Excellent, very fast-paced tour for a representative overview of the very varied Ecuadorian Andres December 2018

This tour is for those who can deal with a fast pace, early morning starts and staying in a different place each night (except for the 2 nights in Cuenca at the end). A very well thought out - and packed! - itinerary that went off without a hitch, thanks to our very competent, knowledgeable and friendly guide, Franklin, who was also indispensable in organizing side trips/excursions and negotiating a reasonable price for them. Highlights for us were the included morning trip to just below base camp in the Cotopaxi National Park, and the optional excursion to Cajas National Park. The two travel segments by public bus (Quito-Otavalo 2.5 hours; Alausi-Cuenca 4 hours), while interesting, would have been much more enjoyable and comfortable by private transportation. Accommodation was always clean, functional and friendly, but variable in quality from one stop to the next - the highlight being the quaint and comfortable Hacienda El Porvenir at over 3600 metres in a pastoral landscape near the treeline. The high altitude of parts of this tour (Cotopaxi stop at over 4600m and optional Cajas hike 4200m, and even the start-end point of Quito (2800m) is something that prospective travellers should be aware of and plan for (altitude sickness pills, lots of water, good sunscreen)so as to fully enjoy every moment of this memorable trip. As for food, only breakfasts were included, but in most places there were very good food choices in the restaurants and interesting local dishes to try. Read more

They took very good care of me as I was a woman traveling alone, never once did I worry about a thing. It was extraordinary. I am using them again to go to Japan.

During my summer break of 2018, I followed the youth program in Korea, Seoul. I certainly had the best time of my life those two weeks. The program was organized perfectly, my homestay family was amazing and the activities we had were super interesting and fun. But most of all, I made new friends, with the same ambitions, from all over the world and we had such a great time together! The GoGoHanguk staff was amazing aswell! They offered help and guidance, whenever we needed! I would totally recommend this to everyone who is interested in Korean culture. I definitely had the time of my life! Read more

With Studytrip, I was able to take part in the 3 week summer course in South Korea. Hands down the best decision I have ever made and I'm not a decisive person! The whole trip was so organised, even to every detail of the location of the meeting place for an activity, to the directions of how to get to the meeting place (thank you Go! Go! Hanguk staff: Eddy, Nathan and Okju).
Studying Korean in the mornings of weekdays at Lexis Korea helped tie everything together, learn Korean in the morning, explore and use it in the afternoon! The whole experience has definitely inspired me to want to learn more Korean, so I'm sure it won't be too long until I go back.
