So amazing, all the sights were beautiful and had so much fun. Lots of walking, but totally worth it. Would love to do again.

I'd rather do it on my terms
The room accommodations were horrible. Too many people in a tiny room. There was no space for suitcases, or even walking.
The tours seemed rushed and us students couldn't enjoy most of the architecture and views because of it. There were too many things packed into one single day. Too much time was spent on the streets "shopping" and then there wasn't enough time to do anything productive.

Amazing and Wonderful Experience!
EF Tours was amazing! All the places were beautiful and personally I didn't wanted to leave to my home place. Awesome experience!

Based on what my dauther told me she like the trip a lot. She complain regarding the bussess used after London and Paris. They were uncoftable and the drivers were driving pretty fast making some of the kids dissy during the travel. Other think she mention was that after the 4th day she was tired of only having for breakfast bread, ham and cheese. The experience in the ferry from Italy to Greece was a bit difficult because people is alloud to smoke on all parts of the ferry at all times. This were the only things she mentioned to me during the complete trip. Still she was happy and exciting about all the places visited.

The logistic of the trip was not good we spend to much time traveling from hotels to the places, and some times we didn't make it.

You See EVERYTHING!
Overall, this was an excellent experience! You get a quick taste of so many large and small European cities. So, if you're looking for a more in-depth taste of each city, I would go with another tour. Although it would have been nice to spend a little more time at some of the attractions (only 20 minutes at the Eiffel Tower), it is understandable that we couldn't considering how many things we actually saw. There are a few reasons I gave this tour 4 stars instead of 5. First, the bus that we had most of the time barely had air conditioning and we were following the biggest heat wave Europe has seen in decades. Also, our two days in Rome were split up with Sorrento in-between, so we had a ton of extra driving time (down to Sorrento and then BACK to Rome). This also meant that we had more single nights in hotels, so more packing and loading/unloading a bus. Splitting up the two nights in Rome seemed to take a lot of time away from a trip that was already short on time. Poor planning from EF, none of the two night stays should ever be split up on such a long trip.

Hot, busy and sleepless.
Be prepared for a lot of hussell and bussell. The tour is extremely fast paced and you jam pack a lot of sights in the 20 days you are there. The trip over all is worth it, but you drive by a lot of things without really diving into the main attractions. There is very little down time when you are in the cities. Dinner is late and breakfast is early. The food is okay, some of the dinners were not as authentic as I would have liked them to be. All of the cities visited are amazing, and worth no sleep to see all of the sights.

Another Great Adventure
I saw things and went places I never would have done on my own. I appreciate that. But our group was TOO LARGE. We were unable to do certain things because of our group size, it was often impossible to see what a guide was talking about because of the large group. We had many instances of hurry up and wait as it took so long to process such a large group at attraction entries, meals, restrooms, hotels, on and off transportation etc. Our group was fairly large to begin with and then EF combined us with another group. We encountered several other EF groups throughout our trip, all smaller than ours, and they did and saw much more than our too large group. Our tour director and local guides all commented on the difficulty of coordinating such a large group. On two occasions the bus we were assigned was not even large enough to hold our group and our luggage. Our dining experiences were diminished as we were crowed elbow to elbow into dining rooms. I was also disappointed that we were not exposed to more local cultural recipes rather than the same chicken dish over and over. The primary food variety came from lunches we purchased on our own. The purpose of the tour was to give an overview of Europe and that was accomplished but more local flavor, rural areas, would have given a better overview. Also, more information on the areas we were traveling through by bus should have been provided. Finally more time should have been allocated for sleep. Many of our group got rundown to the point of illness. This would not have happened if our group had been smaller.
