According to Explorica:
Q: What do you feel sets Explorica apart from other educational tour groups?
A: What sets Explorica apart undoubtedly is our tremendous value. We offer a top notch program for less than the other leading educational tour companies. We also have unparalleled customer service from our staff. I am confident that is why our customers keep coming back to Explorica.
Q: Does Explorica offer things that other student travel companies don't?
A: Our use of technology to streamline the tour planning process is something that other companies don't offer at the same level as Explorica. In particular, we are the only company to offer a one-of-kind Tour Diary. During the tour, the Tour Director takes photos of the group, writes up the day's highlights, and posts it all on the group's personal website. Parents, family and friends back home can log on to see regular updates and photos while the tour is in progress. Not only is this a great way for those at home to share in the adventure, it gives peace of mind to parents that all is well with the group and their child. This is something completely unique to Explorica.
Q: Does Explorica offer specials periodically?
A: We run incentives for teachers (and sometimes students) basically on a monthly basis. The new incentives and specials can always be viewed on our homepage.
Your About Guide recommends Explorica very highly. Other differences between Explorica's services and industry standards include putting only three students in a room as opposed to four or more, online room selection pre-trip, full European breakfasts and high speed trains and ferries as opposed to cheaper (and slower) options, though Explorica's trip prices are guaranteed to be the lowest available. All in all, Explorica is the best educational tour group company out there!
