“Firstly, the bikes that we had for our week along the Amalfi coast were first class.  The whole group appreciated this, especially the lady who had hired an electric bike.It was a lovely bonus to have a pool at all but the last hotel, with our first view of the coastline from the hotel balcony absoutely stunning.  The guide was very knowledgeable and kept the group together, showing us hidden gems within the areas.And we couldn't have ordered better weather!!!”

“I did my first Exodus trip hiking the Amalfi Coast in September. It far surpassed my expectations. The hike itself is so beautiful. Everyday we were treated to absolutely spectacular views. The hiking was challenging as there were lots of ups and downs but it was "very doable" as our lovely guide Christine told us.
The group was made up of some Canadians with most being from the UK. I really enjoyed the dynamics of the group and our leader set the tone for what was a very pleasant time.
Our accommodation for the trip was also excellent, as was the food and the special activities like making pasta and tirimisu. Any problems that arouse were quickly taken care of and the staff were very helpful.
I'm already looking for another Exodus trip.”
