Ambassador girls wants some ideas: Hi! I am posting because I our troop of seniors and ambassadors have saved money for a trip next year. our leader suggested we ask others about their trips especially want to know what you spent. Some of the girls are interested in going someplace with a beach like an island. Others more interested in someplace like Paris or London. If there are leaders or girls here who have done something like this can you give us some advice?
We had a lot of ideas from our Facebook leaders:
Sandra’s troop: My Seniors went to London, Paris & Switzerland in summer 2013 and paid $3200/person. We went through EF Tours. This summer I am taking another senior troop to London, Switzerland, Venice & Rome for $3500/each. This year we planned the trip with a travel agent and was able to customize to our wants. Both trips were 11 days. April 2017 I am taking an Ambassador troop to Savannah & Charleston for 5 days and have budgeted $500 each. Good luck.
Barbara’s experience: Went to Savannah last summer with EF tours what a disaster. When our flight got cancelled leaving they abandoned us at airport and we had to find our own hotel. And arrange our own transportation at our own cost. After that we canceled trip to London, Paris and Switzerland with them and we are going on our own. Already have reservations at Pax house London and Chalet in Switzerland.
Kara wrote in: Our Cadettes are planning a 7 night Caribbean cruise in a few years. We are budgeting $1500 per person which would include flights and some excursions.
Lisa’s idea: Our seniors & ambassadors did an EF tours trip in summer of 2015 to Greece – Athens and the Islands, which included a 4 day cruise. Great excursions and beach time. Highly recommend.
Jennifer: Our troop is going to Belize thru EF Tours next year. One girl in my troop did the London to Lucerne trip last summer and my daughter and two others in my troop are doing the Conservation in Costa Rica trip this summer. All thru EF Tours.
Laura’s comment: For our Ambassador Trip we went last summer with EF tours to England France Switzerland and Italy. It was for 15 days.
