Our trip to Switzerland was quite simply out of this world - facilitated in resort by the awesome reps, Lydia and Jenny, who were just there to facilitate and ensure we were all safe and well and able to organise our transport.

I have just returned from an amazing holiday in Switzerland with Venture abroad. Our rep Lydia was brilliant! She was very knowledgeable of the area and if she didn’t know, she would find out for us. Would definitely return.

Our Venture Abroad reps Lydia and Jenny were absolutely brilliant whilst we were in Adelboden. They went above and beyond with bookings, little tips, arranging delivery of pizza etc and were so friendly and supportive. You have 2 gems there, they were wonderful!

Lydia was the best rep we could have wished for. She was always on hand when we needed her, was always useful with information. She was friendly and approachable nothing was too much. We would like to thank her for all she done for our Scout Group whilst we was in Switzerland.

The best way to get your Scout Group abroad without aging yourself 20 years! I've organised five trips with them now. Thank you Venture Abroad. We've already booked two more trips with you and I really can't recommend your service highly enough.

Venture Abroad helped our Scouts and Explorers have the trip of a lifetime to Iceland. They gave us confidence every step of the way, from the early planning stage all the way through to the trip itself. The whole event was really smooth and we can't wait to book our next trip.

This is now the third time I have used Venture Abroad, we have now visited Kandersteg in 2016 and Iceland in 2023. Venture Abroad are great to deal with Katie is excellent at her job, nothing is too much trouble and her expert help and advice is much valued. I would never consider an international trip without Venture Abroad.

We’ve used VA on three occasions now to take Scouts camping abroad and cannot recommend the experience highly enough, great support from the team booking, preparing and actually at the Campsite. The experience of camping overseas is something every Scout should experience at least once 🙏🏼

I was blown away from the moment we arrived. we started by walking to something that looked like a scene from a Jurassic movie to travelling up the funicular train above the paraglides and spying a Marvel hideout station!

We had many tears from the scouts as they disembarked from the Coach because it had been the best experience of their life and they didn't want it to end!
