        From our current customers
        Culture Trip exceeded all my expectations for my trip to Egypt. The itinerary was a perfect combination of historical sites and cultural events - you truly get a feel of how the people live and the diversity of the culture and history. Each day had exciting activities that perfectly fit with each region of the country, and I was blessed to share this experience with 5 individuals who started as strangers and ended as good friends. 
        Cheryl (US)
        My first ever out-of-the-United States international trip, to Iceland with Culture Trip, was the best organized itinerary. Even with Iceland's weather being a bit unpredictable, and with only one slight change in plans, our small intimate group of ladies made the trip an experience I will never forget. Snowmobiling on a glacier, chasing waterfalls, feeling and seeing the black beach, eating geothermal rye bread, bathing in a geothermal hot tub, and ending the trip with the Blue Lagoon was exciting and breathtaking. 
        Rose (US)
        I was skeptical about signing up for a tour. I usually think tours were things my parents and grandparents going on tours and I usually plan my own trip. After our wedding, though, we didn't want to plan anything. Culture Trip changed our perception of tours. The group was younger and the activities were things I might have planned myself. There was a good mix of tourist attractions, off-the-beaten-path locations and varied activities. Our guide was amazing and added color at every step along the way. We are already thinking about which tour we'll do next.
        John (US)
        This was the first time we booked a tour and it was incredible. Culture Trip put together a very diverse itinerary which included biking, hiking, (tourist) boat ride, (local) ferry ride, tram ride, (local) bus ride. Small group made for quick and easy transfers. Our Local Insider/Tour guide was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic! Our next adventure will be with Culture Trip!
        Karen (US)
        The trip through Colorado and Utah was incredible! It was a brilliant whistle stop tour of all the highlights of the area, and was a perfect blend of adventure, road tripping and relaxing. What really made it was our local insider, Lana. Her knowledge, enthusiasm, tips and flexibility made it so that you could relax to enjoy the whole trip. It was a great way to travel and I would recommend!
        Ben (UK)
        The Iceland trip was Magical! The excursions were fun and adventurous. Snowmobiling on the glacier was like being on top of the world, the waterfalls are amazing and the food is delicious! This was a once in a lifetime trip that checked all the boxes. If you are looking for adventure this is the trip for you. I recommend going a few days early and hanging out in Reykjavik. It is a lovely and friendly city! 
        Lori (US)
        I don’t normally “do” tours so was dubious but the expertise of the local expert (& his back up at base) combined with the range of the itinerary really impressed me. I really went for the food element but the locations visited were spectacular and, as an independent traveler,I know it would have taken me weeks to cover a visit as varied as this.
        Catherine (UK)
        Egypt was the trip of a lifetime! Wonderful experience!
        John (US)
        The Culture Trip Greece tour was really amazing. [...] Our tour guide [...] was the most amazing tour guide I've had [...] She always made sure we were taken care of, that we had ideas for restaurants to try, or places to explore. [...] Overall a great trip with a really great and energetic group.
        Amber (US)
        Excellent Trip! Walter was an excellent guide. I loved what I did and saw in Portugal! Thank you!!
        Kathleen (US)
        Our Local guide was phenomenal and made us feel like we were traveling on the 'inside' while making sure all of our travel plans were taken care of. I now can't imagine traveling without this type of experience.
