasts, lunches, and dinners are included in our itineraries.

On some evenings, your guide will accompany you to dinner and help you choose which regional specialities to try. However, we also like to include some downtime and free days on our trips. This gives you the freedom to explore as you like and heed the guidance of our local expert, who will give great suggestions of where to eat and the best museums and local art galleries to visit. They can also help you organise optional activities like kayaking, ziplining, and more.

What will my group be like?

We’re lucky to have travellers joining us from all over the world, with many coming from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, in a wide range of ages. And what’s more, over 50% of our customers choose to travel solo with us so we rarely have a group that only has one solo traveller – most comprise a good mix of solos, couples, and friends travelling together.

Prior to your trip, you’ll be invited to join our “Departure Lounge” by email, where you can post a message, start a discussion with other travellers, ask questions, and share travel tips. This is a great way to get to know your group before you head off on your adventure.

How big are group sizes?

Our tour groups normally have 8-16 people in them. We find that this is an ideal number as it’s not too large and allows everyone to get to know each other.

Where will the group meet?

Your leader will usually meet you at the destination airport and the entire group will get together for the first time at the specified start hotel. This will be detailed in your itinerary and trip notes.

Will the group activities be tailored to me?

Each trip is given an activity rating which will help you decide if the tour is right for you.

Our ratings relate to fitness levels, expected weather conditions, and the schedule pace, amongst other factors. It’s important to find out the activity level of the tour before booking to make sure it’s one you’re comfortable with.

Can I have my own room if I travel solo?

On our adventures, we offer twin-shared rooms with you and another solo traveller of the same gender in your group.

If you’d like the flexibility to book your own private room for the duration of your trip, for a small added charge, you can choose to add a single supplement to your booking over the phone or online on many of our trips.
