My husband and I recently returned from 7 days of wanderlust in Cuba with Jeff and Kalisa. Hands down, it was an amazing adventure! We wanted an adventure and an experience where we didn't have to plan a thing. The Runaway Experience was delivered in full. All we had to do was show up and enjoy. The amazing group of fellow travelers was the icing on the cake. All of the local businesses and people Jeff and Kalisa brought together were top notch. We highly recommend visiting Cuba, or any place, with them. We will runaway again! Don't wait, book now!

The Runaway Experience in Cuba was an unforgettable experience! The owners, Jeff and Kalisa, have perfected the travel experience to make you feel fully immersed in Cuban culture. They expertly merged historical and educational experiences with social connections while offering the best of the best cuisine the island has to offer. They have local connections who you can tell have become their friends, their family, and we therefore felt protected and cared for every step of the way. This was the most carefree trip I have ever taken. From the very beginning, they were totally responsive, answering questions before I knew I had them. All travel and visas were arranged without a hitch. They are in the business of taking care of you - getting you where you need to be, small care packages that will make your life easier, and letting you know what's best on the menu. They have thought of every detail and it makes for laid back, wonderful travel. That being said, there is a sense of flexibility, that allows you create the experience that you desire. We explored the city on our own and with a local guide, had fun salsa dancing with "professional partners", rode horseback through the countryside and learned about cigar making, tasted plenty of local rum and had (almost) too many fabulous meals, hand picked by Kalisa and Jeff from their previous experiences. There was even a beach day, perfectly timed relaxation, with, of course, more cocktails :-) Overall, the itinerary was well-balanced and well-guided! I really enjoyed traveling with the small group they put together. We all bonded over meals and adventurous experiences and I hope we can reconnect in the future. I will definitely be traveling with Jeff and Kalisa again, as you can rest assured that you are in expert hands with them.

Absolutely an unforgettable week! Kalisa and Jeff are such incredible hosts; so curious and adventurous friendly. As soon as I landed in Havana, I felt at ease, knowing I was in good hands. Because of their research and the relationships they've built in Cuba, every experience was amazing: the food, the activities, the cities we visited, even our housing and transportation. Despite being a solo traveler, our group of 12 quickly gelled and I felt like I was with family. And that is a testament to Kalisa and Jeff and how they run things. DO NOT MISS THE CHANCE TO TRAVEL TO CUBA WITH THE RUNAWAY EXPERIENCE!!!

Global Pop-up in Bali with the Runaway Experience was incredible! I will runaway anywhere with Jeff and Kalisa because they create delightful experiences around the globe with a high level of care and intentionality. It felt as if I were being hosted by close friends. The Runaway Bali was just the right combination of relaxation, exploration and connection. The focus on self-care with Jess and Wendy of Food Heaven Made Easy is proving to be the gift that keeps on giving. If you're thinking of treating yourself to a transformative travel experience, join Jeff and Kalisa for an unforgettable time. Keeps tabs on their next adventure at therunawayexperience.com and sign up for the emails because they sell out fast.

It has taken me embarrassingly long to write this review. I went to the Runaway Jamaica in 2016 and had the whole house between three couples. To say that the trip was amazing, makes the word amazing feel like it has no meaning. Jeff and Kalisa have made an absolutely incredible home (full of local artisan crafted furniture and art) and experience (food, outings, etc). Before you head out, they send over a ton of potential options for outings and experiences for your trip. They plan everything from your airport pickup, to packing you lunches (more on the food in a moment), to buying your tickets, to securing guides, to making reservations... it's completely full service. We were able to do some totally touristy outings, like Blue Hole waterfalls (still incredible to propel down a waterfall honestly, not hating one bit) to the local Jerk Chicken spot, Scotchies. Then we were able to do some more unique outings like visiting Stush in The Bush, a farm to table dining experience. Then, there is the food that Kalisa makes. All food (unless you eat out for any meals) is included in your stay. And trust me when I say you can easily gain 5 pounds in 4 days because it is all absolutely mind-blowingly good and you want to try/inhale it all. Kalisa made breakfast, lunch, packed lunch for our hikes, snacks, cocktail hours and dinner. She included tons of local flavors and ingredients, many of which I'd never had before which was awesome. I'm just going to add photos (everything I posted, Kalisa made), because I can't possibly describe it. I am DYING to go to one of the Runaway global experiences. Rest assured, any trip you take put together by Jeff & Kalisa at The Runaway is going to be one you will never forget.

