"The Under30Experience Spain trip was beyond my expectations. Eric and Rebecca made sure the trip was exactly what each of us wanted it to be. We were a tight family by the end of the trip and I was very sad that it was over so quickly. I left with new friends as well as a new love of tapas and the Spanish culture. It was the perfect combination of tourist experiences and off the beaten path adventures. I highly recommend this personalized, reasonable, life changing experience! Thank you U30X!" -Sarah F.
"I just got back from 9 amazing days in Spain. This was my first trip with under30 and the trip far exceeded my expectations. I write this teary-eyed with gratitude. Rebecca and Eric, our group leaders, were awesome. They were fun and playful yet responsible, knowledgeable, patient, supportive and kind. I felt like I was in good hands at all times—in fact we all started calling them mom and dad by the end of the trip! I couldn't have asked for a better group to see the world with :)" -Jennifer B.
"If you're reading my review, my guess is that you're probably deciding if you should click the "submit" button on your Under30Experiences tour. My answer in short; stop second guessing and click that submit button. I just returned to the US after an extensive tour through Spain with Under30. It exceeded my expectations and I hope to be able to take future tours with them. If you are someone that craves a solo international trip but doesn't feel quite ready, or wants to make some guaranteed friends along the way, this is the company for you! I have already been spreading the word about Under30Experiences to many of my friends and I plan to continue doing so." -Ben K.
