Educational philosophy

Approach to travel

Travel designed with your future in mind

When done right, traveling is an education. It lights up your senses and introduces you to new perspectives in a way only the best lessons can. So that’s what we set out to provide: for every student, in partnership with the teachers who lead our tours. Because, yes, we create once-in-a-lifetime physical journeys. But what makes our tours truly life-changing are the even more powerful personal journeys they enable.

Let our detail-loving experts lead the way

Compelling itineraries that are rooted in experiential learning and curated by experts. It’s what you can expect from any EF tour, whether it’s a trip specially designed for middle school students or an itinerary built to go off the beaten path. We bring educators, world travelers, subject-matter specialists, and locals together to craft every last detail of your travel experience—and that diverse team puts the same level of care and planning into each of our tours.

Our promise to travel responsibly
