Exodus
At Exodus, we love adventure travel and always have. Discovering countries, cultures, environments, cities, mountain ranges, deserts, coasts and jungles;...more exploring this amazing planet we all live on. We know what makes you tick when it comes to holidays. It’s a desire shared by so many others. 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, we always remember that we are only guests. So we travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise our impact, to ensure that every Exodus holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.

Great time in Germany and more     , SA, Australia, Sep 2023
Tina and Salvatore made our tour in Germany and Eastern Europe so easy. We saw so much, including lots of art galleries, without the hassle of getting places. Enough free time to do what we wanted and always a great orientation of each place we stayed in. The hotels were comfortable but this came at the cost of being further out from the city centre. ...read more Nothing was too much trouble for our Tour Director- she cared for each person and obviously enjoys people and her job. I would travel Cosmos again in preference to any other tour group.

Truly magical   , VIC, Australia, Aug 2023
I don't have the words to describe how wonderful this trip was every day brought a new highlight. Our tour guide (Matt) was every engaging and insightful. Only downside was it is VERY expensive more so than I expected but even that didn't spoil the experience nor beauty.
