At World Words, we do all kinds of travel content writing, from web copy to destination guides, magazine articles to blog posts. But one of our favourite kinds of travel content to write is tour itineraries, as it gives us a chance to use a combination of our destination expertise, travel nous and research skills to do a deep-dive on destinations.

So when we were approached by the learning-focused travel agency Educational Journeys earlier this year, we were delighted. They wanted us to write a series of travel itineraries for Australian high school students. While the educational focus of the itineraries could vary from history to languages, they all required passionate and inspiring content that would appeal to teachers, parents and students alike. This was just the kind of challenge we relish.

Scroll forward to December 2019, and we have completed dozens of itineraries for Educational Journeys already, with more to come next year. For a taste of the work we are doing, scroll down for extracts from three itineraries…
