We love student groups, and it shows! With more than 20 years of experience producing one-day and multi-day tours for educators and their classes that combine fun, intrigue, and learning, First Choice Tours is the best equipped company to plan your next trip.
Remember, all tours can be customized specifically for your class!
Every group that we work with has different needs, and a different budget. This is most true of our beloved school groups. We are here to work with you every step of the way to provide your students with a first-class experience regardless of extravagance or limitation. We listen, closely, to what you want to achieve for your students, and offer the best options to meet those needs. Together, and with our experience, your class will enjoy a trip that has just the right balance of fun and educational benefit.
The Convenience You Need
We recognize that as an educator with a very full schedule and little spare time, one of the greatest things we can offer you is convenience. With First Choice Tours working for you there's no need to make dozens of phone calls, keep track of a pile of contracts, worry that the itinerary you've imagined might not work, remember deadlines for rooming lists and meal choices. We handle every arrangement, down to the smallest detail, so that all you have to do is continue to teach your class and look forward to the trip.
Our #1 priority - above all else - is the safety of our groups. When contracting a transportation provider for your group's trip we only use motorcoach companies that are fully licensed and have outstanding U.S. Department of Transportation safety ratings. Additionally, each of our coach companies are required to carry at least $5-million in liability insurance, operate modern & well maintained buses, and employ experienced & professional drivers.
An Exceptional Value
A professional Tour Operator like First Choice Tours leverages their bulk buying power, getting much better rates than the general public, and they pass those saving on to their clients. People often think that their costs would be lower if they handled all of the planning and reservations themselves, but that is simply no the case.
As an added value we offer ONE FREE CHAPERONE FOR EVERY 10 PAYING STUDENTS on all school trips!
Peace Of Mind
We are with you every step of the way. Every student tour group leader has a 24-hour phone number that connects them directly to Maria Manouvelos-Baker, the owner of First Choice Tours. We are a trusted professional tour operator with an impeccable reputation amongst our peers in the industry. We maintain the highest level of membership in the American Bus Association and the National Tour Association - both organizations that require strict standards of their member companies including at least $1-million in professional liability coverage. In addition, First Choice Tours is an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, and belongs to our local Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau. You, and your students, deserve nothing less.
