EDUCATIONAL TOURS

Educational tours are guided trips that take high school and middle school students to cultural and historical attractions in a variety of destinations. Led by knowledgeable tour guides and featuring customized itineraries, Brightspark Travel’s educational student tours are designed to meet the unique academic needs of different groups. From history and social studies tours to Washington, D.C. to science-focused trips to Costa Rica, students of every subject and interest will find an educational travel experience that inspires.

According to both first-hand experiences and comprehensive studies, the benefits of educational travel are many. By adding a real-life component to lessons from textbooks, student tours prove that learning doesn’t have to stop in the classroom. In fact, students who have engaged in educational travel are statistically more likely to pursue independent learning. Further, in our increasingly connected world, educational travel helps to create global citizens: It expands young peoples’ mindsets and horizons by introducing them to cultures, lifestyles, and infrastructures that differ from those found in their hometowns.

What are some can’t-miss educational travel spots? Brightspark helps educators create one-of-a-kind educational tours to some of the most inspiring domestic and international destinations. From a simple trip to your state’s capitol to a tour through Europe’s biggest cities, there’s a destination for every need and budget. Here are some of our very favorites:
