      The chance to experience all these beautiful places with great friends and counselors is so unique. I am grateful to have discovered Travel For Teens after graduating high school. It was my dream as a senior to go abroad and this trip answered all my prayers. Thank you so much for helping me step outside my comfort zone and get to see parts of the world I had only dreamed of, if only for two weeks! At first it can seem a little unusual, but once you start talking to other people in the group, you realize they are just like you. You start to make connections that form on their own because you see there are other teens who share your interests and help you adjust. The staff know just what to do and where to go. It was the time of my life, I loved it and feel inspired by the wonderful gift of traveling with TFT.

      The Travel for Teens trip to Florence, Cinque Terre, Switzerland and Paris was the best experience of my life! The itinerary for each location was full of amazing activities and excursions that helped me experience the culture of each city like a local. The counselors made sure we always felt safe, but gave us freedom to explore on our own. There is nothing I would change about my two weeks in Europe as they were the best of my life! Thank you Travel for Teens for some unforgettable memories.

      I went on this trip in the summer and it was absolutely thrilling!! I loved all the little adventures we went on and activities we got to do. One of my favorite parts was snowboarding in the Swiss Alps, which was like nothing I've ever experienced before. Another experience that sent my adrenaline soaring was canyoning, which was one of the most amazing things I've ever done!! My group was very small on this trip, which enabled us all to get really close, including the counselors. By the end of the trip we were all super comfortable together, which made the experience even better. The alps were breathtaking and were the perfect setting for this exhilarating trip!! I recommend this trip to anyone looking for adventure filled, unforgettable memories!!

      Best time of my life!! I would recommend this trip to anyone. I absolutely loved every second of this trip and would go back in a heartbeat. I made so many new friendships throughout this trip and was able to have so many great experiences like walking through the gardens of Versailles to paragliding through the Swiss Alps. I recommend this trip to anyone who is new to traveling or looking for an amazing time. The TFT staff were absolutely amazing and created such a fun experience for us. No one else could replicate an experience like they create for us, it was so incredible. I don't know any other group I would've rather been in. I went home with 23 new friends from all over the U.S and an experience that helped me grow as a person and want to explore more.
