EDT works with teachers to build an educational student travel experience that supports your teaching agenda.

Check out the various types of student travel programs and begin planning your dream trip today!
There are several benefits to planning early for your educational tour, one of the most important being affordability. Oftentimes, hotels and activities offer discounted rates to groups that book well in advance of their selected trip dates; traveling during low-peak periods can also lower package pricing for groups. Beyond actual pricing, families take advantage of a longer payment schedule with lower monthly payments.
EDT will work with you to help clarify and understand your goals, and then create a matching itinerary to enrich those lessons learned in the classroom.
Our Informative, Interactive, and Fun Educational Tours
Educational Discovery Tours offers a variety of specially designed student tours that focus on Education, Performing Arts, and Special Events. Our most popular trips include:
