Learn about the learning holiday specialists

We’re here to help you try something different, indulge in your favourite activities and experience a holiday that changes not only your surroundings, but your perspectives.

We’ve been crafting unforgettable experiences since 2006, when our founder Vanessa found herself kitesurfing in Tarifa and realised that there must be others out there who can’t really relax unless they switch their brain into 'holiday mode' by learning something new.

She returned with the mindset to create a place where anyone – no matter their age, ability or interests – can find a holiday that isn’t the standard beach break.

Cue, GoLearnTo.

We help interesting people find equally interesting holidays to suit their passions, 5-to-9 hobbies and dreams. Beach holidays spent reading the entire summer book club list just aren't us. Instead, our trips promise experiences that are far from ordinary and will leave you hooked.

How we do it

Whether you like to travel in a group or by yourself – as the majority of our guests do – we’ve collected a range of experiences to fit. You’re likely to meet people from all over the globe, and our singles holidays have been designed to help you meet others and travel independently without paying a single supplement.

By forming close relationships with local hosts who run incredible holidays, we’re able to offer everything from photography to yoga, surfing to cooking, painting to language learning and then some in fascinating destinations around the world.

We’re proud of our reputation as a leader in innovative learning and activity holidays – we continue to work hard to make sure we stay there.

And with our guests leaving rave reviews – and thousands returning for a second (and even third, fourth or fifth) learning experience with us – we know that we’re succeeding in offering top learning and activity holidays with the right mix of fun, adventure and relaxation.

We want you to have an authentic and life-changing holiday experience, so we’ll do everything we can to ensure it. After all, if you’re not changing, you’re not growing. Go. Discover. Learn. And never settle for ordinary.

Meet the people who’ll be helping you find a holiday

Our close-knit team gets to know each of our guests personally – we thought we should return the favour!

Jen heads up our operations, guest support, and host relationships... and you’ll sometimes catch her answering the phone just to chat with guests. In other words, she does it all. She taught English in Italy for a number of years, so her Italian is molto buono and she has travelled extensively in Europe, North & South America, Africa and Asia. Ask her about her travels… she’s always happy to swap stories.

Lee hails from the far-off lands of Buffalo, New York – you’ll probably hear her distinctly American accent when you give us a call, as she manages most aspects of our customer service. Her self-proclaimed weaknesses are wine and Italian food, so she’s always happy to recommend the best cooking holidays to you. She loves getting to know our guests and hosts personally as well, so she can match the right personalities and trips.

Sacha has been with GoLearnTo from its inception – and with 16+ years of experiencing learning holidays first hand, she joined because she has a passion for great customer service and great holidays. You’ll meet her via email and live chat, as she uses her experience and extensive knowledge of our trips to fit you with the best possible holiday.
