  1. Wonderful Time!

    I recently was part of a tour that included 42 students and 9 adult chaperones. EF Tours handled this mob efficiently and (it seemed) effortlessly. Our tour guide was fantastic - extremely knowledgeable, fun and very patient.

    I mentioned a couple of sites that I wanted to see - either on my free time or on our route to or from a scheduled excursion - and our guide always made sure that I was able to experience those sites. One of those sites was Montecassino Abbey. We drove past it on our way to Pompei. I mentioned to our guide that I would like to know when we drove past because my grandfather fought in WWII and was a part of the battle for the Abbey. Our guide made a point to announce not only the Abbey as a "point of interest" as we drove past, but he included information about the battle. I appreciated that and I felt that my grandfather was honored.

    The only "drawback" to the trip is that it is SO fast! There were several locations in which I wish we could have stayed an extra day (Paris and Florence, for example). I feel that we just skimmed the surface of what was there. But I do understand that this tour is designed to be an overview of European history, location and art that the students have studied throughout their school career. And now I have a reason to research EF Tours' "grown up" packages!

    The last few days of our trip, we had several students (and a chaperone) come down with strep. When we realized how many students were suffering, EF Tours arranged for a doctor to come to our hotel during dinner on a Saturday evening and see all those who felt ill. The next morning - a Sunday - our guide found a pharmacy that was open and filled the prescriptions for us. EF took what could have been a very bad ending and made sure that we got home on the mend.

    I would recommend EF Tours whole heartedly!

  2. LOVED this trip! <3

    We recently returned home from our tour to England, France, Switzerland and Italy. It was a.m.a.z.i.n.g. We had such a great group leader and tour guide. Our group leader was good at packing a lot in our tour, but not too much. I'm pretty sure if we had been doing this trip on our own, it would have taken double the time to get it all in. EF knows how to get you in places that you would normally be waiting hours in line for. I'm honestly blown away by how much we did and saw. Trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend it!

  3. Great Trip!

    This trip had everything! Great Cities, great hotel locations, incredible Tour Leader. This was my 5th trip with EF and it was the best so far. There was more than enough free time each day to explore in the major cities.

  4. Amazing

    It was an amazing trip. I really enjoyed this trip! So much to see. It was very fast paced and there was definitely times of great exhaustion but so worth it. I really appreciated that so many of the mechanics such as subway tickets, event tickets, travel arrangements and hotel accommodations were arranged by EF ahead of our departure. It was great to be able to enjoy the sights and not have to worry about those things.

  5. Totally Awesome!

    Loved every bit of my trip! Our tour guide was great! I learned a lot from him in each place that we went. All of the places that we stayed were nice and most of the food was good. Let's put it this way, I did not starve! My entire experience was wonderful and I will definitely contact EF for future tours.

  6. Trip of a lifetime!

    This was an amazing journey! Our tour director was positive, energetic, and flexible! The local guides each had there own individual charm, and the landmarks were both stunning in scale, and smaller locales endearing in their authenticity!

  7. Wonderful Trip

    It was a fast paced exciting trip that gave us the opportunity to see so many things in each country with a guided tour telling us all the details and highlights as we went along. I would highly recommend EF tours to anyone interested in having a trip that allows you to see the sites with little wait time due to having tickets in advance and seeing all the most important things where you are going.

  9. Great Opportunity

    Overall this was an outstanding experience. We managed to see a lot of things in a relatively short period of time. The biggest negative for me was the lack of air conditioning on the tour coach - especially the longer bus rides. Although our EF TOUR GUIDE was knowledgeable and handled unusual circumstances with professionalism, I would have liked for her to be a little less rushed.

  10. Iffy

    It was beautiful trip to experience, the weather, the locations, some hotels and all the activities. What I will say that made me have second thoughts about doing this all over again, is the amount of activities that were forced into such a small time frame. On so many occasions we had to run to the location so we could do what we were promised. I wasn't a big fan of it.
