International Youth Music Tours

Youth Music Tours

Our Youth Music tour portfolio of destinations have been selected with the performance and leisure objectives of all youth ensembles in mind.

Our team’s in depth knowledge of the areas in which we operate, coupled with its ability to recommend the most appropriate methods of transportation, accommodation, venues and leisure options for groups of young performers is unrivalled.

  • Tailor-made concert tours for Youth Ensembles
  • All our tours are completely tailor-made. We know from experience that no two youth ensembles are the same, and this is why your tour, including travel, accommodation, performances and excursions will be planned in accordance with your ensemble’s overall performance and leisure objectives in mind.

  • Specialist Concert Tours Team
  • When you start liaising with us you will be assigned to one of our specialist Concert Tour Consultants who will in the first instance provide you with a completely tailor made quotation ready for you to launch to your members and their parents. Once booked, you will then work alongside a Concert Tour Coordinator who will create a detailed itinerary that meets both the performance and leisure objectives of your group.

  • Safety and Financial Security
  • As assured members of the STF, holders of the LOTC quality badge, ABTA bonded and ATOL licensed you can be confident that we have taken every possible measure to ensure the safety and financial security of your youth ensemble while on tour.
