Going on this trip with Eleazar was amazing and would 100% go on another trip with him as the leader! Well organized itinerary that was thought out and executed with great communication prior and during the trip. Felt as is I knew him as long lost friends reconnecting for an amazing vacation. Iceland was a beautiful country and Eleazar was even willing to take photographs and videos with his camera and drone. If you have the opportunity to take a trip with him I highly recommended it!


Iceland with Eleazar Salcido

Sarah was a great host! Lots of communication between her and the group of girls I went with, so when we all met up it felt like we were already friends. She was super knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions before and during the adventure! Everyone was able to break off and do whatever we wanted in our down time, some went out for nightlife while others stayed back in and relaxed at the super nice hostels she picked out. Met some awesome girls during my travels with Sarah and I would love to visit Costa Rica again with the knowledge she shared! 🏝️🏝️


Costa Rica with Sarah Walsh

The Sicily trip was a good experience. Monica is a very friendly and communicative person who created a good mood during the trip. The trip itself was well organized and included relaxing on beautiful beaches as well as various local experiences (making typical Sicilian food, chocolate tasting) and sightseeing.


Sicily with Monica Gennarini

Maria is a great person. The trip was perfectly planned and we saw a lot during the week. It was a very good mix of adventure, hiking and road trip. We also had a lot of fun and laughed a lot. 😂
I would do another trip with Maria in a heartbeat.


Iceland with Maria Schoenfeld

Friendly, funny, punctual and really good behind the wheel. She picked is all up from the airport and dropped us off on our desired locations. She made good food suggestions, and helped us with out order and interactions.


Italy with Valentina

This was one of the best trips I have ever had! Everything was so well organised, so many great activities with good vibes all the way!This might not be the trip for passive people who love lying on the beach only. This is an active vacation and that's exactly what I needed. Filippo is an amazing guy, with smile on his face all the time :) He introduced us with the local life of Ericeira and vibes of the city!I'll join Filippo's trips in the future for sure!


Portugal with Filippo Galli

Bali with Candra

The perfect experience for someone open-minded who wants to make new friends and try out new sports and activities, organized perfectly and Filippo is basically a friend that drives you around this place giving you the best vibes possible of a super cool location;To me this experience was just an holiday that became way more, created friendship and new hobbies to share and lots of desire to travel more!


Portugal with Filippo Galli
