Independent walking is complete freedom. You can cherry-pick your sightseeing stops along the way, decide to linger over lunch, or set off an hour earlier to catch the coolest part of the day. And with Exodus' in-depth trip notes to keep you company, you'll never feel rushed, or alone. You'll get recommendations for the best lunch and rest spots, excursion routes and notes on places of interest. And Exodus will transport your luggage for you between your hotels and provide high-quality support through local suppliers, as well as 24-hour emergency assistance if required.
Adventure is what Exodus was founded upon over 45 years ago, and what the company is still all about: discovering countries, cultures, environments, cities, mountain ranges, deserts, coasts and jungles; exploring this amazing planet we all live on.
Exodus knows what makes you tick when it comes to holidays: a yearning to visit new places and come home with a real sense of what they're all about. This means delving into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to its unique identity. At the same time, Exodus always remembers that we are all only guests. So Exodus travels courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise impact, to ensure that every Exodus holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.
This is a philosophy Exodus takes with it around the world, helping you reach some incredible destinations on 600+ itineraries across over 100 separate countries. Exodus also strives to provide as much flexibility and choice as it can, making it simple for you to experience a very different holiday.
Every Exodus adventure is enhanced by personal experience. Exodus' people have travelled to more than130 countries, to uncover their best-kept secrets and unmissable highlights. As you explore the world, you will do so with leaders who love to introduce you to their home countries, sharing stories and sights that allow you to experience it like a local. It's these leaders – some who excel in fields such as mountaineering or archaeology – who show you the real heart of a destination, allowing you to have a truly immersive experience.
With over 500 expertly arranged trips to more than 100 countries, you have an exciting choice to make. Exodus' departures encompass winter specific adventures, cultural trips, cycling and trekking holidays, wildlife encounters and unforgettable family experiences, each with an activity rating so you can choose how active your trip will be. While Exodus' itineraries are carefully crafted, they are flexible in how you enjoy them. Travel with like-minded adventurers as part of a guided group or with family and friends on a personalised, tailor made trip. You can also add extensions, flight upgrades and more.
Exodus is determined that future generations continue to enjoy exploring the world as we do, so Exodus leaves as small an impact as possible when it travels. With your help, Exodus supports the communities that so graciously share their homes through various projects, championing local businesses and creating jobs. The Exodus Travels Foundation has initiated projects to take children and porters on adventures in their homeland for the first time, as well as community projects in the Himalaya and more.
Activities, transport, accommodation and your tour guide are all arranged for you, so you can forget the logistics and simply focus on enjoying your holiday. Extensive trip notes for each adventure tell you all you need to know before you go, from any vaccination information to the expected weather. On guided group trips, Exodus' expert leaders are always on hand with advice should you need it, and they always have recommendations too. Exodus is also proud to say that 97% of its travellers would recommend Exodus to their friends.
With Exodus you're in safe hands
All Exodus' office staff have a passion for travel and adventure, and between them have notched up experience that spans 171 different countries – all of which means Exodus knows how to give you the best experience when you travel with them. Exodus has even won awards for it.
That's not all. In their former lives, Exodus' team members have been professional archaeologists, wildlife guides, overland drivers, mountain leaders, diving and ski specialists and mountain bike gurus – and they use our expertise to give you the very best adventure possible. Extensive planning, research, fact-finding and training are just some of the ways this expertise comes through in your adventure.
It is no exaggeration to say that Exodus' tour leaders can make a world of difference to the enjoyment of your holiday – so they are chosen carefully. The result is that, in 2015, 97% of travellers said they would recommend Exodus to a friend. Where possible, Exodus trains and employs local leaders because they can provide invaluable insights that enrich the trip. What's more, this investment in local staff really helps you benefit both them and their community.
Tourism is one of the most important and largest industries on the planet. It employs more people worldwide than any other, with millions of families relying on tourism for their daily needs. Of course there are negatives attached.
The last few decades have been dotted with disaster stories where tourism has resulted in over-development, destruction of environments and in cultural misunderstandings and mistrust. It has also recently been embroiled in the debate about global warming and carbon emissions caused by flying. Exodus believes that its type of small group, positive impact tourism can bring benefits to many communities, help preserve the environments you travel to see, and provide real and positive social exchanges.
