  • What you say


    The service we received was outstanding. The organisation and smooth running of the trip was exceptional...Taking 43 kids to NYC is no easy task but EST definitely helped to make the process smooth and ensured the students had the time of their life.

    St Aidans CE High School 


    The whole process from the initial consultation to the final trip was outstanding. The trip was perfect for the students and provided them with a trip of a life time. The walking tour of the financial district was awesome and highly recommended we learnt so much.
