Miranda "Des was incredible! Always full of energy and did an amazing job of keeping everyone in good spirits! He also really cared about making sure absolutely everyone felt like they fit in and could be themselves, whereas many other leaders could have easily just given their attention to a smaller, more popular segment of the group. I think a lot of people really appreciated his efforts of inclusivity..."

    I went to Costa Rica and Nicaragua with Mike at LBW. It was my first time going on a trip that wasn't a resort style and it was amazing. Mike was very knowledgeable about the locations we visitied and always had an upbeat attitude. He had lots of great things planned and knew all the hidden gems that we probably wouldn't have got to enjoy if we didn't travel with him. He really helped make our experience a great one and I would definitely do another tour with him.

    Hey Tori! We are so stoked to hear you left the resort style type of holiday to give a backpacking tour with LBW a go! If you haven't traveled like this before then it can be slightly daunting, however we know that once you get out there and break down those comfort zones then it is SOOOOO worth it! We try our best to make each experience as amazing as possible, and without our incredible tour guides this wouldn't be achievable - Mike is a fantastic tour guide and hearing how much of a positive affect he had on your adventure with us fills us with joy, thank you for that :) Welcome to the family and keep on exploring! We hope to see you again soon :)

    Mike was a great enthusiastic guide who you could tell had a passion for his job and travelling. He was knowedgable about the area we were visiting and the history behind it. Mike made an effort to get to know everyone and spend time with each person on the tour ensuring their comfort and safety. He kept the tour fun and lively and made an effort to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Highly recommend mike!

    I went to Costa Rica and Nicaragua with mike, it was a great trip. Hostels were all really good, clean and in excellent locations. Mike had a lot of fun things planner during the trip and knew where to find the secluded places, like the surf beach we went to and our group were the only people there. It was way better then I could have imagined and I would totally go on another tour with Mike

    I've been on several tours with LBW and I have LOVED everyone. The experience has always been amazing and I'll always have memories that'll last a life time. I had Mike as a guide on my last trip and he was awesome. He has a ton of knowledge about honestly everything. He is a ton of fun and is kind to everyone. I recommend LBW to everyone ! It is an amazing way to travel and meet people!

    I had no expectations going into this trip other than to take a vacation and meet new people. From the beginning the tour guides Jorge and Des instantly made it so fun. It really felt like a family and I know that I made friends that I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life. The group was amazing and Des really went out of his way to make sure we were always having fun while encouraging us to step out of our comfort zone and challenge ourselves. He was never afraid to share his story and passions for traveling and expressed that his hope was for us to reflect on our own lives to make sure we were living the best life we could and if we weren't what can we do to make sure that we do from this point forward.
    Life Before Work Travel commented on this review
    Hey Laura! Thank you so much for taking the time out to leave a review, and what a lovely review it is! To have no expectations of a situation can be one of life's biggest gifts because you're able to give yourself fully to whatever is going on. To take a vacation is something that everyone needs, but to travel, truly travel, and become so close with strangers that they end up feeling like family is something magical that can't be found on a normal vacation. Des is absolutely right, you must challenge yourself to live a life you REALLY enjoy, and if you're not then you must be brave enough to make positive steps forward to change your life for the better. We are so pleased you joined us, met Des and Jorge, became a part of our family and enjoyed a trip that will hopefully impact the rest of your life! Keep adventuring, keep questioning and we hope we will see you again :)

    This trip was better than I ever could have expected. We were so lucky to have a guide like Des. He made sure everyone felt included and important. He was knowledgable and always willing to help with any issues and I'm sure everyone was comfortable going to him. Part of the reason all the people we travelled with are such good friends still is because Des was so good at bringing us all together. I would, and have been, highly recommending this trip with him ever since I got home!

    Des, has made multiple trips into great memories for me. Talk about being around a great person who is always uplifting and super hard working! I had the honor of being apart of Des's first tour as a guide. Since then I have been on two other tours with him. Over that time I have noticed his dedication to the company and his willingness to improve. I have already recommended several people to go and experience one of the amazing tours that Des runs with LBW and will continue to pass it along.
