Educational Tours

Since 1969 Imperial has offered Educational Tours for groups. In our early years we chartered hundreds of aircraft for one day tours to our Nation’s Capitol. In 1981 Imperial purchased our first luxury motorcoach. Imperial now has one of the most modern and well maintained motorcoach fleets in the state of Indiana , including our new 2009 motorcoach. Imperial has the highest obtainable safety ratings from both the U.S. Dept of Transportation and the Department of Defense, who inspect and charter our equipment for the U.S. Military.

As budgets are more and more squeezed, luxury motorcoach travel is the best value for your dollar. Imperial is a rare combination of a bus company and a tour operator. There are no middlemen as we design our own packages and control both the beginning and end product.

Following are some sample tours for groups. For every budget, and for every interest, Imperial has an option. Each trip can be specifically designed for your group. We do most of the work and will provide a complimentary tour for your sponsor or chaperone.

Benjamin Franklin said it best: “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn”.
