The Best School Field Trip

"Pilot Educational Tours was instrumental in helping to plan our first ever grade-level trip to the Coast. Mr. Smith offered multiple suggestions and handouts for fund-raising, possible itineraries, sample letters to parents, and any other items we needed or may have forgotten as we planned. We were particularly impressed with his organization and attention to details that made our trip run so smoothly. He has a true understanding of both students and chaperones needs and interests as well as knowledge of the academic standards related to field trips at various grade levels. Students, teachers, and parents all agreed that this coastal trip planned by Pilot Educational Tours was by far the best school field trip they have ever experienced."

The Pilot Educational Tours Promise -- We will meet or beat anyone on price. We will beat everyone on service.

Help During Tough Times

"I cannot say enough good things about Pilot Educational Tours. On our most recent sophomore class trip to Washington, DC (our third trip with Pilot Tours), one of our students was injured. Our tour director, Beverly, was wonderful! She made arrangements for a cab to take me, my husband, and the injured student to Prince George Hospital, and she went with us! This was late on our first night of the trip. Beverly remained at the hosptial with us, even though I tried to get her to go back to the hotel to get some sleep. She would not abandon us! Fortunately, the student had only a minor injury, and we arrived back at the hotel at 3 in the morning. No one would have ever guessed that Beverly had had so little sleep! For our tours that day she was energetic, enthusiastic, and passionate about showing us Washington, DC. I will never use another tour company for our annual Washington, DC trip."

Works Around Our Schedule

"We have used Pilot Educational Tours for the past 6-8 years for our annual fifth grade trip to Washington, DC. We have been so pleased with the willingness of Pilot Educational Tours to work around our school schedule and to accomodate the needs of our students. Doug Smith customizes a trip for our school and always has fresh and inovative ideas for our trip. Beverly is the best tour escort a group could want. Her knowledge of Washington, DC helps make our trip memorial for our students and parents."

Exceptional Service and Flexibility

"We have used Pilot Tours on several occasions for our National Junior Honor Society trips. Kelly and her staff have done an exceptional job of talking with us about our possible destinations and have allowed us to pick and choose activities that would be most beneficial and enjoyable to our students. From Atlanta to Charleston, Philadelphia to Hershey, Pilot Tours has plenty of locations that your students will not only learn from, but will have fun while learning. We normally contact Kelly the week after we return to start planning the next year's trip."

"Johnny On the Spot"

"I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the professional service we have received from Pilot Educational Tours over the past five years. Doug Smith has given us outstanding service in all areas. He has proven his dedication to his clientele by providing friendly and cooperative service. He has arranged everything for our tours and been "Johnny on the spot" during the times that changes had to be made because of inclement weather or any other unforeseen occurrences. He is knowledgeable about the area of Washington, D. C. and is always willing to provide educational packets for our students. He is truly concerned about us and goes beyond the call of duty to make our trip successful."

A Worry-Free Field Trip

Pilot Educational Tours is fantastic. Doug is extremely organized and professional and makes everything run smoothly. He helped us to figure out what activities were most important to us and our students and then arranged everything so that we could get the most out of our money and time. I felt totally at ease throughout the trip. I did not worry that there would be any problems and I was right. As a new teacher, it was my first overnight field trip but it was outstanding - I had a blast and so did our students and parents. I highly recommend them to anyone!

Thanks from Jefferson Elementary

"We use Pilot Educational Tours every year to plan and coordinate our 5th grade Washington, DC field trip. Pilot is the most friendly, accommodating and helpful tour company we have ever used. They take the time to carefully plan your trip and take into account the age, educational, and "fun" level of all attractions. Our students love this trip and it is one they remember for many years. When you work with Pilot, you become part of the family. The bus drivers, tour guides, and directors are fantastic and we have grown to love them all."

-Joy Hesman 5th Grade Teacher, Jefferson Elementary

"We have used Pilot Educational Tours several years now, and have absolutely LOVED the individualized program Doug has created for us. We always see the highlights of DC and have no worries! Scheduling is smooth, planned out to avoid traffic and any "heavy visitation" times, and ALL details are worked through prior to our arrival. Doug Smith and his staff have taken ALL the worries out of traveling with 100 5th grade students! Thanks to Pilot Educational Tours our 5th graders get a true glimpse of our nation's capital without headaches! Thanks, Doug."
