Testimonials

We strongly believe that no other UK Schools’ Tours Operator meets The Anglia Standard but you don’t have to take our word for it:

By far the best guide ever! He was entertaining, engaging and knowledgeable. He got on so well with our staff and students that he really was one of us.

East Bergholt High School

A huge thank you to you and the team for organising such a fantastic trip. You made the process very easy with your excellent organisation.

St Benedict’s Catholic School Bury St Edmunds

Our guide was excellent. He was friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and had just the right manner with the pupils. So much better than NST who I used at my previous school

St Mary’s School, Gerrards Cross

Thank you to all at Anglia Tours for helping my students to have such a profound and educational experience in Krakow this weekend.

IES Breckland

This was the first trip that I had made to Berlin with guides and it does make an immense difference to be able to call on their expertise in terms of practical arrangements, quite apart from the knowledge they communicate to the girls. I really appreciated their help. The most important thing is that the girls got a great deal from the trip as is evident from their comments on the return journey and since the beginning of this term.

Cheltenham Ladies College

I just have to say that I don’t think that the girls have ever enjoyed a school trip so much. They were so enthusiastic and had obviously found the whole experience incredibly moving….Thank you for all your hard work!

Parent of pupil at Sydenham High School for Girls

The students were engaged and thrilled from start to finish and certainly left the trip with a new found understanding of the horrors that occurred in the Holocaust. My principal is so impressed I will be looking to organise this tour annually, and will be in touch in September about setting up our next trip! I would particularly like to mention Richard Burgess our tour guide. He managed to inspire the students immensely and I would very much like to request him again.

IES Breckland

I have been on the battlefields 12 times now. And this was the best ever.

Hampshire Collegiate School

Just returned from a "Jack the Ripper" tour of Whitechapel with a coach load of Year 9 students. They were exhausted but full of excitement at having been to the various destinations. They loved Simon Gregor because of his knowledge and delivery. …. he re-energised several students who were flagging at the end of a busy academic year. Many, many thanks.

Maplesden Noakes School

AMAZING! Can’t fault it! BEST tour ever.

Moon Hall School

The students had an amazing time and did not stop telling us how much they loved it. They also could not stop praising Rick and Andy, and I have to say that I totally agree, they were fantastic.

St Peter’s Collegiate

Content was spot on – casualty clearing was great.

Shipston High School

[The guide] had a huge impact on what the students got out of it, they were invaluable. He had them eating out of his hand! She couldn’t praise him highly enough. He knew exactly how to pitch it at the right level to the students and made it so poignant at times.

Cardinal Newman Catholic School

I have already booked for next year & have recommended you to another school.

St Columba’s College

The girls could not get over just how knowledgeable and eloquent he (the guide) is

Kings High School

I just wanted to write and thank all of you very much for giving Hester such a wonderful opportunity in Berlin. She really loved the trip – and it sounded as if overall she managed its demands as well as possible. I very much appreciate the fact that you were all flexible and allowed her accommodations for the things she couldn’t manage (like eating dinner in the restaurant). It just helps so much when the things that aren’t imperative aren’t made compulsory as it gives her time to recoup energies a little. She also loved Sam, the guide you had – so do please pass on my thanks to him as he succeeded in making the trip both fun and educational. Both the pre-tour support and on tour experience both excellent!

Colston's Girls' School

[Our guide] was excellent and fit well with our students. I will be requesting her in the future.

Trinity School (Lewisham)

My whole lesson today was based on ideas and information gained on the Berlin trip. This has really taken their analysis of the play to a higher level.

Colston's Girls' School

My colleagues couldn’t believe how fantastic it is having a guide. It relieves us of all stress.

St George’s School

It was a photo moment watching the looks of absolute delight on their faces when the show and tell session took place.

Cardinal Newman Catholic School

Once again, thank you for all your help and please pass my thanks on to Brendan and Andy. Their knowledge and enthusiasm really makes the trip come alive for the students.

St Wilfrid's Catholic School, Crawley

Lots of the boys told me it was their best trip ever.

Keble Prep School

Everything on the itinerary went according to plan and [our guide] Rob did a fantastic job as ever at each of our stops. It really was an excellent trip.

