About us

Travel is our business.
People are our passion.

Welcome to our world.
We’re glad you’re here.

Since you’re here, we’re guessing we already know a thing or two about you: You’re curious, you have an appetite for adventure (good food, too!), you’re eager to see the world, and you’re always up for expanding your circle of friends. Did we nail it? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Why? Well, here’s where we tell you a little about us.

Go Ahead Staff

A family-owned company. A global community.

We’re an experiential group travel company, but we’re so much more than that, too. We’re also part of EF Education First, a family-owned, global community dedicated to opening the world through language, travel, cultural exchange, and academic programs. EF operates 600-plus schools and offices in more than 50 countries around the world, and is powered by an international team of 50,000 esteemed educators, savvy travel planners, top-of-their-field safety experts, dependable customer-support specialists, and so many other essential players.

For more than 55 years, we at Go Ahead have been fueled by constant curiosity and a natural desire to bridge cultures, communities, and people. We’ve been committed to making safe, authentic, life-changing travel experiences affordable and accessible. And we weave all of that into every tour we plan.

We don’t just plan travel.
We live and breathe it.

Our team of in-the-know travel experts crafts immersive, experiential itineraries in 87 countries and on all seven continents. Whatever kind of tour you decide to join—a rail journey through the Canadian Rockies, wining and dining in Argentina and Uruguay, a solo-friendly escape to Sicily—we won’t just show you the highlights. We’ll take you behind the scenes, inside private spaces, and off the beaten path, too. And we’ll introduce you to creative, enterprising, and passionate locals where they live and work. The best part? We take care of every last logistical detail so that you can spend every second soaking it all in.

We think travel’s pretty magical. And, whether you’re traveling with a group, a few close friends, or solo, we can’t wait to share it with you.
