EF Discovery Trips

While most of your student’s best memories will be made with your family, your school and your community, EF students can also travel with other EF exchange students on our EF Discovery Trips. These trips take students to destinations all over the UK and Ireland where they can see the famous sights and experience another part of our great country.

Discovery Tours in Ireland

Students are spending time in a new country already, so why not see more of it? This is their opportunity to visit the country's most treasured cities and sights, experience the natural beauty of our country in person and discover the diverse cultures within their new home. The cost of each trip varies depending upon their host town as well as the trip they select. We offer the following trips:
