"I went with U30 on the Ireland, Scotland, London trip and it was THE BEST experience ever!!! I knew it would be good but it totally went beyond my expectations! Our group leaders Lauren and Rebecca felt more like friends than just "trip leaders". They were so knowledgeable about where to go and ideas for what to do with our down time. It was the perfect mix of planned activities and then choosing things we wanted to do.From listening to live music on the streets of Galway to hiking in the Highlands, I loved all of it. It's crazy how complete strangers come to be like your family by the end of a trip like this! I'm already planning all the other places I want to go with U30. If you're at all thinking about doing a trip, DO IT! You won't regret it." -Kari R.
"I went on the Ireland, Scotland, and London trip. It was an amazing trip with some amazing people. The guides from u30x, Eric and Marion, were not only knowledgeable but a lot of fun to be around. They really did a great job of making the trip feel more like a "family vacation" than a trip with 14 random strangers. My wife and I went on this trip but he majority of the people in our group were single travelers. All of us made some great friends and never felt uncomfortable or left out. U30x is truely a great company and I have already suggested them to at least 6 of my friends." -Greg R
"Under30 is amazing!! I went on my first trip with them this year to Ireland, Scotland, & London and it completely exceeded my expectations. Everyone got along so well and the best part was how active the trip was - the hikes in the Scottish Highlands were especially breathtaking. The food and accommodations included were all great and way higher in quality than I was expecting. Also our group leaders, Delphine and Angelo, were AWESOME and so supportive/helpful/upbeat/funny. Overall it was one of the best vacations I've ever taken; I'm already looking at their other trips to see which I'd like to go on next year!" -Madeline W.
