CHIANTI: WALKING & WINE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Walking through the Tuscan countryside.  Absolutely beautiful.

What did you think of your group leader?

Ale is just the most fantastic guide.  We had met him before on our trip to Spain two years ago and it was a delight to be on holiday with him again.  He makes his job look so easy but manages to combine being great company with a being a professional guide who is both informative and 'in control'.  

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Yes.  Book tickets for the Uffizi BEFORE going on the holiday.  This didn't occur to us so we essentially missed the chance of visiting the Uffizi on our day trip to Florence.  Although we found the walking very easy and pleasurable - there were still one or two people who found the going tough.  In the grading of your walking, I think you need to be explicit about the type of walking on each holiday.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

We have now experienced 7 holidays (all Europe) with Exodus (Waymark previously) and every single holiday has been a fantastic and memorable holiday.  The holidays are great value for money and we meet like-minded people.The one downside - EVERY bathroom we have ever had on an Exodus holiday has had a 'floppy' shower head in the shower!  Ha!  As we are handed the key to our room on arrival, we always know that we're going to get the floppy shower head!!!!  But hey, if that's the only thing we can complain about then Exodus are doing a pretty great job.  We will continue to holiday with Exodus.  THANK YOU.
