ALERT
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,

University Rugby Tours to Bulgaria

Burleigh Travel offer university rugby tours to Sofia, Bulgaria's capital city, and the highest capital in Europe. Bulgaria has four distinct seasons with dry, hot summers and snowy winters.  For university rugby tours, Sofia is an ideal destination as it is well known for its fantastic nightlife and cheap alcohol; bars are popular in the evening hours until midnight after which the crowd moves to the night clubs. While present everywhere, bars and nightclubs are concentrated in the central part of the city which makes it easy to explore several different places in one outing and on foot. Sofia ticks all the boxes to make for a great university rugby tour and will ensure an unforgettable experience for you and your players.

University rugby tours will no doubt enjoy the historic culture and day trips Bulgaria has to offer including the Aleksander Nevski Church, Municipal Baths, and the Zhersky Bazaar. In summer a visit to the Pancharevo Lake is recommended where you can enjoy different water sports; rowing, surfing and water skiing. You can also enjoy a pedalo ride or spend some time sunbathing along the 5km lake which is located about 15km south of Sofia.

Some of our staff have visited Bulgaria on familiarisation visits so are therefore well-equipped to draw on their first hand experience of Bulgaria in order to answer any queries you may have regarding this destination.  They will be more than happy to discuss the countries suitability as a university sports tour destination in more detail with you.
