  1. History Comes Alive

    Everything about our DC trip was magical! From the time we stepped on the bus to the time we stepped off the bus, everything was incredible. Seeing the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials in person brought all the history my students have learned off the page of a book and into meaningful context in their lives. Being in the great city of Washington DC and to experience history come alive before their eyes inspires me to be a better teacher and make their education more valuable.

  2. DC always delightful

    This was my fourth trip with EF Explore America to Washington DC. As always, I felt taken care of while my students had an incredible experience. I could not be more pleased with our overall experience and the value of this trip for my students. Thanks for showing my students all the amazing sights that our Nation's capital has to offer!

  3. Rad Time

    Our schedule was modified with because it rained during our trip, but everything else went smoothly. Our tour director was AWESOME, our accommodations were very nice, and the places we visited were worthwhile! I would definitely take a trip with EF again if I had the opportunity to!

  4. Amazing Experience

    I had SO much fun on my tour to Washington DC! I learned a lot and was happy that I chose to go. The Hotel was fantastic along with everywhere we went. I think this tour was a perfect balance of fun and education where we learned while having fun with our friends! The only thing I would have changed was one of my dinners, but not everything can be perfect!

  5. Beautiful but busy

    The capital was a cool experience in the fact that you got to see rooms that you may have seen on TV. The statues and murals were beautiful. It was very busy though and you felt rushed to get through and you had to hurry to look at stuff.

    On this trip to Washington D.C., it was an amazing experience going to see the Smithsonian Museums and the Monuments. However, I felt like the trip was rushed and didn't have enough time in the museums and going around touring. An example of this was when I went to the National Museum of American History, I only had 45 minutes in the whole museum. I felt like if the trip had more time, I could of enjoyed it more and it wouldn't have felt as rushed.
