Overview

Our expertise makes us your best bet for your school trip to Paris

Paris has always been a popular destination for school trips and it's no wonder why. The French capital has countless attractions, museums and galleries - many of which Voyager has been successfully sending school groups to for over 10 years. There are so many exciting opportunities to advance your students' learning whatever your educational focus and all of this within a different cultural landscape a short distance from the UK.

Our educational travel experts will help pick the best visits to fit your focus. For science teachers, the City of Science and Industry is popular and as Europe's largest science museum, you're sure to find something to complement your classroom teaching. Musée d’Orsay is unmissable for art students (and a lot less intimidating than the Louvre!) and Musée Carnavalet is the premier destination for teachers who want their students to learn about the history of Paris.

If you want to do some sightseeing, we can arrange a Seine river cruise or a trip to the top of Montparnasse Tower for the best views of Paris! If fun is the only thing on your agenda, you're sure to want to add a day at Disneyland® Paris or Parc Asterix, two of the most popular theme parks with our groups.

We can tailor your itinerary to your unique learning requirements, please contact us for a bespoke quote.
