Top big travel moment from tour?
Stepping into Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre—that has been on my bucket list for a long time. I’ve seen several videos of productions performed on that stage, but to physically be wrapped in the magic of that space gave me goosebumps. I admittedly shed some happy tears with a fellow Group Leader from the other school we traveled with. It was such a special, shared moment.
Top small travel moment from tour?
In York, while walking to meet up with the group at the bus, I passed by a cute tea shop with a table outside full of beautiful china with unfinished crêpes and cakes from customers who had just left. I captured a picture and when I returned to the bus and shared it with my daughter, she exclaimed that that was where she and her group had lunch, and it was actually their table setting! When asked what their favorite small moment was from tour, it was having lunch at this tea shop.
How did your training tour help prepare you for your student tour?
First of all, thank you EF for the gift of a training tour!!! The way it was set up to mimic a student tour eased my mind and instilled some confidence for traveling with students. The morning classroom sessions were very informative on the inner workings of EF and provided a more personal and trusted connection to the company.
