About the founders of Dos Bananas company
Hi everyone! We are Max and Maria and we are the founders of Dos Bananas.
Overall we have visited 30 countries in different parts of the world and can call ourselves experienced travellers. We know what's important while travelling to a new country especially with a child. We value comfort and genuine attitude. We are not backpackers although we travel with back packs.
We don't look towards doing everything ourselves and discover uncharted routes. We don't have energy for that.

We are those who need comfort and who don't want to surf online for weeks trying to find relative info. We'll be happy if someone experienced and local shows us those "damn uncharted routes", finds a decent place for the night, shares travel tips - how to stay connected to the world, what food to try, where to go or not to go. We'll be happy to listen to exciting and true facts about the country and not some boring wikipedia stuff.
Having all that in mind we founded Dos Bananas for people like us who share our love for laid-back and comfy travels.
