"I just finished the Thailand trip with under30 and it was honestly the best trip of my life!! It was so well planned, the leaders were fun and down to enjoy every bit of the trip with us. It was so nice that everything is planned for you. All you had to do is show up and they gave you amazing opportunities to do all these fun things on your trip. I’m sad I’m home and it’s over, but will do another under30 trip in a second!" -Danielle B.
"I just got home last evening from a trip to Thailand and I have to say that amazing is a huge understatement. I cannot put into words how much gratitude I have for this experience and to express how much this amazing country has given to me. Away from personal experience, if you are reading this as someone who’s looking to looking into going abroad, you absolutely need to book with Under30. I’ve used another company in the past and I have to say that the company you book with makes a LOT of difference. Everyone on my trip was fantastic. If you’re afraid of going on a group trip, I was too. I didn’t think anyone would understand me or that I’d have much in common and I was pleasantly proven wrong. Though everyone has diverse backgrounds, you’re going to find something in common with everyone and you’re never alone on the trip." -Lauren A.
"Recently came back from Thailand with under30 and I’m so glad I decided to go on this trip. This was my first trip like this and the farthest I have ever traveled. Tim and Tor made everyone feel so comfortable and were so welcoming! There’s no way I would have planned and done all the activities that we did and I’m so happy I decided to travel this way. I had so many great experiences and formed awesome friendships. This will definitely not be my last trip with Under30!" -Camille S.
