Ef Tour 10 days in Bavaria then 15 in Köthen

Jump to last reply

I am signed up for a ef tour this summer with some classmates and my german teacher and I have a few questions. We depart from the US June 21st and depart from Frankfurt July 1st. Here is my itinerary http://www.eftours.com/tour-website/1511653XX
We have purchased all the additional excursions Mt Pilatus and The Salzburg mines. I am beyond excited for this tour mainly because I have never been outside of Washington, California, And Nevada but also because it's always been a dream to visit Germany and 4 years of german class has been getting me pumped. And also this year I met a foreign exchange student from Germany in my school, we became close and I am now staying behind the tour 15 days. So on July 1st I will be getting picked up at the Frankfurt airport by her and her family and then drive to their house in Köthen , Germany. I will depart from Berlin on July 15th. Total length 25 days.

So here are my questions. !!
SPENDING MONEY!? How much to not worry too much. I haven't planned the 15 days in Köthen yet but I'm sure we will doing things most of the time.

PACKING TIPS? Obviously clothes and hygiene stuff but what's Germany's summer like? Will it be insanely hot?? And anything I might forget to pack in general? Anything I'd wish I brought? 25 days in Germany

FREE TIME? With choosing all the additional excursions what will the free time be like with ef? And when do we usually get going in the morning/ end?

WILL I BE WITH OTHER STUDENTS?? I've read reviews of schools from across the US going on the same tour(by like random) and I'm wondering if this will happen to me? I think it would be really awesome meeting people on the tour.

CAN WE LEAVE OFF TOUR HOURS? Say after we visit the Olympic stadium and we are back at our hotel in Munich and it's 7pm, would we be able to go out and check out the city?

Thanks for reading, hope for some feedback and I'm sure I'll think of more questions.
