The group thoroughly enjoyed the tour and it was possibly the smoothest school trip I have arranged or been on. The company were terrific from start to finish - in the planning, VISA process (the most challenging bit) as well as the actual trip itself. I would certainly recommend TCBC to any school considering a trip to Russia. An excellent experience, thank you!

TCBC stands for The City Break Companythe name we started out with 11 years ago.

We are a family business with a strong educational background in Russia and all things Russian, a long history of travel and valuable experience in guiding and planning school tours. We unintentionally but quickly and happily settled into the niche market of organising educational school tours to Russia.

Teachers, delighted with their tour and our services, began to ask if we could organise trips to other destinations, and we slowly started to add new cities to our portfolio. The huge success of these tours led to our eventual rebranding and TCBC School Tours.

Each year we continue to grow steadily and confidently, with more and more schools choosing to travel with us, allowing us to become a market leader in customised educational school tours. We currently take more schools to Russia annually than any other tour operator.

Our aim is not to grow too fast, beyond our control. We intentionally keep our destination list to a minimum, preferring a select number of cities and tours which we know we can manage well, and perhaps most importantly for which we know we can continue to maintain our impressive high standard of customer service of which we are very proud.

Above all we value the personal touch. We make every effort possible to travel to all our schools and meet the teachers who place their trust in us to organise their trips. Planning a tour can take up to a year or more, so it is vital in our eyes that you know who you are working with and who is responsible for organising your tour.

We want to work together with you for many years to come and will do everything possible to ensure you and your students enjoy the trip of a lifetime with us.

We look forward to organising your next school trip,

The TCBC team
