EF offers safe, chaperoned tours of the US for our exchange students.  It’s a good time for students to look into this, as these tours fill up quickly!

Who can go on Discovery Tours?
In addition to EF exchange students, the trips are open to host siblings (ages 15-19) as well as any friends at school. EF students can travel on any tour within their host country. (Students living in the U.S. can go on the U.S. tours, students in the UK can go on the UK tours, and students in Ireland can go on the Ireland tours.)

What is the payment schedule?
For spring 2014 tours a $250 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking. The rest of the trip must be paid in full by 90 days before the trip departs. The regular deadline to sign up for the trip is also 90 days before departure; if you sign up after that point, you’ll have to pay a late fee.
