I wanted to thank you for organizing such an incredible experience in India and Nepal. From my perspective, logistics were seamless and you both were extraordinarily accommodating. I wanted for nothing on the trip and felt like I could trust you even to the point of taking a break from “thinking” for a while since you took care of everything so well. From food to excursions to ensuring our comfort (including accommodating individually nuanced ‘needs’), you bent over backwards for us. You were also there just to hang out with us, which is nice for those of us traveling alone. You succeeded in setting a tone of inclusiveness and love (congruent with your personalities). Thank you from the most sincere confines of my heart for making this experience so special for me. Sherise F.

What our Guests have to say….

(Click here to read these testimonials and more!)

“BJ and Lauren covered every detail before and during the tour, from packing lists to helping with flights and eating safely. We were nurtured the whole way and we had FUN….” 
“A trip with BJ and Lauren is like being on a luxury cruise, but better! Everything is taken care of and all you need to do is show up and go along for the ride….”
“Nothing has been too much trouble for them; they have bent over backwards for us, like having your mum and dad look after you!”
“Traveling with BJ & Lauren is like traveling with young grandparents—they cannot spoil you enough and every day is a wondrous adventure…”
“You could search the planet to try and find better tour leaders but it would be near impossible. They are so genuine and caring and attract really good people to support them on tour. They leave smiles and good will wherever they go….”
“I’ve been to 6 continents (not Australia as yet) and many tours and cruises. This trip rates as one of the best, if not THE best, I’ve ever been on. The cost for the tour—room, food, activities—was ridiculously low…”
