Our lovingly designed, personally hosted tours feature the magic of music...

Soprano Jennifer Parish and baritone Stewart Cameron delight in sharing their passion for travel. They design their hosted tours for lovers of good music, fascinating destinations and the finer things in life. Destinations in Europe and Asia are offered or, closer to home, travel packages to attend their annual 'Opera in Paradise' Festival, the annual 'Opera on the Harbour' in Sydney and other special musical events. Each tour is tailor-made from the ground up, to include thrilling and personally-selected performances,  as well as special experiences not offered by large travel companies. Our tours are so popular, they are all 'guaranteed departure ' ( not dependent on numbers ), so you never run the risk of being 'cancelled'.

We also offer a Group Travel service for choirs, schools and clubs. Let us create a fun & unique trip for you, based on your schedule.
