Explorica by WorldStrides creates educational tours full of authentic, interactive learning experiences that connect teachers and students to the world.
While on tour, 3-4 students under the age of 23 and of the same gender will be sharing a room. These students will be from the entire group unless otherwise noted. For teacher-led tours, the Program Leaders will assign these roommates. Hotel rooms are furnished with either single or double beds; single beds sleep just one person and double beds may be shared. Participants aged 22 and younger may choose to upgrade to stay in a twin room for an additional $45 per night ($70 per night on cruises and ferries). The deadline for requests for twin room upgrades is 60 days before departure. For more information on accommodations, visit the get ready section of our website.
You may wish to spend time at your destinations before or after the scheduled tour. The fee for this service is $145 if requested upon enrollment. If requested after enrollment and up to 130 days before departure, the fee is $195. Additional fees may apply if requested between 129–90 days before departure. This option is not available less than 90 days before departure. We will change your airline ticket, and you are responsible for all accommodations, meals, and transfers before and after the scheduled tour. Because we will arrange your airline tickets separately from your group’s, we cannot guarantee that you will share any of the same flights, and additional fees may apply.
You may sign up with an individual stay ahead and/or stay behind online, by selecting these options on the “Change Selections” page. Should you wish to mail us a paper application, please mark your application accordingly to reflect this option.
