  • Having a bike in Amsterdam..

    Posted by Andy Steves on November 2, 2011.

    Just yesterday I rented a bike for my stay here in Amsterdam. Having a bike in this city really opens it up to you. You can get cross-town in a zip rather than spending almost $5 for a single tram ride. It's incredible just how well-thought out the bike-friendly system is here: from the bike … More »

  • How We Stack Up- A Few Thoughts On The Competition

    Posted by Andy Steves on October 20, 2011.

    Since beginning my internship with WSA, many people have asked me “what makes us better?”  By researching the competition and exploring numerous other tour options, I think I have a unique perspective on why WSA is truly the best option.

    Hola

                I am writing this on my Lufthansa flight from San Francisco to Madrid!  After a wonderful (and hectic) weekend packing, shopping, saying goodbye, weighing my suitcase, unpacking, crying, and more packing, I’m finally on my way.  It’s strange to begin an adventure that I … More »

  • An Afternoon in Sevilla

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 14, 2011.

    I was just in sevilla giving a talk to some students beginning their semester abroad. I had been here before, but had really forgotten what a cool town it is. The Spanish love-of-life permeates this city and the streets are flowing with people of all ages at all hours.

  • First Chunnel Ride

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 6, 2011.

    Today I went on my first Chunnel ride and I gotta say it was smoooooth! to the point where it was almost too easy. I had an 11:13am departure, so I made my way on Paris' great metro system to the Paris Nord Train Station where I filled out a UK entry card and flew through security. I found my … More »

Happy Backpackers

I definitely have WSA to thank for my exceptional experience in Amsterdam. One would think 4 days isn't enough to tour a city but WSA facilitated an optimum weekend full of sightseeing and fun. Amsterdam may have a notorious reputation for its lax drug and sex culture but there‚Äôs so much more to the city. Luckily, our tour guide, Arthur, native to the Netherlands, steered us away from the tourist traps and showed us around his beloved city, highlighting all of its gems. I'd definitely like to try other WSA trips in the future. It's hassle free traveling with an awesome itinerary - nice that the tour guides are flexible with the schedule and willing to cater the itinerary to the group's interest! Highly recommend WSA to any student with only a weekend to see a city.
