We just returned from attending the annual SYTA – Student & Youth Travel Conference. This year it was held in beautiful Toronto, Ontario. We have had a chance to meet with various different vendors, such as hotels, attractions, theatres etc. Together we brainstormed how we can improve student travel and safety at the same time.

What is SYTA and why is AdvantEdge Tours a member?

The organization is run by an elected Board of Directors and a professional staff, with North American headquarters in McLean, Virginia located just outside of Washington, DC.

We are very pleased to announce that one of our owners, Mrs. Urte Land, was voted to serve on the SYTA Board of Directors for the next 3 years.
