An excursion is a trip by a group of people, usually made for leisure, education, or physical purposes.
A tour is a trip with visits to various places of interest for business, pleasure, or instruction.
A travel is to go from one place to another, as on a trip; journey.

Excursions are expected to be short and for pleasure, But in tour & travel, there are certain stringed factors like taste of discovery, endurance and learning. The duration is longer than excursion.