Dubai College

I could not have coped with the level of admin on top of my teaching workload without her.

Haringey 6th Form College

For me the trip is stressful (ensuring students are behaving/have everything etc ) but as soon as I see (our guide) he takes control and allows me and the other staff to relax and enjoy the tour.

Woodbridge School

I had an absolutely fabulous time, it was everything I thought it would be and much more.

Rodborough School

Fantastic – extremely knowledgeable, very engaging and the students responded well to him. Will definitely request him again.

He thoroughly enjoyed the trip…and hasn't stopped talking about it. We feel it was an amazing experience for [him] so thank you to everyone for making it such a fantastic trip.

parents of a pupil of Rodborough School.

Excellent itinerary - not sure we could have packed more in.

Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School

Excellent service as always from the team at Anglia.

Excellent level of service provided - prompt responses to my queries.

Cove School

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the day ….It was very closely matched to our specification which meant our pupils were able to fully engage with the material.

John Warner School

Excellent as always.

Kings High School Warwick

Why would we travel with anyone else when you dealt with this situation (short notice strike in Berlin) so effectively and without any fuss or bother whatsoever.

Misbourne School

A really superb trip that was organised quickly and efficiently. Can’t wait till next time!

Hedingham School

My colleagues, our students, and I agreed – the guides MADE this trip for us. Without their expertise we would have come away with only a surface understanding.

International School of Düsseldorf

One has only to read the many glowing commendations from teachers, parents and students themselves of their Anglia tour. The pupils return from their visit feeling inspired, stimulated and that history has been brought to life, that it was thought-provoking. What more can a student, history teacher or parent require from a battlefield experience? As the WW1 cartoonist Bruce Bairnsfather almost said, ‘If you knows of a better tour - go on it’

Tonie and Valmai Holt – authors of the best-selling ‘Major and Mrs Holt’s Battlefield Guidebooks’

Superb professional service yet perfectly pitched for year 10 students.

Roundhay School Technology & Language College

Everything was simply perfect – brilliant organisation from the start, outstandingly inspirational guides, friendly and fun driver, exactly the right amount of time spent at each cemetery, super meal and hotel...and perfect weather. Wonderful mixture of humour, seriousness, sadness brought the experience of the past into reality.

Royal Latin School

It is the professionalism of Anglia and the brilliance of your guides which is so important.

St Swithun’s School

When we got back to the school, all the parents had heard the message from them that they had had 'the best time ever'.

Sherfield School

Thank you for the best time of my life.

Pupil at Queen Victoria School, Dunblane, Perthshire

The whole trip was organised so that the stress was taken out of it. Thank you very much.

Farringdon Community College

Under very difficult conditions, we particularly wanted to thank you, the other teachers and the coach guides and drivers for the way everyone reacted to the Calais situation, and the way that alternative accommodation was found so effectively and promptly at Albert. I am sure this added to their sense of adventure and will be something they will remember fondly, rather than something which could have spoiled the trip.

Parent of pupil at Stamford High School

Just wanted to thank you for the Berlin trip. Not only did our son lap up the historical side (he said their guide was excellent) but he's fallen head over heels in love with the place.

Parent of pupil at the Royal Hospital School

I cannot thank the company enough for making this such a wonderful experience for all involved.

Hobart High School

I would not hesitate to recommend Anglia Tours.

Madeley High School

From the start, as usual, the trip was fantastically well organised including the last minute change due to the chaos in Calais.

Ormiston Chadwick Academy

If ever there was proof that it pays to be looked after by a full team at home & abroad, rather than the DIY of t’internet (as they say up North) then this was clearly it. Very well done and many thanks for grabbing victory from the jaws of potential defeat.

Member or Yorks and Lancs

Thank you for organising such a wonderful trip to the battlefields. I found it truly inspirational and moving.

Student at Lady Eleanor Holles School

Dealt with lots of last minute issues professionally and without any fuss.

Tormead School

He is a walking A-Z of Berlin and has an encyclopaedic historical knowledge – a true professional.

He is the best guide I've ever had for anything I've ever been to.
