Dear Longhorns,

Want to see the world with your fellow alumni?

The Flying Longhorns Young Alumni Travel Program offers well-designed, hassle-free tours that will broaden your horizons—think Morocco, Portugal, Egypt, South Africa, and Greece, just to name a few. They’re also a great opportunity to bond with old and new friends who share your burnt-orange pride.

Travel the world with recent graduates and friends of peer institutions, who graduated within the last 10 years. These programs provide social, cultural, and recreational activities and many opportunities for learning enrichment and enjoying a connection back to the University of Texas at Austin. They are an awesome value, operated by a travel company, AESU, with over 45 years of experience in the young professional travel market. Click on the buttons below to find detailed itineraries, travel dates, and pricing. You can also book online!

These outstanding itineraries are brought to you by the Texas Exes Flying Longhorns travel program, which supports the association's mission of promoting and protecting The University of Texas at Austin and uniting its alumni around the world. While you do not have to be an alumnus of UT to travel with us, we do ask that all Flying Longhorns travelers have an active membership in the Texas Exes; memberships start at just $5 per month.

If you have any questions about the young alumni travel program, please contact tour operator AESU at alumni@aesu.com or call 800-638-7640.
