One of the most enjoyable ways to study is to travel to some of the great sites that have contributed to the development of Western Civilization. Slides are good, but being there is better; so for the past 30+ years, Gentrain has offered trips to the pyramids (both Egyptian and Maya/Aztec), ancient Athens, Rome, Venice, London, Chicago, New York City and other significant sites both foreign and domestic.
Phil Nash, who was responsible for developing the Gentrain program, provided wise advice concerning the philosophy of travel study. "Do not take 'off the shelf' itineraries," he said. Dr. Nash believed that the bottom line for any travel/study trip is always education. Good advice. Instructor/tour leaders customize each trip to reflect or expand upon the material covered in the Gentrain course.
So take a trip with Gentrain's traveling classroom. New tours are offered most semesters. Upcoming tours are shown below.
