Smaller groups (less than 35)

In order to save money, many of our smaller groups whisk around their host city along with their guide utilizing public metro and bus.

Larger groups (more than 35)

Larger groups are usually the most cost effective and get the best prices. Our largest motor coaches hold a maximum of 56 passengers per coach.


Your group stays at one of our student friendly hotels that are experienced in hosting student groups such as Holiday Inn, Ramada, Choice Hotels, Days Inn, Quality Inn and Best Western usually located in the suburbs of your host city.
