High School EF Tours Trip or GAPP Exchange Program?

Jump to last reply

What are your experiences with EF Tours? I can't find any really recent ones anywhere online.
I'm signed up and paid for about a third of my EF Tours trip with my high school. We leave summer of 2017, and spend about 12 days. The only problem is, my school's exchange program with our German partner school happens about the same time, except it lasts for 3 weeks and costs a third of the EF trip, and we have tons of freedom. I'm really conflicted about what to do. I know I could also spend a semester abroad in college over in Germany, and also taking the DSD would make a great addition to any resume. But I'd also like to visit England and France and everywhere else as well. I know the EF tour is going to be condensed.
--------------
The schedule (tl;dr)
Day 1: Fly to England
Day 2: London- Walking tour of The Strand, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Covent Garden
Day 3: London-Guided tour of Big Ben and Parliament, Piccadilly Circus, St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Changing of the Guard, and then an optional excursion to Windsor Castle.
Day 4: Canterbury-tour of Canterbury, Canterbury Cathedral, Cross the English Channel by ferry from Dover to Calais, Travel to Normandy Region
Day 6: Visit D-Day Beaches; See Pointe du Hoc, American Cemetery, Arromanches;Visit Caen Memorial, Travel to St. Malo
Day 7: Paris-Visit Chartres Cathedral, continue to Paris
Day 8: Paris-guided tour of Paris; See Place de la Concorde, Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Les Invalides, Eiffel Tower, optional excursion to Versailles (which I'm definitely doing)
Day 9: Paris-Lourve, Latin Quarter, Notre Dame Cathedral
Then we have a 2 day optional addition to Amsterdam.
Day 10: Amsterdam-travel by train, walking tour, city canals
Day 11: Amsterdam-guided tour, Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum
Day 12: home

While on the exchange trip, we'll stay with a host family in Berlin, visit the school a few times, travel to Iceland, and then have lots of free time on hand, while doing other things with our host families.

Sorry if this is a lot, thanks!
