What to Expect

What to expect on our School Expeditions

From the day you contact us to the time your school group arrives home, we provide the best quality services to ensure that everyone feels safe and well informed. Here’s what you can expect on a World Youth Adventures school expedition.


You will be met by our local ground crew from the airport to ensure a smooth start to your journey..

We only utilise trusted accommodations which we know to be clean, in a safe location and are regularly inspected by local authorities. 


Accommodations are usually on a twin-share basis unless otherwise requested. 


When camping your group will be provided with all group camping equipment including tents, quality sleeping bags, sleeping mats, eating utensils, kit bags as well as three hearty meals per day prepared by our trained cooks in a hygienic and controlled environment.

In the cities breakfasts are usually served in hotels. Lunches maybe picnic style or, along with dinners, in carefully selected restaurants. On trek our cooks have been trained to ensure they provide meals appropriate for the palates of the group with a mix of local and western dishes.

We believe local guides provide the best experience. Their local knowledge is unparalleled in terms of interpreting the natural and cultural environments, outlining the history of a region, engaging local dialogue and also re-arranging services if required. 


Many of our local guides have worked for our company for a decade or longer. They are first aid trained, experienced, passionate about their country and we have the utmost confidence in their ability to provide an experience for your school better than any western guide can.

Depending on the itinerary the group may use a variety of transport, from trains, planes, buses to rickshaws. 


We only use trusted transport providers and always use private buses. Using private buses not only ensures we can control the safety of the service it also means the group is not taking seats away from locals who are in more need of the local services.

  • a certificate for completing the Community Project as well as before and after photos
  • a plaque will be erected at the site if the Community Projects, naming their school and year the project was completed.

If itinerary design was an art form our work would be hanging in galleries around the world. At the very least it is most certainly a science and we have years of destinational experience to ensure your itinerary is safe and achievable.


When it comes to travelling at altitude we always allow ample days to allow for proper acclimatisation as well as to allow for inclement weather.
