agape [ah-gah-pey]: the love of God for humankind
We’ve learned that one of the best ways to share the word, and spread the good news, is to show love to others that is so infectious people would know we are God’s children from our actions alone. John 13:35 sums the idea up best, “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” In everything we do as a company and individuals we hope to embody this verse.
The Agape Co. started as an idea to see the world together and share with others what we had seen. Our best travel blogs and travel vlogs allow us to do just that!
We believe God shows his love for humankind in many ways, including in allowing us to explore his beautiful creation. We decided to share travel tips and travel guides to aid others explorers find beauty near and far. Our best travel blogs and travel vlogs are free so that everyone can use, enjoy, and share them.
We’ve both been fortunate to have seen much of the world so far. We both recalled fond memories of family vacations from our childhood. Since family travel was so dear to us, it seemed logical to make it a focus of our growing business. As college students, it is clear why budget travel quickly became the other focus! To clarify, when we discuss family travel and budget travel, we mean activities, accommodations, et cetera, that are affordable and enjoyable for travelers of all ages.
Towards the end of our junior year we felt our next step on our journey was to travel together. We immediately began reading innumerable travel guides and researching locals’ travel tips on Iceland. Through planning we also realized that creating vacation plans was something we loved doing. For 12 days we drove the ring road that follows Iceland’s expansive coast. The journey pulled us closer to each other, to God, and left us in awe of the creation around us. Our goal to share this awe of creation, is what drove our desire to begin creating custom vacation plans for others.
At The Agape Co. we create custom vacation plans for all types of explorers, with a focus on family travel and budget travel.
We take the time to get to know our customers and what they enjoy. This allows us to make highly personalized vacation plans. Sure it’s not the quickest or easiest way, but we believe the vacation you want should be made especially for you, not just copied over time and time again! This has enabled us to provide the best vacation plans to our customers. We hope you will allow us to help plan your next vacation and join our legions of happy travelers.
Our goal is to give you the best vacation plans possible, anywhere in the world, within any budget. Our best travel blogs and travel vlogs contain the travel guides and travel tips to make that happen!
As recent college graduates it’s no secret we know where to find deals! Both for ourselves and our customers, after all we did say budget travel and family travel are our priorities! We know where to look for the best hotels, most convenient flights, and incredible excursions all within your budget. We’ve helped plan vacations from a 9-day $800 trip to Iceland, to a 12-day $5,000 trip to Scotland, to a 10-day $1,500 trip to China.. No budget or priority is too big or small, we love to tailor the trips to your budget and preferences.
If you’re looking for a focus on family travel or budget travel you’ve come to right place. We value our relationship with customers and hope to create a partnership that allows us to be actively involved in all of your vacations.
This relationship allows us to creating a culture of quality. As a customer of The Agape Co. you can be certain your product meets our high standards, and embodies John 13:35. In turn, we hope that you will see the value in the work we have created and will tell your friends and family about the exceptional service you received from us. Whether that product is one of our custom vacation plans, travel tips or travel guides you picked up from some of our best travel blogs and travel vlogs, or even inspiration from our social media channels.
It is stated, “In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.”- Psalm 95:4-5. Through seeing God’s creation and experiencing it together, we’ve grown closer and found a new appreciation for His kingdom. We hope you will allow us to help you do the same.
