Testimonials From Our Customers
I think we’ve been traveling for six years now. The student tour guides have been awesome! They are very knowledgeable about Washington D.C. and have always worked well with us to solve any problems that might come up. It’s been a great student travel experience, overall.Brynley Martin, Oak Hill Junior High School, Eighth grade English and Literature teacher
“I have taken students on these trips for over 19 years now,” says Greg Bell, who takes his student groups to Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Gettysburg. “Encountering American historical sites in person is different than learning about them through reading and lectures. I can lecture to the kids about George Washington,” says Bell, “but there is nothing like watching a kid walk through Mount Vernon on his own.”Greg Bell, Junior High U.S. History and World Geography Teacher, Big Piney, WY
A college professor from Tampa brings his students to New York City whenever he can. They attend several Broadway Musicals and expand their life experiences at the same time. “This helps them to decide at a young age if going to New York City is even for them,” says Finocchiaro. “Some students will go to New York City, while their classmates will go to other cities to pursue their careers,” he added. Orlando is a great city for theater and dance and it’s right in the heart of Florida.Paul Finochiaro, Assistant Professor of Speech, Theater and Dance, University of Tampa
