What will students see and do?
Rondo Travel is a tour operator that organises school trips and activities across the UK, Europe and worldwide for primary and secondary students. Music tours, overseas residentials, battlefield visits, museum excursions and more are all possible.
The list of potential destinations is a lengthy one, but options in the UK stretch from the Imperial War Museum and HMS Belfast in London, to the Scottish Parliament and Edinburgh Castle north of the border.
Many school groups visit popular cultural sites such as the Eden Project, or areas of natural beauty in locations including Wales or Yorkshire.
For those looking further afield, there is the potential for art tours to Florence, Madrid or Berlin; cultural tours in Gdańsk or Cantabria; or a fashion tour of Paris.
And as well as educational excursions, Rondo Travel arranges sports tours for school teams for youth football, hockey, netball, rugby and cricket. The world is your oyster when it comes to choosing a suitable destination!
If you don’t find educational trips or excursions that suit your needs, you can make a bespoke enquiry. The Rondo Travel team will create a trip that fits your budget and requirements.
