Testimonials about this trip:

This is now my 4th trip with Diverse Travel and I will continue to use you as your service is exemplary.  Thank you.
Clitheroe Royal Grammar
Ana has just been wonderful, nothing was too much for her and she efficiently dealt with all the changes we made across the year.
Ringwood School
Diverse School Travel have been a fantastic company to work with to arrange an international trip.  The travel consultant (Leanne) was really helpful, organised, friendly and easy to talk to and made the organisation of the trip really easy.  I would recommend Diverse School Travel to others and would definitely use them again!
Hull University Physics Society
Diverse will always be my first choice when looking at future trips because I just don't think anyone can match up to your service.
Arden Academy
The quick and detailed responses we have had from you have been far better than from any other company.
Worthing College
I was highly impressed by Diverse. I certainly will be using them again in the future. The information pack was very detailed which made getting around very easy. There is a lot to pack into 3 days. Students got a lot out of this visit.
