International Travel

Why travel with the World Affairs Council?


The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia has been organizing Travel the World Lifelong Learning Tours for more than 35 years. Their trips offer all the highlights of touring plus access to political leaders and local experts who give behind-the-scenes views and briefings that make these trips unique.

With a reputation as being one of the nation's leading forums, the Council has established connections around the globe to be able to offer members access that they can't get when traveling alone or on other tours. Council leaders who are able to draw on their expertise in the fields of diplomacy, journalism or academia accompany some tours as lecturers providing added value to the  overall travel experience.
