The three main priorities whilst on tour with CATW are fun, discovery and safety. All of our groups, with a priority to our young travelling groups, welfare and supervision are significantly factored into the planning of your tour.

Our tour costs and fees are based on the number of participants in a tour group. The average size of a CATW tour group is 50. However, we’ve taken groups to all corners of the globe with student numbers less than 50 members.
The more travellers in your group the more you save. Our largest tour group was 250 members!

We can customise tours for smaller groups for any duration. Our longest “Odyssey” tour was 42 days Around The World. On average our tours are 12-21 days.

Particularly for school groups, our programs can integrate cultural and social interaction through hosted stays. If you have an international sister school that you would like to visit, we can make the arrangements for you.

Over the years we have perfected just the right balance of educational content, sightseeing and leisure time. Our programs and tours are structured so that each day is a memorable experience.
