“I went into the trip alone, not knowing anyone and I was scared that I wouldn’t make friends. At the airport, the counselors brought all of the girls together and we all instantly clicked and now I love everyone and made many new friends.”
Hudson Greenfader, New York, New York
“The trip is certainly once in a lifetime. The people I met, the sights I witnessed and the overall experience were absolutely remarkable. I met many new people and explored tons of new places. I couldn’t be any happier.”
Julian Candido, Westmount, Quebec
“This was the most amazing trip I have ever been on. I loved everything and wish it would never end. The counselors were incredible and I considered them my parents. They were my role models and confidence boosters. I wouldn't trade this trip for the ENTIRE world.”
What is the difference between an Active Teen Tour and a Global Adventure program?
Our Active Teen Tours offer larger group sizes (generally 35-48 participants) and travel in deluxe motor coaches. Accommodations include quality hotels and fun college residences. A few western USA itineraries also include a few nights of deluxe camping.
Global Adventures are smaller group experiences (generally up to 26 participants). Groups travel by private motor coaches and occasional public transportation internationally, and use passenger vans in the USA. While these programs have a slightly bigger focus on adventure travel, we stay in quality hotels and lodges, always ensuring a good night’s rest.
Is a passport/visa needed to travel?
A valid passport is required when traveling internationally. To be valid, your expiration date should be 180 days (6 months) after the planned date of return. Requirements vary per country and can change at any time for reasons beyond our control. It is the responsibility of the traveler to verify appropriate documentation. For more information please visit our Passports & Visas page.
What is the group size on your programs?
Group sizes vary depending on the program type. Generally speaking, these are the number of participants by program type:
Active Teen Tours: 35-48 participants
Global Adventures: 18-26 participants
Community Service: 15-24 participants
Pre-College Enrichment programs: 45-80 participants in Barcelona, Florence, and Montreal. 150-190 participants in Los Angeles.
Please note that this is a guideline. Actual group sizes may vary and will be confirmed in late spring.
