Going to NY tomorrow morning with 17 students!!!! Went 2 years ago and we all had a great time so we're hoping it goes well again.I HAD to keep costs down for it to go ahead. Bascially any excursions/add ons are generally a rip off by travel companies - either here or those booked through their associates in New York. SO easy to get the tavel company to organise the minimum and organise the other stuff yourself. Going with Study Experiences. Flights with BA,with only US transfers (meeting students at Heathrow), staying in a youth hostel in midtown Manhattan costs £393 per person. Asked the students to pay £293.It includes insurance (the college's own insurance was extended to cover the USA). On top of that the students will be paying for a behind the scenes tour of Macy's (£8), Going up he Empire State (£8), Statute of Liberty (£5) Federal Reserve bank lecture (free), Federal Reserve Bank tour (Free), Ground Zero Free), Tenament museum (£7. Can't wait!!!
