Best school trip ever ...

As a party leader you spend a lot of time planning, worrying and, go on admit it, getting excited about your next school trip. Before the big 'off' there is so much to sort - which dream destination this time? Once that's been decided then you need to drum up the support and get the right number of students on board. If that lot hasn't got you going then thoughts about insurance, passports, health and safety etc. get you fretting. Then the day of the school tour dawns, and you know that from here anything could happen. You pray that all's going to be OK. Let this be the school trip of a lifetime! no broken bones, conked out coaches etc.. A whirlwind of adventure and excursions later - school trips have a way of going quickly - and you find yourself on the homeward journey. At which point the most amazing thing you could ever hope to hear is one of your students telling you: 'That was the best trip of my life!'  

Let Voyager organise your school trip and we can guarantee your students will have the best trip ever. And, we reckon our experienced team of tour coordinators know enough about planning your school tour to make everything run as smoothly as possible so you don't need to worry. At Voyager, this summer term has been busy and buzzy with school tours to France, Spain, Germany, the USA and London. As ever, the watersports down at Argelès-sur-Mer have been utterly awesome. Argeles is a water wonderland with miles of wide sandy beach and the warm waters in the south of France. A typical eight-day school tour with Voyager includes full-day programmes of watersports like kayaking, canoeing, sailing, snorkelling and paddle boarding as well as excursions to Barcelona, trips to Picasso and Dali's homes, a Pyrenees river descent and trek in the mountains. And, for those who like a little more adrenalin with their action there is canyoning and white water rafting to try. We want your party to have a brilliant time but safety is the real key to having a great school adventure holiday. Our team of instructors are handpicked by us because they have the best qualifications, vast experience and a professional attitude. Judging by the comments we are getting on our Twitter pages, they also know how to deliver the best school trips. Usually, action does speak louder than words but sometimes the words sound fantastic too - here are some of our favourite tweets about a recent trip to Argeles: 'Best days of my life', 'Thankyou so much, it was amazing', 'Best trip of my life, it was incredible, thankyou!' At the Voyager offices these tweets really make our day, which is partly why we go out of our way to make the best trips ever!
