U30X Trip Reviews

"I just got back from my 2nd trip with Under30. I can not say it enough.. this group is incredible. True authentic experiences in some of the most amazing places. Under30 allows you to truly enjoy a new place without the stress of planning activities & transportation. Under30 also welcomes you to a great community, full of great people. I have had the pleasure of meeting some extraordinary people on both of my trips. Special shout out to Lindsey (my Bali trip leader). Lindsey you are awesome! Under30 is lucky to have you (as well as everyone on all of your trips)." -Joanna M

"Under30experiences has been such an incredible life changing experience! There's so many positive things about this fantastic group of people. That said, I've love to travel but it's not easy finding people to join you internationally. Under30experiences has allowed me to fulfill my wanderlust by having an array of destinations you can go and you'll meet like minded people from around the country that accompany you on these trips. The trip leaders are fantastic as well, truely the most caring and unforgettable people. The trips are very safe, organized and packed full of adventure from the time you step off the plan until departure. I've already been to Bali and Colombia and I'm excited for Peru, France and Iceland this year with the group. Additionally, what's nice about these trips, is you do them in just a few days if you don't have a lot of vaca and over a holiday. Definitely recommend Under30Experierces to anyone who loves to travel and needs great people to experience it with." -Ashley H.

"I wouldn't be the man I am today if it weren't for following my gut and going on the trip to Costa Rica. I have met so many amazing and influential people through my association with U30X. Matt And Jared and the rest of the team make trips that are 100% designed to bring a small group of likeminded people together so they can experience the world in a different way. I have been to Costa Rica, Belize and Iceland with U30X. I have also travelled to Lake Tahoe, NYC, Nicaragua, San Francisco and Amsterdam with people I have met through trips. Friends for life that I can count on. If you're new to travel, check them out. Pura Vida and Go Slow!!!" -Andrew M.
