An Interior Fit for Adventures

The bus was amazing! Great for socializing, great for appreciating the views, and great for sleeping in; just a very efficient form of travel.

Natasha, UK

Continue your company as is! I’ve done a lot of other trips around the world, but Green Tortoise is still my favorite company! The food, the drivers, the itineraries and the bus, of course!  I just love your buses.”  Tina, Germany

Camp Cookouts with Style

“The food was imaginative, healthy and delicious. Considering I can’t eat dairy, gluten or sugar, I was always considered, which was really nice.”  –Cathy, USA

“It was fabulous. Very fresh with loads of variety & plenty of options for vegetarians and others with special dietary requirements. I’ve used other adventure travel companies before and this was much better.”  –Hannah, Germany
