This trip was breath taking, God's creation. Everyday was an adventure, an experience, a time to push me to my limits during the hikes. Words cannot describe how I felt when I conquered a hike. Firstly, I sign up with a tour company that I had very little knowledge of and they met all my expectations, plus more. I have never experienced anything like the experience that Haitian Nomad provided. From our Ambassador Cris, to our passionate tour guides, bus drivers and hotel accommodations. The unforgettable tours, delicious food, exciting cooking class experience and of course our travel group; I had one of the best times of my life. I used the words 'all I had to do was show up' and the rest was done for me. This tour or tour Peru #2 was amazing. I enjoyed every moment of it. I will never forget the experiences that I shared with wonderful people. Thank you Haitian Nomads and I hope to experience your tour(s) in the near future. Rhonda P

This trip superseded my exceptions by a long shot!! There's no way I would have been able to do have of the stuff we did on my own. Kiddos to Richard for creating this amazing travel community!
By Naika A for Peru # 2: The Lost city of the Inca on 04 Aug, 2022
Great experience! Knowledgable and passionate tour guides. Great culinary experience and fantastic choices of accommodations. Experiencing Peru and Machu Pichu with this group was a great experience. I definitely look forward to traveling with Haitian Nomad in the near future!
By Valerie B for Peru # 2: The Lost city of the Inca on 30 Jul, 2022
Peru was amazing!! This was definitely our most physical trip with the Haitian Nomad but it was so worth it!! Machu Picchu was breathtaking!!! Elevation sickness is real so make sure you are prepared (which we were told before the trip)! We met more new travel friends and got to see some old ones! Traveling with the Haitian Nomad is too easy and if you haven't done it yet you must!! You'll never want to plan your own trip again!! Great service and a wonderful trip!!! Another country checked off on our list with the Haitian Nomad!!

I have been traveling with Haitian Nomad since 2016. Within these 4 years they have built themselves a very solid reputation. I have recommended friends who came back with praising reviews. Originally centered on Haiti, they now have a global imprint with well-curated trips to discover the beauty and history of some dope locations. On Richard's trips, careful consideration is always taken for our security as well as our health. We see that illustrated even more in 2020 as we deal with the current pandemic. On our most recent trip, we made sure to be in complete compliance with both the US and Senegal by getting tested for COVID-19 before, during and after our trip. All of us left and came with back with negative results. As a healthcare provider, I felt in trusted hands the whole time and also did not feel that our group was compromising the health of the country we were visiting. The itineraries usually includes a mix of activity and relaxation (sometimes hardcore rejoicing at night lol). The best part is you always leave Richard's trips with unique travel experiences as well as lifelong friendships.

Short Version: Book with him ASAP I cannot recommend the Haitian Nomad enough!! My first trip, we'd returned from Cuba and after the experience, I was thoroughly impressed with Richard's trip. His trips are extremely well planned and a lot of thought and effort was put into ensuring everyone is having the time of their life. Richard pays attention to all the little details, is very organized, and adds a personal touch to the experience that you're not likely to get anywhere else. During our trip to Cuba, Richard organized a wonderful home-cooked rooftop dinner in the city of Trinidad and it was such a fun, unique experience. He made sure to take us around to the sights and helped us if we needed anything while on the trip. Prior to the trip, Richard provided us with all the necessary information leading up to the trip and gave us tips and suggestions on what to expect and other things to do as well. He is also open to feedback on how his service can be improved so he gets an A in customer service from me. Overall, it was the perfect trip and I couldn't have asked for more. So far I've been on about 5 or 6 trips (maybe more) and it exceeds expectations every time!
