thematic, or budgetary requirements

A World of

Difference

Many

Group Leaders

have learned

through experience

that there is a huge

disparity between

the tours and

services offered by

educational tour

operators.

Unique Educational & Cultural Inclusions

BENEFITS OF INDEPENDENT GROUP TRAVEL

We never combine groups! Many of the larger educational

tour operators combine groups to ensure they have full bus

loads, but combined groups rarely share the same goals. It is

only by traveling as an independent group that you can

ensure your cultural goals are attained and your group’s

standards of conduct are fully upheld.

BEST FLIGHTS ON GUARANTEED DATES

We guarantee your tour dates at the time of booking and aim to

provide a flight schedule 11 months prior to departure. We have

excellent relationships with the major carriers, including:

qAir France qBritish Airways qContinental qDelta

qAmerican qNorthwest qUnited qVirgin Atlantic

EFFICIENT ARRIVAL DAYS

On a Casterbridge Tour, arrival days are an important part of

your touring program. Because your Tour Manager will meet

your group at the airport:

• You will never wait at the airport for other groups to arrive

• There will be time to exchange money

• You will enjoy en-route sightseeing

EXPERTISE OF LOCAL SPECIALIST GUIDES

Casterbridge is truly dedicated to educational travel. Most of

our programs include local specialist-guided tours of major

attractions. These expert guides provide in-depth information

and enhance the educational nature of your visit. We also use

local guides for thematic days on tour and for special interest

walking tours.


to Enhance Your Overseas Experience

QUALITY ACCOMMODATIONS

We know that the quality of hotels is a major contributor to the

success of your tour, as well as an important part of your

cultural experience. As such, we aim to provide convenient,

centrally-located hotels that evoke local charm and character.

Our customary tourist and superior tourist class hotels always

have private bathrooms, are comfortable, and provide

excellent value.. You might be surprised to discover that other

operators add roll-away beds and camp beds to twin rooms, in

order to squeeze four or more participants in a room! We do

not consider this acceptable and all of our hotels use proper

beds with rooming on a twin, or occasionally a triple, basis.

Our Group Leaders consistently award our hotel choices high

ratings yet, we are continually evaluating and inspecting new

properties with your complete comfort and satisfaction as our goal.

AN EMPHASIS ON NATIVE CUISINE

Dining out and sampling local specialities should be one of

the cultural highlights of any tour abroad. We provide a taste

of the local cuisine.

Breakfast in the hotel is included daily, and dinners will either

be in the hotel or in local restaurants. The restaurants serve

authentic and traditional meals representing the country's

typical cuisine. Dinner will be a set menu, or you can select from

different choices of starter, main course, and dessert.

While, on most tours, lunches are at the expense of each

participant, this adds an element of flexibility to each day.

Your Tour Manager/Guide will be there to recommend local

cafés, restaurants, and popular bakeries.

T he

entire Casterbridge Philosophy is designed to give greater

peace of mind for administrators and group leaders, not simply

while on tour but also during pre-tour preparations. The fine print in the

literature of many tour operators all too often conceals numerous

contingencies of which a Group Leader may be unaware at time of

booking. Please review the chart below to see how we compare.
