“The group trip with Arika & Jilly is definitely the most unique, exciting, cherishable, and worthwhile life experience. This is my first time visiting Hawaii, with a group of strangers from different cities, different cultures, and speaking different native language as me.  I am so appreciated that everyone in the group is super friendly, kind-hearted, supportive and open minded. The friendship with those girls is definitely a bonus of the brave decision I ever made. Most importantly, Arika & Jilly really find a way to make the dream of traveling in the dream destination with budget come true. And there is no doubt we will travel together again for our next trip!”

"My trip to Maui with Bart and Barch Travel was genuinely a unique and special travel experience unlike any other. Jyllian and Arika strike a balance between relaxation and adventure with a diverse itinerary that allows room for spontanenity. In one moment we were hiking through a bamboo forest, then found ourselves drinking fresh papaya smoothies while scoping for roadside waterfalls to swim in during our drive home. Although the magical essence of Maui (emphasis on Mama Sunee and her home-made Lau Lau) was extraordinary, it was the personal bond that all 8 of us created surrounding our love of travel to make the trip truly unforgettable."

"My trip to Kauai was incredible. Jyllian and Arika made the whole trip so easy and relaxing. They planned several adventures from hiking, snorkeling to see the sea turtles to a Fabulous dinner cruise on a catamaran. Our group decided together to try some other adventures the island offered and Jyllian and Arika totally made them happen. I could not have asked for a better vacation with such a fun, great bunch of girls!!! "

“I joined Bart and Barch travel for the Big Island-Hawaii trip. It was AMAZING! My favorite part was snorkeling with manta rays. Arika and Jyllian are great. They really think everything out so you don’t have to wonder what to do or where to go. Plus, they make sure everyone is comfortable so it was easier for 8 strangers to turn into friends. I can’t wait to do another Bart and Barch trip in the future! ”11/13/2022
