VISIT CANADA Educational Tours

We planned our first educational field trip to Montréal for a group of teachers in the fall of 1985. What we didn’t know about students & teachers on educational tours, we made up for with hard work, passion for quality and knowledge of the destination. Today, we're proud to be a part of The ACIS Educational Tours family.

 

Testimonials

We have received hundreds if not thousands of compliments about our educational tour programs, our staff and our guides over the years, and we are pleased to share a small sample with you.

“The performance venues were out of this world! This was definitely the best concert tour I have ever taken the kids on... , and I’ve taken them to Italy.”

Newtown High School, Newtown, CT

“Having directed multiple choral performance tours to both Montréal and Québec City (in between various domestic and overseas destinations) over a period of a twenty-five years, with as many as 300 students, it is a pleasure to say that VISIT CANADA is the one company that not only handled the travel and logistical arrangements beautifully, but always insisted on designing a program that was both enjoyable and educationally sound for our students. The concert venues were spectacular, the side trips and activities unique and exciting and the accommodations clean, safe and easily monitored.”

Simsbury High School, Simsbury, CT

"Visit Canada created a fun, educational trip to Washington, DC for our students who were seeking to learn about the city in both its national and international context. Our small group of students enjoyed many memorable experiences including the train trip from Boston to Washington, our stay at a safe, comfortable downtown hotel, numerous excursions on the Metro to destinations such as the Department of State, the Newseum, the Holocaust Museum, the JFK Center, and many other points of interest and enjoyment on our itinerary. Walter, our tour guide, provided expertise in navigating the city and thought- provoking insight about the daily life and history of the Washington, DC. We could not have had a better experience!"

Brimmer & May School, Chestnut Hill (Boston), MA

I have to tell you that topping last year’s trip will be difficult! I have said many times in the past that Quebec City has been my favorite trip - but Boston definitely gives it competition!! What a great trip - which all that were involved agree with! Nothing but GREAT reviews about it.

Mount Clemens Junior Academy, Mount Clemens, MI

"Thank you for a wonderful, educational and fun adventure. It was such a treat for me to take the students to Québec and realize that their itineraries were truly jam packed. The parts of the trip that appealed the most to me were the Montmorency Falls, the Cathedrale Ste. Anne and the Treasure Hunt through old Québec. I thought these were extremely educational facets of the trip with a high interest element as well. I also loved the skit that we attended the first night that we were there. The two people acting were so funny and the fact that they incorporated so many of the audience members in sometimes very silly ways made the history of Québec come alive in a very real and memorable way. I will never forget one of my students being sent from the front to the back of the auditorium with an inflatable turtle around his tummy! Again, thank you for a most enjoyable stay in Québec. It was a delightful experience."

Octorara Middle School, Atglen, PA

"We enjoyed everything!! Visit Canada made the trip very easy to organize with all of the information they provided. The Group Leader's Manual that was provided helped to eliminate problems before they occurred."

Mount Clemens Junior Academy, Mount Clemens, MI

"Thank you for a wonderful, educational and fun adventure. It was such a treat for me to take the students to Québec and realize that their itineraries were truly jam packed. The parts of the trip that appealed the most to me were the Montmorency Falls, the Cathedrale Ste. Anne and the Treasure Hunt through old Québec. I thought these were extremely educational facets of the trip with a high interest element as well. I also loved the skit that we attended the first night that we were there. The two people acting were so funny and the fact that they incorporated so many of the audience members in sometimes very silly ways made the history of Québec come alive in a very real and memorable way. I will never forget one of my students being sent from the front to the back of the auditorium with an inflatable turtle around his tummy! Again, thank you for a most enjoyable stay in Québec. It was a delightful experience."

Lance Middle School, Kenosha, WI

"We enjoyed absolutely every part of this trip. This trip is geared toward the junior high/middle school student by its interactive content and variety of activities. I as a trip organizer, cannot tell you how pleased I am with Visit Canada and the Québec experience. I would not hesitate to organize another such trip, and possibly include Montréal. The chaperones were equally positive about the trip and are more than willing to do it again!"

Our group is already talking about another educational tour to either New York City or Toronto and we wouldn't even think of anybody better qualified than Visit Canada to plan that trip. I will certainly be passing along one of the best kept secrets in the state of Maine, and that there's a great tour company right next door in New Hampshire. Thank you for doing such a fantastic job and we look forward to our next tour together."

The kids really enjoyed themselves plus it gave a chance for the kids to vent extra energy in a controlled environment. That was a great idea! All the hands on stuff and interactive activities were excellent. We loved (the guides) Alain and Sylvia ... I don't think that we would have enjoyed ourselves nearly as much without their knowledge, expertise, and fabulous personalities."

Samson Beardy Memorial School, Muskrat Dam, ON

Merci pour vos efforts excellents. Le voyage a Québec etait magnifique! “What a wonderful weekend! Your planning and organizational skills are quite superb. Each day brought with it different engaging, educational and fun experiences. Students spoke French over three days in ways that were authentic and inspiring for them. Before our eyes, and confirmed by both of you, students who are often reserved and silent in class ordered a meal in French, bought a truffle or tee-shirt, or simply conversed with a French Canadian on a street corner. I overheard exchanges in French among student in their rooms - with no points or a teacher to notice or motivate them - the experience of speaking was its own reward.”

Pollard Middle School, Needham, MA

“Our whole educational tour of Québec City amazing. We especially liked the detailed planning and well- informed guide and the wholeness of the package ... a complete review of the grade 5 and 6 history curriculum. Accommodations were excellent.”

The kids had a fabulous time and are just bubbling with excitement”
