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

Our exploration of Munich and the surrounding region includes time to appreciate the neighborhoods, cuisine, and culture of Germany and Austria, while students flex their navigation, budgeting, and German language speaking skills. In Munich, students will gain an appreciation of the cultural contributions and the complicated history of the German people, while enjoying the best of Bavarian cuisine. Our journey then continues into Austria where we explore the beautiful alpine cities of Garmisch-Partenkirchen ("Go-Pa"), Innsbruck, and Salzburg.
