In addition – most of our trips are to places that have a tourist attraction nearby and often people want to extend their stay to fully take advantage of the cultural aspects of the locations. For example: Toronto is less that 1 1/2 hours from Niagara Falls.
Here are some testimonials from some of our students
Special note: Diego is a past graduate of a Starfield trip. He is now the CEO of Triploop which has recently been accepted into Plug and Play Travel & Hospitality Incubator. He attributes some of his success to his Starfield experience which taught him that most people are capable of amazing things. While we would love to claim credit for his success…it would not be true. All we did was expose him to people who could assist in his journey.
