Experience the modern approach to educational travel

We’re reimagining what educational tours should look like and defining the modern class trip. Monuments, landmarks, and museums are only the beginning. There’s so much more to our class trips and so much more for students to gain from our destinations. Our itineraries meet students where they are today, and provide lessons that will stick with them—and help drive them—wherever they go next.

Something for every student

Our class trips to Washington, D.C. and New York City put us on the map (no pun intended) and are still our most popular picks for educational tours. But when you partner with us, we’ll work with you to craft the perfect experience for you. Want something subject specific? Check out our different tour types to find trips focusing on everything from STEM to performing arts to service learning. Have a specific place in mind? Browse by your dream destination. Or, lean on our team to create your ideal itinerary from scratch.


Our not-so-secret travel advisors are teachers.

We involve them at every stage of EF Explore America’s tour design process. From inviting educators to scout out new destinations with us, to their role in previewing trips before students ever set foot on them, to reading all of our Group Leaders’ feedback in real time, teachers are the people who help make our itineraries shine.

Our promise to travel responsibly

As the world leaders in educational travel, we’re dedicated to positively impacting our travelers as well as the places and people they visit—both now and for years to come. Our EF Responsible Travel initiatives focus on three specific commitments: to support local communities, to promote animal welfare, and to protect the environment. Join us as we put in the effort today to make a better world for everyone tomorrow.
