Loved hearing Lauren and Kris's insight and can't wait for more. Their experience is valuable, and they have such a funny rapport. Sounds like we have some great stories coming our way!
Lauren and Kris are not just informative, I love the way they interact! Both with tour guiding backgrounds, they shed a new light on otherwise ho-hum 'done again' topics. Highly recommended!
Great Travel Podcast
As a tour guide, I'm a little picky about my travel advice but I've already fallen in love with this podcast. Kris & Lauren not only have an awesome rapport and knack for storytelling but their extensive travel experience means they have a wealth of information to share. I really enjoy the format, which melds history, culture, personal anecdotes and travel/tour tips into a very enjoyable listen. I can't wait to hear more episodes!
