Cultural Trips for Schools

Cultural Trips for Schools

Whilst we specialise in Educational trips, we understand that some teachers just want to take their students away and immerse them in a totally new and unique culture. Our cultural trips for schools offer groups the chance to do just that.

As non-subject specific trips, you can enjoy a more relaxed ‘look and see’ approach without the need to match your visits to the curriculum.

Groups can gain an insight into a new culture, its people and their way of life, as well as see the sights and visit the attractions of some of the world’s most exciting destinations. A cultural trip also opens the experience up to a wider audience – a great way to make up the numbers and let students of all subjects get involved.

Discover the diverse history of Berlin and how it’s shaped the city and its people today, explore the bohemian surroundings of Paris from its world-renowned art galleries to the streets of Montmartre, or lose yourself in the seaside city of Barcelona as you venture into its colourful markets and scenic parks.

The options are endless, so whether you have a destination in mind or you’d like us to recommend one, we’ll work with you to create a bespoke itinerary that’s perfect for your group.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I need to do to ensure safe travel for my group?

    Information is available from your Local Authority on what is expected from party leaders on a school trip. In addition, we are happy to assist you in ensuring that you have all of the necessary information to successfully assess risks and ensure a safe trip for you and your group. Further advice and information can be found on the OEAP National Guidance website.
  • What are you responsible for?

    The DfE’s guidance for safe travel highlights the need for all those involved with the organisation and running of a tour to work together as a team. This is our aim at Rayburn Tours, to work together with our party leaders to ensure our groups' safety and peace of mind.

  • 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.

  • 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.
