Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.
Basic - 2 star You'll stay in no-frills, but clean and comfortable, hotels or guesthouses. A 'Basic' trip might also involve a few nights of camping.
Value - 3 star Mid-range budget with accommodations ranging from comfortable lodges, guesthouses, and homestays to three star hotels.
Premium - 4 star 3 to 4 star western hotel equivalents. While not all lodging will be 'luxury' they will be quite comfortable by western standards.
Luxury - 5 star The highest level of comfort and service. All accomodations are in four or five star hotels, boutique lodges or high-end homestays.

      I've never had a travel group cancel a trip before. Trafalgar canceled my honeymoon we booked ages in advance my honeymoon. They didn't even have the decency to call. They sent an email as if this wasn't a stressful enough time for planning. As far as we can tell from their non-direct answers they canceled it due to underbooking. Their solution was to just change to a different trip. I'm not sure if they realize how trip planning or buying plane tickets work. we'll never book with them again.

      This was a trek that was harder than I expected for the walking, but there
      are no altitude issues at all. It was professionally led by John Briggs and
      coked for by a lovely Lithuanian lady we all called Ads. Most days we walked
      up to a col with fantastic views and then back down to the next camp site or
      other hut style accommodation.

      There was a fair bit of walking on snow and ice, but the presence of the snow
      really added to the scenery and I was not uneasy about it at any time.

      I lost 7lbs which was slightly disappointing (I lost 21 lb on last year's 3
      week trek in Pakistan) but the food was irresistible, and wine and beer were
      available at modest prices.
      Our first view of the Matterhorn was amazing. Utterly majestic.


      Very professional says it all. A good leader in control of the group at all
      times and offering help and advice when needed.


      Do some training. Not just in the gym. I visited the Brecon Beacons for four
      two day stints in the weeks before I went. It really paid dividends, not
      only being able to take the walking in my stride, but being able to enjoy the
      trip rather than suffering from tiredness. Be prepared for steep ascents and
      descents over several hours.


      Always accept the guide's judgement. If he decides to turn back or take a
      detour because he considers a section unsafe, he is probably right. Don't
      question the decision.

      A Memorable Trek
      This trip had everything, meadows, mountains, snow, rock and the thrill of
      the great outdoors. However, the trip wasn't just about the wonderful scenery
      and hiking, a large part of its success was the team spirit that was fostered
      by our leader John Briggs and camp manager Egle.
      There were several highlights, however, I very much liked the steady ascent
      to Villa and Col Torrent. The panoramic views of the vast mountain range were
      wonderful.


      John Briggs is an outstanding leader, multi-talented. His practical
      instruction on how to proceed on difficult terrain was most helpful. He was
      always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure each day was a success.
      Overall John displayed exceptional leadership skills. I have no hesitation in
      nominating John for the annual leader awards.
      John was ably assisted by Egle, together their pleasant manner added greatly
      to group bonding and the forming of new friendships.
      On returning from a trek, Egle would have tents set up and coffee and
      biscuits at the ready.
      The delicious, wholesome 3 course meals were cooked on a gas stove. in the
      middle of nowhere, (magic) and all done with a smile.


      On our trip in early July we encountered several snow fields. I found it
      useful to have a light set of walking crampons.


      This trip is strenuous and at times challenging. There is a definite need to
      train and get into good physical condition. This will ensure you are not
      under pressure on the trek and can enjoy it to the full.

      A thiroughly enjoyable, challenging and stunningly beautiful trip across the
      French and Swiss Alps.
      It’s hard to distill all the best bits of the trip into one, but the
      combination of stunning scenery, personal challenge and top quality
      leadership and support makes the trip a jewel in the Exodus crown.


      John Briggs was a top rate leader. Hugely knowledgable, impressively fit,
      patient and kind and an all round great guy.


      The trip is challenging in parts but that should not deter you from
      experiencing some of the best views in the Alps, and spending time with a
      great bunch of fellow travellers. It’s hugely enjoyable and well worth it.

      My second Exodus trek in the Alps, and the Haute Route deserves the
      challenging grade, definitely tougher than TMB. Very well organised by
      Exodus, excellent leader and camp manager, and a great bunch of 12 trekkers.
      Reaching the summit of the third col of the day between Mont Fort and
      Prafleuri mountain refuges, the Col de Prafleuri (almost 3000m). This day 5
      of the walk stayed over 2500m all day, we were fortunate to have a fine day
      for it.


      John is a natural leader, highly skilled in mountain technique but also very
      sensitive to the different abilities and interests of group members. He
      quickly gauged the correct pace, and knows when to give extra support to
      people who need it, e.g. with tricky parts of a steep descent. He kept our
      spirits up on the days with poor weather, and on fine days allowed the
      fastest members of the group to go ahead (but then wait at junctions). He has
      an excellent knowledge of Alpine geography and trees, which he was ready to
      share. Having been led by John on TMB in 2014, I was delighted to meet him
      again on arrival at Geneva.


      This trip is not for those who lack fitness and stamina. Several days wth
      1000m or more ascent and descent, one after another: there is no rest day
      until after 6 days walking. Do this trip if ready for a challenge, otherwise
      consider the Tour du Mont Blanc TMB.


      Our camp manager Egle deserves full credit alongside John. She managed to
      perform wonders on a basic cooking stove, very imaginative menus, and the
      large portions one needs on such an energetic trek. The whole Exodus camp set
      up is very well thought out, including the design of tents, mess tent and all
      the auxiliary equipment like facilities to charge phones etc. I would suggest
      that the tents used are absolutely fine for one person but I would advise
      anyone travelling without a partner or very good friend to pay the single
      supplement. The two mountain refuges were an interesting experience of living
      close together, unavoidable to complete the route. Most of the campsites very
      well equipped, Exodus do not hide the fact that two others have very basic
      facilities.
