"U30X is awesome! I went on the Mexico/Belize trip and everything went very smooth. The staff were great, the accommodations and trip planning were solid, and all of the other travelers were super friendly. There is a certain culture that U30X exudes and kind of sinks into everyone while on the trip, which helps to create some very cool memories and friendships. I would highly recommend trying them out - and if you have any questions, just ask their staff (they were very patient with me)!" -Dave B.
"I just returned from my first trip with U30X (to Mexico and Belize) and had a wonderful experience. I'm already looking to book my second one! The trip was so fun, the staff was great, and the people I met were amazing. The trip was well planned, organized, and executed. If you're on the fence about booking a trip, DO IT. It's 100% worth it. If you have any questions, definitely reach out to the staff. They love what they do, so they love talking to interested travelers." -Maggie T.
"I went to Belize with U30X and it was one of the best trips I have taken! The guides are awesome and were very knowledgeable about the area and the country, the people in my group were amazing and the activities were so much fun. The value is great as well! The hotel we stayed in was very nice and clean, and the restaurants they took us to were so good! I highly recommend going on a trip with them!" -Jessica A.
