Something to Remember

This program was absolutely the best time of my life. I cannot express how much I enjoyed my time, and how badly I wish I was back. Everyday was an absolute dream. Greenheart is for sure making dreams come true. If you are hesitant in investing in the program, I promise you it’s worth everything. It was an amazing experience and I don’t regret anything. Traveling is a dream, and it takes a lot of character to go out there and explore and learn new things. For all the parents reading this, I would definitely send your child! However, always research everything no matter what. I was new to this and I wish I had just researched a little more about currency. Other than that, everything was great and money was no issue once I exchanged. Thank you Greenheart!

My Stay in Florence

My experience with Greenheart travel was unforgettable. I lived with a host mom and four other international students for three weeks and we all attended the language classes together on weekdays. When we had free afternoons we would walk all over Florence and by the end of our stay I felt like I had truly lived in the city like any other Italian. If there is one thing I loved about this program more than anything else, it was the chance to explore in the afternoons. This way, I could search out and go to places that interested me personally, like San Lorenzo Chiesa. The friends I made during my trip are incredible and I would definitely recommend this travel program to anyone with a desire to freely explore a new country while learning the language as well.

Nothing Compares!

This summer I got to live and study in Florence, Italy and it was the most amazing two weeks of my life. If you are looking for an experience that will teach, challenge, and inspire you all at the same time then this is definitely the one. To call what happened a 'trip' doesn't do it justice. With Greenheart Travel, you get an adventure. Every minute was jam-packed with fun activities and friends.

What would you improve about this program?
None of this was a big to deal to me or my family, but some travelers might want more initial communication with the host family. Also, there was a hold-up at the Florence airport when I arrived because we weren't given enough information for the airline to hand me over to Europass agents without involving security. (This would only apply to travelers flying as an 'unaccompanied minor'.)
