      About this trip

      Come explore the Netherlands with GLT, the best way we know how!


      La Karavana is made up of three travel-loving women from the Netherlands who came up with the idea to turn a double decker bus into a driving & living experience! We will take to the road on a 6 day/5 night roadtrip around the Netherlands, with local guides to show us along the way. 


      We have filled this trip with unique Dutch experiences to give you a taste of what the Netherlands has to offer. Since we will be there at the start of tulip season and over Easter weekend, you'll get to welcome in spring with a variety of fresh blooms!

      This was my first GLT trip and it will not be my last! I didn’t know a single person beforehand but left with several new friends and travel buddies. We maximized our time in Guatemala and got to see and do so many incredible things like hike a volcano, make our own pierce of Jade jewelry, meet incredible Mayan women and learn about their trades (textiles, chocolate making, ceramics, midwifery and medicine). I was unfortunately delayed by a day in arriving due to severe weather, but the team handled it with grace and was helpful in providing documentation to my travel insurance. Haley even offered to get me some coffee beans as I would be missing that tour! I have many wonderful memories of Guatemala and the girls of GLT that I will cherish forever.

      I had a wonderful time! Enjoyed the entire unique experience of camping in this beautiful country with a bunch of sweet people. The sights, food and activities were great

      Two weeks later and I still cannot stop thinking about what an amazing trip this was and how much I want to go back! Yasser was the most incredible tour guide and honestly made the trip what it was. It was the perfect balance of hitting all the touristy landmarks and visiting hidden gems where you are able to feel immersed in the culture. The food- AMAZING. The people- so kind. I never once felt unsafe and felt truly cared for by our guide, our bus driver, and the hotel staff. Had I visited and planned the trip myself I would not have been able to appreciate the city as deeply, and it is 100% thanks to Yasser! Truly one of the best experiences of my life. If you're on the fence like I was about booking a trip, this is your sign to do it now! You won't regret it(:

      Amazing trip! This was my first group trip like this and I’m so glad I did it. The group of women I met were amazing. I did activities I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise, and they were all so much fun. Guatemala is absolutely beautiful and the culture is so cool. I’d 100% do this again.

      I really had no idea what I was in store for when I booked this trip. Egypt is on most of our “bucket lists,” so expectations were high. Before leaving, GLT makes everything seamless. Booking is easy, communication lines are open and responses are prompt. I also found the Facebook Group to be particularly helpful with the expertise of people who have either traveled to Egypt or have gone on GLT trips. The itinerary is thoughtfully curated to allow time for rest if you want (you won’t want, trust me!) or you can choose to go on other excursions. As soon as you land you’re met by an agent who guides you through customs and gets you in transportation to the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel it was close to 2a. Enter Yasser, our guide. He welcomed us with his warm smile even though it was early morning. We were impressed. I remember getting the feeling we were in good hands, but that was only the beginning. From day one you could tell Yasser was full of knowledge. He answered every question with love and passion. We were mesmerized by the stories he told us and we quickly became family. Everywhere we went Yasser knew someone. After a quick hello and a hug, Yasser’s friends would be on their way, but not before yelling things like, “you have the best guide” and “that’s my teacher. You’re very lucky!” As I write this, I can’t help but to smile. Yasser made this trip memorable. I felt extremely safe and loved the opportunity to meet new people and socialize. If you’re on the fence and thinking about going on this trip, don’t think! You’ll leave in awe of this magical country and you’ll leave with a new extended family member with the name of Yasser. You won’t be sorry.
