What Our Clients Say About Us

Massey University

I first met Katie and Melissa from Eden Travel at an International Education Conference in 2018, where they impressed me with their enthusiasm and flexibly in discussions about creating a collaborative internship programme.

Since that initial meeting, Eden Travel, Massey University and Auckland University of Technology have created a joint internship programme, hosted by Eden Travel International. The creation of this programme, and the successful New Zealand Government scholarship funding of the programme, could not have happened without the outstanding work from the team at Eden Travel International.

At all times their enthusiasm and flexibly has shown through in their professional work, and the care for their programmes and the participants is clear to see.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Eden Travel International, and have already begun organizing multiple other programmes with the team.

Kent State

I have had the pleasure to work with Robin Eden of Eden Travel since 2010 when I became coordinator of the Kent State University Florence Fashion Program. Each Fall I work with Robin to organize our fashion study tours to Paris and London. Robin handles the flights, hotels, coaching, theatre tickets, museum passes and metro tickets. Over the years, the size of our group has grown from 34 to over 100 students traveling together, and the logistical challenges have increased as well.

I have found Robin to be extremely helpful in finding the solutions to meet our needs. He is always available to resolve any issues that may arise and all the bookings and arrangements are confirmed well in advance. Over the years, Robin has become a valued collaborator and I consider his contribution key in the growth of our program.

Auckland University of Technology

Auckland University of Technology (AUT) partnered with Eden Travel in June 2018 to offer unique academic, cultural, and practical experiences in Asia for New Zealand students. Along with Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand, we were successful in receiving a New Zealand Government grant to send students for a month-long programme in early 2019. The feedback from the students were extraordinary, and as a result we are submitting additional proposals for late 2019 / early 2020.

Eden Travel are an absolute pleasure to work with, and we will continue to work closely with them to develop wonderful experiences in Asia for our students.

Texas Tech University

I have been working with Eden Travel for a number of years. I have been extremely pleased with the arrangements that have been made for my groups. In 2017 we visited Hong Kong and Taipei. Every aspect met or exceeded our expectations. The hotels were great, the Eden Travel staff met us and escorted us when needed. The appointments were great and the restaurants they chose for group dinners were perfect. My students thoroughly enjoyed the trip, but the most important aspect was the educational experience. The students returned to campus following the experience having a greater understanding and appreciation of fashion merchandising and retail management. Because I know the quality of the experience offered by Eden Travel, I have used them this year and have already begun to plan next year’s trip.

We took a group of students to Europe this year and it was impeccably planned and executed. The hotels were nice and in great locations, the tours were outstanding, transportation was seamless and everything was communicated well and completely in order. I was thrilled with how well the tour went and the students had a fabulous experience. We will certainly use Eden Travel International again.
