There were several issues with our tour from transportation in Paris to the hotel in Barcelona. However, the tour guide and our tour director did an awesome job to rectify the issues. The hotel in Barecelona-the first one had no air and was a vintage hotel from the 1970s with actual room keys. My daughter had an Asthma attack within 5 min in the room. Our tour director Mrs. S. stayed up all day and night calling EF tour emergency line regarding this 2 star hotel to assist with another hotel. I think the trip was okay. Perhaps if we had our own bus in Paris and better hotel the first time in Barcelona would have been better. It was a lot of walking especially in Paris. Beaches are beautiful there. Enjoyed the sightseeing in Paris, Provence and Barcelona.

Well worth the money!
This tour allowed us to see and experience so much! Our students were so impressed with all the cultural visits. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

It was very educational and awe inspiring. Besides the lack of consistent A/C, I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in France.

The trip to Europe was certainly a wonderful and enriching experience. The sights were wonderful, the memories were unforgetable, and the knowledge was valuable. I got better at my Frenchbwhile i was there through trial and error. If i could, i would do this again in a heart beat!

Education first! Enjoyed learning!
Overall, I learned a lot about cultures of most Americans vs most Europeans. I also saw first hand that having a positive attitude makes every experience better. I loved our guides and all we got to see in such a short time. What a blessing! The Eiffel Tower and d’Orsay Museum were big highlights for me. Traffic and late busses challenged the experience but overall FABULOUS adventure!

This tour was a once in a lifetime trip! We saw so much in a short amount of time. It was very busy! Hotel in Paris was nice, the one in Nimes we had to move after one night as it was a disaster. The one in Barcelona was on the beach but about 45-1 hour out of city center.
Our Tour Director was amazing!!!

My experience in Europe was truly amazing. Words can hardly describe the beauty of the lands in which I walked amongst, nor the feeling of being immersed into a new way of life. One essentially has not lived until they’ve set a foot in front of the other on grass that is not of home. They haven’t felt liberty until they’ve taken a breath of foreign air that spikes a tranquil sensation. Our Earth is enormous and I believe every man and woman should go out and dive into culture that they are yet to have found themselves in.

Adventure of a lifetime!
I went to chaperone my kids, and I can only say good things about this tour. I am very impressed! It was very educational and well organized. Safety is their priority. We happened to be there when France won the World Cup 2018 and our tour director knew just exactly where to take us to avoid chaotic places and get back to the hotel safe. The places we went were oh so fascinating, amazing, breathtaking! Aside from our own tour director, we also had tour guides with their own field of expertise. We were given free time to explore on our own, try new food, take lots of photos, and buy souvenirs. We did a lot of endless walking but it was all worth it!

The trip was very enlightening and the selected tour guide was very friendly. There were a few hiccups with hotels but otherwise it was an amazing experience

So much to see!
I had a fantastic trip to France and Barcelona, we rarely stopped experiencing things from 9 am to 9 pm! As mostly a country girl, the buses, trains, metro rail and tour buses were also part of the new experience. To see the art in the Louvre and be able to enter some fabulous churches was indescribable. The tour leader from EF was absolutely needed as we spoke little French or Spanish, she took great care of us all. Thank you!
