Classical Educational Tours provides trips both stateside and overseas which complement and enhance the classically educated student. Known as The Grand Tour during the mid-17th century through the early 19th century, many students, mostly men, traveled through France, Italy and Great Britain, experiencing other cultures and studying the great works of art and architecture. The mission of Classical Educational Tours is to plan and offer trips which give the students experiential knowledge of the history, culture, art and geography which they are studying. And to have a fun time, too! Tours are fast-paced and designed for small groups. We are not interested in mimicking typical school field trips which are generally chaotic and educationally worthless. Trips include in-depth visits of Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, Italy, the United Kingdom and France.
