What other teachers said about this trip

During this past spring break, I worked with A La Carte Travel to plan a trip to Alsace and Paris. I had been to Paris before and I wanted to go somewhere else in France that my students would enjoy. It was Rene’s recommendation that we try Alsace, and I’m so glad we did. It was beyond beautiful! I loved learning about all of the history, and surprisingly, my students did too! I’m so glad I decided to work with  A La Carte Travel. Just thinking about coordinating this trip without their help gives me a headache! They thought of every detail, from the best places to eat to the best places to shop. I’m already in talks with them to plan a trip to the south of France for next summer. Having this trip to look forward to is going to get me (and my students) through this school year!
