I was very excited to support a Canadian company, but unfortunately, this trip was anything but blissful.

The tour guide was unprofessional, incompetent, and inappropriate. He was reported in the middle of the trip because of how vulgar he was being with the girls on the tour. Guided tours are supposed to be a haven for young, solo travelers and, unfortunately, this tour was the nightmarish opposite. If you plan on booking a trip with this company, please dig into who your guide will be, how many trips they have done, and what kind of reviews they have had.

Additionally, the accommodations, activities, and transportation included in this trip cost a sliver of what I paid. I completely understand the additional cost of paying the full-time guides, and the price of convenience that comes from a trip being planned for you, but unfortunately, I did not get my money’s worth with LBW.

Following my friends and my dissatisfaction with the tour and the inappropriate guide, LBW’s customer support team was unfortunately slow to respond, disorganized, and inconsistent with their suggested solutions.

Please, save your money, and book with another company.

Amazing people that will show you around the best parts of beautiful places. The guides are extremely helpful, the tours and activities maximize all the great times you'll be having. Beyond that, the company gives back to the communities that they visit, try to educate you on the culture, and leave nothing besides footprints. Only the best things to say about LBW.

Life Before Work Travel is hands down my favourite travelling company. Anytime anyone I know is talking traveling I refer them to LBW. Why? It's plain and simple, the company as a whole treats you like family. I have done Yacht Life Turkey& Greece as well as Island Life and both tours where some of the best experiences of my life. The tours and chosen activities are very thought out and have been refined for everyone of all travelling experiences. The tour guides are extremely helpful and really make you feel safe and secure, and inspire you with confidence to really get the full experience no matter what you are doing! I can't wait to book my next trip! Thank you LBW

Had a fantastic day trip to Lapland. Can't recommend it enough. All of the activities were brilliant, and all of the staff we encountered were professional, courteous, but most importantly fun. It's great value for money.
