Warren’s been at Studytrips for 20 years and is a Hereford United fan – hence the grey hair! His worldwide adventures were slightly curtailed when he discovered that his wife had a fear of flying! These days you’ll usually find him under canvas on a French campsite! His favourite destinations are New York and Lundy Island (a rock in the Bristol Channel where he got married). When not in the office Warren is ‘Lycra Man, pounding the streets of SE London (not a good look), on a 5 a side pitch or playing with Sylvanians (with his 8 year old daughter, he points out). email me
Carla was born and educated in Evora, Portugal and has lived in London since 2000. Before joining Studytrips in 2007 Carla worked in the retail industry gaining vital experience in customer care and management. Carla really enjoys walks in the countryside, cycling at the weekends, cooking (and eating the results!) and reading.
If given the opportunity, Carla would like to travel and explore South America, Brazil in particular. email me

Adelle’s love of travel and sightseeing started early – she grew up in a small village 10 miles from Stonehenge! Adelle graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a degree in French and Spanish. Initially working as a TEFL teacher for Studytrips Summer Schools Adelle then moved to the Tours team. Her favourite country is Spain after living there for a year as part of her degree, the language, cuisine and people. She loves to travel and has visited the majority of our destinations whilst ticking off as many Spanish towns and cities as possible! email me
Jamie is now back in the ISIS fold and raring to after a year off to look after her baby daughter. In fact she says that she comes to work for a break! Jamie has built up strong relationships with many clients over the past 7 years at Studytrips, many of which are drawn in by her infectious, bubbly personality and willingness to go that ‘extra mile’. Jamie’s favourite destination is Ibiza, although party nights at Pacha are now a distant memory.
