Leanne was amazing from beginning to end, helpful to the end with suggestions and info, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Tiverton High School, Iceland, July 2022

It is just so reassuring to know that we have the backing of the company and I have nothing but thanks for both Leanne and Christie for your reassurance during our long delay.
Upper Wharfedale School, Iceland, February 2022

Thank you for all your assistance in organising the trip, we are very pleased it can go ahead and I appreciate this would not have been possible without your help!
Bedlington Academy, travelling to Iceland, March 2023

Kerrie was amazing – nothing was too much trouble for her and she really stepped in to resolve issues as they arose. Paperwork was very comprehensive, easy to follow and provided in advance. She was always calm and kept in regular contact, updating and reassuring me.
Frogmore Community College, Bay of Naples

It was a pleasure to deal with WST from start to finish. They really exceeded our expectations and at times went above and beyond the call for us – very much appreciated. Everything was simple, professional and communicated well. This was the first time my colleague and I took a trip abroad and WST made it as stress-free as it could have been. We have already been recommending WST to others. Thank you very much.
The Heritage School, Bay of Naples

Kerrie was brilliant throughout the whole process as was Shirley. I cannot speak highly enough of them. They were informative, knowledgeable in all aspects of what they do.
St John Bosco, Bay of Naples

The trip was very well organised and planned. Good contact from local travel company, guides and coaches helped the trip run smoothly.
Ryburn Valley High School, Bay of Naples

Kerrie was amazing! I took over the trip from a colleague who left the school, but with Kerrie’s patient help, it all ran smoothly and she really helped. This was the easiest and most rewarding trip that I have done. Feedback from staff and students has been phenomenal. Students made memories which will stay with them forever… Unforgettable!
Ashfield School, Opal Coast

Another excellent trip to the Bay of Naples – thanks WST! The students had an amazing time. Everything ran smoothly and we loved using the Vamoos app. A particular thanks to Kerrie for all of her help in organising the trip for us again.
Penryn College, Bay of Naples

The security that come with the confidence that WST will be there to help when you require them (the 24hr assistance team) reduces the stress and difficulties in planning trips which could easily take over your life if you had to do it all yourself.
Inverakmond CHS, Rome & Sorrento

I really did feel rejuvenated. The delight from the kids in the group was infectious. Out of all the trips I have done to Iceland I felt I was listened to throughout and the itinerary was exactly my original wish list. So much geography and an incredible experience. Thank you so much Leanne. You will probably never really know how much this trip meant. Very best wishes to you!
Wreake Valley Academy

I feel as though without the effort and commitment shown by the wst travel team I would never have been able to do this trip which I have wanted to do since starting teaching 8 years ago. Jenny and Julie were fantastic in assisting me to run what can only be described as an amazing trip.
St Edmund Arrowsmith

I just wanted to email you personally and directly say thank you to you and the whole of your team for all your efficiency and effort. The trip went very well, students loved it and there isn't a day when one of the students asks me if I will take them again next year!
Hipperholme and Lighcliffe High School

I am so impressed with your fantastic help and support as well as the efficiency of arranging everything. I feel in very safe hands and appreciate the patience and understanding you show when plans change.
Clayesmore Preparatory School

Leanne went out of her way to help, always got back to me very quickly.
Spalding High School, Iceland

An excellent trip which was thoroughly enjoyed by all students. The range of places visited was great and al students came back buzzing about what they had seen. Thank you, we will definitely be looking to book again.
Sirius Academy, Iceland

Most helpful, really quick at dealing with queries, very supportive with paperwork, very understanding/patient with changes made. Thanks for the experience.

WST rep who met us on our way out at Manchester was fantastic. The guide in Iceland could not have done a better job. He was very knowledgeable and very good with pupils.
St Thomas More Buxton, Iceland

Have to say trip was excellent. Students & staff loved it. Hotel was perfect for school group with meeting room, pool & food. Local guide was everything you would wish.Thanks for all your support in helping to organise this amazing trip. Definitely keen to either return next year or possibly consider one of your other Geography trips.
St Thomas More Roman Catholic Academy

As already stated everyone I dealt with was superb. Nothing was too much trouble. All questions were answered quickly and efficiently. I was made to feel that our school trip really mattered to them.
Stonelaw High School

The tour was excellent and the WST staff were very helpful.
Thomas Tallis, Iceland

Hershey was an excellent guide with extensive local knowledge.
Thomas Tallis, Iceland

The team at WST were incredibly accommodating, especially as I have not run an international residential before. They were helpful and their information and recommendations were excellent. Thank you for a brilliant trip!!!
Elton High School, Iceland

Kerrie was really helpful at sorting out issues in a very timely way. That was incredibly helpful given that we were organising the trip quite late in the day.
Sir Roger Manwood's School, Bay of Naples

Kerrie was outstanding! Whenever we required any information the team would be on hand to support our needs. When Kerrie was unavailable there would always be someone on hand to provide us with support and offer advice which was very reassuring.
Newtown High School, Bay of Naples

Leanne was always quick to reply and able to deal with my many questions.
Musselburgh Grammar School, Iceland

Elle did a fantastic job and thanks for the smoothness of the organisation and the logistics and timings of the tour worked perfectly.
Carr Manor Community School, London

A great team that organises excellent educational visits at very competitive prices.
The Vale Academy, Bay of Naples

Leanne was always available to support during the whole process and it was good knowing that she was at the end of the phone. Leanne guided me through the whole process and built the itinerary around my requirements. She was also very patient whilst waiting for some documentation to come through! It has been such a positive experience from start to finish and the trip went well beyond all our expectations. Thank you WST (especially Leanne Coy) for making 29 people extremely happy and giving them an experience of a lifetime!
St Cuthbert Mayne School, Iceland

The students had the time of their lives and it really is a trip that they'll remember for the rest of their lives. The Secret Lagoon was the best part of the trip for students and staff alike. Going in February, despite it being a tad chilly, really helped get to grips with the land of Fire and Ice.
Thomas Cowley High School, Iceland

I am greatly impressed with the support and guidance offered by WST. It made my first international school trip a real success.
Plantsbrook School, Iceland

I have worked with Elleanor for two years on two London residential visits and Elleanor is always able to help and sort any issues that arise or able to seek out new requests/activities that may be suggested. Elleanor is very friendly and I would like to thank Elleanor for arranging the activities of the visit and ensuring another successful trip occurred for our pupils.
Carr Manor Community School

WST offered us an exceptional and professional service that more than fulfilled our expectations. Before leaving Lanzarote, we asked all of our 31 students to evaluate the trip. Their comments confirmed that this trip was a success. We asked them - ‘Was is what you excpected' - and the typical answer was - ‘No, it was better!'. We had no negative comments about the overall package. We are confident that the students will comment positively to other students on their return. The advertised objective of this trip was 'To explore the natural wonder, marine ecosystem, geology, volcanology, ecology and human existence through tourism and agriculture on a Canary Island shaped by tectonic forces.' We met our goals.
Strathearn School, Lanzarote
