Sample Answer:
I went on many excursions and study tours from my college and in university level as well and the tour I would like to talk about was in 2004 when I was a college student. The college notice board one day declared that there would be an education tour to the central museum and the interested persons are invited to place application form and money to the authority.

I was interested and when I found that my close friends from the college would also go, I asked my father for the permission to take part in the excursion. On the day, I went to the college ground and found that other students and teachers have already gathered there. The bus left at 7:30 am and we reached the museum at around12:00 pm. Though many of my friends already went to the central museum, I never went there before the study tour from our college.

I enjoyed everything I watched there and our history teacher was explaining many of the things preserved in the museum. That day I realised how exciting the study tour can be. It gives both the opportunity to learn and enjoy.

We took our lunch in the museum canteen with the foods we took with us and in the evening we returned to our hometown approximately at midnight. I learned about the past history of our country, some of the old customs and practice we had in our country, several significant evidence of the history and the life and work of famous people of our country.

Actually I enjoyed the tour very much and as a result, I still remember it. This time I learned that there are some other ways of learning things apart from attending classes. The excursion was so interesting to me that I planned to travel extensively in my life at that very day.
