Testimonials about this trip:
Maricourt SchoolAnother wonderful trip! After a troublesome start (a 2 hour delay which meant we missed a connecting flight) the airline moved us to a different flight and Cara was able to organise our coach and inform the hotel and restaurant of our late arrival. This was really reassuring and helped save the first day of our trip!
Exmouth Community CollegeBethan was an amazing travel consultant who worked tirelessly to ensure that our trip was a success. I highly recommend her and Diverse to anyone planning a residential trip.
