We like to include all meals for your student! Out tours always enjoy a full, hot buffet breakfast at your hotel’s private banquet room. Lunches are included at various areas depending on your tour location. Most lunches in Washington DC are adult food court vouchers or boxed lunches. NYC lunches are typically $10 cash rebates so you can enjoy food at various deli restaurants. Dinners are always buffet, food court vouchers, specialty meals such as Medieval Times, Hard Rock Cafe, Little Italy restaurants, DJ/pizza party or dinner cruises. Our restaurant vendors know we demand the best food for our tours. Remember, our tour managers receive the same meals as your group!
At Traveling Classrooms, we believe in developing a relationship with you and your school. We hand deliver all forms, attend parent meetings, even collect payments at your school if you desire.
Tour Arrangements: Your tour will be arranged personally by company owner Bob Jackson. When you call Traveling Classrooms, you will speak directly with the owner. Traveling Classrooms will come to your school, listen to your ideas and put together a schedule that your school will enjoy.
Chaperone BBQ Meetings: Prior to your departure, we like to provide a BBQ with your tour managers. These are usually right after school for 45 -60 minutes. You will meet your tour manager and discuss the overall tour. The more we know about each other, the better the working relationship is for the tour.
Tour Managers: Every motorcoach on every tour has a qualified tour manager. We currently employ 15 retired school teachers, head coaches, principals and athletic directors who are trained tour managers. During their careers in education, they sponsored trips with us for more than 15 years. Upon retirement, it was a natural fit for them to work for Traveling Classrooms. All tour managers have more than 25 tours under their belt, many over 50!
Traveling Classrooms negotiates with every vendor we use including our bus companies, hotels, restaurants and admission areas. We understand the lower pricing we receive the lower tour price per student gets passed along to the school. This allows more parents to send their student on your trips. Traveling Classrooms refuses to price gouge. Our tour markup is lower than our competitors. We make a fair profit on our tours, but we will never overprice our product. Even when we know our price is priced $75-$100 lower than our competitors. Traveling Classrooms is proud to provide quality tours at the lowest pricing available.
