The answers are varied and numerous, but all boil down to two words: service and experience.

Since our inception in 1989, we have focused on providing the highest level of service to international schools throughout the world. Our offices are continuously manned throughout the day (and often the night!) to be able to respond to you quickly and efficiently, thereby providing you with the information you require in a speedy fashion. We are also adept at swiftly adapting to your proposal requirements, should they change unexpectedly.

How are we able to do this when other companies can't? Experience. Yes, with 29 years working with international schools around the world we know our destinations inside and out. For example, with over 200 Paris groups under our belt, we have the expertise to build your specific program to the French capital to your exact specifications. The 240 or so etr groups which have explored Italy benefited from this experience as have the groups to all our destinations. Just ask the tens of thousands of students who have travelled with etr. Service and experience. How else?

01Complete Customization of Your Program
Your time out of the classroom is both valuable and limited and the key to our success would be assisting teachers by providing innovative and time efficient programs to their chosen destination....just the way you want it. To do this right, we have a fully staffed office with a team of travel professionals who are here to assist every step of the way. We utilize our extensive destination knowledge in the planning of your tour, making sure it's just the way you want it. No other company, which caters exclusively to international schools, can assist you in this way.
But we also understand that the easier we make it for you the better. Our response time is unsurpassed and as we have 29 years experience, we can get right back to you with the information you require. As we said, service and experience.

02Value for Money
With our experience, we are simply able to get more for your dollar (or colones, or euro or dong). The key is planning the most time efficient program. Not hectic, not rushed, but smooth and well thought out.

03Attention to Detail
Speaking about planning, every etr tour is planned down to the very last detail. Our head office team is the most experienced in organizing and leading student tours and knows just how to get the most for your students' time in your chosen destination. Whether on a Community Service program in Cambodia or studying the lingering effects of Communism in Moscow,  we have at our fingertips all the information necessary to make sure you get the best planned program available.

04etr Tour Director
All etr student programs are accompanied by an experienced professional leader who is personally selected not solely on the basis of being conscientious, reliable and knowledgeable, but also friendly, resourceful and committed to the well being of your group. Their skills will include the ability to smoothly guide your journey in your chosen destination, whether in a remote wilderness area or one of the world's capital cities. Above all your etr tour Director will be someone whose company you enjoy and who as a result will make a welcomed contribution to your travel experience.
