After any initial questions, and once you’ve purchased this option, you’ll arrange a time with your Destination Expert to discuss your project in detail (by phone or video call). They will then get back to you with the information you agreed. From that point you can turn to your Destination Expert with any further questions to help you plan everything perfectly.

Your Destination Expert knows their city inside out. They can help you find the right area to live in, help with your flat search (putting you in contact with professionals if web search is not the best option for you), help with transport options, medical contacts and can basically help with any questions using their local network.

When it comes to looking for accommodation, we are here to give you all the tips to do just that! We’ll show you the best websites to search and how we as locals look for a room or a flat so you don’t fall into any traps. We will make suggestions and help you with choosing the right one, put you in contact with potential landlords we  know of in our network. Or if you prefer, we can put you in contact with professionals who can organize everything for you before you arrive.

Most importantly, the Destination Expert remains available once the student has arrived. We are only a phone call away from the student or their parents for any extra questions or in case of emergency.

Included in the City Student option: “A Welcome Visit”: half a day spent exploring the city with our Destination Expert. The itinerary is established according to your preferences.

If you are considering a destination which is not yet listed on our website, please get in touch with us as we have contacts in many countries, and new destinations are being added regularly.

With your family, with or without children, between adults, with friends, solo … there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Sophie, your Destination Expert

After visiting Athens with my family at a young age, all I had in mind was going back to Greece to find the sweet aroma of the orange blossoms that had captivated me. About 4 years ago, my dream came true! Not only did I make it back to Athens, but also met my very own Greek God… and have never been able to leave the city since then!

Athens is a city with a thousand facets where life is good, rocked by its ancient history and its mild Mediterranean sun throughout the year. Explore the historic center and get lost in the pretty alleys of Plaka, where you will find a myriad of taverns where you can enjoy a delicious moussaka accompanied by a refreshing ouzo. In the evening, grab a drink in one of the trendy rooftops of Monastiraki, and enjoy the beautiful view of the Acropolis…
Athens is also the starting point to reach many Greek islands, some of which can be reached in just an hour by boat. Did you say getaway? Yes!

Whether in Athens for a weekend or an extended vacation, I will be happy to share with you my good spots around the city and its surroundings. I can also help you organise your vacation in Greece and more particularly in Corfu, the largest of the Ionian islands with a rich multicultural background and breathtaking landscapes.

Sophie speaks French, English and a few words of greek !

Tima, your Destination Expert

I have always been fascinated by Egypt, that of the Nile and pharaohs. Having visited Cairo many times in my life, when my husband announced to me our next expatriation destination, I jumped to the ceiling. And how could I have reacted differently, Cairo is the mother of the world “Oum el-Dounia,” said Shéhérazade in telling his Arabian Nights.
Between the mythical imprint left by the pharaohs, the souks, the medieval city, the colonial avenues, and so many masterpieces erected by the successive Arab, Kurdish, Mamluk, Ottoman and European governments. Cairo is a joyful and amazing capital where times mix and charm operates.
I am Franco-Moroccan living in Cairo with my husband and two children, we find a lot of fun discovering this country and enjoying the magic of this city.
I will be more than happy to help you listen, smell, taste and appreciate the many facets of Cairo and Egypt.

Tima speaks French English and Arabic.

Olivier, your Destination Expert

My story with Sri Lanka began more than 10 years ago with the meeting of my future wife, who was born and raised in her life. After several round trips, we take the plunge and decide to settle there.
I am passionate very quickly for Colombo, this capital which contains authentic and animated places. I will be happy to make you discover off the beaten track to meet the population and their traditions.
I discovered this magical island where welcome and kindness are not empty words and qualities anchored in all Sri Lankans.
Lovers of nature and hiking, I find in this island all that I need. A variety of landscapes: green mountains with beaches lined with coconut trees. The local cuisine, generous and spicy is also a valuable asset of this country with multiple flavors.
I want to share all these encounters, these new places and my passion for the country and I do not doubt that Sri Lanka will fill you and justify its reputation of “Pearl of the Indian Ocean”.

Olivier speaks french and english.
