What an incredible trip. One of the best tours I have ever taken. Christine put together a journey that beat all my expectations. She was fun to travel with and her enthusiasm and energy really made the trip special. Pakistan such an incredible place to explore, and Christine's tour made it even better. Definitely go to Pakistan, and definitely take a tour with Christine.

Trip was wonderful! From the original announcement to the actual arrival, Christine was proactive in ensuring participants had what was needed for documentation. Very easy to communicate with. Upon arrival, everything was well planned and organized. Variety of experiences were provided, including some that were unplanned but quite enjoyable. Plenty of interactions with locals were involved. Trip activity levels varied day to day. Safety was a priority the whole trip and was emphasized from the beginning.

What an amazingly epic adventure in Northern Pakistan! As someone who has subscribed to and watched Christine Kaaloa’s YouTube channel for several years, I was always struck by the high quality and authenticity of her content. So, when Christine announced that she was organizing a trip to Northern Pakistan, I knew that I had to be a part of the first Grrrltraveler Adventure. I am happy to say that the actual travel experience exceeded all of my expectations! From the moment I started filling out the vetting form and reviewing the trip itinerary and information forms, it was clear that the journey to Northern Pakistan was going to include a variety of unique activities and experiences. As someone who has enjoyed traveling the world for years, the itinerary was exciting. However, Christine also made it clear that the safety of her “travel crew” was also going to be a priority. In addition, our journey was going to be friendly to the environment and non-exploitive of the Pakistani people. Due to Christine’s incredible hard work, sheer determination and coordination with a Pakistan based tour operator, she was successful in finalizing the details of an epic journey and green lighting the Northern Pakistan adventure. The four seasoned travelers who joined Christine on the journey to Pakistan bonded almost immediately; Christine’s attention to detail ensured that this was going to be a once in a lifetime travel experience. Christine rounded out our “travel crew” with Anam, an amazing Pakistani tour guide who provided great insights (and an incredible Pakistani music playlist!) throughout our journey and Aadil, our talented driver. Aadil’s exceptional driving kept us safe and comfortable on all manner of roadways from busy paved highways to narrow dirt roads in villages we visited. Our coaster van comfortably accommodated the six passengers and our luggage. Christine arranged excellent meals, including street food tours. Our vegetarian members always had a nice selection of Pakistani dishes to choose from. Some of my favorite highlights included walking up the 1,650 steps to Ondra Fort, purchasing and wearing salwar kameez (traditional Pakistani clothing), seeing the glaciers and snow capped mountains of Pakistan, meeting scores of friendly Pakistani people who regularly welcomed me to Pakistan, participating in the clever scavenger hunt that Christine created, the amazing food tours in Islamabad and Lahore (I loved the grilled chicken livers and nihari!), and the inspiring Wagah Ceremony. However, one of my favorite experiences was just seeing Christine Kaaloa work! In addition to ensuring, with Anam, that our journey was running smoothly, Christine was creating content for her social media outlets. When viewing the final product on her YouTube channel and Facebook page, I could only imagine the work that went into it. Seeing the extent of her work in Pakistan—recording, interviewing people, switching between, cameras, GoPro, iPhone, etc. showed an incredible work ethic and professionalism that few people possess. She does all of this with a gracious, down to earth demeanor. Christine was always engaging with the members of our travel group and was always available to address any questions or concerns. From the announcement of the trip through our respective departures from Pakistan, Christine made sure that our needs were being met. Even after I arrived home, Christine contacted me to make sure my wife and I were not being impacted by the flooding that was happening in my State. It was a pleasure and honor to be a part of the inaugural Grrrltraveler Adventure trip. I have no doubt that Grrrltraveler Adventures will be yet another successful endeavor of Christine’s business enterprises. Thank you Christine!!!

Thank you for all the kind words, James - for myself, my Pakistani team and the adventure. I appreciate your sharing all your favorite moments with us too! We shared a lot of wonderful memories and your scavenger hunt journal was so touching! It's going to be a hard one for anyone else to beat. You are such a travel inspiration, James. I'm so proud of you for powering through that 1,650 stairs! It was sheer pleasure to have you as my first adventure crew/family -- we rocked Pakistan for the first time together!!! Don't be a stranger. Huge bear hugs and looking forward to crossing travel paths again! Next time, we must woo Audrey out.
