Travel that Intersects with Education, Fun and Sustainability

Our shared experience as tour managers for educational groups in Europe gives us in depth knowledge of how to plan and execute the most fulfilling trips for young people. Whether you’re a school or university, we can organise everything from planning the itinerary right up until the last day of your trip. We customise itineraries to suit every learning objective. Whilst travelling with us you will not only visit famous landmarks, but also experience local culture and travel off the beaten path.

On our tours, we will prioritise eco-friendly activities, discover local culture, and try organic products, ensuring that you are contributing to local businesses and economies, as well as preserving the environment. Have a look at some of the activities we offer for more inspiration.

Berlin & Beyond

Brandenburg is famous for abandoned buildings; you will begin your tour by exploring a former tuberculosis sanitorium. Take off your shoes and walk through the ‘barefoot’ forest, after which you will walk on a wooden footpath above the trees and get a view over the forests of Brandenburg and even a glimpse at Berlin’s TV tower, 60 km away! Take an adventure through the forest by bike towards the pretty town of Caputh and enjoy a campfire by the lake. The next day we will visit the only home Einstein ever built in Germany, which will prove for a relatively interesting morning! We’ll hop back on our bikes to the town of Potsdam and discover the fascinating history of the Hohenzollern family on a guided sightseeing tour. The following day we will cycle through the famous Grünewald forest into Germany’s vibrant capital. Get your finger on the pulse of this exciting city with a street art tour followed by a workshop to learn the art of graffiti. After your first night in Berlin we will experience Berlin through Syrian eyes on a Refugee Voices walking tour through the historic center followed by lunch at a Syrian family-run restaurant. This afternoon we will learn about Berlin’s green side during a guided tour of green spaces and projects. End your stay in Berlin with a local community cook-out.
