A Message from Mark Clarke, President of Jumpstreet Tours

Posted by Mark Clarke on Thu, Jan 8, 2015 @ 11:41 AM

What does a grade eight class trip to DC, or a French language Quebec City student tour have to do with Yoga? Probably not much in general. However, when I sit in perfect pose I am immediately brought into focus - I am reminded that the world is not about me but if I pay respectful attention I understand that the world wants me to be an integral part of it.

Jumpstreet Tours is about you, the tour organizer. If my business and I pay mindful attention to you, your students, and your community at large by putting you first, then you will want us to be an integral part of your world. This is exactly what we have been doing for 26 years and counting.

Three Things Jumpstreet Taught me About Travel

Posted by Véronique Blais on Thu, May 1, 2014 @ 03:59 PM

Véronique Blais joined our office team last June. With a background in Language and Communications, the trilingual 23-year-old fit in right away, bringing a natural enthusiasm and work ethic to the Operations and Marketing projects that she supports. In December we asked Véro to write about her firsthand experience of a student tour of Québec City; this time, she was gracious enough to share her thoughts on how working here has impacted her understanding of travel.

The floodgate

s have opened! As teachers and students from all over North America pour into their motorcoaches to hit the road for their epic spring tour adventure—venturing to the likes of Quebec, New York City and Europe to greet their intrepid Jumpstreet tour leader—I find myself wondering how working for Jumpstreet Tours has impacted my perception of student travel. In many ways, the idea of working for a company that specializes in offering extraordinary educational tours has affected my understanding of travel as a whole. Here are three examples:

Just as we’re finishing our leftovers from Jumpstreet’s Canadian Thanksgiving in October, that sweet aroma of gravy and pie is already wafting in from our neighbours down south!
