Take the paths less traveled

Traveling with EF isn’t just about going places and seeing things. It’s about discovering the authentic experiences and off-the-beaten-path destinations that you didn’t even know were on your bucket list. And on our tours that go beyond the beaten path, which feature our favorite hidden gems and little-known spots, you and your students can connect with the surrounding culture the way only a local could.

Learn from a person, not a plaque

Here are some of the makers you’ll meet.

Annika: Street art advocate

Bristol, England is a mecca for mural artists thanks to its (elusive) hometown hero: Banksy. Local street artists like Annika love showing travelers the spray-painted streets of their city, and even help them channel their creativity through street art workshops. Annika’s favorite thing about Bristol? You never see the same city twice.

Antonio: Buffalo mozzarella master

If you want to see how traditional buffalo mozzarella is made, make a pilgrimage to Italy’s Campania region. There you’ll find cheesemaker Antonio—alongwith plenty of water buffalo. Here you and your students can experience the generations-old process of making mozzarella, and sample it straight from the source.
