Garrison Conner, Director of Admission, Christ School, January, 2016
"Communication with CKC Tours is excellent. Kay is remarkable with her turn around time in responding to a question or concern. Kay's ability to understand what schools and programs I need to visit is stellar. By the time the planning stages are through, I know that I will have the ability to expand my knowledge base on a variety of levels thanks to Kay's planning. With CKC Tours' help, my knowledge base will increase helping my practice to grow."
Dana Stahl, Educational Alternatives, LLC, December, 2015
"Wonderful as usual! CKC makes every stage smooth and simple. We had all the documentation when we needed it and everything was clear, concise and well mapped out. CKC makes the whole process seamless and simple and their attention to detail and screening process help put the right consultants in touch with the right programs. Furthermore, the costs associated are very reasonable which is a big plus."
