  1. Amazing Experience!

    This trip was an amazing experience for me and my friends. I was able to see things that I would only see once in a lifetime. It was amazing to bond with my friends in a totally different country and be able to explore Florence and Rome with my friends. The tours were excellent and engaging. All of the guides were knowledgeable. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

  2. The Best Trip Ever!

    This was a once in a life time trip for students and staff. Our schedule was thoughtfully planned for the best experience possible, it was incredible what we were able to do in the time we had. Our guide was fantastic and truly catered to our group. We had the perfect balance of scheduled tours full of educational/cultural significance, site seeing, and freedom to explore. The highlight was visiting the Vatican just in time for Pope Francis to address the masses. Our students will never forget this!

  3. Oustanding Value!

    As an administrator, I was skeptical of taking 40+ high school students on a 10 day trip. EF made the experieince wonderful for all involved. The fast-paced schedule and attention to detail helped the trip run smoothly. The experiential learning for the students was an incredible value. It's hard to believe how much was packed into our tour. I would highly recommend EF to schools groups of all sizes.

  4. Amazing Trip!

    My trip was amazing! Everything was well planned and went smoothly, and I would totally do this again! Our Tour Director did an amazing job and our bus driver was also awesome. I will definitely be using this agency in the future for traveling outside of the country again!

  5. good and bad

    Let me state firstly, that the portion of the trip that we completed was very nice and our tour guide, Anna Maria was amazing. But, we were sent home early because of the coronavirus. We missed the last three days of our 10 day trip with no communication about refunds from ef tours. All we heard was that it costs extra to fly us home. I cannot understand why we had no communication from the tour organizers. Personally I would like to see detailed expenses for our return trip, as well as the days we missed. I cannot recommend your tour company because of the lack of transparency about refunds and expenses of our missing days.

  6. Unforgettable Journey

    After this trip, I am a new person. I learned so much with people I call a family at my side 24/7. It’s an unforgettable experience given the opportunity to learn and experience history in real life, not just from a textbook. The free time given to us was more than enough, the food was incredible, and the learning we got done was perfect. I’ve never been so motivated to learn and focused on learning. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat. I will never forget the time i had in Italy.

    Our family highly recommends the Florence Rome Tour. It was amazing. Our tour guide was great! She arranged a surprise party for my daughters birthday. Could not have asked for more!

  8. Awesome experience

    EF left no stone unturned in terms of making this trip memorable for adults and students alike. I loved seeing the small towns along the way to larger cities. Our tour guide made sure that we had authentic experiences with food and culture. I will never forget it.

  10. I want to go back!

    What an amazing experience. I finally got to go. This was my third attempt to do an educational tour, and family issues prevented the other two. Our EF Tour Director was wonderful beyond belief and all of the other tour leaders, in Rome, Florence, Pompeii, and Assisi were great too. Our stays in Assisi and Florence were the best, as far as accommodations go. Their food was the best. The hotel in Rome was fine, but the food left lots to be desired, especially after 4 days of it. I liken our trip to a blockbuster movie trailer. I feel like our trip was action packed, very rushed and left me wanting more. Our experience with the airline in Dallas was disturbingly awful to the point we almost missed our flight. The plane ended up being held at the gate for us. Total incompetence. The pilot, attendants, and gate agents at JFK were aghast at our treatment and lack of customer service. All our other experiences with airports were smooth. We had one really bad dinner experience, but I believe the tour director addressed it with EF.
    Overall, my expectations were surpassed and we had a great trip!!!! We are currently planning our next one.
