About YOUR group leader

Chris Garcia – Rhetoric School Principal

I have been attending CCSJ for several years and serving in the Safety and Security Ministry for 2 years.  I feel that the current crisis in morality and values in our nation has made it crucial to teach the next generation a true Biblical worldview as it relates to the founding of America.

I look forward to sharing some of my experiences and my love for the Lord as we explore the birth of our nation and the often overlooked details that are at the very core of what our founding fathers intended. 

The TripAdventures Difference

  • 100% Customized Tour
    We don’t believe in cookie cutter. Every trip is tailored to what your school wants to experience, and we go out of our way to make your trip something you can’t get elsewhere.
  • Authentic, local experiences
    Not just photo stops and sightseeing. Transformational, authentic experiences. We travel like a local: we’ll take trains, ferries, walking the streets, and eat like a local. You won’t be tourists.
  • Better Quality, Better Price
    Central hotels. We don’t cheat on quality by staying an hour away from the cities, and yet we can offer a better price because we don’t spend any money on marketing. We run on word of mouth based on our quality, which means your money goes to the trip, not to office space and glossy brochures.
  • 20+ Years of Leading Tours
    Our entire team is made up of experienced travel professionals who love what they do, and that shows in the tour.
