In 2002, Clarkson College chose Ed-Ventures because we needed a company that would work closely with us to create highly customized tours that would appeal to both students and adult learners. As healthcare students and professionals, our travelers have unique needs and interests. Clarkson requires tours that are both culturally rich and meet certain learning objectives. Ed-Ventures has never disappointed. They are even able to set up hospital tours for us.
Thanks to Ed-Ventures’ ingenuity, flexibility, and attention to detail, each of Clarkson’s thirteen academic tours has been a rousing success. This success is marked by the fact that many students now travel with us as alumni, that our president and his wife are among our numerous repeat travelers, and that the trips now include students from two other area colleges. Clarkson’s Academic Travel Abroad program would be nowhere without Ed-Ventures to lead the way!

“Our company has enjoyed a wonderful partnership with Ed-Venture for over 20 years. In this industry when there are so many choices, that says a lot. We look forward to another 20 years!”
“Through our professional working relationship with Ed-Ventures, we have learned that Larry, Paul, Mark and the entire Ed-Ventures team have a very strong relationship with each of their customers. They provide dedicated service, sound destination advice and specialist knowledge, and it is a pleasure to work with a company that values the customer relationship as they do.”
Ed-Ventures has worked with us at Concordia College for some time, and I’ve had the pleasure of organizing four trips with them so far. Whether I’ve traveled with them to Europe or Turkey, they’ve been great in helping us make all our travels “trips of a lifetime.” They cover logistics, provide excellent local guides, and solve problems. They’re not just a travel agency, they’re friends who care.

“We have been working with Ed-Ventures for many years now and highly recommend them. They are committed to making each trip a huge success and we enjoy a high rate of repeat clients thanks to their excellent services. We also really appreciate the time they take to build a relationship with our company and the support, encouragement and valuable ideas they provide. The marketing materials they provide enable the sales process to be quick and efficient.“
“I used Ed-Ventures to put together a trip to Oberammergau in 2010 and I was very satisfied. My guests had a wonderful time! The trip was well-planned and Larry and his staff did a great job of leading the tour. He gave a lot of background information on the sites visited which enriched the travel experiences. I would definitely recommend Ed-Ventures to other companies interested in working together on one of their trips.”

Our experience with Ed-Ventures, Inc. has been excellent. We’re partnered with them on seven alumni trips and have two more planned for next year. They deliver exceptional service both before and during the trip. Their staff members work closely with our faculty leaders to ensure a top notch experience for our travelers. We’ve always been very pleased with the prices, local guides, accommodations and the food. I would highly recommend Ed-Ventures, Inc. for any of your alumni travel programs.

“As Manager of Travel Trends Ltd. in Lenexa, Kansas, I asked Ed-Ventures to conduct a 21-day tour of choir singers from my church singing in cathedrals in four countries in Europe. From the handling of the air components, ground transportation and professional guides we worked with along the way, to the wonderful hotel selections, restaurants and sightseeing excursions prepared for us...it was a dream tour. After 30+ years in the industry and watching the many changes that have taken place, I started my own home-based travel consulting business in 2009. As I continue to grow and seek group business, there is not a doubt in my mind that I will choose to work with the fine professional people of Ed-Ventures.”
