Our desire is to build a strong relationship with every one of our Trip Sponsors. Experienced in student travel means you have a knowledgeable professional working with you on your trip. Professional backgrounds in education mean we know what the life of the educator is like. You work with the same person from beginning to end on your trip. Because we are local, we can visit you at the school and attend parent meetings.
Licensed & trained tour guides are contracted to provide historical information. A guide is hired for each bus for city tours. Trip sponsors select when they desire the use of a guide.
Different from tour guides, the tour director’s task is to facilitate the trip. Experienced & trained Tour Directors are contracted by Student Adventures. Tour Directors work with the trip sponsor and bus leaders to keep up with the itinerary or make suggestions and changes when necessary. Tour Directors meet you at the school at the time of departure and travel with your school for the duration of the trip. Tour Directors distribute tickets, cash, vouchers to the buses. Tour Directors send text messages through our trip app to update the group, establish meeting places & times, and trip sponsor’s instructions or expectations. Typically, there is one tour director for 1-4 buses. Student Adventures hires tour directors who have experience through working in education or certified through ITMI (International Tour Management Institute). All tour directors must pass a thorough background check.
