We Organise College & School Trips Worldwide

EST are a national leading educational tour operator trusted by teachers and lecturers to organise school trips and college tours since 1982, to destinations all around the world - we don’t just do Europe! At EST, we are passionate about broadening students’ horizons and our exciting range of school tours and immersive LIVE conference events allow young people to not only discover more about their subjects, but also the wider world and their own potential.

Our school trips to France are always a popular choice due to its proximity to the UK and diversity of learning and cultural experiences available.  Even closer to home, offering great value and a wide range of visits, are school trips to London. Take your students on a school trip to Spain and open their eyes to its colourful culture and mixture of stunning scenery and architectural gems. School trips to Italy offer art treasures and wonderous historical and geographical sites, whereas school trips to Germany manage to encapsulate all that is modern about Europe, whilst not forgetting its turbulent past. Finally, make your college or school trip extra special by taking your school trip to the United States of America! Big and bold, New York, Washington, San Francisco or LA offer the trip of a lifetime with exciting visits, shows, jaw-dropping skyscrapers and canyons.

Wherever your choice of destination, our knowledgeable and experienced team has travelled the world seeking out the essentials for your next trip and are keen to pass on their recommendations on the best options for your group. When you think school trips or educational tours, think EST!
