International Classics Trips For Schools

Classics Trips

Discover some of the most interesting classical civilisations as you visit ancient sites throughout Italy and Greece. A Classics Trip can help students understand the links between areas such as town planning, architecture and social structure, as well as better appreciate visions of classical culture which can be found in plays and other works of the time.

Classics Trips with Rayburn Tours

  • Personal Pre-Trip Service to Plan
    and Launch Your Bespoke Trip
  • From the moment you start planning you will benefit from our school travel expertise, curriculum understanding and destination knowledge. Your enquiry will put you in touch with a specialist, who will work to understand the objectives of your trip. Together we will help you launch the trip to students and parents and once you’ve booked, we will plan your bespoke itinerary and pre-book everything on your behalf – that can include travel, accommodation, visits, insurance and much more!

  • Personal Safety and Financial Security
  • You can rest assured that your groups’ safety is our number one priority and all of our trips exceed the benchmark for safe school travel as set out by the School Travel Forum – and an independent annual audit confirms this! In addition, ABTA bonding and ATOL licensing means your money is in safe hands.

  • Proven Party Leader Support
    Throughout Your Trip
  • Our 24-hour emergency telephone number ensures that you can reach a member of the Rayburn Tours team at any time, day or night, in the event of an emergency. An extra helping hand on your trip is also available in the form of a courier and so far in 2013 our customers have rated our on-tour staff as 5 out of 5! You know you’ll get a good service when you hear that other teachers said, “her attendance on our trip went a very long way to ensuring it was a success” and “using such an experienced and friendly courier takes a lot of the stresses and strains out of the trip.”

    Don’t just take our word for it…
    In 2013, our customers rated their overall touring experience as 5 out of 5 and our service as 4.5 out of 5.

“Rayburn has always proven to be excellent value for money, without compromising quality or customer service.”

Miss Sarah Holliday, May 2014 - Bay of Naples and Sicily

“Being able to lead the students around Pompeii, and seeing their interest at putting everything that they had just heard or read about, into the real life context.”

Clare McDonnell, October 2014 - Rome and the Bay of Naples
