We are delighted to welcome you to our website especially now in such difficult times. Covid-19 and its impact on society across the globe will be far reaching and for some time to come.
That said, there will be a time when people wish to travel again and learn of others cultures in a way that ECE promises – Travel with Purpose.
We seek to offer what others do not - unique access to people, places and events throughout the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe to give you that special experience.
So whilst you are now restricted to home but have the desire to travel in future and learn about others – their communities, way of life, education, sports or music and performing arts why not contact us and ask us to plan your next travel itinerary with a real difference? We’re not going anywhere right now and would be delighted to assist planning for a time when it is safe to travel again.
At ECE we believe travel is educational in itself and equips everyone to understand each other’s cultures especially right now given the future challenges we all face.
We look forward to hearing from you soon and visiting us at the earliest possible opportunity.
In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
Best wishes
