WorldStrides, the educational travel and experiential learning company, has announced that G.E.T. Educational Tours has joined its portfolio. With the addition of G.E.T., WorldStrides continues to expand its global footprint and expertise in Australia, as international and domestic educational travel rebounds.
As a result of the partnership, G.E.T. will gain access to WorldStrides’ global operations network, and health and safety resources. It will continue to operate under the same brand, retaining all employees and maintaining its record as Australia’s first and longest operating educational tour provider. Founded in 1960, G.E.T. is led by Anne-Marie Mitchell, managing director, who has been with the company for 45 years and will remain on board.
“Since our humble beginnings as an outdoor educational camp for students, G.E.T. has evolved into an Australian leader in educational travel within the country and overseas,” said Mitchell. “Our vision is for every student and teacher to grow by safely exploring the world and experiencing all its diversity. WorldStrides is the company to help us do that.”
WorldStrides is well-established as the market leader in Australia and offers a range of domestic and international educational student travel programs.
“We are delighted to add G.E.T. to the WorldStrides family,” said Bob Gogel, president and CEO of WorldStrides. “As we expand our Australian footprint, we also see growing demand for travel to the region from K-12 to college students for experiential learning and travel across our portfolio of programs, including the [FIFA Women's World Cup] in 2023. The addition of G.E.T. will further this momentum as educational travel rebounds.”
