Mixed weather meant some cloudy days but views of the Tyrol were lovely on the good days. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The rooms were a good size and had a balcony to sit on to enjoy the views. Very quiet at night. The evening meals were 4 courses and ample. No nouvelle cuisine here. Vegetarian meals were available each evening. The packed lunches from the hotel worked well as the nearest shop was a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The level 3 walks had a stop for coffee and cakes on most days. Be prepared to go on a diet when you get home! The first 2 walks for the level 3 were the least challenging and were mainly on forest tracks so the views were restricted. The last 3 walks were the best for views. The Achensee travel pass was a good way to see the area by public transport.
       
A very good week. Great group of people with a good choice of excellent, well lead walking. The Hotel was a generally good for the grade, I'd have no problem staying in this hotel again. Whilst the evening meals are perfectly OK, they could be improved (see below), hence the less than excellent overall rating. I'd happily do this holiday at this hotel again.
       
A fantastic experience, great hotel and food with friendly staff. Two knowledgeable and great guides, who made it all flow like a dream. Superb walks at two levels with Great views when weather permitted. Definitely a must do.
       
It's easy to see why Exodus customers keep coming back for more - knowledgeable and friendly guides, stunning scenery, comfortable accommodation and a brilliantly eclectic group of fellow guests is a winning combination. Both Bob and Paul were full of information about all the flora and fauna we saw, and led us at a comfortable pace through varied mountain scenery. The hotel staff are outstandingly friendly and helpful, and our large double room with scenic balcony was far better than many grander hotels. The way we used our travel pass to get around by buses, cable cars, boat and train was most enjoyably green, and allowed us to sample the mountains in all directions. Even the decidedly iffy weather on 4 out of 6 days didn't spoil the fun!
       
I don't normally have time to give feedback but no way I wasn't going to after this wonderful trip! I can honestly say I don't think my experience could have been better from first picking up the phone to discuss the Walking in the Austrian Tyrol trip to flying home and saying goodbye to such a lovely group of people and new friends. I chose Level 3 walks as was not at my full fitness level which were brilliantly led by Graham. A great companion on all the walks. Paul led the Level 5 walks which again were much enjoyed by his group. Both were fabulous hosts to our week. I personally would have been suited to a Level 4 (if there was such a level) but appreciate that wouldn't be possible. The hotel and food were excellent and set in a beautiful location. So sincere thanks Exodus - very much looking forward to my next trip. Definitely the holiday for me!
       
The best Exodus trip I have done to date. Inspirational hiking in breathtaking scenery mixed with exceptional hilarity in outstanding company. The Austrian weather gods blessed us with virtually uninterrupted sunshine, epic and varied vistas on every trek, complimented by authentic Tyrolean cuisine and hospitality. The trip makes excellent use of the local travel card, including the ferry and steam train. The itinerary is well thought out to allow the day to run efficiently, meaning there is enough time for post-hiking swimming in the beautiful Achensee and relaxation in the sauna before dinner. A great week in every respect.
       
Each day's hike offered different terrain, different challenges, different views...and different cakes. Eric was a wonderful guide. And this group was the most fun I've had through Exodus!
       
Achenkirk provided an excellent base for a great week of hiking in the Tirol. We got a great flavour of the area sampling a range of walks around the range. The Lake, the mountains and the accessibility of excellent walking made the trip. Weather for the most part was great and the terrain was challenging but manageable to walk on. Really enjoyed the hotel and facilities as well.
       
This was a lovely week of great walks amid stunning scenery in the Austrian Tyrol. Based in Achenkirk, we were able to access many of the best mountain walks available using cable cars, lake steamers etc as well as our own feet! We had 2 very friendly and knowledgeable guides-Paul & Eric, 1 for each level of walking and a comfortable base at Hotel Fischerwirt. A really nice week and a great group.
       
Fabulous time - stunning scenery - we were very lucky with the weather. Our guides were great, Bob and Paul. My group's guide was Bob - very knowledgable and thoughtful. The Hotel was comfortable and the food great (only spoilt by one or two grumpy waitresses!). I have to say that I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
       
Exquisite scenery, knowledgeable guides, great walks, lovely hotel, fun and friendly people - what more can you ask? This was a most memorable holiday and I highly recommend it. The trip was very organised, leaving you to just relax and not worry about the details. The hikes were well planned and took you to places of incredible beauty. A level of fitness is recommended for both levels of hikes which can consist of steep ascents/descents, some rock scrambling, and traversing areas of snow. The hotel was very comfortable and the food plentiful. The hotel was very accommodating in preparing vegan meals for me but the choice was limited. The guides, Bob and Paul, were very knowledgeable about the area and sensitive to people's capabilities and needs.

This holiday has it all - great walks, scenery, guides, hotel, food... highly recommended! I didn't have any particularly high expectations of the holiday after reading the brochure and booking it, but I was pleasantly surprised, it's very well thought out and location is excellent. I did the challenging walk each day guided by Paul, these were well planned, and even with some clouds on occasion, the views were stunning and there was an abundance of alpine flowers. The hotel is well located right on the lake, with comfortable rooms. The food is no-nonsense but very good and plentiful, which I appreciated after a day's walking, and has lots of choice in the menu. There were wheat-free options for evening meals and breakfast, and they even gave me gluten free bread each day to make sandwiches with for lunch.
       
Lovely walking in good company with great leaders, good food and comfortable hotel. The group was split into level 3 and level 5 graded walks. We did the level 3 walks and found them excellent. The weather was mixed but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Cake cafes featured prominently in the itineraries. Wild flower identification was a hot topic.
