Just do it!

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Walking in Matera around the cave houses, seeing the cave where the bones of a 28000 year old skeleton were found, going into a 600 year old trulli that was still being lived in, walking through the olive groves enjoying the countryside vistas, sampling the local produce at fabulous picnics put together by our lovely guide, visiting Ostuni the white city, the list goes on. In short we thoroughly enjoyed our week and would do it again.

What did you think of your group leader?

We loved Marinella, she loves her job and her country, she is a mine of information and does her best to make sure that everything runs smoothly for everyone. We enjoyed her sense of humour and her company, she is an absolute delight. We were impressed by Marinella when one of our group members had an accident (before the walk even started ) and she had to balance care and organizing her as well as guiding the group, she must have been under a great deal of stress but she handled the situation professionally and we never felt that she could have done better.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

If you do this trip in November make sure that you take warm clothes for at night and good walking boots.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

This was our first exodus trip and after our experience I don't think it will be our last, hopefully future trips will be as good!
