agape [ah-gah-pey]: the love of God for humankind
The Agape Co. started as an idea between ourselves to travel the world together and share with all what we had seen.
We’d learned that one of the best ways to share the world, and spread the good news, was to show love to others that is so infectious people would know we are God’s children. John 13:35 sums the idea up best, “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
We’ve both been very fortunate to have seen much of the world at a young age so traveling was something we both enjoyed. Traveling together seemed to be the next step in our walk together and with God. Logically, off to Iceland we went! For 12 days we drove the ring road around Iceland’s coast; everything was incredible and we even managed to keep to our budget. We realized that planning trips was something we enjoyed and wished others would have the same experiences on vacations that we had. This hope to share is what drove our desire to begin creating plans for others.
At The Agape Co. we create custom vacation plans for all types of travelers.
By not pairing with any excursion or travel companies, we have enabled ourselves to provide the best experiences to our customers, often ones we have tried ourselves! We take the time to get to know our customers and what they enjoy, this allows us to make highly personalized itineraries. 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!
Our goal is to give you the best vacation possible, anywhere in the world, within any budget.
As two college students you can imagine we know where to find the deals! After four years of scrimping and then splurging on our travels we know where to look for the best hotels, most convenient flights, and incredible tours and excursions all within your budget. We’ve helped plan vacations from $800 9-day trips to Iceland, to $5,000 12-day trips to Scotland so we know how to tailor the trips to your budget and preferences.
We value our relationship with customers and hope to create a partnership that allows us to be actively involved in the planning of all their vacations.
This relationship allows us to creating a culture of quality and as a customer of The Agape Co. you can be certain your product meets our high standards. 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 and product you received from us and will ultimately allow us to help plan all your vacations.
For 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. All around us is the beauty of God’s creation meaning and we are made to enjoy it! 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.
