Our Story

When we first met nearly a decade ago we clicked instantly.  In our first conversation we discovered we had both lived in Australia, and the travel stories and dreams flowed from there. As our friendship grew and we began exploring the globe together, we always talked about how travel helped us understand the world and nudged us to be better humans along the way.

While we both grew a lot through solo travel when we were younger, we also agreed that the joy of discovering a new place was that much sweeter when shared with someone else.  And there’s just something different about bonding while traveling- people are more present, more engaged, more real. Friendships are forged faster and solidified instantly over a new experience.

Legit Trips was born out of this understanding that the world is better when we’re connected to it, and to each other.  We’re in business to help people discover the world, together.

We all can make the world a better place by taking time out to connect with ourselves, the planet and other humans.  Experiencing different people and places, and different ways of life, has led us to see unlimited possibilities in our own lives.  We strive to help people feel curious, alive, and free to try or do new things.  We want to see our guests live their best life so they can share their own awesomeness with the world.

Travel for Good
“People become who they are through a collection of memorable experiences. I love seeing travel memories make people’s lives better. An interaction with a local, an underwater adventure, overcoming a fear, a rekindled love for a dance or a tradition. We become our best while we travel, and we get to take that home and carry it with us forever.”

The Power of Travel
“Ever since I stepped foot in Spain to study abroad, I knew that experiencing other cultures was what I’d been missing in my life. I believe that travel opens your heart and mind to things you could never imagine. It connects people in a way that nothing else can. For me, walking around a new city, talking to locals is what makes me feel most alive .”
