Are you looking to take a break and explore?

EDT can help take the stress out of planning a vacation and let you focus on the fun.

With our roots dating back to 1980, Educational Discovery Tours is your group travel planning specialist! Whatever the vision is for your next group travel get-together, we can customize an itinerary to help you accomplish your goals and exceed your expectations! Whether you are a corporate group looking to reward your top performers, an alumni group looking to explore America’s most beautiful national parks, or a group of adult friends wanting to visit California’s award-winning vineyards, craft breweries, and 5-star restaurants, Educational Discovery Tours has a trip for you!

The staff at Educational Discovery Tours share more than 150 years of experience in the tour and travel business and rely on that knowledge every day to provide customers with a top-notch Custom Group Tour/Travel planning experience.

Our experienced Program Directors begin the tour design process by scheduling a consultation with you to learn about your vision for the tour. That would include your budget, destinations, areas of interest, style of the trip (active or relaxed), featured inclusions, and more. We then put our years of experience to work for you and come up with a dream trip to match!

“We have had adult groups ( of 25- 60 adults) travel with EDT many times both internationally and domestically and we have never been disappointed! They have put together itineraries that are full of all the sites you need and want to see with knowledgeable tour guides who take care of everything. All you have to do is be ready to go each morning at the appointed time and the rest is organized and carried out by the tour guide. Best of all, trip payments are made monthly leading up to the trip, so they are reasonable and you can use your credit card or pay cash- the choice is yours! After traveling with other travel companies in the past, we have been extremely happy with EDT for adult trips and will continue to travel with them!”
