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,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Tour Destinations in Barbados

West Coast – Holetown Area – this is generally where schools and junior groups will choose to stay as it is slightly quieter than the lively South Coast. Groups will usually stay within walking distance of Holetown with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from as well as shops and a supermarket for provisions.

South Coast – St Lawrence Gap Area – this is where you will find the main bars and a lively atmosphere!  You are sure to receive a friendly welcome here and a couple of bars we would recommend are The Jammin’ Bar & Cafe Sol.

Wherever your group is based in Barbados there are several activities for you to enjoy on the island to add to what is sure to be a memorable tour.

It would be unjust to the island to describe Barbados as anything less then paraidse. It's welcoming culture, white sand beaches, water based excursions and passion for sport make it one of the top destinations for school tours.
