We understand that just as no two teacher's desired outcome for a program is exactly the same, so we never create the exact same itinerary twice

Pupils enjoyed the more 'active' of the activities best

The Bali trip did indeed go well. I do think the pupils enjoy the more 'active' of the activities best, particularly enjoyed the river rafting. The pupils seemed to be fully engaged in the Balinese cooking workshop, definitely the eating part! The meals very good and the selection couldn't fail to please even the fussiest of eaters. Some of the pupils found the Mount Batur walk difficult, but the majority of the group gave it their best.

WH and his students traveled to Bali with etr in March 2014

The Nepal trip exceeded my expectations

The trip was wonderful, and both Kent and Vishnu were incredible guides. Our students were both impressed with the organization of the trip and delighted by their experiences. They particularly appreciated being able to help at the school and are already talking about donating/sponsoring children/going back in the summer. More than one of them didn’t want to leave Nepal and return to Kuwait at the end of the trip! Honestly, the trip exceeded my expectations, and I am planning on recommending that trips with etr become yearly occurrences for our group and others.

EK and her high school students ventured to Kathmandu for a week of service and exploration in February, 2014

The trip went great!

The trip went great! We are meeting with the students for the first time next week for a post-trip feedback session. I can give you more specific details then. Informal comments on highlights were: CHINA: Chinese food in Beijing, The Great Wall, Legend of Kungfu. In Hong Kong: Kadoorie Botanical Garden, Mr T's Chinese Granny, Ocean Park.

A memorable and successful experience

First of all, the trip was very good. I really want to thank you and etr for all of your hard work in making our trip a memorable and successful experience for the students - I know they will never forget the experiences. Our guide Alvaro, the sites and the food were all great. Thank you for timely responses to our emails, everything went quite smoothly when it mattered.

The overall experience was fantastic.

C.Z. and her students from Saudi Arabia explored France with etr in April 2014

The pupils and staff absolutely loved it !

The China trip was FANTASTIC! The pupils and staff (including me J) absolutely loved it. Big thank you to (etr program leader) Kent who was fantastic and helped insure all our needs were met and that everyone was happy. Thank you again for everything. I have put in a request for the trip to run again next year so hopefully I’ll be emailing you again soon asking for you to organise a 2015 trip to China for us!

S.B. and her 24 students from the UAE ventured to China with etr in April 2014.

I look forward to working with you and etr


Thank you for your help coordinating such a pleasant learning experience for our students. (etr tour leader) Lisette was a great help and we would love to have her lead our future tours. The local guides were very knowledgeable. The students have continued to talk about Vaclav since leaving Prague because he presented the facts in a fun and imaginative way that connected with them. Overall, our students had a very memorable trip and I look forward to working with you and etr as we plan our trip for next year

It really hit all the criteria I was hoping for

The (North Vietnam Community Service) trip was fantastic- it really hit all the criteria I was hoping for. As I have come to expect from etr it was well organized, well prepared and everything went off without any problems what so ever. Our two etr tour leaders were fantastic as well. Trang with her behind the scenes work/calls ahead etc., and lovely Xuyen who was bubbly, always smiling and positive. You have found a gem there. The house building and the whole village experience provided a true eye opener for the students. I should be able to give you some 2011 dates when I return from Easter break

Educational trip to Rome was wonderful

Our educational trip to Rome was wonderful, full of adventure and history; there were some moments so unforgettable and thank you for making our trip as pleasant as possible. I wish also that we can meet again on another etr adventure.

Overwhelmingly successful series of trips

This was an overwhelmingly successful series of trips and hugely enjoyed by all concerned. I am amazed that all went so smoothly given the numbers and diversity of destinations, etc.! You and your team did a most outstanding job of putting this together and making is work - thank you so much for this!

Feedback from the students has been remarkable. For many of them this was the experience of a lifetime and something they will remember and cherish for years to come. I think we achieved and exceeded the outcomes I had set for the initiative.

They are all floating on air

You may not realize how life-changing a trip like the one our students just experienced in Turkey usually is for kids from Syracuse, New York! They are all floating on air, hardly able to speak yet about the wonderful trip you planned for them. Chaperones as well. So I thank you for the care and expertise you always have with student groups. My hope is that Will, who has done two trips through ETR, and now Matt, who went to Turkey, will be inspired to do other travel in your capable hands.

Thanks for such an amazing China trip!

We made the best team with (etr tour leader) David again. The etr tour guide Bill was great too. I am now facing the truth that we are back, though our trip was so good that none of us wanted to come back. We all wanted to stay more, I guess good times are never enough.

This was my 3rd trip with David and Greg I know it’s too early now, but I had many, many conversations with the students and we’re all are happy to go to Hong Kong next year!
