This review is based on being specifically ‘Designed for children aged 9-12’.
In summary, in our opinion, it is not.
It is simply the (excellent) adult trip with a few omissions and permitting children.
To give my review some context:
Our children are in the age bracket for whom this trip is designed.
I’ve been travelling with Exodus since 2006 and this was my seventh trip with one of those being the adult version of this trip.
Last year we travelled all over Vietnam on a family holiday with Intrepid.
All of these trips I’ve mentioned were outstanding experiences and no matter the price, excellent value for money. I continue to recommend those trips and Exodus at every opportunity to both the uninitiated and the many repeat trippers looking for something they haven’t yet tried.
But unfortunately this was the first where I felt my expectations weren’t met and I felt rather disappointed.
I would endorse the views expressed by previous reviewers Jon Browning and Stephen Dossett and encourage you to read them.
