    Where to begin, Life Before Work are unparalleled to anything else I've experienced. The high levels of energy and uplifting spirits that follow the tours of are something special. This all stems from the high caliber of people that are hired. After numerous tours in many parts of the world I will continue to join them and bring friends along to introduce them to the experience the lifelong memories and friends that come into my life.

    Des is always a friendly face, he's the life of the party and always makes sure his compadres are having a good time. If your solo and hesitant/nervous about traveling go on tour with Des; You'll be glad you did. He's a legend.

    I took my first trip out to Panama with LBW. Registration was always up to date as the tour came close to departure. First week was Island life but it was the first time the company held the event. For a first time traveler they were always willing to help me out from what stuff to pack to knowing how to get to the greatest spots. I would describe island life like a festival event on one small island surrounded by clear calm oceans and beautiful weather. There was alot of people to manage for LBW so check-in and traveling to the place felt a little chaotic but LBW made sure everyone got there safely. As for the event the company made sure that there was always something to do and to make sure the island was treated with respect including the locals that lived there. The workshops and the village Museum were amazing. Food was always served in full plates if you can handle Island lifestyle food. For a first time event not bad at all. Second part of the trip was called the Bocas breeze. This was a smaller group lead by my guide name Des. Arriving to our destination was managed well and the hotspots were described to us as we head to our hostile. Athough when we were about to do our first tour activity I lost track of the group but Des was able to track me down and we were able to continue our day from there. The rest of the tour Des made sure we were informed of times for group activities and made sure that everyone was enjoying themselves. I was impressed with how much local connections he had us meet and can't tell how much time I spent with them through out the rest of the trip. I would say that for the style of how the company runs is definitely in the millennial generation. Activities and festivals by day, party theme by night but the main part is you are meeting and socializing with people. Though anybody else that signs up for there tour is always free to do whatever​ they want to make the trip more enjoyable and LBW makes sure you get that enjoyment. I could always say that there can be improvements to make the trip a little better for a LBW client but I was able to have a great experience overall.

    I went to IslandLife and it was my first LBW trip. It was much more than just a party; it was a learning experience. More activities than I expected and met some of the best people in the world.

    I did LBW's Bocas Breeze your with Desmond as my guide this year. He's such a fantastic guide.. making sure everyone is enjoying the experience and getting to know each other, constantly making us laugh, giving us great food suggestions, and stressing our safety. he's organized and has such a fun personality. I'd hope to get him as a guide on another tour!

  • Marcia9th August 2018
    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
