Fully Customized Tour Development
We work with you to create a fully customized itinerary that meets your groups’ specific needs. We’ll put our expertise to work on your behalf to make sure your experience is truly your own. We know that every group is unique and we always treat them as such.
Safe and Secure Travel – Safety is our # 1 priority
Our multi-level safety network insures that your student’s safety is our number one priority. Our company safety plan includes a 24-hour emergency assistance number that is listed on the back of each student’s ID name tag (provided by Academic Expeditions) and private nighttime security at each of our lodgings. We also include one of the most comprehensive travel protection policies in the industry. With this network in place, you can be assured peace of mind while your students are traveling.
Outstanding Educational Content
It is our goal to provide your students with an opportunity of a lifetime and to open the door to lifelong learning, inspiration and discovery through travel. The stories they hear, the places they visit and people they encounter will help transform history into something students experience and understand firsthand for themselves.
