    LBW was an awesome experience that I always recommend to my friends. It was my first real experience with travelling, and because it was so much fun, I've been hooked ever since. Not only is it an amazing way to meet new people and have a great time, its also a truly meaningful and enriching travel experience. Our tour guides were warm, welcoming, and you could always rely on them. Truly an unforgettable trip!

    Absolutely amazing tour for any young adult looking for a balanced travel experiance! lots of flexibility and options when it came to free time. Transportation was reliable and efficient, the accommodations were also nice and clean. Overall a very comfortable trip. Tour guides knew what they were doing and kept everyone as happy as possible. You could tell the trips have been well thought out by the company from their diverse location choices that truly give you a good taste of all the great parts about traveling. There is something for everyone.

    The trip I took with Mike as our trip leader was amazing! Very welcoming, friendly environment. It was to always have everyone so included in all activities and feel like a big loving family by the end. Every bit of it was beyond memorable, and I'm looking forward to my next opportunity to travel with LBW again

    Desmond was only on his second tour group when I arrived in Nicaragua and you would think the guy had been doing it for his whole life. He already knew so much about the culture and all the places that our group travelled too. Along with all his knowledge of every place on the tour, Des was also one of the funniest guys I've met. Definitely would hang out with him if he wasn't travelling the world working for LBW! Would love to have him as a tour guide on my next adventure

    Des was one of my tour guides for my first LBW tour. Not knowing what to expect meeting 10+ new people and spending everyday for the next 3 weeks with them, had me a little nervous. But Des is a natural leader and his congenial attitude makes you instantly feel like part of the family. Des is a social chameleon and enthusiastic to take you on a tour you won't forget!

    Really enjoyed my tour guides, they were super fun! Accommodations were great in some places, not so great in others but that is what I expected travelling Central America. Was nice to have the security of people looking out for you and ensuring you were on safe transportation.
    Life Before Work Travel commented on this review
    Hey Katie! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your tour guides whilst on the Central Adventure tour. Feeling safe and secure whilst travelling with LBW is one of the quality's we strive for - to travel abroad can be quite daunting so feeling comfortable with who you're travelling with and how you're getting from place to place is super important to us, and we're so pleased to hear your positive feedback! We hope to see you on another LBW tour one day :)
