Memorable trip :)

The planned itinerary was perfect. I'm usually not one for guided tours or having my days planned out for me, I kind of like to just roam and see things at my own pace, but choosing to do the WSA tour of Paris was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Our guide Kevi did a perfect job of giving us just the right amount free time intermixed with the planned parts of the itinerary, and he presented all of the important information on each site in a way that was exciting and fun. I was able to experience so much more of Paris in two days than I ever could have seen on my own.

Too many wow's to count. Paris is the one place I have dreamed of going my whole life, and I am so glad I chose to experience it for the first time through the WSA tour. I was absolutely blown away by everything about the city, but the highlights were the Eiffel Tower (of course), and the bike and boat tours. The tours were an awesome, unique way to see the city. Seeing the Eiffel Tower as it lit up and sparkled from a boat on the Seine was one of the most surreal moments of my life.

Thank you so much for planning such a great tour! I really couldn't have asked for more out of it. Also many, many thanks to Kevi, for making our time in Paris so fun and memorable!

Couldn't have experienced Amsterdam like we did without WSA.

Went to Amsterdam with WSA. Our tour was guided by Andy Steves. Showed up on Thursday, left Sunday morning. There is absolutely no way we could've experienced so much of Amsterdam in only a weekend without WSA. Highly recommend WSA to any study abroad students who only have 2-4 days to 'do' a city. The tour was perfect- your participation is totally up to you. Just the right amount of free time to do your own thing, but also enough structure that you accomplish all you wanted to do in the city, from the Red Light District, to Anne Frank's House, to the Museums, etc etc. Andy's expertise was invaluable- he knew the answer to literally every question asked by a student. Would definitely do it again if given the chance. Great money value, as well.

Loved WSA Paris!

The itinerary was amazing! I wish that Versailles was part of the tour, but I saw everything that I think of when someone says Paris. I thought that it was a lovely experience, the restaurant where we had group dinner should have been a little bigger for the size of the group that we had as seating was extremely uncomfortable, but nonetheless enjoyable. I loved the bike tour, I think that was one of my favorite activities besides the bell tower of Notre Dame. My wow moments came when Kevi took us to the picnic island at night because I felt like I was participating in a popular French activity, and for once falling out of tourist mode. "Kevi was amazing! He showed us and told us about the major sites in Paris and had loads of information. Our first day, a group of girls was half an hour late for a meeting time to run to dinner, and we did wait for them. At the Louvre on saturday, Kevi informed us that if we were late to meet at 12:30 for lunch, he would assume that whoever was not there had found something else to do and would meet up with us at the hostel later that night. While we were at lunch, a group of girls were getting frustrated with Kevi saying that he left them behind, when they were informed that he would leave if they were not there on time. Also, our first night, one girl had gotten stuck on the metro, but before Kevi had time to turn around and go get her, she'd found her way back to the hostel.

I feel that being a tour guide, it is hard to please everybody. I think that Kevi did the most OUTSTANDING job and I have nothing but good things to say about him. He's personable, informative, funny, and he knows exactly what we want to see when touring around his city. He's amazing!!"

Kevi was amazing :)

I think everything was really well-organized, and everything was planned out well. The eiffel tower. Can't believe I saw that!!

I had a lot of trouble with the bike tour though... I hadn't ridden a bike in over 6 years, so I struggled... a lot. I fell a few times, but the bike tour guys were really nice and supportive. But once I got the hang of it, it was really fun. Kevi was amazing!! He was so nice and funny. He really helped us out with anything we needed. A good or bad tour guide can definitely make or break an experience, and Kevi made it really great. Props to him :)

WSA Paris

Everything was great, however I wish there was not so much packed in the first and day. Maybe put the cruise or something on the second night.
