What we're about

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNEqPQeszpY
I started this group back in 2015 to get people to do adventures and outdoor activities with me. I guess we are all craving fun and adventure because the group took off like a rocket!!
Today we have an amazing team or organizers, and more and more people keep joining us to do more and more fun stuff. Everywhere I go I see great people meeting and making friends with great people. 
We also do trips: international travel and local travel. If you are interested in group travel and finding traveling friends to have fun all over the world, you have found your group! We do amazing off the beaten path trips and adventure trips, and sometimes even some relaxing "drinking margaritas on the beach" type trips too. 
So let's keep on having fun, let's see where it takes us, and let's see how much fun we can handle!!!

Meetup on The Orient Express. Only 3 spots left! Confirm by April 8th !!

San Diego International Airport

Meetup on the Orient Express is our signature trip. Tracing the old Orient Express route, we visit 6 countries! It's an unforgettable escape, the trip of a lifetime! This event was sold out months ago and now we were able to add a few more spots. You have to act fast though! If you want to grab one of these few spots, book by April 8th!

The Orient Express...you have heard it many times. The romance, the mystery, the adventure! Of course with the opulence too!

This trip brings back the romance and adventure of train travel, along with the mystery of new cities and countries. Brought back in a special way; adding value and removing inflated expense of excessive opulence by replacing it with service and contemporary refinement. The Original Orient Express no longer exists, but this journey will mirror elements of the original route from Paris to Istanbul. We are re-creating the experience using modern trains and conveniences.

Paris for 3 days
Venice 2 days
Vienna 2 days
Prague 2 days
Budapest 2 days
Istanbul 3 days

Included: train or air travel between the 6 cities, transfers to hotels, train stations or airports, guided tours in each city, one or more meals a day, museum entrances, wine tasting and much more!
In addition, many other options and extras are included.

The Orient Express was long-distance passenger train service that began in 1883 with the original endpoints being Paris to Istanbul. The original name became synonymous with intrigue and was a showcase of luxury with comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. The original Orient Express is but a memory. And we are bringing back the best parts.

EVERY aspect of this trip is epic. Visit picturesque and storied cities. Enjoy four night trains and experience the enchantment of the rails. We are even staying in the original destination of Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul built in 1882 with it's grandeur and opulence.

Includes:

  • 4 night trains with sleeping compartment accommodations
  • 10 nights in 4-star or higher category hotels with best central locations
  • all transfers
  • guided tours in each city
  • entrance to museums in each city
  • at least one meal a day
  • and more...

We travel as a group, and also have the flexibility of hop-on, hop-off tours and museum passes with "skip the line" so you enjoy a complete independence. You are free to do your own thing, cater to your special interests, visit other sights and locations in the cities, while still being guided and helped with all the arrangements. You can do it independently, or you can join new friends traveling with you, and do it together. The idea is: come alone, meet new like-minded people and make lifelong memories...without being stuck with the "one size fits all" tour formula.
