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. Italy is our speciality but every year we also offer one other European-focussed tour.The tour length is 2.5 – 3.5 weeks, although in some cases it may be possible to just join part of a tour ( e.g. only for the Opera Festival or La Scala section  )

For clients from overseas ( outside of Australia and New Zealand ) we normally meet you at the first tour hotel, leaving you to make your own flight arrangements from your nearest international departure point. We are happy to organise land transfers and even extra travel prior to or after our tour. In the past we have welcomed clients from the United Kingdom, the United States and Singapore to join our hosted tours.

In addition to offering our hosted tours to our overseas clients, we also offer shorter, independent ‘opera mini-breaks’  (normally 3 nights) in some of the world’s iconic opera capitals, including Sydney, Venice, Milan, Parma, Paris, Palermo and Naples.  These are ideal for opera lovers from United Kingdom, U.S.A., Singapore or in fact anywhere in easy reach of Italy, Paris or Sydney. We have overseas accounts in UK Sterling, USD, Euro and SGD as well as an easy online credit card payment system, ensuring low-cost payments from your country. To enquire about our Opera Mini-Breaks or joining one of boutique hosted tours, CLICK HERE to contact us. We are always happy to call you in your time zone to discuss what makes our tours so unique.

Our tailor-made hosted 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 hosted 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.  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.

Every hosted tour offered is ‘guaranteed departure,’ and they always sell-out!
