  • Careful selection of all tour components including transportation, hotel, attractions, restaurants and other student tour suppliers.
  • 24 Hour emergency contact phone numbers, emergency contact cards & lanyards for each participant.
  • Use of hotel properties that have interior corridors.
  • Private, professional security guards to monitor the hotel hallways for overnight tours (optional).
  • Comprehensive accident and illness coverage for each tour participant for the duration of the tour with medical, accident, and dental coverage.
  • Professional Tour Operator's Insurance and General Liability Insurance for the duration of the tour.
  • A Consumer Protection Plan, through our membership requirements of SYTA, provides you with the assurance of Hemisphere's financial integrity along with protecting your financial investment.
