The Grand Tour of Ireland was such an amazing trip and I met so many great people! The landscapes were beautiful and I loved being able to just get to Ireland and have the entire trip planned for me already.

I booked this sort of last minute and wasn't sure what to expect. It was absolutely amazing! The hotels were nicer than I thought they were going to be and that was the biggest concern I had! Our Tour Director guy was incredible too and was always around to help out and grab a beer once in a while. Even though Innsbruck wasn't heavily advertised it was probably my favorite city! It was so gorgeous and we got some real good food. Definitely don't miss the chance to check out 4 great countries!

One of the best experiences of my life. Peru’s culture and sites were absolutely amazing. The tour director made the trip super stress free and I made friends for life. EF was amazing the whole time from start to finish. Already booked my next trip to Croatia with them!!

Honestly the best travel company for young adults. I'm going on my third trip in a couple of weeks (Peru!) and I am so excited. These trips literally have changed my life because of the people I've met and the places I've been to. They make it so easy by booking your flights and arranging all transportation and hotels. They make sure you see enough in every country without feeling like it's too fast paced. You always have plenty of free time too. I've gone on every trip on my own and have always met like-minded people to hang out with. It's literally what you make of it, if you want it to be a party trip then go out every night. Otherwise don't. You'll find people to do stuff with either way. 100/10 recommend.

This trip was the European Road trip that was specifically done for New Years. It took us on a road trip through Amsterdam, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France and London.

The trip was truely an experience which was only made amazing due to the awesome time we had with our tour director Tyson Monfredini. The man is overall the best director ive ever taken a trip with. He is so unbelievably helpful in all things and is super down to earth. Unlike directors who are there just to do their jobs and thats it; Tyson really makes you feel like family. He will go out with you to explore the city, give you advice and overall act like a true friend.

The trip involves visiting multiple cites via a couch bus. After so much time traveling you create a bond with the individuals who are on the trip and you might end up doing other trips with some of those people.

You will explore the cities, clubs, bars, new foods, cultures and so much more.

I truly recommended this trip for a person who wants to hit the road and explore.

If you want check out my channel and look at some of the trips I have taken. Each place is in its own segments and I have more videos I need to still need to post.
