"I honestly cannot say enough about my experience to Ireland with this group! Currently sitting in the airport on my way home and can’t stop thinking about how perfect it was. Somehow they put 11 completely different people on a trip and made us feel like a family. Eric was my team leader and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better! They have amazing relationships with the local businesses and restaurants and you can tell they trjoy care about the countries they visit. I can’t wait for my next trip" -Darbi F.
"I attended the Ireland trip, and it was AMAZING. We went all around the country exploring the county side, castles, cliffs, city life, live music...the list goes on and in and it was ONLY 7 days. It was my first time out of the country and I think it was the best way to travel if you are new at adventuring outside of your area. It's also very reasonably priced. I loved the group I went with. Our leader, Lindsey, was amazing! She was kind, giving, and genuinely nice person to be around. Couldn't ask for a better experience. I'm already planning out when I can go on another trip and I just got home" -Gabi K.
"I just finished Exploring Ireland with Under30Experiences and it was a spectacular trip! The leaders did an excellent job of guiding our group and still giving enough free time for us to explore independently. It was also great to go on a trip abroad and not have to stress about planning it. The camaraderie our group had right from the start made the trip that much more enjoyable. I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with all the new friends I made and going on another trip with Under 30 Experiences soon. I can't recommend them highly enough!" -Eric M.
