    We would like to thank David for his review, although we regret that he was did not feel that enough information was given at times on his trip. We have received very positive feedback on this itinerary in the past, and we note that the Exodus tour leader, Fabrizio, was rated 4.65 out of a possible 5 stars by clients on this departure. We remain confident in Fabrizio’s excellent ability to lead this tour, however we are sorry that David’s experience with him was less positive. Unfortunately, as the trip notes mention, Italian legislation rules that tour leaders are not allowed to guide groups in some cities, museums, and churches. One of these is Matera, where Exodus must use a local licenced guide, and though we take on board David’s feedback relating to the local guide, we believe that the tour of Matera, a beautifully unique UNESCO heritage site, is still worthwhile, providing visitors with insights into the city’s rich culture and history that might otherwise be lost. When reviewing feedback from future trips, we will bear David’s comments in mind and will, if necessary, make changes. -Exodus Travels

Travel Safety Charter

A safe return to adventure

Exodus Travels is committed to the safety of our travellers, leaders, staff and suppliers at all times. It’s just as important now as it was back in 1974, when we took our first travellers on an overland journey deep into the heart of the Hindu Kush in Afghanistan. With a focus on the great outdoors and getting of-the-beaten track, our expertly guided active & adventure trips are well suited to safe and healthy travel.



Safe Destinations​

All of our Exodus destinations will be required to pass a 5-stage approval process, which includes FCO advice and a separate validation by a leading independent Travel Risk Management company.


You can contact our Travel Experts at any time for the latest information on local travel guidelines, country entry requirements or health certifications. We will regularly update trip notes and advice so you have up-to-date information.



Cleaning Protocols

Enhanced cleanliness and hygiene safety measures will be introduced in our accommodation, transport, meal locations and venues, and our local teams will visit each one in advance of travel.


Exodus Travels has received the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp, which provides travellers with additional assurance that we have adopted health and hygiene global standards designed to keep your travels as safe as possible.


Your Accommodation:

We will check that enhanced cleaning protocols have been introduced by our accommodation providers, which may include the following:


Enhanced cleaning measures, with focus on ‘high-touch’ areas to be routinely carried out in the properties used.​

Staff trained in relation to the Prevention of Spread of Infection (POSI) for inside and outside the workplace. ​

Processes implemented to allow for physical distancing in public areas, for example during the check in process, in lifts and in public seating areas.​

Enhanced standards for food preparation including training, use of face masks if required, superior cleaning for areas that are involved in meal preparation, and replacing a restaurant’s buffet service with a waiter service. ​

Additional single rooms at a preferential rate for solo travellers who would like them. Please speak to the team who will be happy to arrange this for you.​


On the transport:

We use spacious, private vehicles restricted to your group members only. Your guide will  ensure that customers use the same seat for all journeys in one day.​

Vehicles are thoroughly cleaned before departure, and daily throughout your trip. Hand sanitisers are readily available onboard where regular handwashing may not be possible.​


At your meals:

Suitable venues will be proposed for all meals, whether included in the price of your holiday or at your own cost, and whether your guide accompanies you or not. 


The meal venue proposed will reflect: 


Cleanliness and hygiene measures for staff, equipment and venues. ​

Use of face masks for staff involved in the preparation and serving of food. ​

Options to effectively distance from other customers. ​

Measures laid out by local government or controlling authorities. ​



Healthy Small Groups

On our guided group trips, you’ll join a ‘small group bubble’ (average of 10 travellers). Every member of your small group will complete a declaration prior to travel, to state they are free of COVID symptoms and any known exposure, and will be asked to take a temperature check in the first 12 hours upon arrival.


Before you travel +

Prior to your trip we will send you our latest safe travel guidelines. We’ll ask you to acknowledge that you understand and will abide by the advice to keep the group safe and well.

If in the unlikely event you show symptoms of COVID-19, or have received a positive test or have been asked to self-isolate via your Government’s Test and Trace scheme up to 20 days before travel, we will refund you free-of-charge. ​Terms apply.

We recommend that you purchase travel insurance that includes medical cover for COVID-19, Coronavirus, or any pandemic illness. You will need this to cover any care or costs relating to COVID-19.

On your trip +

We keep group sizes small in order to maintain a low risk ‘small group bubble’, with an average of 10 guests in each group.

Additionally, group members will be asked to do a temperature check on arrival or within the first 12 hours of the start of the tour.

For now, your Exodus Guide won’t shake hands on arrival or hug on departure, but will offer support on an activity, like a tricky point on a walking trail, where the benefit is deemed to outweigh the risk. ​

Your Exodus Guide will ask you to report any COVID symptoms immediately, so that appropriate action can be taken to safeguard the group. ​

Your Exodus Guide will carry some extra personal protection equipment, for example face masks, disposable gloves, hand sanitiser, thermometer; surface cleaning materials & COVID-19 tests.

In the unlikely event that your group needs to self-isolate, your local team will offer support throughout. We will help arrange accommodation and food and help to organise medical care and liaise with your insurance provider. In the unlikely event that a guide contracts COVID, they will be replaced immediately. ​



24/7 Expert Guidance

Your expert local guide will plan ahead to minimise time in crowded places by re-routing or arriving at quiet times, where possible.


Our experienced UK based response-team work in tandem with your guide to keep you safe on your adventure, helping to identify local medical facilities or arrange for you to come home if required.


Prior to your trip, our UK HQ will work with the local team to re-route or amend itineraries, where possible, to avoid high risk or high-density locations and comply with local guidance.  If this affects a highlight of the trip, or if the location cannot be avoided, we will update the trip notes and send them to you 7 weeks before departure. ​

We will make every effort to reduce prolonged close interaction with the general public, especially in indoor spaces. ​

Your Exodus Guide will advise you if face masks are recommended for a specific visit. ​

Our UK HQ response team have details of the most suitable medical care facilities for each point on the trip, and will work in tandem with your guide, should you need it. ​

If official travel advice changes during your trip, your guide will work closely with UK HQ to reroute or help with repatriation if required.
