Gautemala

This trip was the best curated travel experience I've ever had. 5 days full of culture, adventure, wellness and healing discussions in fantastic Guatemala, intermixed with restoration and sisterhood. The food, accommodations and guides were all exceptional and Stacey made everything seamless and safe. I look forward to my next travel plan with Lifestyle Health Adventure Travel. Be curious, say yes!

My experience in Guatemala was everything I hoped it would be and more! The week was jam-packed full of adventure, connection, and inspiration. Stacey is a gracious host and took care of all the details- rides, tips, where to eat, etc.- so I could fully immerse myself in the experience without stress. I fell in love with Guatemala and bonded deeply with the other women in the group. LH Adventure Travel is a first-rate travel experience and I highly recommend it without reservation. I definitely plan to travel with Stacey again! 

 

-Jessica Church

Wow! From the moment I got off the plane to the day I left everything was amazing. Luxurious spa hotel, amazing restaurants, beautiful views and above all the wonderful group of women I was with. Everything was planned and prepared with meticulous detail. The beauty of the land and people was evident at every turn. The days were filled with exciting adventures and laughter.   

A week I will never forget and new friendship that I will always treasure.

The Guatemalan trip with LH Adventure Travel exceeded my expectations in every way! Stacey is not just a leader, but a hostess intent on making sure you are connected and comfortable. The itinerary is well thought out and flawlessly executed with just the right amount of adventure mixed in with rest and rejuvenation. I simply had to show up at the right time and everything was taken care of - and that type of service was a treat! I also didn't anticipate the delicious meals we'd experience and the delightful & meaningful conversations that took place during them. Perhaps the best and most unexpected part was that I left this trip with a deep attachment to a new community of like-minded women. I came back from the trip feeling emotionally rejuvenated. I would have zero hesitation on doing this trip again and am already looking at what other trips I can take with LH Adventure Travel. A FANTASTIC experience in every way.

I had an outstanding time in Guatemala thanks to Stacey and LH Adventure Travel!  This was not a destination I had ever considered but the itinerary sounded interesting and I really liked the idea of a women's adventure focused trip.  Stacey delivered on all counts!  There was a group of 11 women, from various parts of the US and with different backgrounds and ages but we immediately created a sisterhood and enjoyed great conversations throughout the week.  The hotel was a great home base for the week, with beautiful and comfortable rooms, and a beautiful exclusive spa area adjacent to our rooms.  And the location was convenient, with shopping and great restaurants in easy walking distance.  I appreciated the mix of adventure and relaxation throughout the week - my highlight was the hike up the volcano but the ATV ride, the coffee plantation, the walking tour and the kayaking were also great fun.  We ate at a mix of different restaurants and there were plenty of options on each menu and lots of opportunities to try local dishes.  We had comfortable weather all week with plenty of sunshine too.

 

Stacey did an excellent job planning, organizing and leading us throughout the week.  She really thought of everything and is an experienced and curious traveler. I'd highly recommend this itinerary or any other LH Adventure trip!

Morocco

This was an amazing trip! We truly dove into the people, land and culture of Morocco.  From the cities' Medinas to the sands of the Sahara our minds and bodies were immersed. We surfed on the sand dunes at sunset but also meditated with the rising sun. We hiked gorges and traversed farms when we weren't marveling at historic sites and Medina shops. What an complete and breathtaking trip. Stacey did an incredible job of curating daily tours and mixing in time to reflect. She also found Riyads, hotels and restaurants that were perfect for us! She also listened so well and accommodated requests with kindness and consideration. I can't wait to join her next trip and appreciate her attention to detail and thorough research. I am so grateful for this trip and all I experienced.

-Agapi Bell

Recently, I had the incredible opportunity to visit Morocco, and I can't express how truly amazing the experience was. From the moment I arrived, I was captivated by the beauty of this country and the warmth of its people.

Traveling with Stacey from Lifestyle Health was a wonderful experience. Stacey's kindness and consideration of the group made the trip even more enjoyable. Stacey's itinerary was a masterpiece. It was packed with unique experiences and activities that I wouldn't have thought to plan on my own. From exploring hidden gems to immersing ourselves in the local culture, every day was an adventure. The accommodations were outstanding, offering both comfort and an authentic Moroccan ambiance.

The music, the landscapes, the architecture, the tour guides, my group – every aspect of Morocco added a unique layer to my adventure. I would highly recommend visiting this beautiful country to anyone seeking an unforgettable travel experience.

-Kim Lawrey

What a fantastic trip to Morocco with Stacey and Lifestyle Health Adventures. It was a joy for all the senses, from the stunning landscapes/hiking and delicious cuisine to the warm-hearted people and rich history.

