Our holiday was amazing. We were looked after right from our first general enquiry to On the Go Tours, through to the last jam packed day of our holiday, and I can't recommend them all highly enough. Tim in the office fast tracked our Jordanian visa to accommodate our tight time frame, and set up an incredible 4 days for us with drivers and our very own wonderful guide called Rami.

Rami is The Man. His knowledge is encyclopedic but he shared it at a pace we could follow and we learned so much. Given Jordan's abundant history such a commentary really brought each place to life but he also allowed us plenty of time to explore on our own. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were even given a substantial tour on the last day that wasn't part of the original package. We returned from Jordan totally on a buzz and we both thank you all for making it one of our best tours ever.

From the day we flew out till we landed home, the holiday was very organised. Everyone who were involved were fabulous and very friendly. We were made to feel welcome everywhere we went and nothing was too much for the team. Our first guide was Arthur. He was amazing, friendly, funny, hospitable and very knowledgeable on all aspects regarding Sabah and Borneo. All daily itinerary were spot on and each day were full of activities, from relaxing to historical visits. The homestay was lovely. Ismail was our host and made us very welcome into his home. He had 2 volunteers from Canada and California there for 2 weeks too. I can’t stress enough how fantastic Arthur was during our time with him and his driver, min, was also fabulous. It was a shame to say goodbye to Arthur as he handed us over to the driver who took us to Sandakan.

Our second guide was Ronald. He too was fantastic and was very passionate about his work. He specialized in all butterflies but mostly concentrated on endemic butterflies in Borneo. His knowledge during our time with him was second to none. All questions he answered in an expansive, factual way. He was very thorough and used every minute possible to accommodate what we wanted. We couldn’t asked for better guides. All accommodation was satisfactory, however we upgraded couple of times to air conditioned accommodation. It would be good to be given this option prior to travel. Food was excellent at all times with plenty of choices and no limit on how many times on re-fills. Their coffee was amazing and bought some to bring back home.

In summary the tour was fantastic, visited numerous locations with thorough knowledge of all sites. We saw plenty of wildlife, from insects to orangutans. We were busy for the whole duration and loved every minute of it. Well done and thank you. John Williams and Jane Taylor-Williams

Beautiful walking in the Sierra de Aitina. This is really a hidden gem of an
area. It is incredibly scenic area and the walking is interesting and varied
and the length of the walks are about right I’d say.

The accommodation is in the most truly stunning setting. To have exclusivity
of such a place was a real treat. We were looked after incredibly well. The
service and value for money for this trip is excellent.
Aitina Natural guesthouse and it’s owner Natxo, one of the nicest people I
have ever met whilst travelling. Exodus are lucky to have him!
The accommodation is in such a beautiful setting. It really is true escapism.
We were looked after so well. Nothing was too much trouble. We were served a
three course meal every evening and the food was amazing including the packed
lunches.


Self guided so not really applicable, but the owner of the guesthouse managed
everything we needed perfectly.


We felt this trip gave us fantastic walking in a beautiful place and the
accommodation and food was superb.
This is an unknown area so there aren’t lots of people but it is truly a
scenic area. The almond blossom was spectacular and we were lucky to be there
when it was in full bloom.
Just very simply a W onderful holiday. Can’t commend this holiday enough.
Go!!!!

My son and I cycled from Vienna to Budapest in early June. We had a great
time. The accommodation was fabulous all the way and the cycles were high
quality. The map and other information was very helpful and although we
didn't need it, help would have been at hand if anything had gone wrong. Most
of the cycling we did was on quiet roads or cycle lanes which made us feel
fairly safe. My only warning to prospective cyclists on this holiday is just
to point out that not much of it is actually along the Danube, probably
because there just isn't a decent path going along it I guess. Our highlight
was Gyor. Never heard of it? We hadn't either but it's a real gem.
Bratislava is really charming and Budapest is a city built on a grand scale.
Vienna? We weren't so impressed. Just a little bit too la di dah for our
taste but a city you have to see especially if like us you are big fans of
"The Third Man." Yes, the wheel is still there and yes we did go on it. You
have to, right?
