Fantastic for Theatre StudentsOur experience in London was simply amazing! We saw fantastic shows, met amazing new friends from both other schools from the US doing the same tour and of course our tour director and guides along the way. Not a moment was wasted, and my students took advantage of every second to explore, try new things, and experience London and the surrounding areas. We can't wait for our next EF trip!
Like Nothing ElseThis tour was an amazing experience for all of my students and me. Having lived in London in the past, I was excited to have my students get to know and love the city as I do. It was a brilliant time.
What I loved most about this tour is the focus on theatre. As I am a theatre teacher, we wanted to focus on London theatre. EF and this our provided that in abundance. We were able to structure our free time in a way that allowed us to see additional shows and spend time really exploring the city. I will definitely take students on this tour again. There is nothing like it!
Amazing trip!We had the trip of a lifetime. Curtain time in London was phenomenal and I would highly recommend this trip to all lovers of theatre. The sights, sound, food, Tour Director, etc. were amazing. Our tour director was so knowledgeable and did an excellent job at managing our group. We were able to see Wicked and Phantom of the Opera. We had a blast and traveled with a nice group from Miami. I can't wait to start our next tour. EF is the best! 100% recommended.
Take a bow!This tour was perfect! We saw amazing theater, had enlightening backstage tours, are amazing food, and walked our feet off! I was impressed at the way different aged travelers could both enjoy the same events like the Roman Baths and Stonehenge. I would love to do the same tour again! I am still laughing from the comedies that we saw.
Tour of a Lifetime!Curtain Time in London was the most amazing Tour! My daughter absolutely loved the experience. The Tour Guides and Group Leader where the best. The sights of London and the pictures my daughter shared with me were simply breath taking!
The full content of the tour, the hotels, the venues, she really enjoyed the double decker bus sight seeing. I would love to take the tour myself!
Bravo to EF Tours and I will highly recommend to family friends nationwide! Great Job EF Tours!
The Best Ever!We had an amazing experience on our Curtain Time in London Tour! We had the BEST tour guide we could have ever hoped for. The three theatre productions our groups were able to attend were OUTSTANDING, as well as the workshops the students participated in. Be prepared for smaller hotel rooms than we are used to in the US, and smaller meals of different tastes. Unfortunately, our visit took place at the time of a terrorist attack. This did change a few things on our itinerary, but we felt safe and our families were all kept informed. One would not have been able to have the experiences we did, without having a tour guide/company such as EF planning and accompanying us. Thank you to Miss E and EF Tours, we will always have AWESOME memories of London!
Standing OvationWe had an amazing Curtain time in London tour. The city is beautiful and the theatrical experiences were perfect. We enjoyed a trip to the Globe and a tour of Stratford on Avon. In addition, we attended two fabulous productions and thoroughly loved both. This was a great trip to immerse ourselves in the theater world of London as well as the culture and diversity of this vibrant city. Can't wait to come back!
Trip of a lifetimeOur 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!
Need a better screening process for chaperones!My daughter went to London on a school trip, we received an itinerary and was told it was a dry trip (for adults too) we were also told they wouldn’t have a lot of on there own time because of how much they were going to see and do. Well she went to London, but the teacher in charge had 4 of her friends come they were drunk every night. She (the teacher) was hungover and still drunk on the flight home, meals were changed or cancelled because there wasn’t vegan options (teacher and her friends were vegan. The food was all prepicked Already so the kids didn’t have a choice (but the chaperones did) they missed the ride on the eye (because the teacher in charge was off doing her own thing) they lost a girl on a bus (8 adults 22 kids but of cous they were preoccupied on there own vacation) the kids had a ridiculous amount of free time and were just left at the hotel or were told to find something to do. I’m sorry but I paid for a London experience my daughter was never there (none of the kids were) so how would they know what they could do? Isn’t that the job of the chaperones and tour guide? I am so incredibly dissapointed for the amount of money I paid she should have seen and done so much more instead she got to see her teacher hammered, ate chicken and mashed potatoes every night (except the night the teacher cancelled dinner because there weren’t vegan options and gave the kids 15 each and told them to get pizza) we had to pay extra money for tips but I’m not sure where that money ended up! This trip was not worth the money at all. My husband and I could have taken her and had a much better experience. If parents are looking at this it may seem like a great opportunity but trust me you are better off finding another way. You will be wasting money, or giving some adults (chaperones) a nice vacation on your dime
Great experience for the kids to seeOverall, 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.
