“I have traveled alone and in groups to over 50 countries. BJ and Lauren are absolutely the best tour leaders and tour planners I have encountered.”

“These are the people I want to travel with again. I was better prepared for and taken care of than with any of the other six international trips I have taken in the past twelve years.”

“I was relaxed the whole trip and at no time did I have to engage my personal ‘traveling radar’ to feel safe. They are incredibly competent and I felt not only very safe but very well cared for for the entire trip.”

“Any hesitation traveling solo melted away because Lauren and BJ did a fantastic job ensuring our safety, health, and making everyone feel welcome.”
