More Than Travel

Providing teachers like you with the opportunity to not only change lives, but grow and benefit personally, too. 

Why Travel with EF Explore America?

We know that travel has the ability to change lives and perspectives. But we believe that getting to the point of travel includes keeping the teachers that make it happen in mind.

So at EF Explore America, we are committed to making educational travel as easy as possible for you and your students, while providing some great benefits along the way.

Professional Learning


Educators who travel on an EF tour for students, or a Professional Learning Tour for educators, can complete travel-based courses to earn up to 45 professional development hours/points or 6 graduate-level university credits. The courses are built around research, planning, and on-tour reflection, with the goal of bringing meaningful and engaging lessons to life when back in the classroom after travel.

Free Travel


Through a commitment to making educational travel as accessible as possible, not only do we offer students a guaranteed lowest price against other tour providers coupled with personalized payment plans, but we also give teachers at minimum two opportunities to travel for free, on behalf of EF. 

You will gain a free spot on tour for every six students you enroll, good for you and other adult travelers. Additionally, as a first time Group Leader, we'll send you on a free Training Tour to experience a tour before you lead one.

Dedicated Team Support


Knowing that your teaching responsibilities don't include the need to be an educational travel expert, we offer a dedicated support team to make planning as easy as possible - keeping your classroom and school needs in mind.

From a Tour Consultant who works with you from start to finish, to an experienced Tour Director who is your point of contact and logistical leader on the ground, and a Travel Support Team that handles any questions your students or families have, we've got you covered. We also provide you with access to Educational Travel Advisors (other teachers like yourself) to provide first-hand accounts of what it's like on tour.
