One If By Land Tours is a unique student and adult group travel company that many say is “just too good to be true.” But it is and founder Stuart Weisberg will tell you why.

Why is One If By Land Tours different? “The difference is my 35 years in this business. People trust me and that opens doors for me that are closed to other groups,” says Weisberg.”

Weisberg says his years in the business have given him the best rates. “I don’t just get the wholesale rate,” he says. “I get the bulk wholesale rates and I can pass that along to the schools, sometimes saving up to $100 per student.”

Because he has this trust from his vendors he is able to not only save schools money on their trips, but also be there for them with any problems that occur during their trip.

“I had a school that was stuck on the highway because their bus broke down. I was able to get someone out there immediately due to my contacts in the business,” related Weisberg. “One school called and told me they had only 13 students and this amount of money and I was able to make it happen.”

Because One If By Land Tours has vast experience and contacts, Weisberg is able to analyze any trip and save schools money with a better experience. “I was looking at a trip that was giving students $10 a night to eat at a mall. I did not think that was a good idea. My trip would have included a meal one night at Hard Rock Cafe and a meal at an Italian restaurant one night and saved the school that $10,” said Weisberg.

Wheatley High School took the Philadelphia tour and had this to say: “Our driver was excellent. Our tour director was one of the best in my experience on trips. Could not have worked any harder for us. Of course we will continue to patronize One If By Land Tours.”

Stuart Weisberg understands that schools are facing challenges every year. The schools that have used One If By Land Tours receive the best value in student travel and there are no gimmicks. All tours are customized to meet the needs of the students. If there is a specific curriculum focus, an itinerary can be developed that more than satisfies that need.
