Best Summer- TFT Spain, Portugal, and Morocco

I had the best experience at Travel for Teens. I went on my trip alone and was nervous about making friends but within the first day I made friends I still talk to daily. The itinerary was clearly very well thought out, the hotels were great, and all the activities were incredibly enjoyable. The councillors were very organized, fun, and were always there if we needed something. The pacing was something that was especially amazing, I never felt bored or like we were going too fast. This trip improved my knowledge of the areas we visited as well as my independence and responsibility. I made lifelong memories and had the best summer of my life, I’m so glad I got to experience it. I truly could not recommend Travel for Teens more.

Pros
  • small group enviroments
  • well organized
  • very fun

Amazing

I was lucky enough to go on a two week trip to Thailand this semester and it was one of the best experiences of my life! We discovered so many new places, got to volunteer to help improve a school and learned so much about the nature, animals, and rich country found in different areas. The food was amazing and the counselors made the experience absolutely perfect. The most fun trip of my life, I cannot recommend TFT enough!
Loved it, did this my first year out of Hugh school and I loved meeting everyone!

Amazing!

I took part in the Portugal, Spain, and Morocco Europe for Older Teens program. This trip was without a doubt one of the highlights of my life. The itinerary includes a good mix of activities, including sight-seeing, shopping, beach relaxation, dining, and more. The counselors are fantastic! They are terrific company and add to the enjoyment of the journey. They care deeply about everyone on the trip and are very friendly and relatable. Every city was unique, and the tour did an excellent job of allowing us to explore all each one has to offer in a short amount of time. The cuisine is fantastic, and I enjoyed trying dishes that were particular to each place. I loved that we were also given our own time to explore too, with the staff nearby easy to contact if we needed them. I created lifelong memories and wonderful friends with whom I still keep in touch with.

Ultimate 30 Days in Europe Experience

Traveling with TFT into Europe for 30 days was an incredible experience that I am so glad that I went on. Not only was it fun and cool by seeing all the different places around Europe such as the Romanian Colosseum or the Eiffel Tower, the most memorable experience was making so many new friends. During my 30 days in Europe I have made such close bonds with the people that I have traveled with that they will last a lifetime. Not only was it exciting traveling with the other campers, it was also fun meeting the consolers as they were all friendly and supportive. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone as this will be one of your most memorable things in your life.

Pros
  • You do so many activities every day.
  • You see so many cool places
  • You really get to immerse within the culture.
Cons
  • Lots of walking, around 25,000-30,000 steps per day.
  • Some of the housing is a bit cramped.
  • Some of the breakfast aren’t the best.

An Extraordinary Experience

If I could time travel my Teen for Travel trip would be the first thing I go back to. This extraordinary trip provided me with so many amazing experiences and memories that I will forever cherish. From the planned activities to the free time we had with friends to discover new cities by ourselves, the experience was a 10/10. I communicate everyday with other students that were on my trip who went from strangers across the country to lifelong friends. The counselors were beyond caring, always putting the group and our needs and wants first. The trip was well planned, the counselors were on top of our safely and got us to whatever destination we needed to be on time. If there was a word to describe the consistent theme of this trip it would be nothing more than fun, fun, and fun!! I cannot wait for next summer to join Teen for Travel again.

Utterly exhilarating and life-changing!

Traveling with TFT absolutely changed my life. When I left, I had never set foot outside of the United States; when I returned, I'd added three new countries (and their public transit systems) to my list! The trip gave me a taste of a few cultures so different from my own in the best way possible. Really, TFT opened my eyes to all the world has to offer. It was a whirlwind of once-in-a-lifetime experiences: climbing the Duomo in Florence, cooking lessons and flamenco shows in Barcelona, wandering centuries-old streets in Rome, and tasting authentic French pastries in Paris. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to explore Europe with Travel For Teens—if you get the chance, take it!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Step out of your comfort zone—don't be afraid to try something new! You will not regret a new experience; even if you don't like it in the end, you have a new story to tell your friends and family. You will regret missing out if you don't jump at the opportunity!

Trip to Hawaii is Once in a Lifetime Experience

I went on a service trip to the Big Island in Hawaii and it was the most fun I have ever had traveling. I was quite stressed going into it, but TFT made the trip an enjoyable and non stressful experience. The activities that we did on the trip are beyond what I would ever do with my family. ATV riding in a coffee farm, snorkeling in a beautiful reef, and going to one of the highest telescopes in the world, is something that I would have never done without TFT. My counselors were absolutely amazing and really did care about what us, the teens wanted to do. They made sure that all our needs were fulfilled and that everyone was getting along and having a great time. They allowed us to really take in the culture and environment surrounding us, and made the trip both fun and educational. I created many friendships on the trip and I still keep in touch with them daily. Without TFT, I would have never had this life-changing experience. If you have the opportunity, I would highly recommend a trip with TFT.

The best trip ever!

I took the Italy and Greece trip for Older Teens. Going on this trip changed my entire life to say the least. Being able to meet new people, see new faces, and explore new territory was awe-inspiring. The amount of time to take this trip was the perfect amount of time to pick up on new culture, see new faces, and hear amazing stories. The food was food that you'd never tasted and it will change your life, I promise! The friends that I met were one of a kind and I am even going to the same college as one of them! Overall, this was the best trip ever.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take in every second of the trip, you won't regret it. I know for sure this will take my life and what overseas travels I do to another level. For example, I am studying abroad in college for my specific major, I am so excited. It was all thanks to this trip.
