I always learnt more outside of the classroom than I did in a classroom setting, but as a child did not get that many opportunities. Working in school travel has given me the chance to help others like me to get the most out of their school years by travelling and learning away from the classroom. – Will Jehu Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

The area is beautiful and really worth visiting. The Schwarzwald Museum was really good and ideal to do before the Eble-Uhren Park as they complimented each other. The Mercedes-Benz Museum was fantastic and the students loved it. The Dorotheenhütte was very popular with our students and most of them made their own vase to take home. The Christmas markets were also excellent to visit with the students – we went to a small local one in Villingen and the large one in Stuttgart. — Ockbrook School , December 2018
