Tour Managers are vital to the integrity and safety of our programs. Accompanying each group is a dedicated Tour Manager who has been carefully selected for his/her experience working with students, responsibility, organization, language skills, knowledge of the destination, flexibility and sense of humor. Our Tour Managers are well-traveled, enthusiastic and love sharing their life experiences to create the best possible program for students.

Are ETA trips private or combined with other schools/organizations?
All of our tours are private. The trip is tailored to the needs and interests of you and your school. We only combine groups at the request of the school.
