Why Travelers Love Buen Viaje Tours
(and keep coming back!)
"I have had so much fun sharing stories about our trip to Cuba. What a marvelous job you did creating a very memorable trip. Your attention to detail was so evident. The places we visited were extremely interesting, the tour guides so knowledgeable, the food fantastic! In reading the trip description, the line, “When you visit Cuba, prepare to be changed,” really resonates with me. I have traveled many places in the world but this trip is at the top of the list when it comes to having an authentic experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"Nicaragua was my second trip in nine months with Jessica and Buen Viaje Tours. I love the organization and the outings, and the travel companions have been fantastic. I'm actually still in touch with everyone from both my trips (yes, everyone!). The groups are super small (4-8-ish people) so the individual attention felt luxurious. The fact that Jessica is bilingual and has lived in Nicaragua eased my apprehensions about traveling "post-Covid." She does a fantastic job connecting with local experts to facilitate the best adventures. She took a survey of our group's interests before the trip and was able to customize outings especially for us. Every single thing we did was a hit. I'm an avid traveler (25+ countries) and it was so nice to just "show up" and everything was planned – and everything was fun."

"This was our second trip with Jessica, only this time to Cuba. Once again, she didn’t disappoint us! Jessica possesses an innate ability to personalize your tour while creating memorable adventures, culinary and cultural experiences, providing expert guides, and allowing time for personal interactions with local residents. The expertise of the guides, guest home owners, restaurant managers, and drivers combined with her personality and passion for traveling enriched our experience and left us with many beautiful Cuban memories. We will definitely want to travel with Jessica in the near future and highly recommend that others do the same."

"You provided me with the best possible vacation experience, yet. It exceeded my wildest expectations. Your support group on the Moroccan ground made me feel like a real Semitic Cousin. There was no stress, no drama, all positive stuff. I made new friends with our travel mates and I made an instant connection with the Moroccan People. Thanks so much."

"Our tour with Buen Viaje Tours was amazing. We saw the 'real' thing; cultural experiences with great food, exhilarating action, and breathtaking nature. Jessica understands the needs of a western traveler, while keeping the trip authentic. She was very open to customizing our experience to our wishes, and recommended some really good alternatives. I strongly recommend traveling with her company. She guided our group of 25 international travelers with very diverging needs without any issues. Thank you, Jessica."

"Jessica is a godsend! She has been a valuable resource and help in planning a tour I lead in Nicaragua. She helps us organize all the details and bring it all together. She has taken parts of our group out on extra excursions and tours and they all had rave reviews. She's personable, professional and fluent in Spanish - but she's more like one of the locals and is accepted by them as such because she has lived there for years. She's a great guide and tour operator in Nicaragua, I highly recommend working with her!"
