WHAT OUR PARTNERS ARE SAYING
- OCCC Costa Rica Study Abroad 2013
Christian is extremely pleasant to work with and has always been more than willing to customize the itinerary to suit our needs. He understands that our students typically don't have a lot of means to travel, and he works hard to find budget options for lodging and transportation so that the overall trip cost is kept as low as possible. I recommend student travel with Study Abroad Association.
- Professor of English University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma
Choosing to travel with the Study Abroad Association has been a great decision. Since working with this organization, enrollment in our Study Abroad program has increased substantially. Students enjoy the “feet on the ground” approach, which improves cultural immersion and understanding. Prompt communication, steadfast preparedness, and unlimited enthusiasm make me confident in this company.
- SSC Central Europe Study Abroad 2013
The trip was wildly successful. It exceeded my expectations, and, based on my students' journals, it far exceeded their expectations. The private rooms were better than four-star rooms in London and Paris. The students loved hostel life, meeting and hanging out with other college students from all over the world.
- Seminole State College - Chair of Global Study
Outstanding tours at the lowest prices in the industry. Our institution has worked with the Study Abroad Association on five study tours to locations as diverse as China, Central Europe, and Costa Rica. Most recently we traveled to Amsterdam. SAA worked with us to build an itinerary that was both educational and a ton of fun. The local guides far exceeded our expectations.

- Northern Oklahoma College - Biology Teacher
Christian and his team are great to work with and really take care of my students and I on our study abroad trips each year. They are both flexible and knowledgeable when it comes to the best use of our money and time. I highly recommend the SAA for all your group travel needs.
- Pensacola State College - Director of Study Abroad
Christian and his excellent guides arranged an amazing and affordable adventure for our students. They treated us like family and were quick to accommodate any special needs and tried to make arrangements in a way that everyone got the best experiences out of our trip. Christian, Tito, and Ludrick's positive attitude and quick wit kept everyone upbeat and having fun. The guides' expertise was unmatched. I have studied abroad before and have never had such knowledgeable, friendly, and fun guides. I will definitely be using SAA for all our future trips. Thanks again for providing such an amazing experience for our students!
- Cory Rubel - Rose State College - Biology Professo
This was my first trip as a professor taking students abroad. Christian and his team were magnificent. Everything was taken care of, accommodations were excellent, the guides were friendly. My students had an opportunity to earn college credit while abroad and Christian personalized our trip to meet those needs. I fully recommend the Study Abroad Association, and I can't wait to attend the next year.
- Northeastern Wisconsin Technical College, Health Sciences Professor
Our college's trip to Costa Rica was perfect! Tito and Ludrick were amazing. Great guys, super open to anything we wanted to do and very patient! They are incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of their nation, especially environmentally. We could not have asked for a better experience for our students (and ourselves!). We are already looking to book our college again with Christian, Tito, and Ludrick!
