"Using Burke Educational Travel has allowed me to take one big project off of our very busy "to do" list every year!  From booking, reservations, educational planning, attractions, and any other trip "stuff" that you have to organize to make a successful student trip, working with BET has allowed me to hand all of those responsibilities off to someone else, and know without a doubt that everything would be taken care of professionally.  The only part that I've had to handle is loading the kids onto the bus for the start of each trip!  We have used them every year, and have never been anything but completely satisfied with our experience."

"As a new teacher, Burke Educational Travel has really made my life a WHOLE lot easier. Their prices are reasonable and well within the fundraising and financial limits of my students. The accommodations are always first rate and the staff (Office Workers, Bus Drivers,and Tour Directors) are a pleasure to work with. I have used Burke Educational Travel for my band trips for two years and for two years my trips have been smooth and hassle free. I highly recommend Burke Educational Travel to any educator looking to expand their classroom without all of the hassle that comes with trip planning. Burke Educational Travel will plan the trip and you can truly enjoy it. The thing I like most about Burke Educational Travel is that they plan educational adventures that still engage students and still allow them to have a good time."

"We will never even think about using another travel company!  Burke Educational Travel Company helped us plan our field study to Washington, D.C. from start to finish.  Year after year, I am amazed at the time and effort they put into making our 8th graders have a quality trip they will never forget. The customer service before, during, and after each trip is truly exemplary.  We appreciate always being treated like family!"

"We have used Burke Educational Travel for over 10 years now for our annual 8th grade trip to DC. They consistently provide the best quality service — taking care of every detail of our trip — as well as some of the best rates. Each year our students express how much they love the tour guides and bus drivers, and parent-chaperones comment on how impressed they are with the level of thought and care put into each trip. Burke Educational Travel is the way to go!"

"Burke Educational Travel has been a tremendous blessing to Metrolina Christian Academy as they provide excellent individualized service for our class trips.

"Our school has taken several trips with Burke Educational Travel over the past few years, and we've enjoyed every one. The hosts and drivers are friendly and helpful, and they arrange everything for us, which saves us the time and difficulty of figuring out trip particulars ourselves. They offer already-packaged tours which makes it easy, but they are also very willing to accommodate specific requests when possible. We're looking forward to another trip with Burke Educational Travel this year!"

"My students and their parents have always had a wonderful experience traveling with Burke Educational Travel. The office staff is friendly and extremely efficient and helpful in the planning, and booking of an exceptional, educational itinerary that provides a fun and exciting learning experience. The coaches are always clean and comfortable, and the drivers are exceptionally skilled and helpful. The tour guides are friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable and interact well with students, parents, and chaperones. I have been so pleased with Burke Tours that I wouldn’t consider traveling with another company."

"We have used Burke Educational Tours for 5 years now for our 8th grade trips and they have been wonderful. They always give us the most for our money. Depending on the destination, the company picks the best places to visit so that the students can relate it the school curriculum and get more out of it. They are always helpful and willing to change things if there is a need to do so. Thank you for being awesome and can’t wait for this year’s trip!"

"I used Burke Educational Travel for the first time two years ago when I took over the planning of our end of the year 8th grade field trip. After that first trip with them I was hooked!!! The people were awesome, the trip was so much fun and ran so smoothly! Every single detail was planned and taken care of by their tour was amazing! I definitely recommend BET!"
