For my first time planning this trip, Student Adventures helped me in every possible way.

I believe Student Adventures dedicated itself to the “details”.  Excellent Tour Consultant, excellent on-board Tour Directors, and top-notch Tour Guides.  Security at hotels for students – top-notch.  This company is responsive to your needs at all levels of service which is why I picked them over the many companies available.  I feel you should get what you pay for.
