Since our beginning in 1991, Educational Travel Adventures has taken thousands of students on tours throughout the world. We know that there is no tool more powerful than seeing your classroom come to life in the real world. That’s why we strive to provide unique learning opportunities that meet your specific educational goals, making each of our programs the educational experience of a lifetime for your students.
We are active members of the Student Youth Travel Association (SYTA), the National Tour Association (NTA), and the American Bus Association (ABA), all industry associations of professional tour companies committed to excellence. In addition, we maintain a multi-million dollar liability insurance policy for your protection.
From the dynamic team that makes up our staff, to our talented and dedicated Tour Managers, the ETA Family is a tight-knit group of people with far-reaching connections working together to create one-of-a-kind educational programs.
We know how important a successful trip is to you. Your group has high expectations and you want them to walk away with a smile, a sense of fulfillment and reward. Let the experts do the planning for you!
One of our knowledgeable Tour Consultants that specializes in your destination will work with you from your first call until the day of departure. They will be available to customize your itinerary, answer your questions, provide guidance and listen to your feedback. On your trip you will always have 24 hour access to our emergency phone number where a representative will be able to answer any questions that arise. And of course you will have an engaging Tour Manager during your trip to guide you through your journey.
Our job is to take the weight of planning a trip off your shoulders! We will provide you with information about the trip to share with your students and their parents. We will send you a customized flyer outlining the itinerary and trip details. We can also provide a PowerPoint picture slide show if needed.
We will customize a website specifically for your group that will allow students to sign up and pay for their trip online! As the lead contact for the trip, you may access the information online at any time. We also offer payment plan options for people who want to make a series of payments rather than a deposit and then one large balance.
Our experienced team will customize a program to suit your needs. Our professional Tour Consultants will help set up an itinerary that will complement the classroom experience by incorporating elements of your curriculum into the tour. You tell us your vision for the program, and we will do the rest! Whether you know exactly what you are looking for in a program or are interested in new ideas and suggestions, our aim is to make sure that your program meets your specific educational goals.
Your safety is our first priority from conception to completion of each program. We understand that safety and risk management are year-round tasks that require ongoing learning, improving and adjusting. For this reason, we begin with meticulously planned programs and detailed emergency plans, while continuously evaluating our policies, procedures and protocols.
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.
They will be with you throughout the entire tour and will take care of all included sightseeing, activities, accommodations, transportation and meals. This allows you to focus on the students and enjoy the tour without worrying about logistics.
No matter how many students go on your trip, you want to go too!
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.
