Filled with varietyThis excursion, although brief per country, allowed my students to experience so many different cultures and food. The times at each place were just enough to allow them to get a feel for the place and not get bored. The travel times were doable and gave the kids a chance to rest and enjoy the countryside views. We saw such a variety of places that the kids were constantly overwhelmed with emotions and taking pictures of everything! It was absolutely amazing.
TerrificThis was my first time traveling to Europe! I never wanted to go before because of the language barrier and the anxiety of getting lost or where to go etc. This experience made me want to experience more and I would definitely go on another EFT Tour! Our tour guide was the best anyone could ask for. She made our trip an educational experience as well as the enjoying the sites! This was the perfect time of year to go. We experienced Italy, Monaco, France and Spain! We will definitely return someday!
We went along as Adult travelers with a High School group. We are Grandparents but even so we enjoyed this group and had so much fun right along with them!
Wonderful ExperienceThis was a trip of a lifetime for myself and my daughter. We had the chance to see things we would have probably never been able to see otherwise. Our tour guides were awesome! It was amazing how they so fluently spoke the languages of the 3 countries we visited. They also were very knowledgeable of the history of the areas we visited. They made every attempt to keep us as safe as possible with regards to transportation, etc. as every place was crowded due to the holidays.
Amazing Way to Start SummerThis tour was such a wonderful experience, and I know I'll never forget it. Our group was full of amazing people, and together we were able to make many memories. We learned so much history, and our guides helped us understand everything that we visited and why it was important to the society of the place we were in. It was amazing being able to experience the cultures of all of the countries, and seeing how similar they are but yet how they are also so different. I'd definitely recommend this tour to a friend, because everyone deserves to have that amazing of an experience and learn as much as our group did.
Wonderful ExperienceMy biggest concern about my daughter attending the tour without me (I did end up going), was how safe she would be. Not only was I impressed with the hotel locations, tours, and the areas we explored during free time, I never once felt we were in a dangerous place. Our tour director, Gabriella, was WONDERFUL!!! She was so knowledgeable of the history of the areas toured and had great ideas on how to spend our free time. I can't wait to go again!!
Life changing experiences!Our tour of Europe's Mediterranean Coast was fantastic. My group of 22 travelers included middle school students and their families. Our Tour Director was expert in working with our group and another group of middle school students that toured with us. She was able to satisfy the needs and interests of both groups as we traveled.
My travelers will take the amazing sites and experiences with them forever. We walked along the beautiful Cinque Terra streets, watched the changing of the guard in Monaco, and visited Nimes on our way to Barcelona. The free time in Nice and Barcelona allowed travelers a variety of exciting options. One of our travelers (an 8th grade strings student) played Sting's guitar and a street performer's violin during free time in Nice. He said it was the best day of his life!
Each of our travelers had amazing experiences that were life changing. Their views of the world and of themselves are richer and broader. Their plans for the future are not limited by any borders. It was amazing!
awesome experienceit was an amazing experience to be able to travel to the different countries. i would love to return and explore more in the future. the only bad or negative part will be that i was not able to go the the additional tour that my parents pay for and im not sure if the money that they paid was refunded to them. im looking forward to going in our school next tour in couple of years.
Great Tour!Our tour was excellent. Balance scheduled excursions along with free time for own sightseeing. Our tour guide and bus drivers were excellent and very accommodating and knowledgeable.
Do not use EF toursEF tours comes at a premium price but offers budget accommodation and service.
After an 10 hour delay, EF tours did nothing to expedite us to our hotel. Instead they let us wait another 3 hours on another group at the airport before having to drive 3 more hours to our cheap hotel.
The touring bus was extremely old and was falling apart. The Hotels were all extremely cheap. The tour guide was inexperienced and not flexible at all.
The meals were poor and for multiple days no vegetables were served.
Wonderful TimeEveryone involved in the tour was helpful and kind.
We saw some wonderful places and beautiful sites. This is an excellent way to enjoy and learn at the same time. Most of us got a little tired of bread and cereal, but the last place we stayed in Spain was fabulous with the food!!!! I would do it again!!!
