Custom-Designed Tours

Inspire your students with a tour made just for them

While EF offers 250+ itineraries to choose from, we know that sometimes you just want to take matters into your own hands. After all, no one knows how to engage your students better than you do! That’s why we have a team of Itinerary Specialists dedicated to bringing your travel dreams to life. From simply tweaking an existing itinerary to completely designing a tour from scratch, an expertly crafted, custom-designed tour is just a conversation (or two) away.

Here’s how we bring your perfect tour to life

Determine if customization is right for you

If you’re someone who’s had a fair amount of travel experience (personally or with EF!) and you want to create a tour from scratch, you might be a candidate for a custom tour. (And if you’re not interested in any of these options, one of our 250+ existing itineraries might be just what you’re looking for.)

Meet your team

If you decide to go custom, we’ll match you with your very own Tour Consultant, a.k.a an expert on your school district who’s perfectly positioned to help you build your travel program. Then, they’ll connect you with one of our Itinerary Specialists—the people who’ll put together your trip—so you can fill them in on all your customized tour ideas.

Design your unique itinerary

Together, you and your Itinerary Specialist will create a custom tour itinerary—whether that means combining multiple itineraries, adding special activities or destinations that align with what you’re doing in class, or designing a program from the ground up, like one of our Group Leaders did with her literature-focused tour of England.

Tales from (customized) tours

Chris S. is a World History and Human Geography & Law teacher from Pennyslvania who’s customized over 10 tours with us. We could tell you why he loves creating personalized tours with our custom team, but we figured we’d let him speak for himself.

Customizing allows for creativity and to focus on specific sites—towns, cities, attractions—that have really appealed to my groups.
