  1. Amazing tour guide

    We all had a wonderful experience. My personal favorite was the Swiss Alps, I would have really enjoyed more time doing excursions there. the Swiss folk dinner experience was magnificent. our tour guide was the best guide I have ever had! He was fun & encouraging. He was also very patient and understanding. The only thing I wish I had more time to do was the Louvre. The BMW showroom was a strange stop, I would have preferred to go to a more historical location or perhaps the BMW manufacturing facility would have been more interesting. Dinners could have been better in France, accommodating space was always an issue. We had much better meals in Switzerland & Germany. Overall amazing experience and would absolutely go again using EF tours.

  2. Awesome!

    Our EF tour experience exceeded my expectations. Everything was well organized, well planned, and fun. We saw more in 7 days than we ever would have on our own.

  3. Eye opening

    This trip was an eye opening experience that helped us realize there are other ways of doing things than the way America does stuff. It was also a cultural experiment, getting to see the different basis for living. All around it was amazing!

  4. What a Trip of a Lifetime!

    This trip was by far the best experience I have ever had traveling with a school group abroad. Our tour was fairly well organized, and we saw some amazing things with some amazing people. Our tour guide was very street-wise and we really bonded with him. He always kept us up-to-date and informed on policies, procedures, and our daily itinerary. I would definitely recommend traveling with EF Tours.

  5. Wonderful Experience

    This was a great tour! The splendor of the Alps was by far the highlight for most of us. The Lucerne area is beautiful and don't miss the opportunity to go up Mt. Pilatus for incredible views of the surrounding Alpine country.

    Paris is an amazing city with much to see and do. It can be a bit overwhelming with the use of RER/Metro trains and transfers. Keep your group together & plan your stops.

    Munich is wonderful with rich history. The most thought provoking thing is visiting Dachau Memorial site. It is a very eye-opening and sobering experience providing a chance for deep conversations.

    Our group had many new travelers as well as some veterans of EF but each came home with great memories.

  6. Life Changing Experience

    The France, Germany, and Alps tour offered by EF was a life changing experience for me and my travelers. It was amazing to see and experience things that we had only seen in movies or on tv. The overall experience helped to mold my students, and myself, into globally aware travelers instead of just tourists. The trip was amazing and incredibly valuable to the whole group!

  8. Great trip, but need better hotel standards

    This was a wonderful trip, even if exhausting. Over half of our hotels were fine, but the others were under my standards. The substandard barely felt clean and the last one wasn't. Please up your standards!

  9. Fantastic Trip

    This was my first EFTour and I definitely enjoyed my time and exploring the countries and the food and having free time to explore on our own! I already signed up for my second EFTour trip for next year! Only complaint I have is our flight schedule was way longer than it had to be for adults let alone kids so hopefully our next flight schedule is better which is the only reason I gave 4 stars!
