    Lake Garda & Como

    Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and the guide Laura went above and beyond to make the trip a success, especially when faced with challenges from the weather and transport. Her whole management of the trip was exceptional - caring, engaging and entertaining. What a lovely girl - Exodus is fortunate to have her working with them. There was a good balance of planned activities, however, over-use of public transport did impact somewhat on enjoyment - it's great to experience local transport, however, it really took up too much time on planned trips and cut down on the amount of time we could spend at venues.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Mainly the friendships struck up in the group and coming to appreciate the warm welcome offered by the Italian hosts. A fantastic get-together on our last night on Lake Garda with local entertainment giving us a lasting memory of these lovely hotel owners.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Absolutely faultless. A wonderful girl with a lovely sense of humour who dedicated every waking hour to looking after us and making sure we got the most from our trip in spite of the rain.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Go for it! Learn even a tiny bit of Italian, it does help!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Please look again at the transport - I will certainly look at travelling with Exodus again but will look more carefully at the itinerary next time

    Italian Lakes

    A good split of 4 nights on Lake Garda at the comfortable and friendly Hotel Sorriso, just a few yards from the lake promenade and 3 nights at the Lungalago Hotel on Lake Como, a busier more cosmopolitan town resort. The part of Lake Garda where we stayed appeared more serene and gentle with pretty lakeside paths, family campsites, swimming areas and easy access by local buses and ferries to other parts. Hospitable pizzerias, bars and of course, gelato, gelato and more gelato. Enjoyable walks to Malcesine and cultural visit to Verona. Lecco, on Lake Como is seemed far removed from the major honey pots of Bellagio and Como so trains or buses are required to reach these areas which can be problematic when strikes prevail. The town itself was busy as schools had finished for the summer, lots of cafes and designer shops to tempt.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I wouldn't say inspirational but fun.......making pizza at The Sorriso. Pizza Hut - watch out!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Laura - a true professional, caring, considerate, a lovely demeanour and fun to be with.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Whilst the programme is leisurely there are a couple of walks up to small chapels and castles high above the lakes but take your time the views are worth it. As Laura reminds us: P for patience - the Italians don't hurry! Prepare to put on weight.
