Tour Visits and Options
We (parents) will also be traveling in Europe. Can we meet up with the tour to see some concerts?
Absolutely. You will receive a detailed itinerary at check-in at East Stroudsburg University. If you need more detailed information earlier, you can check with the main AMA office mid June
Can our European relatives / friends meet our child while on tour?
Yes; however, in order to insure your child’s safety, you must contact the main AMA office in advance of the tour to fill out a “Special Leave” permission form so that the directors know that the person coming to see your child is approved by you.
Can our child stay in Europe after the tour ends?
Yes, that is an option that happens frequently. We call this a “deviation” and you must contact the main AMA office by the end of February to work out the arrangements.
Which town did you like the most?
(From Mr. Linaberry) For me, every stop on the tour has unbelievable interest, with a huge amount of variety. The cathedrals are amazing. The size and opulence of the Paris Opera House is stunning. There’s nothing like the ‘smell’ of the air at 11,000 feet, at the top of a glacier in Austria. Also, the kinds of cultural events you’ll experience (wait till you see the Tirolean Folk Festival!) are indescribable. All things considered, I think my favorite Tour stops are Dinkelsbuhl, GER and Westendorf, AUS. Ah, but then again, Brugge, BEL, is an ancient marvel, and the views you’ll get from the cruise ships on the Rhine and Seine rivers will be something you’ll remember forever. You’ll love every place you visit. I’m excited for you just writing about it!
