Without a doubt, NETC is the best. The three teachers who traveled, have done a cumulative number of about 80 trips. This was, by far, the best organized, managed, and thought out we’ve ever done. From our initial contact, to the quality of hotels and restaurants, to our amazing Tour Director, it was truly excellent. We loved the LEAP! activities. The tapas cooking class in Spain was fantastic!� - Kari Kunze-Hoeg, MN
