Opera & Classical Music Tours, lovingly designed
….. and personally hosted

Soprano Jennifer Parish and baritone Stewart Cameron welcome you to their premium tours for lovers of opera, classical music and ”the good life.’  A delight in sharing our passions of music and travel saw the birth of Music Lovers Tours, a boutique travel company based in Australia. We specialise in group tours for independent, like-minded people, offering only three or four of our unique, keenly-anticipated tours each year.Our tailor-made tours are unrivalled, with every aspect of travel, including performances, booked direct with suppliers. This ensures not only smooth running but consistently high standards. It is no surprise that our tours boast an extremely high percentage of repeat clients.

In addition to performances, each of our Opera & Classical Music Tours features a sparkling itinerary taking in various attractions and tours relating both to music and to broader fascinations in the cities, towns and regions visited. Destinations in Europe and Asia are offered, with Italy a much-loved speciality. A ‘jewel in the crown’ annual tour is ‘Viva Verdi & La Scala.’ It takes in the world-acclaimed Festival Verdi in Parma, explores the life of Verdi, Pavarotti and other greats and includes performances at La Scala, Milan and La Fenice, Venice.

Each Music Lovers Tour is ‘tailor-made’ with all hotels, performances, visits, tours and other services, booked direct with our suppliers. We have excellent relationships with the various Opera Houses and theatres featured. Dealing ‘direct’ ensures a high standard, attention to detail and excellent value for money. Our tours are now so popular, clients avoid missing out by ‘Reserving a Place’ well before tours go on sale. Every tour offered is ‘guaranteed departure,’ and they always sell-out!Opera & Classical Music ToursOpera & Classical Music Tour
