TransportationYour total package will include both round-trip and local transportation. We have built strong relationships with airlines, Amtrak and the most reputable bus companies so we are able to offer you the most reliable and cost effective means of transportation for your group.
Hotel AccommodationsUnderstanding that groups need flexibility in terms of accommodations, we offer you a wide range of hotels, from budget inns, to luxury hotels so you can design your tour to meet the exact needs of your group. Typically, students are roomed in quadruple occupancy rooms and adults in double occupancy rooms. Free chaperones are roomed in double occupancy. All accommodations include private bath and TV and are inspected by our travel experts for safety and comfort.
MealsWe believe that a city's cuisine is an important part of its culture so we give you a variety of dining options ranging from hotel meals to specialty restaurants. You make the choices!
Free ChaperonesBecause of your initiative and hard work, your students will experience the benefits of an educational tour. For maximum safety and to help ease your responsibility, we encourage ample adult supervision on each tour. One chaperone is included free of cost for every 20 students traveling. Beyond that, we will build into the cost as many additional chaperons as you like. You should afford yourself the peace of mind and confidence your efforts have earned.
