The Vistas Experience
We know France.
Vistas In Education and its French sister company, APEC Voyages, believe in the value of the student travel experience. Since 1976 we have organized teacher-led student travel programs to only “la belle France”.
Experienced and Professional
We are small, experienced, professional and well-connected. We are responsive and we take a personal interest in the success of your student travel program.
Before you travel, the Minneapolis-based VIE staff works with you from initial inquiry, through itinerary planning and travel documentation, right up to departure.
Upon your arrival in France, APEC staff meets you and is available throughout your trip. The experienced APEC staff is uniquely qualified to deliver access to special events and France’s historic and cultural sites and quickly adjust tour schedules to avoid potential issues.
The Family Stay component of VIE student travel takes the traditional home stay to the next level with total immersion into the French language and culture. Each student is placed in a vetted, volunteer family with an age peer host sibling allowing for immediate insertion into an age-appropriate social milieu.
With over forty years of experience, VIE will work with you to customize a travel program that meets your academic goals, travel schedule and budget.
