“We had a really amazing week in the Dolomites, it was hard work but with huge rewards. Being in the mountains most walks started up, up up and ended down, down, down. But we had some truly amazing views of the Dolomites and Alps and the hospitality in the many Mountain huts was much appreciated. Hotel Adler was very comfortable and the staff were very accommodating for a variety dietary needs (vegetarians, nut allergies etc)”

“My first experience of Exodus was amazing! I was hesitant as a single traveler in a group but it was great. The group were really good fun. We had a brilliant itinerary with cycling, kayaking, boat trip, train & plane trips and an overnight in a local house where our guide showed us how to make Vietnamese food. I loved the variety. Every day was different.”
