    I am writing this review some time after our trip as I have been waiting to resolve the issue with Exodus. I dont normally write reviews but I feel I should on this occasion so that if something like this happens again, nobody can claim that this has never... Read more

    Exodus Travels commented on this review
    We remain very sorry that Peter had such an incredibly unpleasant experience during his time in the Galapagos and we have been in touch with him on an individual basis. The situation was thoroughly investigated and additional safety measures have been put in place; we therefore have no reason to believe that a situation like this would recur. Our local operator have been working with the Wittmer Lodge on Floreana for 19 years and this is the first time that an incident like this has occurred; the dogs are tied up in an area of the property not intended for guests’ access. We nonetheless remain very sorry for the understandable distress and pain that Peter suffered. Lucy Crabb – Exodus’ Customer Services Manager

    I have travelled with Exodus on several wildlife/discovery trips and this has to be the best ever. Sensory overload most days. Unique wildlife, plantlife and unreal scenery. Despite the evidence of human impact you can surely see why Darwin was so inspired.... Read more
