Each and every local guide made sure we had a fun and stress-free experience, and we got to know them as more then just tour guides, throughout walks through the cities and delicious group meals, we all bonded!" - Jennifer B, AIFS London, Spring '16 (via TripAdvisor) This trip includes the infamous thermal baths, day trip to Auschwitz, caving expedition beneath the hills of Buda, the iconic Berlin Wall, panoramic views of Prague's clock towers, and of course the most delicious and hearty meals.

This past weekend, I traveled to Budapest with WSA with a couple of friends from my university abroad, and I couldn't have asked for a better trip! After arriving at the hostel, we met Bogi, our tour guide for the weekend, who was instantly friendly and welcoming. Throughout the weekend, Bogi was an amazing guide! She showed us some great places for shopping and food, as well as the top sights around the city. You could tell she loved her job and never passed up an opportunity to share about her hometown and some of its history. She was so friendly and was sincerely interested in us as individuals and did everything she could do accommodate our priorities for the weekend (whether it was food, shopping, nightlife, sightseeing, etc.) I would highly recommend WSA's guided tours for any student studying abroad who wants to explore more than their university's city!Katrina Alford, Concordia University - Irvine ~ AIFS Richmond, Spring 2015
