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 Sweden

Stockholm is often described as the world’s most beautiful city.  It is built on 14 different islands and enjoys clean waters and sea breezes.  The city has stunning and extremely varied scenery in every direction, a visit to the 155m high Kaknas Tower for a view of the city is highly recommended. Stockholm has a variety of museums, theatres, sights, attractions and events that are sure to cater for everyone’s interests.

Gothenburg is located on the West coast of Sweden and the Gota river which runs through the city offers boat trips which are popular with visitors to the city.  Scandinavia’s largest theme park, Liseberg, is also nearby along with many heritage sites and museums.  The Kungsportsavenyn is often nicknamed the ‘Champs Elysees’ and has a cheerful, relaxed feel to it.  It is also home to the Gothia Cup, one of the World’s largest youth football tournaments, attracting close to 1,500 teams each year.
