Our mission is to create a world where culturally immersive experiences abroad are affordable and accessible for all travelers.  With Xploreo, students and travellers seeking immersive and authentic overseas experiences can connect directly with “insiders” (language tutors, volunteering and teaching opportunities, internships, and homestay families around the world) — all of whom have been carefully vetted by our team.  This direct connection not only lowers costs by eliminating fees typically paid to third parties but it also provides the kind of personal connection between local people and travelers that is needed to build a global community of trust and goodwill.
