MPO now has celebrated 20 years in business! We bring our experience and knowledge of the industry into every trip we plan, selecting the best activities available and allowing for the highest educational content possible. To date, we have moved 100,000’s of students across Canada, the United States and Europe.
Our goal is to provide the most memorable experience possible, to both students and educators, in removing all the hassles of planning and offering all they need to make their school trip a success. We assist educators in customizing their itineraries, presenting all the educational tours and activities available to best suit the purpose of their trip. From the different attractions to meals and transportation, we keep in mind the well-being of your students and staff, and select activities that are engaging, stimulating, and enlightening, while being enjoyable and fun.
Over the years, we have assisted teachers in customizing interactive and educational trips according to curriculums of French, music, science, and history, among others. We have also enjoyed providing our services to scout groups, church youth groups, and other travel groups. In helping you plan, we consider your needs, budget, and goal of the trip. No matter how large or how small in number the group is, we work to ensure each participant an enjoyable, affordable trip.
Our tour guides are knowledgeable, outgoing, dynamic, and energetic, having many years of experience with students and youths. Our friendly office staff is also available to assist you before, during and after your trip. Together, the team at MPO strive to make each trip fun, educational, and memorable for all involved.
