“I took my first group of students to NYC in June of 2006.  Steven Kavee and Small Journeys made this an amazing trip.  I’ve taken numerous other groups to NYC since then and ALWAYS use Small Journeys!  They jam pack SO MUCH in to a few days, affordable prices and they truly are the best out there.  I will never use anyone else.”

“This was a complicated tour that was a little intimidating for me to plan because I had not really been to New York before! It’s really a result of the planning and preparations that everything fell into place so nicely. We fell in love with the city of New York and made memories that will not only last but inspire for a lifetime.”
