      The food, the hotels, the activities, the destinations, and our guide were all superb! I appreciated the size of our group and the ratio of chaperones to students. Every day was filled with fun, fabulous experiences. The highlights were the school visit, ziplining, and river rafting. I would definitely travel with this company again.
