A chance to soak it all in Quality. Authenticity. It's what our teachers love!

We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to eat like the natives do, so we take you to local restaurants. We want you to bunk down right in the center of the action, so we put you in centrally located hotels. All this means more local flavor, and more hours to enjoy it!

Company Visits and Interactive Experiences


Interactive visits to companies and hands-on field study experiences are the core of an educational travel program with WorldStrides. Executive speakers, factory tours, service learning opportunities and more—we’ve planned more than 2,100 company visits in the past 3 years!

This effort is led by our Global Academic Team, an international group with members based in the United States, China, and South America. These planning professionals engage with your program planners to develop an itinerary that illuminates the academic theme you’ve chosen and then taps into a global network of companies, NGOs, and government agencies to source engaging visits for students that bring this theme to life. Our thematic approach to planning these experiences helps to ensure that the purpose of your travel is always at the forefront of our process.

The Global Academic Team can also work with you to arrange applied learning exercises such as Consumer Field Studies designed to get students off the bus to experience the microeconomics of the city and interact with people and places.
