Preparing For Your Tour


What to pack for an Engaged Education tour?

Congratulations on choosing an Engaged Education tour! To ensure you have a seamless and enjoyable experience, here are some essential steps to help you prepare for your upcoming adventure!

What to pack

Pack smart for your educational tour! Our what-to-pack guide provides you with a complete packing list to ensure you have everything you need for an enriching and successful experience. Don’t forget to check on the weather reports for your Engaged Education destination.


Don't forget your essential documents! If you are traveling abroad bring your passport (valid at least 6 months after travel dates), identification card, visa, or permits (if applicable). For more detailed information regarding these documents contact your local embassy webpage.


Most of our Engaged Education tours have the majority of the meals covered, so we recommend travelers bring enough money for, snacks, souvenirs, and emergencies. It's advisable to have around $10-$30 a day depending on personal spending habits and destination. Tipping is a common practice, but completely up to your discretion!
