As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

Superb 4 day trip to Barca / Salou 24th September. Travelled with 36 pupils who had a fantastic time at the Cambrills Sports Village, fixtures, coaching,theme park, nou camp etc. Every aspect of the tour was superbly organised and went to plan and all as described. Great communication, planning and value for money from Halsbury. I will be doing the same again next year with them. Brilliant trip, thank you to Halsbury, Kate, Maria for a hassle free well organised school tour. — Wheelers Lane Technology College , September 2023
