Below is a sample itinerary, all our tours and itineraries are curated to your specific group requirements.

Brussels, the capital city of Belgium and the first city of Europe. This beautiful city is an obvious choice for politics, business and history students alike. It presents students with an intensely cosmopolitan atmosphere in which the many facets of European identity come to life. At the heart of the city sits the impressive Grand’Place, the historic market square with its splendid guild houses and Gothic Town Hall, widely considered to be one of the most beautiful town squares in Europe. And not forgetting the food! Fine chocolates and waffles will tantalize the sweet tooth but don’t forget that Belgians actually invented the French Fry!

Bruges, ‘the Venice of the North’ is a truly breath taking destination for school trips, and is the best preserved mediaeval city in Belgium. This makes it the ideal choice for those studying the history of the middle ages, as well as those with a focus on art and architecture.
