We pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding service for teachers and pupils. We believe that learning outside of the classroom is important, and taking students on great trips is the best way to be educated - whilst having fun at the same time. From the moment you begin to plan your trip with WST you're in safe hands. With over 300 years of combined experience, we deliver exactly what tour leaders want - trips that are dependable and come from a knowledgeable team. We focus on providing a small number of trips for specific subjects, rather than trying to cover a wide range of topics. This means that you will always deal with someone that knows the requirements for your subject area and can tailor a tour to suit you.
