The tour leader, Peter, plying and explaining the flute.
Very pleasant knowledgeable man, with a good sense of humour.
No, everything was as expected. In my case
Not a critiscm but a personal choice. I like to make early morning tea, only
2 hotels had a kettle and 2 had coffee machines in the rooms, so a kettle
could be handy.
The tour ran Saturday to Sunday, I think an extra day would be useful,
possibly in Vienna or a small place not easily accesible by 'weekend flights'

Brilliant ... but October 20184.0
more a 2, moderate. The distances to walk are comparatively large and the
surfaces (cobblestones mainly) are not conducive to fast walking even if you
can, and, of course, as always, the speed of the group is governed by the
speed of the slowest person.
That said, it's a wonderful introduction to the cities and towns visited,
their history and how their infrastructure works. The Tatra mountains are
beautiful and welcome break. I will definitely go back to most of the cities.
Each has a feel and charm of its own and, except Vienna, are cheap (for a
Londoner) to stay, eat and travel in. This trip is great if you want to get a
feel for central Europe; you see loads albeit the pace and itinerary don't
allow time to dwell and ponder what you are looking at. You are in a region
of wonderful and gory history and there are massive amounts to take in.
No particular inspirational moment, but the feel of the central market area
in Krakow and the salt mines do stand out.
Peter our guide was brilliantly knowledgeable (much more than the usual
excellent Exodus guides), very personable, was always there to resolve the
inevitable issues but not firm enough on timing leading to people wandering
off to the shops etc. thus delaying the group.
Take a couple of good comfortable walking shoes; there's a lot of it, and a
good water bottle. The tap water is fine and freely available.
Its difficult to work out what cash you'll need; and there are several
currencies. If you travel abroad check out the right debit card with no
commissions and commercial rates and credit card for the same reasons. There
are lots of ATMs and that way you can pull cash as you need it (always use a
'bank' atm to avoid the 3rd party charges) and decline 'their' exchange rate;
and/or use your CC where you can (charged in local currency). It'll save you
sizeable amounts and not leave you with unnecessary cash you have to swap

Make sure your GPS is up to date and your phone is charged. Maps and
directions can be challenging at times, many roads have no signs and
kilometer markers on your bike will be off as soon as you make a single side
trip or wrong turn. GPS got us back on track multiple times.
Research the towns along the way. Many are spectacular and we didn't leave
enough time to explore them.
