Most Inspirational Moment
The visit to Aycanda(?) and subsequent walk from the mountain plateau down to the plains. Beautiful. Though the beach at Patara was invigorating. There wasn't a day I didn't enjoy and gain from.
Thoughts on Group Leader
Hatice was our group leader and in my view was outstanding. She's funny, knowledgeable, friendly, endlessly polite and patient and almost certainly the only group leader to lead her kayaking group in singing "Row, row, row your boat' a cappella, in rounds, while waiting for the last of the kayaks to catch up. Some Americans thought this odd, but we enjoyed it. If Exodus is looking for a better group leader, they'll have to try hard.
Advice for Potential Travellers
There's plenty to do if you want to be busy after walks- Turkish baths, pleasant town and shops , good restaurants. Plus plant of activity type stuff if you find a day by the pool tedious!
My only gripe is the hotel. All the staff were delightful- nothing too much trouble, friendly and helpful. However, the hotel itself desperately needs a thorough make over, being very tired and a bit run down. It's clean and there are swimming towels provided, but really nothing else. My shower leaked like a tsunami, and I don't think standing in a puddle of water while using a hairdryer is terrific. However, using my post swim towel solved this, but not vg.
The pool and terrace were very pleasant, but you need to think again about the fabric of this hotel, Exodus.
