THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Quite honestly, there were so many breathtakingly beautiful sights of the coastline as we walked above it, that it's hard to pinpoint a single moment. However, pushed to choose one -I really loved Ravello and the views from Villa Cimbrone were pretty near to my idea of Paradise!

What did you think of your group leader?

As I've said above, Christine our guide was great. I immediately warmed to her and as wellas being very organised, she was also full of fun and very engaging. She was also very encouraging to everyone and I can't speak highly enough of her - she contributed enomously to the enjoyment of the holiday experience.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Although rated as leisurely/moderate, I would say this holiday leans more to the moderate end when temperature ( I travelled at the end of June) is taken into consideration.  I was in two minds whether to invest in a walking stick, but found to my surprise, that it was invaluable for walking both up and down hills. I travelled with a friend - a little concerned about going on my own - but having now experienced this type of holiday with Exodus, I would have no worries about going it alone next time. 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

To sum up, this holiday was probably the best holiday that I've had for some years. The company was a good interesting mix, as well as being great fun and apart from the wonderful views, it made walking up a steep hill in temperatures of 33 degrees worthwhile, even if I was completely zonked out by the time I got to the top!!  Last thought - go to Herculaneum if you have chance, as I found it much less crowded and possibly more interesting than Pompei.
