  1. An amazing time in Greece

    I cannot overstate how AMAZING the Athens and the Islands tour was. We had an amazing time, and our guide was phenomenal. The part that I was most impressed with was the choice of places to visit. The islands included in the tour were perfectly chosen - each giving us something different and unique about Greece. Highly recommended!!!

  2. Life Enriching Experience

    Always a life changing experience every new place we explore!!! This tour did not disappoint, amazing tour directors made this trip exciting and extremely interesting!!! Got to experience so much with the time we had!!! Filled days from early morning until bedtime with local culture and experiences!!! Even with some rain during our tour, I personally was in awe of the places we toured and the amazing welcome we received from all places visited!!!! From the expert tour guides with their depth of knowledge and accepting personalities, to the local people with their warm and inviting acceptance of strangers in their lives!!! Am always intrigued by how different we are as cultures but so very similar we are as humans!!! Thank you to the entire group at EF tours who always provide us with these amazing life enriching experiences!!!

  3. Amazing experience

    From the moment we landed in Athens we were off and running- in a great way! The EF Guide we had was beyond amazing and added so much to our -already incredible journey. EF did an amazing job of planning out the itinerary, ensuring we were exposed to the culture through genuine experiences. The history, the sights, sounds, foods, and all that went into our trip made memories that our students will not forget. The education benefit goes beyond the individual. We saw friendships grow from experiences and understandings of culture, societies and people. It is an investment in your child and worth every cent.

  9. Good Experience

    The Greek Tour was good. Some helpful hints are:
    1. There is a lot of walking. If you have any injuries you may want to rethink this tour or make sure that you rest a lot.
    2. Make sure that you exchange currency at home or at the airports. There wasn't any place to exchange currency. But you can get money from the ATM.
    3. The cruise/land version is too much. We were rushed on the tours that were scheduled during the cruise which was all the islands. And the cruise ship leaves as scheduled.
    4. The tour guide gave times that we needed to leave instead of times to meet in order to leave on time. This was very stressful.
    5. There isn't much rest on this tour. I tried to rest as much as I could on my free time.
    6. Shopping is good. Things are less expensive.
    7. You will learn a lot about Greek Myths. The tours was very interesting.

    Hope this helps. Although there was some touchy points, I would still recommend going because it is very nice and going with some time to enjoy would be great!
