Many a traveller has lost themselves in the glamorous streets of Paris, the city of love; or in the pearlescent heights of the Swiss Alps overlooking fields of green. Maybe an enormous bowl of mouth-watering ragu enjoyed al fresco is more your scene? Whatever your flavour, there’s something for everyone in Second Nature’s vast array of International Tours to Europe and the UK! Our local guides are ambassadors for their respective countries and provide a uniquely personal perspective on the places we visit so that your students come home impassioned global citizens.
Our International Tours for school and university groups are all-inclusive, affordable and fully customised. Tours to Europe and the UK are generally facilitated with a cultural, historical, environmental, tourism, design technology or language focus depending on a school or university’s preferences.
Cultural Programs spend time exploring the ideologies, history, customs, arts and foods that differentiate countries visited. They encourage interaction with local peoples and expose students to different modes of living.
History Programs explore ruins of the ancient past. They trace the origins of some of Europe’s most famous cities through revolutions, wars, pandemics, icons and trends to deepen student comprehension of popular culture and identity.
Environmental Programs concentrate on immersion and adventure in exceptional natural environments. They allow contextual exploration of Environmental Management principles and deliver a strong conservation message.
Tourism Programs focus on the Tourism Industry including drivers, challenges and innovations. They investigate major tourist attractions from an economic and environmental perspective to evaluate the sustainability of current operations.
Design Technology Programs investigate Sustainable Development in the context of megacities like London and Paris. They showcase innovations in architecture, agriculture and tourism.
Language Programs emphasise complete immersion in a chosen language and culture. Students are accommodated in a homestay arrangement with excursions to famous landmarks. These programs are suitable for preliminary and advanced learners.
