Our 7-step method to planning your school trip:

We understand that planning high school travel programs can be an overwhelming task. That's why we've created a comprehensive 7-step method to make the process easier and more efficient.

Step 1 - Consultation Meeting

We will first meet to discuss your tour and gain an understanding of your vision and expectations for your trip. We will also review your budget and discuss any special requirements from you or your students that may need to be incorporated into the itinerary.

We will provide feedback and guidance on how best to accomplish your travel goals.

Step 2 - Proposal Development

Once all the information has been gathered, our travel professionals take the utmost care when crafting your itinerary, carefully mapping out every detail 12-18+ months in advance.

We provide all of the necessary information you need — airline schedules and routes, hotels and accommodations with space specifically blocked for your group, and restaurant recommendations tailored to fit any taste buds, all while breaking down each day so that no stone is left unturned!
