Self-Guided Cultural Holidays

This was my third cycling trip with Exodus (April 2022). As always, it is a great way to experience a country. The sight, the smells, the noises. You can’t beat it. Jordan is a must see. The cycling itself is not challenging. The rides are quite short and a couple of steep hills but that is it. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend the tour because of the guide. Who has ever heard of a tour leader not cycling!?!?! His rules for cycling (everyone must be single file – always, you can’t stop for photos, you must cycle at the same pace and with minimal distance between each cyclist) was frustrating and at times dangerous. People have their own pace and to cycle out of this especially up and down hills can be downright dangerous. It was a shame because the group were fun and the itinerary was interesting.

As per the title it seems Exodus sub contracts this trip out to an African travel company and has little to no involvement with the actual trip planning. Because of some failures with a previous trip I reached out to the person in charge of this trip from Exodus end. Sadly it seems Kate gave me a wonderful level of lip service of what to expect and answers to my questions etc. However in reality, she clearly never passed any of her observations onto the African company organising the trip. However 2 other couples who booked through Trailfinders UK (also part of our group) did have their requests passed on. The levels of difference in hotel accommodation were clearly noticeable, although we all paid the same amount.
