Student Educational Tours

Group at Lincoln Memorial

SET is family-owned and operated, combining over 100 years as Washingtonians, 26+ years high school teaching experience, and 17 years in the group travel industry. The executives of SET combine their unique hands-on experiences and Capital area knowledge to diligently create and manage professional school group tours throughout the region.  

SET is headquartered in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to effectively serve east coast history rich destinations.  However, we've certainly customized trips to other U.S. cities as well (Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Nashville, Los Angeles, San Francisco to name a few, see our Destinations page).

Our dedication to trip quality and safety for all participants is second to none.  Substantial experience with customized itineraries and attention to detail assures trip leaders of a worry-free trip (see our Services page).  Importantly, our boutique-style operation allows us to cater to your individual group on tour, a customer service philosophy limited today to small-town service shops.  Our passion in providing elite service is what sets us apart!  As a result, group leaders partner with SET year after year...making their trips an annual event.  SET is simply the best student travel provider on the planet!

We look forward to providing our premium group travel services to your group.

Happy Touring !
