This was my 4th trip with TFT and each one is better than the next! I absolutely loved this trip because, although it was only 10 days, I felt as if I got to see the best that Europe had to offer! We do activities and see the sights from the afternoon of the day we arrive until the dinner on the final night. My favorite part of this trip was exploring Cinque Terre on a gorgeous scenic hike, and topping the day off with a swim in the crystal clear ocean. Another highlight was paragliding in Switzerland. Definitely an experience I will never forget. I feel so safe on every trip I go on and I truly feel like a traveler when I am with TFT. This company has really changed my life and I can't wait until next summer to do another trip!
Travel for Teens France Language (22 days)
Submitted by Sara - Wesleyan School | February 04, 2016
This trip was the highlight of my summer, and I loved everything about it. On this trip we got to spend 18 days in Paris, so we really got to experience the culture and lifestyle of Parisians. This also gave us the opportunity to visit smaller, less touristy areas of Paris, which was awesome. After the time in Paris, we went to Nice to relax and experience a different area of France. The itinerary on this trip includes everything you could want to see in Paris, but it isn't very strict. A unique and truly special aspect of Travel for Teens is their willingness to change the itinerary based on students' interests. Having a loose schedule really allows students to make the trip their own.
One of the main things I enjoyed about this trip was the counselors. They were absolutely incredible, and they really took the time to get to know students. They were so interesting and kind, and it was obvious that they loved what they were doing. Every night, the counselors would post pictures and send emails to the parents and students including a detailed description of what we did that day. My parents appreciated this so much, and they loved being able to read the emails while seeing us in all of the amazing pictures.
I absolutely loved my summer with TFT and would recommend this trip to anyone, even those who haven't taken French classes!
Best Experience EVER!!!!!

My trip to Thailand with Travel for Teens was the best 3 weeks of my life. I was given the opportunity to intimately learn about elephants, experience true Thai culture with the natives, test my skills at not-so-white water rafting in the Pai River, observe the beautiful temples of Bangkok, adventure into the clear blue waters of Koh Tao, and relax on peaceful beaches and with wonderful Thai massages on Koh Samui. While the activities were incredible, what truly made my experience special were my wonderful trip director, fabulous counselors, and lifelong friends I met on the trip. Before the trip, I was extremely nervous to travel on my own for the first time at 15 years old. But as soon as I met the TFT crew at the airport, my nerves vanished and I knew I was going to have a blast. The counselors and trip directors respected us as friends rather than treating us like immature children. They constantly made sure we were safe while still having fun. My mom was especially grateful for the daily email updates from our trip leaders. The trip would not have been the same without our trip director Keith. Within the few weeks we were in Thailand, I became extremely close with Keith, along with all the other students. Everyone shared plenty of stories, which made us all both laugh and cry, and countless memories that will last me a lifetime. I would give anything to go back and relive my Thailand excursion so I could spend another 3 weeks growing as an individual, while spending plenty of time with the people that quickly became my second family. I truly believe this trip made me a bigger and better person with an increased awareness of the world around me.
My Amazing Experience in Greece
Submitted by Gabrielle Eckersall - Barrington High School | December 27, 2015
This TFT Greece was on of the most amazing experiences of my life. Not only was the country beautiful, welcoming, and kind, but my trip leaders and the trip itinerary was beyond belief. I arrived in Athens with little knowledge on Greece and left 13 days later with an abundance of knowledge about how amazing this country is. All of that would not have been possible without my trip leaders and the way TFT leads their trips!

I went on the trip to Berlin, Paris, and London. It was an amazing trip. Seeing the Eiffel Tower at sunset was amazing and something I'll never forget. It was just the perfect trip. I made so many life long friends and can't wait to do it all again.
