Panorama Travel Agency:

We had a good experience working with Panorama Travel Agency to make travel arrangements for the Africa Advance in 2011 and the Asia Advance in 2012 and the London Advance in 2013. Panorama has 23 years of experience in international travel and offers competitive rates. Additionally, their system monitors reservations for schedule changes, delays or canceled flights. In these instances, they will immediately work to fix or change your reservations on your behalf, as they did when Hurricane Irene cancelled international flights leaving from the United States' East Coast in 2011.

Students are NOT required to use this agency as some students already travel extensively and may have alternative ways of arranging international travel. Nevertheless, if you would like to work with Panorama, contact Norimar Campos to make arrangements: norimar@explorepanoramas.com or (1-800-523-0093).
