Potential for a trip of a lifetime but failed to deliver.trip made harder due to suffering a knee injury for the entire trip - temporarily alleviated by taking 400mg of Ibuprofen. Food was also disappointing - i don't expect ringed out fine dining, but vegetables don't need to have their nutritional properties boiled out of them. I have done trips like this before but this was most disappointing
The Lakes, Wines & Waterfalls trip was an unforgettable experience. Not only did we see some spectacular scenery, sample lots of glorious wines and eat the very best food imaginable, we also encountered some of the friendliest and most beautiful people in the world. The group was wonderful, we were very like-minded and laughed all day long, every day.
The camping meant that for most of the trek we were away from the main treking routes, well worth while. I was so pleased that I hired an Exodus duvet jacket as once the sun went down it was very cold. Take a pack of cards to fill in some time after dinner!
My first Exodus trip and the rest have a lot to live up to in terms of finding the best places to stay and see! For a relaxing week away I couldn't have wished for a better location, any better hosts, or activities - I definately didn't want to come home! The Villa is in the middle of nowhere (perfect!) with the most amazing views. The hosts Stefano and Sergio are fabulous, welcoming, helpful and love you asking questions and really want to teach you and show you how the traditional tuscans live!
This is a nice holiday - a good mix of walking and sightseeing in a part of Spain that has very few tourists. The hotel is good - large rooms, comfy beds, lots of storage space, balcony/terrace with a view in most rooms and the owners are really helpful and friendly. The food is good but it really isn't anywhere near Michelin standard - still some of the best food I've eaten on an Exodus holiday though.
An absolutely brilliant trip. Where else can you see five of the worlds highest peaks at one go! A tough one that earns its grade but well worth the effort. If you want to go high and non-technical Mera Peak is for you!
