  1. Incredible tour

    This is a fast paced tour. There is so much to see and not always time to see everything when you visit locations. This us, of course, determined by the group leader and tour director.

    The tour guide, Goeff, was funny, knowledgable, and extremely patient. He learned faces quickly and always made sure that everyone was there.

    The students learned more about history and art than they probably did in the classroom!

    Thanks, EF!!

  2. Magnificent Manhattan

    Our tour guide was amazing! He was patient with our group, and he geared information to both the students and parents. We were able to learn so much that could not be done on a trip planned by ourselves. I look forward to our next trip to NYC and with EF!!!

  3. Marvelous Manhattan

    Our trip was Marvelous! The Tour Director was one of a kind. He always had a bit of history to throw in at every stop and worked hard to make sure we used every bit of our allotted time. He encouraged us to sample the local flavors and adventure out into new experiences. We felt safe and cared for throughout the trip. The city was alive and so were we.

  4. Once in a lifetime experience!

    This trip was amazing in every way. Our accommodations near Times Square were first rate. The tour guide helped us flawlessly use the public transportation. We experienced a true New York City trip. All agreed that Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, and Times Square were favorites!

  6. Great tour guide

    Joe was an amazing tour guide. He really understood the kids and tried to give them the best experience. My only concern is that it was a little expensive.
