What our teachers had to say about this destination
I was glad we had Zoe with us on the trip - it made the trip as we'd booked stuff together and it gave us an extra chaperone. She was excellent, knowledgable and great with the students.
Perfect. A real experience of a lifetime. Once again Zoe has been wonderful from start to finish. I look forward to continuing to work with her. Thank you once again.
