  1. New York and Philly

    This tour was incredible not only for the students, but for the adults as well. Our tour director (shout out Skye one time!) was incredibly knowledgeable and very flexible with the needs of our group. After having attended this trip, I would absolutely do another one with me and my friends. It was seamless, even after some unfortunate events. I wish we had more time!

  2. The Big Trip

    At first I thought this trip would be a party. Boy was I wrong. I think this was the most educational trip I've ever been on. It may sound like it was boring, just because it was a school related experience, but there is a whole different aspect to it. The tour guides were great, and occasionally hysterical in every historic destination we visited. There were some great sights to see that weren't as historic, like the skyscrapers in downtown. But what I was most excited about was the food experience. While some of these restaurants aren't in the prettiest locations, the food is nearly impeccable. If you want your kid to have an amazing experience with a historic city to explore, I'd highly recommend a trip like this. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity.

  3. Awesome experience

    This was such a great tour basically because Skye our tour guide was amazing! The itinerary was perfect and just long enough for my fifth grader. It was a memory maker but mostly again because of our guide and bus driver Ken.

  4. Amazing Experience

    It was my first time to allow my 13 year old son to go on a trip on his own. He was so excited and he really enjoyed his trip. It was also his first time to see Philadelphia and New York.

  5. Awesome Tour Guide

    Skye was our tour guide for NYC/Philadelphia and she is absolutely terrific. She had lots of knowledge about everything.

  6. Amazing City Experience!

    The city of New York was an amazing place to visit. The places we went were amazing and had a lot of history to them. The only bad part of the trip was the heat and the crowded subways.

  7. Good Time

    The tour guide was incredible! The other group we were partnered with with unruly, which took away from my group's experience.

    The food and hotels were of good quality.
