School trips can be immensely valuable learning experiences for students of all ages and are a terrific way to reward pupils for their hard work. They can also be daunting to arrange for teachers, particularly when it is a large group. Not all off-the-shelf packages are suitable, yet tailoring an excursion to your own specific needs can be stressful and filled with hurdles. |
The School Travel Company has expertise in producing bespoke itineraries to take the stress out of arranging these outings and ensure that it is a fun, valuable and memorable venture for both pupils and teachers.
So, why should you opt for a tailored experience rather than an off-the-shelf trip?
Peace of Mind
You can rest assured that you are in good hands when you leave the organisation of the tour up to a team of dedicated specialists. Once contact has been made and you have discussed the type of excursion that you are looking for, the team will get to work and take care of everything from start to finish. There is a 24-hour emergency number if you require any assistance, whether this is during the planning stage or on the trip itself.
No school, or even class, is the same, which is why it is so important to tailor educational visits to the group. Tailored itineraries help the outing to be successful, enjoyable and valuable and the team of expert organisers will work closely alongside you to make sure that your needs are met.
One of the major benefits of using a professional service offering bespoke trips is that you get a dedicated tour organiser. This specialist will be able to make recommendations and offer support at every stage of the trip to make sure that the right decision is always made. In addition to enabling you to easily make any changes, they can eliminate any stress and help to make it a positive experience.
Here are some popular educational visits that can be customised to suit your needs:
• Paris - Four Nights: the French capital may be known as one of the most glamor-ous destinations on the planet, but it also offers the perfect backdrop for a highly educational trip, particularly for French language students. A four-night visit allows pupils to explore the City of Lights and immerse themselves in the rich history and culture found here.
• London - Three Nights: You do not have to travel overseas for a valuable learning experience. A three-night excursion to London can take students to the capital’s many great historical sites and museums to learn about their home nation. These trips can also include evening meals and a West End Show.
• Golden Triangle: Dazzle your group with this incredible voyage to India where they can see Old and New Delhi along with mesmerising sights like the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Additionally, the group can spend time with those living in local villages and see a rural and traditional way of life. This eye-opening visit will be one that your students never forget.
Educational visits are important ventures for students of all ages, but they should always be tailored to the group. This can be an intimidating task to undertake, but The School Travel Company can take all of the stress out of organising and deliver a brilliant expe-rience for all.
