Travel Confidently with #KASAFE
We miss your kids! We miss their big smiles and wide eyes when they see a new place for the first time. It’s been too long since we’ve seen them perform on an iconic NYC stage or march proudly through the parks. We even miss the constant selfies! Student travel is having a moment right now, but it will be back. These life-changing experiences are just too important to do without! When you’re ready to get back on the road, trust that you can travel confidently with #KASAFE.
What is #KASAFE?
#KASAFE is a multi-level response to current travel challenges. It’s a fresh approach to helping our travelers feel comfortable, confident, and cared for during their adventures. We’ve taken bold and innovative steps to make the ‘new normal’ for student travel easier to navigate.
Why is #KASAFE important?
Kaleidoscope Adventures has operated with integrity and attention to detail for more than 27 years. Our clients feel more like family! When the pandemic turned our operations upside down, we worked tirelessly to resolve problems and find solutions that made sense for each of them.
We learned a few things during that time as well – like how to do business smarter and safer. We put those lessons to work and developed new protocols for every trip we plan.
What are the new #KASAFE features?
