Getting a group to travel is as easy as 1-2-3 with our recipe for success programs. From raising general awareness to getting students and parents on board, these 3 step guides assist teachers through all stages of trip planning from the beginning through to the end.

Educational Excellence

We believe it's not just the exposure to new places that changes students' lives, but also the kind of experience they have during that exposure. That's why we work with you to build program content that meets your travel/learning goals. We also embed interactive learning activities into each tour, so students genuinely connect with their experiences and retain them.

We educate students through authentic travel encounters beyond the classroom. Our programs are designed for all ages, interests and levels of education. We focus on education, and closely align our trips to curriculum units. Our powerful learning tools further enable us to bring learning to life.

Our approach gets students actively involved in what they're seeing and doing. This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their teachers allows students to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills.

We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to be at the center of the action and experience life like the natives. We put you in centrally located hotels and visit local restaurants - this means more local flavour and more hours to enjoy it!
