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.
