What is a study tour ?

A study tour is a travel experience with specific learning goals.  The learning goals of each study tour vary, but are always spelled out in the course syllabus that is distributed to each learner.  Study tours emphasize experiential learning and offer both group and self-directed activities that enable learners to explore new territories, cultures, and people.
Study tours are designed to be both fun and educational.  Our groups enjoy the local cuisine, socialize freely, and make use of the local recreational and cultural resources of the areas that we visit.  However, study tours are NOT party trips.  If you are looking for a spring break blitz or summer beach party, you'll do better to look elsewhere for your travel experience.

What are some of the advantages of traveling with one of our groups?
