Overall the trip was amazing. EF tours did a great job with keeping us informed if there were changes. They provide useful tips and recommendations for travel and to prepare for departure. The price was reasonable priced and included everything. Our only vice with the trip was there were so many destination to see and set time frames to be at each one that we felt rushed through some sites. We felt we were unable to enjoy or take in the full experience or nostalgia from each site.

My son just came home from this tour, and he wants to go back!!! This kid has not, and I mean has not stopped talking about how much he enjoyed this tour. He actually said he is sad its over!!! He made new friendships with others kids, and this is sure a memory to last a lifetime!!

This was my first EF tour. I went in knowing that it was going to be fast paced, and it definitely was. We got a taste of every place we stopped at. I would have loved to have more time at each place, but travelling with middle school students, and their limited attention span, this was perfect. The food in the restaurants was good, not great. I would definitely go on more tours in the future.

Best of England was the perfect balance of getting the fast paced, exciting, city experience and the more relaxing country side experience. Our group enjoyed the opportunity to see "Wicked" in the West End of London, we frolicked around Stonehenge, and learned a lot about the Romans, the Medieval Kings, Shakespeare, and so much more!

Once in a Lifetime Opportunity!
Normally I would not be able to afford a really nice trip to England and this trip was a fairly good price and included a lot in the short amount of time we were there. I loved specifically London and seeing a lot of the historic aspects of the city. Bath was also very beautiful but I wish we had more time there and in Oxford. Shakespeare's home was interesting but there was not a lot of history there so it was kind of disappointing. We had a lot of free time to explore which was also very nice.

Fantastic overview of England
We had an amazing tour of England! The students saw Bath, Stonehenge, Stratford, London, Oxford, etc... It was fast paced but enjoyable. Choose this tour if you're looking to introduce students to England without overwhelming them. This would make a great tour for a first time group leader as well.

This tour is honestly one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. Not only did I experience the culture and history of the country, I made great friendships and had the time of my life.

Incredible Tour, Incredible Company
I chose this tour as my first with EF because I had been to London in the past, and I knew that my students would love their experience there, as well as the other sights that they would see while on this tour. I was so glad that I chose this tour, as we had an incredibly memorable time while on tour with Dionne, our tour director. She was incredible and recognized and respected my knowledge of the city, allowing me to show my students a few places that weren't necessarily on the beaten path. Everything went smoothly, and aside from getting stuck in an elevator at one of our hotels, my students loved the accommodations, which were located close to public transport. I can't say enough good things about our trip, and I love that I was able to share one of my favorite cities with my students. Thank you so much for such a memorable experience!

Lots crammed into a relatively short time. Lots of travel time on the bus to various sites. Guide was knowledgeable and helpful. Some of the restaurant choices for dinners was kind of disappointing. Would have liked a bit more free time in some of our stops, they felt kind of rushed. Overall a good trip.
