Philip Said:

A question about EF educational tours..?

We Answered:

No, tours do not need to be planned through your school.

EF Educational Tours is for groups of student travelers, but they do not need to be school-sanctioned. Many teachers lead groups of students and other travelers on their own, and some students who want to travel nominate a teacher or parent to lead a tour.

For more information, you can visit our website at http://www.eftours.com or you can call us 1-800-637-8222. Or feel free to email me through Yahoo. Good luck!

Clifford Said:

Has anyone been on an EF educational tour?

We Answered:

EF Education was founded in Sweden in 1965 with the mission of breaking down barriers of language, culture and geography. Today, EF is the world’s largest private education company, with a group of 14 subsidiaries and nonprofit organizations centered around language learning, educational travel, cultural exchange and academic programs. EF has over 26,000 employees, teachers and volunteers, with offices and schools in 51 countries. Over the past four decades, EF's educational programs have helped people of all nationalities become citizens of the world.

EF Educational Tours allows educators to enrich their classroom teaching through international travel. Our escorted tours, known as the Global Classroom, help student groups to "learn it by living it" when they experience firsthand the very best historic, cultural and natural sights in the world. Every EF tour includes flights, ground transportation, comfortable hotel accommodations, most meals, and the guidance and support of a full-time tour director. EF is the only international educational tour program to be granted accreditation, allowing us to grant credits to teachers and students for participating in our tours.

Harold Said:

Anyone who has experience with EF Educational Tours?

We Answered:

One important detail you didn't mention was from what country you are taking this tour. EF Educational Tours can vary in quality from country to country.
EF is a big company and focus on numbers, not really individual participant satisfaction. When things like this become big business, the personal touch disappears. You become just another number!
I'm guessing that you'll be staying in home-stay accommodation during your trip, right? It's important to bear in mind that the families hosting you may also be in-it-for-the-money too. This business-type family atmosphere may not be to your liking, as it's not very warm or welcoming! I'm painting a pretty dark picture here, and you may find that this is not the case at all. But it's better to expect the worst, then it can only be better.

Home-stay is not usually more than two to a room, and you should get your own bed at least, if not your own room.

I hope you have a great trip.

Educational tours. Any students go on them to Europe?

We Answered:

I went on a London-Paris trip in high school from the US.

The trip is very well-planned, and the guides tend to be excellent. The only variable seems to be down-time, which is determined by the trip chaperones. In our group, we were allowed to explore as long as we stayed 3 to a group. I didn't have any close friends on the trip, and everyone else preferred shopping to really seeing anything, so I wasn't thrilled about that part. If she has friends on the trip though, I'm sure she'll have a great time.

I now have dual citizenship (with Sweden) and live in Norway permanently, so I guess the trip made a good impression on me anyway.
