As a parent my highlight was actually being able to go with my son and watch him experience this trip with his best friends. It was truly an amazing experience for the both of us. Our EF tour director was simply the best - so knowledgeable, so fun. She really made sure everything went great from getting us from place to place, to keeping us on time, to answering all of our questions, to really taking the time to get to know us and enjoy the whole experience. The EF guides that we had in each place did a fantastic job as well. They were also extremely knowledgeable and you can really tell they absolutely enjoy what they do. They made it fun for the kids and got them involved. Our Tour Director was great about that as well - she would have a quiz, we went on a scavenger hunt, we played get to know you games, etc. So beyond what I expected! The trip itself is everything you would imagine - they kept us going so we could see all the highlights, we had some amazing adventures in our free time and we cannot wait to do it again!!! Thank you EF for an unforgettable trip!

Adventure of A Life Time
My trip to Scotland and London was the best week of my life and I plan on going back and living in London’s for at least 2 years after highschool. At the time of the tour I was a junior in highschool. It is just such a beautiful place and has very nice people. I had an amazing time I was sad that I had to leave so soon, I loved the bus rides, the hotels, the food, the gift shops, the museums, etc. I hope that when I go back I can meet up with Phe, who was our tour guide, so that she can show me around or at least tell me where to go. If Phe see’s this, I hope your having a fun time on your boat with your cats and I really hope to see you someday in the future.

Was an ok experience. Would had loved it more if there was more time to actually sit and enjoy the places instead of go go go where you take a pic get on the bus and go. 3/10 as my rating.

Incredible trip! Saw all the top attractions.
Only negative was taking the teen group into the Louvre. Trying not to lose a kid in that crowd of over 100K people was almost impossible + I don't think teenagers were interested in art to begin with.
Other than that it was great and our tour director took excellent care of us.

Great Exposure to So Much
The tour we took to Edinburgh, Scotland and then through England to London (via York, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick, Oxford) was wonderful. We saw so many beautiful, historic places. Taking a tour like this was perfect because now I know which places I loved more than others and where I want to return someday.
The weather was great. The tour director was more than great. The bus driver was great. My tour consultant getting ready to go was very helpful, too.

First Time Traveling... Amazing
Visiting and seeing Scotland was enough to make me cry. This trip gave me the opportunity to travel and actually be able to afford it. I got a window seat on my first ever plane ride. I felt weather like I never have before. I met such kind people. I ate unique food and slept in comfortable beds. I will be traveling with EF again.

I really enjoyed the tour. It was a lot of fun getting to see famous places like Buckingham Palace, the Bobbie Statue and much more. I do wish I could have stayed in England and Scotland a little long. But all in all I had an enjoyable experience in Europe and I hope to visit again soon.

I have been on 4 EF tours and each one was more amazing than the next. I can’t even fathom how much the students are constantly learning. I have never seen a student or adult regret going. EF thinks of EVERYTHING for you. You just enjoy and learn. I had a student just tell me how taking the EF tour last year changed his life. our tour director was wonderful and our tour leader was organized. I highly recommend EF to every, teacher, student, and parent. Just go for it!

Great trip! Our tour guide was amazing. Motel in London was not the greatest. But everything else was great. Saw so many awesome things, truly the trip of a life time.

LOVE the gothic cathedrals!
We had time to see wonderful gothic cathedrals, which I loved, as well as several castles, falconry, countryside, London proper, Oxford, York and Edinburgh. The sightseeing and the play were GREAT! I've been to England before and was predominantly going for Scotland. I was disappointed that our tour got flipped around and we ended up with less time in Scotland than originally sold. The coach driver was superb. The hotels were okay; however, they were not close to the sites so we spent more time than I'd like just getting to sites to see. The food wasn't great and much of what was chosen wasn't eaten by the students - which was a waste of money and could've been done differently. Our guide did not communicate well to the adults to allow for us to tradeoff a walk for a taxi, for example. The amount of walking was not an issue, but the speed he went - he was losing people, including students. Overall, for the money, I'd do something else.
