What was your main aim for this trip?

We wanted to increase students’ understanding of the Cold War and Nazi Germany.

Why did you choose this destination?

It has a rich and varied history and I had been before, so knew it had a lot to offer.

On the third day, we visited the Topography of Terror and a former Stasi prison. On the final day, we visited the DDR Museum and the Berlin Wall. We also went bowling in the evening and went up the TV Tower.

They greatly helped with our students’ historical understanding and were enjoyable and engaging.

What will be your lasting memories of this trip?

How much the students enjoyed it and how much it meant to them. They had such a wonderful time and were so happy with the trip.

Why did you choose Halsbury for this trip?

I felt their trips were of a good value and they had several options for destinations.

How would you describe the experience of working with Halsbury on this trip?

Incredible! It was much better than I expected. Everything was very well planned and the communication was brilliant. I loved the app that they use. They did all the admin for me and took a lot of stress out of the organising.

Would you recommend Halsbury to your friends and colleagues?

Yes, I would do and already have. This is because they were well organised and we had no issues. The app was brilliant and the staff I worked with were friendly, helpful and organised.
