Why be both Travel Agent AND Teacher?

We do the planning while you do the teaching!

A successful trip means ensuring the safety of your group, efficiency in the tour, and having all the logistics in place. At Travel With Barb, we take pride in our ability to offer these things for you so you can focus on the most important thing – your students. A great travel experience changes lives, and creates life-long memories. Your trip preparations shouldn’t take away time from your teaching responsibilities. Plus, if you are busy handling the logistics and tour planning for your group, you will have less time to enjoy this rewarding opportunity with your students.

Cost effective planning.

Whether it’s choosing a good hotel location in relation to your group tour activities, securing special rates at key attractions, or handling food and beverage options that are a good “fit” for students, Travel With Barb has the relationships and resources with these vendors to help you get the best VALUE for your dollar.

Peace of mind.

Relying on the experience and expertise of a Travel With Barb tour planner can bring peace of mind to you the teacher, to parents of your students, and to your school administrators. Our experienced tour planners can anticipate the unexpected, and will deliver a level of preparedness that’s hard to match when you plan on your own.

At Travel With Barb, we pride ourselves on our integrity and outstanding service. Our job is to work closely with you to ensure your group has a valuable, educational, and memorable travel experience.


“I will NEVER travel again without your assistance.  The sheer time that your company saved me so I could concentrate on my teaching and students alone was worth the investment.  In this age where customer service has been removed from so many companies it is refreshing to work with a group of people that value customer service above all other aspects of their business.”

– Lester Ray Miller III, Director of Choral Arts, Ankeny Centennial High School
