"What I love and appreciate about Get Out There Tours+Travel is the passion and commitment to culture, environment, and conservation.
Each trip that I have been on has introduced me to a perspective of local culture in a way that no other tour or travel company has ever offered me. I feel fortunate to have spent time with Laura and her network in several countries. Based on their principles and energy, I am a better human, elephant ambassador, and traveler."

"Get Out There Tours + Travel exceeded all my expectations, and that is hard to do :).  The trip I took to Bali in 2023 I will never forget.  Such special memories were made with the other travelers and with the owner, Laura Stegeman.  She anticipated each one of our needs and made sure to answer questions with her expertise knowledge of traveling abroad. She did not leave out any small details during the 3 zoom sessions of Q and A that were available to the individuals in the group.  The accommodations were absolutely amazing!!.  We visited and toured three different areas of Bali, each very unique to one another and Laura had her guides assisted with optional tours that were so thought out and quite amazing.  HUGE SHOUT OUT TO GET OUT THERE TOURS + TRAVEL.  I am definitely planning my next experience with this company that exceeded my expectations!!"

"I’m on my threepete trip with “Get out there tours”. What I love most about this tour group is getting a chance to travel with likeminded friends. Sharing in experiences of spiritual, adventure, fun and laughs. 
Getting to capture pictures and memories with my bestie and new friends along the way, makes this a no brainer for me. Laura and her experiences takes all difficult parts of arrangements and guessing what to see and where to stay out of it for me. I just make the payment and leave it all up to the expert. I appreciate all the effort Laura makes to make my travels experience an enjoyable one. 
If you are interested in travel, this is the only way to fly. I want to thank Laura and her staff for always making my travels, safe, enjoyable and memorable. 
When I look back on my life, it will be on the adventures I have had and the people that have touched my life in such a wonderful way. People that are walking this journey with me shoulder to shoulder. 
Come join us!  5 :star: for sure."

"I think you did an amazing job with all the moving parts accommodating people traveling in at different times, staying longer or leaving locations earlier and different travel home. I think you did a great job doing the best of your ability making everybody’s dreams come true maximizing their idea of what they want to accomplish in their travel. You were always very positive open minded, and flexible honest, forthcoming and frugal! It was apparent you really look out for everybody’s well-being and safety as well as making their travel dreams come true. I think you are a true travel guru/master, and look forward to traveling more with you in the future."

"A few of my friends were joining Laura on what turned out was her first official Serenity In Siam Trip and I couldn’t wait to sign up. I’m so glad I did. From finding us a group flight with an easy layover in Taipei to showing us how to pay respects in a Temple on our first outing and even how to negotiate for a good price on those elephants we all had to have, she covered all the bases. What I loved most was everything! Laura planned it all and guided us around expertly. None of us had been there before and many have returned. I know now why Laura loves it there so much. Thanks Get Out There Tours for showing me The Land of Smiles!"

“Laura planned our trip to India and we had the most incredible time! She made sure that every detail and consideration was thought out which made our trip delightful, educational, luxurious (even though the price wasn’t) and mostly...memorable. I can’t wait until we get to ask her to plan our next adventure!”

“My fiancé and I wanted to go on a honeymoon after we got married, but planning a wedding in 6 months was all we could handle. Instead of our honeymoon being an exciting adventure, the thought of it all was beyond stressful. We  reached out to Laura a month before we hoped to take our trip. Our entire honeymoon was planned for us in less than a week! Laura’s knowledge of the area (well many areas—we talked about Costa Rica, Panama and Bali), her speed in planning, her communication, and attention to detail is UNMATCHED. She listened to what we wanted, planned what we wanted, stuck to our budget, AND added so many activities we never even thought of—and, best of all, she eliminated every ounce of our stress. We give Laura a 10/10. She’s a rockstar.”

"What was my favorite part of Thailand with Laura Stegeman? Her dedication and well thought out tour of all the cities we traveled to. The itineraries we were given daily were from the heart. The photos she took of each of the travelers -breathtaking. When I wanted to give up, she held my hand and being the leader she is she walked me in to the water so I wouldn’t miss {out}.
I can hardly wait for the November trip. Please join us if you can.
Get Out There Tours is her new company. Check it out"

“Thailand had been a country I’d dreamt of visiting for as long as I can remember. Intrigued by the land’s beauty and country’s abundant history, and its people’s warmth, my dream came true in 2018 by being a part of Get Out There Tours’ Serenity In Siam.”

"Thank you Get Out There Tours and Laura for making my first trip out of the USA so memorable. Laura answered all my questions and was available anytime prior to and during my trip in Bali. She made my dreams of traveling come true and my experience was beyond anything imaginable. Her attention to detail is amazing and I learned so much from her. Thank you Laura!"
