Trip to New York City

I loved working with Harmeet in planning our trip to NYC! She was helpful, positive, responsive, and friendly. Harmeet worked thoughtfully with me to help craft an experience that matched our needs and was flexible as new or unanticipated needs arose. The materials provided to me helped me lead the trip with clarity once we were in the city. I so appreciated that Harmeet was available throughout the whole trip by phone and text to help us navigate issues as they arose.

Summer Canada Trip

I want you to know that the trip was awesome! The hotels were great, in perfect locations and in good condition. The tours were very enjoyable. Each of the tour guides were very informative and willing to answer any questions my group had. My students and their parents could not stop telling me what a wonderful trip it was and what a wonderful time they had!

My students' parents also made it a point to tell me that whenever they reached out to your company, they felt as if the responses were very timely and effective. They were very impressed with the support they felt from you. I also felt that exact same way! None of my sometimes tedious questions were unanswered in preparation for this trip.

I, of course, would recommend your company to anyone interested in conducting a tour group! And I look forward to our next adventure together.

First Trip to Branson

Five Stars all around. Everything went smooth on the planning part and the trip went just as smooth. I trust who I know, and I only plan to use Four Winds from now on.

Band trip to Orlando

I have been Director of Bands at Passaic Valley for 10 years and for 8 of those years I have worked with Four Winds Tours and Travels.  We have truly built a great relationship that has improved year after year.  They are extremely professional yet are very easy to talk to and work with.  They work for no body but the students in your group which is the way it should be.  Over the past years we have traveled with them to music performances in places such as Washington DC, Virginia Beach, Boston, Toronta and Orlando.  In the past we have performed at Walt Disney World and this year we performed at Universal Studios in Orlando.  Flying with such a large group can be such a problem but this year things were extremely smooth.  The airport was very accommodating and the Hotel we stayed at was absolutely beautiful.  Our park tickets were waiting for us when we arrived at our hotel, The Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and the bellhops were extremely helpful when storing our bags.  Even if we have had minor problems, Four Winds was able to help us out in the easiest way possible.  Each and every person in the Four Winds office has made them a joy to work with and I highly recommend them for any traveling needs.

Delaware State University Nova Scotia 2016 Trip

I found Four Winds Tours by just doing a simple google search of educational tours in Nova Scotia.  They were efficient and made sure to tailor every aspect of the tour to my specific needs.  As a historian of the African American experience, I was taking my students on a trip that learned about the Black Loyalists in Nova Scotia.  But after talking with Veena and Max at Four Winds, my trip became so much more.  They scheduled a trip to the Black Cultural Center and Africville.  It was also important that the food reflected our trip.  And so included in one of our dinners was Caribbean Bliss.  It was THE BEST FOOD EVER!  Thank you to Four Winds for taking the time to make sure my trip stayed focused to its mission.  I look forward to next year's trip with them.

Trip to Belgium

Four Winds Tours organized an excursion for my 21 high school students in Belgium. The tour was flawless! We were met promptly by tour guides and bus drivers everyday and the tour was organized exactly as I requested. We got to see the major sights of Brussels, Belgium, get a walking tour of the city, and the highlight of our trip was the tour of the chocolate factory. My students will forever have a wonderful memory of this trip. Our hotel was right in the center of the city and everything, including the restaurants where we ate, were within walking distance. The students got a lot of free time to explore on their own and to stock up on the best chocolate in the world. I would definitely work with Four Winds Tours again. The price was very reasonable (far less expensive than other companies) and we had a very clean hotel with friendly staff, lovely breakfasts and an overall fantastic excursion.

Ballet Workshop

Thank you so much for all your help and patience throughout this trip planning. From the transportation to the ballet workshop, every event in the itinerary was just right. I appreciate how hard your team worked to put it together, and how understanding you were with our families' varied financial situations. They all had such wonderful things to say about the entire process. :)

Senior Trip to Virginia Beach

I would highly reccommend Four Winds to any school organization.  All of us chaperones were so impressed with how smoothly everything went this past weekend.  It was a perfect trip!!

I just wanted to thank you and Four Winds for an amazing Senior Trip this past weekend to Virginia Beach!  We had an amazing time!  The trip was so organized and detailed! We appreciate all the hard work you put into organizing this trip.  I will definitely spread the world to my colleagues about Four Winds travel agency.

Day Trip to Broadway

I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and the entire staff at Four Winds. Our trip yesterday was a huge success. We had a great time, and our students really enjoyed the experience. The entire day ran like clockwork, and that's a testament to your company's thorough planning. Our driver, Andre Waterman, was prompt and provided helpful guidance on loading and unloading in the city. We actually pulled into the school parking lot at 6:30 pm on the dot. 

While the entire day was great, (the folks at Hard Rock Cafe were impressively efficient, and the show was entertaining) the Broadway workshop in particular was the highlight, and exceeded my expectations. You should know that everyone at Pearl Studios was not only professional, but kind as well. They treated our kids with respect and really made a positive impression on all of us. Our instructors, Stan Krifka and Jim Weitzer, pushed our kids musically, and were easy with praise and smiles. They had the entire group engaged for the duration of the workshop. They were also generous enough to lead a thoughtful question and answer session. Everyone was really pleased with the entire experience.

This was my first time leading a field trip, and the recommendations I got when I chose your company were completely accurate. The level of communication and guidance provided by your entire staff really made this a positive experience for me as well.

Broadway Drama Workshop

We had a great experience traveling to New York City with out Drama Club. The bus was very nice and the bus driver was very helpful. My students absolutely loved experiencing Les Miserables on Broadway and the amazing Broadway Classroom workshop we attended. They learned so much and are already looking forward to another trip.
