U30X Trip Reviews

"My friend and I agree that this is the best vacation we have ever been on and the best travel company we have ever experienced. There was not one moment of disappointment and I literally laughed until it hurt. Jonno ensured that everything we did was effortless and enjoyable. The accommodations were stellar, the staff was local, the excursions were unforgettable, and the other travelers enhanced the experience tenfold. I can't say enough good things. If you are even slightly considering traveling with this family of amazing people, do it." -Ana A.

"I truly amazing experience. I just came from the Costa Rica extended trip and loved every minute of it. Learning and experiencing the culture and meeting each individual really made an impact on my life. I went in to this hoping and expecting a lot (though I didn’t know what), and the entire experience exceeded all my expectations. The experiences on the trip were truly amazing, though the real satisfaction, for me, is the lasting impact each thing and person made in my life. I would be disappointed in myself if this were the last one I did." -Thomas A.

"I went on a trip to Belize with Under30Experiences 2 years ago and had an amazing experience! I got to experience a culture in the way that the locals do (because the Under30 team personally knows the locals!) and I also made life long friends. It is great for people that want to travel at an affordable rate and want to travel with others rather than do the solo thing! It also allows for you to take very minimal time of of work since most trips are over the weekend! I can't recommend this company enough. :) It's an amazing community to be a part of." -Brooke T.
