Super Tours

Super Tours


Quite often there is intense competition within schools for the ‘tour slots’ and the solution in the past has been ‘the loudest voice gets the tour’ or schools adopt a rotation system which could mean that it might be close on 8-10 years to go through the complete rotation. Our solution is to offer a new range of "Super Tours" that include up to 3 or 4 different strands all in one tour e.g. history / cultural + business studies + consumer studies + maths/science; or even sport + history / cultural + business studies. These Super Tours generally visit 2-3 cities over a period of 10-12 nights on the ground.

Below is an example 2018 Super Tour itinerary. Three strands, three cities, 11 nights. Starting date is flexible.

Sample itinerary for 2018 Super tour

Below is an example of a bespoke itinerary for a Business Studies, Consumer Studies, Cultural / History Enrichment Tour, for 14 days / 11 nights, visiting Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai .

The itinerary is entirely flexible and days can be reordered in any sequence to suit your desired program.  Each of the strands (cultural, business studies, consumer studies) needs to be minimum 12 students and 1 staff to enable us to run a separate schedule for each individual strand. If the numbers are not enough, we will discuss with you a way of combining all strands into one enrichment group and adjust the schedule to suit.  Parents and supports are most welcome to participate in the adventure and typically they choose to do all the activities in the group's itinerary.
