International Choir Tours

International Choir Tours

There’s nothing more inspiring for choirs than performing in some of the world’s most renowned venues in stunning locations.

We’re pleased to offer a great variety of destinations for choral groups, working with you to design a tour that’s perfectly suited to your specific needs, whatever your repertoire.

From the prestigious surroundings of St Stephen’s Basilica to the scenic gardens of Jardin du Luxembourg, you’ll have your pick of sacred basilicas, majestic cathedrals and charming outdoor venues to perform in. We’re well accustomed to the needs of choirs and use our years of experience and knowledge to recommend the best venues, accommodation and method of transport for your group.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is our courier fully DBS (formerly CRB) checked?

    Our Trip Couriers, Field Study Tutors and History Tour Guides, with UK citizenship, have an enhanced DBS check. Non UK citizenship couriers cannot be checked under the DBS scheme. Rayburn Tours will seek confirmation that Trip Couriers are suitable for working with children by liaising with relevant foreign agents and monitoring group feedback.

  • Do your hotels comply with our Local Authority’s guidelines?

    All hotels are audited to standards set by the School Travel Forum (STF), this criteria is based on information and guidance from educational authorities. Whilst local laws and standards have to be taken into consideration, as they may differ from country to country, our standards do not. We are happy to provide copies of our hotel audits should you wish to see them.
  • What should be included in my risk assessment?

    Start by identifying the potential hazards before deciding on the appropriate precautions to minimize the potential risk for your group. Once identified, record your findings and implement the precautions. Specific requirements are available from your Local Authority.
  • What support do you have in place in the event of a crisis situation?

    In the unlikely event that your group is involved in a crisis situation during your tour, you can be assured that Rayburn Tours have a Crisis Management System in place which is fully supported by ABTA, ATOL and Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd. In 2010 our robust crisis management system was successfully implemented following the Eyjafjallajӧkull volcanic eruption in Iceland and 290 passengers were quickly and efficiently repatriated – this gives you the reassurance that support is on-hand in exceptional circumstances.
