This is my third trip with Melanin Travel Tribe. New Orleans and the Essence Festival is a must-do! A great way to kick off my summer. I had a great time, and the food was excellent and bountiful. Wonderful people, great accommodations and an overall fantastic and positive experience. Sas, as always, was a great host. She offered recommendations of other things to do and see as well.

This was an awesome trip. The energy and vibes were top notch. The cabin was amazing! The grounds were awesome. Although we didn't get a chance to do all that was scheduled (due to weather and a cancelation), the weekend was still full of laughs and good times. Can't wait to see if this trip happens again! I'm very grateful to Sas for organizing this trip!!

I went on the San Fran & Napa Valley Summer Soirée trip. With absolute pleasure, I write this recommendation for Sas, who coordinated the trip, including the excursions, transfers to and from the tours, and hotel reservations. As Sas, as your host, I am sure  she will be able to attain the highest level of customer satisfaction and make sure your trip experience is amazing.

This was my first trip with the Melanin Travel Tribe and it was awesome! The tours, the sights, the food...oh the food! I loved the fact that we had set activities during the day but were free to do what we'd like afterwards. The sisterhood was felt while on this trip. The only thing I wish was having more time to enjoy San Francisco! I'm very grateful for the experience and can't wait to travel again with this tribe!
