About 500 Tours, Inc.


In the spring of 1985, two junior high educators with a combined total of twenty-seven years of experience in leading group tours, began talking about the historical areas of the United States. They talked about starting a company that would provide students with educational experiences that were not obtainable in a traditional classroom. Experiences that would give students a greater understanding of the things they read about in their textbooks. Experiences that would last a lifetime. Out of these discussions 500 Tours was formed.

Today 500 Tours is one of the most respected tour companies in the industry. We specialize in offering school groups an opportunity to see and experience educational, cultural and historical adventures. The quality and care that we put into each and every one of our student tours cannot be matched by any other company and we work hard to keep it that way.

Every year thousands of students travel with 500 Tours. Our continued goal is to make sure that we provide each of them with the very best service and the most educational experience for the lowest price possible.
