  1. Awesome Experience

    I had a wonderful time on this trip. I got to see NY and experience great food. I feel like I would have never been able to see NY without our guide Larry. He was awesome and knowledgeable. Our bus driver was totally awesome too!

  2. Awesome Trip

    My students had a fabulous time. Our trip was awesome. We had the best tour director. He was a wealth of knowledge about NYC. I will definitely try to get him again when I take another group to NYC. It is an on-the-go tour and the students were never bored. Our bus driver was great. I have no complaints at all. I can only say good things. I highly recommend this NYC trip to all teachers or whoever wants to take a group of students with EF.

  3. Travel Early

    My son had an amazing time traveling on his own (school trip). I was worried at first but I felt reassured with the communication and updates from the travel leaders. I was impressed with the itinerary and the richness of the content and cultural experience. I beleive that my son really had the new york state of mind experience. I’m thankful for the tour organizers, their leadership and in making sure the kids had a grand time. I almost wished I chaperoned.

  4. Astonishing Experience!

    My students and I shared an unforgettable experience during our NYC trip. Parents have already told me students are ready to sign up for my next trip. Students stated our trip was so much more fun than traveling with family. From the start to the end, we saw everything on our list including making stops in Brooklyn and Harlem. Everyone on the trip had a different favorite moment. I am so excited that everyone's experience was so rewarding.

  5. Excellent Experience

    My 6th grade child enjoyed every moment of the trip. This is a well organized tour from airport drop off, hotel accommodations, meals, tours and return flight. His group was able to see all the highlights of New York that every tourist should see. As a parent, I did not have to worry about anything because my son was able to update me regularly. I can tell his excitement every time he sends me pictures of NY attractions. I highly recommend this trip. It’s worth the value of your money, well organized, safe and educational.

  10. NYC

    Ok so my trip was good except for the part where we got onto another bus to take us back to the airport to leave he was the rudest bus driver in the world and i didn’t like him because he cussed us out but i loved the trip all before that
