I volunteered with the healthcare in San Jose. IVHQ paired me up with the company Maximo Nivel. I was very pleased with both organizaitons. Everyone was professional and courteous.

Quest Overseas

Quest is probably one of the few volunteer gap year programs that offers volunteer projects that actually benefit the community. For the 6 weeks that i was helping on a building site in the kilimanjaro region of Tanzania i was very aware of and involved in the positive effect we were having on the local community. Quest makes volunteers give an £850 donation to the project. This paid for our food, accomadation, building supplies and wages for the local builders. None of this money went towards quest. The only money quest takes is for the 6 week travel after the project. This whilst being fairly costly is probably one of the best tailor made trips you can find for that price. We did an amazing number of things, all highly enjoyable. Safari, scuba diving, bungee jumping and many other activities were all part of the trip. I had an amazing time and would recommend Quest to anyone without hesitation. I haven't found any other companies that offer either such a genuinely beneficial project or enjoyable travel. The support we received from our 2 group leaders was gerat as well. Without question worth every penny and at the end of it you have actually helped accomplish something beneficial.

Quest Overseas

I had an amazing time with Quest Overseas; I met some really amazing and interesting people from all walks of life. The places we visited were breathtaking and opened my mind to the world of travel and I would recommend this program for anyone. Quest is also great value for money and also unlike other gap year programs most of the money you give to the organisation goes on the community you live and work with so it’s a very rewarding experience. Thanks Quest team!

From begening to the end, I received full support. Rajan and Dr. Bandhu in India are incredible and most supportive. they made my program most successful.
If you are planing to join india program. Please talk Gloden Triangle tour, it is mind blowing. You can't miss Taj Mahal, while you are in India.
