This was such a fantastic experience! I thought that everything was organized well, from the communication in the weeks leading up to the trip to the tours and other daily activities. Everyone on the trip was so kind, friendly and outgoing, and that was what made the trip the amazing experience that it was. :)

Absolutely amazing! This was my first time travelling with a tour group and it couldn’t have been any more perfect. I loved how every experience felt very personalised and well thought out. The organisation was seamless - everything from accommodation to transportation was perfectly handled. Definitely worth every cent.

This was my first global meet up with Girl Gone International and it most definitely won't be my last! Everything was planned to the T! Violet was great, she was informative, welcoming and definitely went the extra mile in making this one of the best trips I've ever been on. The best part about exploring beautiful Barcelona was doing so with 18 other women from all over the world. I definitely recommend Girl Gone International Trips to any woman looking to explore, meet new friends and enjoy a well organised vacation!
