Jacqueline   "My first trip with YOLO World Travel (GenX team) was amazing and absolutely one of the best trips I have ever taken. We went to Cuba and I had the best time. Everything was well organized with a great variety of activities planned for us, including our meals and lodging arrangements. I literally just had to send them my required documents and show up for the trip…. just how I like it! The staff was great both before, during, and after the trip! I really couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. I know for sure, this won’t be my last trip booked with YOLO. Thanks again!"

"This is my second trip with Gail and the Gen X bunch, and it did not disappoint. What an amazing trip. The itinerary was very diverse and provided a well-rounded adventure. It will be a trip we will remember for a lifetime."

Augie  

"This is my 3rd winter getaway with YOLO and they just keep getting better. Anegada may be the most beautiful of the 3 islands we’ve visited. What seems like a never-ending beach is filled with gorgeous ocean colors, white sand, and amazing corral and underwater creatures. Evening meals were great fun, experienced with locals who know how to party and make visitors feel right at home. Thanks to YOLO, I have now visited 3 places I would never have known existed. If I can ever figure out how to organize a trip the way Gail does, I would love to go back Anegada."

"Thank you so much for planning this incredible trip for us. I know you put a lot of hours into the research and planning and you didn't miss a thing. It was the perfect amount of hiking and other activities combined with some relaxation at the end. I loved our group and haven't laughed that much in years. I seriously have told my vacation story to at least 18 people since I've been home and they all want to know where I found this great travel group."

Ginny   "THANK YOU for creating such a great experience for all of us. I’m not sure I could have found a better fit for what I wanted out of this trip and the new connections I’ve made. I’m so grateful for all the hard work and patience you put into this adventure. It’s much appreciated by all of us. I miss my new Cuba family. You really went above and beyond on the Cuban adventure. And I couldn’t agree with you more about the best thing about travellling is the time you get to spend with the people you go with and the people you meet along the way!"

Rori  

"Our Nicaragua trip was the trip of a lifetime. Lisa and our local guide Juan put together such a great itinerary and we all had an amazing experience. The group was awesome - we all really bonded, got along well, and made lots of new BFFs. The scenery was breathtaking and the food was incredible. I love GenX trips for the people, the places and the experience."

Elizabeth B   "Thanks again for the great trip. I know you invested a lot of thought and energy into the itinerary and I couldn’t imagine a better one. We saw and did so much in one week! It was so great to have got to know the folks on the trip. I couldn’t have asked for better traveling companions. Lots of laughs!"

"Booking a trip with Gail was one of the best decisions I have made in a while. Travel has never been so easy. Gail researched the location well, prepared a detailed brief, helped us connect with each other before the trip, and sent packing tips in the lead up to the trip! Gail embraced all as close friends which brought a wonderful sense of camaraderie to the group. Now if only I had the time and funds to do this more often..."

Greg H.  

"Cuba was awesome, beautiful, crazy, bass-ackwards (lack of toilet seats, TP, and water pressure to refill the tank), delicious, entertaining. And on and on. It was the friendliest country I have every visited; everybody -- even scam guys in the street -- were proud of their country, but curious about the visitors thoughts, and interested in finding out what "we" (the US) thought about their future. I gave some flowers to a little girl who had been sick at one of the houses where we stayed; she was so pleased, she tried to give me a peso, and when I told her, no, these are for you, and I hope you feel better, the smile was amazing."

"I do really hope they can keep some of the great 'everybody is equa' feeling as they move into a world where there is more differentiation between haves and have nots."

Karla Yoder   "It was a fantastic trip. Gail did a super job in leading the group and Roger of Cuban Adventures was a knowledgeable, fun and dedicated guide. Cuba is wonderful and we enjoyed a lot in the course of a week. I would recommend it highly."

"This was my first international trip with the group, and it was great in every way. From the very beginning the itinerary was clear, and the financial expectations were reasonable. There were no glitches or surprises; all was exactly as advertised, or better. Our guides through Nicaragua were knowledgeable and friendly. We were never faced with a situation that we had to deal with alone or be without an interpreter or advocate. Every aspect of the trip was carefully planned and articulated via thorough communication. In addition to all of the logistics being on point, the travel group itself was a lot of fun. The members of the group shared a love of adventure, and even though we began the trip as relative strangers, we ended the trip as friends. We had a world class experience through a third world country, and I would highly recommend this type of vacation for anyone who also is adventurous and adaptable."

Susan & Art  

"My husband and I participated in both the Puerto Rico and Nicaragua trips and thoroughly enjoyed both excursions. It's obvious that Lisa puts a lot of care and thought in planning meaningful and engaging activities for the group. We loved both experiences and, most importantly, met wonderful people who are now great friends! This experience has changed the way we plan our vacations and we eagerly look forward to traveling with this group again in the future."

