    Can anyone advise?? I'm planning a school trip to the US in 2017. We'll be starting in New York and transferring to Washington DC mid-way through. As aprt of the transfer we're planning to spend a couple of days "beach-based" in Atlantic City. However, I've heard dubious reports of Atlantic City - anyone been that can advise. Cape May is further along the coast and would be ideal for a family or adults, but I'm going to have 100-150 14-17 year old students with me. Travel companies don't really help - they just want the money.

    150 kids! Wow. The most I ever took to the USA was 15. Sorry, I can't really help as my trips were to Chicago. Are they all responsible for getting their ESTA? Are they all British or from countries that are eligible for ESTAs?

    I used trailfinders for the flights, they were always the most competitive. Will you get everyone on the same plane?

    If you can link up with schools over their then they may be able to organise yellow school buses for transport. They are very cheap (and uncomfortable).

    We always stayed in youth hostels.

    If you need someone to bounce ideas off I am happy to try and help.
