What Makes Us Unique

Dear Educator,

Imagine teaching Classics, Religion, Biblical Literature, Art, Archaeology and Philosophy at the actual sites in Greece , Turkey and Italy  that appear again and again as you explore your subject. Picture yourself and your students or study tour participants travelling from site to site with the monuments and museums of this region as your classroom!

You know, of course, how impressive first hand experience can be - and how much easier it is to learn, while you are having a good time doing it.  Let the scenic beauty and hospitable people of Eastern Mediterranean bring the cradle of civilization to life for you and your students!

Our goal is to design a custom tailored program to meet the individual needs of each group in order to create an exceptional and outstanding educational travel experience in Greece, Italy or Turkey.

The study tours we offer are educationally fulfilling,  while at  the same time  they  provide  plenty of time for relaxation, sightseeing and camaraderie. And this is a perfect time to travel in Greece, Turkey and Italy. Prices are currently the most reasonable, with the decline of the value of the Euro against the Dollar!

Take advantage of our offers !


We will be happy to work out a custom designed program to meet the individual needs of your group. 

We strive for a unique cultural experience with visits of new sites and museums, guest lecturers, qualified guides with degrees in Archeology and Cultural Management, carefully selected hotels with personal service and traditional style, professional drivers, special cross-religions events such as meeting with the Greek Orthodox archiepiscopate or visit local nunnery with an exchange and dialogue of religious view, cultural events such as attendance to an Ancient  Greek Tragedy (in English) followed by dialogue with the actors or a folk-dancing workshop with traditional style costumes and demonstration.
