About Us

We began True Travel Reviews over 11 years ago. Through content writing business, Words You Want, we had been asked by several clients to write fake reviews for a variety of websites. Obviously, the goal was to make their service or product look good and thus increase their sales. However, that got us thinking. How many of the reviews you read online are fake?

This is how True Travel Reviews was created. Our goal is to provide you with true reviews of the various destinations we visit – whether that be attractions, restaurants, campgrounds, etc. Along the way, we will share stories of our travels, the ups and downs and more.

Our son, TJ, also shares his view of the world in Travel with TJ!
