Founded in 1982 Academy Travel is a full service agency specializing in customized travel arrangements for groups. Our typical client is a college or university professor, minister, or institutional travel planner who wishes to organize a travel program for his or her particular group--students, congregation, alumni association, museum--and is looking for something a little out of the ordinary.
Eric Moore comes to us from the world of academia. He has taught at various institutions including his alma mater, Emory University (PhD, 2017). His book, Claiming Places, traces origin stories in the ancient Mediterranean world. Despite the countless hours spent in the classroom and library, some of Eric’s most formative learning has taken place while traveling. Particularly enlightening trips include archaeological digs and seminars in Bulgaria and Turkey, respectively, and summer stints in Spain, China, and Jordan. At Academy Travel, Eric creates customized group programs for clients who also wish to experience “learning through travel.”
