  1. 6000 Miles Away and All Was Well

    This will be a short review from a parent's perspective. After reading other reviews of EF Tours we decided to invest in an experience for our daughter. Everything leading up to the trip went very well. The coordination between the tour directors, the students, the parents, and the company went quite well. I very much appreciated the website for parents.

    The actual trip started with some travel-related complications completely outside of the control of EF Tours. Our daughter - and those traveling with her - experienced considerable delays. Some even were without luggage for some time. While none of this was the responsibility of EF Tours, they were extremely sympathetic to the situation and took steps to minimize the burden and make up for the inconvenience.

    Additionally, based on my observations and what I've heard from my daughter's experience, EF Tours provided a professional and safe experience. I would absolutely use their services again in the future.

  2. Jaw dropping experience of a lifetime

    This tour was my first going international and I can say I was not disappointed one bit. In Venice we got to see amazing and historic tour we had most of the day to our selves, my only gripe with Venice was we only had about one day. On our way to Switzerland we stopped at lake Como which was absolutely breath taking-ly beautiful it looked like something out of a movie. When we arrived in Lucerne it was a Sunday a lot of the shops were closed but they was still enough to do with our I really enjoyed the German/ Swiss buildings. then in the afternoon we take a boat on the Lucerne lake to Mt. Pilatus. The lake was breath taking as well. We went up the steepest train in Europe to get to the top of the mountain it was a little nerve racking but very fun at the same time. When we got the top I just could not believe the view, we got lucky and it was a 100% clear day and you could see everything for miles and miles. When we finally arrived in Paris after a 3 hour train ride, we instantly went to Notre Dame and what a breath taking view that was. After Notre Dame we went to Saint-Chapelle which it was a littler annoying that your have to go through airport type security to see a church but because your in a government building. The stain glass inside Chapelle is something to behold with the sun illuminating the chapel. The next day in Paris we took a bus tour around the heart of Paris, we stopped and visited the Arc de Triumph and Eiffel tower and we saw several other amazing sights. After that we basically had the afternoon-evening to ourselves. The next day we went to Louvre which good trying to see everything but there are so many great pieces of art in there and of course you have got to see the Mona Lisa. Overall I am very with trip there were a few things that were mildly annoying but they were very easy to look past with how great everything was. I will absolutely be traveling with EF again and as well our tour director from Italy was the best, she always had control of a situation and was very kind and funny.

  3. A wonderful experience!

    This tour was amazing from the start! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and kind, always trying to make sure that everyone safley enjoyed the experience. The trip started us Italy, where we got a taste of wonderfully rich food, meeting passionate people, and an a chance to be immersed into an historical environment of grandeur! The next stop was Switzerland’s Apls, where you learn the beauty of nature! We got to know the long history of a beautiful country and the hand carved symbols that remind the future of the past. Next was Paris, the city of magic! It was purely unforgettable from the streets you walk, to the paintings and art at the Louvre, to wonderful people you meet along the way. The final city, London, which at first was overwhelming, but so inspirational! From the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace, everything was amazing! This is an amazing trip that I would gladly take every year and a trip I would highly recommend!

  6. Average

    Way too many flights, long layovers and long wait in airport with wasted time after arrival in Milan.
    Food was below par with little or no protein, or vegetables, consisted mostly of carbohydrates.
    Tour manager was excellent. She related well to all tour members and was very knowledgeable as well as multi-lingual. She also navigated the various countries' transportation systems with ease and efficiency. She helped compensate for the shortcomings of the tour.

  9. Memories being made

    My trip was amazing! Our tour director was incredible, the sights were beautiful and our group went from not knowing each other to becoming a family. It did start off a little rough with one of the groups we got stuck with. They were drinking and smoking every night. However I do understand that that’s not really something EF can fix. I had an amazing time and will forever remember this trip!
