I think that this trip was amazing and super fun! I wish I could go back but also wish it didn't cost so much. But I really did love it. I suggest this trip to anyone who loves exploring!

Every second we spent on our trip was fun and I loved everywhere we visited.

The tour was definitely not what I thought it was gonna be. It was not worth the money we paid. I would never go on another tour. We got stranded at the airport, had to rent a car and drive over four hours just to get home.

I loved being able to travel to Europe for such a great price! I got to experience so many new things and see so many beautiful places. I absolutely loved it and would do it again any day1

wife and i went with our small group of french students, Our guide Isis was knowlegeble , well organized , compassonate and fun...as older adults we found the pace fast, but we were forwarned, and being a scoutmaster I am some what use to it. We heard that EF has an adult program, more moderatly paced, we would like to know more, but will have to star saving. food and accomadations, also transportation were very good.

It was a fun tour and had a good time overall, but was very restrictive.

Time is of essence
The tour was memorable. I know that I will never forget any of it at all and what made it better, was sharing this moment with friends and excellent chaperones. If you're able to, YOU SHOULD PAY FOR THE EXTENSION. I made the mistake of not doing it and I regret that and that only! Time went by too fast but finesse and enjoyment covered it up. The trip is so worth!! If I could I would do it all over again

2nd trip- disappointed this time
The tour guide we had the first trip was very good but this one was not.
He would waste time and make us late. Some places on the itinerary we did not even make it to. The first day, we did not go to anything on the itinerary. We had to rush through the Louvre the day we went there and had to miss lunch because we ran out of time.
One of the bus drivers was so rude and wouldn't even let the tour guide off the bus to get us into a park because the bus driver was making us late. Did enjoy some places but very disappointed with trip a lot.

I was completely unprepared for how terrible of an experience this would be. We started out with going directly on tour with no sleep and very little food. We were rushed through the tours with nearly no ability to go to the bathroom or eat, which resulted in a level of functioning that felt like survival mode. This continued throughout the trip. The EF provided food was horrible, no vegetables whatsoever, not enough water to stay hydrated. Sleep arrangements were ridiculous. Having a roommate is one thing--sharing a bed was an unwelcome surprise as an adult, and also for my teenage son, who did not relish the experience of sharing a small bed with another teenage boy throughout the stay. The leaders from our school were unqualified and appeared to have little to no training. This trip would have been an unsafe disaster had so many adult parents not been along to help with safety. As it was, several episodes of lost documents and students getting lost occurred. This was nerve wracking and frightening. The only saving grace was the EF tour director, but he cannot be expected to handle every single issue solo. I did enjoy seeing the sites, but cannot recommend this from a health and safety standpoint, as well as from a sound financial investment in travel. Please note that I am an experienced traveler and parent. I am neither high maintenance nor fussy. Book your trip with these significant caveats in mind!!

Trip of a life time
Overall it was a trip of a life time. It was wonderful for my daughter and I to share this experience together. The tour guides were wonderful and informative. My only concern I had was in Paris our hotel was a long walk from the subway station. The food was very good and we enjoyed trying different things.
