Outstanding Leaders

Our Trip Directors and Trip Leaders are quite a talented bunch! They’ve got a knack for building dynamic groups and creating a very warm and welcoming environment. You’ll find many teachers, educators, and former camp counselors who double as world travelers, volunteers, band members, ski instructors, flash mob choreographers and so much more. We promised you great leadership on all of our programs. The following are just some of the notes we received thanking us and saying we delivered!

Brandon’s trip director Mike was incredible. The bond that he and Brandon developed was priceless (like a big brother). I thought the experience of traveling would be great for Brandon but never imagined that such a strong friendship and bond would be built between the two. This will be a friendship that will last a very long time.

My director Marissa had just the right amount of patience, passion, and poise to lead a successful trip. She is a role model and a true example of leadership.
Jacob Weber, Highland Park, Illinois

Jeffrey’s director Jared was instrumental in making this experience fun and memorable.  The staff had enormous energy, they set a very positive tone from the beginning, helped the kids get to know each other and were able to get them out of their comfort zone to do things they wouldn’t normally do. We can’t say enough great things about them.
Irene & Fred Gordon, Great Neck, New York

Jonathan had a wonderful program. After having been on a different tour company, there is no comparison. The staff was great. According to Jonathan, Gavin is amazing when it comes to dealing with kids. The other leaders were great as well. Jonathan made some great friends. Thank you for providing him with an unforgettable 3 weeks!
Stacey & Marc Berk, East Brunswick, New Jersey

Rachel had a wonderful experience.  The leaders, Danny, Nikki and Joelle led the trip with great heart and soul and helped to create some life-changing moments for our daughter. We are very grateful to all of you and look forward to future trips. 
Barbara Carr & Herb Goodman, Dallas, Texas

Ilana had a wonderful time in Costa Rica. One part that made the trip so amazing was the leaders JP and Heidi. JP seemed to have endless energy and a natural knack for working with young people. His humor and warm personality instilled a sense of comfort. In fact, Ilana said she would not have tried many of the things if not for JP. Heidi was absolutely lovely. She really worked hard consistently to make sure everyone was happy and comfortable with the experience. I feel that the staff was the difference between a good time and an amazing time. Thanks for the wonderful summer experience!
Melissa Regenbogen, Ardsley, New York

Thank you for giving Robert and Michael “the summer of their lives.” The reviews are outstanding. The leadership was something everyone at your company should be proud of. Their director was the most informative and trustworthy leader, who in addition to being competent, was “so incredibility fun and fantastic.” The trip was filled with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities (an expression that is usually an exaggeration). My husband and I cannot thank you enough for providing this exciting opportunity and for executing with such excellence.
Jane & Ted Konigsberg, Miami, Florida

The staff Joe and Kiki was amazing! Dana cannot praise them enough. Dana said they worked so hard and really did everything possible to make this trip what it was.
