School Christmas Markets Trips to Bruges

A small city that packs a seriously festive punch

Where it feels like Christmas every day
From £179pp i

Set against the winding canals and medieval buildings, Bruges’ markets are the epitome of Christmas wonderment. As you walk through the snow-dusted streets and gaze into the splendid displays of traditional Belgian chocolate, it’s hard not to feel the festive spirit on a school Christmas Markets trip to Bruges. When night falls, ice skate under a barrage of sparkling lights, whilst the smell of waffles and spiced gingerbread billows out from nearby stalls.

FAQs about this tour

Find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

  • Is our Tour Manager fully DBS (formerly CRB) checked?

    Our Tour Managers, Field Study Tutors and History Tour Guides, with UK citizenship, have an enhanced DBS check. Non UK citizenship Tour Managers cannot be checked under the DBS scheme. Rayburn Tours will seek confirmation that Tour Managers are suitable for working with children by liaising with relevant foreign agents and monitoring group feedback.

  • 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.

  • Are seatbelts provided on foreign coaches?

    This depends on the country where you are visiting and their local laws. However, we will always endeavour to use coach companies who use coaches fitted with seatbelts.

  • Do you provide risk assessments for hotels?

    Rayburn Tours have individual audits which are completed on every hotel/accommodation centre which we use. We are more than happy for you to see this should you wish. Our audits cover fire safety, means of escape and general safety.
