CarolynAge: 18 or youngerFemaleRoberts, WisconsinAn amazing experience overall!01/13/2015How could this program be improved?
In a couple hotels we stayed at, the wifi wasn't reliable. I understand this is the hotels' fault, not the tour company, but if we could be set up to stay in hotels where we'll be able to call our families after our days of adventure that would be really helpful. This especially relates to teenagers who probably have worried parents at home who would really like to hear from them.

No suggestions for improvement. Alex, our tour guide kept us informed & organized. I felt safe and "taken care of" throughout our European tour.

I would change the business side of it, wherein host families are payed a certain amount. I was lucky and experienced a brilliant trip but stories were passed around of host families who only took in the exchange student for the money and did nothing to make them feel welcome, at home, or engaged in french life.
