Kori and the team are some of the best people I've ever met. I'd highly recommend any of their tours to learn about history and as well about faith. I know my testimony has grown exponentially due to the trip and the Hi-5 staff. 10/10, I'd encourage anyone to go on one of their trips!

Fall Foliage Family Tour 2023 -Traveling to NauvooI have always wanted to see the Church sites but didn't know how to go about it. The moment this tour opened, I signed up. What better way to see some of the most amazing historical sites?! No need to decide where do go first, or where to stay. Travel and accommodations have all been planned, you just go along for the adventure.From day one you will feel like you just gained new family! And who knows maybe those sitting near you is a cousin you never knew!From guided tours, beautiful scenery, laughter, tears (lots of them), overwhelming spiritual experiences, words of wisdom and direction from people who live and love this Gospel, it's something to will never forget.This is a tour for the young to seasoned in years... those that are agile and spry, from a little fluffy or slower in step!The team is attentive and loving from beginning to end (and beyond). They were willing to jump in and help with anything that was needed. They truly care.Al Carraway is the best tour guide. No matter what season or tour you go on with her, you will be edified by her knowledge of Church History, the Scriptures, our Heavenly Father and elder brother Jesus Christ. Tears of love and understanding will be plenty, as much if not more- echos of laughter and joy wherever she is.The only drawback is the dreaded "see you again" for there truly will never be a goodbye.Thank you Hi5 for bringing me along on this journey. I cannot wait to travel and hang out with y'all again!♡

They were all so enjoyable to listen to and you definitely felt the spirit, but you also enjoyed many nights of laughter, contests and fun!Never a dull moment on this tour!Everyone on the bus became one great big family!This experience is stamped on my heart forever! I learned, I grew, I had a permanent smile on my face and I didn’t want it to end!Thank you so much for everything!Cheryl KearnsBonus……… Joe was the best bus driver we could ever have!

I went on a Fall Foliage Church History Tour with Hi-5 Live Tours. I can honestly say this was one of the best tours I have ever taken! I had so much fun and made many new friends. I also had unbelievable experiences. I wanted to take this church history tour because I have been inactive for many years and I wanted to see the church history sites again. Besides learning so many new things, my heart was also uplifted. Our tour guides, Josh Tilley, Steven Palmer and Al Fox Carraway were the best and so knowledgeable at every site. They cared about each person on the tour. Braden and Chelsey Tilley and Dwight and Marci Durrant also worked hard behind the scenes. Thank you so so much Hi-5 Live Tours!

Hi 5 Lve tours sets itself apart from the others by being the leader.!They make the tour about the experience, and feelings. You may feel vulnerable and nervous to share about yourself but the rewards come from building relationships with the individuals who will become your friends from the tour, the leaders and with your Savior! The experience is FUN ..SPIRITUAL.. and can be life changing for many.You will laugh you will weep you will walk away smiling on the outside and inside.

I love this tour group!The tour guides are fun and playful and it made learning about church history enjoyable. They offered genuine interest to get to know each of us and our stories. They give devotionals each day and we were spiritually fed. The group on our bus tour has become quite the family because of the way they've intentionally created these experiences. I enjoyed doing the whole church history. We did the whole shabang! We started in NY and end in MO. a lot of traveling, yet the bus time is just as enjoyable as the site seeing and a good break to take in each of the locations, and digest all the history.I brought along our 12 year old and 19 year old, they both had a great time. They will remember this trip for years to come.My only feedback is I wish I had a little more time in Nauvoo. 4 hours went by so quick!

We joined the 2023 Fall Foliage Tour at the last second. My wife and I are both 75 years old and we were a little concerned about the walking that might be involved. We should not have worried because we were given the time to see the things we wanted to see. We are taking home great spiritual memories and many new friendships.

There were so many things standing in the way of making it on this Fall 2023 Foliage/Church History Tour. But, God prevailed. My prayers were heard and the blessings of new friendships, being on the trip with my sweet husband, gaining a strengthened testimony of the Restoration, and overall fun have filled my soul.Hi5 Tour Leaders are amazing. They worked so hard to meet everyone’s needs and expectations and they far exceeded mine. Two bucket list items checked off!✔️ See Fall leaves✔️ Get my husband to Church History SitesDONE!Bonus checks!✔️ Niagara Falls!✔️ Meeting Al Caraway and the other Hi5 Crew

We came as strangers and left as family. My testimony has grown so much on this trip. And they did such a great job packing in all the most amazing places. I definitely will be back!!

We had talked about doing a Church History tour for a couple of years and then we saw Al Caraway mention the Hi 5 Live Church History Tour. We decided to sign up and I am so glad we did. This Church History Tour was so awesome!!! It was the best!!! We learned so much and the Spirit was so strong! They did a great job with everything including the pre information about the Church History sites, the Tours, keeping everyone engaged, the hotels, the food and much more. Everything was fantastic and I would recommend it to everyone! 🙏🏽😊❤️

Wow we loved this Fall Church History tour! The bus was so nice, the hotel rooms really great, but best of all was our tour guides. They were so much fun and really truly made the trip better than I thought possible. It was a great balance - good planning, great company, knowledge and fun personalities. Also impressed with other participants - we felt like a family by the end of the week and so enjoyed each other’s company. Really fun activities for example a home cooked Amish meal in Indiana. Thanks to Josh, Steve, and Al for an awesome week!

Nauvoo temple was majestic! So beautiful! I loved the stained glass windows up top. So much history on this tour. I had no idea about most of it and I’ve been a member my entire life. Every member of the church should do this tour to really understand what happened and why. So enlightening! My testimony of Joseph Smith has grown into admiration and honor for him and all those that sacrificed to help forward the Restoration of the Gospel.

This tour has exceeded my expectations. I have been so uplifted and educated by the stops on this tour, but even more so by the tour directors. The staff of High Five Live Tours are simply phenomenal. They are so inspiring and have such fun loving personalities that you instantly love them. I feel we have made new friends for life. This tour is worth every penny. I am so grateful that my wife talked to me about this tour. We took our twins that just graduated highschool and it has been so amazing for all of us.
