Three major cities in a week was exactly what I would call a whirlwind trip, but yet it was AWESOME!!! The students overall had a blast, the only part that they didn't enjoy was the overnight train ride from France to Italy. We're all excited for the next adventure!!

Experience of a Lifetime, but Rushed, Lot Missed
All the EF Tour guides were great. The historical sites we got to see & experience was great. The downside it was rushed. Lot of the sites we just drove by it, or was a distance across from it, like the Eiffel Tower. We didn’t even get the option to go up the Eiffel Tower. How do you go to Paris and not get on the Eiffel Tower. I felt like We missed out on a lot. The Hotels & their service were horrible, not one of the Hotels air conditioning worked. Don’t recommend the overnight Train.

Despite our luggage taking 10-hours to arrive from the airport to our hotel the 1st night, and an extremely long and tiring night train ride from Paris to Rome, it was a valuable experience. It was exciting for all to see London, but we did not see much there. The hotels were so far from the different city centers that we were forced to waste a lot of time traveling by bus or metro to points of interest. The trip was extremely exhausting, but all things considered, worth it.

I learned so much history visiting these cities. Most of the tour guides spoke loud enough to hear and clearly. The people in each country were very polite and patient with us who didn't speak their language fluently.
I would like riding by bus to these cities or train so I could see the countryside and what kind of farming is being done.
Motels closer to the area we visited. By the time we get to the motel, everyone is asleep and has to be woken up.

Once in a lifetime
What a wonderful experience my daughter had. She had so much fun and learned so much. She couldn't pinpoint one favorite thing! She enjoyed all of it. She wished that there were more tours so she could have experienced more of Europe. Thank you EF

World wind trip!
The trip was fast paced for this 47 year old Mom, but just right for my 15 year old. It is mind boggling to think in one week I saw the Rosetta Stone, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower and visited the Colosseum in Rome. It was an amazing trip. I felt safe and cared for the entire time. We were led through every train transfer and every walk. For our first trip to Europe, it was hands down the way to go!

An adventure we will never forget
I loved this trip! The tour director took care of all the details so that we could focus on learning and fun. She gave us great information to keep us prepared and she kept everything running smoothly. The local tour guides were knowledgeable and more importantly, they knew how to make history interesting through great storytelling. All of the hotels were comfortable and the food was amazing! I was a little nervous about the night train, but it ended up being an okay night and a great part of the adventure.

Very Good tour
I really enjoyed the tour and all that we got to experience. The actual tours and guides were fabulous. The one thing that was not ideal and seemed to cause problems was how far away from everything we stayed each night. A lot of time was wasted riding on a bus to get to each city. I toured with EF to Spain 2 years ago and we stayed close to all the action and it just seemed as if we got to experience more that way.

I am very familiar with the London, Paris, Rome tour but this year I felt like I got a lot more out of it on a personal level. The Tour Guide was extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and willing to help our travelers to learn about things that were not necessarily on the itinerary. If there was a downside it was that I did not feel I had enough personal time at the Vatican or St. Peters.

This tour totally sucked ! Everything from the food , tour guide , and time wasted while on the tour . I would not recommend this tour or EF to anyone . Guide was not at the airport to greet us . Waited 2 hours after we got through customs to board a bus . I was not impressed by EF at all . Hotels were an hour or so away from where we would be going everyday . Why not have a hotel closer to the sites ?
