Concert Tours to
Beijing and Shanghai

Discover the true essence of China and its fascinating contradictions on a concert tour to Beijing and Shanghai.

Whilst Beijing's broad streets are lined with beautiful palaces, fine houses and enchanting gardens, the city has reinvented itself many times.

At its heart is the huge Tiananmen Square and the once ‘Forbidden City', an immense complex of buildings to house the imperial court. Further afield you can visit the charming lakeside Summer Palace or watch the antics of the much-loved pandas at the zoo, finishing with the city’s famous speciality, crispy Peking Duck!

As China's largest city, Shanghai is an eclectic mix of historic buildings and ultra-modern skyscrapers, split into two sections by the Huangpu River. To the west is the area once known as the ‘Paris of the Orient’ which still retains its grand 19th century buildings, whilst to the east grow the futuristic skyscrapers of Pudong.

Visit the Nanjing road for the best shopping in China or explore the leafy lanes of the French concession, before finding a little peace in the Jade Buddha Temple or the traditional Yuyuan Gardens. To finish, enjoy an evening stroll along the Bund with its lively atmosphere and views across to the lights of Pudong.

A concert tour to Beijing and Shanghai is guaranteed to be a highlight of any musician's career!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I talk to Rayburn Tours whilst out on tour?

    Yes, a 24-hour emergency phone number will be provided in your final documents pack and one of our experienced members of staff will be happy to help with any problems you have whilst out on tour.

  • What does our insurance cover us for?

    Our insurance providers offer comprehensive cover to our groups for the duration of their tour and is tailored specifically for schools, with specialist insurance policies for individual tour types. As with any insurance cover, it is vital that you read through the terms and conditions and that you declare any relevant information as requested. Please see our insurance page for further information and to see what is covered. For groups opting to take their own insurance, we highly recommend that you read all inclusions and exclusions prior to departure.

  • Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?

    Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum. We work with the hotels and agents to endeavour to ensure that our standards are met.
  • What would happen if our flights are delayed or cancelled?

    In the event that your flights are cancelled or delayed by the airline, then the airline will offer us an alternative flight for your group and payment under the delayed departure section of your insurance would be applicable. EU airlines and carriers are subject to the EU Directive regulation 216/2004. Insurance policies do cover delayed flights and in the first instance party leaders would need to call the insurance company for further details.

    For groups travelling with our insurance (provided by Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd) we would be able to call on your behalf. Delayed cover through Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd entitles each person to claim up to £100, dependent on the length of delay, which can then be used to offset any additional expenses that may have been incurred.

    We will offer your group continued support via our 24-hour emergency phone; we will liaise with our contacts at the relevant airline and accommodation centres, if necessary, and continue to communicate with you throughout until your flight departs.
