• CHA Educational Tours' Fall Saver Program Makes Student Group Travel Abroad More Accessible - 12/1/2009

Teachers Have Until Dec. 21 to Book 2010 Summer Travel & Save.

The world is vast, but educational tours can help shrink it down to within the grasp of high school and college students and their teachers.

While Fall is when most students and teachers settle back into the classroom grind, it’s also time to begin planning summer educational journeys. Philadelphia-based CHA (Cultural Heritage Alliance) Educational Tours is making student group travel more accessible, extending its 2010 Fall Saver Program until December 21. Educators planning trips for May through October 2010 can save up to $100 off regular tour prices, giving them the opportunity to increase the size of their travel group while offering savings to their students.

Educational tours serve as a “living classroom” and are particularly useful for foreign language, history and literature students who want to broaden their knowledge beyond textbooks. As a result, educational tour operators are as concerned with expanding knowledge and enhancing understanding as they are with recreation and sightseeing. In fact, CHA Educational Tours’ co-founders were both high school foreign language teachers.

“Students can only gain so much in the classroom, whether it’s language, cultural or political study,” says CHA Educational Tours President and Co-founder Domenica Falcione. “They must travel to a land to fully understand it, and to gain knowledge, they need more than just a sightseeing itinerary. That’s where we at CHA can help teachers plan a journey that is more meaningful to their students.”

CHA Educational Tours offers over 130 comprehensive itineraries covering destinations throughout Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia and the South Pacific. A large part of its success, Falcione says, is due to its commitment to quality and affordability for its student travelers and its network of professional, multi-lingual tour directors and expert city guides to conduct in-depth sightseeing.
