Why Travel With Randy's Adventures?
Randy's Adventures was born out of an absolute love for travel. I believe that travel should be eye-opening and engaging but also worry-free and inclusive. When you travel with Randy's Adventures, all you need to do is get excited for your trip! I take care of everything including: the entire itinerary, transportation, activities & tickets, travel insurance, baggage transfers, and much more.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the adventure. I'll handle the rest.
I grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Later, I moved to Northern Iowa over 15 years ago with my family. I fell in love with the Midwest and still live in Iowa. I have organized and led hundreds of group trips over the years and have explored over 50 countries and six out of seven continents (so far)! Travel has always been my passion, and my goal is to spark that passion for curiosity & adventure in my travelers.
