    Mario was absolutely amazing!! He is so calm and collected, very informative, patient and encouraging! He is by far the best guide I have ever had on a guided tour!! He made us all feel so comfortable and took time to explain every little detail we had questions about. I would Highly recommend people to take tours guided by him!

    3.0 - Average

    Varied holiday spoiled somewhat by the untypical weather.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?A lot of the rides on the tour were fairly inspirational as regards scenery, although the rain did put a dampener on things.  Food was a mixed bag and I did have a bout of gastro-enteritis on the trip.  There was a lot of bus travel partly due to the fact that in October we were on the off season ferry schedules.            What did you think of your group leader?The group leader arranged the rides well adapting them to the unseasonal weather.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?One might be well advised to avoid October plumping for May instead to avoid adverse weather and restricted ferry services.Is there anything else you would like to add?I shared 76 photos.  Unfortunately only one other person appeared to share any photos with the group.

    I had a fabulous trip and met some great travelling buddies. The Croatian coastline is stunning and cycling is an amazing way to experience it.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Cycling the quiet coastal roads with spectacular views.What did you think of your group leader?Ana was really great. She was experienced in organizing our tour, arranging meals together and is sociable and fun. She was also a good bike mechanic when necessary and able to adjust our itinerary to accommodate some rainy weather.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?October may not be the best month to go. We had quite a lot of rain.Is there anything else you would like to add?I was not too happy with the hotels. I thought they were below average for a trip like this.

    I recommend this trip but suggest doing it outside the rainy season.  The rainy season during our week was Sunday (light drizzle, just to help us acclimatise), Monday (heavy showers followed by heavy rain), Tuesday (morning downpour, afternoon showers), and Wednesday (heavy rain in between periods of torrential rain, although it did clear late in the afternoon)!  Thursday and Friday were mostly dry.  But the islands did look very beautiful between the clouds, we had a fun group of people and our guide did an excellent job of modifying the cycling and finding other activities to suit the weather.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Hiding in a church porch whilst the rain was completely bucketing down!  The idea that we had tried to cycle and been caught out in those conditions was just so funny we all had to laugh.  So we were laughing even before the wine-tasting....What did you think of your group leader?Ana was excellent - made a real effort to modify the cycle plans to suit the occasional gaps between the heavy rain, and to find alternative activities, including cave visits and wine-tastings, due to the shorter cycling programme.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?I'm sure you'll have a great time with better weather!  There are some long hills on the trip, so if you aren't a regular cyclist, do try to do a bit of training before you go.  Is there anything else you would like to add?I had been warned that Croatia was expensive, but on the whole found that prices for meals out were lower than, or at least comparable with, the UK.

    Had a fantastic time on this trip: the group, the scenery and the leader could not be faulted. If you want an introduction to Croatia or simply see it at its best, then this trip is for you.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Great memories:-Completing the climbs on day 1 and 2.-Cycling as close as it gets along the coast line on several occassions.-An amazing Croatian lunch at a family run restaurant in what to me seemed the middle of nowhere. -Dubrovnik early in the morning! I will certainly come back here. -Last but not least: making new friends to go on more Exocus holidays with. What did you think of your group leader?Group leader Vlad was great, he doesn't usually does this particular trip, but much more advanced ones. By the end of the week we were all convinced he was super-human. With the patience of angels he made sure the whole group managed most of the rides. He is passionate about his country and encouraged us all to make the most of all opportunties to explore. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Make sure you understand the skill level you need to do this ride, several in the group hadn't and it made the rides a lot harder for them and slower for the overall group. Because we all got on so well, it wasn't an issue in the group I was in, but could have been in a group who were after speed. Know your gears and be aware that you will be cycling 55K, with 2 x 1000m climbs on 2 days and around 35K the other days. Is there anything else you would like to add?This holiday is in the top 3 of my all time holidays. The surroundings, sunshine, food, people and the feeling of getting fitter with every day, it cannot be beaten, other than by another Exodus holiday possibly....

    This holiday was excellent and extremely well organised.  Some of the hills were tough but very enjoyable - especially the downhill ones!  The guide was always on hand and very helpful in finding great places to eat. Altogether a fantastic holiday.
