Safety first. Safety Always.

Your group's well-being is our top priority. That's why we've got you covered with our industry-leading Safety First program.

Round-the-clock Tour Director
Your Tour Director is with your group all day, every day, and trained to manage any on-tour emergencies. They'll support your group and have constant contact with our EF headquarters in Boston.

24-hour emergency support
For you, your travelers and their family, we're never out of reach with 24/7 emergency support. Our offices are ready for any situation, at any time.

Higher chaperone-to-student ratio
Having more eyes on what matters is easy when you have the best chaperone-to-student ratio in the industry on your side.

Professional overnight security
You'll be well rested and ready for the next day's adventure thanks to professional overnight security. They'll make sure your students are safe and sound (and staying in their rooms).

Standard inspections
Annual, on-site inspection of all vendors, hotels and restaurants is just the beginning. We perform background checks on all Tour Directors. We also require our motor coach and security companies to do the same for their staff who will be on tour with your group.
