Athens, the enchanting capital of Greece, has a recorded history dating back nearly three and a half millennia. Classical Athens was a powerful city state and a centre for arts, learning and philosophy.

I think it's so important for children to learn about different cultures, and enabling them to go out and experience this first hand is what makes working at Halsbury so special. – Emma Gray da Silva Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

We highly recommend this visit for both pupils of all ages and teachers. Salamanca is a very compact and manageable city with many points of interest and is easily combined with other historical towns in the area. An additional recommendation is to experience genuinely delicious and authentic tapas in the restaurant Hispania 20 near the main square. They are extremely accommodating to large groups and take into consideration all dietary requirements and allergies as well as offering tapas from all regions of Spain. Overall, we are hugely impressed with your organisation and service and are sure to use your company again. — The Godolphin and Latymer School , September 2019
