Clients across the world hire Educational Tours, Inc. to plan and manage their student trips. Here's what they have to say about us.

“I want to know that there are real, genuine people who are willing to help me create a great experience for my students. ETI gets that and they deliver each and every time!”

Nathan W., Band, Illinois

“I was apprehensive to travel with my students at first because I was afraid of the things that could go wrong, and was worried about the amount of work and responsibility it would put on me. But from our very first trip, ETI was a huge help in planning our trip’s itinerary and removing excess stress from the process.”

Jennifer P., Orchestra, Michigan

“Our high school band and choir have been part of the ETI family for 16 years! We cannot tell you how much this company has bent over backwards for our small program. Every person I have worked with over the years have been very happy, helpful people who always make me feel comfortable in any stressful planning situation. They’ve built incredible itineraries for all of our trips and even took our suggestions and added them to our trip with no hesitation. To even look at another travel company would be a sin! This outstanding company will be booking our trips for many more years to come! Thank you for all the past years and the years to come!”

Melissa H. & Betsy F., Band & Choir, Indiana

“It’s difficult to find words to describe my respect for ETI. It is quite obvious, throughout the entire trip process (planning, billing, tour guide, etc.), that getting my economically disadvantaged students to a great location, doing great things at the best possible price is ETI’s top priority. In 26 years of teaching, I've never seen or heard of a company that comes close—no exaggeration. They care that much and are that good.”

Scott M., Band, Michigan

“The trip was truly phenomenal, from start to finish! I thought everything went exceptionally well and the planning was top notch, as always! My students LOVED the entire experience! About a third of them had never left the tri-state area and a little over a third of them had never flown on an airplane before. This was an experience so many of them will never forget, nor will I! I am just so thankful for ETI and what they are able to do to allow us to create these life-long memories. So many of my students commented that Monday was the absolute BEST day! It featured gators in the morning, shopping, a terrific performance at the WWII Museum, and an amazing steamboat tour on the Mississippi with live jazz and perhaps one of the best meals I have ever had on any of the band choir trips I have taken. Many of my students said the food was some of the best they have ever had. We had a FANTASTIC trip!”

Joshua S., Band &. Choir, Michigan

“Educational Tours, Inc. makes you feel like you are their only customer. Tracey is a perfect example of the highly professional staff that bend over backwards to get a trip exactly the way you want it. ETI will suggest an itinerary, but they never force a schedule on you. Having that kind of flexibility for booking events for the trip is essential to keeping a trip fresh.”

Jason S., Band, Michigan

“Kim and the staff at ETI helped me with every aspect of my trip planning. They are knowledgeable, accommodating and enthusiastic partners in making your trip a success! I just finished my trip and I'm already talking with them about our next big adventure!”

Melissa B., Choir, Missouri

“I have approval to do another trip again in the future and I plan on using ETI once again when I do. Everybody that was on the trip last year agrees that it was a very smooth trip. So, why mess with success?”

Jon M., Arkansas

“ETI is an amazing tour company that truly cares about your group’s needs. They will do everything they can to give your students an amazing experience. I highly recommend them for your next tour!”

Dave K., Band, Michigan

“Educational Tours, Inc. never fails to provide timely, accurate and dedicated service to its groups. During our trip (the first since we had to cancel a trip during the COVID lockdown), there were a few obstacles that arose unexpectedly. Each one was handled with patience and diligence until it was resolved to our satisfaction.”

Matt S., Marching Band & Choir, Ohio

“Our Music Department had a wonderful trip. We saw a ton of amazing sights and prime destinations. Our short time was very well managed with the time allotted at each attraction. Our tour guide Donna was very informative, organized and helpful. As a chaperone, I very much appreciated how the itinerary was planned out.”

Erika S., Concert Band & Choir, Wisconsin

“You’ve got a good old-fashioned customer service policy and try your very best to help customers have a successful tour. Your entire crew did an outstanding job.”

Jessie R., Choir, Kansas

“We had a fantastic trip of a lifetime. It was done with such ease, from the booking to the trip home. The accommodations were lovely, the food excellent and the tours fabulous. The group of fellow travelers were so friendly. Loved our guides, too. I highly recommend!”
