Tim Schmidt – Ocala, Florida

I am a school administrator and we have used Educational Tours each spring since 2013 to take our 8th graders to Washington. I am not exaggerating when I say we have had nothing but great experiences with them. The owner of the company is amazing and takes personal responsibility for making sure our trip is amazing every year. If a museum is closed (which sometimes happens without any warning), the company doesn’t just say “”too bad””…they find something even better for us to do at their expense. They make it clear that safety is the top priority, and it is clear that it isn’t just a professional commitment from them…they genuinely care about our students just as we do. What also impresses me each year is how they always know how to get the best tour guides who know how to hold the attention of 8th graders, even while they’re educating them about the battlefield or museum or historical site we are visiting. Again, I can’t say enough great things about this company. They have great pride.
