Twin Star trips have a very special place in my heart. After traveling to various countries throughout the world I have come to realize the Twin Star trips provided something very unique and life changing. The gift of the wisdom passed on from the courses, the beautiful people traveling with us and the freedom for us to step outside of our daily grind and see a way to create a better life for ourselves and those around us. I haven’t experienced this anywhere else. There is such peace of mind found when going to a foreign place that one has never been to before and having all of the logistics taken care of ahead of time. Transportation, accommodations, the food, etc. all well coordinated. And the food - always delicious and nourishing! Where ever we have stayed in Europe or South America it has been clean and comfortable. The itinerary is set at just the right balance of daily activities and individual freedom. It’s that whole first time doing something... that fear of riding a bike or jumping off the rope swing, whatever it may be in life, the reward is always worth it... like taking the chance to go on a Twin Star trip!

I traveled to Sayulita, Mexico with Twin Star as a honeymoon after an amazing wedding to my best friend Trevor. We had “front row seats” to unforgettable Dia de Muertos festivities in Sayulita, a lovely little town just north of Puerto Vallarta. On Dias de los Muertos, families construct altars to honor their loved ones who have passed on. The altars are often covered with some of the deceased’s favorite things, maybe pictures of motorcycles, or flower blossoms, or even bottles of tequila! In the US this holiday might be interpreted as a little spooky or morbid, in Sayulita it was a celebration of life. So much color and music and great food! Lupo and hosts Jenn and Jason were fantastic guides to this great little town. Jason recognized that my husband and I were very interested in learning more about the local food scene, and subsequently invited us to come with him to the local fish market and cheese shop. Lupo shared an amazing visit to a Huichol artisan’s studio, where we were able to see his intricate bead and thread work, and could ask questions about the indigenous culture. Our entire group was able to meet some endangered baby sea turtles before they were released back into the sea…super cute! My favorite part of the trip was the ancestral healing journey Lupo led us through. I was able to tangibly connect with my grandmother who I haven’t seen since her death in 1986. It was wonderful to feel her love all around me again. Muchas gracias Twin Star for such a fabulous trip! It won’t be our last trip with you.

Traveling with Twin Star is definitely an experience not to be missed! It is always an intimate and supportive group of people that soon become your good friends. It’s a combination of a lot of laughs as well as learning. You will interact with herbs very intimately as it is a very spiritual and conscious experience. It is quite a special way to visit foreign countries through studying the flowers, trees and herbs while integrated with ritual and the spirit of the land they inhabit. Our guides, Tina and Lupo, are both super knowledgeable about the land and the experience feels like a time traveling journey to another part of history. Our teacher Lupo knows how to bring the energetic of the plants to life and the herbs that are meant for you always finds its way! Don’t be surprised by the quick stops on the side of the road to experience and gather the most amazing herbs or plants to later make into a necessary potion. It is a fantastic experience!

The journey to France changed my life in a wonderful way. I highly recommend this trip with Twin Star, Lupo, our Stellar teacher and Tina, our tour director, a/k/a the Tour Goddess! We explored sacred ancient sites and French wild and cultivated herbs, made flower essences and immersed ourselves in thermal and free-running healing waters. We heard little-known stories from master story tellers, while eating amazing country French food prepared by our pension hostess each night and gathered at local markets. And the wine! Our tour was intimate, deep in spirit and exploration, delightful, fun, and I met wonderful people all along the way. I will definitely return to the French Pyrenees, and am so grateful this trip opened this gateway for me!

I’ve always wanted to visit Costa Rica. So when I learned that Twin Star Herbal Education was offering the opportunity to travel there, I knew it was time to check it off my bucket list! Lupo lead our small group into the charming town of Manzanillo, located in the province of Limón. It was the best of both worlds as the town bordered the Gondoca jungle and the Caribbean sea. The reasonably priced travel package included accommodations, medicinal cacao and jungle tours, various herbal classes, many traditional meals, free time to explore and more! The experience provided me with knowledge of tropical medicinal plants, expanded my awareness of the world, gained friendships and offered personal growth and healing. I was hooked and even returned to Costa Rica with Twin Star the following year! Twin Star Travel is amazing! It’s a great opportunity for singles and couples, alike, to join in on a unique travel experience. Next, I’d like to join in on their Ireland trip... or France!

More information coming soon!

I’ve traveled with Twin Star to Costa Rica on two occasions, in 2016 and 2017. Both experiences were amazing; I felt well taken care of in terms of food and accommodation. Any concerns that I or others had during the trip were met with compassion and dealt with to the best of everyone’s ability. Each activity, field trip, and guest teacher allowed me to feel a greater sense of place, and appreciation of the culture. The love that Lupo has for the places she visits, and the plants that grow there really made this a magical experience for me. What a wonderful way to explore herbal medicine in another part of the world; I highly recommend traveling with Twin Star!
