  1. Fabulous vacation and tour!

    Our recent trip to Germany and the Alps was nothing short of spectacular! Kudos to the tour organizers, directors, and guides for a truly remarkable trip! Not only was everything well-organized and on-time, but the rich and enthralling history of the region was presented in an unbelievably dramatic and enlightening fashion that totally satisfied our curiosity and thirst for knowledge. This was augmented by the eye-popping and fairytale-like scenic panorama of the German, Austrian, and Swiss Alps, lakes, cities, villages, castles, etc. Also, the people of our host countries were extremely nice, pleasant, and hospitable - and the food and drinks were excellent! Many thanks for an exciting and unforgettable experience!

  2. Amazing experience

    This has been the most amazing experience I have ever experienced. The price of this 9 day trip was well worth it. Saw so many historical places and learned so much. Our tour guide really took the time to listen to what the group wanted to see and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. I think the only downside was bus had broken air conditioner but was quick to get it fixed.For what the price of the tour the food could of been better then cereal for breakfast. We actually went to grocery store to get stuff to snack on. I have the opportunity to go on another trip and I am really considering it but I will have to be more prepared money wise for more food.

  3. Wonderful Trip!

    We were pleasantly surprised at how well organized the trip was and how efficient we moved 32 people from place to place. We loved that we were able to see so many different things and that the experiences were authentic. The hotels (local B and B's) were wonderful and the meals provided by the hotels delicious. We look forward to traveling with EF again!

  4. Germany & The Alps was AMAZING!!

    I can not say enough how perfect our trip was to Germany & The Alps! I am a first-time EF traveler and was overwhelmed how my tour director had anything worked out down to small reservations for better parking and even bags for breakfast if we departed early. As a first-time European traveler and EF traveler, I was a bit nervous about the safety and language barrier. Once I arrived all that went away. Our guide was fantastic, he stayed with us the entire time, always asking if everything was ok or if we needed anything. I also liked how the guide never leaves your group from when they pick you up at the airport to when they drop you off for departure. He even helped get us through the check-in process. All of our hotels were great as well as our excursions and other city guides.

    I will be doing another tour with EF in the future, and if you have not made a trip with EF, I highly recommend you do so!

  5. Lovely Experience

    As the grandmother of one of the high school students I have to note that one should be ready to walk! We stayed busy every day of the tour. This being my first trip to northern Europe I find it hard to fully explain how amazed I was at the beauty, cleanliness and commitment to energy efficiency and independence of Germany. We traveled between cities past forests, efficiently organized farm fields and small villages. The EF tour made sure that we saw it all. The tour was above all very educational and I would jump at the chance to go on one again.

  6. Awesome trip!

    Very well organized tour! As a parent on this trip it was truly amazing how much we were able to see and do in 11 days. We were on the go all the was so much fun! I highly recommend any student and or parent to go on an EF trip. This was our first oversees trip and it couldn't have been any better. We loved all of the food we ate. Had fun seeing all of the sights and tours...really made us want to go back and spend more time at some of our favorite places/towns/attractions. Definitely worth every penny!

  7. Life Changing Experience

    My 13 year old son just returned from this trip 3 days ago. It was organized by his 8th grade history teacher and all of the chaperones were teachers from his school. This made for a wonderful, safe experience. He has not stopped talking about the experience and he is not a big talker! This trip does spend a large amount of time on a bus but that did not seem to be an issue for he or his group. This was the first time he has traveled anywhere without us let alone overseas. He did great and said that they were so busy that he didn't have time to be homesick. His favorite part was the trip into the Alps which he considered life altering.

  8. Eye Opening Experience!

    This trip was by far the best trip of my life. I got to experience different cultures the world has to offer, and along the way made new friends. Our tour guide was outstanding, knowledgeable, and respectable to everyone in our group. Everyone should make it their goal to travel outside of their comfort zone at least once in their life! Thank you EF Tours for this amazing experience I will never forget!

  9. Fun tour

    It was great because of our tour guide and bus driver. The hotel we stayed in the first night and last night were absolutely awful! The food was disgusting. These two hotels never should have been used for the amount of money we paid ! The other hotels were ok
    Food choices are very important and we should be given choices before leaving the US

  10. Can't wait to go back!

    This was the most amazing trip I have ever been on! The guide was fabulous; the destinations were breathtaking. I cannot wait to return to Germany. I cannot effectively express how amazing and beautiful Germany was. I even cried when we left Switzerland, didn't want to come home. Everyone must experience for themselves! Now to go thru my almost 4,000 pictures. :)
