For many families the summer represents a time to spend time together as well as apart to experience new adventures. Teen tours offer teenagers the opportunity to experience travel and culture with peers in a safe and fun environment. And trips are typically organized by established touring companies, providing your child with a safe, supervised trip to many locations both abroad and domestic.

Companies differ, of course, and the rustic appeal of an adventurous US teen tour whereby rock climbing, kayaking and high ropes are highlights, may not appeal to all teens. If not, you may want to look into a European or South American tour. Most companies mix a little adventure with travel and the level of travel can include 5 star hotel and resorts or the stay at the college dormitory. How long are teen tours? This again will vary; however, 21 to 45 days is typical.

Compare Teen Tours and Companies

There are a number of ways to begin the search for that perfect travel tour for your teen. The most obvious one is by referral. Ask other parents, teens, family members, friend or associates. If you don't know anyone who has done this kind of summer program, then it's time to search online where there are a number of both directories and touring companies. Directories provide a number of referrals and you search often by state and then view the different companies in your area. Most touring companies have websites at this point, so buy getting leads from the directories you can then go directly to their site.
