The home of the passionate flamenco, the dramatic bullfight, beautiful Moorish architecture and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains; for many this region encapsulates the essence of Spain. All this lies only miles inland from the Costa del Sol, which in complete contrast is one of Europe’s most developed holiday resorts.

    A school trip to Andalucia has it all; whether you choose the coastal resorts with all their facilities or the charming inland towns as your base there is a diversity of attractions, and places to visit that will captivate your language group.

  • What you say

    Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, great range of visits. Paella group and flamenco was all delivered in Spanish which was excellent, and the students were able to follow most of it. They were both highlights of the trip.

    George Stephenson High School - Oct 17


    Particularly pleased with the Flamenco lesson - a real success, and the visit to the Olive Oil factory was great fun.  I was most impressed by the service provided by EST throughout the booking and planning process. It was the most relaxing school trip I have ever been on because everything was organised and ran smoothly.

    Guildford High School - Oct 15


    Both consultants were fantastic and very patient with me as we dealt with the various problems of passports and name changes...(the itinerary) was exactly what I asked for- perfect

    Kineton High School - Oct 15


    We had a great time, plus excellent weather. Visits were very educational and guides kept girls interested.
