ALL YOUR LOGISTICS IN ONE PLACE
Traveling abroad shouldn't be stressful. Whether you're a student traveling alone, a faculty organizing a group trip, or a professional coming with a cohort, we have the logistics to support your trip. We manage all of our own lodging, transportation, and activities, ensuring that all of our visitors always get the best value.
We own a 16-passenger 2018 Hyundai H350 and have a trusted, full-time driver with years of experience in public transportation. For larger groups, we contract additional buses and drivers through our trusted transportation partner.
All students are required to purchase international health insurance. We have trusted English-speaking medical doctors and mental health experts on call who are available for situations which do not require emergency attention in a hospital.
All of the tourism activities and additional lodging we organize for students has been previously vetted by our staff to check for professionalism, accuracy, safety, and more. We book all activities and lodging ourselves, not through outside agents.
We have our own fully-equipped house in San Jose with beds for up to 24 students or 20 students and two faculty. For larger groups, we rent additional houses nearby. Keep scrolling for pictures and more information.
