We are also proud to have delivered tours and excursions for the following Bournemouth Based Language Schools:


Discover Dorset have organised some great trips for our students. They are always happy to listen to our ideas about places to visit, but never short of their own suggestions about how to create a great programme of excursions. We get great feedback from the students and I know from experience how knowledgeable and enthusiastic their tour guides are, particularly about the local area. They give the kind of guided tours that I just wouldn’t have the knowledge or experience to offer. I don’t ever feel the need to send any staff members to accompany the trips as I’m completely confident that the students will be well looked after and get good value for money.
