Our range of school tour guides

Our guided study tours are hugely popular and offer a multitude of benefits to groups, from incomparable destination knowledge to allowing you the time and opportunity for one-to-one teaching. 

We offer a range of school trip guides who can be of assistance at the various stages of your tour, so whether you’d rather have a guide to help you get more out of specific visits, or if you’d like to be accompanied from the moment you leave Ireland to arriving back home again, we have a variety of options to suit you. 

Local Guides

Our local guides are the ideal option for groups that would prefer to be guided around specific sites. With excellent local and cultural knowledge, your guide will provide useful information at each site showcasing many hidden gems and sharing lesser-known facts – adding a depth of local knowledge to key visits on your school tour. 

Tour Escorts

If you’d like to be accompanied throughout your study tour, then our Tour Escort option would be the best choice for you.

They’ll lead your group enabling you to deliver individual learning for the entire time you’re away.
