What our customers think is incredibly important, so don’t just take our word for it, let our happy customers help you make up your mind to travel with Discover the World Education.

All of these comments are from the start of 2017, and everyone who travelled had a great time in Iceland.

“The kids were blown away by the Glacier walk and Jokulsarlon. As ever many loved the swimming too and the Blue Lagoon… Overall the kids have come back buzzing!”
Rupert Needham

“Our third visit to Iceland was intricately organised by Discover the World who enabled us to cram as much into our five days as possible. From start to finish the customer service and assistance in planning such a trip for 60 kids was superb, and by far the best I have ever come across. As for the 2017 trip: Perfection! The extended itinerary, the guide, the weather (so lucky), the experience… I can’t imagine working with another company.”

“We have travelled with Discover the World to Iceland 4 times and the Bay of Naples once and they have always been very professional and the trips are extremely well organised. We especially like the ability to be able to create our own itinerary now we have been to Iceland many times. We would thoroughly recommend Discover the World to any school who want to do a foreign trip.”
Sarah Page

“No northern lights but to be honest, they would have just been the icing on what was an amazing trip… Thank you so much for your continued help. Your efficiency makes us come back to Discover the World Education every time!”

“The hotel we stayed in was excellent. Good location, very comfortable and the staff were very welcoming. This was my 7th trip to Iceland and I would say it was the best accommodation and best food I have had on a school trip.”
Sue Edwards

“We got back on Sunday night after a fabulous four days…everyone loved it – the kids were great and I am going to speak to the Headteacher next week about going back next year… Fingers crossed!”

“We once again thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Iceland. Both the driver (Karli) and the guide (Skuli) where excellent. The hotels and food were super and matched up to our expectations… So, thank you once again for all what you have done to allow this trip to occur. We have already started to plan for the next one in 2019.”
Neil Brown

“Another outstanding visit to the wonderful country of Iceland. For the past couple of years the weather was icy, but this year it was milder than the UK!! Discover the World Education ensure that the trip goes without any glitches. All in all – fantastic.”

“The trip was amazing and in lots of ways better than last time… Lava tube caving was amazing and the kids learnt so much… Discover the World Education as always was fab, everything ran like clockwork and was completely organised.”
