What our teachers had to say about this destination
Costa Brava has everything for a successful school trip. Students love the culture, the visits, the pool in the hotel, the sun flower seeds lesson, the evening strolls and playing football at the beach until sunset ... There are great places to visit in Barcelona to make the best trip ever!
Calella is ideal for a school trip. Teachers can quite happily allow groups of students to shop in the pedestrianised street, the beach is lovely and the resort is quiet. It is a reasonable distance from Barcelona, which was perfect for our artists and linguists. (Locals were kind enough to speak Castillian to us!) The Flamenco Show at la Masia was most entertaining and the students loved it! A great choice, thank you. Timings for all the visits was perfect, thank you for that too. And your staff were excellent in dealing with my last minute panics too. The best tour company we have ever used, and I would wholeheartedly recommend Halsbury.
This was the best trip I have taken abroad. The students loved every minute of the activities planned for them during the week and everything ran very smoothly. The hotel's swimming pool is great to cool down after a day out and being so close to the beach means that we can take the students for a good game of football after dinner every evening.
