Quotes from Previous FM Travel Abroad Experiences: 

“This is the best group of travelers I have ever had the pleasure to lead! I have lead hundreds of students groups and FM’s students are the best prepared and most respectful of them all, I will truly miss you all…” — EF Tour Guide. 

“I’ve been doing my best to think of my favorite part of the trip, and I’ve realized that it wasn’t anything specific but a sequence of somewhat small events that really have stuck with me.” 

“…none of us thought we were going to fit in and how lucky we all were to have had such a wonderful group.. Trying to put it into better words and somewhat falling short I said the only way I could explain it, was that I had at least one meaningful one-on-one conversation with everyone on the trip, and I thought that was beautiful…” 

“…I have made memories and friends for life…” 

“My favorite moments were not being able to say I experienced just “London”, but being able to experience the culture and history with friends and people who I now call friends. That’s what makes the difference.”
