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.
