To help you prepare for your tour, following are some answers to
Frequently Asked Questions and a Quick Checklist.

  • For overnight trips, we will hold a meeting about 2-4 weeks before the trip.  We recommend that every student and at least one parent/guardian attend that meeting.  If you miss the meeting, you can download the materials here.
     

  • All payments are non-refundable.  It is very important to have a guaranteed count of passengers to make the trip planning process easier for everyone - including yourself.  We may not be able to determine a final cost until all payments have been received and we know how many passengers will be on the trip.
     

  • Please refer to your tour's webpage anytime to access important information, specifically about your tour.

Have Fun on Your Tour!

Our trips are structured to provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience for everyone involved.  Students will learn lessons that will last a lifetime, while having fun with their classmates.  We create itineraries that pack in as many different stops as possible so that the students can see all that a city has to offer and want to return to that place to explore with their family, or on their own one day!
