ED Professional Tour Directors
At the Teacher’s Side: Educational Destinations Superheroes
Educational Destinations' professional Tour Directors use their commitment and experience to ensure the teacher’s and the group’s trip are successful. Rest assured, if the unpredictable happens, your Tour Director will change into his/her ED Superhero outfit and find a solution!
Leading a Group Tour may not seem like rocket science to the casual observer. After all, you've loaded the coolers and suitcases and pets and kids in the car and taken the family on plenty of road trips, most of which weren't absolute disasters. However, handling the minute-to-minute coordination of travel arrangements for a group of 10 or more offers special challenges, requires experience and demands full-time attention.
Educational Destinations' Tour Directors have been carefully selected for their people and management skills. Much like a music director, a professional Tour Director works hard to make sure the group receives clear communication and stays on time, so it may enjoy all of the things promised by the trip. Although the Tour Director doesn't know who that river is named for or the kind of tree in that park, her or his primary job is to make sure the group receives everything to which it is entitled. Each ED Tour Director is empowered to do so. Doing so involves communication and re-communication with coach drivers, hotels, restaurants, attractions, tour guides, performance venues, other transportation providers, rental agencies and much more. In addition to this behind-the-scenes work, the Tour Director also mingles with the group, gauges its pulse, gives clear instructions, answers questions and provides needed assistance. All of which frees music directors and group leaders to enjoy the trip and perform their own tasks. After the group is bedded down for the night, your Educational Destinations Tour Director spends time filing that day's receipts and transactions and planning for tomorrow's activities.
Extensive “on-the-road” experience, attention to detail, and plenty of homework enable your Educational Destinations Tour Director to provide a smooth, enjoyable trip, full of the fun and features you joined the trip for in the first place.
