The United States opens up a wealth of opportunities for educational and cultural travel.

San Francisco
San Francisco

Study politics in Washington, experience the vibrant cultures of New York and San Francisco or take your group to the birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll and trace musical history through Memphis. Our itineraries are tailor-made to suit the needs of your group, whatever subject you wish to base your trip around or which ever city your group would prefer to travel to, our team will create the best possible programme for your group. We have sampled a few cities to open up your imagination to the opportunities that await you in the USA.

New York

They don’t come any bigger than the Big Apple. Experience world-class museums, huge statues, even bigger buildings and some outrageous excess. New York is a densely-packed mass of humanity, but the city’s hyperactive rush keeps drawing more and more people to it. A few of its attractions are unsurpassable, like the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Central Park and Times Square to name just a few. It doesn’t really matter what you do or where you go in New York because the city itself is an exhilarating experience!

Suggested subjects: General Culture, Politics, Arts, Fashion, and Leisure & Tourism

San Francisco

One of the most colourful and sophisticated cities in the United States. San Francisco will offer you an array of attractions from the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge, considered to be one of the seven wonders of the modern world to the notorious island prison of Alcatraz. The diversity of culture that San Francisco has to offer will make for a fabulous trip.

New York
New York


Within this diamond shaped city, visitors of all ages and nationalities will find the nation’s capital, a wealth of museums and cosmopolitan flair. A fun and interactive lesson in American History, Washington is a city where ordinary people live, work and play, a city of beautiful neighbourhoods where the federal government and its machinery are merely backdrops to life.

Suggested Subjects: Politics, History – Battlefields


A city steeped in history and culture, Memphis was at the forefront of Martin Luther-King’s civil rights struggle and at the very beginning of Rock ‘n’ Roll! A centre for music, culture and American history. Your group will love the vibrancy of this city. The Deep South is like nowhere else in the USA. A land of Cotton, molasses and tobacco; Civil War battlefields and Civil Rights conflicts. And, of course, the home of Elvis!!
