"I have taken students to Washington DC and surrounding areas for 23 years. It wasn't long after I switched from one of the largest tour companies to School Tours of America, that I realized what my students and I had been missing for so long- personalized and friendly service, attention to detail, and an eagerness to help guide us through the typical challenges confronting school groups traveling across the country to our nation's capitol." Harry Greenberg - History Teacher; Concord, CA


"Wow! What a trip! School Tours of America did a wonderful job to assure my kids got what they paid for and MORE. We were spoiled with an awesome hotel, great drivers and guides, quality meals, and security. The monuments and memorials are spectacular…my kids truly learned that freedom is not free and they have memories that will last a lifetime.

School Tours of America’s customer service is the best in the student tour industry." Larry Wiers - History Teacher; Spring, TX

Our trip to Washington, D.C. and New York coordinated by School Tours of America was awesome! Our tour guides were incredible and imparted a wealth of knowledge about the cities and our heritage. The trip was the smoothest, most enjoyable one ever. School Tours of America took care of everything so I didn’t have to worry about anything.

"It has become very obvious to me this year that some companies are in the business just to make money. School Tours of America is in the business to extend the classroom.

"I have been taking my American Government class to Washington, D.C. for 24 years. I chose School Tours of America because of their experienced staff. I completely trust their staff to run my trip like clockwork. Because of their commitment to making each trip special, they are there for me day or night if I need anything. The staff is always friendly and cheerful on the telephone or in person. I would not consider traveling with another tour company. Because of their personal attention to me and my students, we have developed a close, lasting friendship. They are the best!" Rosemary Collins - Dean of Students; Marvell, AR

"One word that describes School Tours of America, family! Being a Principal and tour director for many Washington , D.C. trips, safety, responsibility, and organization are of the utmost importance when sending kids across the country. I can assure you, you will find nobody more committed to these values and offering true individual care than the awesome team at STA. They care about your individual needs no matter the size of the group. Even though we are a small school, STA makes us feel like their #1 client. Our representative has become part of our family. She truly shows passion for School Tours of America and lives up to the standards they have set. I believe you too will realize the "family" commitment STA offers. I highly recommend you use School Tours of America on your next trip." Mike Mancini - Principal; Redwood City, CA


"Living in a small, rural community in Missouri, the opportunity to send a student to Washington , D. C. and Williamsburg is priceless. Being a full-time social studies teacher and coach, I never thought I would have the time to sponsor such a trip. However, School Tours of America does all the planning. With their experienced tour coordinators and devoted staff, my expectations are always exceeded by providing us with our requested hotels, drivers and guides. My gratification always comes at the end when I receive the positive comments and heart-felt thank you letters of the students. STA is the best." Jim Radel - Social Studies; Chillicothe , MO


"School Tours of America planned a trip for my school to Washington , D.C. which will never be forgotten. My friends and I became even more patriotic than we already were as we visited the same places where great Americans such as Lincoln, Kennedy, and King once stood, and we toured the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery. It was a huge thrill for us to stand inside of the buildings where democracy remains active, such as the Capitol Building, and to see the places where one can realize the greatness of the Armed Forces, such as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the World War II Memorial, and the Tomb of the Unknowns. Thanks goes out to School Tours of America for creating a wonderful trip which has inspired my classmates to become involved in government. I will never forget this patriotic trip." Ryan R. - 8th Grader, Roscoe, IL


"Our daughter attended the trip to New York and had the time of her life. We were not able to go on the trip but were thrilled with all the plans and places they were able to see in such a short time and felt completely assured that she had proper chaperoning and care. You could not possibly do all the wonderful things that School Tours plans for this very low price. It is an amazing way to see such an incredible city." Lisa and Steve Cox - Parents, MO


"In my 30-year teaching career, I have taken students to Europe, Washington, Williamsburg, Orlando, and New York. By far, my best trips have been to "The Big Apple" with School Tours of America. My STA coordinator went above and beyond to honor all of our requests. The hotel, the food, the Broadway shows, the tours, and the guide were all everything we expected and more. Most importantly, my students, the other chaperones, and I felt totally safe with STA at the helm." Becky Bannon - Drama Teacher; Myrtle Beach, SC


"I wanted to thank STA for the wonderful trip you provided Cherry Creek High School... What is most impressive about your company is the individual attention that each school gets. Your staff understands teenagers and carefully guides them through the experience making them feel safe and appreciated at all times. Please allow me to endorse your company to other teachers. Use my name so that  I can share the details of our trip with prospective clients. I look forward to our future trips." Jennifer Condreay - Theatre Director, Greenwood Village, CO


"I want to thank STA for a great tour of Washington DC, Jamestown, Williamsburg and Philadelphia. I accompanied my granddaughter to more or less keep an eye on her and ensure her safety at all times. The first day I found out that she was completely safe and she was going to have a most memorable experience…Thank you for very nice hotels, pleasant restaurants, an the opportunity to see everything possible in such a short time. It was well worth the cost." Carol Jenson - Grandparent, Battle Ground, WA
