Travel with EF Go Ahead Tours

Where new adventures meet familiar benefits

Welcome to EF Go Ahead Tours, we offer over 175 guided tours across all seven continents so you can keep checking places off of your bucket list. And what’s even better? Our itineraries and amenities are geared toward adult travelers. (We’re talking Food & Wine Tours, safaris, and more!) You’re already a travel pro from your experience as a Group Leader, and we think you’d be a great Group Coordinator for Go Ahead. Join us on tour to continue earning Global Points. You'll also keep your loyalty status and still earn a free trip for every six travelers you bring with you. Interested? We thought you might be!

Start planning your trip

My husband and I did student tours for years. We just returned from Italy with our small group of adult travelers. Loved it—no room checks! Leisurely dinners (with cocktails). No counting constantly to make sure you have everyone. It felt more like a vacation and less like work.”


—Group Coordinator Kimberly

Why travel with us

Free tours for every six travelers booked, Global Points, and trips you won’t find elsewhere are just a few reasons you’ll want to book your trip.

Continue to rack up points in our Global Rewards program

When you become a Group Coordinator, you keep collecting Global Points and maintain your status. Spend your points on Convention Tours, other Go Ahead trips, electronics, on-tour experiences, and more.


Earn the industry’s best rewards, one free tour for every six group members you bring

Just like with EF Educational Tours, for every six travelers you bring, you’ll earn a free spot—and there’s no limit to the number of free spaces you can earn or tours you can take.


Meet, greet, and don’t forget to explore on Convention Tours

We design these exclusive trips just for Group Coordinators. They include guided sightseeing tours, immersive activities, and plenty of time to swap everything from travel stories to recruiting strategies.

FAQ

How many travelers do I need to recruit to earn a free place?

With Go Ahead Tours, you’ll get the same great 6:1 free place ratio you enjoy on EF Educational Tours. That means for every six travelers you bring, you’ll earn one free spot on your tour to use however you like.

How will Go Ahead Tours help me recruit travelers?

When you join Go Ahead Tours as a Group Coordinator, you’ll be paired with a dedicated Tour Consultant and Account Manager who’ll help you with every step of the process. We’ll also make you personalized materials to help spread the word, including posters, business cards, and your own webpage.

Was this information helpful?
Will I still earn Global Points?

Yes! You’ll enjoy the same loyalty rewards you get for recruiting travelers with EF Educational Tours, plus your status will carry over on any trips you take with Go Ahead Tours.

What makes your tours different from EF Educational Tours?

Our trips both share the benefits of EF’s global network, educational heritage, and local-everywhere expertise—but Go Ahead Tours are designed for adult travelers. That means you’ll enjoy more freedom on tour, have beer or wine included with dinner, stay in upgraded hotels, and have groups that are always fewer than 38 travelers.

Don’t want to bring a group? No problem!

You can sign up as an individual traveler and pay the listed price or use Global Points to travel.
