Learn About Our Company!


Back in 1998, two teachers were putting together a group trip from Indiana to Disney World and it hit home; all the time and effort it takes for a teacher to plan a quality trip for a large group isn’t easy. Jim Rider, one of those teachers, saw the importance in group travel and the possibilities in planning trips for a variety of tour seekers, and so Exploring America was born!


While our original focus began with educational trips, our horizons have broadened to include group cruises, performance trips, business trips, church trips, theme trips, volunteer trips, family reunions and other group trips. Along with expanding our trip offerings, we have grown on the internet as well. What started out as one main website has now morphed into six travel based websites to help meet our various range of clients across the globe.


Here at Exploring America, we respect that a trip or vacation with your group may be a once in a lifetime experience, and hassles are unwelcome! That being said, our standing goal is customer satisfaction! We customize all of our trips to meet your group’s needs while maintaining a high level of quality at a reasonable price. We never lump your group in with other groups traveling to the same location, like some agencies do. Your trip is completely private, catered to only you. We even offer an emergency contact 24/7 while you are on your trip, in case of any bumps along the road! You can rest easy knowing you are in the hands of your trusted team back home at Exploring America!
