Educational Tours - Why Us?
Health & Safety
Whilst fun is positively encouraged, the safety of students and teachers is paramount.
Drivers and tour directors who accompany each tour are fully CRB compliant and the tour directors are available 24 hours a day for the duration of the tour. In fact, the majority of our tour directors are ex-teachers and head teachers. All vehicles are maintained to a high standard and legal driving hours regulations are strictly adhered to. We can obtain risk assessments for most attractions, theme parks and hotels.
‘European Heritage Tours Schools Safety Charter’ sets out the responsibilities of us as a company as well as what is expected from the teachers and students. It is the only charter approved by ‘Belt Up School Kids’ (BUSK). As a 'BUSK Approved' member (license # BASW001), we are licensed to carry the BUSK logo to let you know that all coach drivers used on our school trips are given single rooms in quiet areas of a hotel and to provide assurance that no driver is expected or required to sleep in a tent when on an adventure activity holiday. Drivers are not on holiday, they are working and in order that they remain alert behind the wheel every time they drive the party, it is essential they have undisturbed sleep. We are audited by BUSK to ensure we are complying with the terms and conditions of membership. If you find out that our drivers have shared rooms on a school trip, please report this to BUSK.
Our extensive tour programme enables us to forge close relationships with luxury hotels. We mostly accommodate our school groups in 4* hotels which have been consistently tried and tested. We believe this luxury adds to the overall experience of the students. Good buffet breakfasts and excellent restaurant dinners are offered and each hotel offers high security for your peace of mind.
That’s not to say however that some educational groups opt to stay at hostels, in which case we use only the highest quality, most reputable.
We will work tirelessly to make your tour an unforgettable experience, balancing fun with an educationally rich itinerary. You may already know exactly what you want and where you wish to travel or you may require some inspiration from us. Whatever key-stage study tour you wish to organise, we will meet the level of assistance or advice you may need to design and tailor your perfect tour with attention paid to every detail. No matter what age or size of your group we can help you and even organise cross-curricular tours to maximise the appeal.
