New York & Washington in action – an itinerary in a nutshell

Last updated: Apr 15th, 2019

At Rayburn Tours, we live to create the ultimate trip. An experience to remember. One that will enhance your singers’ understanding of the world around them, support their learning and leave them with memories to last a lifetime.

A key part of this is to work with you to craft an itinerary around you that will maximise on learning outcomes, taking full advantage of your time out in resort and filling it with special performance opportunities, iconic sites, culture and value.
