I completely forgot to ever write a review to this company. I just want to say thank you so much for the trip you all provided to my daughter and all of class in 2018 to London. Children need more trips such as these; to broaden their horizons, expand culturally, and step outside their own worlds and become more well-rounded. The cost was so cheap for the priceless and most importantly safe experience you all provided. Thank you so much!! I recommend EF tours to anyone that is looking to enhance their child's education.

Trip overall was awesome! Our tour director was wonderful. So much to see & the kids loved it! My only issue was the size of the group. Our group had 10 & we met up with 2 other schools; 37 additional ppl. Way too many. The poor director had to talk over everyone & some students were just rude. 47 in a group & constantly having to stop & wait for everyone to catch up is time consuming.
If you plan to go, wear comfy shoes & take a water bottle. It's a walking tour of London & it's fantastic!

Marching Through London
If I knew that we were going to be marched around London and shown the outside of famous places without actually seeing the inside, like the tower and A few famous cathedrals. I would have saved the money and gone on my own saved my feet. The rooms were the nastiest rooms I have ever been in at the Premier Inn. We were also supposed to taste food from the UK, but out of 9 days we only had 4 different meals. If I want to eat curry twice I would have gone to India! And not once did we get fish and chips, i paid for that on my own! EF tours were disappointing, however our guide was very knowledgeable and agreeable. She was good.

The Bard Spoke To Us
This trip is everything I could have hoped for and more as a huge Shakespeare fan. The kiddos, who aren't as much of a fan of The Bard as I am, discovered a new appreciation for what he accomplished and his influence on culture throughout the world. I would have gone with a five out five in both overall experience and value, but considering the dinners were part of what the kiddos paid for ahead of time, I couldn't give a perfect rating; the food was mostly flavorless and left everyone feeling hungry for more food and for food that included some seasoning. Four out of five is still very much earned, because absolutely everything else about the trip was fantastic. Every site we saw, the amazing Gavin as our Tour Director, and all the priceless memories the kiddos made left me with a renewed sense of wonder and enthusiasm for educating and for Shakespeare. Take this trip and experience Shakespeare at his finest.

Amazing Experience, terrible flight logistics
The experience in London was amazing my tour director was amazing, I miss her already. The only problem was the flight logistics for the flight back when we were sent to Frankfurt and then we had to run to a flight that was almost gone when we landed.

Trip of a lifetime
Our EF tour was an amazing experience! We saw so much in only 5 days. The details of travel around the city as well as different tour stops were all planned out in advance making our days run smoothly. Our tour guide was extremely helpful in helping us navigate the city even during our free time. He made every effort to be accommodating to special requests. Our tours and activities were all engaging and worth our time. One of the best trips I've ever been on!

Great experience for the kids to see
Overall, the kids loved seeing London and experiencing the workshops and shows; however, I felt that the flights alone took up two days of being on the ground doing things. I also wasn't thrilled with the location of our hotel. I get that it was selected for cost, but everyone on my tour said that would be willing to pay more for a better hotel location.
Stratford was rushed. We were only there for about 3 hours. For a theatre tour, more focus should be on theatre-related things. Seeing a show at RSC would have been wonderful. Also, seeing a show at The Globe along with the workshop.
I feel like for the tour being called Curtain Time in London there were only 2 of the days designated for theatre.
Also, the dinner options were not something that satisfied a general group. For kids who are picky, Asian for two of the nights was not a good idea.
What we did love about the tour was the tour director, the two workshops, and the shows.
We paid a lot of money for there to be an awful lot of free time (where we had to spend more money). I have done the Broadway and the Arts tour and felt as though we got more for our money on that tour.

Best Tour Guide
It was a whirlwind tour, and we could have stayed another month. Our tour leader
was an incredible guide, and we really wish she led adult groups as well. From the beginning to the end; it was educational and so much fun.

The Curtian Time tour was amazing! The students learned so much and loved going to the historical sites, museums, and shopping.

Our EF tour director was amazing. I think I would have the last night not be one where the group sees a play and then has to be up and checked out of the hotel at 6:30 am. I would have liked a more centralized hotel area as well. Loved the choices of shows that we saw. Food was pretty good. A day where nothing was scheduled all day and night would have been fantastic so that we could not feel as rushed through museums and tours. All the bus drivers were super nice as well.
