Meet Eugene, Ronee, Adam and Ilana Weissman
Owner/Directors of Weissman Teen Tours
About Weissman Teen Tours
Together, Eugene, Ronee , Adam and Ilana Weissman have given the Weissman Teen Tours its unique "family oriented" style and unusual togetherness that all its members share. They personally supervise and travel with their groups throughout the summer. Their staff of young, dedicated, college graduates, all trained in CPR and first aid, provide the "Weissman Family" with the highest quality of excellence, leadership and warmth.

Having the owners personally lead the tours, fosters spontaneity and affords the group special opportunities that they would never have otherwise experienced. If a meaningful adventure should suddenly present itself, the Weissmans will "jump" at the chance to participate. Groups have, for example, joined the North American Indian Council meetings in Montana, witnessing the tribal dances as well as making new friends. In addition, the European group has dined at a magnificent villa overlooking the Tuscan countryside as guests of friends of the Weissmans; joined a "Sweet 16" party at an Italian dance club by invitation of the owner of an exquisite European hotel; challenged some Swiss friends to a game of tennis in Zermatt; and participated in a special presentation at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, planned exclusively for the Weissman group.

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our “Weissman Family”! We invite you to join us and share our love of travel! For the past thirty-seven years, we have been the ONLY tour with every program personally escorted by the owners - Eugene, Ronee, Adam and Ilana Weissman, staying in all first class and deluxe hotels, resorts and National Park lodges. Thus, we offer the most well-supervised, secure, worry-free program in the student travel industry.

Our team of young, dedicated, professional, college grads, all trained in CPR + First Aid, work with us, beginning with the intensive training sessions, personally led by the Weissman Family, focusing on the safety, as well as the physical and emotional well-being of our teens. On tour, the excitement continues as our staff enthusiastically commits to giving each teen a once in a lifetime experience!

It is a comfort to both parents and travelers to know that Eugene, Ronee, Ilana, or Adam will actually travel on the tours. Parents are always welcome to contact us directly while on tour, or to call our Long Island office where Sharon and Stu are ready to answer any and all questions that you may have. We are in touch with them on a daily basis and we can always be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our program will continue to focus on three unique destinations, enabling us to maintain the highest standards and to devote our attention to each and every teen that travels with us. Whether we are surfing, snorkeling or scuba diving in beautiful Hawaii; horseback riding into Bryce Canyon, visiting the Hearst Castle, cruising to the California Baja, or as an audience member on “American Idol” on the US/Western Canadian Tour; or even taking a romantic moonlight Gondola ride on the Grand Canal of Venice, dancing at International Dance Clubs, or experiencing London Theatre at its best in Europe; "The Weissman Experience" is what dreams are made of.
