My name is Stacey and I'm a student at Laurentian. For the past two years I've been a tour organizer and have worked with a company that does lots of highschool trips called Impact Educational Tours.
I'm currently trying to get another trip together for this coming May, 2007.
Here's all the info as follows.
Dates; May 9th-13th, 2007. (wednesday to sunday).
Deposit; Between $275-$320- your choice. The more you pay, the more off the final payment.
Total cost due date; March 9th.
-3 days, 4 nights at the Skyline Hotel in Manhattan, located in the Theatre District. (http://www.1skyline.com/directions.cfm)
-Motor Coach & Driver
-Tour Guide- Carla Pessoa
-Guided bus tour throughout the city
Carla is a certified teacher who just couldn't get enough of travelling! After teaching English in Taiwan for a year she went off to get her teaching degree in Beautiful Australia! However, when she was finished school she was excited to get back to tour guiding for awhile before settling down in the classroom. She does tours to Ottawa, Quebec and her favorite place to shop - New York City!!! She loves adventure on her tours and as much physical activity as possible. She believes the best way to see a city is by foot! In her free time, Carla enjoys snowboarding, rock climbing, running, dancing and scrapbooking.
Carla has guided our tours in the city for the past two years and she is totally awesome. New York is her favorite place and so she knows lots about it!
Basically, you can make your own trip out of this as well. You've got three days in the city to do whatever you like!
Also, there isn't an age limit. We had people as young as 15 and as old as 62 on trips past. Lots of parents also come on the trips. Come one, come all!
Also, check for any other info at my community, new_york_dazzle
Feel free to join and ask questions! There is no such thing as a stupid question!
I will also be holding "gatherings" at local Tim Hortons to help out people who have never been to NY before so that you can have help planning your adventure!
Feedback from the trips has always been good, and many, many people who came the first year also came again last year because it's so much fun.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Or comment please.
Thanks a lot! And hope to see you in NYC.
