Everything ran like clockwork. All arranged tours/flights went without a hitch whatsoever, and your help in making this run so smoothly is enormously appreciated.

Brilliant tour, accommodation was probably a bit of a let down as although we made a couple of complaints that there were males using the females shower facilities nothing was done about it and they didn't seem to want to be helpful at all. With girls who are not used to sharing facilities it led to some anxiety about using the facilities alone and given the males in question were considerably older as a teacher in charge of the group it was a little concerning for myself as well

Destination Pack
To assist you with planning the most relevant and appropriate itinerary for your students, a Leisure & Learning destination pack complete with a full excursion list including curriculum area recommendations will be sent with every quote.

We will be happy to tailor make your school trip to CERN around your exact requirements.  Below is our most popular 3 day itinerary for CERN school trips (2 day and 4 day trips to CERN are also available):


DAY 1:

On arrival at Geneva Airport, transfer to your accommodation in Geneva, where you may have some free time to enjoy the city. We can organise evening activities such as an evening meal at the accommodation or bowling.

 

DAY 2:

Today visit the amazing CERN, which can easily be reached by the free public transport. Students will get to witness science in the making, by receiving a guided tour of some of the experiments taking place at CERN by a real scientist from CERN. The actual content of what you may see will be down to what is taking place at CERN at the time. In the afternoon, you can enjoy more science wonders including a visit to nearby Microcosm exhibition and History of Science Museum.

 

DAY 3:

Subject to flight times, you may have some free time. If you have free time, why not embark upon a boat cruise on Lake Geneva and take in some of the stunning scenery surrounding Geneva.

Geneva offers some superb visit opportunities for science groups - contact us today for more information and a free information pack.
