Why KA? 5 Best Takeaways for Teachers and Group Leaders
People are always asking us, “Why should we choose Kaleidoscope Adventures as our trip-planning partner?” Recently, KA’s COO Keith Snode joined the Travel-Preneur Podcast to share exactly what keeps KA at the top of the student travel game after 30+ years. Here are the 5 best takeaways for teachers and group leaders planning a student trip!
1. We Make You Look Good!
Our number one goal is to make you look good – and from our first conversation until the last minute of your adventure, we strive to achieve it!
We start with you and your students in mind and don’t try to make your group fit an existing mold. Instead, our tour consultants listen to what you want and help you turn your vision into reality.
We’ll work with you to create a truly transformative travel experience for your students that meets your curricular goals.
KA understands that when group leaders, travelers, parents, and administrators are happy, it’s a win for everyone.
2. We Always Put Safety First
If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. Kaleidoscope Adventures prioritizes safe practices for the well-being of all travelers.
- 1st U.S.-based tour operator to earn the WTTC Safe Travels Stamp
- Clearly-communicated emergency plans
- Highest standards for suppliers like hotels, buses, restaurants, etc.

3. Our Team is Expertly Trained and Experienced
The KA team is a combination of seasoned pros and energetic fresh faces that bring a well-balanced approach to planning your trip. Beginning with KA’s core values and commitment to excellence, our team knows what it takes to be the best.
Our tour directors are knowledgeable about their destinations and work hard to establish a great rapport with the group. They are also trained in the latest emergency protocols.
In addition, we use a multi-layer review system for each traveler and trip leader, relying on valuable feedback to adjust course if necessary.
4. We Offer an Easy-to-Use Online Platform
KA partners with WeTravel to provide trip planners with an online payment and registration system. This platform does the heavy lifting of planning a student trip for you!
You no longer need to worry about gathering permission slips and important documents, finding bus and rooming lists, setting payment schedules, or collecting payments -it’s all online for easy access.
Travelers are also provided with a link to purchase travel protection for added peace of mind.
Pro Tip! Check Out KA’s Crowdfunding Option
One of our favorite features of this platform is the option for each student to “crowdfund” his or her individual trip through the online system.
When a traveler creates a trip account in the KA payment system, s/he clicks a button to activate the contributions page (powered by WeTravel). An active link is now available to share with family and friends who may want to help pay for the trip.
Talk about a game-changer!!
5. We Keep an Eye on the Future
Kaleidoscope Adventures has a 30-year history of excellence and an eye on the future. We are never content to maintain the status quo. Instead, we work to stay ahead of the trends and upgrade our service to meet changing customer needs.
For example, we encourage each group to be responsible travelers and embrace sustainable practices like using refillable water bottles and buying locally. We also offer opportunities for travelers to give back to destinations through service if they choose.
