Awesome Times!I thought that this trip was amazing and absolutely wonderful. The tour guide was a cool guy and he made it all the more fun. The way that the tour was set up was great and well organized and when one of our activities had to be canceled, another was right there to replace it. I loved this trip and I know that I am going to remember it for the rest of my life.
Fun times!! Lots to do!!This trip was nonstop from the time we landed to the time we left!! My students had a blast! And to be honest so did I. We did Disney, Sea World and Universal plus got to go to NASA and the beach!
Swimming with he dolphins is an experience I and my students will never forget. It is one of those once in a lifetime events that everyone should get to do!!
Our tour director was amazing! I took high school students and she let us have freedom but at the same time had easy boundaries to keep! My students loved her.
All in all Smithsonian Student travel was amazing all the way around and this trip was awesome. I would like to go again!!

Good experienceIt was very fun I just needed more time to rest .
Sub standard ExperienceOur tour leader, while a lovely lady, was a very poor match for our specific group. She had very little working knowledge of the places we were visiting. She had not ever been to Coco Beach and was not able to answer any of the questions we had about the area and what was available. She included herself in our student's activities, using the ticket of one of the guest who had to leave due to an emergency. This was not at all a educational tour and it was made worse by the bad fit of the group leader. Discovery cove was by far the hit of the week and our bus driver was very helpful. The food choices were too limited and for what we paid for the trip, we should have been able to have the bus at our disposal rather than have it be a transfer situation.
