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

Berlin, the German capital, is renowned for its exceptional variety of attractions, its flourishing cultural scene and a way of life that's both fast-paced and relaxed. Our visit emphasizes the modernity of this city of 3.5 million residents, in contrast with the history of the city under the Nazis and then under the Communists.
The journey continues to Leipzig and to Dresden, both cities with long histories which became part of East Germany after World War II. Students will gain a great appreciation for German culture and history on this trip, as well as a lifetime of memories!
