Educational Group Travel

Classroom lessons brought to life

As an educator, you work hard to show your students the world from the four walls of your classroom. But what if the walls weren’t there? When your students step into the very lessons you’ve shared with them, something incredible happens. Those lessons become imprinted on their hearts and minds, sealed with the memories they’ll carry with them forever.

It’s been our privilege to help educators share the world with their students for nearly 40 years.

Our expert travel consultants and tour directors take all the guesswork out of exploring top destinations, giving you the opportunity to enjoy learning alongside your students.

Trips as unique as you are

Other companies often offer “travel by template” or the same tour for every group. That’s never been our style. We customize each and every travel experience to the group we’re working with, listening to every detail and reflecting them in your personalized itinerary. We’ve been building relationships with hotels, restaurants, tours and attractions for decades, so we have access to exceptional experiences at the best prices. And if there’s something you want to try that we’ve never done before, we’re thrilled to research it so you don’t have to.

BRT Travel Tools

Technology at your fingertips

We make technology work for us, not the other way around. Our Individual Payment System (or IPS for short) takes the burden of tracking payments off your plate. And our BRT Moments that Matter app gives you a way to privately share trip photos with friends and family at home.

Where to?

We’ve traveled the world with educators and their students, so there’s no destination too close or too far for us to get excited about. Here are some student favorites:

Washington, D.C.

Our nation’s capitol is a perennial favorite with no shortage of educational experiences for students to immerse themselves in. Museums, historic monuments and tours are waiting for you to explore.


  • National Mall
  • Lincoln Memorial
  • Smithsonian Museums
  • United States Capitol Buildings

New York City

Bright lights, big city – every student remembers her first trip to The Big Apple. Arts, culture and history are around every corner, as well as delicious food and extraordinary fun.


  • Rockefeller Center
  • Times Square
  • Broadway
  • 9/11 Memorial and Museum


Walk the streets and Boston and experience the story of our nation’s birth. While known for endless historical landmarks and attractions, Boston is also alive with culture, renowned universities and Insta-worthy vistas.

  • The Freedom Trail
  • Fenway Park
  • New England Aquarium



We may be biased, but our hometown is one of our favorite places to share with students. Museums, Broadway-caliber performances and deep-dish pizza are ready when you are.


  • Millenium Park
  • Cloud Gate (The Bean)
  • Navy Pier
  • Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Anywhere, Everywhere

Wherever you are in the country, there are fantastic student-approved destinations within reach. Exploring your state’s capitol is always a great place to start, though there is so much to see beyond state lines as well.

Bottom line:

There’s no trip to close or too far, no group too large or too small that we can’t make magic for. Let’s start the conversation and explore the possibilities together.

The personal touches that BRT provides. Your company gets to know the people they work with. I have never felt like a "number" with BRT.

Leslie Schmidt
Columbia Central Junior High School
Class Trip, DC Tour


I appreciated the flexibility Bob Rogers showed us with the billing and various payments we had to make. We thought we were adding more and ended up not but you were great about giving us extra time to work out what we needed to on our end.

Loraine Wistrom
Plum Grove Junior High School
Band, Chicago Tour


BRT is always on top of all details. Even when something has slipped through the cracks, changed, or something unexpected comes up, BRT is flexible enough to make the changes needed to make everything right. We have always been so well taken care of and the personal attention is what makes your company special.

This was my 5th trip with Bob Rogers, and I appreciate the professionalism and also the willingness to work with me and my students to make each trip the very best it can be.

Trey Jacobs

You make the process so easy - step-by-step of what needs to be done, guidance along the way, available (and quick) to respond to questions and making me feel like me and my students are your priority.

Beth Vaughn
Bowling Green High School
Choir, New York City Tour


The quality of service that you provided us with was second to none. The organization and communication were exceptional and we always felt we were in “the loop” on things both before and during the trip.

Bob Mecozzi
Amos Alonzo Stagg High School
Band, Orlando Tour


BRT hands down has been the absolute best travel company I have worked with in my 18 years in education. My interactions with BRT have always been so much more than just traveling from one destination to another...the focus has always been on people and providing them with experiences of a lifetime.

Barry Houser
University of Illinois
Band, Ireland Tour


From the scheduling, to planning, to overseeing, to leading, to customer service, everyone involved was courteous, prompt, and hospitable. Everyone did their jobs well and turned the trip experience into something better than we had anticipated.

David Dvorak

Very Organized - even when problems develop. We've gone on enough trips with Bob Rogers to know how BRT operates - always first class, always prepared.

Joe Carl

The whole BRT team was extremely attentive, accommodating and reliable. Every detail was attended to and my stress level the entire trip was at an all-time low.
