  1. Totally changed my life!

    This was my first EF tour and as like many, I did not know what to expect. I was blown away. I was introduced to so many people and to this day I still am in contact with. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and encouraged questions. This was a great experience and I am now enrolled into another EF tour to continue my knowledge on different cultures and view different parts of the world.

  2. The Great Outdoors Redefined

    We had a biologist for a tour guide as we journeyed throughout Costa Rica. She was very informative and taught us about so many aspects of Costa Rica's nature as well as the culture of the people. We participated in zip lining, farm sustainability tours, snorkeling, horseback riding, a wildlife boat tour, a hike to a waterfall, a visit to a national park with volcanos, and a coffee plantation tour. Students came back with much more appreciation for nature and more willing hearts for conservation and recycling. My favorite part was a cultural exchange where we met a high school dance group and learned their dances. We also taught them some of our favorite dances. Working with EF was awesome, and I will definitely travel with them again.

  3. 12/10 Would do again!

    The Costa Rica tour was amazing! We did so many things to challenge and excite the students and push them to try and do new things. We saw volcanoes, went zip lining through the jungle, went horseback riding, danced with Costa Rican students, swam in the ocean, swam at the base of a beautiful waterfall, ate delicious food, saw a monkey war, drove though the beautiful cloud forest...

    Our tour guide and bus driver were amazing! They were funny, and inspiring, and informational. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. I want to go back!

  4. Best experience of my life!!

    My trip to Costa Rica was so much fun! We did so many amazing activities and our tour guide made sure that we got the most out of each one. He knew and taught us so much about Costa Rica and was very proud that he grew up there. Also, he and the bus driver were very fun together! We did so many fun things such as zip lining, snorkeling, horseback riding, touring a coffee plantation, white water rafting, and many more! I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone and can't wait to go back in the future! Pura Vida!

  5. Unforgettable!

    This trip was wonderful! My students enjoyed every activity and there was something for everyone's different preferences. Our guide and driver were excellent! By the end of the week my students were using Spanish without even thinking about it. Our hotels were close to activities and students could explore the area. The hotels were also very nice. My students cried when they had to say good bye to our guide and leave. I am so glad I took them on this trip!

  6. Pura Vida!

    This experience exceeded my expectations. As a student on tour said to me, "Life begins just outside your comfort zone". We were safe and challenged throughout the trip. Our guide was a uniquely qualified individual with seemingly endless surprises up her sleeve. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, and wherever we went, our hosts and hostesses were attentive and generous. Our tour was in reverse of the typical itinerary, meaning we had some of the most anticipated elements early on, yet even an impromptu dance party on the bus felt like a once-in-a-lifetime event. Pura Vida!

  8. Grateful

    Our children had to experience and unforseen situation that involved the chaperone teacher and another chaperone mom whom were both removed from the tour and left the other student / children with only 1 chaperone. It almost ruined my sons trip. This incident happened 2 days into the tour. Eftours went above and beyond to make sure the students that wanted to stay and finish the tour could. Eftours flew my husband out to Costa Rica to be with the other students / our son so they would stay and finish the tour. I am extremely grateful because my son worked hard to fundraise for this trip and had to been looking forward to it for months. Eftours personnel stayed in touch with me constantly until this was all resolved. Thank you for stepping in and taking care of everything!

  9. Hands On Learning+Fun

    The Tour is a great mix of learning experiences and fun...students are constantly engaged with hands on activities and really get to see the country from the native perspective. The coffee and chocolate tours are excellent (and yummy) and the snorkeling was easy enough for beginners with lots to see. Overall it was a stellar experience for all involved.

  10. Something unforgettable

    The tour was excellent. Never a dull moment, packed with activities and good memories. Our guide was by far the warmest soul I’ve ever met, I felt safe throughout the trip in his care as well as if I had met this man years ago and he was welcoming me Home. He did an incredible job explaining and informing us of the country of which he so loves. Every activity had an interesting new outlook on the country and every place we stopped was teeming with history and fun. I can not remember one thing I did not like about those fantastic experience.
