Custom Group Travel

Walking Tree Travel is excited to offer customized travel itineraries to a variety of destinations around the world. In order to provide our participants with a unique, adventurous, and safe experience abroad, our Custom Program Director will work closely with a group sponsor to design every aspect of their travel. We will tailor the itinerary to specific interests and educational goals. WTT encourages groups to spend a portion of their program in one of our many welcoming host communities, dedicating time to authentic homestays and local service work.

WTT strives to make the planning process as easy and hassle-free as possible. We do this by helping you as a teacher and group organizer with recruiting, and then by handling all logistical concerns including meals, transportation, accommodations, and group activities, leaving travelers to enjoy the ride.
