Introduction

Since 2009 we’ve been offering all-inclusive international travel programs for students interested developing core travel skills while exploring some of the world's most interesting places as part of a small group.
Our programs focus on the students, constantly challenging language, navigation, collaboration, and budgeting skills with real world activities like acquiring maps, finding hotels, navigating public transportation, evaluating restaurants, and eating well while staying within a meal allowance.

Itinerary

Paris, the City of Light. The most beautiful and romantic of all cities, it is also the world’s most popular tourist destination.
From the comfort and convenience of our centrally located hotel all the sights of the city are a short walk or metro ride away - the iconic Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, the magnificent Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sacré-Cœur Basilica, the Louvre, d’Orsay, and Rodin Museums, the Bateaux Mouches, and Napoleon’s Tomb. Our day trip to Versailles includes a tour of the palace, an afternoon relaxing in the gardens, boating on the Grand Canal, and exploring Marie Antoinette’s cottages.
For our time in the Loire Valley we'll stay in Blois, a picturesque town with great shopping and restaurants. We'll see three of the best châteaux in the Loire Valley - the monumental Château de Blois; Château Chambord, designed by Leonardo Da Vinci; and Château de Chenonceau, stretching romantically across the River Cher.
