ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Andy Steves was born into a traveling family and cut his teeth from day one, heading to Europe each year while his father updated his guidebooks, made TV shows and researched new tours. His father’s passion for travel, in-depth cultural experiences and efficient, affordable travel rubbed off on Andy during these family trips each year once he graduated from the stroller.
A semester abroad during his undergrad at the University of Notre Dame opened his eyes to the fascinating world of independent, budget travel and this is when the need for the next generation of travel tips and tricks became painfully clear to him.
Upon winning ND’s annual business plan competition with an idea for a student tour company, Andy launched Weekend Student Adventures in 2010 and now runs award-winning trips, itineraries and travel workshops all across Europe.

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’s 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.Lauren Wallender, Elon University ~ Fall 2014
