«Frank and the Forocio team were wonderful in working to make our Study Abroad program a success with the large group of students we traveled with. Every detail was well organized and allowed us to enjoy the trips without worry. The tour guides they chose for us were professional and knowledgable. Frank checked in on us after every trip to ensure things had gone smoothly. We can’t imagine having traveled without them! We highly recommend Frank and Forocio!»

«We have worked with Stefan Schmuckle and Forocio since 2012, taking groups of American university students to Europe during the month of January. Our groups have ranged in size from 23-32, and we have visited five cities per trip, ranging from Barcelona to St. Petersburg, Russia. We have always sought the elusive combination of acceptable price point and comfortable accommodations – and Stefan has always delivered. Not once have we had a guide or transport fail to show up on time or arrived at a hotel that was not only expecting us but ready for early check-in. Stefan even handled all the flights between the European cities. We could not be more pleased with Forocio and look forward to working with them in the future.»

«For the last 6 years Forocio has been essential to our study-abroad program in Madrid. Their rare combination of expertise, dependability, and affordability makes our program run smoothly and makes my life much easier. Our extended field trip to Barcelona is the highlight of our summer and the meals Forocio arranged for us were exquisite. My students bragged to their friends from other programs about the hip restaurants we went to in Spain.»

«Back from Sevilla, I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you and Forocio for organizing the trip for us. Everything went well… We all had a great time: the hotel accommodations were good, and the hotel food was good too. I want to especially commend our guide Pablo Carbajosa, who is an excellent guide, and a very lovely person. We truly enjoyed his sense of humor, his knowledge, his kindness, as well as his impressive linguistic abilities. I hope we can have another trip with Forocio, if not this year, then next year. I am going to give your address and information to the next Field Directors, who may contact you even before they get here next year. Best wishes, and once again, thank you very much!»

«From transportation and hotels to guided visits, Forocio offers quality excursions at competitive prices. Frank and his team are exceptional, and Forocio’s customer service and willingness to adapt to our program requirements has resulted in first-rate travels throughout Spain and wonderful memories for our students. Indeed, even with a program as large as ours (80-100 students), Forocio has provided excellent accommodations, comfortable and spacious motor coaches, exceptional guides in both Spanish and English, and does it all while maintaining quality and an economical price. And, to top it off, Forocio makes sure that everything is taken care of for you by making all arrangements and staying in contact at all times. This is an honest and trustworthy company that is genuinely interested in their client. Higly recommended. »

«Forocio coordinated two weekend excursions for my study-abroad group. Both trips were impressively well-planned and reasonably priced. We had access to knowledgeable guides, a fantastic (also knowledgeable) bus driver, and a schedule that was perfectly balanced between sight-seeing and free time. I was also particularly impressed by the professionalism and reliability of Frank, the director. When a student’s minor emergency resulted in a two-hour delay to one of the trips, Frank personally assisted in shifting our full schedule of activities to accomodate the delay (no easy feat!). I whole-heartedly recommend Forocio to other educational travel coordinators, and I look forward to using their services again.»
