Quite often a woman is called a Diva based just on the way she carries herself. She's usually pretty stylish, or fly. She has designer shoes, handbags, and is always very well put together physically. But what does she look like on the inside? What is her thought life like? How is she feeling, emotionally AND physically? The Well Diva Lifestyle is a way of living well on the inside AND the outside. Join us as we create a life that is happy, healthy and fly.

What an AMAZING experience. From the very first moment I read the itinerary, I knew this was going to be a trip full of adventure and a whole lot of walking! I was looking forward to seeing the sights of Barcelona and learning the history and everyday life of Morocco and I DID just that! - It seemed a bit unorganized at times - The bus rides were long but sceanary was great - There were a few gaps in the trip - It's a long trip so BE SURE you know who your are traveling with YET... - The food was yummy - The sights and outings were fantastic - The Riads were each individually BEAUTIFUL - Most of the locals were nice and quite helpful - Felt safe all the time The best part outside of that was having the opportunity to meet 21 phenomenal women each different in their own way. From Doctors to Counselors to Moms. Each with a heart of Gold and a friendship I pray to carry on for a lifetime. Small fixes but I would definitely travel with this company again.
We had an AWESOME experience! The people were wonderful, accommodations were fantastic and the food was authentically delicious. We made great friends and memories!
I had a good time. I always try to enjoy all of my experiences. The hosts were friendly and kind. However, I feel things were pretty disorganized. It wasn’t what I’m used to. We didn’t necessarily do all of the things discussed. The itinerary wasn’t written well. I have an associate planning a similar trip in late 2019 and the full itinerary and activities are already set and laid out. The group was too large, but I probably wouldn’t have been able to go if it wasn’t. So I guess that’s not totally bad. We had a few days of mostly travel on a bus. The bus was nice, but took too much time. But, I’m assuming it was more cost efficient as opposed to flying. There were issues with food at times. Vegetarian vs carnivores caused confusion with orders. People who signed up to be vegetarian were eating meat and taking away from others. That’s was a bit of a mess and a sore spot for some. When various things went wrong, there didn’t seem to be an urgency to fix them. Overall, although it was disorganized, I really did enjoy the experiences planned for us. The fellowship was wonderful. Most of the accommodations were fine. I’d like to see perfected organization in the future. That would take things to the next level. The hosts put a great experience together. The excecution just needs to be fine tuned.
My comments disappeared. I would not go with this group again. The trip was exhausting, no down time. Group facilitator should have went on this trip before taking a large group. She was learning as we were.on our dollars.
The trip was wonderful. I'm glad i went. I enjoyed learning about Morrocco and seeing the "real Morocco". The Sahara deset experience was the highlight of the tripto me! The bus rides were numerous but the bus was extremely comfortable. Seeing the sights as we drove was helpful. I was happy with all accommodations including all the riads. In the future having set money pick ups and postoffice drop offs built into the itenerary will be helpful and more efficient. To add more time in each city inter country flights could be utilized where applicable. I will be recommending this trip to family and friends.
