I love tft!

This was my first trip with tft and my first trip abroad! And I have nothing but positive things to say about tft. The way they organize the trip is incredible, I did not have to worry about anything. The counselors and other teens were so nice, supportive, and made the trip that much better. My parents loved the daily email updates and pictures, they said it felt like they were there with me. I enjoyed every single day. Tft is the best travel group out there! This is one trip I will never forget. I now have a new love for travel thanks to tft.

Memories to Last a Lifetime

The summer after my senior year, I had one question: how do I make this last summer before college unforgettable? I am so glad I chose Travel for Teens to help me accomplish this goal. Our counselors were unforgettable and awe-inspiring, having not only the credentials to guide such a trip (being fluent in multiple languages and an overqualified travel background) but having the necessary interpersonal skills to make a fun, safe trip that allowed freedom. Reflecting back, this freedom, whether present in the multiple options for daily activities such as hiking, shopping, sight-seeing, etc. immensely prepared me for the college lifestyle and future travel adventures I will be completing now on my own. Each location provided new experiences and adventures, being carefully selected to provide a different facet to create a well-rounded trip. Florence allowed me to expand on my art history background through experiencing the creative environment that inspired so many of my favorite artists and writers. Cinque Terre was the picturesque, coastal town that not only provided a beach haven but allowed for more personal interactions with the locals (a part of the TFT experience that I have found nowhere else). Switzerland provided an adrenaline rush while France was the perfect blend of culture, language, and adventure. I believe Travel For Teens’ format in quickly adjusting to different environments has made me more adaptable, a trait that most of my employers have commented upon and praised. This trip allowed me to mature and grow as a person, whether it be preparing me for college or my future job opportunities. Yet, ultimately, Travel For Teens provided the adventure filled summer I craved, blending fun and learning experiences with the wonderful opportunity to meet lifelong friends and mentors that will continue to influence me for years to come.

Time of My Life

I went on this trip July of 2017 and had the time of my life! I instantly made friends with everyone on the trip and that made the whole trip even more fun! Exploring new cultures and sites everyday, going shopping and trying unique foods, seeing historical landmarks and meeting new people, this trip was a dream! I highly recommend it. Go TFT!

Monks, Elephants, and Backstreet Boys

he year before I had an amazing time so before going on this trip I was nervous that it wouldn’t live up to the experiences from my last trip. However, this trip exceeded my expectations. Not only did we get to volunteer and help the elephants, we also had a cultural experience as we attempted the language by bargaining with vendors and constantly trying new foods as well as experiencing something new nearly everyday.
During the trip I also experienced my first 4th of July away from my family, however we still celebrated it. To begin the day it was our final day of rafting so we were rafting and traveling back to the hotel for the first half of the day, but for dinner we went to a restaurant having a 4th of July celebration where we feasted on ribs. We then ended up watching old firework shows before singing the backstreet boys with the hole restaurant even when the power went out.
Not only did I get all these cool new experiences, the people were awesome as well, I met some of my best friends on this trip. We bonded through rafting, being blessed by monks together, taking care of elephants, and more, which created a friendship that continues even now despite different timezones.
The experiences, service, and people all made this trip unforgettable and as I much as I miss this one, I am super excited for my next TFT trip!

TFT Sicily

This past summer, I went on the Sicily Community Service trip. This was my second Travel for Teens trip, and each one gets better! The home we stayed at was absolutely amazing. Right when we arrived, they welcomed us with open arms and big smiles. The location is absolutely incredible, and I immediately felt at home with the breathtaking scenery and sweet children running around. It was familiar enough to feel comfortable, but different enough to really open my eyes. It was the perfect balance of rewarding service and exploring throughout the island. The family made us feel like another member of their own. We helped set the table, make dinner, and even celebrated a birthday. Overall, it was an absolutely incredible experience, one that is very close to my heart. I will always remember the friendships I made with so many of the children, and the memories that I made with so many. Thank you TFT for such an amazing experience. I will always remember it!-Isabel M.
