Global Educational Travel has been broadening the horizons of students for 26 years, combining engaging education, inspiring life-lessons and affordable international travel to maximum effect.

Experience is the best teacher. We are the best at providing it. Here are a few reasons why:

Private groups; no exceptions
We guarantee never to combine your group with another. Your tour is your own and you and your students deserve to enjoy it without the distractions and complications inherent in multi-group departures.

Experts on the beaten path; specialists off it
Having designed and operated group tours to 120 countries for more than 25 years, we are as proficient at organizing travel in the popular, "mainstream" destinations as we are in the more far-flung regions of the world—whether it's Spain, Greece, China, South Africa and Israel, or Azerbaijan, Djibouti, North Korea, Vanuatu and Iran; our staff's destination expertise spans the globe.

First-rate service and support
From your initial contact with us until after your return flight home, your Tour Co-ordinator will be on-hand to attend to your needs. Behind the scenes, our Product Development, Tour Consulting and Operations departments will seamlessly work with you to create, plan and run your tour, and our Marketing department will help you promote your tour by equipping you with a custom website, posters, flyers, online slideshows, Powerpoint presentations...whatever you need to generate interest in your itinerary.

Authentic travel experiences
Our philosophy is that educational travel is about more than just visiting a destination; it's about learning about its history, appreciating its culture and developing an understanding about its place in the context of the modern world. As such, we opt for local eateries over restaurant chains, boutique accommodation over large, Western hotels, and we actively seek to include lesser-visited yet equally rewarding attractions normally overlooked by travel planners.

Fully customizable itineraries
While all the tours on this website are trips we've run in the past and are available with a personalized quote, we realize that your requirements and desires of you or your students may be entirely different—you can use the sample packages for ideas as you contemplate your student adventure, or we can design an entirely customized itinerary that includes your preferred sights or elements/themes of interest.
