Taking these young people to Africa was an enormous undertaking - one to which I would only have trusted my son's amazing school and your remarkable tour company.
We have had two children travel with EF Tours. The tours have been organized yet flexible. They have been wonderful value. Exposing these young people to history, life in other corners of the world and to other cultures has an immeasurable benefit.
This trip to Africa exceeded all others. I think perhaps the moment that best encapsulates how special this experience was revolves around an inevitable little planning "hiccup." One of the vehicles transporting the kids got a flat tire. While the tire was being changed our students noticed children playing soccer - an unremarkable observation save for these kids were playing with a ball of rags. Our students located a soccer ball (many had been taken along to give to Kenyan students) and gave it to these children. The unscheduled stop became and opportunity for kids from our school to play soccer with delighted local children. The tire was changed and off our kids went - one soccer ball the poorer, but much the richer for the opportunity to play with these African children and appreciate that something they took so much for granted was a prize half way across the world.
This tour was, in so many different way, a life changing experience - something that we believe will change our boy's perspective on the world. What a wonderful education travel provides, this experience in particular.
Where to begin? The trip was just absolutely amazing! I never imagined I'd get to see the things I did on this trip. Getting to experience all the different things EF set up for us was amazing. Seeing the glo-worm caves, learning about the maori, our time in Australia, it was all fantastic. The sydney opera house is beautiful and stunning from the outside, and just as stunning from the inside. The 2 weeks I spent on this trip will always stay with me and remain 2 of the best weeks of my life.
This tour was my first non-Europe tour, and I will choose this destination again without question. There were so many adventures that made this tour memorable. Surf lessons at Bondi beach, the unreal experience at Tangalooma Resort (the dolphin encounters were just one part of this amazing stay!), sailing, snorkelling the reef, hugging koalas, the many kangaroos we saw, looking for crocs by the light of "torches," and sailing high above the trees on a gondola ride were experiences we will never forget. The weather was great (not too hot, but certainly not cold), and the people fantastic!
I would recommend this particular tour for group leaders who are interested in trying something new. Three meals a day was a great bonus of this tour, and the food is authentic Thai (with some western food at each meal), unlike some of the food that we receive on European tours. Accomodations were fabulous, the itinerary interesting, and the weather HOT! The elephant rides were the highlight for all, but we also got to do so many things that are unique to the area. Thai massages, fish pedicures, eating deep fried bugs, feeding wild monkeys, the Hellfire Pass, swimming in the waterfall... All were fantastic experiences that we will never forget!
This itinerary was great. I really like how it combined rural and urban Ireland and Great Britain, so our students got to see both sides of the three countries visited. We visited really rustic countryside, and also toured some of the busiest cities of the countries (Dublin and London).
Our Tour Director and coach driver were awesome, and they really went out of the way to make sure our group got the best experience possible. Truly, they went above and beyond.
Highlights of the itinerary included the Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Snowdownia, Stratford, and everything in London.
This was a great tour!
This being my first trip I didn't know what to expect but it ended up being an awesome experience and I hope to travel with EF again soon. Our EF guide was the best, she looked after us so well. The sites and the people were amazing. We added the 3 day cruise to our Italy and Greece trip and other than a little rough seas it was great. I loved the islands.
Thank you everyone for a trip I'll never forget!
This was my first time travelling without family and it was definitely the best experience of my life. I could not have asked for a better trip. Our days were always busy with fun things to do and our tour guide was amazing and he made the experience that much better. He was very friendly, always smiling and knew what he was talking about. There's no way i could pick one thing as my favorite because there was so many things that i loved. Going to the Buckingham palace, seeing the changing of the guards, walking through London and doing some shopping, then going on the eye of London at night. I learned that everyone there loves Canadians. France on the other hand was just as amazing. Mon Saint Michelle, Paris itself, climbing the Eiffel tower, going on the boat tour at night... I could go on about how great each thing was but It would take too long. I recommend to anyone who is thinking about going to do it. It changed my life and i'm sure it will change yours too!
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and actually was responsible for the success of our trip. Our students were in awe of the sites we visited. Our only complaint would have been the hotel we stayed in Paris. The breakfast was horrible and the service was rude. All other hotels in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and the Juno Beach area were great.
