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.
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 prebook evening meals for your group to enjoy at a wide range of restaurants, such as Planet Hollywood, Buca di Beppo or more traditional New York diners.
Our prices are based on a minimum group size of 20 students.
Your Choice of Travel Dates
As our New York 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 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 New York your Tours Specialist is able to arrange a wide choice of educational visits, activities and dining options. Full details of everything you might wish to see and do are available in our New York ‘Educational Visits and Attractions Guide’.