Steve J   "Gail, thank you for organizing the trip and for being our “den mother”. You’re thoughtfulness, patience and hospitality made the trip something special – something I’ll always remember. I’m settled back into work and already losing my tan I’d much rather be snorkeling or exploring a warm sunny location."

Pam  

"Nicaragua was my second travel destination with this organization and trip leader Lisa. From boutique hotels, volcanic treks, guided history walks, cathedrals, mountain climbing, yoga surf-side, and our own personal chef which came with our villa on the beach. Flawless organization! The description of the trip was a true representation of what I experienced and more! I highly recommend traveling with Gen-X Travel Club!"

Diana   "Great trip!! My first with this group, but likely not my last. I really enjoyed the trip. So many wonderful experiences and memories. This was the first time I ever did a winter warm weather get away and I'm pretty sure this will become a new tradition for me. The diverse group of very friendly folks participating really made me feel so welcome too. The relaxed atmosphere and variety of activities both pre-planned (Las Haities, Whale Watching, Playa Rincun) and unplanned (human pyramid, dinners, sunrise watching) were perfect for a great mini vacation."

Emily   "I am having Dominica withdrawal. I put some bay oil in my diffuser but the smell just wasn’t the same. I bought some passion fruit juice at Trader Joe’s, and it was definitely NOT fresh squeezed. No tree frogs to lull me to sleep. So sad. Thank you for such a memorable time on the Dominica trip."

Terri  

"This was my first trip with YOLO and it was by far one of the best trips I’ve been on. The island of Anegada was so beautiful with barrier reefs right off the beach. The locals were so friendly and really made you feel welcome. Therer were plenty of group outings, but individual time as well. Gail always made sure everyone got to see and do what they wanted. We also had a vehicle, that anyone was welcome to use. This made it very convenient getting around the island. It was a great time hanging out with old friends and make new friends as well. I look forward to another get away with YOLO in the near future."

Tak   "Somehow we all need to find a way to have many more of these long weekends! My first time to Puerto Rico and also flying in a little 8-passenger island hopper – it was like a smooth roller coaster ride (very exciting for me). When we got to the private villa, that’s when I felt, “I’m on vacation.” Great thing about the trip was spending good times with old and new friends. And, Gail just does what she does best – taking care of everything and doing all the ‘thinking’ for all of us on this trip, so we don’t have too! She gets an A+ and more! One quick tip, don’t count the days just enjoy the moments! OK, here was the bad part – when it came time to pack! The long weekend got real short, but that’s why you have to enjoy the moments you are there, because that brings back great memories of the trip long. So thanks to YOLO (Gail) once again! By the way, this is my second trip with YOLO!"

Astral & Micki   "My sweetheart and I had a fantastic time. Point.100%. That is an inside joke you would not get if you were not part of the fantastic trip! I have to say, to stand on the rooftop of the hotel in Athens when first arriving & looking out at the Parthenon – incredible! There should be pictures on the YOLO website to appreciate my description! Gail has been nothing but a great friend and travel leader who took us an awesome trip! She thought of everything that would make the trip 100%. We had a wonderful trip and great friends to share it with. George, our private driver, is Greece. And Gail is the details of Greece trip – taking care of everything. Ending the trip on a sailboat around the Mamma-Mia island… nice! I highly recommend YOLO and the best part is Gail comes with it!"

Lexann  

"Our YOLO trip to Isla Holbox was wonderful. I never would have found this destination without YOLO, and it was beautiful and relaxing. YOLO took care of everything – transportation, lodging, things to do – and had great contacts at the location to assist us with our stay. Because of the close contacts YOLO had made, the hotel took impeccable care of us for our stay, even preparing a special dinner for the group (and taking care of our vegan co-traveler). The cost of the trip (and the limited amount of money I had to spend while there considering so much was included in the price) was extremely reasonable. It couldn’t have been more fun or easier to travel to a wonderful destination!"

"At first, it felt kinda nice to be home. But then I thought about our great beach trip – the warm weather and all the fun & laughs. Now I really wish I never left Akumal. Thanks for such a great time!"

August   "We really enjoyed our trip to Isla Holbox! Gail from YOLO put together a great package for an ideal destination we never would have known about on our own. She arranged all of the travel connections, which made for stress-free travel. The resort was beautiful with a very high standard of service. We were so glad Gail was able to find such a place. Overall we had a wonderfully relaxing vacation unlike any we had before. We would definitely travel with YOLO again."
