CLASSIC DOLOMITES

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The Three Chimneys walk and the ascent up Monte Piana both provided amazing awe-inspiring views. The archeological features relating to World War 1 were also very fascinating and surprising.

What did you think of your group leader?

Karl was a very friendly, sociable, and amusing leader and ensured we were all well informed. He also went at a pace allowing us to enjoy the many varied views and to take photographs. He clearly wanted us to enjoy our time there to the full.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Don't forget your camera!!!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The group flight arrived far too late at night (11.00pm) and was followed by a 2.5 hour coach trip to the hotel, arriving there at 2.30 am. It meant that Karl had to cover reception duties at the hotel and there was no opportunity to have a refreshing drink before flopping into bed! Even Karl was tired the following morning. The first day (i.e. the travel day) is therefore a total write off! We circumvented this as we travelled from Manchester in the morning rather than Gatwick in the evening and had a pleasant day in Venice whilst awaiting the group flight, although this did incur extra costs for left luggage at the airport. If Exodus arranged earlier flights the holiday would have an extra boost with time to spend in Venice or a pleasant afternoon / early evening in Villabassa.
