  1. One of the best decisions I've ever made.

    This tour was absolutely incredible, especially the days spent in Italy and Rome. Our tour guide, Mariana, was amazing and her special insight into the culture and languages of the places that we were visiting made the trip even better and more eventful than it would have been otherwise. The hotels in Florence and Rome were set slightly away from the city, but in more rural areas and were incredibly beautiful and an excellent place in their own right. I loved every minute of this tour and would highly recommend it to anyone that loves history, art, or food!

  2. Once in a Lifetime Experience

    Tour director was the best! Funny, nice, knowledgeable, and great at organizing everything so it went smoothly (and was amazing at handling the bumps that cant be avoided when traveling).
    Amazing sites and experiences. Learned so much. Enjoyed the other student groups we traveled with.
    The food was great! Was nervous about having no choice when it came to some meals but was surprised at how great they all tasted. Breakfasts at hotels could improve but I understand it is usually simple fare when in Europe, just surprised that almost every hotel served the exact same items.... gets a bit dull when eating the same thing for breakfast for two weeks straight.
    Good amount of free time at each place in order to explore.
    Hotel locations would be my only complaint. Almost every hotel was located up to 1 hr from the city we were touring so up to 2 hrs each day was wasted with driving into and out of town to get to/from the hotel. Some of them not even assessable by public transit, so it couldn't even be a learning experience.
    Favorite part was seeing and experiencing the different people/culture. I loved sitting in a park or sidewalk café and just watching people. Watch them ordering food or eating gelato or buying things or just talking to their friends as they walked by. The way they dressed was even fascinating to me, which was not outrageously different, but just interesting to see the fashions.

  3. Amazing Experience

    Was an amazing experience. Makes me want to go back to Europe!
    Our tour director was amazing along with the scenery, activities, food, people, and history of the places we visited.

  4. Bonjour Yal! Would have changed my nickname, but

    Absolutely amazing. Our tour guide was fabulous! Not only were the sites incredible, but our guide was very knowledgeable and had suggestions for free time in every city that were amazing. This was my second trip with EF, and after my first trip, I was hesitant to use them again, but I had promised each of my daughters that I would make sure their Girl Scout troops could go on an international trip. This trip was worh every penny. I only wish my oldest daughter's troop had the same experience. The tour guide definitely makes or breaks the trip.

  5. Too much

    While I can appreciate the fact that EF wants to get the students their moneys worth, this tour was too crammed. There was little time to get a feel for the different areas, and to soak in the beauty. Touring the Vatican and the Colosseum in one day was way too much. Our group did add some optionals which did take away a lot of free time. I would recommend doing only one optional.

  6. Too rushed

    The tour was too rushed (there were times where we were told we couldn't stop and take pictures and to keep walking) and Wi-Fi in the hotels was spotty at best. Worst of all the EF pre-trip package, which included important contact information, arrived AFTER the trip was concluded. My younger siblings will not be going on this tour.

  9. Best 2 Weeks Ever

    It was a great experience! I've seen so many things I heard about in history class and it was so cool.
