Not to bash Exodus, but I thought the trip would be better.

Guide (Tim) was ok. He mostly was quiet and I would have liked more history, stories of region, facts, etc. while hiking. Also he left us on the free day and couldn’t even stay for dinner the last night- he seemed to be in a rush to get out of there.

We are not sure why, but he also didn’t follow the printed itinerary. Which meant we hiked way longer and higher each day. The printed material said 7 miles most days with 750-1585’ elevation gain yet we ended up hiking 10-12 miles per day with 2000-2500’ gain.

We were exhausted and one in our group didn’t even participate 3 out of 5 hiking days.

Lastly, we all thought the food on the trip would be better. Our chalet hosts (Claire and Liz) were nice but they are not chefs- they are Exodus employees. Since we were staying in Chamonix France we all desired French cuisine but instead had Greek chicken, pasta pesto, and burgers… which seemed odd.

Compared to other tour companies I thought Exodus was okay but underwhelming. The people on the tour were nice but we all felt similarly about the guide and food when chatting.

Advice: Remember Exodus is a budget priced company so you should expect a basic level of services— there really is no wow factor.
I’m undecided if I will give them another chance.
