school tour Testimonials
Our students had a wonderful time that inspired them to “Do daring things”. They have returned home filled with memories of fun and challenging events shared with their friends.
I forgot to thank you for arranging this in such a professional manner. Your calm and knowledgeable approach helped us run two successful camps, while knowing that so much has been taken care of. Looking forward to SC3 in 2019.
This meant travelling to many other relevant and interesting locations throughout the US, Washington, Florida, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Lucy understood our focus on STEM and made many suggestions of appropriate locations and institutions to visit and organised everything we needed. The students were dazzled by the vast areas in which STEM was a crucial component.
The large number of careers the students are now considering is a direct result of the variety of experiences that they have had on their tour. Lucy has a detailed understanding of the needs of school groups and provides outstanding support and assistance with all aspects of organisation, from risk management and seating on flights to dealing with the paperwork for Space Camp.
She works directly with staff and parents to ensure that any questions are addressed quickly and efficiently. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Lucy has a great deal of experience and knows exactly what has to be done to ensure a safe and trouble free experience. I have no hesitation in recommending Edu School Tours as an outstanding service provider.
Highlights include the Smithsonian museums in Washington, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Centre, and viewing the launch of the Space X Falcon 9 rocket.
The challenging tasks really made us think deeply and I enjoy the set backs that were thrown at us and working through these.
I would recommend this tour to anyone with a passion for science or just learning in general!
My personal highlight was the Newseum, seeing how America culturally responds to worldwide events. Overall the trip was a memorable trip that taught us so much about American culture and science.
I recommend the tour to anyone who loves science to any degree. The NASA tour couldn’t have been possible without the hard work of Mr Priskich and all the other teachers who came.
Space Camp was an amazing experience where we had to work as a team with people all over the world to participate in activities. Thank you so much for all that were involved, the trip wouldn’t of been as fantastic without you.
The final few days before leaving can be hectic as last minute issues arise. Edu School Tours was available 24/7 to smooth uncertainty and give guidance. The travel experience itself was educational, inspirational and amazing. As issues arose during the trip, Edu School tours were there every step along the way. Even lost passports were located following their advice.
I highly recommend Lucy and her team at Edu School tours to tailor a stress free educational travel experience for your school community.
What an extraordinary way to spend term break holidays! No textbook or family holiday could have provided Ben the enormous learning experience of the last 2 weeks! Learning to be independent – checking in at the airport/customs, dealing with luggage delays, budgeting finances, experiencing self-guided activities, visiting fascinating, exciting and beautiful locations, meeting new people from various cultures and countries and hearing amazing stories of space missions, space facts and experiencing extraordinary simulator exercises!!
The meticulous preparation, research and organisation of Bialik’s first USA Space Camp Tour by Lucy at Edu School Tours and the dedication, diligence and extraordinary efforts and hard work of the accompanying teachers made it all happen. The warmth, support and knowledge of Malcom and Chaniece at USA Space Camp and of course, the camaraderie and exemplary behaviour of the attending students was outstanding! So THANK YOU to all involved for creating the opportunity of a lifetime!! Ben relished every moment. He will have many happy memories and stories to share for years to come.
Thank you for creating a wonderful experience for our children. These memories will stay with them for the rest of their life and the friendships they have forged in this journey. Thank you to your team of carers who “surrogated” and mentored our kids during this trip. The priceless input from other adults is a gift from mankind, and the learning experience of living and caring for each other in the team, can only enrich their lives as fellow human beings. This journey seems to be filled with lots of “first” time experiences and observations. In fact their sharing is only the tip of the “iceberg” in the richness that has deposited into their memory cells of their student hood. On behalf of my family, and most of the families in this mailing list, thank you and thank you for enriching the students. That Perth Modern School has provided this unique learning experience is a great extracurricular activity.
Your efforts over the entire trip (and especially the last couple of days) are very greatly appreciated.
Such a positive experience for her, and I’m truly grateful for all the time and effort that went into the planning and delivery of such an amazing experience. Thank You!
This year our twenty four students and three staff will be joined by other students and staff from Doncaster Secondary College. Since the first tour in 2007 to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama and Kennedy Space Centre in Orlando, Florida, we have expanded the itinerary to include a stopover in San Francisco. The planning and on-going support provided by Lucy has always been very professional and absolutely reliable. Lucy has also had personal experience in accompanying staff and a large cohort of students to ensure that the tour runs as smoothly as possible. Lucy works closely with the staff and is involved from the very beginning to assist with all the details of the tour reparation.
Assuring the parents and school community that all of our planning meets Department of Education guidelines is paramount in our decision to continue our working relationship with Lucy. In the time that I have been involved with Lucy in organising Space Camp Tours to Huntsville other schools have contacted me as a referral.
I have no hesitation in recommending Lucy as the best group travel coordinator in organising tours to Space Camp. I can also recommend for her invaluable assistance in my own personal travel needs.
On behalf of the tour team that recently went to Boston, New York, Washington, Orlando and Huntsville (Space Camp) can I extend a massive thank you. Your professionalism, from the outset, made the experience one to remember on so many levels.
As the School Tour Organiser, you made the task of taking 38 students and staff across the other side of the world manageable (and even enjoyable) with your step-by-step support. Whilst on tour, your continued support ensured that the needs of the whole group were continually catered for. As tour staff, this ensured we were able to focus our energies on the students, their welfare and more importantly, their happiness on what was a wonderful experience. Your attention to detail, prompt responses, open communication style and support were faultless. All of your work ensured that we all had a once in a lifetime experience.
The students were overwhelmed with their experience which was made all the more possible due to your tireless contributions.
Thank you for providing him with such a wonderful and smooth running experience.
