The TripAdventures Difference

  • 100% Customized Tour
    We don’t believe in cookie cutter. Every trip is tailored to what your school wants to experience, and we go out of our way to make your trip something you can’t get elsewhere.
  • Authentic, local experiences
    Not just photo stops and sightseeing. We think your student deserves to see and experience something real and transformative for them. We travel like a local: we’ll take trains, ferries, walking the streets, and eat like a local. You won’t be tourists.
  • Better Quality, Better Price
    Central hotels. We don’t cheat on quality by staying an hour away from the cities, and yet we can offer a better price because we don’t spend any money on marketing. We run on word of mouth based on our quality, which means your money goes to the trip, not to office space and glossy brochures.
  • 20+ Years of Leading Student Tours
    Our entire team is made up of experienced student travel professionals who love what they do, and that shows in the tour.
