About Us

We’re Your Educational Group Tour & Travel Planning Experts

Educational Travel Service, Inc. (ETS) is a professional travel services company, with an emphasis on arranging educational group tours that include opportunities for cultural engagement and learning. We’re pros when it comes to school trip planning and custom group travel – we can take you anywhere in the world. Some of our recent trips include Southeast Asia, Africa, France, Italy and Australia.

Founded in 1988, ETS is operated by three highly skilled travel consultants – Jan Cronin, Lee Hoehn and Tim Kahn – who also all have backgrounds in education. Our team’s unique combination of experience means we are able to offer our clients the best educational trip planning services possible.

We’re Passionate About Educational Travel

We believe travel should be an adventure – it should be a rich cultural experience. Our years of experience allow us to craft one-of-a-kind itineraries that couple exceptional destinations with opportunities to immerse yourself in the culture, and learn what it means to be a local, if only for a few hours. (If all you want to do is watch from a bus, we’re probably not the best travel consultants for you, but we’d be happy to point you in the right direction.)

We work with individuals, as well as schools, colleges, universities, and special interest groups. We can develop theme trips and more. And because of our education and teaching backgrounds, we are experts at integrating classroom curricula. Learning through travel is an incredibly deep and rewarding experience, and we know just how to make the connections from the classroom to the real world.

Our goal at ETS is to make each trip educational, memorable, and affordable (we charge no membership or registration fees, and we’ll work within your budget). Our coordinators provide the personal details that assure smooth traveling. We offer a wide variety of exciting itineraries, and we can always work with you to design an itinerary that meets your individual needs.

We can’t wait to make your travel dreams a reality! Contact us today to get started.
