Our school's trip to NYC with our Performing and Visual Arts Academy students was nothing less than the trip of their lives. With events like: private tours of Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Broadway workshops with current and rising Broadway stars, lunch at Ellen's Stardust Diner, and still time to explore the city, who could ask for a more wonderful experience! Highly recommend!

Sorry for the late response. Let me take the opportunity on behalf of Mr. Urrico, our American History teacher and my students to thank you for an eventful trip. The students are all excited and have been reporting to others about the wealth of knowledge that they have amassed from the experience.
The tours were both educational and entertaining. The students have gathered a wealth of information. Additionally, they have expressed gratitude for being able to partake in the experience. The tour guides were knowledgeable and answered students' questions with accuracy and precision.
The bus driver was punctual and courteous and it was really a pleasure having him on the trip.
At the hotel we had an array for different items for breakfast. However, I had a few students (because of religious beliefs or dietary preference) who do not eat pork, they never had much of a preference in terms of protein. Eggs and pork sausage were the only two choices and some students didn't eat either. Apart from that one hitch the food and staff were great. In the future, I would prefer if all the boys are on the same floor of the hotel and the girls on a different floor. All the girls were placed on the same floor with the female chaperones but I think mistakenly a group of boys were placed on the same floor. Two of the boys have unisex names (Ariel and Julian). The children were well behave but in the future we might not be this lucky.
The food we had for dinner was exactly what the students wanted. They were served within an amazingly short period of time. The food was very good and the staff was courteous and professional.
Once again thank you for your hard work and dedication.

Dear Mr. Rishi Kumar, Tour Advisor & Operations Coordinator
I truly apologize for the delayed communication; but, I did not want one more day to pass without letting you know how truly extraordinary our school experience was on our Washington, DC tour that you organized and coordinated! Every single detail was thoughtfully planned and all of our requests were met with the utmost professionalism and respect. The accommodations were outstanding and our bus driver was absolutely exemplary in every way. He was patient, knowledgeable and friendly!
I have such profound gratitude for the memories that this well-organized excursion has provided my students, parents, staff and me. It exceeded my expectations! I am truly looking forward to future partnerships with you and your company.

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.
-Laura Smith, F. W. Parker Charter Essential School, New York City, October 2017
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. :)
