Being able to see different people, different cultures, different places causes to look at yourself and challenge what you believe that you want out of life. Travel and Fnez has given me an opportunity to step away from the daily grind back home and learn more about myself and other while seeing what this world has to offer. https://www.freeandeasytraveler.com/why-travel-free-easy/the-free-easy-family

Operator's comment: Happy you enjoyed the experience so much! And we agree that Kyle and Julia are a couple of wonderful people and anyone who travels with them are extremely lucky. As for your thoughts on the "heads up". We are always looking for ways to improve our service and would welcome any suggestions. Currently, when someone signs up for a trip with us they receive a "Your Trip" account where people can manage their trip requirements and receive updates. In there, we include the "Prep Guidebook" which outlines budget considerations as well as the prices for the extra activities. If you missed this, where would you like to have seen it to have made it easier to find? As for long travel days, we do our best to make those as easy as possible and to avoid early wake up times but sometimes you gotta bite the bullet to see those epic spots. We are happy that even with those annoyances you still gave us a great review and we hope to see you on another FNEZ adventure!
