And see why we’re so passionate about group travel.

Our story

Our team

We’re a small team of passionate travelers who think planning group trips should be fun, not stressful. We got fed up with all the back-and-forth of endless email chains, shared spreadsheets, and group texts when planning a trip, so we built a tool to fix all that. It’s called Troupe, we hope you enjoy it.
