    Translation: Goodbye, friends! Your next destination awaits—home. But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?

    This was my first solo EF trip and it’s one I’ll never forget! The city was amazing and the tour guide made it even better! I was nervous about being with strangers, but they’re now my friends and I’m already planning more trips with them!

  • If you thought about it just book it!

      Priscilla, traveled Mar. 2023

    The only regret I’ve had with this trip was not booking it soon enough. It was just an absolutely amazing trip. I was a little nervous in the beginning being in a new country with a language I don’t know. Our tour guy Sofia, was just so much help while on the trip. Between planning excursions, showing us where to eat and making sure everything ran smoothly. ... See more
