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!

Our trademarked approach to learning—LEAP—gets students actively involved in what they're seeing and doing. This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their tour directors allows students (and teachers) to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills.
