Epic FAIL !!!This tour was an epic-fail. It was poorly coordinated. I am a disabled veteran and my limbs do not function as they use to. I was in constant pain and my medication did very little because of the constant aggravation. The tour was set up so that the tour guide led us on long "walking" tours almost every single day (covering miles) with short rides on the subway and more walking.
The guide claimed that the historical sites could only be reached by foot but the bus driver could have dropped us off closer to a bus or subway station. There were several bus stops that were closer to most of the historical sites once we reached them and we could have avoided walking up hills and outdoor stairs to get to and from the sites. It made it worse for many after reaching the site and there was more walking around, up and down many steps just to see the sites. We are educators majoring in leadership and or curriculum at a Christian university, there was no need to waste time and energy visiting so many churches. I expected to be educated not drained !!!Erin, President

ReformationTour did not live up to my previous positive EF experiences.
Bus transportation was awful - one day without a bus and then squeezed in - to small bus).
Not enough guided city tours.
Last day was to stressful with to much driving and not enough sight seeing.
Hotels were very good, but to far located from the towns and cities we visited.
Flights were with excellent airline carriers, but to many layovers.
