We recognize the extraordinary role that meaningful international travel can play in shaping the lives of young people, and strive to create itineraries which push travelers to see themselves and the places they visit in a new and exciting light. To us, the bottom line which matters most is the new perspective gained when we push our comfort zones and open ourselves to the unexpected. In an industry filled with cookie-cutter tours, we achieve this authenticity by building programs from the ground up, an approach which caught the eye of  The Smithsonian Institution  and led to an amazing collaboration which lasted four years, coming to an end in 2020.

To learn more about what sets us apart from our competitors, read below. 

Private Group Travel
When we say private group travel, we mean it. Regardless of your group size, we will never combine you with another school group unless it is at your request.

No Hidden Fees
We believe in being honest and transparent with our partners. No hidden fees, no excluded lunches or activities, and no additional tips or taxes.

Simple Planning
You recruit the travelers, we do everything else. This includes payment collection, fundraiser management, and info meeting organization.

Authentic Cultural Engagement
Travel like a local, not a tourist. Homestays, community projects, centrally located accommodations, and local restaurants are all central to our programming.

Free Curriculum Support
Our 360 program support starts the minute you contact us and doesn’t end when your program is over. Our free Global Leadership Activities are valuable learning aids to be used in the classroom and beyond.

Fully Customized Itineraries
Rather than a cookie-cutter tour, we will build your program from the ground up, taking your expectations and goals for the program into account when designing the itinerary.

Free Travel for Teachers
Teachers travel free and are also entitled to a cash stipend.

Dynamic Program Leaders
Instead of a collection of local tour guides, we provide you with a travel expert who will be with the group for the entire program.

Founder Owned and Operated
One of our Founders will be your main point of contact from start to finish.
