School Spanish Culture Trip to Granada

Halsbury Sticker

Take a Spanish school trip to Granada to give your students the experience of learning Spanish in this stunning city at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range!

Its narrow streets, traditional tapas bars and Arab architecture combine to create a city of both character and beauty. The highlight of a trip to Granada is a visit to the World Heritage Site of the Alhambra palace, where students can learn about the amazing history of this building and marvel at the artistry of the walls, arches and columns.

A university town, Granada has a very friendly population that welcomes young people, so your students will feel comfortable speaking and practising their Spanish in everyday situations. And if you would like your students to really focus on improving their level of Spanish ahead of their exams, you may be interested in our Language Study Trip to Granada, which includes language lessons and host family accommodation.

Creating your perfect trip

Your quote will be put together by an experienced Tour Adviser who’ll be an expert in the subject area and will know the destination really well too. They’ll work with you to create a trip to suit your group’s needs and meet your learning objectives.

Launching your trip to parents and students

The next step is to get your trip approved and then get students signed up to it. Our ‘Trip Launch Pack’ will help you with this step. This is full of resources (all free to download) designed to make your life easier at this crucial point in the trip planning process.

After you’ve booked

Once you’ve booked, your dedicated Itinerary Coordinator will start work on the finer details. They’ll make sure your itinerary makes the most of your time and they’ll take on most of the admin tasks for your trip (freeing you up to do what you do best – teach).

Support while you’re away

From lost property to properly lost, we’ll always be on the end of the phone while you’re out on the trip. You’ll get a final info pack before you go, as well as access to all your trip documents via the Vamoos app.

After your trip
We’ll ask you for feedback, so we can improve our service. Let’s start planning your next trip too, so parents have plenty of time to pay (and so it’s less stressful for you). And don’t forget to head to our resources hub to continue the learning back in the classroom.
