It is all about adventure. That is what Exodus was founded upon and what the company is still all about. Discovering countries, cultures, environments, cities, mountain ranges, deserts, coasts and jungles; exploring this amazing planet we all live on.
At Exodus, they 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, Exodus always remembers that they are only guests. So Exodus travels courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise their impact, to ensure that every Exodus holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.
This is a philosophy they take with them around the world, helping you reach some incredible destinations on 500 itineraries across over 90 separate countries. Exodus also strives to provide as much flexibility and choice as they possibly can, making it simple for you to experience a very different holiday.
Exodus started life on 4 February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments.

You know you’re in good hands with Exodus. All their office staff have a passion for travel and adventure, and between them they've notched up experience that spans 171 different countries – all of which means they know how to give you the best experience when you travel with Exodus. They've even won awards for it.
That’s not all. In their former lives, their team members have been professional archaeologists, wildlife guides, overland drivers, mountain leaders, diving and ski specialists and mountain bike gurus – and Exodus uses their expertise to give you the very best adventure possible. Extensive planning, research, fact-finding and training are just some of the ways this expertise comes through in your adventure.
It is no exaggeration to say that their tour leaders can make a world of difference to the enjoyment of your holiday – so Exodus chooses them carefully. The result is that, in 2015, 97% of travellers said they would recommend Exodus to a friend. Where possible, they train and employ local leaders because they can provide invaluable insights that enrich the trip. What’s more, this investment in local staff really helps to benefit both them and their community.
Every year Exodus recognises the outstanding contribution of their leaders in their annual Tour Leader Awards. Their winners for 2015 are Rayselis (Cuba) and Alvaro (Spain) – find out more about them here.
