  • I think it is amazing you could still pull our trip off at all with all the obstacles we faced. I appreciate your tireless work on making our trip awesome and as close to the original as it could be. We will forever sing your praises and be grateful. I absolutely loved the incredible communication you had with our group, especially in light of the circumstances. The service and caring was first class.

  • The trip was awesome from start to finish. My highlight was recording at the RCA Studio B. The look on my students faces made the trip worthwhile during the recording session. It is great that they offer that for performing ensembles. Sarah was fantastic to plan the trip with and Irina was the BEST guide I have ever had on a band trip! Top notch! This was a great non-stress experience for everyone involved.

    Band Director, East River High School
  • I had the time of my life in New York and enjoyed every minute of it.

    Student, Coronado High School
  • We got empowering notes for the day or for life in general (each morning). It was the push that you needed for the day - I still have mine! They were also personalized and not all of them were the same. It was really cool! Every single person got one each morning.

    Student, Dacula High School
  • The trip was wonderful. This was my first cruise and I had a wonderful experience! The service, shows, and travel was amazing.

    Student, Marion University
  • We didn’t have to worry about finding the places we were supposed to be, information was always given to us and we would have our tour director there to show us where to go.

    Student, Coronado High School
  • (The experience) was phenomenal, a real great opportunity for our students to go somewhere nearby, a couple hours away. All of our needs were met and our itinerary kept us busy. It catered to everyone’s needs when it comes to food, lodging, entertainment – we were well taken care of.

    Choir Director, Dacula High School
  • It was fantastic! What an incredible company you work with - the staff was outstanding. Kids had a blast. Easily one of the best trips I've done in more than 15 years. Thank you so much for hooking me up with Southwestern. Once I get back to school I'll figure out my next trip with them.

    Band Director, East Hall High School
  • It was amazing! Our tour director as very helpful and very friendly. I never felt unsure of anything and was able to get every question that I thought of answered. I had a great time, and I had very little to worry about. This trip experience was phenomenal!

    Student, Marion University
  • Our tour guide was wonderful. I have been taking trips with my bands for 18 years and this is the first trip I have taken where we had an actual tour guide from the company stay with us for the duration of our trip. Usually other companies just give us an itinerary and that's it. We really appreciate the personal touch of the company and would recommend Southwestern Educational Travel to any group looking to use a tour company to travel with.

    Choir Director, Greenville Middle School
  • It was very fun and enjoyable! Our tour director was really sweet and knew what she was doing all of the time. Everyone was very prepared and patient with one another!

    Student, Coronado High School
  • Our recent trip to Nashville was by far one of the best experiences we have had in more than 15 years! All of the students had such an amazing time!

    Director, East Hall High School
  • I believe this was a once in a lifetime experience because I wouldn't have been able to enjoy all of the things I did without my school and your company.
