LDTG TRIP REVIEW

"Deciding to join Liz in Türkiye for my second LDTG trip was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! I say this because we got to experience both Istanbul and Cappadocia during our stay which had two completely different vibes making us feel as if we traveled to two different countries in one trip! This is the first time I spent my birthday abroad as an adult and Liz made sure I felt special and celebrated throughout the whole trip! I highly recommend traveling to Türkiye or any country with LDTG as you are guaranteed to have the most authentic and overall fun experiences in the most unexpected locations! "
