Travel that’s 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 beyond 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.
