"I had an affordable trip of a lifetime thanks to U30X, made new great friends, and joined an expansive and powerful alumni network." -Colby R.
"I just returned from my first trip with U30X 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 would give Under30Experiences more than 5 stars out of 5 if I could." -Emily C.
