Why choose Rayburn Tours for your next Concert Tour?
The Rayburn Tours Experience
Music and performance are the focal point of any concert tour - and we never forget it! We take time to realise your performance aims and share our first-hand knowledge of destinations with you. Our team is made up of linguists, musicians and former teachers, which helps us to understand exactly what you want from your tour and how to get it!
We offer a completely tailored service and work closely with you to build a tour that your performers will thoroughly enjoy. Our specialist consultants will advise you on the various options and, after finalising your performances, simply select the activities which appeal to your group. Then sit back, relax and we’ll make all the reservations.
Group leader support
Our aim is to make your role as tour leader as easy as possible and, throughout your tour preparation, you’ll have one to one support from one of our specialist Tour Co-ordinators. Once on tour, you’ll also have 24-hour emergency support from our head office in the UK.
Performance venues to suit you
The venues featured in this brochure have been selected to demonstrate the range of performance opportunities we can offer. We have long standing relationships with an unequalled range of venue organisers across the world, from prestigious cathedrals to warm and welcoming communities, and can therefore cater for all types of ensemble. We’ll ask for a recording to assess which venues would be most suitable for your group.
