We offer 100+ carefully crafted itineraries to destinations worldwide. And if none of these seem just right, we can then customize trips to new destinations, incorporate service learning opportunities and design homestays. In fact, any trip can be personalized a little or a lot—check out our dynamic menu of trip activities for inspiration. Our International Program Team will get to know you and your educational travel goals, then help you choose and customize the ideal tour.
Would you rather stay steps from MUghal Garden or within earshot of Singapore? We thought so—that’s why we have the most centrally located hotels in the business. Commuting two hours a day is a waste of your precious overseas time. And comfort is essential, which is why all of our hotels are three- and four-star rated.
Eating the local cuisine is one of the best and most enjoyable ways to experience a new culture. With Etravex, there are endless opportunities. Daal Baati in Rajasthan, pizza in Italy—it’s authentic food your students will eat and enjoy. What you won’t get are pale imitations of the real thing, served at 5:00 pm seatings at suburban hotels. Leave that to the other student travel companies.
Etravex tour managers are the heart and soul of our trips. They’re carefully selected, rigorously trained, artfully matched with group leaders and wholly supported by our overseas network. Best of all, they know how to explain the history and culture of each destination so students are engaged—and sometimes laughing out loud. It’s no wonder group leaders are constantly telling us how much they adore them.
We simply include more than other tour companies. In fact, it’s not even close. Some inclusions are tour highlights like French cooking lessons or bull ranch visits. Others are personal connections like a dinner with a local family in Gujarat or a visit with local students in Singapore. The reality is that bargain prices come from including less. We think you deserve more.
Not only do we include the key sights on our itineraries from the beginning, we also book timed entrances to museums and other attractions for our groups wherever possible. Ask your Program Consultant for more details.
Let’s face it: Getting there is rarely half the fun. But it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. We make the hassles of transportation easier with flights as direct as possible, 4-berth couchettes on overnight trains and buses that are clean, operated by reputable companies and drivers, and not packed to capacity. So you arrive in a new city feeling refreshed and ready to explore — not exhausted.
Our itineraries reflect years of experience in how to maximize your travel time. That means less time waiting and more time experiencing: Arranging stays in Venice to make the most of the city’s water taxi system — with passes that we provide. Touring cities in the evening by bicycle, so you can cover more ground (and have more fun!) than if you’d walked. Whatever trip you’re on, it will run like clockwork, but never feel rushed.
Another aspect of maximizing travel time is making use of ALL of the day, including the night! Our centrally located hotels allow our groups time to further explore after dinner, an opportunity that just isn’t available with ordinary travel companies. Evenings are a great time to see another side of a city like the locals do and we don’t want you to miss out.