We visited a variety of cities, giving us a great sense of the country. Everything was well planned out and taken care of. We didn’t have to think about anything but enjoying ourselves. The local guides were very knowledgeable and they helped us to feel immersed in the culture.

We were able to do and see so much. It was an unforgettable experience, and I highly recommend Lifestyle Health to anyone looking for truly immersive and enriching travel experiences!

I signed up with Lifestyle Health Adventures for this all women’s trip to Morocco with expectations of an active (wellness) adventure.  About 4 weeks before the trip Morocco had a devastating earthquake, causing question if we would be able to go.  Stacey with Lifestyle Health worked tirelessly to revamp our travels to ensure the safety of all, While still providing the amazing adventure I was looking for.  From an incredible food tour and bargaining in Marakesh; hiking in various stunning locations, camel rides, sand boarding and fabulous sun rises in the Sahara Desert, to the beautiful blue city (Chefchaouen), and the Medina in Fes; I honestly loved each piece of it. (Including all the stops along the way that I left out!!) Though mostly I loved the inspiring conversation at meal time. Stacey’s foresight and creativity always kept us thinking, and sharing.

It was a special trip like none before. I will definitely be joining Lifestyle Health  LLC for additional adventures in the future, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!!

-Cindy Forman

Stacey is an attuned tour leader offering her clients an up close view of the stunning country, people, landscapes, and crafts of Morocco. Morocco is a country full of color, spice, history, mountains, desert, mystery, intrigue,  and adventure. As we traveled in a comfortable van from Marrakech, we stopped along the way in a number of small towns, trading posts, and villages as we drove and hiked our way through the Atlas mountains on the way to the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi for a not to be missed sunset camel ride and a night in a Berber tent. I loved the music around the camp fire and the music of the Gnawa people in Khamlia. Stacey led an exhilarating trip that was full of adventure.

Zion

Wow! This is the way to travel! Stacey thought of E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. The best part of the trip was having no decisions to make except for what clothes I wanted to wear for the day, and what food I wanted from the menu. The meals, the lodging, transportation, timing, weather considerations, time for bonding and sharing, hiking - everything was so well thought out. My favorite was e-biking though the Zion canyon (it felt like the Sound of Music but set between the red rocks), but I also loved all the hikes, time at the spa and shopping in Springdale. I’m so happy that I gifted this experience to myself for my 50th and that I was able to share the experience with 2 of my sisters. We now have to decide what trip we want to do next with Stacey…. Peru, Tuscany, Morocco?!?!

-Odette Limosnero, MD

This is my first experience going on a trip through Lifestyle Health with Stacey, and it certainly won’t be my last! She is very enthusiastic about what she does and researches all the details of the trip to ensure that every little detail is covered. I share Stacey’s commitment to healthy lifestyle. She goes above and beyond to create a meaningful and memorable experience. No detail is overlooked. One of the things that I found enjoyable, is that all I had to do was be where and when Stacey arranged for us to be. It was totally stress free for me as I didn’t have to plan anything!

I traveled with Stacey and 6 other women on a Zion/Spa adventure in Utah. When we started our adventures many of us were strangers to each other, and we ended up forming friendships, sharing feelings, many laughs, and memories that will last a lifetime. I can’t say enough good things about Lifestyle Health and Stacey’s travel adventures. If you are considering traveling and want to have an experience of a lifetime, please don’t think twice about joining Stacey on one of her adventures. I know I’ll be reaching out to her again! Thank you!

-Beverly Mehl

This trip really took me out of my comfort zone and I loved every minute of it! The hikes were well planned for varying skill levels. For me they were challenging but doable and the scenery can’t be beat. I enjoyed the variety of activities - the ebikes and jeep tour were a fun way to see the parks. And ending with a much needed massage was icing on the cake. I would definitely do another trip with Stacey.

-Kelly Puerta

The Zion/Spa trip was amazing. I had no idea what to expect, but Stacey did a wonderful job preparing us, communicating prior to the trip, and planning a jam-packed itinerary that was a good combination of challenging, fun, and relaxing. It was so wonderful to meet and bond with such a supportive group of women. The hikes were awe-inspiring. The e-bike ride through the park was an awesome way to experience the surroundings. The Red-Mountain Spa was so relaxing. I can't say enough great things about the trip and Stacey. I'm so grateful for this opportunity. I can't wait for my next LH adventure. Thank you!!!

"Dr Funt gave an informative and interesting talk on stress management for our patients. Her style of speaking is entertaining, educational and inspiring.  We loved having her and got amazing feedback from our patients who have been able to institute some of  her techniques.  Her talk included real life examples and even websites to help overcome the hurdles to stress and anxiety in our already overextended lives.
