I am very proud of the work we do on each trip. We are dedicated to the Travel, Engage, Learn, Experience motto and our mission.

We love getting the feedback but we love to maintain and improved year over year. Cathy, Amy, Becky are example of teachers who have been with us for over 4, 5 and now 7 years. We do work hard and with a sense of urgency to give you the best we can.

Thank you to our travelers, students, parents and teachers and our organizers, teachers and parents.

Owner, GO Educational Tours

 

We absolutely loved all our attractions and the phenomenal assistance we received from Meg and Stefan in planning this exclusive trip for our 8th grade seniors. We loved our GO leader, Michaela.

What was the best aspect of having a GO Leader on tour?

The best aspect of having a GO leade, Michaela, was not having to worry about planning each attraction’s meeting point or picking up tickets at box office. Our GO leader had everything planned out for us. All we had to do was enjoyed the attractions! She was amazing, very helpful, friendly, and developed a wonderful relationship with our kids.

We will absolutely plan our school’s senior trips with GO Educational Tours. I would like to request Michaela to be our GO leader for next year’s senior trip.

Hi Stefan,

Kevin was so great! All the students did keep asking where you were though. LOL. We really had a great trip this summer.

Thanks for everything you do for us!

Thanks, Stefan.

We had a wonderful trip. Students and parents spoke about how much fun they had over the two days.  I’ll fill out the form in the next couple of days.

Hi Stefan!

Just wanted to thank you again for another amazing trip!  As usual the day was packed with wonderful activities and we never worried about a thing.  You have it down to a Science… works like clockwork!  The kids had a blast!  (The show was fabulous!)

Thanks again for ALL you do… it was the BEST!

As always, Stefan was amazing with the students. One kid kept asking if he was a wizard because he was ‘always happy and made stuff happen’. I think the student is right!

The personal attention and enthusiasm given to the group, as well as all the information regarding the site. We were even given useful and interesting information on the bus as we passed landmarks or places of interest.

This is our 4th trip with you guys. A huge positive that we always find is the willingness of the schedule to be flexible to the needs of our students and staff. Unfortunately this year we did not get to see nearly as many memorials or museums. The ‘huggest’ let down was the Holocaust Museum since it is such a huge part of our curriculum.

What was the best aspect of having a GO Leader on tour?

Our GO Leader was great as usual. He took all the stress out of getting a good group of people from point A to point B. He was awesome at rearranging some of our itinerary after our late flight to maximize our enjoyment of NY. He was super flexible and always accommodating my special requests of visits with former teachers, or specific non-traditional events (UCB, Highline, etc.)

Good Afternoon Stefan,

 

I wanted to let you know our trip to DC was fantastic! The students had a great time and [our GO Leader] did an excellent job as our guide, her expertise, professionalism and her impressive historical knowledge were remarkable! She went out of her way to encourage and motivate our students, plus extended respect to each of us. Thank you for your assistance and for allowing us to see Washington DC with you! Sandra and the entire team of the Southeast Scholars Program

I really appreciated how Casey worked with me. This is a great company. Now that you are on the approved vendor list for DCPS I do intend on using the service again next year. Great job & am very satisfied and will refer my colleagues and friends.

I just wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful canvas, we love it.  Actually, Lori walked around school with it all day showing it off.  Every time I think about all of the things you did to make our trip to DC so amazing and memorable, you do something else above and beyond.  Lori and I both agree we would never do any student travel with anyone else because nothing could compare to the experience we had.  We are all excited to see Casey in a few weeks.  I believe you are either in Ireland or getting prepared to go.  Have a wonderful time and we will speak to you soon.

 

Thanks again for everything,
