OUR HISTORY

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.

Testimonials

Russell Russel |

The trip was amazing because we didn’t just see places; we really got to experience places.  We met the local people and artisans and we learned what was important to them and their community.  This is definitely something I know that I couldn’t have done on my own.
