Studying abroad may be one of the most beneficial experiences for a college student. Having the opportunity to go on this trip was amazing. Tom was very informative and always shared great knowledge about Cuba and its history. We visited a few places in Cuba and had the chance to see many dance performances and art galleries. Having the opportunity to study in a foreign nation and take in the allure and culture of a new land was rewarding. Abroadia is great, I recommend everyone to work with this company.
