Three things we love about Oyster Worldwide

We’ve known the Oyster team for many, many years.  In fact, we knew Roger well before Oyster was even launched in 2006, back when he was organising expeditions for young people. They are all lovely people fully committed to ensuring their customers have a genuinely amazing gap year experience.

A small team of friendly gap year specialists (genuinely!) who will ensure you find the right experience for your needs and wants.  They will guide you every step of the way, as little or as much as suits you.

Every customer counts and they’ll even plant a tree for every one! Their projects and operation is planet conscious and they really care about their projects and placements and the experience you have.
