  1. Peak life experience!

    As a first time group leader, EF and my tour director made this trip seamless! I was able to enjoy the trip knowing I had their support. Our jam packed itinerary took a lot of steps, quite literally, but each one was worth it. Some of the highlights were walking along cobblestone streets in Rome and turning a corner to what you think is another street but instead there stands a historical monument like the Pantheon or Spanish Steps! Immersing ourselves in the rich history that is Madrid, Barcelona and Rome was life changing. I really enjoyed watching my students get to practice their spanish speaking skills and asking our tour director questions about all of our activities. Overall, the trip was a an amazing experience and I am so grateful for EF for putting together and educational and fun itinerary!

  2. Stoning Experience

    What a great experience to share with students. I appreciate how organized, flexible and accommodating EF is. The hotels, food, experiences were all extraordinary. There is so much history in all places like the Coliseum, Vatican and La Sagrada Familia. We went for a total of 9 days and saw so much. All the places we visited were breathtaking, it was incredible to see everything in so little time. Our tour guide was epic. She was so enjoyable, up beat and organized. What a courteous guide.

  3. Awesome EF Tour to Spain and Italy

    Dear EF Tours,
    I wanted to send in a written letter to let you know how much the Spain and Italy tour meant to me. I learned so much from this study tour. I do consider it a blessing, and I am grateful as it helped shape my learning of Europe and Western Civilization. This was an opportunity of a life time.
    Beginning day one upon our arrival in Spain, we were off on an adventure that I will never forget. It has been only two weeks later and I have shared my story with all my friends and my family members encouraging them to go and take part next summer. Seeing the sights and the history has really made my understanding come alive. My history and social studies classes will never be the same. Also, as I enter my sophomore year in high school this year I will be much more enriched and grounded. I am enrolled in my third year of Spanish this upcoming fall semester, and I feel certain that what I experienced on the tour will prepare me to do well in class.
    The tour was awesome and one I will never forget. Thanks to your staff, I am a much better person and will be a better student.

    Thank you!

  4. Extremely Beneficial

    I absolutely loved this trip and all the architecture I saw was stunning. If I had the opportunity to come back once more I would and I would take my time to fully appreciate all the history in these two countries. The food, people, language, and art have indeed broadened my views. I have no regrets on this trip except for maybe being jet lagged.

  8. Bad Choice

    For the price we paid once arriving at Madrid had to wait 2 1/2 hours after a 14 hour trip for another school arriving because they couldn’t use the bus to take us 20 minutes to our hotel and come back and get the other group.
    The boat ride to Rome was absolutely horrible it made all sick people were sick everywhere and they made us check out of our rooms 5 hours before leaving so they could clean them and people were all over everywhere is took a day or so to recover from that. And it rained a few days which made it miserable those days a cheap rain cover would of been nice for the amount we paid and not have in any options on the food was a topper. Not enough free time any where!

  9. WOW never would have seen this all on my own

    Be ready for alot of walking and being on the go about 12-14 hours a day. Jam packed and full of great sights and information. Never expected quite so much from this trip. The only drawbacks can be a little excessive bus riding from one place to another when there might be a more efficient option. But definately recommend.You only need to bring your most comfoetable shoes.Euros are so close to US dollar considering there is no tax in Italy or Spain. The best food. Can't go wrong.

  10. Wonderful Memory-Making Experience

    Our tour was educational, enriching and positive. The only negative was learning at the last minute that an additional excursion was cancelled due to not having enough travelers sign up. We would definitely take another EF trip.
