School, College & University Trips

The Americas are bursting with ways to educate students and leave them asking questions long beyond the duration of the trip. History, geography, geology, music & technology - the list goes on. The world is your classroom.

School, College & University TripsWe believe that some of the most memorable educational experiences are those found outside the walls of a school, where knowledge can be applied to real life practical situations. Want to learn about America's civil war history? There's no better place than the USA itself, where you can walk the Freedom Trail and see the birthplace of the conflict first-hand.

Want to study the intricacies of American geology? Head to Death Valley or Yellowstone National Park for some of the finest and most notable examples of geological formations in the world.
