About Weekend Student Adventures

WSA specializes in budget tours designed for American study abroad students and young backpackers in Europe. Students abroad utilize their free time on weekends to travel throughout the continent, so we designed a tour company specifically (but not exclusively) for them as the safe, convenient, and most cost-effective way to do so.  We provide locally guided weekend tours to top destinations such as Budapest, Prague, Krakow, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Edinburgh, and Amsterdam! We also provide fall, spring, and summer break tours through 4-5 cities spanning 8-10 days each, along with our popular celebration trips such as Easter in Rome, or St. Paddy’s day in Dublin. Our award-winning trips are designed from the ground up to appeal to millennial travellers, as reflected by our hand-picked guides, uniquely crafted itineraries, and the best activities included for an unforgettable weekend.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • Do your tours include travel insurance?

    No, they don't. We strongly recommend acquiring travel insurance for yourself and particular situation. We recommend this as we can't offer refunds for missed flights, sickness, changed exam dates, visiting parents or anything else.

  • How active are WSA tours?

    Our tours are VERY active. Before booking, please ask yourself if you can walk up to three miles at a time, ride a bike for two hours and carry your own bags regardless of how much sleep you got the night before. Seeing any city in Europe in just one weekend is ambitious, and our tour itineraries reflect this. We run all over the place, so you gotta keep up! You're responsible for your own health and actions throughout the entirety of the tour. Please see our Terms & Conditions for all the details and information you need to know.

  • Who will actually be leading my tour?

    We pride ourselves on our passionate, knowledgable and professional local guides. Our destinations have their guide's profile posted on the sidebar. You can read up on them in more depth on our WSA Team Page. Our guides are the public face of WSA. For this reason, our CEO & President, Andy Steves, has handpicked our staff on the ground to ensure incredible experiences in any destination on any weekend.

  • Is all local transportation included?

    All local transportation is included when you are with the group. There will be a few hours here and there when you will be given time to explore the city a bit on your own. During this time you will need to cover any transportation you decide to take, whether it's a cab, metro, bus, etc.

  • I couldn't find a flight that would get me in to the hostel before 10am on Friday morning but your website says the tour departs at 10am. Will this be a problem?

    No worries! We know many of the budget flights get you in at awkward hours. Get in when you can, and our excellent hostel staff will help you get caught up with the tour in a jiffy! We do recommend trying to find a flight that gets in on Thursday night though, just to make the most of your weekend and avoid any issues that could delay your arrival to the tour on Friday!

  • Are meals included in the tour price or do we pay for all of them separately?

    The food and drinks are not included, but we have a great list of delicious, budget friendly suggestions and our local guide will be able to point you in the right direction! Simply put, some are included, some are not.

  • Is local transportation included in the cost or is it separate? Do students all buy a Eurorail card?

    All local transportation is included when you are with the group! There will be some times when you'll have a few hours to explore on your own before meeting up with the group again so if you hop on the public transportation during that time you'll have to cover it, but all of the group transportation within Amsterdam is included. All students do not buy the Eurorail pass, it's really up to you.

  • Am I guaranteed to stay in the same hostel room with my friends?

    We do our best to get friends together, but room assignment is something that individual hostels coordinate on their own systems. So, while we try to put friends together in the same room, it's never something we can guarantee.

  • Where and when do we meet with the group on Thursdays to begin the trip?

    On Thursday night you will arrange for your transportation to take you straight to the hostel. The group will arrive at various times and the group will begin the tour Friday morning at the hostel. Thursday night is a great time to get a little solo exploring in with you and your friends and meet others in the group.

  • What hostel are we staying at and how do I get there?

    We stay in great hostels from Dublin to Prague, and Rome to London. About 1 week ahead of your tour start date, we'll send you all the prep info you need to know including weather, directions to the hostel, hostel name and itinerary info.
