Our desire is to build a strong relationship with every one of our Trip Sponsors.
Being 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, and 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 been certified through ITMI (International Tour Management Institute), IGA(International Guide Academy), or TripSchool. We also hire retired educators with years of travel experience.
All Tour Directors must pass a thorough background check.
Physical office open Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Talk to a live person anytime you call during business hours.
On-line registration is simple and takes just a few minutes.
Parents receive both emails & text messages as payment reminders.
Option to have payments automatically made on each due date.
Thank you for the work your company has done keeping us up to date with our DC trip. Unfortunately, our class did decide to cancel due to COVID. Also, thank you for working so quickly on our refund. I received the notification emails this morning. I wish Student Adventures all the best through this unprecedented time.
– Beth P, Parent from a canceled trip
I want to thank everyone at Student Adventures for how you handled our school’s DC trip cancelation from the COVID-19 pandemic. Brian was always available to answer our questions about rescheduling or cancelling the trip. It was such a huge deal for the district and our parents, to have all the refunds quickly processed directly, to each parent. When we are ready to travel, you will be the only company I will use. Best of luck and looking forward to traveling again!
