The tour guides knew more than our teacher. We almost went too fast to remeber everything. I didn't like touring a farmer's market because I do that every Sat. at home. Almost walked too fast. Food was great. Always felt very safe.

I would say that the tour was really great, and we really did get our money's worth. I think there were some hiccups however on the EF side of things. If it was not for our super awesome, determined and passionate tour guide I think things really would have been hairy and not enjoyable. We did have to miss certain things and lots of time was wasted because there were not buses available for us. I really think that is something that needs to be taken care of for future trips. I also think the communication between EF and their tour guides needs to be better because our tour guide was left in the dark about a few situations like two members of our group that were leaving early, and there was no communication of that to our tour guide therefore leaving them without a planned ride to the airport. there was a lot of scrambling and stress related to these few situations but I do think overall it was a very well planned out trip and we had a great time visiting all of the amazing monuments that these cities had to offer. I would for sure do this again!

So many beautiful adventures-
There is a certain recipe necessary for a stellar tour- beautiful destinations, curious kids, teachers who work well together, and a knowledgeable and charming tour director. We had all of these. This was my 8th trip with EF and the only itinerary I have done twice, but it was our tour director who turned this from a good trip in 2015 to a stellar trip in 2018. He was great with the kids and a master at planning optionals and free time excursions. We had good food, nice (but very far away hotels), and memories to last a lifetime. My "Breakfast Club" of students came together beautifully in a stunning backdrop.

Once in a life time trip!
It was noticeable how much effort and thought was put into this tour. The tour guides accommodating, insightful, organised, and helpful. Also, the directors were very helpful when I felt sick, they took me to a nearby drug store and I got just what I needed! We were especially worn out at the end of the day, so jet lag wasn’t even a problem, which made the trip even more enjoyable. The memories of this trip will definitely stick with me my whole life!

The trip was truly amazing and a wonderful experience. So much was planned. With plenty of time to do more. You learn a lot. Tour guides were also great. Already looking into one for next year.

I loved it so much I would do it all over again. The only problems I had was the first hotel and how uncomfortable it was.

The tour was extremely informative and really fun. The highlight of this trip and what made it so great was our tour guide. Mario Perez was awesome and had our best interests at heart. He really cared for us and wanted us to have a good time. There were about 40 kids in our group and he learned EVERYONE'S name.

First and foremost the tour director was excellent. You couldn't ask for better. The flight arrangements were great. Many of our museum or studio tours had a guide or audio guides which was extremely valuable. Our days were full. The accommodations were very good including breakfasts.
