I could not ask for a better company to work for than Nations Classroom.  It has been an Amazing Experience.  Just to see the loyalty, hard work and dedication that goes into each tour to change the lives of so many children to see the world of travel.  Nations always go the extra mile to make sure the students have an unforgettable experience that they will remember for years to come.

I absolutely love taking the time to get to know teachers and their vision for their tour and partnering with them to develop a custom learning opportunity for their students. Of course, the greatest reward is getting to see them happy on tour when it all comes together and we all enjoy seeing their students have a great experience.
