When it comes to educational student travel, you have several providers to choose from. We know. But ask yourself- which one will give me the most authentic experience for my students?
At WorldStrides, every minute of our tours makes education come alive: from where students stay, to what they eat, to who their guide is.
When it comes to support - we've got you covered. From the day you invite the students on your trip to the moment you return home, you'll have an entire team working on your behalf behind the scenes to ensure that you and your students are having a great - and truly carefree - travel experience on every level.

As educational travel specialists, we know for sure that he more we truly immerse students in the cultures of the places they're visiting, the more learning they absorb and keep That's the beginning of deeper learning. It's also the beginning of the sought-after "global perspective" that serves students so well throughout their lives and careers.
We choose accommodations that are right in the heart of the cities you visit. Other tour companies often put you in suburban location that may be convenient to the airport, but land you a good hour's commute out of the city you plan to visit. With our three-and four-star centrally located hotel choices, you'll get an extra hour or more each day to enjoy the sights.

Rome, Paris, Madrid, and London
Real Deal Cuisine
Pizza in Paris? Mais non! That's because we like to push your students' palate to new and different flavors everywhere they go! They'll eat in local restaurants in major cities, so they can taste the culture firsthand. If you've traveled with your students before, you know it's one of the more intimate - and immediate - ways to learn about a new country and its people. We take great care to ensure your travelers are enjoying full-course meals that are native to the area - from fresh risotto in Italy to bangers and mash in London.
Our trademarked approach to learning—LEAP—actively involves students 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. Learn about LEAP
Travel like the locals do!
A comfortable, air-conditioned motorcoach will be used to take your group to the various sites and activities in your destination city. In some cities, you will walk or take public transportation to many of the sites, when convenient. We use localized public transportation because it's efficient and gives your students a taste of how the natives commute - and we include it in your price, too!
