Rwanda April 2021

Michelle and Dennis are personally invested in providing the best experience to their customers, they helped my children and I overcome some obstacles we encountered (lost luggage by the airlines) and gave us the best support we could ever ask for. They also went above and beyond to provide my 9 years old with a fun and educational experience as an alternative for not being able to go Gorilla trekking. Truly outstanding service!

I cannot recommend TJD enough! I have joined them on the Rwanda Series, during pandemic times! The organization, attention to details was impeccable. They took care of everything for me. From hotel accommodation, car transfers, activities and even the my packing list! I have never had this much peace of mind during a trip, giving me the opportunity to just enjoy this fascinating country. I am beyond happy to have joined this much needed trip and made such incredible memories I will cherish forever!

2018 - TJD Finland Winter Series and 2019 - TJD Noway Winter Series

I traveled to northern Finland with Travel with TJD and not only had an amazing experience hunting for the northern lights but met some even more amazing people along the way. Michelle and Dennis do a wonderful job of curating really interesting and not so “typical” trips to some really cool places. They also happen to be even cooler people which helps bring people together. I enjoyed my first trip so much that I joined them three months later for a sail trip in the Arctic circle in Tromso, Norway! I’m looking forward to my next adventure with Travel with TJD, wherever that may take me.

2020 - TJD Finland Winter Series

I’ve had the best trip of my entire life few days ago to Finland & I wouldn’t travel again with anyone else but TJD. Attentive, Detailed, caring, supportive, meticulous, all with a beautiful spirit is the least I can say. I’m unpacking and already booking my next plans with TJD. I will forever be thankful!


2019 - TJD Norway Series

"Never would I have thought I would go on a group trip. Nor, did I expect that this would be one of the best trips I have done so far. This trip has exceeded my expectations and was beyond unforgettable! Your enthusiasm, positive energy, efforts and care before within and even after the trip, have made a massive impact on everyone and have been an inspiration to me on a personal level. You really put your heart and soul in to what you do and have shown that you CAN make your dreams come true and that makes me chase mine! Also, not to forget the incredible selection of the guests. I made some amazing friends through this amazing little journey and we all shared an unforgettable experience. As you kept saying “It’s an experience” and I would recommend everyone to experience a TJD trip themselves! Keep shining! Much love “
