As our touring season draws to a close, I want to take this opportunity to thank the many schools and groups that have used our services to plan their respective trips. There are many choices out there when it comes to student travel. The first and perhaps the most important decision our teacher sponsors make is if they want to sponsor a student trip. While we have educators who are brand new in taking on this responsibility, we also have a number of teachers who year after year continue to sponsor student travel for their kids. Whether a first year teach or a veteran educator, our sponsors have one thing in common: They strongly believe that travel educates and elevates the level of thinking in their students.
Another critical choice educators make after they have reached the decision to sponsor a student trip, is whether or not to use a professional company to plan their trip. And if they decide to use a company, then they must decide which one to choose. We are pleased and honored that so many of you have chosen to use our services. We believe that our firm commitment to personal service has led to our growth over the years. While we market our tours a bit differently than when the company was founded almost 30 years ago, we still believe that in the end nothing tops word of mouth advertising. Educators endorsing our company to each other is a wonderful compliment and one that we do not take likely. Thank you so very much for recommending us to your fellow professionals.
It has been our pleasure to serve as your tour planner. We hope you have a great summer.
