    BRILLIANT. Would never consider using any other company. Excellent service. Helpful staff. Perfect! Same support staff for next year please! The hotel is brilliant. Such a great location and excellent staff. (Harrington) Nothing else needed. Both Amanda and Sarah are superb. Great that Sarah kept in contact throughout, even phoning on the morning before we left. First class service.

    The support offered was full and couldn't really be bettered.

    Sutton Grammar School


    Our trip was severely impacted by adverse weather conditions,
    yet despite all of that EST ensured we got the absolute most out of the trip. They were even able to offer a choice of restaurants when over 50% of the city was shut down. Could not be more pleased.

    Carshalton Boys Sports College


    Could not be more pleased.
    This was my 4th trip to DC. Would not consider using another company.
