"Went on my first U30X trip (France) with Tour Guide Jesse James and had the greatest time! Learned so much about French culture, cuisine, wine and met some really wonderful people. Everything about this trip is as authentic as it gets, something I would not be able to have experienced if I just went as a tourist. I highly recommend this trip to anyone that enjoys meeting new people and immersing themselves in a new culture." -Scott L.
"Just got back from the France food and wine tour and I could not be happier. Marion was the best guide and friend we could have asked for during our stay in Paris and the countryside! The group was amazing and we are def planning a reunion for another U30X tour soon, we just can’t get enough! The food was tasty, the wine was delicious, the whole experience exceeded my expectations! Highly recommend!" -Michelle C.
"I just got back from my first U30X trip in France, and I can definitely say that it won't be my last! Shout out to our awesome trip leaders, Marion and Delphine, for leading such a great trip! I really enjoyed exploring the nearby towns and learning more about French culture and history. My favorite part of the trip (aside from all of the delicious food & wine) was the scenic bike ride along the Burgundy Canal. I highly recommend this trip and U30X!" -Emely P.
