"I was legitimately blown away by the course. It is truly packed full of knowledge and tips that even the most experienced traveler would learn from. I actually tried my best to pick holes in it and I really couldn't. There are so many things in there that had I known when I first started traveling, I would have saved myself a small fortune."

- Austin P.

"What I loved about this course is that I am a thinker and a planner by nature, and this helps solidify travel into workable parts. It is broken down so well into a logical progression of your trip planning. From how much you want to spend, to where you want to go, and what type of accommodations you want, all working toward your travel experience. Well done, Jackie."

- Heidi from Michigan
