    It takes lots of the stress out of traveling around the region. Meeting new people. And the local knowledge and helpfulness of the CEO

    It was nearly that what I expected. It was such a great experience with your company ond with all those open-minded people. I think it is a good possibility to create a new horizon in traveling.

    I love the 18 to 30 something trips as the activities are perfectly adjusted to the needs of this group. Also the idea of changing countries and places every few days is what I like the most about active holidays
