  1. An Incredible Trip!

    This trip was an incredible experience that I will never forget. My fellow travelers and I were amazed at all the history that these beautiful countries had to offer. Our local tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and I appreciated the balance between guided tours and free time to explore on our own. Our guide through the whole trip was funny and personable, and he offered plenty of insight into the unique cultures of Portugal and Spain. By the time the trip was over, I had fallen in love with everything they had to offer. I would enthusiastically recommend this trip to anyone who wants to make memories and discover the beauty of Portugal and Spain!

  2. Portugal/Spain

    The Portugal/Spain itinerary is an amazing tour. Starting in the hilly streets of Lisbon was a great way to meet the friendly people of Portugal. Having free time in Lisbon or the option to explore Cascaís/Sintra was a great way to meet the desires of many. Discovering Évora and the Algarve region was like traveling back in time, it was truly awe-inspiring. We were able to add-on an awesome boat tour in Lagos, Portugal thanks to our TD, which was the perfect way to spend the afternoon after visiting Cabo Vicente.

    Having two countries included on this tour really gives you great value. Granada is the perfect city for students to 'get lost' and discover the city on their own and Sevilla is so picturesque. The Gibraltar excursion is highly recommended unless you're dying for a full beach day. Costa del Sol and Valencia were the perfect places to discover the Mediterranean. Our paella dinner was the perfect touch before we made our way to Barcelona. Ending the tour with the hustle and bustle of the large city made for yet again an incredible comparison between Portugal and Spain as well as Andalusia and Catalonia. I loved the free-time in Barcelona as there is so much to do and see there. Comparing the Zambra Gypsy Cave experience in Granada with the EF optional of Flamenco in Barcelona, the Zambra Excursion wins hands down! It is more interactive and a better value. Overall, this tour far exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to go back!

  3. An Unforgettable Trip

    This experience through Portugal and Spain was so amazing I can hardly believe it. The tour had a perfect balance of free-time and educational experiences. Not only did I expand my knowledge as far as history and culture, I also learned more abut myself as a human. With that being said, everyone must go on this trip so that you can truly see the beauty that the world has to offer. You'll see everything from the most gorgeous beaches in the world to magnificent cathedrals to the coast of Africa.

  4. The Perfect Tour!

    This was my third EF Tour and definitely my favorite! I would do it all over again, and again, and again if I could. My tour director was amazing, the tour guides were informative, and the cities were beautiful. From free time in Nice to a super fun scavenger hunt in Granada, every second of the tour was perfect.

  5. Incredible!

    Always on the go and always worth it. Students (and group leaders) get this lifetime experience without stressing the details! The tour is planned out perfectly for you and considering it is such a busy itinerary, you never feel like you missed out on anything. Portugal and Spain both offered gorgeous views and so much culture!

  7. Portugal and Spain 2019 spring

    My daughter had a great time on this trip. highlights: the boat ride and Flamenco dance show.
    Sharing the experience with schools from other states was a positive as well.
    Things she would change: more diversity in tour as in too many bus/ walking tours.. maybe add more activities.
    Safety and organization was great. I would recommend this trip.

  8. Amazing!!!

    What an incredible trip. Portugal is the hidden gem in this tour. The weather is perfect, making the days in this country the favorite of most travelers. Spain almost matches Portugal with incredible sights and food (paella!!!). This is a trip not to miss!

  9. Trip to Spain

    Our trip was a wonderful experience both for the students and the adults. The trip was well organized smoothly run and the staff was very professional. Our guide was very informative, personal, and connected well with the students. The choice of locations was terrific and full of history. The accommodations for the most part were great and the meals were good and timely. I would love to go on another trip to similar stops in Europe. The only drawback of the trip was a few extended bus trip required to get to the next destination. I know that my son truly enjoyed the trip and would do it again if given the opportunity.
