  1. Awesome Adventure and Educational

    EF had everything very organized and planned out. The entire trip was packed full of things to do and each site we visited had excellent guides to tell you everything you wanted to know. It was so nice not to have to plan and stress over the details, which allowed us to just enjoy the trip.

  2. More than I dreamed!

    I chose this trip as my grand finale retirement trip after having traveled with EF many times. It not only fulfilled all my dreams of Greece, it far surpassed my expectations! I saw beauty beyond compare, swam in the most glorious clear blue sea and learned a great deal about the history and culture. The people were so gracious, and our leader extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I strongly recommend the extension cruise!

  3. Wonderful Experience

    EF has done it again! The Grecian Odyssey Tour exceeded my expectations. From our organized, professional and supportive tour director to the magnificent sights to the breathtaking islands, this tour had it all. The pace of the tour was very nice with just the right amount of walking/touring/activities and downtime to shop and enjoy some free time. One of the most important aspects for the success of this tour was being consolidated with a wonderful, warm and respectful group of students and chaperones from another state. This was my biggest anxiety before departure, but it was such a joy to travel with another group with similar objectives and expectations (e.g. we all wanted to make the most out of the trip, student and adult behavior exemplary, etc.). In short, because both groups set similar norms and expectations we all got along great and our tour went so smoothly.
    Also, the timing was spot on. If we had gone any later, I think it may have become uncomfortably hot.

    Anyway, this was a fantastic tour and I highly recommend. The beauty of this country and culture is amazing.

  4. Eye Opening Experience!

    The Grecian Odyssey tour was absolutely amazing! My favorite part of the tour was when we visited the Old City in Athens. The sights were breathtaking. This was my first time traveling abroad and I had a great experience. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. I'm already looking forward to my next trip with EF!

  5. Awesome and memorable trip!

    My daughter and I went on an EF Tours with her high school to Greece over spring break. I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone and everyone who can afford it. Greece is an amazing country and it is exactly what you see on postcards and movies, maybe even better because to experience Greece live is an unbelievable experience. I loved the archaeological sites, scenery, cruise, food, and Greek people. I am so glad I got to be part of this wonderful experience. I am thinking of signing up for more EF Tours with my other daughter in future. Our tour director was great! . She did a fabulous job.

  6. Amazing except Athens

    I loved everything except for the fact that we spent too much time in Athens. I loved the ancient part of Athens(Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, and Hadrian's Library), but the rest of the city was not much to see/gross. Because of this I felt that we spent too much time in Athens. All of the scenic cities were amazing, tours were amazing, and an overall amazing experience.

  7. All I wanted and more!

    This trip could not have gone any better. EF had everything organized perfectly and we had the best tour director and tour guides! We had the chance to see so many amazing things and I learned a ton about the history of Greece, as well as about Greek mythology. I did feel like we were in Athens for 1 day too long, by the 4th day most of the group was burnt out and ready to go explore different cities. The trip was paced very well and it was nice to get free time in the different cities. This trip exceeded all expectations and EF made it very simple to travel internationally for the first time. I would highly recommend this trip.

  8. Amazing trip

    This trip was so educational and so incredible. We saw so many places that were just amazing to see and experience. Each local tour guide had a wealth of knowledge about Greece, its history, and its people. The hotels we stayed in had very small rooms and pretty bad WiFi, but aside from that, each day was incredible. Our tour director also helped us out immensely by telling us where to shop and eat, as well as finding time for the kids to swim since they really enjoyed that.

  9. Average

    Upon arrival to Athens we are greeted by a city filled with grafetti and run down buildings. Then we board bus and get a 30 minute speech on pick pockets and how our tour leader was robbed 4 weeks. Not a good first impression. We rode the subway 2x while in Athens to the Plaka district which was also very scary. The hotel in Olympia was terrible and EF Tours should not use them. No air conditioner, the door knobs don't work, beds are hard as a rock and it is not clean. I believe 4 days in Athens is way too much for tour as it is a dirty, dirty city. To see anything pretty you had to leave Athens.

    The positives I enjoyed the cruise and not being in Athens for the rest of the historical sites.
