Guangzhou GB
We had a good experience in the trip as well as in the organization process. It will be better if we do it again next year because then we would be more prepared as to what is actually available for us and other options we could consider. Probably the most difficult part was having too much time for ourselves. We had two days out of the four in which us teachers had to be guides. It's doable, but challenging when we are not familiar with the environment. The guide the we also had was very kind, helpful, and informative. Unfortunately, even though our Chinese students could speak English, they were not proficient enough to completely understand what was being said due to the Italian accent. Most were simply not used to it.

Pembrokeshire GB
Although the hotel was ideally located is was very, very basic, WIFI was only available in a very cramped small area in reception, no phone signals and very dated no TV etc.

Loads to do in Florence, great City, would consider a return but a higher class hotel.

The tour guide was excellent and really helped us getting orientated.
