Teacher Reviews of our Student Travel Company

Teacher Reviews for Educational Travel Service, Inc.

Wondering what to expect when you book your school trip & student travel through us? We strive to provide outstanding service and we think we do. But you don’t need to take our word for it. Read what these teachers have to say and judge for yourself. And know this – when you choose us to help you plan your educational group trip, you can anticipate the same exceptional experience – that’s our promise!

We have returned safe and sound with the original 47 students that we took to Spain and France. I know I speak for my colleagues when I say that you outdid yourselves this time. The fact that we could be flexible in our itinerary with 53 people in Paris says it all. We would also like to thank you for the immediate attention we received when needed. 

Once again, our deepest and most sincere thanks for helping us keep our trip fluid and dynamic. It’s what we like!

For about 20 years, I travelled with most all the other student warehouse travel companies and I was never totally satisfied. I tolerated the disappointments for so long because I did not know that there was an alternative until I found ETS. I was nervous at first, but it is a teacher’s travel dream come true and now there is no going back!

I can choose where I want to go and what I want to do. There was NO flexibility with the other companies. In addition, I like travelling with just my students, not filling up a bus to make a quota.

The accommodations are superior, centrally located hotels, which is not a priority of the other companies no matter how many times I asked. Meals are in restaurants frequented by the locals and there is always a choice for the students, which is a big step forward.

Another valuable difference is the ease of a Burlington or Montreal departure, usually resulting in a direct flight from Montreal, a luxury never afforded me with the other companies. I am so happy that I “took the plunge” and I recommend ETS to all my world language colleagues without reservation!

Educational Travel Service is the best! The trip they’ve helped me build to Ireland is exactly what I want for my students. ETS has allowed me to specify sites and experiences I want to include on every step of our tour, and they have suggestions that make the trip even richer. Our tour is full of unique, hands-on experiences that I have never seen offered through other companies. They are responsive, interested, and professional. I can’t recommend ETS highly enough.

I loved the way ETS was able to customize our trip to meet our individual needs. It was a fabulous trip. We more than got our money’s worth. I will never use another student travel company again!

South Burlington High School has been working with Educational Travel Service to arrange travel for our International Exchange programs in Europe, Asia, and Central America for over 25 years. I personally have had the pleasure to work with them for the past two years. Educational Travel Service’s wealth of knowledge, commitment to quality student travel and personal attention to every detail help make our students’ travel experience a success. When any issue has arisen such as student cancellations, flight delays, and conflicts while abroad I have been able to easily contact them and the resolution is quick and thorough. I highly recommend ETS to any group considering student travel.
