• About Us

    We are a small boutique student travel company specializing in overnight tours of college campuses for high school students. We know this market better than anyone and can offer a more specialized experience than the larger companies that try to offer every imaginable form of student travel all over the world.

Paul is currently the lead college counselor and global exchange coordinator at a selective magnet high school regarded as one of the best in the USA, located right outside of New York City . Paul has spent the past 15 years in college admissions and as a college counselor, but also planning and directing a variety of student travel programs for high school students throughout the USA, Canada, Europe, and Asia. He has spent over 370 nights traveling with teenagers. Paul was featured in the book Life's Little College Admissions Insights: Top Tips From the Country's Most Acclaimed Guidance Counselors, and has been quoted in The New York Times, TeenLife.com, Examiner.com, The Bergen Record, and FIOS1 TV.

    Paul will personally plan and arrange each tour and create the perfect travel experience for your students. You, as well as your students and parents, will have a direct line to him for any questions before and during the tour. Paul will also personally lead most CXT tours, unless he is already booked in which case another CXT representative with substantial student travel experience will lead the tour.
