Why consider our service ?

 Accommodation

 

You may be paying a budget price but you will not want low-quality accommodation. We always provide accommodation that is excellent and sometimes superb.

 Catering

 

This tour is offered on a half board basis. Breakfasts are provided on a fully free and generous buffet basis. In reality, students usually like to have lunch with their friends, so we can provide free time for lunch to facilitate this and to enable party leaders to enjoy a hot meal in a pleasant restaurant.

 Flights

 

We try to book flights as close to the schools as possible, although this is not always possible. In any case, we do not confirm until they have been approved by party leaders. We include hand luggage for students as this is sufficient.

 Coach transfers

 

We use coach transfers to and from the airport.
Do not worry about organising transfers to and from the airport. We will do this for you and include it in the tour cost.
Most sites are within walking distance, but we also include transfers by metro.

 Large groups. Small groups

 

We specialise in the preparation and execution of tours for large groups of over 140 participants.
With a large group, it is worth considering travel by coach. We can offer highly attractive prices. We are happy to run tours for small or very small groups. With a small group, it is worth considering transfers by air.

 Getting started

 

  • On your initial contact, we will establish the basic information on your proposed tour – Where? When? Subject themes? Approximate dates and numbers? Ages of students/ key stage(s)
  • We will work on a suggested itinerary and send this to you with further information that will include an initial safety assessment for your tour.
  • We will also work out a tour price that will be less than if you organised the tour yourself on as like for like basis.
  • We are available to visit you at your educational establishment to discuss your programme and we are happy to lend a hand to parents’ meeting if this is of help.
  • If you are interested and would like to go ahead we will ask you to complete a ‘Provisional Reservation Form.’ In fact, this holds you to nothing, but if we receive this we will know that you are serious and we will have the information that we need to start making arrangements.
  • We will ask you for a date when it is convenient for you to pay a non-returnable deposit. The amount of this deposit will be a matter of agreement. We do make an effort to work with you whenever possible.
  • We have a team of experienced and professional tour organisers who will make all the bookings and other arrangements for your tour. Every time a new booking is made you will be sent an updated organisation chart, so you will know exactly what is going on.
