About this trip

Note** Itinerary Subject to Change**

Enjoy an excursion to experience a school in Egypt and visit some of the world’s most precious ancient sights. Meet and work with Egyptian teachers while aiding an impoverished local school/learning center that was created for Sudanese displaced children. Visit an Egyptian run and owned American International School. Traverse the Nile River, visit the vibrant Valley of the Kings, explore the grand Giza Pyramids, and savor the beauty of the stunning Sphinx. Sign up to spend your summer in a country dating to the time of the pharaohs, where you will expand your cultural and educational expertise.

PD CertificatIon Given: 25 hours of Professional Development

Schools:  Egypt is a part of our Ancient Civilization Program and is a little different in that we do a couple of school visits.  You will visit a variety of schools for a couple of hours learning about their system, and the importance of education in their culture.

Terrain: Lots of stairs and uneven terrain.

Our hope is you will have an experience where you should be able to find a nugget or two to bring back to your classroom, and maybe even a classroom connection.

I had a wonderful experience on this trip with Bookbag Tours! It was well organized and I was surrounded by amazing views, food, and people! My favorite part was scuba diving in Santorini. How many people get to brag about that?! I'm glad I brought my walking shoes- I got over 10,000 steps in everyday LOL. I enjoyed utilizing the public transportation, but for a new traveler it can be overwhelming. Throughout the trip, we immersed ourselves with all that Greece has to offer- and it offers SO MUCH! Each day we learned something new. I would highly recommend the Greece trip and Bookbag tours!

I had an amazing time! We saw so many beautiful places. The hotels were nice and all the leaders and other teachers were wonderful! I am so glad I was able to go on this trip and I would definitely travel with bookbag tours again!

The trip to France with BBT was an absolute dream come true! I had an amazing experience, including everything from the travel arrangements, the group of educators, the food, the schools, the side trips, and the group leaders. This trip was a once in a lifetime experience and I am so glad that BBT was able to make it a reality (even through multiple reschedules!). Communication was great and I always felt prepared for whatever was coming next. Meeting a whole group of new teachers (both from the states and from France) was truly the best part of the trip. I made connections I will treasure for a lifetime!

I did not know what to expect when my daughter suggested that we join Bookbag Tours for a trip to Finland. I had never traveled out of the country before so it sounded exciting. It was postponed due to covid for 2 years but it was well worth the wait. Traveling with Bookbag tours removed so much travel stress that all I had to do was enjoy. Shaunda was an amazing leader. She kept our group where we needed to be, when we needed to be there. Petteri was an amazing home town leader, host and teacher. We really got the opportunity to not just learn about the education system, but about the culture of Finland as well. No question was off limits, and we had a lot! Traveling with a like minded group was so much fun. I highly recommend exploring the world with Bookbag Tours.
