"I have thought about providing our students with a Washington, DC tour for many years. However, I was very concerned with the time commitment and support it would take to make a trip happen. From our first phone call, to your help with my Parent Night, handling all parent payments and finally running our tour I could not be happier. The NationsClassroom staff made my role so much simpler than I could have imagined. As a result, we had 160 students on our first tour that had a great experience. I am sure that the tour will now be a yearly highlight for our school. Thank you."

 

- Tom N., Social Studies Department Head, Connecticut

 

 

"Thank you for an amazing trip to Washington, DC. My friends and I had a great time. My favorite parts were the changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery and going up in the Washington Monument. This was my best trip by far and I have been on a lot."

 

- Sam D., Student, Wisconsin

 

 

"I have planned my Washington, DC and New York City tour with just about every student tour company that there is. Hands down, NationsClassroom is the best. Your staff really cares about doing things great and providing my kids with a great trip, year, after year. Every part of the process is done right-your company simply gets it."  

 

- Susan Q., History Teacher, Texas

 

"I just returned from an amazing experience with my daughter on her Washington, DC and East Coast school trip with NationsClassroom. I have to say I am very pleased and frankly quite surprised. Companies in other fields can take note of your attention to detail, dedication to providing great service and the passion of your employees. Our tour was very well thought out, the meals were better than I expected and the hotels were very nice. Our check in and check out were both very smooth. Most importantly, your Tour Guide was phenomenal. I don’t know how he was able to relate to everyone so well. He had the students really get involved in what they were seeing and didn’t just talk non-stop. Thank you for a wonderful lifelong memory."
