All our student trips include the following:

"Whether we're looking for a local cafe to get a good espresso, a restaurant in Chinatown to get authentic dumplings, a shop that sells the city's most fashionable dresses (at half-price, of course!) or tickets to a hot Broadway show -- for that very night -- Barbara's team gets the job done perfectly!"
