Our WSA Krakow guide truly wanted us to have a great time and make the most of our trip. I definitely recommend!

Dawid showed us all the major sights and has an extensive knowledge of the city's history! He definitely made the experience better with his knowledge and his kind and fun personality. On the last day he took us outside the city in his car to a spot not many tourists know about to get a panoramic view of Krakow! This was my third WSA tour (I also went to Budapest and Amsterdam) and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn from a local and have an amazing trip.

Dawid was an excellent tour guide. He took us to all the famous places of Krakow and explained their significance and relevant history. He answered my many questions patiently and with significant knowledge. He was also very nice and fun to be around. Seeing as we were travelling as a group he made sure everyone was always okay and I felt very safe. This was my second tour with WSA (have previously been to Budapest) and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get to know a city from a true local. Overall, it was an amazingly fun trip!!

Rhianne was an amazing guide! Her insight on the Italian cities really brought them to life on the trip. Her extensive knowledge of the areas kept the trip efficient and allowed us to see the most we could in the week. She was a delight to be around and truly made the trip for me, can't imagine the experience would have been as great without her!

This was an amazing trip and I cannot give enough praise to the tour guide Rhianne Taylor for coming up with this amazing itinerary. 10 days in Italy already sounds amazing but what put this trip above all the ones I have previously solo'd is my tour guide. She was so knowledgeable about the cities, history, and Italian culture. She also had many of her own personal stories which made the trip all the more memorable. She took us to all the must see sites and always gave us free time with suggestions of what to do and see. I did not feel like any time was wasted. I cannot express how much fun this trip was and I would recommend it to everyone.

We had such an incredible week in Italy! The trip was definitely made by our guide Rhianne. It wouldn't have been such an incredible experience without her! Her knowledge about each city and place we went made it such an educational and cultural experience. I learned so much and had a blast every minute! Since Rhianne has lived in two of the four cities we visited we really felt like we got the local experience! Everywhere we went was incredible and WSA and Rhianne organized it perfectly! I would definitely recommend this program!

WSA did a great job accommodating a large group from my study abroad program. Dublin was a great weekend and they made meals, going out, and activities easy for us to all do together. It was nice to have a planned out weekend especially when Ireland was so crowded that weekend.

Everything was great about St. Paddy's day weekend! The staff was awesome and the hostel was also nice.

The trip was absolutely perfect. The itinerary had everything you would want to do in Amsterdam, and more! The local guide, Arthur, was perfect and he made the trip very comfortable (especially in the Red Light District) and fun! He encouraged us to take in the culture and history of the liberated city. I could not have asked for a better weekend in Amsterdam!

This weekend was amazing! So well planned and ran smoothly. All of the attractions we went and saw were exquisite and extremely interesting. Felt like a cultural experience rather than a weekend tour through the city. The tour guide was outstanding and helped us find cool places to go during our spare time and showed us some amazing local eateries that we never would've found on our own. Highly recommend to students studying abroad as I met other students from all over Europe on the trip.

Kevi was AWESOME! I would've been so incredibly lost without his guidance and knowledge of the city! I loved getting to see Paris with other students studying abroad, too(:
