  1. Amazing time in Peru!

    The EF Peru Trip was absolutely the experience of a lifetime for our students, and for chaperones. We have done other EF trips and they are always very well organized, and very well done. Peru was no different. Each day was carefully crafted to give students a great experience in Peru. From touring cities, Mach Picchu, service project--- all was impeccably done. Our students enjoyed the experience and really felt they we "in Peru." Traveling in the developing world is different than the traveling in Europe, as on other EF trips. Our students' experience will not be soon forgotten. Our tour guide Victor was an expert and an extremely professional guide. He improved our experience with his knowledge and skill as a tour director. We will plan another trip soon!

  2. Eye and heart opening experience!

    This tour was an amazing experience for my students and I. We had an incredible Tour Director! The service project was an eye and heart opening experience for my students. Every high schooler should have this experience therefore they will appreciate what they have here in the USA!

    I really loved this tour I got to explore big cities to rural villages! Food was incredibly versatile I could choose so many things and I love how my tour director acomodated so many things for us! Definitely recommend this tour to everyone I know who gets home sick easily because this tour helped with overcoming that fear I had. Thanks EF

  4. Just wow!

    I know this sounds cliche, but this trip was life-changing for myself as well as my students. Every moment of the trip was phenomenal (well, maybe not the guinea pig :) - from our tour director to the ruins. But the most amazing part of our journey was the effect the service-learning project had on my students. They put their small town hearts into helping a kindergarten school, and each of them came away with globally aware hearts that are forever changed. In fact, two of my travelers are starting a club next year so they can continue to help the kindergarteners and other kids in similar situations. I couldn't be more proud of them.

    Truly, even the cultural differences, e.g. heat in rooms, a few cold showers didn't dampen their spirits - in fact, these things didn't even register as a blip on their radar. The ancient ruins, the food, our hotel host in Urumbamba, the sights, the culture, the tour director and guides, and most of all, the children ... now those awesome people and experiences will forever be on my students' radar. Sending a forever thank you EF.

  5. Serve in Peru!

    My group of 14 students and 9 adults had an absolutely life-changing tour of Peru that included filled-to-the-brim days of non-stop experiences in cities, towns, and hilltop villages visiting archaeological treasures, observing local crafts persons, visiting museums, eating regional foods in unique restaurants, hiking off the beaten path, working along side indigenous peoples in their communities, taking in unbelievable vistas, and getting an up close and hands-on experience with a beautiful culture. GO TO PERU. SERVE IN PERU. You'll be glad you did it!

  6. Best EF tour I have ever led

    I have taken students overseas seven times now, and this was by far the most amazing trip I have ever led. The hotels and meals were fabulous, and the itinerary was a stellar mix of tourism and service learning. We hiked at Machu Picchu, the ruins of Ollantatambo, and Sacsayhuaman. We explored the Pisac market and happened to be in Cusco during the festival of Corpus Christi. The service project with Awamaki was an amazing cultural experience for my students. Not only did we help to build a weaving center for the women of Huilloc, but we worked, ate, and played side by side with villagers. We learned about traditional weaving techniques, and gave back to the global community. I watched my students become a family through this adventure and it was life changing for all involved. I only want to do service learning trips from now on.

  8. I love Peru!

    Our trip to Peru was beyond amazing! Our tour director was on top of everything and very knowledgeable. We never had a dull moment and I feel that we did and experienced so much. There was the appropriate level of free time given and the local guides were very personable and fun. Peru is a beautiful country, with amazing food, people, and more. To me it was a once in a lifetime trip and I would highly recommend it to others. Adding the service portion only made it that more meaningful.

  9. Awesome Trip!

    I believe my trip to Peru was extremely valuable. Experiencing the Peruvian culture, which proved much different than my own, opened my mind to how other people live throughout the world. From driving through the countryside, talking to local girls, and touring the cities, I recognized the similarities and differences between people in Peru and the U.S. Our EF tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was completely committed to bettering our understanding of all aspects of Peruvian culture. Overall amazing experience
