Gap Year Advice

We are thrilled to share some of our testimonials for 2024 with you all. Not ones to toot our own horn but reviews like this really do make our day. Let's see what our Leapers and their families have to say:

'The Leap have been fantastic'

Our daughter has had the most amazing time in Kenya, The Leap group have been fantastic with details and organization throughout, I always felt we were in good hands. The breadth of volunteering and involvement has been wonderful to see and I know this will have changed her life forever. Thank you.
Tanya Crone (parent) - Kenya January 2024

'Absolutely loved it'

I absolutely loved my time on the Costa Rica Adventure program and have met so many amazing people. Lizzie and Carmen were such great team leaders!!

'They know all the best places to visit'

Amazing experience - couldn’t recommend more highly ! Perfect for first time backpackers but great for anyone to be honest. Highly organised trip, all the places you stay in are super unique and cool - not like places you could find travelling on your own. They know all the best places to visit and things to do, the team leaders were AMAZING super nice and knew exactly what they were doing and always eased anxiety as they were very experienced. All the people that did it were so nice and there wasn’t one person of the 15 I didn’t get on with. I honestly have made 15 new amazing friends. So super fun!! They make sure you get a taste of everything the country has to offer (in my experience the Costa Rica adventure one) it is so so fun and you also get volunteering opportunities too which are super rewarding and nice to do multiple different types during the trip. Thank-you Leap! I didn’t get homesick or anxious which is saying a lot and I can put that down to the fun, people and team leaders

'So well organised'

One of the best experiences of my life!! I met the most amazing people and experienced so many incredible things. The trip is so well organised and you get a mix of everything Costa Rica has to offer! Lizzie and Carmen were the most incredible group leaders and this made such a difference, I recommend this trip to anyone who is thinking about doing it!

'Thank you for everything! We’ll always be all flying your flag'

"My son has had an absolutely fabulous time! I can’t wait to hear all the details when he is home but from the photos he has shared I think it’s been so life enhancing for him. I asked him to sum it up in one word for me and the word he chose was Unparalleled. I know he will remember this trip for the rest of his life. I have told so many of my friends about your business as I think you have got it just right. Really fantastic – will be sending my other son onwards to you in 18 months. Thank you for everything! We’ll always be all flying your flag." - Melanie

'We can't thank you enough'

"We really can’t thank you enough! You achieved a brilliant balance between doing something for others, learning about another way of life and having an adventure. Thank you Milly and team!" - Sarah

'A fantastic and very organised company'

"What an experience, what an adventure, what a brilliant time she has had. Many thanks to you and all your colleagues. It is a fantastic and very organized company to travel with." - Debbie

'So well organised'

"The program was so well organised, and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done." - Amani

'Super organised and professional'

"The Leap are super organised. They are professional and are quick to respond to changes in rules when travelling at this time. They continue to provide support and share information even after the programme is finished. They do not pressurise you into joining the programmes. They understand that gap year students change their minds with travel and are flexible and accommodating as can be. Would definitely recommend. Wonderful team to work with Speaking as a parent." - Karen
