The president of Global Journeys was born in northern Italy and is available to help you create a unique travel opportunity. The possibilities you choose will usually include indulging in culinary delights and immersing in the abundance of Italy’s rich cultural heritage…take a step back in time while walking the streets of Rome, re-live the atmosphere of the mighty Coliseum, behold the statue of David or the gothic Duomo in Florence, hike the trails of the Cinque Terre that will astound you with the beauty of their cliff villages, cruise the canals of Venice in a gondola, or ascend the leaning tower of Pisa. Fill yourself to the brim with art and history and then soak up the sun on the Amalfi coast or head to Italian Alps during the ski season. Then, sprinkle the magic that we are really good at… exploring places places that are not often visited by tourists that define the style that is Italy…investigate Trieste and its magnificent harbor and cross over into Slovenia and Croatia for a very unique visit, stay in Capriva del Friuli, a small dot on the map that is entrancing, and…let’s make up the rest together for a truly enriching experience. The young people in his presence reach goals they previously thought unattainable. more…
When you travel with us on an India student travel program you will be captured by this country’s incredible cultural richness. Modern India is home both to the tribal people with their anachronistic lifestyle and to the sophisticated urban jetsetter. It is a land where temple elephants exist amicably with the microchip. Its ancient monuments are the backdrop for the world’s largest democracy where atomic energy is generated and industrial development has brought the country within the world’s top ten nations. Today, fishermen along the country’s coastline fashion simple fishing boats in a centuries old tradition while, a few miles away motor vehicles glide off conveyor belts in state-of-the-art factories. India can be a challenging country for students to visit. You will be accompanied every step of the way by Kay LatchmanSing, co-owner of Global Journeys. She is of Indian heritage and knows the country well. I have watched students, teachers, and even administrators… more

WHY CHOOSE US
What sets us apart from other international educational travel companies can be summed up in four statements.
We have lots of personal experience in the educational arena. The president of Global Journeys was a middle school teacher, a school counselor and an administrator. He started an alternative school in Littleton, CO focused on student empowerment and leadership. He will help design the trips and accompany each group to their destination. Most travel companies who offer educational travel know the travel business, but do not have the knowledge of the specific vision and needs of educational institutions. What works well on educational trips is quite different than what sightseeing or tour travel companies offer. Our expertise is in designing and delivering educational travel programs that are meaningful, effective and transferrable to actual life situations.
Secondly, we don’t have packaged deals or offerings. All of our programs are only designed after consulting with you. Then and only then, we design a quality travel experience that is exactly what you have always wanted for your students.
Thirdly, because we limit our number of international trips to ten per year, we give you lots of personal attention and accompany you on every step of the way.
And very importantly, our international travel is based on safe and productive interaction between the travelers and the people we visit. Our commitment is to tread lightly as we travel, be in service to others, and return as more experienced global leaders.
