What Our Students are Saying
"Cusco was an amazing place to study abroad. There were so many opportunities to go hiking, exploring and learn more about the culture without even leaving Cusco. The excursions to the Amazon, Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu were amazing, but my favorite parts by far were my host family and the new friends I made abroad."
