OUR EXPERIENCE

The EdOdyssey Advantage!

EdOdyssey offers programs only in select countries where our team has deep connections and vast experience to guarantee our trips are authentic, global experiences that bring student far beyond tourist attractions and deep into a country's culture, cuisine, traditions, and customs.

ALL-INCLUSIVE

Our trips are jammed pack full of adventure-and it's all included. Our program costs include full local accommodations, round-trip airfare, local transportation, all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), the best travel insurance available, and a friendly, full-time bilingual tour director, who is always with the voyagers and in constant contact with the school and students' families. Students only have to pack their suitcases!

STRESS-FREE

Soup to nuts, EdOdyssey does everything. Really. We create the itinerary, book accommodations, supply packing lists, and help students apply for visas (if applicable). EdOdyssey also hosts a pre-departure meeting with students and parents (high school) in preparation for our odyssey. Then, after the trip, we help the voyagers share their experiences with their peers. Pre-daprture through return, it's all taken care of.

With more than two decades of experience in student travel, the EdOdyssey team is prepared for anything and everything. Our accommodations are all pre-apporved by EdOdyssey and your bilingual Tour Director is always with the group. Just in case, every voyager is covered with full, comprehensive travel insurance.

REFLECTIVE

Our programs are life-changing experiences, not bus tours! We know from experience that traveling is powerful and full of new sights, smells, taste, and sounds. So our odysseys always set aside time each day for individual and group reflections.
