After working in the Travel Industry for over 30 years I have had the great fortune to work in many destinations and visit some amazing places. Travel is not just an experience – it is memories & knowledge. I love having the opportunity to create those memories for our groups. – Sarah Newman Music Tours Operations Manager

Don't take our word for it …

Beautiful scenery. We covered a lot in our tour but the students have responded very positively and are already asking where we are going next. [Performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival was] an amazing opportunity and very memorable for all concerned. The stage was exciting and the students are still talking about this concert even now. — St. Bartholomew's School , July 2018
