My time at Jeffs were amazing. He is such a gentle soul and you genuinely feel like he cares about you.

You also get a chance to stay with other travelers at the same time which is really fun as well

I had lots of fun and will definitely seek to come back in the future!

This was my first Worldpackers experience, and I love people I met here. We had a fantastic crew, and it’s been a huge pleasure to spend time with them. It’s amazing how quickly I get emotionally connected with people here, and I wish to see them again. Jeff was a good host and he likes having young people around. The workload is as described, and the work contents varies everyday base on the situation. Sunny is nice to talk to, and she sometimes provide snacks. I hope the communication could be a little nicer during work. I really enjoyed my stay, and I appreciate camping with friends.
