Need inspiration?

Zoe has picked her top three destinations and explained why they’re such a good option for your next school trip adventure!


• Harlem Civil Rights Tour

• Broadway Workshops

• Guggenheim New York

I love New York and who wouldn’t?! New York is our most popular long haul tour, and for good reason. We all know it from the world of TV and film, and it has that pull as the best city in the world and students always want to be a part of it.

A great option for cross-curricular trips, with the world of Broadway for drama students, an abundance of world-famous art museums for the art and design groups and it’s also ideal for food technology, with culinary influences from all over the world thanks to its diverse, multicultural society, plus so many more.

I have been to New York many times, but I can never wait to go back and there’s always something new to discover.


• Cu Chi Tunnels

• Mekong Delta Floating Markets

• Boat Cruise Ha Long Bay

A wonderful opportunity to visit a country full of history and beauty. It is so interesting to study the Vietnam War from the Vietnamese side. We’re used to seeing films based on the American participation in the conflict, but very rarely are we able to look at the story from the Vietnamese side – I certainly found it very eye-opening.

But to focus purely on the war would be a waste, the country is full of stunning scenery and a highlight has to be Ha Long Bay. The chance to cruise on a traditional junk boat around the islands is a wonderful experience I will never forget and is sure to be a pleasure for any geography student.


• Taj Mahal

• Cycle Tour of Old Delhi

• Qutab Minar

One of the best value long-haul tours, India offers you a full programme that will keep you busy from dusk ‘til dawn.

Our local partners are amazing and the feedback we receive from our groups is beyond positive. They really do care about the experience for the groups but also for the local community that they will come into contact with in-destination, making sure it is a positive event to remember for everyone.

You will experience a different culture in the most rewarding way and come away with lasting memories of this most colourful of countries and its wonderful people.
