  • Secondly, this structure of having your own private tour means you can custom-design your own tour exclusively for your own group anywhere around the themes, dates and destinations of your choosing and that is exactly what Mr/Mrs has done with their tour of ........(Historic and Literary England).
  • Finally (if we are trying to give the group a maximum insight into the local culture) let's have a guide with you at all times throughout the day. The guides are under a strict brief to make the evenings as much an activity filled part of the day as the morning and afternoon. To be honest, it is often such personal touches that we think can make the difference between a good tour and a really great tour.
  • If that is the case, let’s include in advance as many of the admissions as possible. Nothing is worse than putting a student in a position where they have traveled half-way round the world and don’t have the funds to visit a sight on any one day that they have waited half their life to see. This also means that the students don’t have to carry large amounts of spending money, which for younger students is very important indeed. And this also allows us to take advantage of our group rates for you to offer our group's the best possible value for money at all times.   You are looking at one of our groups at Glastonbury Abbey, sat in front of the grave of King Arthur and Guinevere
  •   Relax, students, it won’t be torture! What do we aim to provide on a daily basis? Variety is the key word. Essentially a balance of an educational or cultural visit, then a recreational activity (coastal walk, river cruise, ascent of a tower)* and then free-time and spare-time activities.
