  1. Language and Cultural Immersion

    Our students had a chance to practice and develop their Chinese language skills. They had opportunities to learn the rich history of Chinese culture. Our students made many friends and enjoyed every aspect of this experience.

  2. BusyFun Learning

    EF Tour Guide based out of Xi'an made it seem easy as she stitched together a high end experience for our group. My 4th trip to China was so much better from both an educational and experiential perspective. The city guides were also helpful, kind, and thoughtful.

  3. Phenomenal Opprotunity

    This trip was better than anything that I could have imagined! Each and every single day was jam packed with fun activities. Also, I got to meet some really great people. Through this tour I was able to fully appreciate China's scenery, history, food, and culture. All of this wouldn't have happened without the help of the EF Tour Director and group leaders.

    If you every get an opportunity to travel--do it! You won't regret it!

  4. Excellently run tour

    Our tour leader was clearly an expert, was considerate, kind and attentive to all the needs of everyone in the group, both as a whole and individuals. They were always prepared, and had numerous activities lined up, as well as contingency plans, all subjects of interest and was sensitive to various people's price ranges. All around, very enjoyable experience, best tour guide I have traveled with so far.

  5. Very Rigorous

    Good trip but, be prepared for alot of walking and not alot of sleep. Further, the hotels are very dirty. The food is good but, redundant.

    Tour guide was as good as it gets.

  6. Worth it

    The trip to China was an amazing trip, 100% worth it. The following school year, I walked around campus and had small conversations with several of the other travelers from the trip.

    Any minor problems I encountered were of my own doing (ie; laundry, dehydration, etc), and the EF people were as helpful as possible.

    I look forward to travelling with EF in the future and perhaps one day lead a group of my own.

    Thank You!!

  9. Amazing

    China was an amazing experience. Our tour director, john, clearly knew what he was doing and made the whole thing such a good time. Would reccomend to everyone.

  10. ok

    Our main tour Guide was marvelous. Many of the main sites and events we went to were spectacular and educational. The chance to visit so many cities in one go was useful in itself, although it certainly sunk a lot of time into travel over actually doing things. I did come to the conclusion that I would not travel in a group like this again. I believe that I could sit down with a travel agent and come up with a better trip for less money. The group dynamic gives almost no flexibility. Time in any one place was almost always a rush. Also, the stop almost every single day to Shop over and over and over again looking at the same stuff over and over and over again made us feel like the point of the trip was for us to help with the country's GDP! Finally, hotels were over-all disappointing.
