  1. Standing Ovation

    We 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!

  2. Fantastic for Theatre Students

    Our 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!

  3. Like Nothing Else

    This 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
