Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

Tour Information

For their rugby tour to Estonia the players from English & American RFC were based in Estonia’s capital Tallinn, on what was their 13th consecutive tour with Burleigh Travel. The city enjoys a rich cultural heritage and unique atmosphere characterised by its wealth of historical buildings such as the medieval town hall, Toompea Castle and Kadriorg Park.

Within the old city walls cobbled alleyways lead to picturesque squares which house an abundance of lively bars, nightclubs and cafés all serving beer at low prices. The entertainment area is all situated off the ‘Old Town Square’ making a pub crawl extremely easy. More cultured than many of its Eastern European rivals, Tallinn has a definite Scandinavian influence due to its proximity to Finland.

E&A sightseeing in Tallinn

Having assembled at Gatwick Airport the group made their way to Estonia where on arrival the group were given an interesting and informative briefing about Tallinn. After a short transfer to their accommodation, the rest of the night was free to explore the various nightlife on offer. A visit to one of the city’s ‘gentleman’s clubs’ was on most people’s itinerary.

Having had a free day for sightseeing the groups third day was the day of the match and after breakfast the players sampled the traditional ‘morning sauna’ before travelling to their fixture. In a hard fought contest the tourists were victorious and after the match time was spent with the hosts where the massive cultural differences of the two teams was disguised after several beers.E&A post match v Tallinn Tigers

In the evening the group headed for the ‘Old Town Square’ to continue their celebrations in the many bars and clubs located around this area.

For their final full day in Estonia the group travelled out of the city to enjoy the countryside and visit a hotel located by one of Estonia’s many lakes. The day was spent swimming followed by a sauna and a meal in the hotel in this picturesque setting. With temperatures in the high 70’s the climate felt more Mediterranean than Baltic and the group gained an insight into the other opportunities outside of the city of Tallinn in what was a very memorable tour.
