Travel is an amazing educational experience; one that gives all of us – young and old – the chance to experience a culture directly. To explore, to search, to question, to wonder…these are timeless experiences. Our school tours are a reflection of this spirit. Our goal is to challenge assumptions and encourage dialogue while supplementing what students have learned in the classroom, and it all starts from a discussion, rather than a pre-selected package of destinations.
The experience students want. The service teachers need. The most revolutionary way to get students to Japan.
How a PacSet School Tour Works
“Discussion” is where every school tour we run begins. All our school tours are built with the teachers and chaperones for the trip, so each tour is unique to your group. We’ll meet with you over the internet or in person to hammer out the details – and we’ll do our best to make sure any paperwork you’ll have to handle with your school district moves as smoothly as the tour itself.
Flexible Payment Options
And we certainly aren’t going to tell you you’re on your own when you’re trying to figure out how to make the journey affordable for your students. All our tours can be paid with a payment plan to split up payments and make them easier to manage for families.
Help Every Step of the Way
Get used to seeing us, because every school tour comes with two complimentary sessions with our staff and guides. Whether you’re in New York or Nebraska, we’ll travel to your school to hold an info session to introduce students and parents on the tour. Once all participants are confirmed, we’ll stop by to hold a pre-departure orientation that covers cultural tips, exchanging money, dietary restrictions, medications, packing for the tip, staying connected away from home, and much, much more.
Bring the Family Along…Kinda.
On tour, we set up communication tools that allow families back home to follow along, get updates from Japan, and see pics of what we’re up to. We know how important it is for families to feel connected, but we think it’s just as important for them to see the fun their support helped create.
Prepared For Your Peace of Mind
We review emergency protocol, trip preparation, and tour policies with students, parents, and chaperones thoroughly before and on the trip to ensure that we are prepared to respond in any given situation. Your trust will never be taken for granted.
It All Starts With a Call or E-mail.
We know a trip like this is a huge investment – so if you’re ready to make it a reality, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Before you know it, you’ll be on the plane!