The Runaway Experience provides global, curated travel experiences for the culturally curious. Adventures are impeccably curated. Epicureans will be delighted. Lodging is stylish. The best part of the Runaway Experience, are Kalisa and Jeff. They are expert hosts with friendly finesse. You can travel solo, or you can choose to travel alongside Kalisa and Jeff as travelers with insider knowledge of the locals and their customs. They manage to serve as group hosts, while also attending to individual needs with diplomacy. The Runaway Experience has mastered the art of engaging place. All of my senses were engaged through a variety of experiences ranging from jogging through the Balinese mountainside at sunrise, traditional dance lessons with local Balinese children, village tours led by local tour guides, traveling to the local market, cooking lessons by local experts, among others. Lastly, you are sure to make lasting connections with new friends from all over the globe. If you need to be reinvigorated, mind, body, and soul, be sure to Runaway with The Runaway Experience.

My runaway experience in Bali was wonderful from start to finish. The hosts Jeff and Kalisa did an amazing job organizing the trip from accommodations, transportation, and activities that facilitated an authentic experience of the island. In addition they made the process of traveling solo so easy and comfortable that all questions and any necessary personal accommodations were addressed. I could have not put together a better vacation experience on my own and look forward to joining another runaway experience when I have the chance. If you are thinking of a vacation with great food, good people, and a experience that is off the beaten path, @therunawayexperince is something you should consider. You will not be disappointed.

Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down and I'd like to take a minute just sit right there, I'll tell you how I became a fan of this Runaway affair... Back in December I was tagged in a Runaway Bali post on IG and at that very moment I knew I was taking my talents to Indonesia for some much needed self care. Fast forward a few months, trip was paid (I believe Jeff & Kalisa gave the option to pay in installments which is great for folks that need to spread their coins out.) and the duo provided us with a flight booking concierge service that found me a flight up to NYC including a long haul-layover in Hong Kong all for under $900...talk about winning! Prior to the trip we were introduced to the group via email and were able to share a little about one another. Jeff & Kalisa were very accommodating from start to finish. If there was ever a question or concern they encouraged me to reach out. A few weeks before the trip Kalisa scheduled a call to go over the itinerary and answer any addtl. questions I may have had and about a week before my trip I received a nifty travel bag with a plethora of travel essentials. Kalisa's call, the tote bag of essentials and their overall thoroughness gave me much ease as I was flying 21 hours abroad alone. From group chat check-ins to ensure I arrived, the warm welcome dinner on night one, small talks, hikes and excursions, experiencing Balinese culture, souvenir shopping ,GREAT eats, and time spent lifting one another up; I am still in awe. Jeff & Kalisa were the most caring and chill hosts I ever encountered. I took ill for 24hrs and Kalisa checked on me round the clock with meds & nourishment. Every single moment was curated to ensure we learned, enjoyed and appreciated. Sanak Resort, located near the beautiful Munduk Mountains, was pure bliss. The scenery, smells, sounds, tastes and atmosphere allowed me to not only relax but also release. My bungalow was heaven on earth. I woke up to birds (and roosters) calling daily as the sun rose. The double balcony that overlooked the pool and fields of rice paddies allowed me to sit with my thoughts and pray at my leisure. I broke my own record of getting 5 spa treatments within a week so leaving Sanak was bittersweet; I already plan to be back lol. Jeff & Kalisa made me feel like extended family and that alone is why I believe The Runaway Experience is hands down the best travel group. If you are looking for a one of a kind curated vacation be sure to book with them. It'll be the best decision of your travel life!

Running away with Jeff and Kalisa is one of the best decisions I've made for myself! I highly recommend going on any Runaway Experience because they go above and beyond to deliver beautifully curated travel experiences that exceed expectations. I only had to show up and be present, then Jeff and Kalisa handled the rest with impeccable care. The rich, textured experiences curated during my Runaway to Cuba fully immersed me in the beauty and complexity of Cuba and Cubanos. We traversed over 300 miles of the country to authentically enjoy the most delicious food and drinks in Cuba, talking with Cubanos, dancing, exploring, learning and wondering. Jeff and Kalisa have spoiled me and raised the bar for feeding my wanderlust. Sign up for email and get ready to follow them wherever they go. You don't want to miss out on the Runaway Experience! Jeff and Kalisa, thanks for creating unforgettable moments.
