The word about town…


Just wanted to send an e-mail and say we all had great (as usual) SOT Tour!!  Our Tour Guide, and bus driver were both wonderful too.  Nice to have two such people to accompany us around Halifax and to all our events and activities.  Thanks for all your work and service on behalf of my Music students.  Hoping to make the Atlantic Festival of Music next year!

What an absolutely fantastic time my students and I had on our trip to PEI.  Because of our itinerary students were busy (and happy!) from the time they woke up to the time they went to bed.  One student even said to me, "I knew it would be fun, but I didn't think it would be THIS fun! All my chaperones agreed that they had never been on a more stress free and relaxing trip.  Thank you to everyone for such a well planned, educational, and fun itinerary. Looking forward to planning our next adventure through Schools Out Tours.

As a veteran of some 28 band trips, I can truly say that none have been as well organized and stress-free as the last half dozen that I have done with Schools Out Tours. Band Directors certainly have enough to worry about without the added pressure of coordinating the many logistics necessary to have a successful band trip. Schools Out Tours continues to provide incredible service to our groups at CBRH. I do not envision travelling without them again!

Traveling with School's Out Tours made our trip planning easy and remarkably stress-free. Ron and Mike were incredibly easy to work with and anxious to ensure the trip was a great experience for our students.

The tour company was amazing. They were always available for questions or concerns before, during and after the trip. We must give a major thanks to our fabulous tour guide, Joe Cormier!!!! All of us, staff, parents and students, LOVED him! He was knowledgeable, well-spoken, supportive, and always available for support!!! We can't say enough about him and hope that he continues with Schools Out Tours for music trips! We would definitely book again with Schools Out Tours for this and any other trips that we may take in the future!! Thanks!!

Once again it was an awesome trip and a great experience for our students.

I have had Schools Out Tours plan our band trips for many years. The staff are eager to provide a hassle free experience for students and band directors. Ron, Mike and Sue were always available to take my calls. Any little issues that came up on the trips were dealt with immediately and to my satisfaction. The itinerary was well planned and accommodations, meals and events were of the highest quality. Having used several other tour companies in the past, I can honestly say that the folks at Schools Out have always provided the best service right from the initial conversations through to the conclusion of our tours.

Schools Out Tours has organized yet another excellent trip for my junior high school band. This allows me to focus on the important stuff.. the music, while I can trust that SOT has planned the "fun stuff"!! We always have a great trip, learn a lot and come back better musicians.

Our PEI trip with Soundtrax and Halifax All City Jazz was a huge success, thanks to the exceptional planning and organization of Schools Out Tours.
