10 Day trips

The heart of our short term trips is our host outings.  We'll provide you with English Speaking locals, whom we've pre-screened and interviewed to take you out and show you the real life at your destination.  This may include a meal in their favorite restaurant, drinking tea in a local cafe, or even a visit with their family for a home-cooked meal. In addition, you'll see amazing tourist sites, participate in a cultural seminar, and generally have the time of your life!

Short term trips are typically 7 to 10 days during Fall Break, Spring Break, Winter Break, or the summer, and teams of 6 to 12 are preferred.  If you have the time off, we can tailor a trip to your time constraints.  We will arrange accommodations and all activities.  All you need to do is show up!
