Our Mission is to inspire students to become curious and compassionate global citizens by taking an active interest in the world around them. Programs are designed for travelers who seek an authentic international experience while cultivating lasting connections to the people and places they visit.
It's all about the people! Whether you're staying with a host family, sitting alongside the bus driver on a cross-country haul or negotiating with a vendor for a new souvenir, the locals you meet along the way will illuminate your trip. Walking Tree programs are intentional about visiting places and organizing activities that put travelers in a position to get the most out of every interaction. Trips are private, so you won't be combined with another group whose goals don't match yours.
We stand for a more open, curious, and compassionate approach to travel. Walking Tree partners with teachers and families from around the country to provide memorable small-group experiences where travelers are assured a well-organized, thoughtfully planned, and expertly led program.
