From mountainous landscapes to bustling cities. This tour offers it all. Truly an amazing experience.

A lot to experience
Visiting 5 countries in a short amount of time was incredible. The overall plan of the trip was great, but the daily plan and schedule was poorly conceived and rarely communicated. At least a dozen times we were told about a place something to do and then were told that it was closed. A little planning goes a long way.
All but 2 hotels were sub-par (even for someone who has been traveling with students for 20 years.) 1 1/2 hours from the activity of the day is too far to use time wisely especially with so many destinations on this trip.
While I understand that EF is in the business to make money, hotels and included meals could be better and more consistent.

Had fun but tour guide kept saying um and yeah a lot. He didn't seem to know what he was doing. We would leave the place we were at and he would tell us stuff about the place when we left. But over all I had a very good time!

I really enjoyed this experience with the students and their parents.

Overall it didn't reach my expectations.
While all the sites were amazing! It really was a disappointment that we were spending 2-3 hours traveling to the tour sites from the hotels. The pick of hotels we were put in were terrible, one actually felt like it was a hostel. Tour guide did not follow the itinerary and was not very helpful when it came to information about where we were, he always had to look it up. I would have liked more free time in a few places instead of having just enough time to grab lunch. It felt like we were just rushed all the time with no time to take pictures or enjoy the site for more than 2 min. The tour guide walked too fast leaving half of the group when crossing streets and sometimes failed to even realize we were missing.

This tour was so beautiful and so much fun. I was unsure about going, but I'm really glad I did. It was hot, but so worth it. There are many places on this tour that I would visit again.

I would highly recommend this tour to high school groups. It was top-notch from start to finish. Our students experienced five different countries and countless activities during their nine day adventure. Everything was super organized and ran smoothly. Our tour guide was outstanding! Thank you EF for the opportunity of a lifetime!

Our son loved the trip! He said the locations he visited were absolutely beautiful. He made great friends with other travelers from another high school. His guide was wonderful too! Just the right pace and informative...perfect for teenagers. Italy was his favorite and he can't wait to go back again explore on his own later on.

Everything was perfect! We saw many out of the way locations plus all of the major attractions. Our hotels and food were way above expectations and everyone was sad to come home when it ended.
