Educational World Tours has a wealth of experience arranging educational trips for school and leadership groups. We can assist in all tour arrangements including flights, insurance, accommodation, transportation, land arrangements, and volunteering opportunities. EWT was founded on the principle that travel provides unique learning experiences to students that inform their understanding of the world around them. EWT has been partnering with educators since 2002 and designs travel itineraries to suit the needs of a broad scope of groups. As of 2018 EWT has joined the Adventures Abroad Group; this allows us to better aid in travel arrangements as our international contacts have greatly expanded with this partnership. We pride ourselves on providing tours that cater to each group by including activities specific to their interests, this includes volunteer opportunities and cultural exchanges. Our itineraries explore different cultures, landscapes, peoples and lifestyles around the world.​
