Using Geography to Make the Most of Your Thanksgiving Meal

No matter where you live in the U.S. - no matter how many football games you watch, or black Friday sales you (barely) survive - the dinner table is the beating heart of Thanksgiving.

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.

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:

Posted by Michael Johnson on Thu, Nov 28, 2013 @ 09:37 AM

Here are just some of the things for which Jumpstreet is thankful:
