“This was a wonderful trip that my husband and I throughly enjoyed. It gave us a great opportunity to explore this beautiful region and thanks to Eduardo we were able to really get the most out of the area. Highly recommended!”

“Our trip was extra special as we were a small selected group being filmed for a documentary so we had TV crew with us as well but the itinerary was the same. I was thinking about doing it for a while so when the opportunity presented itself I decided to wrestle with the famous Mont Ventoux. And it was all it promised to be: stunning region, beautiful weather, picturesque villages and a beast of a climb.”
Review for another Exodus Travels tour

“A delightful holiday somewhat marred by the international flight times (not exodus's fault). For an older traveller like me an arrival after midnight followed by an early morning local flight was a little arduous as it gave very little opportunity to sort out medication and toileting. The scenery was spectacular and very varied and the food was well prepared, good quality and locally sourced. The land based bird watching trip was enjoyable but the bird varieties were similar to those in the U.K.”
