The MacScotts-2013Since the quality of education makes a life long difference, feel the difference of a Jeffersonian inspired tour.


Our mission is to offer educational and enriching travel experiences that enhance people's lives by opening a world of knowledge, discovery and in some way, help people to fulfilling their dreams. Based on this, we work to develop special and original itineraries for each trip. By conducting each day of your tour with passion, we bring to our customers, the best possible experience in every destination. This is a difference that is uniquely delivered by a unique company.


Whether you are learning about marine life in the Galapagos or the British Virgin Islands, or taking a hands on art experience in Tuscany, Italy or enjoying sketching and painting workshops in the Hudson River Valley, we are the ideal guide for your discoveries. If you want to better understand what is means to be an American, take a look at our flagship 10 day tour "Founding America" or sign up for our one day Washington DC tour that prepares you for the US Naturalization Exam.


The Travels is based in the Catskill Mountains of New York and operates tours all over the world. We offer educational tours geared towards the unique needs of home schooling families as well as families that want educationally based tours that are rich in content and ingenious in their teaching styles. Our homeschooling offerings have the added advantage of input from advisors with vast experience in curriculum development and certification by New York State Department of Education.


Andrea and I thank you for considering The Travels for your educational adventures. You are always most welcome!
