Excellent lectures that were full of information and easy to follow. Inspired me to learn more on my own. Additional information on the walking tours was an extra benefit which added more insight on what we were seeing. Dr. Friedrichs was very professional and always receptive to answering any questions.
– Berlin and Dresden

Our tour was very well organized. Checking into hotels was quick and seamless. Our local guide Tomas was amazing, very knowledgeable, informative, and engaging. Lynn was awesome. I hope she will continue to do more of these trips.
– Bratislava to Prague Walking Tour

Our local guide Amy was terrific! Her knowledge of the history of France and the gardens we visited was outstanding. She was also very thoughtful and caring for some people who needed extra help. There were also guides in individual gardens, they too were good and passionate about their gardens.
– Gardens of France

Our Leader Bonnie was a fountain of knowledge about Polar Bears and the areas we travelled through. Our tundra buggy driver Marcus was also extremely knowledgeable.
– Polar Bears of Churchill

All three local guides Julius, George, and Edward, and group leader Cole Burton were very generous in sharing their extensive knowledge about the animals, their behaviour and their interactions with the environment. I learned a tremendous amount on this tour.
– Tanzania Safari

My wife and I have now been on 6 tours with Worldwide Quest, most of which were alumni UBC tours. We have enjoyed every one of those tours. One thing that has worked really well so far has been the tour participants. I think the alumni base brings out common interests and backgrounds that makes it easy to make friends.
– Iceland’s Story
