Millennium Tours and New Zealand Prime Minister Discuss Benefits of Travel for Texans

October 3, 2016 (Austin, TX) -- Between December 5, 2016 and February 5, 2016, the direct flight from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Auckland, New Zealand will increase services from five times per week to once per day. Mohib Mamujee, President and owner of Millennium Tours, attended a meeting with John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand, last week to discuss the benefits that this frequent flight service will offer Texans travelling to New Zealand and Australia. Millennium Tours already provides clients with highly-customized group tours to locations worldwide, including … [Read more...]

Study Abroad France: How to Do Paris in 1 Weekend

This weekend, my entire study abroad class went to Paris to visit the Pasteur Institute and most people ended up staying for the weekend. It was a lovely weekend straight out of a movie, but we explored so much in so little time. We hopped on a train early Friday morning and left Paris on Sunday afternoon. Luckily, we managed to snag reservations for one of the fancy fast trains, so our travel time was shortened significantly. We arrived just in time for lunch of Friday, so we found our way to a interesting church in Madeleine, which we learned served a three-course meal in a crypt for … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Maastricht: Traveling Close to Home

This week has been super busy with tests back in Maastricht for our Pathophysiology and Global Health classes, so a bunch of friends and I decided to keep our travels close to home! Some of us stayed in the city, while others of us made day trips to Germany or Belgium! This past weekend, most of my travel group friends (pictured above in one of our dorm rooms, holding up our pinkies to represent our favorite Maastricht ice cream parlor, Pinky) decided to spend time studying for our upcoming tests in Maastricht. To start, we first spent our weekend getting some shopping done to prepare … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Europe: Pre-Med Students in Paris

Hello! My name is Jasmine Tuazon, and I am a 4th-year premed biochemistry Baylor University student currently spending a semester in Europe thanks to Millennium Tours, a travel company based in Austin, Texas for group study abroad trips! This weekend from Sept. 9-11, all 38 of us premed students went to Paris! Collectively, we all went to The Pasteur Institute to view all Louis Pasteur’s home and lab where he developed fermentation and discovered racemization and vaccination. Following that, we split up and decided to explore the city either by foot or via bike tour (The picture is … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Europe: Exploring Belgium

For our first weekend trip, some friends and I wanted to travel somewhere fairly close to familiarize ourselves with the transportation system. We ended up finding the town of Bouillon, Belgium which matched our criteria of having a castle, being less than 5 hours away, and having an inexpensive hostel. Bouillon is a gorgeous small town with a homey vibe that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet weekend trip. However, getting there was an adventure that we did not anticipate. We planned the trip out very carefully using the Eurail app and bus schedule for the area. … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Maastricht: Lessons From the First Few Days

It’s been a crazy past few days as my group has traveled to Maastricht and settled into this beautiful city. Millennium Tours did an excellent job coordinating all our travel and everything went smoothly, despite a flight delay. Even though our adventure only started a few weeks ago, I’ve learned many important lessons. 1. The ability to be flexible is so crucial to having a good experience. I learned that plans are going to change without much notice even before I boarded the plane to Amsterdam. The airline we took has a weight restriction on carry on bags so my bags were weighed at the … [Read more...]

Study Abroad France: Midnight in Paris

Upon arriving to Paris I was a bit anxious. News headlines flooded my mind as I anticipated this trip. We arrived to Hotel Novotel and all my worries washed away as we were greeted by friendly concierge and guests— the comfortable beds, cool AC, and Eiffel Tower view out of our window didn’t hurt either! We dumped our bags on the green and white dotted carpet and rushed out of our rooms, eager to explore the city. A gust of wind whipped through my tangled blonde curls as I stood on the edge of the river taking it in. The scene in front of me had been replicated on millions of $1 … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Europe: Toto We’re not in Kansas Anymore

Having spent a couple weeks traveling in Europe now, I’ve quickly picked up on the cultural differences from America. Although London has been most similar to the US, the differences vary from city to city. In my opinion, none of these factors are too limiting or impossible to get around. Plus, half the fun of traveling is submersing yourself in a foreign culture! It was very easy to see why our school chose Imperial College in London as our home base. Imperial has a great location in Chelsea, a nice and very safe district in the city. The streets are clean and relatively all the people … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Italy: Home is Where the Fam Is

For our last week of independent travel, Jill and I stayed in Italy, but we got to meet up with some familiar faces. My mom, dad, brother (Ryan) and his girlfriend (Stephanie) made the long trek over here to gallivant around Italy with us (and give us a free place to stay for a week). It was absolutely delightful having the comfort of family over here as well as having other people plan what to do and navigate where to go. Although we went to many different places around Italy including Sienna, Tuscany, Cinque Terra, and Venice, Florence was our home base for the week. Everywhere we went was … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Prague: To Tour or Not To Tour

Let me start by saying, before this trip abroad I was never very interested in taking tours. I considered myself pretty independent and I’ve always preferred to wander off by myself rather than stay in guided groups of people. When traveling I took notice of famous landmarks, read the information on the plaques, looked around, and thought I saw all there was to see. After this trip abroad with Millennium Tours, I realized I had been traveling the wrong way all this time. One of my favorite parts about London, Rome and Prague have been the guided tours in each place. Along with having … [Read more...]
