Worst company ever. Don’t trust your child is safe. The chaperones are no where to be found. The kids damage the hotels, stumble drunk around the halls, get high and have sex in the halls, pee in the elevators and stairs. Saw one boy stumbling so bad he almost fell over the balcony on the 10th floor.
Unless you want a call that your child is dead, in jail or raped I’d suggest you not send them anywhere with this company.

Shady company who operate under several different names, changing it each time people start posting truths and negative reviews about them.
My daughter was supposed to go to The Bahamas for Spring Break on 4/10/20. They provided no flight info up until 10 days before the departure date, when they finally postponed the trip due to the Covid-19 crisis. (We had asked to cancel due to the Corona virus situation but customer service said "pandemics were not covered - no refunds.")
Instead they changed the travel dates to late June and told customers to pay a $479 cancelation fee if they couldn't make it. Many other customers have had similar experiences. Just google Grad City. Check the Better Business Bureau website. We are taking our grievances to the local media here in NY/NYC as well as legal options and an online awareness campaign. Please do your homework before booking any trip with Grad City or their other names - Student City, SpringBreakDiscounts.com and Spring Break Travel.

Horrible service. They refuse to honor a doctors note. Then they refuse to return money because they canceled trip due to Covid. Company is a complete fraud. DO NOT use them. Try other services. Bad people. Horrible customer service

No Supervision June 2019

My husband and I have spent a week at a resort which hosts Gradcity students. I was absolutely mortified with the lack of supervision! As a parent, you want to be able to trust that your child (no matter what age) is safe and taken care of. This is not what we witnessed with these Gradcity students. The students were completely left to their own devices. The supervisors were either huddled in a group socializing amongst themselves, completely absent, or passively sitting by. The students would blare their music and yell at all hours of the night, cut in front of you at the buffet and bar, have sex in the hallways and leave their condoms lying around, leave their drinks everywhere (we even found several when snorkeling at the beach), drink themselves into unconsciousness, and interrupt the hotel shows. I expect teenagers to make questionable decisions, but I also expect their supervisors to watch out for them.

We just returned from a trip to Punta Cana with Grad City. Everything went well. Stacy and Virginia took care of everything and was available at all times for anything we needed. Occidental Caribe was a beautiful resort for the cost.
