At Brightspark Travel, we believe there is nothing more rewarding than creating global citizens by impacting a student's life and opening their eyes to new horizons. Educational travel fosters independent learning, expands world views, increases a student's likelihood of going to college, and inspires career choices.
Brightspark employees are always eager to travel to exciting domestic and international destinations. Traveling is embedded in our souls, so when school is out for the summer, our team can be found exploring the world! Check out a few highlights, from places our they have visited so far to destinations they are looking forward to visiting.

"Kyrgyzstan is the best place to go if you enjoy hiking or outdoor excursions. It's a very beautiful country! Near lake Issyk-Kul, some places were green and grassy, while others were rustic and rocky. It's the type of place where you can camp in the middle of nowhere, gaze at the majestic mountains and unplug."

"I went on an amazing hike! The best thing about my trip was relishing in the solitude of nature and pushing myself beyond what I thought I could do. I sincerely enjoyed the company of my friends."
Renee, Tour Consultant
"I'm looking forward to an epic fifteen day adventure from the capital city of Hanoi through the historical beach town of Hoi An, all the way down to historical Ho Chi Minh. I will be exploring tropical rainforests, some of the world’s largest caves and exploring war time tunnels. I will also be hanging out in the imperial city of Hue, riding motorcycles along the spectacular Hai Van Pass! I've heard there's nothing better than wandering the streets of UNESCO-protected Hoi An and relaxing on the beautiful beaches of South Vietnam. My journey will come to an end in vibrant Ho Chi Minh, described as a city that breathes life and vitality into all who visit."

"I'm going to Quebec City, also known as La Vieille Capitale. On vacations, I generally go with the flow, however for this trip I'm planning on going to the Fêtes de la Nouvelle France!"

"We rented a cabin in the mountains. Watching the sunrise over the mountains and the peace and quiet of nature was very relaxing."
Mary, Sales Manager
Location: Playa del Carmen, Mexico
"We traveled with twenty family members ages 2-71. The best part of the trip was sharing our travel experiences with each other. Some had never flown, never been to Mexico or never been to an all-inclusive resort."
Tracy, Operations Manager

"We plan on traveling with ten people in a fifteen passenger van. It’s been my dream for a few years to rent a house on the beach and I finally get to do that! Looking forward to spending time with my family."
