Fabulous overview of ParisOur tour: Paris In-Depth, was a fabulous experience for both students and adults. We brought our nine year old daughter along with our middle and high school students, and there was so much for all of us to enjoy. As a middle school art teacher, I found the art and history connections very valuable. What a thrill to see paintings in person that I have studied over the last twenty years! Our tour guide was excellent in meeting the needs of all of us on the tour. It was an amazing experience our family will cherish. We can’t wait to go again!
Changed My WorldI loved this trip so much. I am an eighteen year old student traveler, and it was amazing for me to experience going to Europe before heading off to college.
I don't know any French at all, and so it was very interesting for me to be able to go somewhere and learn how to communicate with others. I learned a few key phrases, and that was perfect. I went on this trip because I love history. I was not disappointed! I learned so much, and now I am excited to bring this history with me.
I loved seeing all the sights, and I also felt very well taken care of by our Tour director. They were always by our side, even though I felt like some of the other groups that went on the tour seemed less attentive and hard to work with. Dinner always went smoothly, and breakfast was always provided.
I loved the amount of time we were given to "discover" Paris. Especially in Montmarte. Exploring the city with our small group was definitely a highlight. I would encourage groups to have a lot of plans for what they would like to do on their personal free time, to take advantage of the time you are given.
I also went on the extension tour to the Loire Valley. It was the reason I went on the trip in the first place, and it was AMAZING to see the Chenonceau Chateau.
EF knows how to arrange tours to have down time just at the right moment. I always felt rested and ready for the next adventure! Thank you so much EF Tours!!!!
Trip of a lifetime!My trip to Paris was unlike anything I've ever experienced in my life. I had always dreamed of someday visiting there, and I was so excited to finally go. I got to see all of Paris, and our tour guide answered any/all questions I had. It was also the perfect chance for me to test out some of my French that I had been learning! Everything about the trip was amazing: the food, the monuments, the museums, the shopping, and just the experience in general. My only complaint I have is that it felt very rushed at times. Of course, my trip was only 6 days long, so we had to rush in order to fit everything that we wanted to see into our schedule. Other than that, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone. I would also like to thank EF for sending me on the best adventure of my life so far!
Wonderful Trip!!My students and I had a wonderful trip to Paris. Parisians were welcoming and kind. Our tour director was AMAZING!!!! He worked with all three groups to make sure everyone had something to do during free time and accompanied our group everywhere, well after we should have gone back to the room and called it a night. The extra excursions were a nice departure from the city, slowing the pace of the trip and allowing us to see the beautiful historic cities close to Paris. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting a full Paris experience.
Great Adventure!My daughter was fortunate enough to go on an EF Tour to Paris with a brief stop in London before heading home.
She was lucky enough to enjoy this with most of her closest friends and got to see and experience so much, it was a trip of a lifetime. They got to see and do so much and made the absolute most of the time they were there.
I got feedback from the teacher who accompanied them on the trip and felt very comfortable while she was away. Everything was handled in a very professional manner and I was ale to view photos of the trip while they were there which I found very helpful.
An Absolute Blast!The trip was amazing! The new experiences were so varied and valuble. I loved being exposed to many different cuisines and we had ample time to explore and see everything. I loved that it was all about what we wanted to see and do. Definitely and completely a worthwhile experience.
Fantastic ExperienceWe had a fantastic experience! We walked basically everywhere in Paris and our Director, Vanessa, was amazing. She showed us the best parts of the city, including some not usually visited by tourists. Amazing trip!
Paris is PerfectWe took a large group for an indepth experience with Paris and fell in love with the city. I was amazed at how well our tour director could manage all of us while ensuring our personal interests were met. Not only did we do everything that was outlined for our trip, but during any free time, our tour director made suggestions, led extra 'mini' tours, and made arrangements for us to do things we wanted to do beyond our itinerary.
All this made it possible for us to fall in love with the details of Paris. I'm sure we saw and did things many Parisiens aren't even aware of. Of course we did all the usual toursity excursions, but staying in one place gave us time to explore to our heart's content. I've done other tours where we travel to several locations, and they were great, but I absolutely adored getting to know one 'formidable' (to be said with a French accent!) location like Paris. It was truly a life-changing experience for me and my students.
There was a lot of issues1. Tour Guide
- he is not a tour guide. He just give us direction . Every time we go to place or site, he give us direction where to meet, we go around by ourselves, on our own.
- we took metro almost the entire stay at Paris. That means walking miles.
- Dinner- first dinner, we have chicken and rice. The students ask for soda, it is not included. When I complain and that we were promised 4 course dinner, then they gave us crappy canned fruit.
Amazing Experience!I found my tour to be a fantastic experience. My school had over 70 student travellers and I found that EF was able to accomadate well in finding restaurants and hotels for a group of this size in a city like Paris. I found it incredible that my half of the group was able to be our tour guide's very first tour, and found him to be well trained as he didn't miss a beat. I would have found the trip a bit more fun if we had a bit more free time, as we visited the city during Easter week and had a full itinerary, we would get stuck in traffic and have very long days with very little free time to experience the culture on our own. Overall I was very impressed with how successful the trip was and look forward to travelling with EF again soon
