Was a chaperone on a trip to nyc with the band. The band director advised us of the trip well in advance thus giving us plenty of time to save and pay. My husband, daughter and I enjoyed this trip to its fullest. We went to broadway shows, ate at nice places and even went to the "top of the rock!" (Top of Rockefeller building). It was as if they knew we were in town and treated us like royalty. Recommend these guys for teachers and parents! its a great way to spend time with your kids while they learn. Oh, btw, trip was under 1,500!
