Brilliant opportunity for pupils - well run & organised. (October 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 16595 )




Company didn't know how long activities would take and where they were in relation to each other, so we missed or were late to nearly every activity. (August 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 15420 )




Very well organised (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 15206 )




Communication difficult Sub standard coach driver Accomodation and activities were positive (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 14677 )




Mostly excellent communication and well organised. Just one special request that was not sorted completely but it was soon resolved when we were there. (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 14557 )




Excellent customer service, friendly staff. Itinerary exactly what we wanted (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 14376 )




Organised before we went but difficult to get support from Spain. Confusion over the coach operator's pick up time and their inflexibility. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12939 )




(June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 12845 )




A very well planned and organised visit. The guides were very knowledgeable which provided students with an excellent insight to the key events of WWI. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 12562 )

The pre-trip service was fantastic, with our representative always available to provide any help and answer questions. Our rep whilst on the trip was good but perhaps could have been a bit more organised with his planning. Overall though, a very good experience with Equity who we'll be definitely using again.

Helpful at the resort. No issues in organising (February 2019 - Primary & Secondary - Post No: 9683 )




Extremely well organised tour by Equity. Very fun and very informative. (November 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 8049 )
Provider Response: Thank you very much for your great feedback! Hope to see you again soon, The Equity Team.



The tour was very well thought out and timetabled. (November 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 7583 )




(November 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 7408 )




Very good range of activities and accommodation was suitable. (October 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 7329 )




The programme ran smoothly although it was not easy to establish if that was down to equity or the provider. There were issues with the coach journey pick ups and timings which could have been handled better. (October 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 7178 )




Equity were very attentive while we were away but there were a few errors which could have easily been avoided. (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6592 )




(September 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 6244 )




The concert venues organised by Equity were in very interesting spaces and mostly well attended. Advertising had clearly been put up in advance and some in the audiences said that they had attended specifically because they had seen them. We received the final itinerary very late; confirmation of one of the concert venues was also late in arriving. The other individual visits on the trip were wonderful, however, they might have been more logically arranged; as it was, we spent an unnecessary amount of time on the coach, travelling back and forth between different parts of the Netherlands. Communication with Equity was generally good, and very friendly and accommodating. The concert organiser was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some good suggestions. (July 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 5575 )




Everything was as we asked. Accommodation was ideal. Food provided for both staff and children was superb. The tour guides were fantastic and the different elements to the trip were just what we needed. The staff from equity dealt with any questions promptly and when we asked for different amenities or a change in the programme this was greeted positively and sourced for us quickly and efficiently.

(April 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 2463 )




Brilliantly organised. (April 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 2312 )




Very good pre-trip service. A number of issues - especially with the quality of Rep. and one ski school instructor, who they couldn't change. (March 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 1949 )




(March 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 1857 )




Everything went smoothly so Equity got the arrangements right I had 3 changes of contact during the process, they seem to have a high staff turnover (March 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 1685 )
