Explorica advantages

Explorica offers an unparalleled experience for teachers and students alike. We invite you to experience the Explorica difference.


Explorica tours provide the best value in the industry.

  • Guaranteed best prices
    Our long-standing industry relationships allow us to get you more for your dollar, and we pass the savings on to you with the guaranteed best prices in the industry. And if you happen to find a better price somewhere else, we’ll beat it.
  • More inclusions
    All Explorica tours are fully inclusive, meaning we provide everything you need for a remarkable trip: flights, hotels, meals, transportation, entrance fees to attractions, guided sightseeing tours and more. We believe you and your students should be able to experience everything you came to experience without being faced with additional costs after signup.
  • Superior quality
    While standard inclusions like meals and hotels may appear comparable across leading tour operators, the small details make a big difference. Hotels closer to city centers, better meals and more activities are just a few reasons why teachers choose Explorica.


Explorica offers the most flexibility in educational travel.

  • Customized service
    We’re known as the most flexible and responsive company in educational travel because we proactively solicit input from our group leaders, and act upon on their feedback. Whether it’s a special request for your tour or a special payment arrangement for one of your students—we work with you, one-on-one, to meet your individual needs. At Explorica, our focus is you.
  • Customizable tours
    Explorica offers a world of customization options. From small adjustments like swapping an activity or hotel, to building an entirely customized tour from the ground up, we make it happen. We even let you edit your tour yourself, if that’s your style: our Instant Tour Customizer lets you add, remove or upgrade hotels, meals and more at the click of a button with live pricing.
  • Exclusive travel options
    To meet the diverse needs of our group leaders we also provide many unique travel options you won’t find anywhere else, including:

From recruitment resources and a network of teacher mentors, to informative webinars and trainings, we provide the support you need for an incredible trip.
  • Industry-best tour directors
    On tour, your experienced Explorica tour director guides your group every step of the way.

They’re fluent in your destination’s languages and are always one step ahead managing trip logistics, so you can relax and enjoy the tour with your students.
