      My son had an amazing trip. They ate gourmet food, stayed in clean and safe accommodations, traveled in comfort throughout Taiwan, and participated in a wide variety of activities. We highly recommend this company.

      I recently had the opportunity to have my 10-year-old daughter participate in a tour organized by Real Asia. The tour took her and her 4th-grade classmates to various cultural landmarks in San Francisco, including Angel Island, Chinatown, Japantown, and Indian Civic Center. I must say that the experience was truly enriching for my daughter and her classmates. Real Asia did an exceptional job in organizing and executing the tour. The itinerary was well-planned, allowing the students to explore and learn about different cultures in a fun and educational way. The visit to Angel Island provided a unique opportunity for the students to learn about the history of immigration in the United States. They were able to see firsthand the immigration station and hear stories of immigrants who passed through Angel Island. It was a thought-provoking experience that sparked conversations about diversity and empathy among the students. Chinatown, Japantown, and Indian Civic Center visits were equally captivating. The students had the chance to immerse themselves in the vibrant cultures, taste authentic cuisines, and engage with the local community. Real Asia's knowledgeable tour guides provided insightful information and answered the students' questions, further enhancing their understanding of these diverse cultures. Throughout the tour, Real Asia ensured the safety and well-being of the students. The tour guides were attentive, patient, and accommodating, making the experience enjoyable for both the students and the teachers. I highly recommend Real Asia for educational tours. Their commitment to providing immersive and educational experiences is evident in every aspect of their tours. My daughter and her classmates gained a deeper appreciation for different cultures and developed a curiosity to explore more. Thank you, Real Asia, for providing such a memorable experience for our children.

      We had a blast! This trip was definitely an awesome and super unique experience and will always be memorable! The price is super super super decent for all the places we went to! I was scared at first because I had never been on the other side of the planet before, but this trip brought so much happiness and fun! I am so glad I took this opportunity, and I can't think of anything that would improve this experience! Being outside most of the time and exploring many different places in one day was very unusual for me, but it was great for my mental and physical health. Also, trying many different foods and meeting different people was really cool! This experience really showed us a clear view of the culture and made us feel part of it. When my school got back to our home country, we started crying because of how much we missed the trip. It was absolutely worth it and has marked a bunch of happy moments in my mind!
