Welcome!

Mastering Washington, D.C. & learning the uniqueness of student / youth travel are some of the most important skills that a Tour Director & Guide can have in their tool belt. This program provides unique opportunities for learning!

We have three opportunities to fit your needs and/or schedule.

For those needing to learn the logistics, commentary, and how to run a successful student tour of Washington D.C., the 5-day class is perfect for you.

For those who know the city well but want to learn how to take static facts and turn them into learning opportunities, the 3-day class is what you are looking for!

If you need a refresher, or you need to learn the logistics and commentary of a Washington, D.C. City Tour, the 2-day pre class is for you.
