Your Flight Arrangements
We use the scheduled services of airlines such as Virgin Atlantic, American Airlines or Delta Air Lines. Please see approximate timings below for flights from London (please note that these flight timings are purely for guidance). Flights are also available from regional airports at a supplement.
Outbound: Depart: London Heathrow 1200hrs, Arrive: Washington Dulles 1550hrs
Inbound: Depart: JFK 2000hrs, Arrive: London Heathrow 0755hrs (following day)
Please note that your inbound flight is overnight, departing during the evening and arriving back in the UK the following morning.
We offer a choice of hotel locations to ensure that you enjoy your stay in the accommodation best suited to your students’ itinerary plans and budget. In Washington our range includes hotels such as the Holiday Inn Central/White House in downtown Washington and the Capitol Skyline Hotel, south of the National Mall. In New York your group will stay in one of our carefully selected hotels in the areas of Midtown Manhattan or the Upper West Side. Our range includes properties such as the DoubleTree Times Square, The Row, Days Inn-Broadway, The Edison or similar. Accommodation in Brooklyn or New Jersey can be quoted for on request. All rooms at the hotels have two double beds, private bathrooms, colour television and telephone. Students are accommodated on the basis of four sharing a room. Teachers are accommodated either on the basis of two sharing a room or, for a supplement, in single rooms.
Accommodation is on a room only basis. As there are numerous places on hand to grab breakfast, a snack for lunch, or a meal for dinner, it is easy to make your own arrangements. If however, you prefer, your Study Experiences Tours Specialist can pre-book evening meals for your group to enjoy at a wide range of restaurants, such as Planet Hollywood, Buca di Beppo, Hard Rock Cafe or more traditional diners and sandwich shops.
Our prices are based on a minimum group size of 20 students.
Your Choice of Travel Dates
As our trips are available throughout the year, during term time and also during half terms and holidays, you are able to select travel dates that suit you and your students.
Our most popular travel periods for student groups are during the February and October half terms and the Easter holidays. Therefore should you be planning on travelling during these periods, we recommend that you contact us to plan your tour as early as possible to ensure we still have availability for your preferred travel dates.
Please note that during June and July, flight prices to both cities, in particular New York, are prohibitively high and therefore these periods are not recommended for travel for student groups.
Your Educational Visits & Attractions
To ensure that you make the most of your trip to Washington and New York your Tours Specialist can advise on how many nights to spend in each city, and is also able to recommend educational visits and activities to ensure your students get the most out of their time away.
