Our music team have just returned from a four-day familiarisation trip to Budapest with a party of our music teachers. Budapest is an ideal destination for school orchestra tours and school choir tours.
In addition to seeing a number of hotels, the group visited a variety of potential concert venues, both indoor and outdoor, sacred and secular and sampled some excursions suitable for students. These included sightseeing, a river dinner cruise, a tour of a military hospital, participating in a medieval jousting show, a visit to a museum of music history and watching a traditional folk music performance.
Here are just a few of the wonderful comments some of the teachers who came with us gave us on their return:
“Being new to Club Europe, I gained a great deal of ‘peace of mind’ and appreciation for the way that details are dealt with by your team.”
“It was also a great opportunity for me to talk to other music teachers who have much more experience running performing trips than I have and to learn from them.”
“The Budapest fam trip was simply brilliant from start to finish! You had obviously gone to great lengths to ensure we had the best possible experience, and I will definitely be recommending both Budapest and Club Europe very highly!”
“It is not often that my expectations are exceeded by such a degree. Budapest is a lovely city and I now feel confident that the school has made the right choice for our tour in 2015.”
