Best Trip Ever!!

My tft greece and italy trip was so much fun. My group and i had so many fun and personal experiences. we did cooking classes, scuba diving and so many other once in a lifetime cultural immersions. we walked through many wonderful market places and swam in many beautiful beaches. i would do the trip again in a heart beat and always talk very highly of this particular tft trip. the hotels in greece were amazing and i was extremely happy with them. the counselors gave us so much room to explore and grow on our trip. i highly recommend this trip to any interested as it will reach every expectation you may have. TFT does an amazing job in any trip that they have on their site but this one has been my overall favorite. i had gone to the paris and barcelona trip and i loved that trip as well.

What would you improve about this program?
Overall i was extremely happy with the trip my only negative review of the trip was the housing situations in italy. the hotels in greece were more than amazing but the hotels in italy were a little less than i had hoped for.

I had so much fun!

This past summer, I went to Greece with Travel For Teens and I had a blast!! The campers were so nice, the staff were awesome, and we did and saw the most amazing things! We spent an entire day sailing on the water in a beautiful sail boat, stopping at different places and jumping off into the crystal clear water. We went to a couple museums, we walked up to the Parthenon. We also had a lot of free time to go shopping for souvenirs. We went to the beach like, all the time (I got super tan), we took a cooking class and had delicious and authentic Greek food. There was an optional excursion to go scuba diving, which was by far my favorite thing we did on the trip. I HIGHLY reccomend this trip to anyone, even if you’ve already been to Greece!

Greece Island Hopping For Older Teens

As I entered my summer after graduating high school and before starting college, I wanted to do something that created lifelong memories and allowed me to explore a new part of the world I’d never been to; TFT’s Greece Island Hopping for Older Teens did just that. I was thankful that TFT offered a program specifically for kids finishing 11th and 12th grade, because I wanted to be surrounded by other people my age, with similar experiences and interests as me. This program was the perfect way for me to explore the gorgeous beaches of Paros and Naxos, and also immerse myself in the greek culture through sampling different foods, and speaking with locals. Greece has so many unique and historical sights to offer, and this trip gave me the chance to see it all; the famous Acropolis in Athens, the postcard-like blue domed buildings of Santorini, the ancient grecian island Delos, and more. I could not have asked for a better trip to send me off into the new chapter of my life!

Best trip ever!!

This trip to Greece was my first time traveling with TFT and easily one of the best experiences of my entire life. I learned so much more about myself, traveling, and other cultures over those two weeks than I ever expected to. I did not know anyone on my trip before meeting up at the airport and ended the trip with best friends that I continue to talk to every single day (over three years later), and that I even coordinated TFT trips with the following summer. I got to try tons of new foods, go SCUBA diving for the first time, and explore ancient Greek history in person. This trip gave me the confidence and desire to travel more and take every opportunity given to me. I hold so many special memories from this trip and could not recommend TFT and Greece more!

Greece with TFT

This was my first TFT trip and I already cannot wait to go on my next one! Although I went into the trip a little nervous not knowing anyone, I came home with friends I wish I had known forever. The TFT counselors made us feel comfortable and always had our best interests in mind. I discovered an entire new culture that will stick with me forever and fell in love with the Greek food and scenery. I truly could not think of anything that would've made this trip a better experience. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to test my newfound independence, and that TFT gave me the confidence to seek out new travel opportunities for my future. I can't wait for summer 2018 with TFT!

What would you improve about this program?
The housing could have been improved because the wifi was often spotty which makes it difficult to keep in touch with family. Also, there should be an exact itinerary that doesn't mention things that cannot be accomplished due to time constraints.

Greece

This summer I did the Greece Athens and the Islands trip with TFT, and it was some of the best experiences of my life. Everybody on the trip was extremely friendly and enthusiastic, and on only the first day my two roommates and I became instantly close. Even months later, I still talk to them every day, and they’re two of my most valued friends. From trying new foods, to swimming in the perfect water, to historic and iconic sights, I was provided with unforgettable experiences and long-lasting friendships. Greece is such a unique environment, and the amazing trip leaders and itinerary allowed us to make the most of it. I am so happy I decided to take this trip, and could not thank TFT enough for all of their dedication and impact.

Best Teen Travel Group Ever!

I visited Greece (Athens, Santorini, Paros) as well as a day trip to Istanbul, Turkey with Travel for Teens and it was the best trip of my life. I have done three trips with Travel for Teens and let me tell you, they were all amazing. I travel a lot with my family. Every chance we get I travel with my parents but there is something so much different and special about travelling with a teen ravel group. Meeting new friends and counsellors. Experiencing a new culture on your own. Trying new foods and experiences! Everything was perfect. We had the best Greek food. We went so so many museums and saw the best scenes/views of Athens. We spent a say in a boat. Went donkey riding. Went to many beaches. It was an amazing trip with lots of memories.

Greece TFT

When I first walked into Newark airport to make my group flight I was incredibly nervous. I pondered the thought of going to a new country with people I had never met and my hands began to shake. However, the second I saw the TFT family members, dressed in bright Travel For Teens shirts, I instantly became less nervous . I was welcomed by smiles and friendly faces and it was in that moment that I knew my trip with TFT was going to change my life. Whether it was dinners in Athens, donkey riding in Santorini, or boat riding in the Mediterranean, I always had a smile on my face. My trip with Travel for Teens was unforgettable and I still continue to wear the friendship bracelet we were all given on our final night in paradise.

What would you improve about this program?
I would suggest adding one more day at the islands. We spent most of the trip in Athens, which was lovely, but I feel as though everyone wanted more time in Santorini or Paros.
