Your Time Travels (YTT) is a travel company for animal lovers, vegan-owned and run. Ever begin to plan a vacation only to think “Damn, I hope they have healthy food I can eat” or “I really hope this place doesn’t
have monkeys on chains as entertainment.”  This is the sort of business idea we get really excited by and want to support whole heartedly!



Enter brilliant Liz Longacre, a gorgeous and compassionate former lawyer, who was inspired to start YTT after her experience volunteering abroad at an elephant sanctuary in Thailand.Tourists engage in countless activities all over the world that appear innocent on the surface but in reality harmfully exploit animals. YTT is a travel company for the socially-conscious animal loving traveler who wants all the perks of a traditional vacation (cultural, adventure, and sightseeing activities and beautiful hotel stays) while also incorporating activities that are truly beneficial for animals and avoiding those that are not. You’ve just got to watch this beautiful video Liz made about why she started this company.


Liz customizes trips to suit your schedule, needs and budget and incorporates spending a portion of your vacation either volunteering with an animal welfare organization or seeing animals in the wild on various types of safaris. YTT promotes vegan resorts, eco-lodges, and vegan cooking classes whenever available and will plan out exactly where you can eat on any trip to accommodate your vegan diet. Could this be a more genius service!?


Wouldn’t your rather support a green animal-lovin’ girl and her
company?  We would!

YTT is basically your vegan animal loving travel agency! They plan your trip from start to finish to give you your dream animal-friendly vacation ranging from a vegan safari in the middle of the Serengeti to working with rescued elephants in Thailand to doing conservation work with endangered sea turtles in Costa Rica. Are you packing yet? To maximize the amount of money retained by local communities YTT uses local guides and tour leaders who were born and raised in the country they work in. Your guides can take you off the beaten tourist path and educate you on the countrys history and culture. YTT’s trips are for travelers who want to have exciting adventures without them being at the expense of other living creatures. By engaging in the activities YTT promotes you will have a far more educational, fulfilling and unforgettable experience, it may even be life changing. YTT currently offers trips to Costa Rica, Argentina, Thailand, St. Martin, Tanzania and Rwanda and is always working to expand its offerings. YTT can also help you plan local trips within the U.S., including trips with your own pets!!!
