  1. Wonderful Tour

    Can not express how great this tour was. The EF tour guide was beyond awesome. He was a story teller that wove the history into stories. It was beautiful and wonderful. I wish I had recorded him so I could listen to him now. The tour itself was well run, no hitches that we experienced. Our guide went the extra mile. The coach drivers were also great. Full of information and stories, very entertaining in their own way. I can't not think of anything that was uncomfortable on this EF Tour. Their experience shows.

  2. Experience of a Lifetime!

    My son and his group had the time of thier lives. Every thing is planned so well. His teacher who was also thier chaperone was given training and information on how to handle every situation. I had piece of mind that he was safe the entire time. The only problem they ran into were flight delays and cancellation's on thier way home. This was no fault of EF tours, it was all weather related. This caused an extra day of travel. New flights and hotel rooms were promptly taken care of. Insurance provides coverage for this and additional meals as well.

  3. Perfect Pace, Lots of Great Sights and Scenery

    This tour includes a nice balance of city life and green space. In Ireland it's mostly city-based, Dublin and Belfast (fascinating recent history there is even more interesting when witnessed firsthand). I didn't know what to expect from the Titanic Museum in Belfast, but it was REALLY well-done--both the middle school students and the adults enjoyed it immensely. On the Scotland part of the tour there was lots of wide-open green space that you'd expect from these two countries--rolling hills and beautiful, expansive lochs. I loved the pace of this tour--we actually had many opportunities to sit in a restaurant and order a leisurely lunch, which doesn't always happen. OVerall, a great experience and my travelers (ages 14 to 74) were very impressed.

  4. Amazing trip

    I was nervous to send two of my kids on a trip together, but they had the time of their lives! The tour leader was amazing and everything was so well planned and organized. The could bypass lines and get right into museums with their own guides. Plus they had free time to explore the different cities. They both would go back on another tour in a heartbeat.

  5. Absolutely wonderful!

    We had a wonderful time! Our guide helped us understand the history and recent politics of the countries we visited. Everything was taken care of, from transportation to hotels to dinner each night. I would highly recommend EF tours for anyone wanting their students to see the world.

    There are not enough words to describe how amazing this trip was for my students and me! Pictures do not do these 2 countries justice...Scotland is literally breathtakingly beautiful. We were able to see tons of amazing sites in Scotland... Dublin and Belfast were incredible as well. The tour director is from Scotland and he worked along with the bus drivers to ensure they showed us so much of their beautiful home! I will be taking another group on this tour in the future!

  7. Awesome Experience

    I loved this tour. The tour director was amazing and hilarious. He had a great sense of humor. The food was delicious. I got to try new cuisines, like French and Spanish. The sights were phenomenal. My favorite part of the tour was the surprise visit to pet and feed Highland Cows!

  8. An amazing Highland experience

    I've been leading groups to Europe and the British Isles for over 30 years. Now retired, this was more than likely my last trip. I could honestly say that we went out with a bang!!
    The itinerary that was given to us in the catalog was excellent; the actual experience was much more than that. Our tour director took a special interest in our groups and not only accompanied us on our special interest side trips but added evening experiences as well.
    There were pleasant surprises around every corner and smiling faces everywhere.
    EF is special. My students and parents have been introduced to experiences that will be hard to replicate and, because of EF, their lives have changed in a very positive way. Many of them will return to the British Isles.
    I couldn't have asked for a better experience in Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow and Edinbourgh.
    I'm grateful for all that EF has done for both me and my travelers!

  9. Great tour

    From this tour I learned about the history and politics of Scotland and Ireland. The views were incredible and everything we did was absolutely fun. Our guide was the best and told us everything about the countries(which are now my two favorite) and brought us around the ins and outs, from the best fish and chips to a nature walk in the highlands.
