Intrax tours are run very smoothly, and communication with the Intrax staff before and during the tour was well-coordinated. On the tour, I was impressed by the overall quality of Intrax's students, who were professional and had good English skills.
Lagoon has found that the international participants bring an added culture that our local employees and park guests have come to love. We could not imagine our Lagoon team without these great students.
Five years ago I was introduced to Intrax and now I won’t use anybody else because I love Intrax. I love everybody I work with and the quality of students they bring. The J-1 program is absolutely one of the best things for American business, for diversity and to learn different cultures.
