Just got back from the most amazing trip to Machu Picchu in Peru with Travessesd!! It was truly an adventure trip of a lifetime! I can’t say enough good things about Kim and Erran and the whole Travessed experience- from start to finish it was perfectly planned and executed with a focus on excellent, beautiful, epic adventures where we were immersed in the local culture of Peru

Linda R

Travsessed Peru was the most well-thought-out, adventurous, incredible trip! Kim and Erran do such an amazing job at creating a culturally immersive and unique journey! The group was an instant family that motivated and inspired each other the whole way! I couldn’t have planned a better trip to Peru, and I wouldn’t trade the memories, tears, laughter and love for anything!

Emily K

Kim and Erran put on the best trip imaginable!! Not only did I get to experience a new country for the first time but I got to meet some of the most amazing people to do it with ♥️ I love that we didn’t just do “touristy” things but got to experience a lot of the culture.

The adopted Travsessed motto has become: “Come as Strangers, Leave as Family”

If you are coming with a friend or partner you will be rooming with them, If you’re traveling solo, No worries, so are most people who come on Travsessed adventure Trips, so you’ll be in good company.

We’ll do our best to pair you with someone we think you’ll click with based on your intake forms.

Anyone with an open mind & a positive attitude are welcome on our trips! Our trips tend to be 90% healthcare workers just because that is who we are and the community that we talk to.

But if you have a friend or partner that doesn’t work in healthcare that wants to join…they are more than welcome:)!!!

We say that it’s always the PEOPLE that make the experiences so memorable & FUN!!

Our trips attract really fun, high vibe, open minded, down for anything kind of humans!!! 

We do almost everything together on our trips!! We get very close very fast! :)

This is your trip and we want you to make it exactly what you want! There’s a lot to see and experience, so we’ve tried to design an itinerary that’s a balance of adventure with some down time sprinkled in.

We always leave room for some FREE TIME, but we’re together 95% of the time!!!

That being said our trips are pretty go go go & if you need to rest or recharge you are always free to opt out of an activity for some alone time!!

We totally understand that and you are in good company because the majority of people on our trips….come alone & they don’ t know anyone when they arrive.

We create a very friendly & inclusive vibe from the beginning and we all become fast friends.

We do all the planning and organizing for you!! We plan trips based on our own experience in that destination while also using all the tips and insider knowledge from local guides and friends that we meet along the way!! 

All you have to do is get yourself there….we take care of the rest!! 

I’m nervous to book because I have never traveled outside the country before, there are lots of things that I do not know how to do, and what if I make a mistake.

When we say we have you covered, we have you covered.  We provide a FB Group, WhatsApp Group Chat, direct access to us via email, so we can walk you through anything you might not know how to do.

We also send you a packing list, places and restaurants to check out during your downtime,  how to get local currency, tips, local facts to familiarize yourself with the local area, visa information, customs information, and will provide video details of airports, and will have a driver there that we are in constant contact with and have worked with before to pick you up from the airport and bring you to the hotel where we will be there to greet you and get you checked into your hotel room.

In other words, We got you!!! 

Yes, it is mandatory for all guests on Travsessed Adventures to have personal travel insurance for the duration of the trip. We recommend you book your travel insurance as soon as you make your trip deposit to protect your investment. (We will send more info about insurance upon booking)

All payments are non-refundable. If the trip must be postponed or cancelled due to events beyond our control, you will be offered the choice between a full refund and applying your payments to a future trip.

The reason payments are non-refundable is that we start incurring costs from the moment someone signs up — from credit card fees to our local vendors & organizers coordinating and booking everything on the ground for our group and beyond.

Thank you so much for your understanding and respect of our need to enforce this policy strictly. 
We are excited to share so many incredible adventures with you.
