“Teacher friends, or anyone who wants to plan a trip for a group I cannot express how amazing Livy and UR Tours and Events is to work with to create a wonderful experience. I’ve worked with Livy for twelve years including five performance trips to Walt Disney World and two workshop/Broadway show trips to New York City. Simply THE BEST!”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better trip. I was nervous about traveling as a chaperone with 30+ high schoolers, as I have been on badly organized trips, but this was amazing! Enough information was handed out before hand and, as unexpected things came up (Covid-19 national crisis) . . . . Thanks for a great trip!”
Parent, Kentucky
“I wouldn’t recommend any other company to plan our trips. They are well organized and always have my student’s best interest in mind. The trips I have taken with them (Hawaii, California and Florida) have always run smoothly. I can’t recommend them enough.”
Band Director, New York
