Intense Learning OpportunityThis was a fast-paced tour with lots of walking but students enjoying their learning. They were amazed by the sights and were enthralled with the visit to the Queen's Palace at Westminster, Windsor Castle, Toledo and especially Park Guell.
From the second day students commented on the fact that their parents had made a good investment as they felt by then they had gotten their money's worth.
It was cold in London, raining in Paris, hot in Madrid, and just right in Barcelona. The students' favourite city was Barcelona.
They loved the local guide in Toledo as he was funny and very knowledgeable. The Tour Director was very patient and remained calm throughout the tour even when at times the larger group lagged on time.
We only hoped that the Flamenco evening was more inclusive of students and not simply a show to be watched.
Kudos to EF for providing yet another great learning opportunity for Caribbean students.
Great AdventureWe had a wonderful time on our adventure! As a parent I was concerned I wouldn't be able to "keep up" with the students, but I did! This was a trip with my daughter that I will never forget, what amazing memories. There is tons of walking and long days, but it's all worth it, you can rest when you get home. Our tour director was AWESOME! All of our local guides were fun and full of great history. I wouldn't change anything about the trip!
Super experienceMy son had an absolutely wonderful time and the sites he visited were amazing. At the end of the trip he was ready to come home. His teachers were just tremendously wonderful. I would definitely recommend this tour for 17/18 year olds!
wonderfulSpain was wonderful because it was very cultural. Paris was very interesting because it was very beautiful and had amazing monuments such as the Eiffel tower.
EnjoyedGoing into the tour, we knew it was a walking tour but unfortunately didnt realize that that meant you really didnt have time to enjoy each area or learn about the places you visited. It was more of a "walk by" tour. The days we had a guided bus tour were the days we were able to learn about the places we visited. Very disappointed that we did not get into Nortre Dame Cathedral. Stood in line only to have them close before we got there. I fully enjoyed Madrid and would go back there on my own. It was exciting to see all of the monuments and architecture on the tour but I only wish that we had more time to enjoy. It is very rushed. Too much in too short a period of time. Our guide was wonderful and they did all they could in the time allotted.
poor experiencepoor experience in overall.
nothing i can say about good thing.
AmazingThis tour was amazing and so worth it. The people were very nice and caring . Everything was all set up for a good time . The tour guide lady was great . I can't wait to go back .
More time in Paris neededThe trip was overall amazing, however, there was not nearly enough time spend in Paris to fully expierience the city. It felt like we were in Paris for a very short amount of time, and in Madrid and London for a very long amount of time. I would suggest giving Paris the same amount of time as the other two cities, which would make Paris a way better expierience.
Best Trip of My Life!I absolutely loved this tour! The places I visited and the things I've learned will always be etched into my mind. London had the best social atmosphere, Paris had the best food & manners, and Madrid (and Toledo!) had such a calm aura and it was very clean. London was my favorite place we went! Especially since we were there for so long. I'll NEVER forget this trip!
There were only 2 things I didn't enjoy as much on this trip.
1. We didn't have enough time in Paris. Everything was so jam-packed and we barely had any time to stop and take a break. We were only there for less than 2 days and it felt like we were constantly moving.
2. The restaurant choices. I didn't really like the restaurants we went to. My favorite restaurants were in Paris, but London and Madrid I didn't like nearly as much. (But I'm also a picky eater!)
Otherwise this trip was AMAZING! I'd do it all over again if I had the chance. Thank you EF Tours for making this possible!
London Paris and MadridAwesome experience.
