An excellent trip with superb guides. Although the trip notes were revised (following previous customer feedback) they bore little resemblence to the far superior schedule we enjoyed. Our two guides (Mahmoud & Awad) were thoughtful, attentive and constantly made sure that all walking was at the appropriate level for the group and that everything was to our satisfaction wherever possible. I would suggest that Exodus give some thought to changing flights to Sharm rather than Cairo to reduce travel time between Cairo and Sinai and further enhance the holiday.
Bhutan was a stunning country that I would recommend to any traveller. From a Trek standpoint the Laya trek was a strenuous walk through some of the best, unspoilt Himalayan scenery I believe is available anywhere - a MUST see for the fit trekker.
It was a good trip, though i thought slightly long, the camping was unnecesary as there seemed accomodation within a few km of where we camped. This meant we spent longer putting up and taking down tents than we did in using the proximity of the locale to see anything.
This was my first Exodus holiday and my first group holiday travelling alone, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But I needn't have worried; it was a great experience thanks to the wonderful setting and the excellent local guide, Alison. It was also my first time in Turkey and I was very impressed: great food, beautiful scenery, friendly people and, of course, wonderful weather. Kas is a great town, with real character.
This was a fantastic adventure holiday with knowledgeable guides and a fun group of people who looked out for each other. Nuns, debating monks, snowcovered Yaks welcoming nomads,exquisite temples and buddhas.
