"...Each stop was beneficial in adding to the students' understanding of the wealth of resources in our city.  These visits also reinforced the use of artifacts and primary sources in research, and the... living history presentation was superb."

With tightened budgets, a lot of schools may ask, "Why use a tour company to plan our field trip?" Since Richmond Discoveries is a non-profit, we don't overcharge for our services - we were founded to promote education! The information on the Field Trip Specialist page would also provide lots of reasons, but sometimes teachers prefer to hear from other teachers. Here's what some of our clients have to say.

According to our teachers…

Richmond Virginia Historical Tours"Our 4th grade team has used Richmond Discoveries to help plan our field trip to Richmond for years. The team at Richmond Discoveries is very responsive and easy to work with. They help to tailor the trip to our specific needs, making sure we see all that we want to see while sticking to a schedule and a budget. Having a knowledgeable tour guide with us throughout the day as we visit different sites makes the trip seamless. Their tour guides are engaging, develop a great rapport with our students, and incorporate lots of information from our Virginia History SOLs. Our 4th graders consistently name our Richmond field trip day as one of the best of the year. Even our 6th graders remember it as a highlight of their time in elementary school."
