What were the group dynamics like? Was there close interaction or more of a tour group feel?

Do you feel the leaders facilitated "getting to know each other" exercises /activities and encouraged close group interaction amongst the kids? Or was it more of a tour group feel and you find your own way to meet others?

I wouldn't consider the experience as a "tour group feel" whatsoever. You get really close with the other travelers, as you spend all day every day with them. There are activities put in place to break some ice and learn names, but after that initial "awkward" stage of not knowing anyone else, you'll find that you bond with the other kids really easily. Everyone in the group doesn't want to "tour" the country, they want to experience the country, and that common interest creates bonds between everyone.
