It was a great experience and has given me the travel bug! I feel I was really able to experience the culture and had the opportunity to meet lots of people. I loved the variety of activities which seemed to include a bit of everything, from performing concerts, shopping, sight seeing, eating different foods and visiting different people. It was fun and I learnt a lot about the people and culture of China!

Student China Music Tour

The experience was great as this tour allowed me to witness things that can not be taught in any history class. It gave me first hand experience into how things occurred and it allowed me to take the knowledge that I acquired and bring that into my class.

Student Europe History Tour

It was the most amazing experience and I just wish it never ended.

Student USA Business & Design Technology Tour

Your views on how your own hometown will change after a trip like this. You’ll grow to appreciate the sunrises and sunsets more, you become more social when you come back, you gather more experience with different cultures and people from around the world.

Student Newlands College Europe & UK Humanities Tour

This tour was a life changing experience, i gained a different perspective on travelling and the whole trip ran smoothly. The different opportunities we were given was amazing resulting in this trip being a once in a lifetime experience.

Student Queen Margaret College USA History & Media Studies Tour

The tour was very engaging and allowed me to experience an overseas culture. I feel the tour has educated me not only in football but the lifestyles of other countries. This is an experience that I would highly recommend for future students.

Student Padua College UK & Spain Football Tour

My trip to China was definitely something I will never forget as it allowed me to experience a whole new and exciting culture that I hadn’t really seen before. I also got the chance to see the perspective of someone’s everyday life in a different country, which really made me thankful for a lot of things which we have at home. I was also able to make a whole new group of friends in my tour group who I would have never spoken to if I wasn’t given the opportunity to.

Student Rangitoto College China Social Sciences Tour

I would recommend Student Horizons to any school and can say that we received an excellent level of service and support.

Teacher Westlake Boys' High School UK & Spain Football Tour

Our students really benefited from this amazing pre-season tour in Europe. An amazing experience for the girls to see Hockey at its best. Fantastic games and coaching clinics as well as a nice mix of sightseeing and shopping. I would highly recommend this tour and would certainly book again… Certainly could not have organised this ourselves. Great to have local contacts on the ground in Europe. Standard of games was spot on and clubs visited were brilliant and they were incredibly happy for us to be there playing them and incredibly hospitable.

Teacher Diocesan School for Girls Europe Hockey Tour

Jared was fantastic in every aspect! He was efficient and effective where necessary and got along well with staff and boys alike, a perfect tour companion. All guides were very well prepared, knowledgeable and complimented the various styles of the tours well. A fantastic experience for students & staff made relatively hassle-free by all of the hard work from Jared and the Student Horizons team.

First XI Coach Marist College Ashgrove UAE & UK Cricket Tour

Student Horizons were responsible for Rathkeale College’s recent European Football tour and are to be highly commended for providing the boys and staff with an excellent experience on all fronts. The tour proceeded with scarcely a hitch and this owes much to the organisation and attention to detail provided by Student Horizons and their agents.

Development Manager Rathkeale College European Football Tour

Student Horizons is a company that I have been advocating for since my introduction to them last October. Within one week of making my initial enquiry, the company director, Mr Jamie Wansey travelled from New Zealand to Brisbane to meet with me directly and discuss the option of touring with Student Horizons. His initial passion, commitment and interest in my suggested aims and objectives of such tours from St Mary’s College made it an easy decision…The Student Horizons team was remarkable in every way, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to any school or organisation.

Teacher St Mary's College Ipswich New Zealand Choral & Netball Tour

At the end of the tour, I mentioned to Mik Scott that it felt like I was just one of the kids on the tour. And he said he felt the same. Part of this was because we had a great group of kids but the main reason is that Student Horizons was meticulous in the organisation and preparation and Jared worked tirelessly to ensure the plan was enacted. Student Horizons is a first class operation.

Teacher St Joseph's Nudgee College USA & Canada Basketball Tour

The Nudgee College rugby program had the pleasure of using the services of Student Horizons on our recent Fiji Rugby & Service Tour. Taking 40 young men away on an overseas trip can be quite daunting, particularly since we hadn’t toured in recent years, but with Student Horizons looking after us throughout the entire process, we knew we were in good hands. As the tour leader, I was even taken over to Fiji on an inspection tour with Student Horizons, to risk assess the trip, and ensure I was happy with all the elements of the itinerary. The rugby was very competitive and culturally our boys were amazed. Thank you to Student Horizons on what was a trip of a lifetime, our boys will never forget this. We can’t wait to book our 2018 tour with you!

Director of Rugby St Joseph’s Nudgee College Fiji Rugby Tour

On behalf of the Padua Rugby Tour I would like to thank you for the once in a lifetime experience for the boys. From the Temple Bar to Rugby Club Versailles it was a full itinerary of great rugby, unbelievable culture and history and lots of laughs. We would personally like to congratulate Blair on his organisation and more importantly his friendship.

Head of Sport Padua College UK/Europe Rugby Tour

Student Horizons made our trip manageable and achievable and saved the College a great deal of organisation. The cost also allowed many students to be able to afford this trip and it was value for money.

Secondary Principal MacKillop Catholic College New Zealand Multi-Sports Tour

Student Horizons organised a good all round experience for our Ski Tour. A mix of cultural and extreme sport experience. We were very lucky with the snow and weather. Accommodation mix was comfortable and clean. Plenty of food for hungry skiers. Hire and collection of gear went without a hitch. Would definitely recommend the same tour to any school.

