The service learning trip to Peru, originally scheduled for this year’s spring break, has been rescheduled for spring break of 2016. The main reason for pushing the trip back a year is to make it more affordable by providing additional time to make LOWER monthly payments. The total cost for the 10 day trip is $3770 which includes visits to the Sacred Valley of the Inca, Machu Picchu, and Cuzco. Travelers also will participate in a service learning project in the Lake Titicaca community (for which they will earn school service learning credit!) In addition to the lower monthly payments, EF Tours is offering a $200 discount for travelers who enroll by Oct. 31. Space is limited so don’t wait too long to get in on this once in a lifetime experience. Sign up now at the EF website: http://www.eftours.com/tour-website/1614313JX Any questions?
