      Australia was my first BBT trip and I could not have asked for a better experience. Jeremy, Paula, and Fairlie were incredible leaders, and were so easy to communicate with throughout the entire trip. There was a great balance of sightseeing/free exploration time in both Sydney and Airlie Beach, and then we couldn't have gotten a better hometown welcome while visiting Bowen. We spent 3 days visiting schools and making connections with so many educators. Truly an unforgettable trip!

      Where do I start? This trip, much like my trip to Kenya last year, was incredible! I will travel with BBT every year! Best experience, hands down. Kenny and Logan did an amazing job pairing Kimberly and Tracy to lead our group! They definitely made the difference. Kenya is already full of beautiful cultural heritage and people and scenery and wildlife, but the leaders added a unique flair. I’m so ready for my next trip!

      This was a bucket list trip for my husband and myself. We saw & learned about so many things in each of the countries we visited. The food was fabulous, everything was well organized, we met great people. We highly recommend this. It definitely won’t be our last trip! Kenny and all the leaders were great. It was such a fun time.
