AusgezeichnetMunich -- Heart of Bavaria! What a fantastic trip! My students threw themselves into the itinerary and got so much out of it. The number of times I heard locals compliment their German made them beam! So many new experiences and some of them are already looking forward to returning to Europe. Salzburg and the mine were a highlight for all of them. It was amazing to watch my students spread their wings and do things they probably thought they couldn't do!
Our tour director was phenomenal and the local guides for tours brought great additional information to the group. Dachau was sobering and not to be missed. Without a doubt, the most popular part of the tour was the trip to Neuschwanstein! Still a spectacular place in some of the most beautiful parts of Germany.
Best Tour of All!Everything on this tour was terrific! Our guide was extremely accommodating, the hotel was super friendly, the food was incredibly good, the students thoroughly enjoyed the sites, and it ran more smoothly than any other trip....I couldn't be happier! Munich and Salzburg are the friendliest places. I will do this one again!
EF very responsive to challenges!We ran into several challenges on our tour. Weather and delayed baggage...even a fire on the train tracks! through it all EF was very responsive and helpful. The American and European office worked very hard to make sure that my group had a great experience despite the challenges. Our tour director was professional, helpful and hardworking. We had to change our itinerary because our trip was delayed by 2 days. I was so happy that EF was able to give us those two days back. Together with the tour director, the itinerary was a great success, even if it was a little different than anticipated.
Fun ExperienceOur group loved Southern Germany. We got a great understanding of the art, architecture, history and culture of Bavaria. We were able to tour the region and explore great cities like Munich and Salzburg.
I do wish we had a little more free time to explore in groups. It did feel a little hectic at times.
Munich and Beyond, Overwhelming ExperienceWow, what a great time. Our guide was so awesome, in her strict German way. The food, yum, the city, overwhelming, the countryside, enveloping. I'm ready to go back. Our hotel was very comfortable, clean and quite, much needed after runnin and gunnin all day.
Don't let this opportunity pass you up, if you kiddo comes home and says, there is the EF Tour thing can I go? Say yes, and go with them! My son and I have something that is just ours now forever, plus the bonding I did with everyone. Very special, worth every dollar and euro! God Bless!
Good tripI had a great time, the tour guide was great.
