Just received my The Wordy Traveler box and couldn’t be more happy! I received three non-fiction books themed around the U.S. National parks, a wild mountain berry tea blend I cannot wait to try, and various other useful items for the outdoors such as a compass! I can tell a lot of thought was put into the curation of this box and am pleased with the customer service. Highly recommend!

The Wordy Traveler combines travel and books in a delightful and wonderful way! The box came beautifully wrapped with books, tea, and fun country-related items. I brewed some of the delicious tea and sat down with a book and truly felt like I was being transported to another land! I even purchased a limited edition box - to quench my craving for more Wordy Traveler between subscriptions! This box is a must-have and you won't be disappointed. What are you waiting for - subscribe today!!! :-)
Thank you Wordy Traveler for a super awesome subscription box!

This is my first box and I just received it last night, so I haven’t had a chance to read any of the book yet. I really enjoyed looking through all of the different things included in my box, the cherry blossom charm was super cute, small art print, fan, and bookmark are very vibrant, andI love the tea cup! The list of things to help you discover more of Japan is a really cool touch also. I look forward to reading the book and enjoying a little “staycation” to Japan!

This was an extremely disappointing box. It had a mediocre book in it, that wasn't even historically accurate, and a bunch of little tchotchkes to just collect dust. Part of what the subscriber received in the box was a donation made to an organization. No problems with donating to charity, but not as part of the subscription box. This was supposed to be a Mother's Day gift, but overall was just an embarrassment. She has one more coming, since we did a six month subscription, but I'll be doing something else for her this week instead.

Holly,
Thank you for your review and your thoughts. We appreciate that you gifted the Backpacker Fiction selection. We apologize you thought the book was not historically accurate. In our experience fiction books even historical fictions books are not 100% historically accurate. If you prefer to switch your second shipment to the non-fiction selection please contact us and we will be happy to do so. We do try to fully describe what is included in our box and why each item is chosen to help people understand what they are receiving. We also try to make clear that donating to charity and sourcing items from businesses that donate to charity is the foundation of our company. We are thankful that the box you chose to gift...

I love this box. I'm currently subscribed to the Full Suitcase. I don't read non-fiction very often, so this box helps me break out of my comfort zone a bit. So far every book I've read has been interesting and informative, and has definitely made me want to travel and learn more about the regions they're set in. I do wish that more of the books were written by the people of that region as opposed to outsiders. I really enjoy the art prints and the teas, and the miscellaneous gifts are cute and useful. The price is a little high, but a lot of the cost is going toward helping those in need, which in my mind is definitely worth the price
