For many years GT Travel has been working very successfully with school groups, from various countries, providing all of their coaching (and guiding) needs whilst in Iceland. As our school group business expands we are now able to additionally offer:-
- Itinerary planning, detailed and tailor-made;
- All ground transportation, in our wide range of distinctive green coaches;
- Professional Courier and Guide provision, Icelandic and Geographic;
- Accommodation, at a wide range of standards, as you wish;
- An extensive range of Experiences/Activities/Options, always exciting, many new.
We are very able to develop geography tour itineraries that are bespoke to a group’s particular needs. Discussion with our knowledgeable GT Travel staff (and, if requested, with Ian – see below) allows for a very tailor-made tour, precisely suited to your educational aims, wished for Icelandic experiences and shaped to leave every participant with long, happy memories.
GT is hugely experienced in providing students and their teachers with a wealth of very relevant educational encounters, thus aiding the development of a host of memories that should last a lifetime.
In addition to our deep knowledge and experience of Iceland, GT Travel is extremely pleased to have the services of a UK Consultant Geographer, Ian K Hardie. Ian has been both a secondary school geography teacher for over 30 years (with 25 years as Head of Department) as well as having had the experience of working in Educational Tour Development and Provision for over 15 years.
Ian’s depth of knowledge and understanding of what is needed to provide the highest quality school geography tour (for both geographic and “insider local Icelandic” KU) is second to none. Ian is highly regarded in the UK geography world and, with our combined skills, GT travel can readily discuss your needs in order to develop a top rate, tailor-made geography tour for your group. Ian is also a frequent guide with many of our groups.
