Our Founder: Bertil Hult

His first business was selling T-shirts

Our Story

It all started with a cup of coffee. 

Running errands for his boss in London is how a young Swedish man named Bertil Hult learned English. That discovery inspired him to launch EF Education First in 1965. 

Today, we’re the world’s largest private education company with over 52,000 employees, broadening horizons through travel, language learning, and schools. But at our heart, we’re the same family-run business we’ve always been, still driven by the idea that started it all: The best way to learn about our world is to experience it. 

The EF Go Ahead Tours difference

At EF Go Ahead Tours, we want to empower everyone to see the world. That’s why each of our 175 (and counting) guided trips is designed with one thing in mind: you. From providing the most eye-opening experiences at affordable prices to partnering with the best guides out there, we’ve got you covered at every step. Welcome to our travel family.
