Parent Perspectives on Educational Travel

Teachers, see why parents love travel for their kids.

Changes in communication “Anyone with a teenage son knows how hard it is to get them to tell you anything. After he returned home, he spent the next two days telling me all kinds of amazing facts he learned on this trip!” And true personal growth “I couldn’t have imagined the impact this experience would have on my son, but he returned refreshed, smiling, and so appreciative of the culture he was immersed in. It is just the springboard he needed for the beginning of his ‘adult life,’ and I’m certain he will travel the world more thanks to this trip and the magnificent job by EF Educational Tours.” In summary… “My children came away with an experience that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.” --- Help bring mind-expanding, door-opening, best-day-ever moments like these to life for your students with EF Educational Tours.

Does educational travel really make a difference in the lives of students? Here at EF, we think so. But, as self-proclaimed travel-obsessed education fanatics, we can see how we might sound a little biased. So don’t take our word for it—take it from parents who have seen the positive impact of travel on their children firsthand. Because, as everyone knows, it’s hard for a kid to get anything past their parents. Especially when that thing is newfound confidence, broadened perspectives, or increased curiosity about the world—and their place in it. (Or unfolded laundry. Parents really have a radar for that one.)

From small steps with not-so-small impacts

“My child learned to try new foods and be open to differences.”

To big moments with even bigger outcomes

“Definitely the highlight of my son’s entire life. He learned so much about history and about the world.”

Parent perspectives on educational travel

Travel has the power to inspire change in the lives of students

“My child has grown as a person in many ways—his eyes are now opened to the world and his horizons are broadened. He made friends with other people he never may have otherwise, and his independence and confidence sky-rocketed.”

Changes in perspective

“My son had an amazing experience on this trip. There was a lot of cultural enrichment, and it opened his eyes to what life is like in other countries.”

Changes in plans

“My daughter now thinks she would like to live in Europe when she grows up! This experience has presented her with a newfound confidence, and I am so thankful for that gift.”
