Discovery Tours Suspends Operations "Effective Immediately"

CLEVELAND- After complaints from multiple local school districts, Discovery Tours, has suspended its operations, 'effective immediately' and says "all future trips are cancelled".

The Mayfield village company  was behind this last weeks cancellation of a mentor eighth grade field trip to Washington, D.C.

Oberlin students had been scheduled to take their D.C. trip later this month, and North Royalton middle school kids were only able to keep their planned trip to our nations capitol, scheduled for later this week, thanks to some last-minute help from two other tour companies.

The Ohio Attorney General's office has received more than 170 complaints against Discovery Tours. 

Prosecutors in  both Geauga and Summit counties have also opened investigations, and asked parents to keep all documents and receipts for their children's trips.

Carylann Assante with the Student and Youth Travel Association tells our news partner  WKYC TV, considering how many school districts that she's heard from, parents may have lost as much as $7 million dollars.
