Learn all about our independent, family-run business!

Group travel specialists since 1965

Welcome to Rayburn Tours, where the art of travel has been our forte since 1965. We’re not your average tour company – we’re a dynamic, family-run business born out of a desire to offer rich and unforgettable experiences.

Today, our family has grown to over 100 people who set out to craft trips that are fresh, exciting and downright unforgettable! And through years of experience and exploration, we organise the lot – educational escapades, ski-slope adventures and spirited sports tours, as well as the electric energy of adult and youth concert tours. Whatever your group’s adventure, we’re here to shake up the ordinary! All our tours are tailor-made to match the preferences and personality of your group. No two groups are ever the same, so why should our tours be?

Learn more about who we are, who we know, what we do, what we’ve done and how we can be the architects of your next adventure!

This was our first choir trip to the Edinburgh Fringe along with Rayburn Travel, it was a year in the planning. The weekend went better than anyone could have hoped or even dreamed of. Rayburn arranged the accommodation, venues, coach travel and the group meal, all of which were first class. Having the accompanying support of Arianna from Rayburn for the weekend was a great comfort and help and nothing was too much trouble.

Wellingborough Community Gospel Choir

This wonderful island contains some impressive natural wonders which provide students with hugely memorable experiences. Not only are these hugely relevant to the geography curriculum but Rayburn Tours are always a reliable and experienced company to work with there.

Keith Turnbull

Completed a four day school trip to Sicily through Rayburn just before half-term. Anna and Silvia were incredibly efficient and helpful in organising all aspects of the trip and liaising with us beforehand, and every excursion we had planned ran incredibly smoothly. Fabulous place to go for a school trip. It was a brilliant cultural eye-opener for a lot of our students. As a school there is no doubt we will use Rayburn again. Cannot recommend highly enough.
