It was an amazing trip for our daughter. The activities were great, lodging perfect for her group and she enjoyed the food. Green Edventures did a really good job rescheduling our trip and dealing with the COVID restrictions.

Our Green Adventures trip to the Baja peninsula and the Sea of Cortez was awesome. Tara, Fun Baja and the crew had everything organized and planned well. The educational experiences and interactions with nature were truly special. We had so much fun we can't wait to go again. Thank you Green Adventures.

The Baja Sur Mexico adventure was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I would strongly recommend for anyone. The crew and guides are wonderful at what they do. They are very knowledgeable and yet have the best personalities. The chefs made delicious meals 3 times a day and the restaurants we went to were clean and great too. The entire trip we felt safe and secure. I read every review about the trip ahead of time and they are all accurate. That is why Green Edventures is a 5 star!

Neysa!!! Thank you for the glowing review. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am happy that your first adventure with Green Edventures is the start of many more. (Tara)

It was incredible! Baja is beautiful, and camping on the beach was the most amazing thing ever. The interactions with the whales, the whale sharks, the sea lions.... everything was just so cool. Green Edventures (this is my second trip) does a great job of planning and coordinating logistics, providing necessary info, and basically, they do everything to make their trips perfect. The food is always great and lots of it, the local staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and of course, Tara the owner is fantastic. Additionally, I find that these trips attract a really interesting group of smart, self-sufficient women who are a pleasure to get to know. Both trips I have gone not knowing anyone else, and at the end, you have a whole new set of friends. If you want to go places, and don't have a travel buddy, Tara's trips would be perfect for you.

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
