More than 50 years in the travel industry have given us a broad perspective of the world. In 1947, when more Americans wanted to start traveling abroad after World War II, ATA pioneered programs throughout Europe, from Norway to Portugal. In 1956, Academic Travel Abroad opened the doors to cultural and educational travel in the former USSR, and soon thereafter in China. For more than a half century, we have continued to offer innovative programs to new and favorite destinations to help travelers delve beyond the surface of these treasured places to explore the hidden riches unique to each.
