BENEFITS TO TEACHERS & SCHOOL

  • You are busy teaching. Send us your risk assessment document and we will complete the tour section for your perusal. We are familiar with our overseas venues, hotels and locations and able to cover more details. This will assist you with all important H&S angles.
  • A school tour is no teacher’s holiday, you are on duty 24×7: Teachers are accommodated in single hotel rooms, unless specifically requested otherwise.
  • Premium tours include all dinners – looking for a restaurant able to accommodate a group with individual food requirements is NOT something you want to experience with a group of hungry teenagers at the end of a long and exciting day.