Assistant Director of Activities St Joseph's Nudgee College New Zealand Ski Tour

I can highly recommend Student Horizons to take any group on a tour. We travelled to Japan in April 2018 with a group of 25 rugby players and 3 staff. Student horizons allowed us to focus on training, playing and recovering for the duration of the tour and took care of all the daily requirements to prepare a high performance team thanks to their ability to arrange all travel logistics, meals and extra curricular activities. In addition to the professional service provided by Student Horizons both before and after the trip, Student Horizons were constantly available 24/7 to answer all questions and requests and assist in any potential minor emergency that we needed addressing throughout the entire trip. We will definitely be using them again and would have no hesitation in recommending them to deliver your next sports tour.

Director of Sport Christ Church Grammar School Japan Sports Tour April 2018

Student Horizons were amazing providers for our recent trip to Samoa. They helped organise a once in a life time opportunity and the students, parents and staff are all buzzing about the amazing time they had. Thank you for all the hard work you did to make this trip the success it was!

Teacher St John's College Samoa Music Tour

It was an amazing experience and made so easy by Student Horizons. We didn’t have to worry about minor details but could ensure the students were having a great time on their tour. I haven’t stopped recommending Student Horizons since the last tour we did, two years ago, and I will continue to recommend them to anyone wanting to take students away.

HOD Music Feilding High School Melbourne Music Tour

Overall the tour was a great success with our performances and workshops resulting in our students eyes being opened to the vast array of education in China. We were welcomed by schools and communities from all walks of life and the students thoroughly enjoyed their interactions with the local children. From a music directors view there were often many obstacles dealing with the Chinese bureaucracy that we overcame with our Student Horizons rep Christian. We couldn’t have done it without him.

Music Director Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra China Music Tour

We think the world of the service you have provided to the school.

I just wanted to say how amazing the planning process has been and how grateful we are that we have this trip planned and running through Student Horizons. The whole team, but especially Jane Teitge has been amazing! The trip is fabulous.

This was an outstanding tour. Student Horizons were great to deal with from the outset, providing a high standard of care from our initial meeting through to the actual tour. The planning included a great balance between planned activities and relaxation time, and our whole tour experience was extremely positive. We will be booking with Student Horizons again for our next international tour! Thanks very much.

Teacher Waikato Diocesan School for Girls USA Culinary & Design Tour

There were numerous highlights! – the programme was well designed, and a nice balance of activities. The workshops in particular were just fantastic. The students and staff bonded instantly with Suzy, and this really helped to make the tour a great success. Suzy was calm, organised, and easy to work with. We all enjoyed her in her role as tour guide. A fabulous experience overall, a well balanced programme, and a very high level of service both during the organisational phase and the execution of the trip.

Director of Performing Arts St Peter’s School, Cambridge New York Performing Arts Tour

Overall, our tour was fantastic. Kaitlin Reif did a great job guiding us through our very busy itinerary and was very accommodating when we made changes to meet our needs. She worked hard to keep all the girls safe and to make sure we made it to our many bookings on time.

Music Teacher Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School USA Arts Tour

I would happily recommend Student Horizons to any school and will be recommending to our principal and other Heads of Department that we use you for future tours. I also wanted to pass along how amazing Jane has been to work with. She communicated with us regularly, including whilst we were overseas, and helped us out with all sorts of drama.

Head of Creative Arts Kirwan State High School USA Arts Tour

Student Horizons helped us to achieve the goal we set out with. We wanted to enrich the learning experience of our students by visiting historical sites that are important to our history. Every step of the way, Student Horizons was working with us to make that possible. Nothing was ever ‘too hard’ or dismissed and ultimately, that made the tour experience so life-changing for our students. The support we received from Student Horizons really helped our dreams as teachers come true, and resulted in a life-changing experience for our students.

Teacher Genesis Christian College European Humanities Tour

Jake Millar and Google visit were excellent additions that were only made possible through the connections made by Student Horizons. Great experience for both students and staff. I think that the tour certainly achieved the goal of opening students eyes to the potential beyond our shores as well as providing a memorable [tour]!

Head of Department Cavendish Road State High School USA Opportunity Tour

We were hugely impressed with the quality of the service provided by Student Horizons. Both the students and staff had an amazing time experiencing a culture different to their own. Everything was well organised, which meant we as staff were able to focus on managing only the students, not the logistics of the trip.

Teacher Rongotai College Vietnam & Cambodia Social Sciences Tour

Student Horizons helped make it possible for us as tour leaders to provide our students with an experience that challenged them and exposed them to some of the most significant architecture, galleries, museums across Europe. As leaders we were able to travel with the confidence that having an organisation like Student Horizons behind you gives. An excellent tour for both students and staff.

Teacher Christchurch Boys’ High School Europe Art Tour

Our students learned so much about the history of Hollywood and the film industry in general; the opportunity to see iconic film locations, tour film studios, and experience the wonders of the cultural side of life in LA added a special dimension to our experience.  We will definitely use Student Horizons again for our overseas EOTC trips in the future.

Head of Faculty of English Mount Albert Grammar School USA Media Studies

I found the service offered by Student Horizons to be very thorough, professional and responsive. Emails were responded to promptly and there was a real sense that our rep Jeannine and her colleagues were doing their best to meet our needs and make the tour everything it needed to be for the students. The trip itself was magnificent.

Teacher Newlands College Europe & UK Humanities Tour

Our trip was incredible. The itinerary was so well put together- we were able to fit in so many things without it feeling overloaded. Student Horizons set us up with so much good information prior to the trip. The educational value of being on film sets, seeing behind the scenes of how TV shows are filmed, reading scripts from some of their favourite films and TV is beyond anything that can be done in the classroom. Some of the students have decided to work in the industry from what they experienced in this trip.

Teacher Wellington Girls' College USA Media Studies Tour

Communication is clear, nothing is ever an issue to change and or adapt… Well organised and your presentations to parents are always spot on – a nice mix between formalised but enough to make parents and student comfortable to want to attend.
