What is CHA?

CHA stands for "Cultural Heritage Alliance." We were founded by two dedicated foreign language teachers in 1969. For over five decades, CHA has grown to become one of the most respected companies of its kind in the U.S. and is the oldest American-owned educational tour operator in existence today. Over one million teachers and students from across the United States have toured the world with CHA.

CHA's World Headquarters is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the city's historic center within walking distance from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. CHA also maintains a network of offices in major cities throughout Europe to handle the numerous operational details of our tours.

What is a CHA Educational Tour?

A CHA educational tour is a "living" classroom. Ideal for foreign language, history or literature students, CHA tours are designed for maximum educational and cultural exposure. Teachers accompany students overseas, assuring a constant connection between the sites visited and subjects studied in the classroom. Along with the teacher, a professional, multi-lingual Tour Director meets travelers at the airport and accompanies them throughout their tour, providing full-time guidance and assistance. Students return home from a CHA tour with a greater perspective on the world, a deeper appreciation of their own cultural heritage, and an increased enthusiasm for learning.

Who travels with CHA?

CHA arranges tours for teachers and students from across the United States. CHA works with high schools, colleges, and junior high schools as well as special interest groups such as choirs, church groups, sporting teams, and alumnae associations. CHA works directly with the teachers who form travel groups within their school community and who are responsible for chaperoning students while overseas.
