"I traveled to San Sebastián and Biarritz with a group of students for years. John and Mark were our go-to guys on these trips, facilitating the language school, cultural activities, and homestays. They are knowledgeable, patient, fun, and great with high school travelers.
They really take the stress off and make the experience seamless and easy. In short, I wouldn’t take students to San Sebastián or Biarritz without Mark and John as my leaders on the ground."
