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!!!!

Cycling the Danube??? February 2018

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?

Sardina close-up January 2018

Self-Guided Cycling in Sardinia: Beaches & Wetlands

  • Value 4.0
  • Guide 4.0
  • Activities 4.0
  • Lodging 4.0
  • Transportation 4.0
  • Meals 4.0
Over six days of cycling from two centres, you see quite a bit of the varied
landscape of Western Sardinia. Hill-top forests, seaside towns, beaches,
dramatic coastal formations and crashing breakers, quaint villages and lots
of sheep. It is, in many waves, very similar to the West of Ireland, though a
bit drier. The two-centre arrangement means less packing suitcases as you
only move once. The cycles vary in length: some include quite challenging
slopes / climbs but all are do-able. Traffic is mostly very light and the
Sardinian drivers are a lot nicer than on the mainland and usually give you
space / wait to pass safely, etc. Road surfaces are generally good with some
rough / unpaved sections, but nothing overly technical. An excellent way to
spend a week!
Visiting the old Phoenician city at Tharros was certainly special, and not
expensive and, as it happened, there were lots of starlings (we think) doing
great murmurations. Seeing flamingos in the wild was special too, but that
was mostly good luck. The breakers at S'Archittu were pretty spectacular when
we were there.


Not applicable.


You won't need a lot of euros for this trip as there are really not a lot of
opportunities to spend them. All meals are provided and the villages are
generally very small with limited coffee shops / bars / shops.


The staff in the first base hotel (Villa Asfodeli) are very helpful and go
the extra mile to try and ensure that you enjoy your holiday. Lots of useful
advice and tips, and lovely food.

Great Walking Tour for those seeking easy walking January 2018

Self - Guided Walking in Puglia and Matera

This is a very good tour for those who don't wish to walk a long way
everyday. Very well organised, different experiences daily in a most
interesting part of Italy.
Matera, Alberobello. Ostuni and Lecce are all marvellous places to visit. We
loved the wine and food tasting at Paco Wines in Alberobello and the
wonderful dinner in Ostuni.


This was a self guided trip. Due to the distances we were picked up and taken
to various towns. All the drivers were on time or early and the cars were
good quality and very clean.


Don't go in summer it would be too hot. Spring and autumn are the best times.


The last day of the tour we were to make a trip from Lecce to Otranto by
public transport. This is not a good idea for a day trip. The train times
there and back were not convenient and there was a requirement to change
trains. In the end we decided not to do this.
