The trip was overall an awesome experience. However, we were a group of 49 which seemed like too many people. There was a lot of waiting for people to load and unload. The hotels in Athens were poor in quality. Our EF tour guide was awesome and our guided tours were great as well.

Once in a lifetime trip
Our tour was exciting from start to finish. We were met by a wonderful EF guide in Rome and she introduced herself as the Italian mama of all the students. The sites we visited in Rome and Pompey were amazing and the cruise through the Greek Islands was a well chosen option. Thank you EF for making such travel both affordable and exciting.

It was a wonderful trip, amazing EF tour guide and amazing local guides. I couldn't be more happy with the whole experience. It was a busy tourist season, crowded at times but still amazing!

A trip to Remember
This trip gave me lasting experiences that I will remember for days to come. I made tons of new friends, and the best part was having an amazing tour director. Please please please, commend Gloria! She is the most wonderful tour director anyone could ask for. She went above and behind, treated us like family and made us want to come back. I love her so much and EF wouldn't be the same without her. But for the trip, the Greek Evening was amazing and the Vatican was out of this world. The only thing that could make the trip better is having the various tour guides talk a little less, but other than that, the trip was great.

This trip was amazing! My son & I had the best travel experience of our lives, especially for being our first time traveling abroad. It was wonderful seeing the things we've learned in school upfront & personal. I got a history refresher, and even learned some new things! Our family will definitely be traveling with EF in the future. I've already enrolled our younger son for an upcoming tour.

This was an amazing experience. The historical context of the places we visited was educational and informative. My only regret is opting NOT to go on the Greek Island cruise afterward.

great for first time travel
overall, experience was good, especially for first time travel. More time was spent getting from one place to another than was spent enjoying the sites. Didn't get to see all (Spanish steps, walk around rome) due to schedule changes. Food was okay, but got tired of eating the same thing for both lunch and dinner several days in a row. Tour director was good, but needed to stop talking long enough to let everyone absorb what she just said. Non stop information for several hours at a time. We always seemed to run late, couldn't spend time we wanted at each site. Some sites, too much time was spent.

Better than expected!
As a World History teacher, I had high expectations for this trip. The experience far exceeded what I anticipated. The people, culture, food, and spirit of both Greece and Italy was phenomenal. Feeling history come to life really made an impact on my perspective of both civilizations.
