Where the GHardy
story all began.

Our roots are in Europe, but our passion for organizing life-changing travel journeys spans the entire globe.

The vision started with the extraordinary Georgia Hardy. Born in Budapest, Hungary, Georgia lived in Austria and Venezuela before coming to Canada in the 1950s. With a personal exuberance and cosmopolitan flair, Georgia made her name in the educational travel business, honing her talents at Butterfield & Robinson. She developed a rare mastery of the student trip niche and soon attracted an avid following of teachers and youth leaders.

From there, she broke out on her own. In 1987, Georgia founded Georgia Hardy Tours, as a specialty travel company serving schools, youth organizations and educational institutions.

Today, Georgia’s legacy lives on, and Georgia Hardy Tours is a family-owned and operated bespoke travel company based in mid-town Toronto. While still a Canadian leader in student travel, it has expanded to also offer specialty tours, luxury vacations, and bespoke, tailor-made adventures around the globe.

While Europe remains a focus and a real specialty, there is no point on the compass Georgia Hardy Tours can’t take you to — with flair, finesse and first-rate planning.
